Solid marriages are just as rare as genuine female friendships on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif were one of the only two committed couples on the show. Now, when the new season begins, fans will be treated to the disintegration of their marriage as the cameras roll.
Sad? Yeah. Am I going to watch? Hell yeah. Not that we should delight in other people's painful breakups, but it sure makes for good reality TV. Already, juicy details are emerging about the split.
Those seemingly playful, on-air spats the couple had during the last two seasons were anything but. "Their relationship is very volatile," a source told Us Weekly. Apparently all the bickering was too much for the duo to continue to bear. Paul has filed for legal separation and has asked for joint custody of their three sons: Gavin, 9, and twins Colin and Christian, 6.
But there is still hope of a happy ending. The source also says the pair want to work things out: "They are getting professional help and trying to save their marriage ... They are trying to do what's best for their kids." We'll just have to wait and see what happens when the season kicks off this fall.
Do you hope that Adrienne and Paul reconcile?
