Can you still star in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills if you are not a housewife? It seems we will be finding that out soon enough, as Paul Nassif filed the paperwork today in Los Angeles Superior Court to legally separate from his wife, Adrienne Maloof. This means we could be down one more housewife on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
It seems that Paul Nassif was in New York City a couple weeks ago doing press for his new New York plastic surgery office and nothing was ever mentioned of the possible split. While Nassif states the couple married on May 2, 2002, he does not list a date of separation. He states irreconcilable differences for the breakdown of the marriage and is seeking joint custody of their children: Gavin, nine years old, and twins Christian and Collin, six years old.
While the news comes as a shock to many of Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif’s family and friends, it will definitely be something that all of us will get a chance to see. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills 2012 is currently taping for it’s newest season. A show insider said: “They are in production right now. They have been filming for several weeks and no one saw this coming, not even the producers. Now the cameras will be able to capture what happens next as they are still shooting.”
Adrienne Maloof also released a statement regarding the separation from Paul Nassif: “I’m so sorry that this is happening, but my children are my life, and sometimes we need to do what’s best for them. It’s an unfortunate situation, but I have to have my kids’ best interest at heart.”
