Ever since Bravo bleeped out the big bombshell Brandi Glanville dropped about Adrienne Maloof on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we've been wondering, pondering, speculating, and guessing what exactly it was she said. We thought we knew, but weren't quite sure as Bravo and all of the Housewives have been uncharacteristically quiet about the whole deal.
Fear of (more) lawsuits, contracts, or something has kept one of television's biggest secrets amazingly hush hush ... until now. Us Weekly has the details, and finally we know just what the big deal was.
According to the magazine's sources, it was just what we expected -- that Adrienne used a surrogate to have her twin sons, Christian and Colin, who are now 6.
A source told the magazine she had a very difficult pregnancy with her 9-year-old son, Gavin, and so she decided to use a surrogate. "A child psychologist recommended she wait until they are 10 years old. She doesn’t want them teased at school or asked about it."

The source said Adrienne was planning to tell them on her own time, and now she's "furious" that Brandi would just blurt it out. And I get that. She should be mad if that's the case. Anyone would be, but the level she's taken it to since has made it so much more of an issue than if she had just ignored it. Clearly Bravo couldn't air what Brandi said, so they wouldn't have even had a story line if she'd just ignored her.
Also, there's the little matter of what Adrienne did to Brandi that made her furious enough to blurt it out. She's indicated that it involved her kids, so maybe Adrienne did something even worse. I wish Brandi would spill on that.
In any case, now we know. Well, as long as we believe Us Weekly's sources. I don't know if we'll ever get official confirmation that Brandi's comment was about Adrienne's surrogacy, but this may be about as close as we come.
Do you think the big secret could be anything other than Adrienne's use of a surrogate?
