Real Housewives star Taylor Armstrong and the family of her late husband, Russell Armstrong, cannot put their differences aside. Russell is to have two separate funerals, one arranged by each of the feuding parties.
In separate Taylor Armstrong news, it has also emerged that doctors may have failed in their professional duty by not reporting it to the police when she had to have surgery after Russell attacked her.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member Russell Armstrong was discovered dead last Monday, having hanged himself in the bedroom of is best friend’s home.
Armstrong’s attorney revealed that, due to disagreements between his estranged wife Taylor Armstrong and his family which could not be reconciled, there will be two funeral services.
It was always known that Russell’s Armstrong’s body was intended to be laid to rest back in Texas, where his family are. But Taylor had been working hard on funeral arrangements. It seems that Russell’s sister told Taylor to “go to hell” with her funeral plans. His family are “past the mad point” according to “The Wrap.”
The close family do no plan to attend the funeral in Los Angeles, organized by Taylor, even though they wish him to be buried in Texas. The plan is that Russell Armstrong’s remains will be taken back to Texas after the LA service. If none of the family attend, which seems likely to be the case, the attorney will arrange the transfer.
While all these funeral arrangements are being made, it has emerged that none of the hospital staff who treated Taylor Armstrong after her then husband Russell attacked her in June called the police about the attack.
Medical professionals must report suspected domestic abuse. However, when Taylor Armstrong had to have surgery on broken cheekbones, they did not report her injuries to the police.
The doctor who performed the surgery was apparently not Adrienne Maloof’s husband Dr. Paul Nassif. Whoever it was, he or the other hospital staff should have reported this as at least suspected domestic abuse. They didn’t.
Taylor Armstrong is putting all that behind her to arrange a funeral for her estranged husband and the father of her child. It seems his family cannot forgive Taylor for, as they see it, dragging him into reality TV. They agree with Russell who recently blamed The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills show for ruining his life.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres September 5 on Bravo.
