BEVERLY HILLS (LALATE) – What is the Adrienne Maloof secret about her family? The Adrienne Maloof secret, revealed by Brandy Glanville, gets revisited in generalities on the RHOBH reunion next Monday. The reunion airs after Adrienne Maloof’s final episode, announcing her divorce.
But on Monday, don’t expect RHOBH cast members to reveal the “secret”. In fact, it’s not much of a secret. It’s appeared even on a news magazine cover this year. All season long, fans have been left to guess what did Brandy say about Adrienne Maloof’s family. Next Monday, the reunion enhances that guessing game. The show says a “secret” has been “revealed”. But it won’t be revealed on the telecast. Rather, news has already announced that Maloof used a surrogate for the birth of her twin boys.
The RHOBH reunion will get the unusual introduction by Andy Cohen about the secret. “A secret about her family was revealed by Brandi. And from that moment on, Adrienne refused to speak directly about it. We know that frustrated you in the audience. It frustrated all of us too. Adrienne won’t be here to tell her side of the story. Not only is she absent tonight, but she won’t be on the show next season.”
Lisa Vanderpump this season told news that in her opinion Brandi made a “truthful statement”. Maloof called the Brandi remarks untrue, and part of “toxicity” and “character assassination”. Lisa also told news that in her opinion the remarks were not character assassination.
Ironically, Adrienne’s absence comes one year after she made false allegations about Lisa selling stories. Before the current season, an explosive 2012 RHOBH reunion telecast featured Adrienne Maloof falsely accusing Lisa Vanderpump of selling stories to the news media. It also featured Brandi claiming that Adrienne wanted cast members to gang up on Lisa during the reunion telecast.
Back in 2012, in an interview with the late Lynn n Chicago, Brandi said allegedly “It was like Survivor, they meet up to go after one or the other and so you’ll hear me say, ‘I’m sorry I couldn’t make the meeting’ they planned it all beforehand..They all decided to have a go at Lisa and it’s all silly, petty stuff!” As to alleged motive, Brandi said “Adrienne was upset over Lisa dubbing her shoes “The Maloof Hoof” for example. Really? That’s all they’ve got?”
At the same time, OK Magazine claimed that Adrienne allegedly planned to go after Lisa in the 2012 reunion. “Adrienne called all the girls together, they planned to go after her”, claimed OK at the time. This season in Las Vegas, Brandi made the same allegations about the 2012 reunion as well.
Maloof has confirmed her decision not to appear on the reunion show. She also told news this season. “I think all of you know that I am NOT the biggest fan of drama.”
