Almost 48 hours after the tragic passing of Taylor Armstrong’s husband Russell, Bravo executive / host Andy Cohen has made it clear that the network is still very much working to process everything that has happened over the past day and a half, and try to come up with the best way to handle “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (which features Taylor as a primary cast member) in a way that is both appealing to the fans and respectful to the family.
Writing in a very short entry on his official blog, Cohen had this to say about the current debate when it comes to the future of the show:
“We’re all still trying to process yesterday’s very sad news, and looking at how to proceed with the series, which has finished primary production and was set to premiere on Labor Day. We’ll let you know what we decide when we do. In the meantime, we’re sending our thoughts and prayers to Taylor and the rest of Russell’s family. “
There have been various stories popping up here and there about Taylor planning a memorial for her estranged husband — and members of Russell’s family actually blaming Bravo for what happened (even though Russell could have decided not to appear on camera) — but we will wait to see what develops on these before moving forward.
Do you think that Bravo is doing the right thing here by taking their time to make a decision?
