BEVERLY HILLS (LALATE) – An Adrienne Maloof divorce after separation is revealed on RHOBH tonight. But why did Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif split? Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif have never been clear to news why their separated and eventually divorced. But tonight, RHOBH filming implies that Maloof’s bickering was a factor. Yet, other friends of Maloof put the blame on someone else. This season has left fans guessing “what did Brandy say about Adrienne Maloof’s family” and “does Adrienne Maloof only own 2% of the Palms”. Tonight fans are left unsure why did Adrienne Maloof and Paul separate.
Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif’s divorce has loomed all season long. As reported first on LALATE, the divorce would strike RHOBH toward the end of the season. RHOBH has been giving tidbits of the couple’s marital breakdown in recent weeks. First, during the fire that hit Lisa Vanderpump’s old house, Adrienne Maloof flees her house with her kids. But Paul ridicules Adrienne and stays put. Then, during the Kyle Richards store opening, Paul bickers with Adrienne over where the front door is located.
Last season, the bickering between Paul and Adrienne was seen as comedic. Bravo at the time referred to them as the Bickersons. But this season, Adrienne has been downright rude to Paul, scene after scene. During tonight’s episode, Adrienne doesn’t hold back. She says to her then husband “make yourself useable!” She hands Paul plates, like he is her hired help. “These are dinner plates?” asks Paul. Adrienne raises her voice “that’s okay.” At Kyle’s white party, viewers learned that Adrienne’s cook, Bernie, has been battling with Brandi. Since filming ended, Paul has sued Bernie regarding allegations stemming from the divorce.
In his one-on-one interviews this season, Paul, once sarcastic and humorous, now seems very agitated. Strangely, the RHOBH reunion will feature a tape of Paul. But Adrienne skips the reunion all together. Paul says of Adrienne tonight “typical dig, typical insult, I’m used to it. He is not going to want these plates here.” Adrienne fumes back at Paul “God bless you.”
During tonight’s function, Adrienne clearly doesn’t grasp how rude she has been speaking to Paul. So when her assistant tells that her Paul has left the party, Adrienne has a vacant look on her face. “Where is Paul?” she asks. The assistant replies “He seemed upset, I think he left. He said ‘just tell Adrienne I left.'”
Paul left, and eventually never came back. The couple divorced shortly near, or after, the filming of the current season. And as viewers will watch tonight, Adrienne’s friends try to blame her divorce on Brandi Glanville.
