These reality ho’s go on television and in interviews and tell the public the most personal things. Plus they are encouraged to exaggerate, embellish, be cruel etc — all for good television that gives high ratings. It is a miracle nothing like this has happened before.

um who?? numerous other people commit suicides every day, why is this one special to point out? Maybe if it was Robert DeNiro it would be worth publishing since the world knows who he is. Jared you’re losing your nuts and bolts lol

Suicide means that she does not get life insurance .So what makes hear housewife! All the Beverley hills housewives are divorced start a new
Show divorced wives of Beverley Hills!

Permanent solution for temporary problem who knows why he did it but im pretty sure it wasnt worth it the real victims are his three kids.

Permanent solution for a temporary problem who knows what he was thinking when he did this, but im pretty sure whatever it is wasnt worth it the real victims are those 3 kids

poor man, as a couple they seemed so detached, I can see why the wive would never see it coming. If you don’t try and take a closer look at the poeple you supposeningly love, you will never see beyond yourself.

I feel very sorry for his kids. They are the true victims in this. They get left with inner turmoil and self doubt because of what he choose to do . I hope her daughter gets counselling soon, even at this young age, because I just don’t see Taylor being a true emotional support for her child .

It would never have happened had his famewhore turned down Housewives..she came out recently that he abused her physically…that couple with his bankruptcy and debt, we can see why he was severely depressed. It’s not an excuse to end it all..but some people just can not imagine life any better than it is at that moment..

@Fake:
Let’s hope he didn’t have any life insurance for this witch to inherit. Another man driven to death by a psycho wife who feels entitled to all the material luxuries in life. Can we hold these witches responsible for the death? She’s pathetic and he wasn’t too intelligent to marry a woman like that.

@second recession:
Don’t blame poor economy, blame yourself for stupidity if you marry a golddigging witch.

@irrelevant:

RIGHT ON ! Amen! Yes, I hope there is no Life Insurance and I surely hope Bravo rethinks their horrific promotion of such a trashy Reality Show…

This is so so sad. It’s a tragedy for the kid.

Nothing good has come from this type of reality TV. Not everybody is cut out to handle their dirty laundry in public. What 15min of fame-ish and a quick buck in comparison to your life falling apart, humiliation and loosing yourself……
