The Los Angeles Times reports that Bravo has finally come up with something of a solution to the unique dilemma of broadcasting a light-hearted reality show around real people grieving a real suicide. “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” will include a special addressing the tragedy.
Housewife Taylor Armstrong‘s estranged husband (and the father of her child) Russell Armstrong committed suicide by hanging earlier this month. To respond to the tragedy, Bravo has arranged a sit-down special with Armstrong’s fellow housewives to discuss the situation.
The Times reports that Lisa Vanderpump, Camille Grammer, Kyle and Kim Richards, and Adrienne Maloof filmed the special on Monday, but Armstrong was not present. It’s not known whether the special will air before or after the season premiere of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” The premiere, slated for Sept. 5, has been edited since the suicide.
