Exclusive – Poor Little Rich Girl – Adrienne’s Childhood Nasty due to Family Feud and Other Housewives Gossip Roundup by NoMoreDrama
Poor little rich girl, Adrienne Maloof. Our own NMH‘s husband played tennis with Adrienne in high school. This is what he told her (in the comments from yesterday):
“During first season, my MIL passed a tabloid to my husband because it had a pic of the RHOBH on it because he played tennis in high school during Adrienne’s time and he was acquainted with her. He didn’t even recognize her and mentioned she had a very big nose at that time. He said he had felt sorry for because there was a lot of nasty in-fighting in the Maloof family well known in Albuquerque at the time so when I’ve mentioned lately of all her nastiness now, he wasn’t too surprised.”
“I wish I had more to tell, but don’t other than what he mentioned in passing a couple of years ago. He felt sorry for her because she came across as nice and shy but he wasn’t that friendly with her, only was acquainted because they were all in the tennis leagues together. He said city knowledge was that her father and his brother (her uncle) had major issues and the 2 sides of the family fought. He said there was a particular match where she had 2 play her cousin, and it got nasty because they were very competitive. That’s when he said he felt sorry for her because of this.
That’s all I’ve got for you other than one day we passed by her old family home and he pointed it out because he painted the house next door while working in his grandfather’s painting business back then.”
Her life isn’t much better today. Adrienne Maloof
gets fired quits the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and then ends her fake relationship with Rod Steward’s son all in a short span. Could it be that she didn’t need the fake relationship to make her seem interesting if she was already gone from the show? Especially since Rod Steward’s wife said no to joining the show. Maybe this will be the last we hear of Adrienne. Who know, a little more plastic surgery and she could make herself unrecognizable again. More on the split from US Weekly.
Greggy Bennett from the Real Housewives of New Jersey has moved to San Francisco. He’s been there one week, and written a blog about his adventures, narrated by clips of Kim Richards. If you want a laugh, check it out.
Dang. I thought Karent Sierra of the Real Housewives of Miami had a little more money than the average broke housewife, considering she was a dentist. Turns out she’s got two homes in foreclosure according to this article. I suppose in this economy it can happen to anyone if they bought at the wrong time. I WANT THIS RECESSION TO END. Rant over.
Meanwhile castmate Lisa Hochstein has won approval to demolish her 88-year old Star Island mega-mansion and build a new mega-mansion in it’s place. After months of fighting with preservationists that were concerned about the loss of historic homes in Miami Beach, the City’s Design Review Board approved the Hochstein’s plans. Although there seemed to be general agreement that the loss of historic homes was concerning, the Board didn’t feel it right to “change the rules” on the Hochsteins. Hopefully they’ll exhibit a bit of taste. What the heck am I saying. I saw their last house. You can read more here.
Yolanda Foster has been very public about her battle with Lyme disease. When did she know something was wrong? According to a tweet, we watched the moment last night – “❤This defining moment with Taylor made me realize something was really wrong with me, I felt so sick and could barely speak.
Lisa Vanderpump is going to face some stiff competition on Dancing with the Stars this season, with my girl Aly Raisman on the show as well. Aly is a member of the Fab Five and won two Gold Medals at the Olympics last summer – team and on the floor. So watch out Lisa! That said, doesn’t Lisa look cute?
So Brandi Glanville and Gerard Butler DID Hook Up (Allegedly) by BB
I’m not sure if it was part of the Take the Fifth game or not, but remember when Brandi Glanville was asked by Andy Cohen on an episode of WWHL who her most famous hook-up was and she blurted out the name Gerard Butler? Shortly after, Gerard was quoted as saying he didn’t even know who Brandi Glanville was. I always tended to believe Brandi on this one. On E! News last night the record was set straight – allegedly. Gerard was on the Howard Stern show, and Howard brought the subject up with him. Seems Gerard does remember meeting her at a party and they had a good time, but he told Howard when he was approached by the paparazzi about what Brandi said on WWHL he had no idea who they were talking about because, (1) he never knew her last name; and (2) he didn’t know she was a celebrity. Well, let’s face it, Brandi isn’t what I would consider a “celebrity” in the context of Gerard Butler’s type of celebrity . But what a difference a second season on RHOBH and a tell-all book makes. At least Gerard has since remembered his encouter with Brandi – allegedly.
RHOBH “No Business Like Clothes Business” by BB
We rejoin the ladies (and Ken and Maurice) at the end of their Paris trip. They are taking a river cruise. They are all having a nice dinner when Yolanda presents Brandi with a pair of designer shoes. While Brandi is showing them off, Maurice points out the bridge where he and Kyle left the lock. Lisa realizes maybe she needs to put a little romance back into her marriage and mentions the vow renewal Ken wants to have. Kim tells them all thanks for making it such a great grip and Brandi tells Kim her favorite part of Paris was spending time with her. That makes Kim feel good. Brandi’s second favorite part of the trip is the shoes!
Back in Beverly Hills, Marisa visits Kyle. They talk about losing Marisa’s father in law, Richard right before she and Dean were to leave for Paris. Marisa’s mother in law wants to sell the house and Marisa suggests she and Maurice list it together. Kyle talks about Paris and the opening of her new store. Kyle mentions Kim’s off behavior on the trip. Kyle looks forward to the day she no longer has to worry about Kim. That day may never come.
Lisa is trying to get the Gigster to walk, but he’s not having it. Kevin Lee, the wedding planner who put Pandora’s wedding together, shows up to discuss a house warming party with Lisa. Kevin never does anything for less than $1Mil. Lisa wants something intimate for around 60 or so people. Ken shows up and wants to also have a vow renewal and Lisa agrees to it although she doesn’t think it’s necessary.
Yolanda and David have a photo shoot for a Japanese magazine. Yolanda is very decisive about the clothes she wants to wear for the shoot. She ends up looking stunning and David doesn’t look too bad either.
The boutique Kyle By Alene Too, is a business venture between Kyle and her partners, Debbie Weisman and Lizzy Schwartz, who started the Alene Too franchise in Boca Raton, FL. They all get together to choose some fashion pieces for the store opening. Kyle admits she doesn’t know what she’s doing and she’s on a learning curve. I wonder what her partners think about Kyle’s style choices as she’s going through the clothes and picking out things for “her” store. One of them points out she’s choosing looks that are similar, like caftan looking things. Who is Kyle trying to attract as a customer – Bea Arthur of Golden Girls fame? Sounds like Lizzie may be questioning Kyle’s fashion sense a little. Is Kyle really in on the major decisions with this new store or is she more the “face” of the store and going through the motions? I wonder how much input Kyle will have in the day-to-day operations of the store. Will she be hiring and firing? Will she be there every day to open and close? I very much doubt that. Since these two women are not from LA, I can see why they would need someone who “knows” Beverly Hills and has the connections there to help make their new store a success. I really don’t know, but I’m guessing maybe Kyle is the front-person for the store and the most important business decisions are made by others.
The most hideous part of tonight’s episode is Taylor meeting up with Pam-Dana, who apparently just went through a bad breakup. Pam-Dana has been sitting in something because she has a spot on the back-side part of her dress. Pam-Dana is obviously drunk and makes some off-color jokes about Lisa and Ken. She states she drinks a lot and screws a lot and she’s OK with it. Pam-Dana proclaims her hatred of all things Brandi by saying Brandi was right even though she hates the bitch. She thinks Brandi is a low life and is not “of par” with their group. Pam-Dana is under the mistaken illusion she is still part of the RHOBH group. This coming from a person sitting there so drunk she can hardly light her cigarette. She warns Taylor to watch her back with all the women. Pam-Dana is the first person I would go to for advice about how to handle the women on RHOBH – NOT!
Kyle is getting ready for her store opening and models two outfits from her store for Maurice. They are pretty, but neither really flatter Kyle’s figure. I personally like the first, shorter dress better. Kyle also looks like she’s added a “bump-it” to her hair. She’s nervous about her opening and talks to Kim on the phone to make sure she’s coming, even though she probably won’t be on time. She mentions sister Kathy won’t be able to be there. Now little Portia is styling and adorable. As soon as Kyle shows up at her store, she wants to make changes to reflect her “taste.” I say leave things alone and she’ll probably be better off.
At the opening, Yolanda and Taylor have a discussion about why Taylor has a problem with Yolanda. It’s an awkward discussion, especially from Yolanda’s side, but they seem to come to some type of agreement of how to proceed from there. Boils down to Taylor hearing bad things about David from her good friend who is David’s ex. Taylor agrees to give David a chance and not judge him on just what her good friend has told her.
Everyone, including Adrienne, shows up for Kyle’s opening. Even Fayke, the “store designer” is there. Camille, who seems to have no purpose in the group anymore, shows up and they talk about not having seen Adrienne lately. When Adrienne arrives, she and Brandi make sure their paths do not cross. I’m not sure where Adrienne gets the idea that Brandi wants to make a scene at Kyle’s party because there is certainly no indication of that.
Why Kim and Kyle have to have their heart to heart talk about Kim’s behavior in Paris right then and there, I have no clue. I have had bad reactions to medications in the past and I have thrown that medicine away, never to take it again. Kim is trying to make Kyle believe she was taking the wrong medication, one she couldn’t take in the past, in Paris instead of her “water” pill. I’m not buying it and I’m tired of these conversations about Kim and her sobriety or lack of it. On the one hand, Kyle says she knows Kim was on something if not alcohol. On the other hand Kyle thinks Kim’s explanation about taking the wrong medication makes perfect sense. You’d think after all these years dealing with Kimberly, Kyle would have a little more insight about things.
Brandi and Yolanda are looking through the clothes in Kyle’s store and Yolanda thinks some of them are vintage instead of new. Yolanda chooses a $3,000 dress for a store employee to hold for her. How much does a decent horse cost? Cut down on the clothes, shoe gifts for Brandi and artwork, and maybe she could afford to buy her daughter that second horse she claims she can’t afford. Just sayin’.
Can’t wait until next week when Fayke accuses Brandi of breaking up Adrienne’s and Paul’s marriage. Should be entertaining.
