The show will go on, but will you watch what happens?

Despite the recent suicide of Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, Russell Armstrong, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere as planned on Sept. 5, Bravo announced Wednesday.

The network said the show has been re-edited and the premiere will begin with a recent interview with several cast members – although reportedly not Taylor. Its broadcast also will include public service announcements to raise awareness of suicide prevention.

Taylor, who was devastated by Russell's death, attended his memorial service in Los Angeles only last week.

The Beverly Hills premiere airs Monday (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo – will you tune in? Tell us below:

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills finally had something to smile about Saturday, when Pandora Vanderpump, the 24-year-old daughter of star Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd, married her longtime boyfriend, Jason Sabo.

The younger Vanderpump and Sabo exchanged vows at her parents' estate in Beverly Hills.

"It was a breathtaking wedding. Beautiful. Everyone was happy," an eyewitness tells PEOPLE.

"There was a lot of pink, and all the women were required to wear floor-length dresses," the insider adds.

Why Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Should Be Scrapped

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Scrap the Show, Says PEOPLE TV Critic

Originally posted 08/22/2011 03:15PM

A reality show may present itself as a grand mansion, but it's essentially a prefab house plunked down on what the owners hope looks like solid ground: If an earthquake rumbles below and splits open a fissure, the foundation of the house goes, goes, goes down, down, down.

Bravo has set about trying to repair the tragic mess that is now season 2 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The season, which was scheduled to premiere Sept. 5, will be reedited and possibly postponed in light of the suicide of Housewife Taylor Armstrong's estranged husband, Russell. According to Variety, it's likely that Russell's presence – that is, his life – will be reshaped or reduced.

The fact remains that public interest in the show is now higher than ever. But, in a better world, Bravo would just go ahead and scrap not just the season but the entire series. And I say that as a fan of the show. The first season was one of the most entertaining things ever to come out of Bravo.
