Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, Russell Armstrong's memorial service is on Wednesday, and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is “dreading” seeing his family, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.

Russell was found hanging in his friend's Mulholland Drive, Los Angeles, home last Monday, and his death has been ruled a suicide.

Taylor has been holed-up in her Bel Air Crest rental house with her daughter, Kennedy since the tragedy.

"Taylor is absolutely dreading seeing Russell's parents, and the rest of his family,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “She feels that they all hate her, and that they blame her for Russell's suicide. Taylor just wants to get through the memorial on Wednesday. She hopes that Russell's family doesn't try and cause a scene. This is a memorial service for the father of her daughter -- Kennedy will be at the service as well.”

But, it’s not just Taylor that is being blamed by Russell’s family - Bravo, the network that airs the Real Housewives franchise is also coming under fire.

Russell Armstrong's mother, John Anne Hotchkiss told CNN HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell last week that Bravo "better not air one frame of my son, or else."

Meanwhile, at the memorial on Wednesday: "There will be no remains present. And the family may witness the placement of his urn on Thursday or Friday", a source tells RadarOnline.com.

The memorial will be held at 3pm PT Wednesday at the Church of the Hills at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills -- the same church where actress Brittany Murphy was memorialized after her sudden death in 2009.

Family, friends, and costars from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are expected to attend the memorial, which will be closed to the public and not filmed for the reality show.
