The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere Sept. 5 as originally scheduled despite the recent suicide of co-star Russell Armstrong. “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,” Bravo president Frances Berwick said in a statement. “Re-editing of the episodes is still underway.” She said that Bravo has partnered with the Entertainment Industries Council to raise awareness about suicide prevention and will air PSAs during the show. “Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time,” Berwick said.
