Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif begin separation
Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Paul Nassif tried, but just couldn’t make his marriage to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof pretty. After nine years and three sons together, the M.D. has decided to begin the process of calling it quits on his marriage.
Both parties are asking for privacy, but when there’s a Real Housewife involved, there’s no such thing. Apparently, Maloof knew Nassif’s intentions to end the marriage, so even before he filed, she had been talking to several reporters about how her children were her ultimate concern. However, after the papers had been submitted to the California court system, Maloof’s only comment has been a tweet about her new member of the family – a teacup yorkie.
Viewers of the show might have seen this coming. The couple, who had been part of the hit Bravo show since 2010, were arguing more than usual and Maloof was going through a very difficult time on the set. She was the target of a majority of the drama during the upcoming season, and the marriage just couldn’t deal with it.
Another reason their divorce wasn’t a total shock is that there is plenty of precedent in the Real Housewives franchise with its stars divorcing, separating or worse from their significant others. Between all the shows – Orange County, New York, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, and Miami – there have been 14 divorces! The most shocking incident of course last year’s suicide of Russell Armstrong, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong’s then-estranged husband.
