Bravo Is Reportedly Waiting 24 Hours To Decide Fate Of 'Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!'

Tue, August 16, 2011 9:05pm EDT by 18 Comments

Following Russell Armstrong’s alleged suicide, the network behind ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ is reportedly taking a day to figure out what to do with the impending season two premiere!

Season two of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is set to premiere on Bravo Sept. 5, but now network execs are reportedly debating on how to handle the series, after one of the show’s stars Taylor Armstrong‘s estranged husband, Russell, allegedly hung himself to death Aug. 15.“According to sources, the network is waiting at least 24 hours to make a decision about whether they’ll postpone the show,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Those that watched the media screener of the first episode say the premiere originally featured Taylor and Russell’s problematic marriage and even focused on Taylor breaking down as she debated couples’ therapy. Whether or not Bravo will alter the episode or change it altogether remains to be seen.

According to THR, “Shooting has yet to wrap, but has been suspended for at least the remainder of the week. Producers are still editing and sources said before the news of Armstrong’s death, that the network had ordered an additional four episodes bringing the second season total to 18.”

Stay tuned for what happens to RHOBH. Our thoughts and well-wishes are out with Taylor and her daughter, Kennedy, during this difficult time.

How do YOU think Bravo should address Russell’s death this season? Sound off below.

This is a tragedy and the show should be canceled without a doubt. Airing your families laundry for the sake of money is a disgrace. I personally feel it would be too upsetting to watch the show this season, even if it is edited.

My condolences goes to Taylor and the family. It’s wrong for the ex-wife to blame Taylor…just RUDE and inconsiderate! Anyway, I think Bravo should leave it up to Taylor, to include her or not. The show should still go on, in my opinion. Love it!

Keep the show but edit out Taylor’s family drama. I love the girls on this show and I’m really excited to see this season but Bravo needs to respect Taylor and her family by focusing the show more on the drama between the ladies. My heart goes out to Taylor and all of Russell’s children! God Bless them all.

Leave it alone — cancel it. This should not even be an option for ratings. Leave these children in what peace they can find. Do not drag the death of their father into this at all. Cancel this show. One less ‘housewives reality show’ is not going to hurt anything.

As they say, the show must go on ….
It’s a great reality tv program with high ratings. I am sure some more editing will be needed in reference to Taylor and Russell’s drama with divorce. People kill themselves in real life, this is real life people. The show doesnt kill relationships, fame and people do.

Bravo will not cancel the HWBH, the ratings will skyrocket, unfortunately, people love to watch a “trainwreck”. The filming has already begun for this season. Out of respect for the Armstrong family, this season should be scrapped, Taylor should bow out and take care of business and begin the series w/the remaining woman, not even mentioning the missing Taylor. The other gals have plenty going on in their lives to fill a season. But, that’s just my opinion.

Cancel the show. Who wants to watch a bunch of botoxed bimbos that are fake and only want attention. Sick of seeing them everywhere.

I just paid $24,31 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic GF 1 Camera that we got for $34,26 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 42 inch LED TV to my boss for $678 which only cost me $68,18 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentSpace.com

To be honest I do not believe that a show can damage a marriage. If you agree to do something then you should be prepared for the best and worst. If you have dirty laundry then why would you do a reality show? Does not make sense. He obviously had other issues going on.

Outing Kim for alcoholism. Tearing down Russel. This series has sucked from the beginning and it is just rock bottom now for sure. Cancel it.

I’m glad to hear Bravo is reconsidering airing the show. As much as I enjoy RHBH, I would have a difficult time watching when I know Russell is dead. Perhaps it’s time to forget this “housewife” thing. It seems it has serious affects on marriages.
