Taylor Armstrong

Eyewitness When Husband's

Body Was Discovered

8/17/2011 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Armstrong
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong was at her estranged husband's house when his body was discovered, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Taylor tell us, she and Russell had been regularly communicating and were supposed to meet on Monday afternoon, but he was a no-show.  She became worried and began calling his friends, but none of them had heard from him. 

Taylor became increasingly alarmed and began frantically texting and phoning Russell, to no avail.

On Monday evening, Taylor and a friend went to the home where Russell was staying.  They found the owner of the home on the property.  While Taylor watched, the owner peered through Russell's bedroom window and saw his lifeless body hanging.

As TMZ first reported, the owner called 911 and Russell was declared dead at 8:16 PM.  Taylor believes Russell had been dead for hours.

We're told Taylor stayed at the house for hours after the body was found.

I believe his public humiliation on a reality TV show just added to his already-personal troubles (of his own doing) with his family and friends. But, he was certainly wrong to take the coward's way out. But really sad.

WTF is up with her lips and cheekbones!!?? Her lips look like two slugs spooning, and her cheekbones are so gross, they look disconnected from her lower jaw. Why do these ladies with $$$ do this?? Who is telling them that this is the look? She'd look gorgeous without the exaggerated cheek implants/fillers and botched up lips.

It's her fault. She drove him to it. All she cared about was the almighty dollar. Now she can go it alone. Back fired on her.

This is such a tragic set of events... i'm taken back at how insensitive people can be .. yeah Taylor prob has had too many plastic surgeries, can be portrayed as a Beotch on tv, but I don't understand y any of this is even being brought up. No one can bring you to take your own life, that's a very personal choice, and when u have children u have a responsibility to them. He obviously was a very troubled soul who had a strong history of domestic violence. Again, so sad I just hope his children are being taken care of, and all involved get the help they need.

If this poor man was depressed this was propably not the best time to drag him through a divorce. I have seen that show and those housewives seemed very shallow and plastic.

I think she did it! Bet he had some cash hidden away and she didn't want it going somewhere else. I think she did it.

Her lies and her publicity whoring were the noose around this mans neck. Watching her mug for the cameras every week and try to manufacture drama with this man that obviously loved her was unbelievable. The way she acted about the puppy he gave his daughter was terrible. She took the puppy away from that girl just like she took that little girls father from her. What a horrible person this is. Doubt if she can feel guilt in her plastic brain but I hope she does. Terrible tragedy. I'm sure she'll figure out a way to keep filming throughout her "pain" and "anguish". Even though he "abused" her. What a liar this woman is. Please take her off the TV and out of the media. She's a sad, pathetic excuse for a human and an insult to real housewives.

Very sad for him that he could see no other way. As for that wife? She looks like a freak! How about another trip to the plastic surgeon?
