A few weeks ago I asked a question that went something like this, if you knew a person had changed their name five times would you question what they told you? Now what if that person told an outlandish fairytale such as this- a crazy man jumps out of the bushes, throws this person into a swimming pool and starts to drown them. Then he begins beating another man's ass, while also beating that man's dog's ass all while the man's wife was going all Babe Ruth with a piece of firewood on the crazy man's head all while he is still drowning the storyteller. Hard to follow? That's because it didn't happen. Now we find out the woman hitting Russell Armstrong on the back of the head (wink, wink) is none other than Jennifer Wahlgren Diamond. The same woman who changed her name and moved with Taylor to the same Beverly Hills address from Florida. What we didn't know about Ms. Diamond is the reason for her name change was a 1995 drug trafficking arrest. So now I ask you, if some Joe Shmo off the street who you knew had five name changes told you some ridiculous story and their key witness just happened to have a name change and a drug trafficking arrest what would you think?
We have two women with seven different names between them and not one single police report or hospital report. Hmm???? For me the ridiculous rhetoric that comes out of Ms. Hughes mouth and a portion of the population actually believing her is much like watching the OJ verdict. It gives me a sick feeling. Just when we thought TEAM Shana could not have stooped any lower Jennifer decides to take a shot at Russ' still very grieving parents in an interview that was so low the author removed it from the interview. I guess it's not enough that his children, parents, friends and family have to hear Ms. Sipe's completely fabricated story that must have been written in Mr. Roger's land of make believe. Russ’ parents are now having to endure personal attacks from the 7 name gang. His parents who have been divorced for many years both live a nice, peaceful life in east Texas. Good people that have had no name changes or drug trafficking arrests by the way. They are now being subjected to such despicable and disgusting behavior and outright lies because the "mainstream media" never questions Shana/Taylor about her lies, changes in stories, inaccuracies in her time line of events, and lack of evidence.
I wonder if Shana has any loyalty to anyone. I mean besides fame and money. I wonder what the people that went to high school with Shana Lynette Hughes Taylor Sipe Ford Armstrong think of her. I have not heard any of them come to her defense when she is called out as the liar she is. All she has been able to muster is an old drug trafficking friend? Loyalty is number one in a person's traits for me when I choose a friend. That's because growing up I had a very close loyal friend who not only learned with me how to be a good friend but also taught me loyalty by his actions. I have talked about his portrayal by Bravo and how much it bothered me after the first episode. It bothers me to no end that Bravo, then Shana have destroyed all that was good about Russ. The friend I spent thousands of hours with. He was who I went to with my problems and my dreams such as- getting a first car, going to college, girl troubles, finding a wife, having a family, laughing, fame, fortune , parents and more things than I can name. Just like most good friends Russ and I had disagreements but they didn't last long. We both knew we had a true friend in each other. In 36 years I never once questioned his loyalty. Russ was loyal to all his good friends and I am not the only one sickened by the 7 name gang.
Here’s another story from the past I wanted to share with you. One time when Russ and I were 15, I was spending the night at his house and we decided to go to the midnight movie to see "Up in Smoke". His parents were out of town but he said his grandmother would take us since she was staying with Russ and his sister Laurie. I asked him how we were going to get home. I told him we couldn't call his grandmother to pick us up at 2am. He told me he had hooked up a ride home. I was 15 so I didn't question just who in the Hell would be "giving" us a ride at 2am. I remember laughing a lot during the movie and when it was out I asked who was picking us up. He told me to hold on and went over to the pay phone. He came back with that big grin on his face and said his grandmother was on her way. Russ' grandmother was not that old at the time. In fact she is still alive today but at 15 everyone over 20 seems really old. My grandmothers were also quite a bit older than his so the thought of being picked up at 2am by his grandmother completely mortified me. But it did make for a good laugh later in life and not just for us but for his grandmother and mother as well. I talked to Russ' mom quite a while two nights ago. We told story after story and she finally said "Russ had other friends with stories but all the funny ones were with you because ya'll were both mischievous". Just one more trait the world will never know about Russell Armstrong.
