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.

Bravo made this guy look like a cold fish. Turns out, he was anything but. Bravo should foot the bill for sure. And Im a huge Housewives fan. But they really ganged up on this guy.

She wanted nothing to do with this guy and was divorcing him. And now she wants to plan his funeral?

I smell a book or TV deal coming...

This poor excuse for a human being, should at the very least, step back and allow his family to make all the arrangements. NO agreement, she should have no input on his funeral arrangements. She gave those rights away when she filed for divorce and then continued to annihilate him in the press. She basically killed him. Why does she care about his funeral? She didn't care about his life? Money whore! She should be hanging her head and not coming out of her house right now. She should be so ashamed that she allowed fame or the prospect of it become more important than her husband's name/reputation. What is Bravo giving her some extra $$ if she can get the funeral to be in L.A.. She's disgusting and I will never watch that show ever again. Bitch!

Taylor and Russel did the show because they needed the money...end of story. She wanted to brag and show off her $$$$ and fancy 60k Birthday parties and now she has paid the ultimate price. I feel bad for Russells family, however I do not blame Bravo they all know what there getting into when they sign the dotted line. All the money in the world can't buy happiness or looks.

These people are all adults who signed up and knew what they were getting themselves into from the begining. Russell was abusive before the show started and nobody can predict a suicide. Bravo can't be responsable for someone with a hidden mental health issue.

Really tired of this woman getting demonized. She's not a bitch or whore for wanting a divorce. Geez, are we in Afghanistan or one is to blame for the suicide except Russell.

he must have been so afraid of her ugly face he couldn't take it anymore. She drove him to the grave wanting things she couldn't afford. it's called living within your means not keeping up with the joneses. my heart goes out to russell's family. this woman is a lunatic with all that horrible plastic surgery gone wrong!

This is the best thing that's happened to fish lips in awhile...Russel's suicide means ALL eyes are on her.
She must be in heaven.
