Watching all the family scenes on this season of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills makes me nostalgic for one of my all-time favorite Housewife hubbies–Paul Nassif. The scenes between Paul and then-wife Adrienne Maloof were often entertaining–and uncomfortable–as they bickered over everything from child-rearing to romance to how to order food in a restaurant. All that arguing eventually led to an acrimonious split, with the couple announcing their divorce in 2012.
Since that time, Paul and Adrienne have mended fences and are now on good terms. Paul, of course, has gone on to star on Botched, with former Real Housewives of Orange County hubby Terry Dubrow. And now Paul has some good news in the romance department to announce–he was recently engaged!
The details of Paul’s engagement were revealed in an US Weekly article. Paul popped the question to girlfriend Brittany Pattakos on June 1. He shared his engagement news a few days later in an Instagram video clip, taken by @shotbyrichvisuals. Paul exclaims in the caption, “This weekend I found out I get to spend the rest of my life with my soul mate. 6.1.19. #SheSaidYes.” Which of course, means that Paul’s proposal was accepted and he is now an engaged man.
Sorry ladies, Paul is officially off the market! In the video clip, Paul and Brittany are seen together on a boat, with Paul stopping by a bridge with a hanging sign that says, “Brittany, will you marry me?” You have to give Paul props-he actually put some thought into the proposal. Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Heather Dubrow commented on Paul’s Instagram post, saying, “So happy for you!”

Brittany showed off her engagement ring on Instagram the same day as Paul’s post, gushing, “Best day of my life! I get to marry my best friend!” Which, when you think about it, is probably the best way any two people can start a marriage. Brittany will also become a stepmother to Paul’s three sons with Adrienne. No word yet on when Paul, who just turned 57 and Brittany, who is in her late twenties, will be tying the knot.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans with good memories might recollect that Paul’s efforts to be romantic with former wife Adrienne were usually rebuffed–and often led to a fight. With either Adrienne or Paul left angry, hurt or frustrated. Now, it looks like Paul has finally met someone who appreciates his romantic gestures. Congrats to the happy couple!
