<p><span></span>Songwriter <strong>Linda Thompson</strong>, close friend of <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=the%20real%20housewives%20of%20beverly%20hills&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><em>The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'</em></a> <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=taylor%20armstrong&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2"><strong>Taylor Armstrong</strong></a>, spoke exclusively to <em>Life & Style</em> about the sudden death of Taylor's husband, <a href="http://dynamic.bauerpublishing.com/mt-search.fcgi?blog_id=2&tag=russell%20armstrong&limit=20&IncludeBlogs=2">Russell</a>.</p>
"I am deeply saddened by this tragic news and concerned for the well-being of Taylor and their daughter, Kennedy," Linda exclusively tells Life & Style. "I'm also thinking of the two sons [Aiden, 13, and Griffin, 11, from previous relationships] Russell leaves behind."
Linda, in whom Taylor confided during an emotional episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was on an 11-hour flight from Japan when the news broke. "Life is such a precious gift," Linda explains. "And so many people around the globe struggle to stay alive, which makes the choice to end one's life all the more perplexing and tragic."
Especially concerned for Taylor and Russell's 5-year-old daughter, Linda says that she'll stay by the family's side. "We will all be there for her and Kennedy," adds Linda.
