According to TMZ, Russell Armstrong, husband of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, Taylor Armstrong, was found dead late Monday.

Armstrong, 47, reportedly hanged himself. He was found in his bedroom in California by a roommate.

After Officials arrived on the scene Armstrong was pronounced dead.

The death is an apparent suicide although TMZ is reporting that no note was found at the scene.

Russell was the father to Kennedy, 5.

Armstrong’s estranged wife, Taylor, filed for divorce last month.

Her troubled marriage played out last year on “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” For this coming season’s trailer, Taylor seemed still be struggling with her marriage. She cried out in one scene “I feel like I’m breaking,” to which castmate, Adrienne Maloof came to her aid and told her she may be having a nervous breakdown. Season 2 premieres Monday, September 5, at 9 p.m.

Earlier this week, Taylor told E!, “Unfortunately for me this year, there were a lot more tears, a lot more pain.” And went on, “It’s been such an emotional ride for me this year. And it’s one thing to experience it, but then to watch it again on television and know that millions of other people are watching, it’s going to be tough.”
