Adrienne Maloof has been keeping a low profile since the news of her split from her husband Paul Nassif broke, even skipping the reunion for her reality show, and has exclusively learned that one of the reasons behind their breakup was the way he dealt with their new found fame.

Since joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,  the couple has skyrocketed to fame, with their every move catalogued by Bravo's reality cameras, and a source close to the couple said that while she handled it with grace, Paul struggled with their exposure.

"Paul let the fame go to his head. He was jealous of Adrienne's success, and he didn't handle that well."

As Adrienne's business opportunities soared, the source said his attitude soured. "Paul has always been envious of his wife, and he got crankier as they became celebrities."

The couple, famous for bickering on the show, also struggled behind the scenes.

"Paul was a completely different person in front of the cameras, the way he acted for them was all for show; he turned it on for them, and then he turned it off when the cameras went away.
