Adrienne Maloof confirms surrogacy? Says Brandi Glanville “ruined” her family

Dr. Paul Nassif and ex wife Adrienne Maloof from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Adrienne Maloof and co-star Brandi Glanville have been at war during the recent episodes of the third season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after Brandi told everyone that Adrienne used a surrogate for her 6-year-old twins Christian and Colin. While the comment was not shown on air by Bravo, it didn’t sit well with Adrienne, and she quickly enlisted the help of her attorneys to silence Brandi. Although Adrienne had previously been advised to not address the issue publicly because of her custody situation with Paul Nassif, their divorce has now been settled and Adrienne is finally opening up about the issue in Life & Style:

“I would think Brandi, being a single mother, would have a heart and understand my feelings, where I’m coming from,” Adrienne tells Life & Style. Adrienne had planned to wait until the 6-year-olds were a few years older before sitting her angels down to reveal that mommy didn’t carry them in her belly. “Brandi took away something so precious from our family,” shares Adrienne.

During Adrienne’s pregnancy with her oldest son Gavin, now 9, she experienced complications serious enough that when it was time for more babies, she opted on a surrogate as a precautionary measure.

Once Brandi revealed her secret, Adrienne cut ties with her former friend (Adrienne was actually the one who brought Brandi on the show) and reportedly refused to film with her. And now, Adrienne is blaming Brandi for driving a wedge between her and her former husband which ultimately led to their summer 2012 split. “Brandi did destroy our family,” Adrienne states. “Right now I’m really hurt and upset, especially because I’ve stuck up for Brandi as a mother in the past.”

Brandi also recently spoke with Life & Style and she says, “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with what I said. We all knew it already. She would always lie about it. It’s not that big of a deal. They’re still your children, just somebody else had to carry them.”

Editor’s Update – Adding insult to injury, Brandi is apparently getting pretty chummy with Adrienne’s ex Paul! (Thus the Life & Style cover story headline “THE ULTIMATE BETERAYAL.”) The two have been exchanging tweets and private text messages since Adrienne’s split. “I believe getting close to Paul is a ploy on Brandi’s part to make herself more relevant,” Adrienne says. “I feel the sudden friendship with him was thought out and vindictive.”

Brandi, of course, offered her usual dismissive two cents, saying, “We’re friendly,” and then further elaborating, “Every once in a while, he’ll text me. He’s very nice.”

But Brandi bows up when addressing Adrienne. “She [Adrienne] is not a very nice person; she pretends to be. I called her to talk to her about the situation. But it’s hard for me to apologize to someone when I feel like they owe me an apology prior to that.”

I think the countdown has already started for when we will see Adrienne Maloof and LeAnn Rimes hanging out together. I give it about three days.

  • No matter how much Maloof pays her publicist, no one believes her lies.

    She has the stench of desperation.

  • mj

    How you respond to something is a CHOICE. It’s a big deal because ADRIENNE made it a big deal… she didn’t have to, she chose to!

    • noneya

      Exactly! It’s not like that moment was on live television. Bravo could have easily just removed that scene, but they decided to just bleep it out. No one watching knew what this secret was until Adrienne went blabbing to anyone that would listen to her woe is me story. If she was an honest person to begin with, this wouldn’t have happened.

  • Savannah

    Maybe secret keeping and lies destoryed her family. All Brandi did was air truth when Adrienne went off about having a c-section with her twins…

  • Feisty

    Adrienne is delusional if she thinks Brandi is the reason Paul divorced her. Honey, we all seen how nasty you were to him on the show. I can just imagine what it was like behind closed doors. Paul is free now! Adrienne is dating a boy that way she can control him. What’s worse using a surrogate or dating a boy???

    • DeeDeDee

      Using a surrogate to have children is bad? Since when?

      • W

        Personally I think it is often better to be honest with children from the beginning. If they hear from early age on that they grew in a different belly than it will be just normal for them and never be a shocking revelation. Using a surrogate is not “bad” – but since potential negative effects (e.g. the psychological effects of the separation from the temporary mother figure for the newborn) have not be completely ruled out (or?), surrogacy should be considered very carefully.

  • Oh no, the secret’s out! Her 6 year olds must watch Real Housewives..

    • Catraa

      LOLOL. Exactly what I was thinking.

  • Jen

    Adrienne is a hot mess, but I really can’t stand Brandi. Them adding her to the show has completely ruined it.

    • Gammy

      Ditto! Can’t stand her either. Love this blog, just the right length. Finally a blog I can read & get the information I want without having to read all the wordy long winded banter :d Thank you! How do I subscribe?

  • Abby

    Adrienne is rather out of touch with reality and doesn’t realize the RHOB audience doesn’t care if she used a surrogate. Look at Camille, nobody even cares about her surrogacies.

    • Nermal

      well, she is over 50, to her generation it is a big deal. It’s the same generation that shunned people with slight disabilities and put them in homes and never talked to them again. I agree, she is soooo out of touch with reality!

      • Gammy

        It’s not a generation deal its a personal insecurity deal as it is with the families you mention that put their family members away for their disabilities. I’m generatin 50 and can assure you it’s not the norm.

  • No suit was ever filed.

    She had no case.

    Yo, Hoofy, STFU

  • micro OP

    why is everyone so vicious?! Brandi: don’t discuss someone else’s secret on camera. Adrienne: don’t blame someone else for the end of your marriage. Paul: don’t contact the mother of your children’s rival. Goodness gracious just because you are angry/are hurt by/ or simply dislike someone doesn’t mean you have to be so nasty! Gross people! Yes all of you!

    • Mima

      LOL good for you 🙂

    • Savannah Nichole

      If it was a secret, no one would have known about it. Adrienne should have never discussed it, if she didn’t want this to leak out. She didn’t stop there though WHY did she not only talk about it but LIE about it? The bottom line is Adrienne should have never said anything about it. This has been blown way up to something a lot bigger than it should be. As far as her marriage goes don’t blame that on Brandi that’s Adrienne’s own fault. It was a mess way before Brandi. The more Adrienne speaks about it the worse she makes it. If Adrienne is looking for pity she’s not going to find it. No matter how many lies she tells.

  • Robin

    Does everyone remember Adrienne saying that you should never sue friends. She had a lot to say when Taylor’s husband wanted to sue Camille for speaking the truth and Adrienne saying you cannot sue someone for telling the truth. She is a hypocrite. I understand her being pissed, but, it was not a legal issue and she was already having issues in her family, obviously, and cannot blame the demise of her marriage on Brandi.

  • itsjustme

    Brandy is sure no angel but a year ago I kinda liked Adrienne. With this behavior, I hope she is off the show next. What a spaz.

  • RHBHFan

    Watching the episode now where Adrienne calls Brandi a liar for talking about this. I guess she has to take that back? I don’t believe Adrienne should have lied and said she carried the twins, but at the same time, I don’t see why it makes a difference whether she tells her children the truth or not. Growing in someone else’s body doesn’t make those kids any less hers.

  • DRAT

    Why are people on Brandi side always? She says things to get attention and be a smart ass and then plays the victim.. I am over her. Please go away and take the nasty Kardashians with you

    • Lily

      I agree with you, wish more people see that. Although I doubt Beandi ruined Adrienne’s marriage, Brandi is everything you said and more.

  • Brandie has NO RIGHT to say that Adrienne & Paul used a surrogate. She just likes to stir the shit pot & say I didn’t say that! Come on, even if your mad at someone you don’t tell shit like that, Brandie knew how Adrienne & Paul felt about this matter & just how much it would hurt them. I can see Adrienne & Paul’s view point on this matter, their the parents of the twins boys. Truly, it was none of Brandie’s business!!
    It would be up to Adrienne and Paul to tell the world and its none of our business either!!
    We don’t know what happens behind Adrienne & Paul’s closed doors, but if they were having problems Brandie didn’t help matters. Adrienne has always been the level headed one of the group.
    Lisa better keep an eye on Brandie, she’ll sleep with Ken in a heart beat. I can see why her husband cheated on her with Leanne Rimes. I quite sure Brandie was sleeping around too. All the housewife’s better watch Brandie.

    I think that when considering wether to appear on a programme such as RHOBH, you would to think deeply about the effects on your family and the very real possibility that other cast members could rake up highly personal matters once the inevitable cat fighting started…? I cannot believe that women of the ages they are could be so naive, or is it just that they are willing to gamble with their families secrets purely to appear on the show, seems very selfish to me. It’s hard to be sympathetic to a lot of their issues and feuds however valid they would be in a normal private life because they chose to play out their lives for entertainment in the t.v. Why with the affluent privileged lives they have would thy choose to go through the misery caused to them by the show…..because they want the public to love them, their homes,cars, children,holidays, they want us to envy them ultimately, but really…..I for one don’t and god less my ‘ordinary’ life, for it truly is my wealth.
