It has been confirmed that Russell Armstrong, husband to "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong, died by suicide. Chief Coroner Investigator, Craig Harvey, told Us Weekly that Armstrong used an electrical cord to hang himself in the bedroom of an L.A. home where he was staying, although a suicide note has yet to be uncovered.
"The final manner of death is suicide," Harvey concluded.
Armstrong was found dead on Monday and news of his untimely death shook the Bravo family. "Housewives" from the Beverly Hills, New York, New Jersey and Atlanta casts all reached out to a devastated Taylor Armstrong via Twitter, sending their support and condolences.
But not everyone is supporting the family in this difficult time. Rapper and actor, Ice-T took to Twitter to make light of the serious situation. "Bad joke ... But alotta those wives would make me consider it," he inappropriately tweeted.
Not long before his death, Taylor filed for divorce from Russell -- a reality plot point that was intended to be heavily documented in the forthcoming season of "RHOBH." Bravo has yet to disclose how they will deal with the previously filmed footage of Russell and the dissolution of his marriage with Taylor.
