Premiere Date Stays Put!
After a tango of will they or won't they keep the Sept. 5 premiere date of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after Russell Armstrong's suicide, Bravo has revealed its decision. Read on to see what they decided.
Bravo is not backing down!
Frances Berwick, president of Bravo Media, said, "Bravo will proceed with the Monday, Sept. 5 premiere date of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
Berwick added, "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."
The intros by the girls is obviously the scuttlebutt everyone was referring to when it was reported that a special on Russell Armstrong's suicide was being filmed with cast members.
Frances Berwick also wanted to make sure everyone knew the Bravo family was giving the Armstrong family the time they need to heal. "Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time," Berwick offered.
So, it looks like Lisa Vanderpump, Camillle Grammer, Kyle and Kim Richards, Adrienne Maloof and Taylor Armstrong will be back on schedule for the Sept. 5 premiere.
What do you think of Bravo's decision to go forward with the air date?
