In today’s completely shocking and devastating news, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong has died of an apparent suicide.

Russell, husband of Taylor Armstrong, was found hanging in his bedroom on Mulholland Drive. Sources tell TMZ the L.A. City Fire Department arrived at Russell’s home on Monday night and pronounced him dead at 8:16 PM.

Authorities are saying they did not find a suicide note. This tragedy comes less than a month after Taylor filed for divorce alleging physical and verbal abuse. After Taylor revealed her abuse allegations, it was discovered that other exes of Russell (an ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend) had also alleged physical abuse and had filed restraining orders against him in the past. Russell also had other legal issues, including bankruptcy and several lawsuits.

Russell and Taylor have a 5-year-old daughter – Kennedy. Russell is survived by other children as well. Russell was 47-years-old. We will bring you more news once it becomes available.

THOUGHTS?

UPDATE – Russell had been having a hard time dealing with his past issues becoming public as earlier this year, he had his attorney contact us about taking down a report we did about his past legal issues.

UPDATE #2 – RadarOnline is reporting Taylor has been “hysterical” since finding out about Russell’s suicide last night. Taylor “has been up all night. She is hysterical, and can barely speak. She has no idea why Russell would do this. She doesn’t know how she is going to be able to tell her daughter, Kennedy,” a source close to the situation reveals.

UPDATE #3 – Russell’s attorney tells TMZ Russell was at his wits end over his impending divorce from Taylor in addition to his mounting financial problems in the days leading to his death. Russell’s lawyer Ronald Richards states, “I feel bad because his credit cards weren’t working … He had tremendous financial problems.” Richard adds that even if Russell has a will, he doesn’t have any assets.

Following months of speculation, it has now been confirmed that the Real Housewives of Miami will be returning for a second season!

Housewife Alexia Echevarria confirmed the news via her twitter page! “Dear Followers, Yes, #RHOM2 is coming back but there is going to be some BIG changes and that’s all I can say…… so Stay tuned!” tweeted Alexia.

As of the moment, there is no word yet on the casting changes we can expect though the general consensus seems to be that Larsa Pippen will not be returning. The reason? Well for starters, she is no longer residing in Miami since moving to Chicago with her husband and family.

At the end of the day, it’s safe to assume most fans of the show will be okay with any of the housewives getting the axe as long as Mama Elsa Patton returns! Let’s face it, Elsa was THE star of the show.

Ding dong the witch is dead Kate Gosselin’s reality TV career is officially over!

Just moments ago, the TLC network announced it has canceled Kate’s reality show Kate Plus 8.

“TLC has decided not to renew another season of Kate Plus 8,” the network said in a statement. “By the end of this season Kate Plus 8 will have hit the 150 episode mark (including Jon & Kate Plus 8); an exceptional milestone. TLC hopes to check in with Kate and the family periodically with specials in the future.”

The cancellation of Kate’s show comes as no surprise as we reported back in April that ratings for the show were at their lowest in years. At that time, new episodes of Kate Plus 8 were averaging just over 874,000 viewers per episode.

Earlier this year, a report came out stating – “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job.”

Well folks, it now appears Kate, 36, will indeed have to get a real J.O.B to care for her plus eight.

The first part of the Basketball Wives season 3 reunion airs tonight on VH1!

Following what can only be described as the most dramatic season yet, the ladies gather together in the same room to rehash some of the season’s most dramatic moments. Meeka and Tami will get into it again, while Royce will of course argue with the “circle.” John Salley returns to host the show again this year. It airs tonight at 8/7c on VH1 and a preview clip is below! There are also rumors that Eric Williams might make an appearance on the show (part 1 or part 2) to discuss the drink tossing incident.

In other news, the show’s resident sh*t starter executive producer Shaunie O’Neal is now speaking out against the recent fighting on the show. This is after it came out that the episode featuring the Tami Roman and Meeka Claxton fight was one of the highest rated of the season. In fact, last week’s finale episode with the drink throwing incident was its highest rated in over 2 years with over 2.6 million viewers tuning in.

Well Shaunie is now claiming she is embarrassed by what the show has become. “When I started the show I really just wanted to follow this group of ladies around. We all have a common bond; we understand each others’ lives. It started as that. Since then, it’s taken on a life of its own,” Shaunie told FOX411’s Pop Tarts. “I never imagined it would be a group of ladies fighting and arguing that way that they do. That was never part of the plan.”

It didn’t end there as Shaunie reveals she feels conflicted that the episodes with the fights garner higher ratings. “I hate that it has to be a fight or an argument that gives us 4.2 million viewers. I hate that, but it’s something where I’m working as hard as I can to show some type of balance, because it is there. We’re going to try to do more of that in season four,” she said. “I know that people love the fighting and the arguing, but I do want to have some positive in there somewhere.” Right Shaunie. Are you buying it?

Camille Grammer

Following months of taking very public shots at her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, it appears Camille Grammer has finally realized she went too far this time around.

Days after publicly stating her ex-husband of 13 years had a small err manhood, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is now apologizing for the low blow comment.

In a statement to TMZ, Camille states: “Some joking remarks I made to Kyle Richards got picked up and caused my ex-husband great embarrassment and for that I sincerely apologize. While the media added words and blew it out of proportion, I acknowledge my part in this and regret my remarks.”

It also seems Camille’s comments are a result of the bitter custody dispute going on between the two exes.

She adds, “I offered a 50/50 physical split with joint custody and was soundly rejected… Now he will only communicate through lawyers and others and I fear the message we’re sending our children.” Well surely telling the world their father has a small package can’t be good for the kids.

In today’s Real Housewives of New Jersey news, it seems Jacqueline Laurita’s friendship with costar Teresa Giudice might be in trouble.

The reason? Well Jacqueline made some very interesting/cryptic tweets over the weekend which appeared to be about Teresa but we’ll let you be the judge. A screen shot of those tweets are below –


Even more interesting? Jacqueline no longer follows Teresa on twitter! Plus Jacqueline was at Melissa’s release party on Friday with Teresa and the rest of the RHONJ castmates so perhaps something went down at that event. The first tweet (the last one in the above screenshot) was made at 1:42am on Saturday morning.

In other NJ news, as her new VH1 show Famous Food continues to flop, former RHONJ star Danielle Staub continues her desperate attempt to stay in the news.

Almost a week after claiming Melissa Gorga was the one feeding her information about Teresa last year, Danielle now has her sights set on “exposing” the RHONJ stars for reasons only known to Danielle. Below are some of her tweets –

“I am sick of what they do to my family did anyone ever think about that? something bad happens to them they drag my Family down!”

“If I disclosed all the info that people have sent to me ~ clown head would even cry real tears this time – people see through their facade”

“They broke all deals by continuing to speak about me one full year I stayed quiet – I thought they’d stop!! Enough already!!”

As we reported days ago, Danielle appears to be working hard to get her story about Melissa and Teresa out to a national magazine.

And finally, an all new episode of the RHONJ titled ‘Child’s Play No More‘ airs tonight on Bravo! On the 13th episode this season, Teresa’s children have a play date with Melissa’s children, yet the kids seemingly show more maturity than their parents. Meanwhile, Kathy mulls over how to nurture her teen daughter. And Ashley’s father pays her a surprise visit, but there may be more going on than simply a family reunion.

It airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below –

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JACQUELINE’S TWEETS ARE ABOUT TERESA? THOUGHTS ON DANIELLE’S COMMENTS, THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Just as suspected by most, it appears those convenient reports of Jill Zarin contemplating leaving the Real Housewives of New York was indeed just an attempt to save face.

The reason? Well according to a new report by the Rumorfix, the decision to leave or continue the show is NOT up to Jill! It is completely up to Bravo as Jill remains under contract with the network.

In fact, a source close to the show confirms that if Jill does leave the show, it won’t be because she chose to move on.

“Bravo decides who comes back, they are the ones who draw up the contracts. It seems like Jill is just trying to give herself an out in case she isn’t asked back, or just phased out,” reveals the source.

So there you have folks, this appears to be nothing but a poor attempt by the Jillousy to save face in case Bravo decides to fire her.

Personally, believe it or not, I would like to see Jill remain on the cast as she is a key part of the show as is Ramona Singer. I think starting with an all new cast will prove to be a risky move for Bravo. A good option might be to fire Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop, and then bring in 3 new housewives aka some new blood to join Jill, Ramona, LuAnn, Alex and Sonja.

The bad news for Jill however is that fans of RHONY feel very differently. Our poll asking whether or not you want Jill to return had over 82% of fans voting NO! A similar poll done by the Rumorfix had over 83% of fans voting no. The question now is will Bravo listen?
