WHAT?!: Is Adrienne Maloof Leaving 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'?
Adrienne Maloof has been a regular on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" since the show premiered in 2010. But now, it looks like her time with the program has run its course -- TMZ reports that she's in talks with producers to get out of the next season. According to the gossip site, Maloof -- who co-owns the Sacramento Kings basketball team and Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas with her family -- wants out because the show, she says, has wreaked havoc on her personal life (shocker).
To wit, Maloof is going through a nasty divorce from her husband, Paul Nassif. The two announced their split in 2012, and have since been seen with other people. To her great credit, 51-year-old Adrienne has been seen with a much younger man: Rod Stewart's 32-year-old son, Sean Stewart.
TMZ notes that Maloof may have been getting cut from the show anyway, but no confirmation of that comes from the show's producers. The New York Post reports that cast member Taylor Armstrong may also be on her way out.
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" premiered in October of 2010, and is currently in its third season. It's one of six "Real Housewives" franchises.
Maloof was a member of the original cast, and has been a key player on the show since then. She's also worth millions and millions of dollars.
