Bravo Will Air Suicide Prevention PSA During Russell Armstrong Special

Posted on Wed Aug 31, 2011 10:55 AM PDT


Bravo has released an official statement regarding the handling of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Russell Armstrong's suicide.

It had been reported that a special would air about Russell's suicide -- a special for which every housewife except his estranged wife, Taylor Armstrong, was interviewed.

Now the network has officially announced the special, and also revealed that public service announcements about suicide prevention will air during the broadcast.

The statement also confirmed what had been reported -- that re-editing is being done of the latest season's episodes, but that the intended Sept. 5 premiere date would not be changed. Said Bravo Media President Frances Berwick:

    "Given that these episodes were filmed months ago, the producers of the show taped a brief interview this week with several cast members to introduce the premiere. Re-editing of the episodes is still underway. Bravo will proceed with the Monday, September 5 premiere date ... Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time."

This is the second season for the show. Taylor Armstrong has yet to make any type of public comment or statement on her estranged husband's suicide.

Original promos for the show featured a distraught Armstrong breaking down when discussing her marriage with fellow castmates. After Armstrong's body was found August 15, the network pulled the promos.
