The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof‘s marriage to plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Nassif, is on the rocks, and the couple is talking about formally separating, multiple sources close to the couple tell RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Maloof and Nassif have been married for over nine years, and have three sons together.
It’s been a grueling season of taping for the upcoming season of the hit Bravo television show, and our sources tell us that has taken a toll on their marriage.
“There is no other person. It’s for a variety of reasons that they are contemplating separation. Adrienne was dragged through the dirt during filming of the upcoming season, and it really wore on her. Paul and Adrienne have always fought, it’s how they were as a couple. However, at this point, they realize that they are just want very different things, and neither one of them is happy in the marriage,” an insider tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“Neither one is ready to pull the plug and file for divorce, they are trying to figure out the best way to deal with this, and there is a lot of love between Paul and Adrienne. If they didn’t love each other as much as they do, either one would just walk away without looking back. They aren’t at that stage yet, and are discussing a separation,” another source close to the situation tells us.
Maloof didn’t go on a trip with the other housewives to Paris, France, as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, because she was fed up with the drama. “Adrienne Maloof decided not to go because the other girls keep ganging up on her, and it just got to the point of being utterly ridiculous,” the insider previously told us.
Making matters worse, the reunion show of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is going to be filming on Monday night at an undisclosed location.
“Adrienne might not even go because of all the issues going on in her personal life. Adrienne is putting her family first, and she just doesn’t know if she is ready to face the other women after everything that has transpired over this past season,” the source says.
