Fans of another "Real Housewives" franchise will have to wait for their show to return.
As Bravo continues to re-edit "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" in the wake of the suicide of Russell Armstrong, a spokesperson for the network has confirmed to CNN that the shooting schedule for "The Real Housewives of New York City" has been "pushed back due to finalizing production details."
The network earlier released a statement saying that no decision has been made yet regarding rescheduling the premiere of the new season of the "Beverly Hills" show and a rep for Bravo reiterated that to CNN on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, In Touch Weekly cited an unnamed source who claimed Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's 13-year marriage had come to an end, but the pair are denying the report.

Their statement echoes earlier tweets sent out by Will Smith's son from a prior marriage, Trey.

Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have expanded their family with a Jack Russell Terrier rescue puppy, reports People.
The Jack Russell, named Beth, was dropped at the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in London when she was just 12 weeks old, according to Clarence House. She is one of over a hundred stray dogs that came to the U.K. shelter in July.
Last fall, Camilla opened the shelter’s new cattery, and mentioned to staff that she’d love another Jack Russell since her beloved Freddy had died. (Freddy was such a part of the family that Camilla’s son Tom named his own child after the dog!)
