Bravo plans to re-edit “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” after the suicide this week of the husband of one of the housewives.
“We have not made a decision to change our original premiere date, but we are in the process of re-editing the show,” said network president Frances Berwick.
The second season of the reality show that follows the lavish lifestyles of six women in Beverly Hills is scheduled to premiere Sept. 5.
Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of TV housewife Taylor Armstrong, was found dead Monday of hanging. No suicide note was found.
According to producers, the couple’s marital troubles were a central story line of the first season of the show, and that was set to continue for Season 2. A copy of the season-premiere episode filmed months ago and provided to press last week showed Taylor Armstrong crying and sharing with the other housewives that she and her husband were going to counseling. She was also shown shopping for lingerie to help spice up the marriage.
Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce July 15. Russell Armstrong had yet to respond to her petition.
