Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Russell Armstrong has apparently committed suicide via hanging and his ex-wife Barbara Frederickson is not mincing words in regards to who she feels is to blame. She has told Radar that, “I don’t care for her (Taylor Armstrong) at all. I think she’s the reason for this.”
Tragically , in addition to his daughter with Taylor, Russell has left behind a son with Frederickson who was married to Armstrong in 1997. The two separated not long after the birth of their son. She added that:
“She’s not who she says she is and I told him to please be careful with this woman… I warned him! She’s bad news and she drove him into this.”
We’ve reported in the past on the many different aliases of Taylor and the often cloudy past for the couple. Frederickson made it clear that she did not believe the show was responsible and reiterated that it was her feelings that Taylor drove Russell into financial distress which led him into a downward spiral which ended in this very sad news.
I understand that Frederickson may have strong feelings about this but to come out so quickly with these harsh comments seems at best inappropriate.
