According to a shocking new report by RadarOnline, Russell was not only bisexual, but might have taken his own life because a third party had informed him they would be making that revelation in a tell-all book about him.
In fact, Radar claims Russell’s alleged bisexuality was the real reason Taylor Armstrong finally decided to file for divorce last month, and not because of mounting financial problems or alleged physical abuse.
“When Taylor found out about Russell’s gay explorations, that was the final straw for her and it prompted the divorce,” an insider close to the situation states. “She could put up with the fights about money and being sued, but the fact that Russell might have been cheating on her with a man was just too much for her.”
“About six months ago Taylor confided in a close friend that she’d found history for a gay website called Adam4Adam.com on Russell’s laptop,” the insider continued. “He was also spending a lot of time at the gym, but his body wasn’t changing, which she claims led her to believe he was meeting with men he’d met off the website and not spending time working out as he claimed.”
Another insider adds that Russell was approached for comment about the impending tell-all book, which included great detail about what he liked in the bedroom. “Not only was it going to come out that Russell was bisexual, but there were people on the record that were going to talk about the kind of sex he liked,” the source said. “He was into S&M type stuff; choking, rough-housing and slapping.”
Russell’s attorney Ronald Richards however ademantly defends his client citing the report is a total fabrication. Ronald states he was not aware of any tell-all book or adultery when it came to Russell. And unfortunately Russell is no longer here to defend himself.
Meanwhile, Russell’s mother John Ann Hotchkiss revealed yesterday that she blames the Bravo network for her son’s death. During an interview on HLN on Wednesday evening, Ann stated Russell suffered from being criticized on the show by other cast members, and was anxious about the new season.
“’Mom they’re just going to crucify me this season,’” he told his mother recently, Ann said. “I don’t know what to do. I’ll never survive it.’” She added: “I thought he meant business-wise.”
In fact Radar is reporting Russell’s family is seriously considering suing Bravo. “Bravo is at fault and somebody needs to pay,” Russell’s step brother Wade Jackson revealed. “Russell’s whole family was very close and they’re considering suing Bravo.” “I’m sure somebody will sue them,” Jackson added about the Armstrong family plans to litigate against the network.
I believe blaming Bravo might be a bit of a reach as the network did not force Russell to appear on the show. He could have easily walked away after the 1st season did not go so well for him. While the Housewives are typically under contract with Bravo, the husbands are not. Plus blaming reality tv or any network just seems unfair considering he had many other problems in his personal life, including financial issues and an impending divorce. So we have to ask –
