Taylor Armstrong

Coroner Wants an Interview

8/21/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The L.A. County Coroner's office wants to interview Taylor Armstrong about Russell Armstrong's death ... TMZ has learned after placing several calls to the Coroner.

We're told the Coroner has a number of questions about things she knows about Russell, including:

-- Russell's medical history
-- Medication history
-- References he may have made about suicide
-- State of mind in the weeks preceding his death

As TMZ first reported, Taylor was on the property where Russell committed suicide when his body was discovered, however she left before the Coroner arrived.  The Coroner's office has contacted Taylor about an interview, but they have not heard back from her.

The Coroner has already determined ... the cause of Russell's death was suicide by hanging, but the toxicology report is still pending.

Looks like The Real Housewives series has officially "jumped the shark". When Bravo had the NY reunion show I stopped watching. Neil Patrick Harres said every single one of them should be fired. I also thought this series has got to go. All they do is bitch steal use manipulate and hawk junk products like an info commercial. Get rid of Bethany as well. What a self righteous brat.

Perhaps Taylor didn't have to wait for the Coroner. If she answered all the important questions to the Police, then the Police waited for the Coroner. I do not think she had anything to do with his dying. Russell just couldn't cope with the world anymore. People do not think of others when they are thinking about dying at their own hands, but do send out messages someway of their intentions. Surely someone close to him saw his unhappiness.

I bet she was secretly hoping he would, thats the only way she could stay on the show. She helped push him into financial ruin, throwing a $50,000 bday party for a 5yr. old. Then she was wondering why he wasn't having fun the whole time! He was probably wondering how he was going to pay for it. The ugly fish faced BeeOtch.

TMZ would you please date these photos! If she's smiling after the suicide of her child's father, I want to slap her!

Is she too busy with book deals to call the coroner back? I haven't heard anything about a suicide note. If he did write one hopefully he put it in his pocket so the famewhore or Bravo's secret elves didn't get to it first.
Imagine what it will be like for Kennedy having to process this crap as she matures?

The women on that show are all one hot mess. There's no moving on from here. End this show!

No one is mentioning the fact that Taylor is being sued personally for misappropriation of funds (i.e stealing investor money) to fund her lavish lifestyle. Russell was also included in the suit. He had to set up false deals and steal so she could throw 50K birthday parties for her 4 year old. When the money ran she ran out...crazy ass gold digging b**ch.
