The smash installment of the show stars Kyle and Kim Richards, Adrienne Maloof, Camille Grammer, new additions Dana Wilkey and Brandi Glanville -- plus returning star Taylor Armstrong. Armstrong, 40, made headlines last month when her estranged husband, Russell, took his own life; the couple's marital troubles were a focal point on the first season.
Immediately after Russell's tragic death, the future of RHOBH -- and what Bravo planned to do with already-finished episode -- was thrown into doubt.
But the cable network confirmed the Sept. 5 premiere date would stick -- with some alterations. "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. Re-editing of the episodes is still underway," Frances Berwick, the President of Bravo Media, told Us Weekly in a statement.
