Russell Armstrong, estranged husband of Taylor Armstrong, star of Bravo’s Beverly Hills Real Housewives was found dead Monday night. TMZ broke the story early Tuesday morning, stating sources revealed Armstrong was found hanging in his bedroom at his home at Mullholland drive.

E! News reports that no official cause of death has been established, however the death is being investigated as a suicide at this time. Examination of the body is expected to begin Wednesday.

Many are speculating that financial troubles (Russell was recently and sued and had previously filed for bankruptcy), the break up of his marriage, the domestic violence allegations brought by his estranged wife, and the pressure of reality television may have lead to the tragedy.  In July, Rusell made the following statement to People Magazine:

 “Did I push her? Yes, maybe things happened in the heat of the moment, but it was during a time in our lives that was not characteristic of who we were. This show has literally pushed us to the limit.”
