I'm still very shocked about this whole thing. WOW!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has released a statement via her rep about the apparent suicide of her husband, Russell Armstrong:
"Taylor Armstrong is devastated by the tragic events that have unfolded. She requests privacy at this time so that she may comfort her young daughter" (5-year-old Kennedy). The statement adds that Armstrong's "thoughts and prayers" are also with Russell’s 11- and 13-year-old sons from previous relationships.He had other young children? OMG!
I'm hearing reports that Taylor has NOT told her daughter that her father has died (how do you tell a young child that?!?!?), and also that BRAVO has their reality stars on lockdown from talking to press/media about the suicide. But many of them have taken to their Twitter accounts to order up support for Taylor and her daughter.
Some are posing the question if reality shows do more harm than good for people, especially those involved in marriages? It was no secret that Taylor was abused by her husband, even by his own admission. Did being on Housewives cause him to want to end his life? Or was it just a catalyst?
I guess we'll never know....
