I don't think any marriage counselor ever would advise you to go on a reality show if you and your spouse were having issues…especially not on one of the housewives franchises. The Bravo freight train is riddled with divorce. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that of all the cities, Real Housewives of New Jersey is the only series that hasn't had a resulting divorce…and we all saw how well those ladies' marriages looked last night, right?
Another day, another saga in the Adrienne Maloof/Paul Nassif divorce. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple as been dragging each other through the mud since their separation was made public. After allegations of verbal and physical abuse against each other, Adrienne accused Paul of being violent towards their children. An emergency hearing was held, and Adrienne was awarded temporary sole custody of the pair's sons.
This week, the Department of Children and Family Services found that the claims of abuse against the children were unfounded, and Paul went to court to regain visitation with his three boys. Yesterday, Paul was awarded supervised visitation of his children. Um…didn't he just get cleared? Sounds like there could be more to the story and the flying accusations!
Are you looking to move? Want a new house? Do you have $26 million burning a hole in your pocket? If so, I've got the perfect place for you in Beverly Hills! Unless you've been living under a rock, in which case you probably don't care for a mansion in L.A.'s illustrious zip code, you've heard that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Adrienne Maloof is divorcing her plastic surgeon husband Paul Nassif.
The couple was notorious for their constant bickering on the show, but now they have taken their feuding to an entirely different level. Both sides have alleged abuse and bad parenting, and I feel like their attorneys are constantly filing emergency orders with the court. I would have never foreseen this couple splitting up, but I certainly couldn't have predicted how nasty it would be! Now, the pair has put their family home on the market…so I am guessing that any chance of a reconciliation is slim to none.
They're rich, they're fabulous – wait, no that's only some of them. Anyway Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns! In its third season Bravo welcomes new Housewives and brings back some of the old favorites. Some we want to see back (Lisa, Lisa, Lisa!) and some… well yeah, we're a little less excited about.
So, the Real Housewives of Miami are back, and this season they have apparently been informed that they are actually part of the housewives franchise and not some random reality show that is formatted around cooking parties. Baby steps.
While four new women join the fray, the "veterans" are out numbered…unless you count Mama Elsa twice, and, let's face it, she is so awesome she deserves the extra credit. Her daughter, Marysol Patton, appears to maintain her status as the voice of reason, although sadly she's missing one hot, foreign, much younger husband. What a difference a year makes! However, regardless of what is going on in Marysol's personal life, she still seems to have a stable head on her shoulders. It's a wonder she was even chosen by Bravo given her propensity to avoid drama. Who am I kidding? She totally got this gig because Andy Cohen wanted Elsa. End of story.
Aaaahhh… love. Enough to warm the cold, cold heart of this soulless reality TV blogger. In celebration of well, some people's happiness, we've decided to put together a list of our favorite reality TV couples. Trust me – that's a lot harder to do than putting together a list of the couples we can't stand! Stay tuned for that one.
