There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the Bravo show, The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, since the suicide of Russell Armstrong. Is the Bravo show to blame for Russell’s suicide? Well fellow Bravo star, Bethenny Frankel, gives her two cents on the debate! Keep reading to find out what Bethenny has to say.
The death of Russell Armstrong sparked a debate that the Bravo show might have actually caused him to commit suicide. Russell’s mother does feel the show played a key part in his depression and probably his suicide. His mother remembers Russell telling her, “Mom, they’re just going to crucify me this season. I’ll never survive it.” Bravo was relatively quiet after the tragedy, but they did let fans know the show’s premiere would air as planned. However, the network does plan to re-edit scenes that covered Russell and Taylor’s relationship.
Now reality TV veteran, Bethenny Frankel is letting her opinion be known on the whole Russell debate. Bethenny told USA Today, “It’s preposterous to blame a TV show for someone’s suicide.” She went on to say she didn’t know the couple, but heard that Russell wasn’t very nice to Taylor. Plus, Bethenny explains, “People sign very lengthy documents and they know what they’re getting into. It’s unfair to blame a TV show for something personal.”
What’s your opinion on this debate? Plus, will you be watching the premiere to see if Russell’s suicide is addressed? Let us know, comment below!
