Bravo on "Beverly Hills": The Show Will Go On
There was no fancy press release, just a simple email that went out today to share the news that Bravo will premiere “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” Monday as scheduled…
It was thought that Bravo would postpone the premiere after the suicide of series regular Taylor Armstrong’s estranged husband, Russell. The couple’s troubles was scheduled to be a major storyline of the show this season.
Here is the e-mail in its entirety:
“Bravo will proceed with the Monday, September 5 premiere date of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,’” confirmed Frances Berwick, President, Bravo Media. "Given that these episodes were filmed months ago, the producers of the show taped a brief interview this week with several of the cast members to introduce the premiere. Re-editing of the episodes is still underway."
Berwick added, "Bravo has partnered with the Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) to raise awareness about suicide prevention. The network will air various PSA’s during the ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’ We will also provide additional information and resources on Bravotv.com, including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline."
“Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time,” said Berwick.
“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” premieres Monday, September 5th at 9 p.m. on Bravo…
