Taylor Armstrong was very open about her marriage struggles with Russell Armstrong on season one of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and according to her fellow housewives, that doesn’t change in season two. Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer opened up just one week before Russell’s tragic suicide, about Taylor’s relationship with her estranged husband.
“I think that with Taylor’s situation, just seeing that unravel, it’s a very emotional subject… a very difficult subject,” Kyle said with Camille at her side while talking with the Associated Press about season two, which will start airing Sept. 5. “You are following all of our lives, and that is a part of Taylor’s life and what she is going through right now.”
Camille referenced her very public, nasty divorce from Kelsey Grammer earlier this year.
“We just finished filming, so yes, [Taylor and Russell's marriage woes and split are] very much a part of it,” Kyle added of what to expect on season two. “With Taylor, we all saw season one that they weren’t exactly a match made in heaven. It’s not much of a surprise.”
Camille also pointed out that Taylor “was vocal about what she was going through.”
Prior to filing from divorce from Russell this past month, Taylor and her estranged husband were seeking marriage counseling, which was filmed for the show. Not word yet from Bravo whether any of those scenes will be cut.
Russell was found dead Monday, hanging in a bedroom at a home on Mulholland Drive in L.A., which is believed to belong to one of his close friends.
No suicide note was found. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
“Taylor Armstrong is devastated by the tragic events that have unfolded,” Taylor’s rep tells OK! on behalf of the reality star. “She requests privacy at this time so that she may comfort her young daughter.”
Her rep added, “Her thoughts and prayers are also with Russell’s 11- and 13-year-old sons from previous relationships.”
