RHOBH’s Taylor Armstrong Slammed by Russell’s Exes for Profiting From His Death
While there has been an outpouring of sympathy for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Taylor Armstrong following her husband Russell’s suicide in August, some people are convinced Taylor’s using Russell’s tragedy to garner fame and attention. His exes, Barbara Fredrickson and Milette Fields both have sons with Armstrong, and Fredrickson told Star magazine Taylor didn’t call either she or Fields before the media broke the news.
“She could have said, ‘Before this hits the news, this is what happened.’ I would have done that, but she didn’t,” said Fredrickson. She also takes issue with the way Taylor treated Russell’s mother: “She never said, ‘We all need to be together as a family.’ That’s really odd behavior.”
Like some of Taylor’s cast mates, Fredrickson said she’s extremely angry that the 40-year-old reality star is penning a tell-all book about her life — and allegedly abusive marriage — with Russell: “Enough is enough! Let the children mourn and remember their father in a good light,” says Fredrickson. “Shame on her for profiting from her husband’s tragic death.”
