For the first time since her husband, Russell, took his own life, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong has issued a statement. Released through her rep, it reads:
"Taylor Armstrong is devastated by the tragic events that have unfolded. She requests privacy at this time so that she may comfort her young daughter," five-year old Kennedy, who sources say has not yet been told about her father.
Taylor also sends her"thoughts and prayers" to Russell’s 11- and 13-year-old sons from previous relationships.
The 47-year old was found dead in the home of a friend last night, his body discovered in the bathroom, with no suicide note to be found. He had recently been in the news because Taylor filed for divorce last month, citing physical and emotional abuse.
