Taylor Armstrong “Drove ” Her Husband Russell Armstrong To Suicide, Slams His Ex-Wife!

Tue, August 16, 2011 3:08pm EDT by 16 Comments

Taylor’s husband was found dead on Aug. 15 and now his ex-wife Barbara Frederickson is attacking Taylor during this difficult time — isn’t this just wrong?

The last thing Taylor Armstrong needs right now is her late husband’s ex-wife running her mouth. Barbara Frederickson was married to Russell Armstrong in 1997 and they had a son, Aiden, now 13-years-old together. But instead of offering sympathy and grieving with her own family, she chose to speak out to RadarOnline make some incredibly insensitive and defamatory remarks.

“I don’t care for [Taylor] at all,” Barbara says. “I think she’s the reason for this.”

What a sick thing to say. Taylor filed for divorce last month citing irreconcilable differences, and sources tell HollywoodLife.com that Taylor is “beside herself and devastated ” by Russell’s suicide. Taylor and Russell had a daughter Kennedy, 5, together.

“She’s not who she says she is and I told him to please be careful with this woman … I warned him” Barbara ranted. “She’s bad news and she drove him into this … I don’t think it was the show. I think she [Taylor] drove him into financial stress and it just ruined him.”

Barbara had at one point issued a restraining order against Russell after citing abuse against her and her son Aiden.

“Russell threw me to the ground and slapped me across the face,” Barbara said in court documents filed in 2004. “The police were called to Russell’s and my residence during our marriage because Russell hit me, blackened my eyes, kicked me in the back, threw crystal drinking glasses at me, and spit on me.”

Sadly Russell has three kids, now left without a father : son Aiden, 13 with Barbara, son Griffin, 11 with former fiancée Milette Fields and daughter Kennedy, 5, with Taylor.

Taylor is trash. Her new husband must be an idiot. He will find out what he signed up for and deserves all the pain he’s n for.

In stead of siting her bashing Taylor. First its a show in which we all only see what bits and pieces Bravo puts together and not a clear picture. This woman yes, should be at home with her son, at his time of need of losing his father. Not bashing Taylor. She knows that Russell was abusive! There are court documents that she had filed. Obviously this woman is trying to get her 15 minutes. It is truly awful that people act like this. Russell was a coward to think that killing himself was a way out. He should have gotten HELP!!

I think you can clearly see what Taylor is like on the show. I dont think Russel’s ex made it up out of thin air. Its really sad for his family.

Hope Russell Armstrong sister sue Taylor for his dead. Hope she can get every dime from Taylor. She either drove him to suiside or she hide and paid somebody to kill him. Rightnow, it too soon to find out who kill Russell, I believe investigation still going on. The true will come out later. Bravo needs to downside and get rid of Taylor, it bad for reality show.

It just seems to me that these women are just straight out image whores. As she and her husband struggle to keep up with the rest of the fake rich folks in BH she spends a reported $60,000 for a 4 year old birthday party. Taylor wanted to be on the show and when it came time to compromise her marriage on national TV she was more than ready to throw Russell under the bus. Sad really to watch these botox,pulled face women just stoop to the lowest of low just for a pretend status.

She merely said what everyone else is thinking.

And obviously if he has an abusive past, it wasn’t Taylor that drove him to this type of behavior. I don’t have sympathy for a man who is selfish enough to leave his 3 children without a father. And I totally agree, she needs to be home consoling her son and not getting paid to make a statement by some trash site.

Considering she filed a restraining order against him and he was charge (and plead guilty to) abuse then his other ex(girlfriend) also filed a restraining order against him, NEITHER women had a right to make such nasty accusations against Taylor! The man had mental health problems which resulted in him being an abusive man towards Barbara, the ex-girlfriend (mother to his other son) and Taylor. He chose to take his own life rather than to seek help.

Maybe if Taylor Armstrong married for love and not money she would not be in the awful situation she is in now!

What a vile woman. Go be with your son in what must be an awful time for him. This is so inappropriate less than 24 hours after his death. I am no Taylor fan, but this is just disgusting.
