There is so much speculation surrounding Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif's divorce.  Rumors have been swirling and custody battles have been waged.  We've been reading all about it thanks to the Internet…and we're about to get to watch it when the new season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs.

Having to go through such a personal and private matter in such a public forum is no doubt extremely difficult.  Not to mention, they both have to go through it the first time and then re-watch it with the rest of the world.  I'll just stay behind my computer…I'd rather not have to deal with all of that!


Adrienne recently spoke to People at the premiere party for Season 3.  Of her nasty divorce, she admits, "It's very difficult. I'm not made of stone. I'm a real person. It's always difficult when your life is played out in the public."

Although verbal and physical abuse allegations have been rampant from both sides, Adrienne tells the site that she is so grateful for what she has.  She explains, "There are many women in this world who have it much more stressful than I do. It's always a pleasure to be part of the Bravo team. It's difficult at times, but I'm here because it's my job. There are benefits and there are negatives."

The reality star remains upbeat and focused on her kids, as well as her business endeavors.  She asserts, "I'm a very strong woman. I'll get through it."

Speaking of the premiere party, Radar Online is reporting that Paul was nowhere to be found at the shindig…at Adrienne's request.  A source claims, “Adrienne did not want Paul at the party and she made sure that he knew that he was not invited. She even had extra security in case Paul tried to crash the party.”

The insider adds, “Bravo was filming at the party and Adrienne was afraid that Paul would show up and argue with her and she didn’t want him to embarrass her.”

I'd like to think this piece of news is exaggerated and the couple has found a way to move forward with some sense of civility.  Given the way Paul portrayed himself on the show, I can hardly see him crashing a party to cause drama when cameras were rolling, but hey, I've certainly been wrong before!
