No decision made on airing 'Real Housewives' counseling sessions
Despite reports to the contrary, Bravo has not yet made a decision on whether the counseling sessions between the late Russell Armstrong and his estranged wife Taylor will make it to air on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
The couple's counseling sessions with Dr. Charles Sophy were filmed and slated to appear on the series. In the aftermath of Armstrong's suicide, the network opted to re-edit the series, leaving the fate of the footage unclear. Reports surfaced Tuesday that the network would proceed with airing the sessions -- premature guesswork, according to the network.
"The producers and Bravo are in the process of re-editing the entire series," a network spokesperson said. "As a result, any report regarding the content of upcoming episodes is mere speculation.”
In the second-season opener, the footage was re-edited to exclude a scene of Taylor browsing for lingerie (an attempt to spice up her marriage). Still intact was the heated dinner scene in which Taylor is shown trying to defend her decision to attend couples therapy.
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" airs Monday nights on Bravo.
