The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong was found dead at a Los Angeles-area residence, LAPD officials tell ETonline. Fire department responded to a 911 call at 8:08 p.m. and found the 47-year-old, who was currently estranged from wife Taylor Armstrong, hanging as a result of an apparent suicide. He was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics, while The L.A. Coroner's department confirmed to ETonline that they will most likely perform the autopsy tomorrow.

The Armstrongs' rocky relationship was well documented on the first season of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, while the soon-to-launch second season was scheduled to play up the ensuing drama from their impending divorce.
"Unfortunately for me this year, there were a lot more tears, a lot more
pain," Taylor told Eonline just last week. "I know it's going to be
hard for me to watch a lot of [the new season]. It's been such an
emotional ride for me this year. And it's one thing to experience it,
but then to watch it again on television and know that millions of other
people are watching, it's going to be tough."
