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. The 47-year-old had been in the news recently after wife Taylor filed for divorce and claimed spousal abuse. (Click to see photos of the couple in happier days.)
