The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof — who recently announced that she and husband Dr. Paul Nassif have separated — exclusively tells RadarOnline.com that “it’s very difficult” to end her marriage.
“I have to say, like any marriage this is a time where there’s a bump in the road,” Adrienne shared with us at the launch party for her newest business endeavor, designer iPhone covers OMG Cases, at Kitson, a store on posh Robertson Boulevard in West Hollywood, CA.
She admitted that their fame has made the split very painful.
“We’re working on it, it just happens to be on public display. It is very difficult.
“It’s been difficult, so I’m looking forward to a positive resolution. The most important thing is I have beautiful healthy kids.”
The Maloof family owns the Palms Casino in Las Vegas and the Sacramento Kings basketball team, and Adrienne credits them with helping her launch her own businesses.
“My father instilled a hard work ethic in all of us; I want to show my children hard work and why not take it and make your own brand what else would you do?”
“I’m a very creative person and when I have an idea I actually follow though, most people don’t follow through, I do.”
Adrienne has become the target of Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville during the third season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she said she isn’t letting their mean girl clique get her down.
“It’s been difficult because there is a lot of drama this year, and I’ve had to work my way through this drama. It’s life.
“It’s difficult, but we all go through our issues. I don’t know, I’m trying to figure things out. I just know in my heart I have my good true friends and that’s all that matters to me hopefully they’re there for me.”
Adrienne spoke positively about her future though, telling RadarOnline.com: “Things could be worse I always try to find this glass half full.”
