The Bravo community is still reeling from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong’s estranged husband Russell Armstrong taking his own life Monday.

Many are wondering what is going to happen since RHOBH was set to premiere September 5, with Taylor’s story line about divorcing Russell laid out in the preview released weeks ago (which has now been removed from the website).

Andy Cohen, the Watch What Happens Live host (and Exec VP of original programming/development), just posted on his blog titled “Picking Up the Pieces” where things stand:

“We’re all still trying to process yesterday’s very sad news, and looking at how to proceed with the series, which has finished primary production and was set to premiere on Labor Day,” Cohen says.

“We’ll let you know what we decide when we do. In the meantime, we’re sending our thoughts and prayers to Taylor and the rest of Russell’s family.”

As do ours.

Meanwhile, it was announced today that the official cause of death has been listed as hanging by suicide.
