Adrienne Maloof has her hands full these days. Although she wrapped filming on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 3 a few weeks ago, she’s busy adjusting to life as a single, working mommy of three boys. As you probably already know, she and her husband Dr. Paul Nassif have separated. Now, Adrienne is adding one more thing to her to-do list: a potential spin-off show!
According to Radar Online, Adrienne and her family are in talks with NBC, Bravo’s mother station, for a new reality show. “The show is in the works and it will focus on Adrienne and her brothers and the Maloof family business. The show is in the early planning stages but it will be a competition-style reality show based around family businesses,” the source says.

The Maloof empire includes ownership of the Sacramento Kings and The Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. They recently expanded their businesses with the launch of Maloof Music, which is currently working with Ali Lohan, and Maloof Productions. Their production company produced the 2006 film Feast and is currently working on The Big Biazarro, starring Pierce Brosnan. In other words, this family is pretty darn busy.
There were recent rumors of the Maloof empire running into some serious financial difficulties, including reports that they sold off most all of their stake in the Palms Resort and Casino as well as the family-owned beer distributorship. (You can read all about that here as well as a timeline showing how the Maloof empire came to be, beginning with the acquisition of a Coors distributorship in 1937.)
The Maloof’s new show will be much different than Real Housewives of Beverly Hills meaning less legal drama (at lease we hope) and booze-induced breakdowns. “The new show will not be a catty fight fest, but will focus on finding new businesses,” the source says. “Everyone is very excited about the possible new show and the network believes in the Maloof brand of luxury, business, family and hard work ethics.”
Of course, we have to remember that this is Radar Online with a “source” reporting on Adrienne Maloof. That combination hasn’t had too great of a track record of late as far as accuracy goes.
Adrienne isn’t the first Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star to land her own show. Cast mate Lisa Vanderpump’s new show SUR was recently announced as part of Bravo’s line-up. No word on a premiere date for either housewife’s show.
