Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Vanderpump of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sat down on The Today Show along with RHOBH exec producer Douglas Ross and opened up about Russell Armstrong's suicide and whether or not he will be featured in the show.
They confirmed that Bravo had made "some adjustments" in order to be "respectful and responsible" to his family and fans, however, it looks like some of the footage of him will show up later in the season. Ross says:
"In the first few episodes that we've finished editing, Russell is not included in these episodes. But it is important to know that Taylor's story is told throughout the season."
As for how Taylor is currently dealing with Russell's death, the ladies revealed:
"She was very beside herself. I think her concern is her little girl now. It's heart breaking."
"We spent a couple of evenings with her this week. She's trying to digest everything. We've tried to be as supportive as possible but her priority is her little girl. It's been very very sad. Very difficult,' she added, referring to Taylor and Russell's five-year-old daughter Kennedy.'
"I always saw him as being reserved and quiet. I knew that they had their issues. But no-one could have anticipated something like that."
Poor Taylor. We really do feel for her.
