Will the show still go on?

That's the question Bravo must answer about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in light of Russell Armstrong's shocking suicide. The estranged husband of star Taylor Armstrong died Monday, just three weeks before the scheduled Sept. 5 premiere of the hit reality series' second season.

Here's what network executive and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen told fans about RHOBH's future today:

"We're all still trying to process yesterday's very sad news, and looking at how to proceed with the series," Cohen wrote today in a blog titled "Picking Up the Pieces."

"[RHOBH] has finished primary production and was set to premiere on Labor Day," the Housewives host added. "We'll let you know what we decide when we do"

"In the meantime, we're sending our thoughts and prayers to Taylor and the rest of Russell's family," Cohen concluded, echoing his Twitter post yesterday.

"I am so very sad about today's news," he tweeted—his only other public comment on the tragedy. "My prayers and thoughts are with Taylor Armstrong and her family."
