'Real Housewives'

DON'T BLAME US

For Russell's Suicide

9/6/2011 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090611_housewives_videoThree "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" are VERY UPSET with people who blame the show for "playing a major part" in Russell Armstrong's suicide -- saying the finger-pointing is simply "not fair."

Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof, and Kyle Richards all appeared on "Today" this morning -- where they spoke out against the criticism ... and claim they're taking the "high road" in the tragedy.

Maloof says they are working with Bravo in an effort to do something "positive" together -- by getting the message out about suicide prevention.

"HOUSEWIVES".... so what... who cares

Just plasticized horse-faced toothy mares,

"Reality" not really just plain hype

Creepy and shallow all the same type.

People are saying that he hung himself over a 1.5 million dollar lawsuit from mymedicalrecords.com in which both he and Alan Schram were about to be indicted on criminal charges of funneling money to offshore accounts for the Mossad. Just a rumor. Schram was murdered.

The Real Ex-Wives of Beverly Hills...Who the hell are they kidding. This has nothing to do with suicide prevention. Bravo PR can't fix this.

Armstrong is dead. He can't defend himself. Taylor Armstrong has not prooven, just accused of being beaten so badly she only missed 3 weeks of work. Of course. It was over botoxed or very bad plastic surgery for her so-called injuries.


They married wealthy men, divorced and got alot of money. That's it. Outside of Camille Grammar, who are these people?


Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah....my alimony can beat up your alimony. Still as fake and plastic, nothing real whatsoever.

The high road!?? Have you seen the ads on tv for the upcoming season? Whatserface with the fish lips, tears rolling down her face, I wanted to puke I was so disgusted. The tabloids are spinning it in her favor too. I always wonder if any of the big corporations that own these networks also own some of the mags because they promote the hell out these trashy shows. I have never and will never watch any of the this crap.

High road. Surely these over paid over made sluts and their male counter parts do not know how decent people perceive them. I had never watched the show but did a few minutes last night and was appalled at the depth of garbage America has sunk to in watching these trashy women and their husbands. Never again.

High road? Shut up. All of you, Andy Cohen included. Russell is to blame for Russell's death, but Bravo had you on their sister network to start drumming up interest in the new season and none of you said no. And don't say anything about contractually obligated to do press - with this type of topic, one public letter from your attorney to Bravo & the production company & you wouldn't be on the talk show circuit talking about it. High road and respect my arse. They're all still making a buck off of it.

I never watched any of the housewife shows but I always see them everywhere and they seem like the most tricked out vulgar group of anorexic women on TV. I'll pass.

First of all these people signed on to do this show. I don't blame the show anymore than I blame Russell's mother. Give me a break . . he was a big boy with BIG problems. His life had nothing to do with that show. He should have told Taylor "no" I won't participate if he thought it was exploitive (which it is). I'm sorry he felt he had to take his own life (father of 3 children now left to wonder why?); that was his decision and no one elses.

Shana Hughs AKA Taylor Ford's gold digging ways and feeble attempts to socially climb were instrumental in Russel's demise.
It doesn't matter how anyone wants to spin it.

She should bear the weight of her motivations and actions.

Typical trash talk coming from a place of guilt AND a need to deflect attention from the real culprit in Russell Armstrong's death - Andy Cohen and Bravo.
