Well, folks, it’s been speculated for a few weeks now, but it is finally official. Adrienne Maloof will not be returning to the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The former Housewife told everyone on Monday, March 4: ““To my loyal fans … It was time to exit RHOBH,” Maloof wrote on her website. “The show served as a wonderful platform for all the amazing projects that I have in the works. I am forever grateful to my fans, thank you for your support, and stay tuned!” We can’t say this was a surprise however. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here
It had been widely speculated for weeks that Adrienne would be asked not to return to the show after skipping the series’ reunion special. However, Maloof says that she chose to quit the show, telling producers the show had become too intrusive and was ruining both her family and personal life.
We are not sure who’s telling the truth here, but it is a fact that Adrienne didn’t attend the taping of the reunion special. Apparently, her reason for skipping out was that she knew her divorce (from former husband Paul Nassif, also on the show), would be a hot topic of conversation at the reunion and her lawyers had asked her not to discuss the matter. So, she decided just not to go at all.
It sure is a big change from the way that Adrienne Maloof appeared when she started working on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, way back in season one. She was a happily married mom of three, and things seemed pretty blissful for her. But, nothing lasts forever, apparently. During last year’s Season 3 filming, with no warning, Adrienne abruptly split from husband Paul Nasiff after ten years of marriage.
The divorce quickly turned nasty, with lots of name calling from both parties (Paul said she drank too much, and she accused him of abusing their children). Finally, the divorce was finalized in November of 2012, but that doesn’t mean things have become any more amicable between the two.
Things have been sort of rocky for Adrienne since her divorce. However, she didn’t take long to rebound and begin dating, wait for it, Rod Stewart’s 32 year old son Sean. (Even weirder? Sean’s stepmom is reported to be Adrienne’s replacement on Real Housewives next season!) While she may have found a man, it seems like Adrienne is still having trouble dealing with some of her “enemies” from past seasons.
Just hours after she skipped out on the Real Housewives reunion, she came face to face with arch nemesis and fellow Housewife Brandi Glanville at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills. Sources say the two didn’t speak, but Brandi followed Adrienne into the ladies room, where Adrienne and her friends completely ignored Brandi and walked right past her.
Sources who were there say that the encounter was really awkward and a little creepy. Things have been strained to say the least between the two, since Glanville revealed to the world that Maloof’s twins were actually born via surrogate.
