News of the apparent suicide of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” husband Russell Armstrong, estranged from wife Taylor, came as a shock Tuesday — and she was allegedly present when his body was found.
According to TMZ, Taylor came to her ex’s home Monday evening after Russell was unresponsive to texts, and saw the property owner looking at his lifeless body.
The reality star “is devastated by the tragic events that have unfolded,” her rep said in a statement. “She requests privacy at this time so that she may comfort her young daughter.”
“I saw him a couple of weeks ago,” Russell’s friend and business partner John told Life&Style magazine. “He came in the office, we had lunch and he looked fine. I couldn’t tell that he was down. We talked about business. It looked like business was great for him, booming in fact.”
“When Taylor left him, he became very depressed,” his pal said. “He loved Taylor very much. He always said his wife was so beautiful. Taylor is a sweet, sweet lady. I feel sorry for her. We used to dine at their home. They tried to make it work.”
“He was a good dad,” his confidante said. “He was there every weekend for all three of his children. [Five-year-old daughter] Kennedy was the apple of his eye. I feel badly for his kids. It’s a shame that he’s gone. No problem is so big that you have to do this.”
Bruno Mars has an exploding music career and a model girlfriend … but for her, things aren’t quite so peachy.
Jessica Caban’s pals tell the New York Post she’s “scared for her life” due to overzealous fans who don’t like seeing her with the breakout star. And her rep says “haters” are telling her to back off from her boyfriend.
An angry female fan allegedly shouted at Jessica during a recent photo op, and her rep says, “From now on she’s getting a bodyguard when she goes to events.”
People, get a grip! You didn’t have a chance with Bruno Mars in the first place, and threatening his girlfriend sure won’t improve the odds.
And speaking of hotties we mortals wish we had a chance with, Prince Harry has split from his lingerie model girlfriend, Florence Brudenell-Bruce, the U.K.’s Mirror reports.
The comely couple had allegedly been dating since June. But Prince William’s little brother, who is evidently busy with his military career, didn’t want to be “tied down,” said a source.
“Harry has a lot on his mind at the moment. He is concentrating on his Apache helicopter training. After that, he’s expecting to return to Afghanistan,” said an alleged insider. “Harry enjoyed spending time with friends over the summer, but he doesn’t want to be tied down in a relationship when training, so he called time on Flee.” (That would be Florence’s nickname.)
Official royal sources, unsurprisingly, had no comment.
