Bravo has now made it official: the season two premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will air as scheduled, this Monday night at 10 p.m. EST.
Controversy has surrounded the series, of course, since Russell Armstrong took his own life this month. But the network said in a statement today that the situation will be addressed at the outset of the opening episode.
"Bravo will proceed with the Monday, Sept. 5 premiere date of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," said Francis Berwick, president of 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. Reediting of the episodes is still underway.
"Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time."
Is this the right decision? What do you think Bravo should do about season two?
