Adrienne Maloof Blames Brandi Glanville For Adrienne's Divorce

Adrienne Maloof sold another interview, this time to Life & Style and says that the reason that Adrienne and Paul got a divorce is because Brandi mentioned the whole surrogate thing to everyone. “Brandi did destroy our family. Right now I’m really hurt and upset, especially because I’ve stuck up for Brandi as a mother in the past.” Meanwhile, Brandi told the magazine that everyone knew about it and that Adrienne always lied about it and had an entire story about giving birth, which she really didn't do. Here is the interesting thing about all of this. A year ago I heard about the confrontation so I did the blind item about it, but if Bravo had chosen to not even have that two minutes of conversation air, then who would really ever know. The way Bravo decided to bleep out just a few seconds of the conversation leaving this big mystery is what drove all the publicity. They have never done that before or since. Also, if you want to be in a national reality show, and want the publicity for yourself and your projects, don't you think there are going to be some things that come out? It doesn't get to be all what you want.

Some of these HW always think they can control the exposure, but with all that wine things come out!

Brooke said...

They look like twins which all the surgery they both have had. Look: same nose, same chin, same lips... Blech!

PuggleWug said...

Maloof threatened to sue, which is why it didn't air.

No Disrespect said...

Oh, whateves... Keep your stories straight, Adrienne. First you got divorced because Paul "abused" you and your boys... Now it's because a woman called you out on some lie you perpetuated? Puh-leeze...

Laura said...

How can you sue if it is the truth?

Nellie said...

Why would this lead to her divorce? Did her husband not know she used a surrogate? LOL. Right.

Tuxedo Cat said...

Well, if Adrienne hadn't lied in the first place there wouldn't have been anything for Brandi to blab about.

PuggleWug said...

Laura, I honestly have no clue what they would sue for. Bravo never resists airing the dirty laundry of these women, except for this instance.

VIPblonde said...

Michael K said the secret is that Adrienne is the Beast from Beauty and the Beast. I'm inclined to agree with him! Can't stand her. I hope it's her last season. What happened to "friends don't sue friends" and throwing shade at people who "sell stories," when she's the one who does all these things?

hotchacha said...

I don't watch the Housewives shows so I have no idea who these crazy people are.

Should I care about this? If so, can someone just break down who the fun ones are and why we like them?

Laura said...

That is true Puggle, I wonder if they bleeped it because it involved children.

SueRH said...

Adrienne was a total bitch to Paul way before Brandi said anything.

greenmountaingal said...

I liked Adrienne during the first season of RHBH, but she's become obnoxious since then.

PuggleWug said...

@hotchacha, they are all pretty annoying. I enjoy watching Brandi more, just because she is more interesting than Adrienne.

@Laura, not sure if you watch the New Jersey version, but Bravo doesn't hold back on exploiting the kids. Teresa's daughter Gia clearly knows about all the dysfunction going on around her, and her reactions are always aired. She watched her father break his teeth while drunk, and showed her crying over the situation. I love Bravo shows, but dislike Andy Cohen. He is a total sleeze for putting some of this stuff out there for all to see.

JSierra said...

Laura you can't, that's why there is no lawsuit now.

I love how when Brandi told everyone about the surrogate at dinner none of them were surprised, none of them even flinched. They all just looked at each other like "holy shit I can't believe she just said that on camera". Same with the Kim doing meth in the bathroom thing, Camille had this smug look on her face while Kyle acted like someone had threatened to cut off her Demi hair.

Susan said...

So basically, Bravo is basing an entire season of a reality show on a "secret that everyone in Beverly Hills knows" but has bleeped out the secret so that the viewer has no idea what these asshats are arguing about. And I watch this shit.

Now, Adrienne is putting out the surrogacy thing to the tabs. Are these people for real?

I mean this bleeped out secret that none of the cast can say on air is discussed in a roundabout tedious way EVERY. FREAKING. WEEK.

I think Adrienne and Paul's marriage had major problems before they even got on the show. Clearly, she's in denial about how old she is. I quite like Michael K's theory, actually.

Amber said...

People are expecting a Maloof to be honest and not dole out blame to anyone who crosses their path.

In which case, I have a bridge I think you'd be interested in...

yodelay said...

ANYway....I quite like that dress Brandi is wearing.

Superwife said...

What is Michael K's theory?

prolixe said...

They really need to change the shows to "The Real Housecats of ..." A far more accurate name.

And, yeah, shared plastic surgeon, anyone?

Empress of Socks said...

Yikes, those faces! I was stunned to hear Brandi is only in her early 40's. Granted, with all that surgery people have a hard time guessing your age but that's just because you fall into the "GAH! WTF is that melted monster!?" category, which is *obviously* preferable to "meh, she's mid forties probably"

MadLyb said...

I don't get the housewives popularity at all, or why men would want women like this. They all look like cats and it's not attractive at all. There personalities are crap. I think the rich hubbies let their wives buy the plastic surgery and go shopping to keep them happy while they step out on them with younger women.

Gayeld said...

Or a basketball team.

Alma said...

It is scary. Is the hot new look to morph into a lion? I see it on most of these women. Megan Fox and even Madonna, who i love. Are the doctors getting bored and giving the same look? Wierd.

Susan said...

@ Superwife:
As per VIPBlonde: Michael K said the secret is that Adrienne is the Beast from Beauty and the Beast.

LMAO.

I find the money, the cattiness, plastic surgery, and the gaudaciousness of the homes and attire on Bev Hills to be fascinating.

I don't think Ken steps out on Lisa. I wouldn't be surprised if Mauricio has a sidepiece.

I have a love/hate relationship with Yolanda. I find her story to be quite fascinating, her opinions told from her very high pedestal looking down on the others make me cringe yet crack me up. Her lectures on cooking for your man and girls should be models rather than volley ball players force me to give her a side eye, but she says what she thinks all the time, which I can appreciate. I can't believe David Foster agreed to be on this show. Talk about a pretentious couple.

nevermindthat said...

How exactly did Brandi cause the breakup of Adrienne's marriage? Did Paul not know she used a surrogate either and when he found out there was just no coming back from that. Bitch, please, your marriage was already in trouble and don't be mad at Brandi for revealing the truth. Plus you can't sue Brandi because what Brandi revealed was the truth, so there is no defamation of character on her part.

I hate how these people sigh up for reality shows but don't want people to see their true reality.

VIPblonde said...

@Susan My favorite "not politically correct" moment from Yolanda so far (because she's had a few) was last week when she was lecturing the Mexican workers about learning English. I was dying!!!!! "And what are you going to do tonight?" "Learn English?" Love her! (Because she so often gets lost in translation)

JSierra said...

Susan & VIP have you guys noticed that Yolanda wears different color variations of the same outfit every week? Blue turtleneck with white skinny jeans, grey turtleneck with denim skinny jeans, white turtleneck with dark wash skinny jeans, etc.

VIPblonde said...

@JSierra Don't forget the Hermes belt! :) I like to think that it's her rich-person's version of loungewear

Susan said...

JSierra - Yes! It's her day-to-day uniform. But, when she actually shows up to the dinners or events, I think she looks fabulous. I think she is quite confidant when she is around the other women but her determination on making her marriage the longest one in David Foster's long line of marriages past, seems so desperate to me. Her children are gorgeous. Does anyone else find Yolanda's relationship with Mohammad kinda crazy, too?

I quite like Lisa, actually. I would LOVE to take a stroll in her closet. And live there. With her dogs.

VIP - OMG. I know. But, I don't think she was coming from an evil place. She just really does get lost in translation. I agree with you.

NomNom83 said...

I can't help it, I like Brandi. But just b/c you know something, doesn't mean you have to say it. Adrienne may have been perpetuating a lie, but so what? I get that it was another example of her general dishonesty (according to Brandi), but maybe let the lie that involves her kids slide, you know?

And obviously, Brandi is not the cause of her divorce. Adrienne has lost her damn mind. Which is a shame.

mrknowitall said...

And all this time I thought that they got divorced because Paul beat her. Ya, ri
ght Adrienne.

Crystal Liechty said...

Ohmygosh, you're right! Creeeeeepy.

B626 said...

Team Brandi
Eddie dumped her
She's out there hustling
for a buck constantly
Adrienne M,you big fibber, get out of her
way!

lovelylunacy said...

Adrienne is really getting out there. She's obviously just doing the show for publicity and fame. she's a maloof she was already loaded. She's probably thankful it came out to get her so much attention and cause the divorce so she can be the victim.. and date guys 20 years younger. I liked her season 1. Now I hope she leaves the show.

Mooshki said...

"...or why men would want women like this."

MadLyb, the men are just as fame-, status-, and money-hungry as the women. Sometimes even more so, as hard as that is to believe.

Bravo knew exactly what they were doing. They knew the bleeping would pique people's interest more than if they had aired what she said.

What really pisses me off is that Adrienne is saying that surrogacy is something to be deeply ashamed of. She's hurting her kids more than Brandi ever did.

Another reason that her new version of what happened is so absurd is that her and Paul's bonding over their anger at Brandi was the closest I've seen those two in three seasons of the show. I'd say they divorced despite this incident rather than because of it.

My favorite new Ho is Marissa Zanuck. She's just as outspoken as Brandi, but she's smarter. I hope she becomes a regular when they inevitable drop the boring Yolanda 'My Husband Knows Barbara Streisand!' Foster.

Hotchacha, check out stoopidhousewives.com/ for everything you never wanted to know about the Hos. I know a lot of people like Vancouver best now, but I haven't watched it yet. On Beverly Hills, Lisa Vanderpump is awesome, and Brandi is great because she has absolutely no filter.

Mooshki said...

"she gets lost translation"

Like when she said: "Be careful how you do her makeup or she'll have Chinese eyes?"

Fuck that racist bitch. (And don't try to tell me it's a "cultural difference." If she could learn English, she could learn how not to be a bigot.)

888 said...

Oooh Mooshki, the Two Minutes Hate against "bigots/racists"! Be sure to work yourself up into a spitting frenzy of hate so everyone can see how NOTRACIST you are!

And I wouldn't want Asian eyes, those fuckers look like soulless demons....dead doll eyes. Hell, even they don't want those eyes, why do you think they get that eyelid surgery? (Don't bother to do the 2 minutes hate on me, I'm a racist and not ashamed of it in the least)

Anyhoo....I only really wanted to comment on that Brandi creature. WHAT THE HOLY FUCK IS THAT THING? It looks like a misshapen kitchen witch, like Larry King's hideous wife only slightly younger. I don't have a dog in these Housewives fights (barely know who any of them are and definitely don't care) but good lord that thing is ugly! I can't imagine what it looked like before all that plastic surgery but if this is supposed to be an improvement, that's a tragedy. Her dress is gorgeous, I will say that. Too bad about the very noticeable implant though.

shakey said...

Oh Adrienne honey, you wrecked your marriage way before Brandi came on the scene.

I hope Paul gets custody of the kids. He seems much more hands-on, and he does seem like a nice guy (who needs to lay off his own handiwork).

AndyCane said...

Is 888 our old friend Mr. Single guy? I certainly hope so because two nut jobs is just too good to be true

Tina Mallette said...

Okay this is rich is Enty saying that Adrienne is selling stories yet she accused Lisa of doing the same for money???

Mango said...

@ hotchacha: My personal breakdown on the BH Housewives:

My favorite hands down is Lisa, ('tho my secret boyfriend Barton Fink doesn't like her anymore). I think she has a fabulous sense of humor. She's British, in her 50's, married, owns restaurants.

I like Brandi, who has absolutely no filter. She's the tall, gorgeous one. He husband cheated on her with country warbler LeAnn Rimes and later divorced Brandi to marry LeAnn. I think Brandi deals with that fairly well, considering.

Just when I think I like Kyle, she turns into the cunty Aunt of Paris. One minute she seems like a lot of fun, the next minute she's unleashing Faye Resnick on people.

Kim is a trainwreck, plain and simple. She's a former child actress (return to Witch Mountain, etc.) and the older sister of Kyle. I'm not even quite sure why Bravo has her on the show anymore; she's always filmed off in her own little world, babbling about some weird shit.

I like Yolanda so far. She's obviously hugely privileged (Dutch ex-model, divorced from mogul and remarried to composer David Foster) but I didn't take offense when she told a worker that he should learn English. I thought she said it in a kindly, matter of fact way and told him that when she came to America she didn't speak English and after work every night she sat up learning the language. She's very calming and the voice of reason. For the moment.

Camille - Loathsome the first season but after her divorce from Kelsey Grammer is one of the nicest housewives. Almost too nice. No drama!

Taylor = Grifter with too much plastic surgery. Husband killed himself rather than face the music when his fiscal shenanigans were coming to light. Left Taylor and her young daughter to clean up the mess.

Adrienne Maloof, hotelier. She is married to a BH plastic surgeon, Paul. She's a liar if she's claiming that Brandi broke up her marriage because from day one she's been dismissive towards Paul on camera. The guy is the father of her children and deserves more than that. Her tiff with Lisa goes back to when Lisa's daughter had her bachelorette party at a rival hotel owned by a friend of Lisa's. Adrienne was p.o.'d because she didn't get to flog her hotel on camera.

Did I leave anybody out?

Dead = Your Soul

crila16 said...

Really? Cause I watch the show and I blame Adrienne for Adrienne's divorce. She was cruel and nasty to her husband. If the two of them were really in love and had something solid, nothing would have broken those two apart. Also, I didn't realize lil old Brandi had so much power over Adrienne. Brandi must be proud to know that she can make or break someone's marital relationship, just by telling the truth.

@888...Hi Leanne. Get over your hate for Brandi.

@ Mooshkie. I don't think Yolanda was racist or hateful at all. She was basically saying, if you're living in this country, you should learn the language, just like she had to. She didn't expect for other people to cater to her. She said it very kindly and was giving him great advice. If I moved to France, I would learn to speak french. My ex was from Morocco and he learned the language and speaks beautiful english now. I think it's pure ignorance for anyone to live in someone else's country and not even try to learn the language. Not to even understand the basics is just wrong.

Patricia said...

I was just thinking they had the same nose!

urg8urg said...

Adrienne seems to have gotten bitchier with every drop in her family worth. I guess losing all that money would make most people bitchy.

Susan said...

"Just when I think I like Kyle, she turns into the cunty Aunt of Paris. One minute she seems like a lot of fun, the next minute she's unleashing Faye Resnick on people."

This is pure genius. Thanks for the laugh. I was really shocked when Paris was on an epi. God, she sucks.

Jacq said...

Don't forget that Adrienne is the one who accused Lisa of selling stories to the press. She's a joke

Lelaina Pierce said...

Am I the only person to not understand what is the big secrecy with using a surrogate? Camille used one, too. Who cares? Why have they turned this thing into a multi episode storyline?

I think Yolanda is kind of boring and she and her husband are super pretentious. I do love her refrigerator and am jealous of her access to limitless lemons. I thought it was hilarious when she had Kyle over to try the Master Cleanse, like its something you just do for an afternoon.

shakey said...

For the ratings, Lelaina, for the ratings.
