The Bravo network says it is going ahead with next Monday's season premiere of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" despite the suicide of a cast member.
Bravo Media President Frances Berwick said Wednesday that producers taped brief interviews with other cast members to introduce the premiere. The network will also air several suicide prevention public service announcements during the show.
Russell Armstrong, whose wife, Taylor, is one of the "Real Housewives," hanged himself on Aug. 15. He left no note. The couple's marital strife was a story line in the reality show's first season, and was expected to be a feature of the upcoming second season.
Berwick did not say what type of editing would be done on the series.
