Adrienne Maloof went through a rough third season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Not only did her co-star Brandi Glanville expose her use of a surrogate for her twin boys, she also lost a few friends. Among them were Taylor Armstrong, who reportedly went so far as to “fire” Adrienne as her daughter Kennedy’s godmother, and Lisa Vanderpump, who Adrienne was previously very close with. Now it appears that the 51-year-old reality star has had enough and is reportedly skipping out on tonight’s Reunion taping!
According to TMZ, Adrienne and soon-to-be ex Paul Nassif signed a restraining order as part of their divorce, prohibiting them from talking about each other, their kids, or the divorce. So if Adrienne attends the Reunion she will be unable to defend herself when her cast mates inevitably bring up her divorce from Paul — and we all know that even if they know she can’t talk about it, they’re going to bring it up! (Yes, I’m looking at you Brandi.)
As you might expect, Bravo is not happy and things allegedly have gotten ugly between them and Ms. Maloof.
While that all seems plausible, another report claims there may be a bit more to it. ”She doesn’t want to deal with the women. They are all going to just hash the same thing over and over again and she needs to be with her kids anyway,” an insider tells Life & Style. “She’s headed to Mammoth Mountain in LA for a field trip with her children instead.”
“She chose to go on the trip instead because that’s where she needs to be. She is always a mom first and foremost,” the insider explains. “But she is also dodging the Housewives because she knows she’ll be attacked and doesn’t want to deal with it.”
In addition to missing The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 3 Reunion Special, Adrienne has reportedly decided to quit the show altogether. “It’s doubtful she’ll come back next year,” asserts the insider. “Nothing has been decided, but she probably won’t. She just got bashed so much this season and it’s been truly hard for her and her own family.”
Oddly enough, the Reunion was rumored to have already happened — and Adrienne was rumored to have missed it back then, too!
