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?
