    You are not alone.

  • Dgently

    Yeah. Cause if my husband ever offs himself, what I need is people tweeting at me.

    • pie thrower

      Thank you for saying that Dgently. Twitter is what we rely on to express ourselves now. Poorly punctuated and poorly spelled phrases do nothing to mend a person’s grief, and from a journalistic perspective, this article carries no news. News is not a bunch people saying different variations of Rest In Peace.

      When you care enough to express your sentiments in 120 characters or less. Because after all, it’s important that YOUR followers know that you care.

      “My dear friend! My heart goes out 2 u! I’am here 4 u”

      My God, this is what passes for sincerity? Tweeting @ someone? This is a “dear friend”? Self-aggrandizing, attention Hos, all of them.

      • Lisa

        Exactly, if she is a dear friend, pick up the phone or write her a letter. Tweeting so you can make a public display of your supposed sorrow and support is not being a friend.

    Tweeting about this is so self serving! Look at me…I care because I tweeted. Fake bishes.

  • jdr

    This financial situation makes sense on how he acting on the show. I thought he was cheating but if my financial situation was as bad as his I would be more distance than him on the show. I know that suicide is not ultimately a thought out decision but I had a feeling that Russell felt that his purpose to his family was to provide financial for them and he felt he blew it. But I could tell his daughter never cared for that and liked him for more than that. I don’t hate Taylor. She just wasn’t his type of girl and he wasn’t her type of man.

  • JS

    How nice of them…to tweet their sympathies…freaking ridiculous. Pick up the phone or send a personal email. Telling your twitter followers that you feel bad is not for Taylor, it’s for your own ego.

  • Jackie

    a guy died! at least spell out words instead of using 2 or u if you actually care

  • Ben

    Nothing from Kyle or Kim Richards?

    • sheppard

      Kyle? You’re kidding, right? For all her professed ‘nice girlie’, you got major ‘it’s all about me’ ego going on here.

    • Tracey

      I am sure that Kyle made real contact with Taylor- through the phone or in person. That’s what real friends do and she seems to be a real friend to her.

  • shabootie

    Meh. Can’t feel sorry for a wife beater.

    I can feel bad for the little girl.

  • Dave

    Don’t these women know Taylor personally? Why are they tweeting her?

  • Dave

    I hate it when people end these kinds of statements with exclamation points. “My prayers are with you! My heart goes out to you! I’m so sorry!” Why are you excitedly proclaiming your condolences at me? It is a somber statement and should not be exclaimed.

    • mark

      It’s because they’re not only fame-hos, they’re ignorant fame-hos.

    • lisa g takes shts at work!

      Agree with Dave. Misuse of exclamation mark!

  • Dierdre

    I doubt this tragedy would have happened if it were not for the fame mongering motives of these women and the subsequent public shaming that comes with a tv franchise like this.

  • Dinana

    Ironic that she’s been courting the media and now asks for privacy…when will these people learn?

  • karen

    Nothing from Jill, LuAnn or Kelly just goes to show you everyone is out for themselves.

    • NOYB

      Are you serious? Because you didn’t see TWEETS from Jill, LuAnn or Kelly that means they’re only out for themselves? So I guess the fake, public condolences are more to your liking? Unreal.

    • Fed Up W/ Twitter “grief”

      Tweeting about death is disgusting. i am glad they have remained silent. they likely did the right thing and sent flowers or actually placed a phone call. When someone tweets about death, it is not about the actual death, it is to promote themselves to their followers. It is incredibly impersonal and disgusting. Bravo to the countess, jill, kelly and any other housewife who made their fingers bypass the public shame that is twitter.

    • mark

      This attitude is EXACTLY what’s wrong: Because someone didn’t make a grand public display (in 120 characters) there is something wrong with them. Not every moment of ones life needs to be lived publically.

  • natacha

    I do agree the Taylor just lost her hunband and her daughter just lost her father. tweeting does not express sympathy. it shows lack of respect from these women. seriously why are they tweeting. they should be going over her house to console taylor and kennedy, and send flowers to their houses.


  • B4Real

    Maybe the other “housewives” decided NOT to tweet condolences. Tweeting your sympathy when someone has just committed suicide has got to be at the top of all things tacky.
