Russell Armstrong spent over sixty thousand dollars on a 40th birthday party for his estranged wife Taylor, just weeks before he killed himself. He has now left Taylor Armstrong liable for his massive financial debtsafter his death.
Russell Armstrong seems to have spared no expense in throwing Taylor an amazing party for her big 4-0. The special party at Beachers Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood cost over $60,000.
You may be forgiven that half of Hollywood was invited to the party. But apparently it was a very intimate party with a select group of people. At the time, there was no hint of marital problems between Russell and Taylor Armstrong.
An insider reveals. “On the surface both Taylor and Russell looked happy and were all smiles. He was very attentive to her, maybe even more than usual and I found that to be a bit odd. He followed her around and was by her side the entire time.”
The insider also found it odd that Russell Armstrong was splashing so much cash when the couple’s financial problems were well known. He pent thousands of dollars on expensive tables with bottle service and at the end of the night he turned heads when he presented Taylor with an amazing diamond tennis bracelet! It was a very grand and expensive gesture.”
Another interesting thing about the party was that Russell Armstrong was in charge of the guest lists and the only stars on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that he invited were co-stars Kyle Richards (who was out of town), Lisa Vanderpump and husband her Ken Todd.
Maybe Russell Armstrong hadn’t forgiven the other Real Housewives for supporting Taylor when he assaulted her so badly she had to get cosmetic surgery on her broken cheekbones.
“David Arquette was there and jokingly yelled ‘get the housewives out of our house,’” the source added. “That made everyone laugh.”
As Celebrity News and Style previously reported to you, Russell Armstrong committed suicide by hanging himself, and his body was found at a friend’s house in Los Angeles on August 15.
