Recently, I wrote about the affects of domestic abuse and the fear that women experience at the hands of violent men. Taylor Armstrong of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was one of these women. She claimed her soon-to-be ex-husband, Russell Armstrong, often hit her. Russell admitted to shoving her from time to time, but it seems the backlash he experienced was too much to handle as he has ended his own life.
According to sources, 47-year-old Russell Armstrong was found dead in his Beverly Hills home last night at 8pm. His roommate found him in his bedroom where he hung himself and called the authorities. Police and fire fighters arrived at the scene and pronounced Russell dead at 8:16pm.
A suicide note has yet to be found.
As for Taylor, authorities informered her of Russell’s death last night. Makes you think twice about exposing yourself to the world on reality TV and the aftermath of violence. It never ends well.
