Bravo to Air a Russell Armstrong Suicide Special

Russell Armstrong fromThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hills committed suicide in mid-August. The timing couldn’t have been better for Bravo because the second season premiere on Sept. 5 was right around the corner. Yea, they had to re-edit the premiere because he died but the upside is they’ll now get to air a special addressing his suicide. Ratings. You’re doing it right.

The network has shot a special that included several cast members of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills — Lisa Vanderpump, Camille Grammer, Kyle and Kim Richards, and Adrienne Maloof. Taylor Armstrong apparently was not included in the filming. — EW

I’m surprised his wife, Taylor Armstrong, didn’t agree to appear. I wonder if it was by choice or the choice of Bravo. I guess it looks bad if they forced a widow to shill for ratings. Strange since I always thought the execs would have these people stand on the Tijuana border selling chicles if it meant a bump in viewers.
