Russell Armstrong

Family WILL Watch "RHBH"

To Protect His Image

9/5/2011 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0905_housvies_russel_armstrong_getty_exRussell Armstrong's family is watching tonight's "Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls" season premiere with extremely critical eyes -- and is prepared to take legal action ... depending on what they see.

Ron Richards, the attorney representing Russell's parents ... tells TMZ, the family wants to make sure nothing that "would make Russell look bad" airs in the highly anticipated premiere episode.

TMZ broke the story ... shortly before his death, Russell told a friend he was concerned about his negative portrayal on the show. Bravo has said it was doing some re-editing due to Russell's death ... but didn't specifically mention the premiere episode.

Richards says the family will explore legal options if they see something they don't like tonight.

You Reap What You Sow. No amount of editing could make him appear worse than he was in real life.
Sad the family cares more about his image in death than in life.

I don't mean to speak ill of the derly departed, but is this gay like the only person to ever kill him self in the state of california,or in the history of the united states. Let's face it being married to anyone of those plastic woman is enough to make a man kill himself. Let's move on TMZ, there has to be more interesting crap to report on, like who is Carlos Santana's gardener, or has Arnold found an even uglier girlfriend this week. Come on now...
