In a preview of Monday’s reunion episode, cast members Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards dissect rumors spread by Adrienne’s chef Bernie Guzman, that her ex-husband Paul Nassif was physically abusive to her during their marriage.
Bravo’s Andy Cohen asked the ladies about our reports last fall, which included photos of Adrienne’s bruised and battered back that were posted by the chef on his Facebook page.
Kyle said “there was never any indication of” abuse she saw between the couple, who she described as “loving, nurturing [and] kind” parents to their three sons. She said she thought that the leaked photos were another attempt by the celebrity chef to get attention for himself, noting he had a history of said behavior.

Lisa reasoned Adrienne had to be complicit with the chef’s actions, based on her lack of a response.
“She obviously condoned it, what he put on RadarOnline.com, otherwise she would have denied it,” the eloquent Dancing with the Stars contestant said of her former castmate. “If someone said that about my husband … I’d be vociferously denying it.”
Part two of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion airs on Bravo next Monday at 8/7c.
