In the sneak peek at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion, we see Andy Cohen announcing that Adrienne Maloof won't be joining them. He doesn't say anything negative per se, but his tone and carefully chosen words definitely let us know he's pissed about it. As he should be.
Adrienne, however, apparently thinks he's the one "behaving very unprofessionally", which is laughable after everything she's done. For starters, how unprofessional it is NOT to show up for the reunion show after signing on for the season? That's what Real Housewives do. After all of the season's drama, they take to the couches and hash it all out. Just because you don't like what went down, doesn't mean you can just run away. Well, apparently you can, but you shouldn't if you're professional.
She has an excuse though ... of course.
A source told Radar Online:
She knew she would have been thrown to the wolves though if she had gone to the taping, and quite frankly she is through with dealing with all the non stop drama and verbal assaults. Brandi and Lisa were both telling producers before the taping that they were looking forward to pouncing on Adrienne. She heard about it and decided there was no way she was going to let those b****es come after her like that.
Boo. Hoo. Because Adrienne has never pounced on anyone? It's crazy that she's running scared from them. Maybe if they'd have let her bring Faye Resnick to stand up for her, she would have been more willing to show up and face the facts?
I'm glad she's leaving the series, but I think she owed it to viewers to show up for the reunion. If she was in the right and had nothing to hide, then why not defend herself?
This may not be the last we see of her, however. The source also said that Adrienne has been approached to do another reality TV show. She's apparently considering it, with stipulations. " ... if she does decide to go back to reality TV she will be a lot more cautious next time — she will insist on having an executive producer role so she can control how it’s done.” No rush, thanks.
What do you think of Adrienne's diss of Andy Cohen?
