(Newser) – Russell Armstrong, the soon-to-have-been ex-husband of Real Housewife of Beverly Hills' Taylor Armstrong, was found dead last night. The fire department found Armstrong hanging in his Los Angeles bedroom in an apparent suicide, after he was initially discovered by a roommate, TMZ reports.
