The second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills kicked off Monday night on a somber note in wake of Russell Armstrong’s suicide, but three of the ladies put on a brave face and marked the premiere by stepping out in New York , and RadarOnline.com has the photos.
Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump took their husbands, and Giggy, to The Stanton Social in NYC to usher in season two of their all-too-real reality TV show. The group all enjoyed the time they spent at dinner laughing with each other, according to an eyewitness.
With Taylor Armstrong’s husband’s death the focal point of the show, the women gave emotional tributes to Russell at the beginning of the show.
During the episode, Lisa and Ken Vanderpump got into a simmering fight with Taylor when they dismissed her efforts to go to marriage counseling with Russell because they were having trouble in their relationship.
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Taylor Armstrong screened the episode a few days before the premiere but watched it at home Monday night as well. “She was very moved by the heartfelt comments that each of the Housewives made regarding Russell’s suicide. There were a lot of tears shed as she watched the episode,” a source close to Taylor told RadarOnline.com.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Mondays on Bravo.
