During the filming of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion special recently, Cohen was not his usual affable self as he icily announced that Maloof had blown off the taping, as evident in this clip just posted on Bravo’s website.
RadarOnline.com was first to report that Maloof, 51, would not attending the taping, which happened on Friday, March 1.
A clearly unhappy Cohen faced the camera to make the announcement, saying: “Well, today we are missing one of the Housewives who’s been with us since the beginning. Adrienne Maloof has decided not to participate today.
“This season was hard on Adrienne, as you all know. A secret about her family was revealed by Brandi. (Glanville) And from that moment on, Adrienne refused to speak directly about it. We know that frustrated you in the audience. It frustrated all of us too…” he said.
“Adrienne won’t be here to tell her side of the story. Not only is she absent tonight, but she won’t be on the show next season,” Cohen stated.
And then, after a dramatic pause, Cohen finished with this zinger: “Adrienne Maloof’s final act as a Housewife was NOT showing up tonight.”
