‘Real Housewives’ news: Taylor Armstrong update, additional tragedy

Here’s the latest.

This is turning out to be an extremely rough week for the “Real Housewives” franchise. Only a number of days after Taylor Armstrong’s husband Russell’s tragic passing, we now have other news when it comes to a star from the “Miami” addition of the Bravo series.

According to new reports, Frankie — the 13-year old son of cast member Alexia Echevarria — has been in critical condition for most of the week after being in a major car accident. However, Alexia is at least giving some indication via Twitter that he is going to end up being okay:

“Frankie’s pelvic surgery went well today thanks to God and all your prayers. He is stable and getting stronger day by day.”

As for Taylor herself, the newest shocking story to come out this week is one claiming that production of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was actually delayed earlier this year after a brutal incident involving her then-husband that led to her being hospitalized — and things only got worse for Camille Grammer and Kyle Richards (two of Taylor’s co-stars) once Russell found out that they knew about what happened.

Stay tuned — we will have more updates on all things “Housewives” as soon as they become available.
