Family of Real Housewives Husband Wants Footage Removed from Series
Taylor Armstrong, her head covered in a burka-like shawl, emerged from seclusion for the first time since her estranged husband's suicide. Draped in a fur-lined coat on a hot August day, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star ducked into a black SUV. Co-star Kyle Richards got into the front seat.
They were leaving Los Angeles's famous Forest Lawn cemetery. It's believed Taylor was making plans to send Russell Armstrong's remains to Texas, where his family lives.
And there's a new report that Russell hanged himself because his kinky sex life was about to be revealed in a tell-all book.
A source told radaronline.com "Not only was it going to come out that Russell was bisexual, but there were people on the record that were going to talk about the kind of sex he liked."
INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney asked Russell's sister Laurie Kelsoe about the claims.
"Was he depressed over that book coming out?" asked McInerney.
"I have no idea. I think that is the most ludicrous thing I've ever heard," said Kelsoe.
Russell's mom is also speaking out, saying she's ready to sue Bravo, the network that airs the Real Housewives franchise. John Ann Hotchkiss called in to HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell.
"If they do run footage of him at some point in the future, are you going to take any legal action?" asked Velez-Mitchell.
"Oh, I better not see one frame. I better not hear one frame. And that goes for all the family. We are circling the wagons," said Hotchkiss.
"And if there is a frame of him on a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills episode in the future?" asked Velez-Mitchell.
"There better not be," said Hotchkiss.
