The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills show will continue with its original air date, September 5th despite a little confusion over how the show should go on after the suicide of Russell Armstrong.
“Bravo will proceed with the Monday, September 5 premiere date of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Bravo Media President Frances Berwick said in a statement.
“Given that these episodes were filmed months ago, the producers of the show taped a brief interview this week with several cast members to introduce the premiere,” the statement continues. “Re-editing of the episodes is still underway.”
Berwick also said in the statement that Bravo will air public service announcements during the premiere’s broadcast to raise awareness of suicide prevention. Information and resources, including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, will also be added to the network’s Web site, Bravotv.com.
“Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time,” Berwick said.
