"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"

Armstrong Funeral

Will NOT Be Taped

8/18/2011 1:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bravo
will not have "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cameras rolling when Russell Armstrong's funeral takes place ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us there's some turmoil at the network -- while everyone realizes Russell's death will make the show more dramatic and watchable ... they're also nervous about pushing the envelope too far.

We're told Bravo doesn't know how much Russell footage, if any, will air in the show's second season -- but the one thing everyone agrees on is not taping the funeral services.

We're also told the cast had a meeting yesterday -- sans network execs -- to console each other.  Taylor Armstrong was not there.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Nor should it be. They have no right. Period. I don't give a hang what the contracts say, it's none of their - or the viewing public's - business.

Wasn't the next season set to premier soon? That means filming would have been finished anyway. What, was bravo going to get the camera crews off hiatus so they could be privy to his funeral? Pricks.

Stop acting like you're a family! You are a network after ratings, & that's all! That goes for andy cohen too! Bunch of phonies. Probably asked to get a shot of his body.

Russel's wish was to be cremated. Screw this LA burial crap. Cemetery to the stars? Let the wives have it. It's the ultimate status symbol, they should love that.

Oh please. They'll be filming and promo'ing every single thing about his death, all the drama etc. They may cut one actual funeral service shot, but they'll show graveside and travel to and forth and blah, blah, blah. They are truly the most despicable, disgusting, repulsive bunch of golddigging skanks alive. Bravo having tact? Hahahahahah, please, stop it you're killing me.

another example of a money hungry whore who exploding her family for fame and fortune, she bashed him every chance she got..Kelsey Grammer's bimbo ex has done nothing but bash him to..I see why he left that fake bi^ch! Now a man is dead and his mother has to listen and deal with mote crap. Its not Bravo's fault he is dead, but maybe they will stop allowing people to be torn down for ratings.Its disgusting

Taylor is a trouble maker, if you noticed she tried to come between Kim and her sister (forgot name), she is very manipulative, and she is very jealous of Kim. Imagine how she treated her husband. She also tried to manipulate Camille, and started everyone hating on her a while.

I think Lisa picked up on her jealousy.

Be yourself Taylor then no one can accuse you of being fake!

Why does any one watch any of these horrible shows, every one of them are showing how disgusting our society is. It's all about me this, me that, selfish morale corrupt people. She files for divorce and now is fighting his parents for his remains. How disgusting can you get, oh that's right it's for her son--- not buying what she is selling.
