Bravo has had the difficult task of figuring out what to do with upcoming episodes of ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ as well as the reunion show, after the murder of one of its stars, Ashley “A.J.” Jewel. But they have chosen a special way to deal – by releasing never-before-seen video.

By Friday, Bravo had posted a clip on their website of Jewel playing ball with his son and then talking to Kandi Burress about their wedding. The two were set to wed later this year, but separated in August.

On Thursday night’s ‘Housewives’, Burress talked about the future of their relationship, obviously unaware about his impending death. The rest of the ladies went through the episode as they normally would – bickering, laughing and gossiping – as they got ready for a domestic violence charity race

This week, Kandi Burress was particularly anxious about Thursday night’s episode, since it was the the first show since Jewell’s death. “Goodnight! tomorrow is gonna b hard,” Kandi Tweeteed Thursday morning. “Thanks for the prayers. you all have been lifting my spirits daily … He will truly be missed!”
