In 2012, Dr. Paul Nassif survived a very messy divorce from former fellow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and subsequent custody battle, but now the renowned plastic surgeon has found true love again.
The star of new E! reality series Botched opened up about his new girlfriend, Orange County sales executive Chantell de Jong, 45, in an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com.
“She’s a wonderful lady,” gushed Nassif, 52, adding that the couple bonds over their children. “She has kids and I have kids. She’s just a wonderful person.”
Unlike his very dramatic past relationship, the father of three boys said his new romance “has no tension or stress! It’s just an enjoyable, nice relationship.”
Nassif also has an enjoyable relationship at work: The star has teamed up with his fellow plastic surgeon and friend of 15 years, Dr. Terry Dubrow, for their reality series Botched.
Nassif says the two pals joke around with each other, and get together for dinner and drinks after office hours.
“What we do is extremely serious,” he explains. “There are times we need some levity.”
Watch Nassif and Dubrow repair new patients’ “botched” former surgeries on the E! series, airing Sundays at 10 PM.
