Bravo Delaying Housewives Premiere Following Russell Armstrong Suicide

By Radar Staff

Bravo has decided to push the premiere of the new season of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills by “at least one week” following the suicide of Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of cast member Taylor Armstrong.

A source told the Hollywood Reporter that people close to the production are even encouraging Bravo to consider scrapping the entire season in light of the tragedy.

However, though some heavy re-editing is likely, the source says that Bravo does not currently plan to cancel the season entirely.
