Taylor Armstrong

Russell's Parents and I Agree

On Funeral Arrangements

8/19/2011 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Taylor Armstrong
and Russell Armstrong's parents are in agreement -- Russell will be cremated in Los Angeles and the funeral will be held in L.A. as well ... TMZ has learned.

Taylor's family law attorney, Troy Christiansen, tells TMZ, Taylor is "outraged" at attorney Ron Richards, who has said Taylor and her lawyer lied when they said they had looped Russell's family in on the funeral arrangements. 

Richards claimed that Taylor excluded Russell's family from any decisions.

As we reported, there was a conflict over whether Russell's body would stay in L.A. or be taken to Texas, but Christiansen says it's all been resolved and everyone is in agreement.

Christiansen said there was never an issue about cremation -- Russell expressly said he wanted to be cremated and not buried.  And since Taylor was Russell's wife at the time of his death, she's the one making the funeral arrangements, but Christiansen says Russell's family is fine with it.

Will Bravo film the funeral then air it and make a profit off of it? I can't believe this poor guy wasn't even getting paid for being on tha silly show, he got to be humiliated for free.

My Brother in Law (44) years young and a very nice guy committed suicide by hanging himself three weeks ago. He as well was distraught over a failed relationship.

Depression and suicide is no joke or laughing matter - I can tell you first hand.

I found my B-I Laws lifeless body hanging from a rope after several days of not calling us back.

For all you making a joke of this - please have some respect for the loss of a life and the pain one be in to commit such an act.

I pray for Russell, his friends and family for peace and comfort(regardless of the life style he lived-or what you think to be true- as we are all sinners). I pray he had Jesus in his heart and life as only he can be perfect and allow us into his Kingdom.

please first of all may angels sit on the shoulders of their sweet, innocent children. with that said, domestic abuse is a family secret that has been swept under the carpet for to long. i know how devestating a sucide is for anyone i lost my brother.too soon because depression is stillto hurtful to even talk about. taylor thank you for getting the word out there are inspiring. i remember your speech at a fund raiser about abuse.. dont give up now. much love to you and your family, which includes russles other children.God Bless you oxoxoxo

Russell AMstrong went bankrupt in 2005. Just AFTER he married Taylor. I assume she didn't married him for his money.

Amstrong signed to be in the show. Nobody forced him to do it. The rest of the housewives they are quite wealthy but I didn't see them to spend a huge amount of money on the show. Amstrong and Taylor they were the only ones who they spend $ 60,000 in their daughter's birthday. The rest of the cast they were shocked. What I'm trying to say it's that Amstrong didn't refuse to spend that crazy amount of money. He was in charge of their finances. Blaming Bravo and everyone else it means he didn't want to take charge of his own decisions.

She didn't want him when he was alive! and shouldn't his three kids have a say in where he's buried?
