For the first time since the news concerning Russell Armstrong’s passing was announced Monday, Bravo has finally confirmed what so many people have been speculating about for some time — “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 2 will be re-edited in order to not feature much (if any) of the man or cast member Taylor Armstrong’s much-publicized marital woes.
The reason behind this expected decision is simply — although Bravo is showing a clear interest in making sure the show airs for all the fans, they want to make it as respectful as possible for Taylor and also Russell’s family.
We previously reported that this season was going to be pushed back from the September 5 premiere date — but considering the nature of these edits (which could be substantial depending on how much footage they have), the show may not end up premiering for several additional weeks.
“Beverly Hills” was a smash hit for Bravo in 2010, though at that time the story dominating the headlines had to do largely with Camille Grammer’s relationship with Kelsey.
Do you think this is the right decision for Bravo to make?
