"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong burst into tears and called out for her psychiatrist when she found her husband's body after he hanged himself, according the tape of the 911 call to police released yesterday.

Russell Armstrong, 47, was found hanging inside a friend's Los Angeles home Aug. 15. An unidentified friend who discovered him made the 911 call, which was posted on TMZ.com.

"My friend just hanged himself, do you understand?" the male caller said. "Come over here right now, stop asking questions and come over here right now."

Taylor, 40, is heard sobbing in the background, and said, "I need my psychiatrist."

When the 911 responder asked if Armstrong could be helped, the caller replied: "There's nothing we can do. Just please come as soon as possible."

The caller is also heard ordering someone to get Armstrong's 5-year-old daughter out of the room, but said she didn't know what was going on.
