Taylor Armstrong

Battling In-Laws Over

Russell's FINAL Resting Place

8/18/2011 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-taylor-russell-armstrong2-EXRussell Armstrong's parents and his estranged wife, Taylor Armstrong, are thousands of miles apart in a heated battle over where Russell's remains will end up.

Multiple sources close to Taylor tell us the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star is not only planning a memorial for Russell -- she also wants him to be buried at a Los Angeles area cemetery.

But Russell's attorney Ron Richards says his former client's parents want their son's body returned to Texas -- where they live -- for cremation.

As TMZ first reported, Taylor and Russell had been back in touch recently -- despite the fact she filed for divorce last month.

Richards says he believes Russell's final wishes were to be cremated. If true, Taylor might have a tough time winning this battle.

From watching clips of that show on ET, she was going to divorce him. She and her little evil friends pushed the poor man to the edge and now that he's dead, she won't let him go. What a total bitch.

Whatever his Will stated. If there's nothing about type and location regarding the remains, step aside Taylor. You left. So let him go.

I don't see anyone saying she is a lovely person. But maybe when she says he was gay, maybe, just maybe she isn't lying about that? If so, can you blame her for not wanting to be with him, besides the fact he was bankrupt? Nothing wrong with being a gay man and having gay sex with other men, of course, but sometimes a gay man's wife might not be comfortable with the idea of her husband being banged by another guy or banging another guy? Maybe?

Russell had a violent past, according to ROL, being convicted of battery and having also broken another guy's teeth. What a sweetheart he was if this report is true, and all you naifs defending him should be embarrassed if this report is true:

Let's not let him have peace even in death sowe can have the camera crew on us pretending to be the grieving widow of the man we killed with our relentless greed, shall we?

It's mighty coincidental that Bravo is filming the new season right now when she's pulling this crap. She really is a soul-less monster.

Here is my take on the situation...I say these things based on what I have heard on the news and read on line. If he had a violent past, Taylor should have known about it. If not, she did not do her homework! If she knew, and she still chose to marry him...one would have to ask themselves, why. From what I understand, he at one time made good money and was successful. So, did she marry him for money and status? Ignoring his past?
Taylor was never and innocent party in that marriage. I could no*****ch those shows because the women were catty and heartless...Taylor included.
Let his parents have his remains...As others have said, she didn't want him anymore...he ran out of money!!

I think Taylor might off herself next, now that the fairytale image she wanted so badly for herself is coming unhinged in front of the entire world. The curtain has been pulled back, and the woman is all smoke & mirrors. How humiliating!

Typical controlling beach. I think she is seeing how much action this is getting and just wants the publicity.

This ultra homely *b*i*t*c*h* should have absolutely no say in his final disposition.

Send him home. Why bury him in the place that killed him?
