Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Husband Russell Armstrong Has Allegedly Committed Suicide

Previews of the upcoming September 5 premiere of Season Two of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills seemed to indicate that the marital woes of Russell and Taylor Armstrong had accelerated from Season One.

That indication of marital woes did not indicate how bad it actually was.

Russell Armstrong has allegedly killed himself. Found hanging in a bedroom in his home on Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles.

No suicide note was found.

Russell Armstrong was 47 years old. He was pronounced dead at 8:15 LA (Pacific) Time, on Monday. An autopsy will take place on Wednesday.

Last month Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce, claiming Russell was physically abusive.

My hinky meter is in overdrive. Russell Armstrong did not seem like a kill himself sort of guy. From my point of view he was married to a nutcase who thought it made sense to spend $60K on daughter Kennedy's 3rd (or was it 4th?) year old birthday party.

Something seemed way off, to me, regarding Taylor Armstrong. Not a Kelly Bensimon level of nutcase. but still, someone who's marbles were rattling way out of control.

Whatever the reality of this reality is, it is still very sad.

The ratings for the Second Season of RHOBH will be through the roof. Just saying.
