Russell Armstrong's Parents DID NOT Attend His Funeral

| Filed under: Sad SadReal Housewives


Last night, a memorial was held in the Hollywood Hills for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong. His wife, Taylor Armstrong, was joined by her costars to say good-bye to Russell, but she was not joined by her husband's family, who opted to decline their invitation.

Russell's parents and family reportedly refused to attend the funeral, claiming that they felt like it was more of a publicity stunt for Taylor than a way to remember Russell. Instead, the Armstrong family will be having their own memorial for Russell in Texas in the next several weeks. As one sources explains:

"Let's face it, there is no love lost between Taylor and Russell's family. Russell's family wanted no part of the memorial, they felt it was all for Taylor. Taylor was relieved that they didn't attend. She wanted to be surrounded by her friends and just say good-bye to Russell.”

Sounds like it was for the best. The last thing anyone needed was a fight to break out during the service. This way, everyone gets the chance to remember them the way they want to, with the people they want to. We just hope Russell's parents put their differences aside for Kennedy's sake. Poor little girl needs all of her family around her right now.

    Can't blame them. How awful to have your son commit suicide, then for his funeral to be turned into a circus. I don't blame them at all for wanting their own private ceremony. As far as his daughter goes - she is just another victim of a stupid reality show.

    Saying they "declined their invite" and her "costars" not friends Taylor's friends were there, Doesn't that sort of scream publicity stunt? Is this done? do people send invites to funerals? leak beatings that are not public information because of police being called or hospital or court records?

    Sad, I'm sure Andy Cohen was sorry he couldnt record it for drama and ratings.
    Dont worry Andy I'm sure you"ll still get another fat bonus

    I can see why they didn't attend. Their son obviously didn't enjoy mingling with Taylor's 'co-stars' so I doubt they would either.

    Re: Whatevers!!! – He may not have cameras in the actual ceremony, but you know they will tape everything up from planning it, to finding out the parents aren't going, to getting ready, to weeping in the limo, walking to the doors, and then pick up the story after they leave, and then talk , console , laugh , hug and make bank off of this whole situation. Next headline should be "Taylor to make Millions off of husband's funeral…" not unlike Kardashian making Millions off of her wedding.

    Good for them for not putting up with the famewhoring. That's what Kris Humphries' parents should have done- had their own wedding reception.

    Good on them. She is totally make this whole thing about her and casting shade on his memory when he's not here to defend himself. Why on earth would they want to farewell their son, surrounded by a hateful bitch and her fame-whore friends? And yeah, surely you don't have to be invited to your own child's funeral. This whole thing wreaks of American tackiness at it's worst.

  8. @v@ says – reply to this


    What would it hurt for them to attend FOR Taylor and their grandkids, and then simply have another for themselves back home? It smacks of more family abuse, imo. If she's already been smacked around, and then selfishly abandoned by suicide, them not showing up is number 3 on the hit list.

  11. 11

    all for publicity…..because none of the real housewives liked Russell after Taylor got done constantly complaining about him…..

    Taylor is a whore bitch.

    I heard she gave his parents half of his ashes to be buried in texas. She was dating another man and divorcing Russell so I don't understand why she wanted any part of him. when they were in vegas and she complained russell left for business, he actually left for a few hours to attend a baseball game for his son. She was jealous of his other children and wasn't kenedy around lisa's dog or any other animal without an allergic reaction, I think she was mad because kenedy like the dog better than the $60,000 party
