Housewifes Of Beverly Hills

Housewifes Of Beverly Hills, Bravo reportedly weighing what to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after the news became known that Russell Armstrong, former husband of a cable series, was found dead Monday in an apparent suicide.
Armstrong was a character on the soap opera reality, one of the routes concerned, the history of their marriage strained by Taylor Armstrong. The second season of the series will premiere on September 5.
According to reports, no suicide note was found, leaving the survivors to speculate on the reasons for Russell. Taylor divorced him last month, based on verbal and physical abuse, which seemed to confirm in an interview with People magazine. (“I push it? Yes, maybe things happened in the heat of the moment, but it was during a time in our lives that was characteristic of what we were. This show has literally pushed us to the limit. “) Russell Armstrong, a venture capitalist, was also experiencing business problems, and had complained about the pressure of the game on television.
Now Bravo has to do with the ability to link his death in the show – RHOBH was still in production, but not shooting this week – or rule out the season premiere. That the dilemma exists at all is a kind of commentary on the franchise Real Housewives in general. On the one hand, it might seem the farm to air some time after death – which, of course, only increase interest in the show. On the other hand, does not speak well of a reality show that could push the air is, well, reality.
If RHOBH what is apparently an honest show on a slice of society and the families of high-level characters, then it should be trusted to discuss the situation with a death in the family, which after all is the one thing certain in life. However, the show Real Women, whatever there charm, is truly entertainment: soaps designed for use gawking at their visible stars. RHOBH could run death of Russell in the season, but should be a very different kind of show. And, of course, to give a very honest accounting would have to see the effect of making the show on the life of his characters. (Not to mention the fact that Taylor, every housewife and real, the show is literally a job, and therefore a source of income.)
That’s not to say that Russell did RHOBH Armstrong committed suicide. There were a lot of stressors in your life and the series, and like many reality-show-related controversies, one factor of the chicken and the egg: Is the sample their volatile or non-volatile subjects that attract subjects? Additionally, show-related pressures and no-show-related have a way of reinforcing, Armstrong Associates interviewed after his death have said their financial problems can be traced in part to maintain a lifestyle Housewives Real – a circumstance which is certainly not limited to people in reality shows.
What can be said is that Russell did not go well in the first season. I did not have much screen time as Taylor, but on screen and talk about others around him, came across as rude and aggressive, a guy who first was drawn to Taylor as “man’s man” but that was dominant insensitive in their relationship. “Sometimes she does not want to fight him,” one of Taylor’s friends says, “and she will do something” will not do. (Again, to be fair, much of what we “learned” Russell was from their characterization by others.)
In the first episode of Season 2, sent to critics, Russell does not appear, but we see that not everything is great in his marriage and Taylor. However, Taylor is still trying to figure things out, gone to therapy, and the first scene of Taylor, goes shopping for lingerie to spice things up at home. She’s trying, she says, “put in the effort” and “enhance intimacy.” Preview of coming episodes show her crying about her marriage problems.
The show was already going to have to deal with the dissolution of marriage and Russell Taylor. (This is, indeed, the first marriage, real housewives all the way.) Bravo clear that dare not represent that, but Russell’s death may be too. I wish I could say RHOBH was the kind of show that trust to handle this story, but I’m not sure that it is able to face the hard truths, complexities and sensitivity here. Among them: Russell and Taylor had a daughter 5 years old, who never enrolled in the choices of their parents, and now has to deal with the loss of his father. That’s a kind of reality I’m not sure he wants a Real Housewives show me.
