After the recent suicide of Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of Taylor Armstrong of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," Bravo has decided to air a special addressing his death, reports the LA Times Showtracker blog. The special will feature the other housewives, but not Taylor, and was filmed today. No word on whether it will be released before the show's scheduled September 5 premiere or after.

Armstrong was found earlier this month in a home on Mulholland Drive, where he had hanged himself. Bravo had filmed scenes prior to that showing the difficulties he and Taylor were having in their marriage.

After his death, his family requested that Bravo edit him, Taylor and their daughter Kennedy out of the show completely. According to Variety, Bravo released a statement on August 19 saying that they would reedit the show, although they did not give details on whether Russell would be edited out entirely or not.
