The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Discuss Russell Armstrong's Suicide, Therapy Sessions

| Filed under: Real HousewivesReality TV

Last night, audiences watched The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills come back to television.

The series, which documented two years of Russell Armstrong's life before his tragic suicide, has fought hard to address his situation in the most respectful way.

Producers also wanted to make sure audiences know they weren't going to beat around the bush, either. Instead of pretending as if nothing happened, the season opened with the cast (minus widow Taylor) discussing his death and the importance of being there for Taylor (watch above).

As for Taylor, she may not have been present during the cast discussion, but as the episode rewound into the past, it showed her discussing the intense psycho-therapy sessions she and Russell participated in.

She exclaimed being sick of herself because she was so "knee-deep" in counseling, as Lisa Vanderpump's husband spoke up with, "If I had to go to see a therapist to make my marriage better, I would feel weak."

….

We personally believe counseling can help marriages. It's all about communication and discovering the root of your problems through question and answer. There's nothing weak about pulling yourself up for air! Nothing weak at all.

So, how do U feel Bravo handled the situation? Have they addressed it appropriately so far?

    This is disgraceful. Everyone associated with this show should be ashamed.

    Re: Shelah – Agreed. Once the cameras are rolling it is all posturing and pretence. Anyone who thinks for a second that any of this crap is real is delusional. But a man is dead - that is real. And the producers and all those skanky women are just capitalizing off of his demise.

    Blah Blah Blah. All of the sudden, he's a saint and the world is worse off without him. Reality check…this dude fucked dudes while married to a chick, and exposed her to god know's what, he beat her ass on the regular. He was a piece of shit, and dare I say, many people are better off today, with him gone, than they were a month ago.

    it is in very bad taste, not to mention appalling, that Bravo and these women are going forward with airing this. they should be ashamed. i watched every episode last season. this has turned my stomach and i just cant ever look at anything to do with any of these people ever again.

    Not watching this show, this series, Real Housewives franchise,Bravo or NBC anymore. It is so hard to take these woman seriously with their lips looking like that first of all. Second, well, I cant. Just cant. Can not condone or support this anymore.

    A bunch of vapid, surgically altered sociopaths feigning sympathy. Disgusting what constitutes entertainment today.

    Re: hoochpit – He's a saint, really…? who is saying that?

    "To address the situation in the most respectful way" would have been to acknowledge his passing, maybe make a short tribute to his life, and MOVE ON. Anything more is just disgusting and opportunistic. Shame on Bravo!

    Re: tallguy10 – there was no reason to state anything…none of these women liked Russell…noticed Kim tends to keep her mouth shut…she didn't like Russell or Taylor……..

    I hope Russell's family sues Bravo…..

    I LOVE THE WAY KYLE FAKE CRIES!! LOLZ!! WHAT IS THAT FUCKIN MAN GONNA DO WHEN SHE FINDS OUT MAURICE FUCKS AROUND ON HER ALL THE TIME!! LMFAO!! AND WHY DOES SHE LOOK SO MUCH LIKE A MAN??

    It's sad that it ended that way. I used to be a fan of Lisa and her family, but watching TRHOBH this episode…..triggered my gag reflex. I was shocked that Ken, Lisa's husband let Gigi the dog drink the water from the expensive glass and drink the water after that. Yuck!!!! Adrianne as shocked, and Kim couldn't stomach to see how Ken drink the water from the same glass with Gigi. It was so disgusting, I almost thrrow up!!!!!

    Re: hoochpit – I agree with your point, death does not change who you were when you lived.

    any kind of reality show is going to receive harsh feedback because it's a reality show. I watched the season premiere and to be frank, there are ALOT of other storylines going on besides Taylor's. If she was cut out completely and just only shown during party, dining, or shopping scenes then that would have been cool since we all know her storyline unfortunately. Brandi coming on the show, Lisa's 2nd s thoughts with the circle, Kyle & kim I love them bonding and doing their thing, Adrienne & her husband having words in public then working from that, that's going to be seen alot more than Taylor's parts. I will continue to watch the show.
