BEVERLY HILLS (LALATE) – Adrienne Maloof’s divorce, a secret about Adrienne Maloof’s family, and an alleged 2% ownership of the Palms dominates the RHOBH reunion next week. “Adrienne Maloof’s Final Act” and “Adrienne Maloof’s final episode appearance” are headlining RHOBH’s reunion for next week. But next Monday, fans will be left asking what is the secret about Adrienne Maloof’s family, what did Brandi say about Adrienne’s family, does Adrienne only own 2% of the Palms, and the biggest mystery, why did Adrienne skip the reunion show.
In arguably the first time ever in Housewives history, Andy Cohen appears furious right from the start. In a stern tone, Andy Cohen reads a prepared speech. It remains unclear if Bravo corporate counsel wrote Cohen’s words, but there is clear careful word selection at play. RHOBH will do something perhaps never done before in Housewives history. The show will go from the finale right into the reunion show next week. And Andy Cohen is peeved.
“Today we are missing one of the housewives that has been with us since the beginning. Adrienne Maloof has decided not to participate today. This season was hard on Adrienne. As you know, a secret about her family was revealed by Brandy. And from that point on, Adrienne refused to speak directly about it.”
Maloof has since admitted to news that she used a surrogate for the birth of her twins. Andy adds “We know it frustrated all of you in the audience. It frustrated us too. If you have read the tabloids you might theories about what the secret is.” In fact, there was no secret by the end of the season.
But then Cohen grows more peeved. “Adrienne won’t be here to tell her side of the story. Not only she is absent tonight but she wont be on the show next season.”
So was Adrienne Maloof fired? Cohen says the sentence so stern that viewers will reach their own conclusions. And then Cohen delivers probably his sternest words ever in a reunion show. “Adrienne Maloof’s final act as a housewife is not showing up tonight.”
