Sources tell TMZ that once the money matter was settled, the parties agreed to dissolve their marriage no problem! Apparently the secret sauce to working things out was getting extended families involve. Both Paul's brother Chris Nassif and Adrienne's brother Joe Maloof led the pair through financial mediation so no one felt they were getting screwed.
The former couple released a joint statement today:
"We're happy to announce we have reached agreement on a settlement. There has been so much untrue negative innuendo and destructive rumors beyond our control … We want the best for each other and we're confident we can help each other make a continuing positive impact with our children. Our goal is for our children to have stable and nurturing relationships with both of us so we can all find as much happiness as possible. We appreciate the good wishes we continue to receive from our supporters around the world."
Finally, a new housewife that I'm super excited to see! I have always held a special place in my heart for the ladies of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It's not because I like their personalities more than the women of the other franchises. I think I'm just enthralled with their amazing lifestyles. They are head and shoulders above the other housewives when it comes to vacation homes, couture, and bling. I'm addicted!
What's even more exciting about the RHOBH cast is that the newbies are stirring up more drama than their veteran counterparts. You have to love when a new addition comes into the situation with guns blazing. It's awesome. Having already decided that Yolanda Foster was going to be my dark horse favorite, I am disappointed in myself for not giving more credit to Marisa Zanuck. As viewers, we haven't been introduced to this firecracker yet, but she's already schooled in working the media. How can you not respect that?
Smearing a bunch of concealer on your lips is not cute – it's disturbing. Just as wearing "suntan" pantyhose is not cute. Why do you want to look lip-less? Especially when you've surgically enhanced them already?
On the bright note, Splits Richards only wore ONE caftan-y garment last night. That's like some kind of reality TV milestone, right?
Also what think you of the intros. I thought they were all cute, HOWEVER Taylor's about 'working too hard for this zip code' was not appropriate in my opinion.
So let us begin… Lisa Vanderpump levitates above these ladies like the fabulous beacon of pink glow that she is. She is the goddess of this bunch, like Glenda The Good Witch on Wizard of Oz. And now she has moved to a fabulous new home – far more chic than her old overblown digs. That closet. Her glow-y, plush bedroom. I really wish Lisa would adopt me and then I could throw away all her pink satin blouses embellished by Pandora's bedazzler and we'd be one big happy, wine-sipping family.
If there's one word that isn't in Brandi Glanville's vocab, it would have to be "sugar-coated". One of the things I adore about Brandi's sassy style is that she just says whatever is on her mind. She doesn't worry about being PC, nor does she care that others will get ticked at her. Brandidoesn't hide a single thought.
A perfect example is her most recent interview. Brandi let it all hang out – addressing her issues withTaylor Armstrong and Adrienne Maloof, explaining how hard it was to get used to the craziness of the show and more!
Brandi says that the drama on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is the real deal. Including the infamous "Games Night" episode last year when Kim Richards hid her crutches. Brandi says nobody could help her out of that situation. "I’m still scarred from that night. When I watch that scene, I get knots in my stomach, because I remember how horrible it was. I was crying at one point (during filming), and I remember one of the producers—you can’t break the wall, but there are producers everywhere—and I was like, I just want to leave, can someone get my crutches? And his face, he couldn’t do anything. I wasn’t used to it yet, so I didn’t know, like, no one could do anything. I was like, get me the f*** out of here."
Gracious alive, those women from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have more money than they know what to do with! When they're done installing five-star spas into guest houses, purchasing 10,000 square foot vacation homes, and buying a fleet of private jets, what do they do with the extra money? Do they bathe in it? Set it on fire and laugh? Use it as toilet paper? I am just so enthralled.
All of the women on this franchise are rich beyond my wildest imagination, but given recent and past turmoil, it just goes to show that money can't buy you happiness. It also can't prevent one from having to go through awful experiences. I think I'll stay comfortably poor, a-thank-you-very-much!
Today's RHOBH news focuses on Adrienne Maloof who is going through a contentious divorce with plastic surgeon husband Paul Nassif, as well as housewife newbie Yolanda Foster who has endured several health scares in the past. None of it is pretty, and it makes me very thankful for my meager lifestyle.
Brandi Glanville certainly is a lightning rod for drama, isn't she? I'd say girl can't catch a break but all this publicity actually is a break. I mean thanks to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and all the chaos she's caused she's completely resuscitated her career.
RadarWongLine, which seemingly has a vendetta against Miss. B, recently reported that she is dating a RHOBH producer, Alex Baskin – and hoping to use it to score favoritism on the show.
According to Radar, a show insider told them: "Brandi has been boasting to her friends that she has been hooking up with Alex. Brandi says she isn't serious about the relationship, it's just a bit of fun, but that Alex has very, very serious feelings for her."
The women of 90210 will be back soon, and they are already making sure that their drama is front and center. The women just had their Season 3 premiere party, and there are already rumors flying about who is shunning who, who is speaking to whom, and who hates her cast mates. To sum it up quickly for you, none of them can stand one another.
