Bravo to edit 'Housewives' after Armstrong death


Network president Frances Berwick said it's not decided yet whether the original premiere date will be changed but he did confirm that the network is in the process of re-editing the show. However, Berwick did not specify exactly how the show would change.

The second season of the reality show that chronicles the lavish lifestyles of six Beverly Hills women is set to premiere Sept. 5.

Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of TV housewife Taylor Armstrong, was found dead Monday of hanging. No suicide note was found.

The couple's relationship troubles served as the main storyline of the show's first season.

The un-edited original season premiere episode filmed months ago shows Taylor Armstrong crying, telling the other housewives that she and her husband were getting counseling. She was also shown shopping for lingerie to help spice up the marriage. A tape of the episode was provided to press last week.

Taylor Armstrong filed for divorce on July 15. Russell Armstrong had yet to respond to her petition.

Russell Armstrong was an investment banker and founder of Crescent Financial Partners.
