"Adrienne decided at the last minute that she wanted to be a part of the reunion show. Adrienne and Paul had just announced their separation, and Adrienne didn't know if she wanted to be around fellow housewives, Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville as they had been so mean to her during filming," a show insider told RadarOnline.com exclusively. "Adrienne was very raw and sad about the separation, but she held it together. She wanted to show the other girls that she wasn't afraid of them, and had nothing to hide."
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Maloof and her plastic surgeon husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, separated after 10 years of marriage. The former couple have three sons together. Maloof has an ironclad prenup that will protect her family fortune.
"Yolanda Hadid was extremely cold and callous in her remarks about Adrienne's separation. Yolanda basically told Adrienne that stuff happens and she just needed to move on and get over it. Adrienne was a bit baffled by the comments, but didn't let it rattle her. Adrienne handled herself with true grace and class in less than ideal circumstances," the source revealed.
The third season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will premiere this fall on Bravo.
