RumorFix has been following the tragic story of Russell Armstrong for the past three months and has been leading the pack in breaking exclusives.
That’s why Dr. Phil asked RumorFix to be on his show Monday.
RumorFix Editor Richard Ayoub was the last journalist to speak to Russell back in July. The phone interview took place on the day that Russell’s wife, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong, filed for divorce. “It’s a devastating time,” Russell told Richard. But Richard reveals that Russell spoke with no emotion — very business-like. His main concern: “Not looking worse than he already looked.”
Two days before the venture capitalist committed suicide, he spoke to his grandmother, Jean Anders. RumorFix has the exclusive details of what we believe is the last conversation Russell had before he took his own life. Jean tells us that Russell said he had “the biggest decision to make.” He said he was out of options and didn’t know what to do next.
Jean spoke to Russell a day later and he said he had made his decision.
Russell Lynn Armstrong was laid to rest on August 24 at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills. RumorFix reported exclusively that a teary-eyed Taylor delivered the eulogy wearing her wedding ring. Taylor talked about her relationship with Russell and her commitment to keep their daughter close to his two sons from other relationships.
Although the LA coroner, who we’re told is a fan of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, ruled Russell’s death a suicide, RumorFix was first to report that his sister, Laurie Kelsoe, doesn’t believe her brother would take his own life. The Texan is demanding a murder investigation and she’s consulting with an attorney and private eye to get some answers.
RumorFix will continue to cover the story of Russell Armstrong and we promise to tell you what’s true, what’s still a rumor and fix the lies.
