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.
