The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation has been Exhibit A of museums-on-the-go during the expansionist and sometimes boundary-pushing and populist tenure of director Thomas Krens. Krens made "Guggenheim" an international brand name for modern and contemporary art and architecture while sometimes riling purists by bringing shows such as "The Art of the Motorcycle" and an exhibition of Armani fashions to the flagship Guggenheim Museum in New York.

On Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchise, a main character is affluence. It takes many forms: private planes, posh mansions, thousand-dollar shopping sprees. And it seemed Russell Armstrong and his wife, Taylor, who appeared on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," had been living up to the lifestyle. Last season, Taylor threw a $60,000 party for their then-4-year-old daughter, frequently conferred with a private stylist and devoted much of her free time to philanthropy. On Monday night, Russell Armstrong, 47, was found dead in an apparent suicide, and facts began to emerge Tuesday that raise questions about how the program presented the couple and whether the resulting glare of publicity played any role in his death.
