In one of Russell Armstrong’s final interviews before he committed suicide earlier this month, the estranged husband of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong lashed out at Bravo, reports Maer Roshan at TheFix.com.

"As it happens, I’d met with the 47-year-old venture capitalist two months ago, and continued a dialogue with him until shortly before he hanged himself," Roshan writes. Armstrong was interested in buying a piece of TheFix.com, he notes, which was how the two met.

Armstrong criticized the show’s producers for portraying him as a villain, Roshan writes. "Everything you see on that show is bullshit," Armstrong said. "Those Bravo bastards take every little argument out of context and just magnify it. They think that tension drives ratings, and of course they’re right."

Roshan notes that TheFix.com’s interest in joining in a partnership ended when he learned of allegations that Armstrong had illegally pocketed a $1.5 million investment, the story notes.
