Kyle Richards says that co-star Taylor Armstrong was ‘pleased’ with how the premiere was handled after her husband’s suicide — but should it even be shown? Vote!

The stars of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills are supporting their show despite the recent suicide of their co-star Taylor Armstrong‘s estranged husband Russell Armstrong — but critics think the first episode was in bad taste. What’s your take, HollywoodLifers?

Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump sat down with Ann Curry on The Today Show to discuss the controversial premiere.

Ann asked the three women about watching the episode with Taylor and they all agreed that she was positive about the events.

“In light of the situation, she was pleased with the outcome,” Kyle explained.

“She was supportive of the series being shown,” Lisa added.

But critics aren’t exactly pleased.

Entertainment Weekly‘s Ken Tucker called the first episode “grotesque” and “awkward,” while the Los Angeles TimesMary MacNamara believes the whole season should have been canceled.

“The only meaningful statement Bravo could have made after the suicide last month of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spouse Russell Armstrong would have been to cancel season two, which depicts, among other things, the collapse of the Armstrong marriage,” Mary wrote.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers, should Bravo have canceled the entire season?
