The body of Russell Armstrong, cast member of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and estranged husband of cast member Taylor Armstrong, was found earlier this week in what local police are classifying as a suicide.

Bravo Media issued a statement regarding the news, saying, “All of us at Bravo are deeply saddened by this tragic news. Our sympathy and thoughts are with the Armstrong family at this difficult time.”

The second season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is slated to premiere on September 5.

The Armstrongs’ marital discord had been documented in the first season. It’s not yet known how much of a role the subject plays in the upcoming season. Taylor Armstrong had filed for divorce from her husband last month after six years of marriage.
