And if Russell really was bisexual and feared that news getting out, then I feel even worse. Yeah, he put his life on there on TV but maybe he just didn't realize how exposed he could be or how far people could dig into his personal life. I dunno. Sounds stupid but I feel bad for him. He obviously just could not deal anymore.

He couldn't have NOT known his personal business would get out there by being a part of a reality show! Since his suicide, there have been countless interview on "news magaine" shows with reality show cast members, attorneys, etc. They all say the same thing: the contract you sign TELLS you you're putting yourself "out there" and you're wide open for anyone/everyone to make public whatever personal information they may have about you. One interviewee also said her contract actually stated that by being a contestant/participant in the reality show, you know they are filming you at all times and you give them license to cut/edit however they choose and to embarass/humiliate you or make you look bad if they so choose.

You know, Russell must have had many, many demons. If he had the support system he needed, he could have turned this bi-sexual thing into a huge money-maker. I guess he just couldn't handle all the financial and other stress and then, topping it off, his abusive behavior being exposed and now his bi-sexuality being revealed.

already so sick of Taylor and her deceased husband. I just hope Bravo cuts her from the cast so the show can carry on without her and her baggage. Taylor should be focused on her child right now anyway and be trying to face the reality of being broke,a child to raise alone and IMHO it's gonna need to be away from the glamour and glitz of Beverly Hills. She apparently never belonged there.

I doubt Bravo will cut her - if anything she just became more interesting, plot-wise. And while Bravo doesn't pay as well as some of the other networks, she clearly needs the money, so I don't see her quitting any time soon.

That said, if most of the viewing public feels like you, and doesn't want to see her anymore, then I can see her being dropped in the future. But all the press this is generating? Sure makes it look like her job is secure, at least for the moment.

It will be interesting to see what Bravo does. The BH franchise is a cash cow that just got even better but they have to not come across as greedy. Good luck with that.

ABC News just reported that Russell Armstrong's mother is threatening to sue Bravo if they air any footage at all of her son in the new season. He signed a contract, so that would trump his mother's wishes in court, but... will Bravo want to get involved in that?

His mother is also talking to the press way more than she probably should. She's saying that the show and the press ruined her son's life, but then she's talking to the press, and opening herself up to the same kind of scrutiny and gossip? I hope she doesn't regret it later...
