The Real Housewives Of New York Discuss Russell Armstrong's Suicide

With the season two debut of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premiering last night, the Housewives of New York are opening up with their thoughts on the tragic suicide of Russell Armstrong.

Kelly Bensimon and Ramona Singer both agree the show isn't to blame for his death, with Ramona expressing:

I think it is very tragic. But I don't think that the reality show is to blame for his unfortunate death. I think he had problems. And it's sad when someone has so many problems, they feel the only way they can eliminate their pain is by taking their life.

And Kelly concurring:

I would never blame it on the show. You don't know what happens behind closed doors. And no one can judge. It's no one's job to do that. A lot of people speculate.

Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord didn't want to say much, though.

Sonja said her heart goes out to Russell's estranged wife Taylor, but that "sometimes being helpful is just staying out of [her] business.

Alex didn't feel comfortable talking a whole lot, either, saying "We did what we did privately. And that's that."

Okay, so not every Housewife wants to open up, but we're glad to know they're all there for Taylor.

And we are too!

Remember guys, if you're ever contemplating suicide, it gets so much better. We promise. You ARE loved and there IS an answer. Please call 1-800-273-8255 if you ever need someone to talk to. They're amazing!

    They guy had problems that weren't attributable to the show and probably were there long before he signed on. The thing is, a reality show then takes those problems and puts them on display for the whole country to see. He probably just couldn't face that anymore. That and having your wife divorce you because you have no money would be enough to push someone over the edge. All Taylor is interested in is fame and pretending she's rich. A guy who is broke and has problems is of no use to her.

    Sonja Morgan is the only one with her head screwed on right. Bravo, the golddigging widow, and the rest of the tramps need to move on and not rehash this poor man's tragedy.

    THAT'S the picture you choose for Alex? The rest get pictures in gowns and she gets something like a Halloween costume? Good God Perez.
