Armstrong’s family has been vocal about their belief that the reality show, and Bravo, the network that airs it, are to blame for Russell’s suicide, and his step brother, Wade Jackson said that they are even considering a lawsuit.
“Bravo is at fault and somebody needs to pay,” Jackson said in an exclusive interview. “Russell’s whole family was very close and they’re considering suing Bravo.
the entire season in light of the tragedy.
“Russell’s dad doesn’t want to talk about what happened to him with a lot of people, but everyone in the family thinks that Bravo is to blame.”
Meanwhile, Bravo has yet to announce how they plan to proceed with airing footage of Russell – although they have decided to delay the premiere of the new season by “at least one week.”
