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.

To say Taylor was a liar regarding domestic violence is ridiculous, he even admitted it himself. Unless you were there you have no right to say anything, as a victim myself my ex was wonderful out in public but behind closed doors he was a monster. Live it and you can talk otherwise, shut up!!!

Karma has a way of kicking people in the ass when they deserve it. Plastic money grubbing bitch. She is now responsible for someone's death. Hope it was worth it all to her and her fake plastic face.

Maybe he killed himself because he saw how his wife had mis-spent his money on terrible plastic surgery.

I think he was at the brink of a nervous breakdown, w/all the debt he was in, the divorce, Taylor accusing him of domestic violence it all came crashing down on him. And i guess he was battleling depression, that's a mixture for a person to give up. But i guess some people CAN'T handle the hard times that everyone goes through. I think he hung himself to prove Taylor a point-"You made me do this" So sad for the daughter-let's see how she grows up. GREED KILLS!

I hope the Police have the temerity to do a full investigation into what lead up to his suicide. In fact, they should put every Real Housewives and husbands in divorce mode on suicide watch. What is obvious about the creator of this show is that he or she is not very creative if petty arguments and highlighting someone’s divorce is the best they can offer a viewing audience.

How very sad. He took the easy way out.Too bad he couldn't man-up and deal with their financial situation, but maybe this was the ultimate revenge for ol' fake a## fishmouth for putting him on blast. Feel bad for the kids ,they did not deserve this.
