"Bravo will proceed with the Monday, September 5 premiere date of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,'" Bravo President Frances Berwick confirmed today. "Given that these episodes were filmed months ago, the producers of the show taped a brief interview this week with several of the cast members to introduce the premiere," she added. She also noted that re-editing of the episodes is still underway.
Berwick also said that Bravo has partnered with the Entertainment Industries Council, Inc. (EIC) to raise awareness about suicide prevention. The effort will include PSAs airing on Bravo, and additional information and resources here at Bravotv.com, including access to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which provides free, 24-hour support to anyone in suicidal crisis or emotional distress. The hotline and its national network of local crisis centers provides those in need and their loved ones with crisis counseling and mental health referrals if needed. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-TALK (8255), or on the web at suicidepreventionlifeline.org.
"Our thoughts continue to be with the Armstrong family during this difficult time," Berwick added.
