‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’: Taylor Armstrong asks for privacy

It’s been a tough time.

Following the stunning news of her husband Russell’s shocking passing late Monday night, it only seems appropriate for Taylor Armstrong to ask for a little break when it comes tot he near-constant media attention.

When it comes to Taylor herself, it’s understandable that the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star┬áhas not made any sort of public statement — however, her attorney Robert Thorne has reached out with a simple plea for privacy:

“Taylor Armstrong is devastated by the tragic events that have unfolded. She requests privacy at this time so that she may comfort her young daughter.”

There are also reports out there that Armstrong’s daughter Kennedy has not been informed about what happened to her father yet, and this is due to Taylor wanting to have herself together to the best of her ability before breaking the news.

This newest development is just one further part of what has been an incredibly tragic year for Armstrong thus far. Before this news broke, she was already going through a divorce and had to deal with a number of negative tabloid reports.

As we’ve said all day, our thoughts go out to Taylor in this troubling time.
