TMZ has learned that the entire cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was ordered to keep no talking to the media about Russell Armstrong’s suicide at all. Sources connected with the show tell TMZ, Bravo made a phone call and sent an email for each cast member just hours after the news about Russell’s death broke to keep their mouths shut about something related to the fallen Russell Armstrong.

According to attorney Ronald Richards, Russell had been staying at a friend’s house due to major financial problems. “I feel bad because his credit cards weren’t working. . . . He had tremendous financial problems.”,” Richards told TMZ. “He was also extremely bummed out about the divorce with Taylor. As far as a will, even if he does have a will, they don’t have any assets, so I’m not sure what there would be left to leave. I am extremely saddened… I had no idea he was depressed.” TMZ said Russell made millions during the dot-com boom of the 1990s but filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2005. At the time he said he had less than $50,000 in assets (and debt in the millions).
