Paul Nassif Walks Away

Paul Nassif Walks Away by NMD

Just over a year ago, Adrienne Maloof filed for divorce against Paul Nassif.  This event was replayed months later on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, where a distraught Adrienne showed up to Lisa Vanderpump’s vow renewal party, cried on her castmates shoulders, and slipped out the back door. Paul has rebounded by focusing on work, working out (he’s slimmed down) and his children.  At least according to his public image (ie twitter) he’s moved on.

It’s hard to forget the rumors of abuse that swirled around as the couple went through what was probably the most acrimonious divorce we’ve seen to date on real housewives.  Adrienne Maloof – despite having billions of her own, strong support of her family, and training in martial arts – alleged abuse against her fun-loving husband.  The claims were bolstered by Chef Bernie – her employee/confidante who somehow obtained pictures of Adrienne sporting bruises on her back, and posted them on his facebook.

Paul Nassif sued chef Bernie – in June they were in court arguing technicalities.  Bernie’s lawyer argued that there was some sort of employment contract that precluded Paul from suing.  Paul’s lawyers argued that Paul never signed any contract, nor was the suit resulting in anything to do with Bernie’s employment.  Bernie’s threats (he was claiming he had more evidence of abuse) and libel extended well past the period of employment.  In June, it looked like a judge was going to rule in Paul’s favor and allow the suit to move forward. See link.

According to TMZ, Paul dropped the charges against Bernie a few days ago.  He hasn’t made any statements as to why, fueling speculation that he has something to hide.  I personally doubt that.  My guess is he wants to be done.  Perhaps he managed to get Bernie to sign some soft of agreement to leave him alone, because as far as I can tell Bernie is now (thankfully) silent.  I doubt anyone cares what Bernie has to say – not about Paul, Lisa Vanderpump, or Kyle Richards – all victims of his venom.  The only thing I am curious about is why Bernie is so attached to Adrienne Maloof and her children.  It’s  – in a word – creepy.

One final tidbit that came out the dropped lawsuit is that the oldest child of Adrienne and Paul is developmentally disabled – enough so that Paul argued that he attend a school that specialized in kids with serious disabilities, while Adrienne wanted to keep him in a traditional school with special programs.  Gavin’s disability was not revealed on the show, making this viewer wonder if that was part of Adrienne’s secret that formed the storyline for much of season three.  All of the Nassif kids were shown on the first season of the show – but absent seasons two and three.  The child’s disability is neither here nor there – but the couple trying to hide it is just another example of how reality TV is just a false reality that these people want to portray.

The unraveling of Adrienne Maloof was probably the most interesting thing on Beverly Hills last year – and I wish we could have seen more of it.  Anyone who thinks they can hide their secrets AND go on reality TV is a fool.


Happy Birthday Shamrockblonde

    It’s also Vesuvius Day, but I’m not building a messy volcano I’d need to clean up.

    Happy Birthday Shamrockblonde 😀 To the best giver of internet hugs around 😀

      For not just her best internet hugs around but also for her gift of getting down to brass tacks on some of the more delicate issues – Shamrockblonde – have a birthday that is happy and filled with those you love and tons of cake!

    Happy Birthday Shamrock!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. AZGirl says:

    Happy Birthday Shamrock! I totally agree NMD with your post. Paul has moved on and good for him. Adrienne treated him like dirt and we all know that he would never hurt anyone. Bernie needs to go away and Bravo need to turn their cameras off when he is around. I bet Bernie is hurting for employment because no one hires a snitch. Bernie the Snitch.
    OT: I posted a picture of Pepper on yesterday’s blog. Anyone see it?

  7. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I say good for Paul. The public already supports him and it suspicious of Bernie and his motives. A judgment would not make him any more vindicated but cost him time, energy and money.

    With whatever is going on with his son, it is best for Paul to not have to deal with any distractions.

    Truth… (something none of these heifers, including the ones with kickstands) have never understood – Truth.

    • missusmc says:

      As far as them “hiding” their kids being seen as false reality, I actually think this is the first thing Adrienne has done to earn my respect since season 1. Sounds like, all RHBH craziness aside, Paul and Adrienne actually have their priorities straight. Disabilities or not, these kids sure don’t sign up for these shows. To have a couple actually protect their kids rather than exploit them for their own gain is commendable. I, for one, am okay with that much “false reality” and wish RHONJ would follow suit.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I agree, I don’t like Jac one bit and among the things I dislike the most about her is how she is using her son’s condition to have a story line. I am perfectly okay with Adrienne sheltering her children.

      • Powell says:

        ITA too. I like that we saw them a few times S1. I like a happy medium. I don’t like to see them like NJ kids & I don’t like to not see them like Brandi’s kids.

    Happy Birthday, SB.

    Happy birthday Miss Shamrock Blonde. You share this date with my brother. Hope your day is wonderful!

    I am surprised to hear everyone thinking BH is before NY. I’m sad. I thought NY ended much earlier than the last season of BH. 😫😫😭😭
    This rotation sucks !

    I saw the NJ first look and it looks like we’re going to have a bikini/monokini modeling session again from Tre! Chuckalina or whatever — 👙👙👙yay! (V word)😬
    Something looked like Alexis bedazzled couture —- a g-string she was bringing. Barfy

    Joe Gui in his velour track suit cracks me UP! He looked like some mob guy being relocated to Arizona lol! (My Blue Heaven is one of my fave movies)

    I’m deep into the Sopranos since HBO is running marathons now and big Al hugging and going after Caro in front of the camera reminds me of Tony going after Carmela after a good score. Lol
    I don’t know HOW they (financially//// children’s spinoff?) motivated Caroline to go on this trip. I didnt think the Dons would be up for it and guess what, it’s been WEEKS since they filmed at Manzo Manor and seems they are focusing strictly on the apartment. Something askew if you ask me. 〰〰〰❓❓❓

    Oh and this IS post Jacq’s surgery. So at least that was clarified. So Jacq will have an excuse as to why not participate in anything. 😷😷😷😷
    Blah blah yech

    I’m sorry I liked Richie’s comment (typing this under the bed for protection) that “isn’t this the state where you can marry like 5 women?”) lol. 😬😬

    Have a scintillating Saturday everyone !🍷🍷🍸🍸🍻🍻🍼🍼🍮

    • not THAT Jill says:

      I get the drinks…WTF with the baby bottles?? And flan??? HAHAHAHA -enjoy your weekend girl!!!

    • Laineylainey says:

      I get the drinks and the flan. But the baby bottles?! Maybe those are for BB’s just jack and Lulu’s Angel Aiden.

      Love the sopranos. Loved Juicy’s track suit, too. Oh and those tiny bikini’s…still in awe of her figure after all those kids!! Melissa too, for that matter. I loved Gia…”I hate it. Throw it away.”

      • chismosa says:

        Lainey it reminded me of Avery hating everything Ramona was wearing season 1 of ny that just aired this week. Lol

        I LOVE Avery

      • not THAT Jill says:

        Ok now I get the bottles but WTF with the flan?????

        • TexasTart says:

          It’s just to know if you are paying attention!
          Chismosa, you are a riot, girl!

        • Laineylainey says:

          Throw caution to the wind? Eat drink and be a baby?

        • chismosa says:

          I like to put strange boxes that have nothing to do with eachother. Why not a little flan this weekend!?!?

          I happen to hate flan but in my family everyone likes it.
          Now every weekend I’m going to put ALL beverages up. Haha

          VV’s crazy box-diarrhea got to me!

          • VV says:


      • lulu says:

        No bottles for Aiden he gets his milk straight from the tap ;).

  12. chismosa says:

    Omg! The picture of Linda Rondstadt on people —- she looks like Rosie. She looks SO different !!! (Link is fishy or id post it)
    I feel bad for her 😦

  13. Laineylainey says:

    Does anyone here subscribe to People Magazine. And do you hoard them ( never throw them away?). If so, I would appreciate if you could/would send me your copy of the one with Paua Deen on the cover. I think LaineyGirl’s The Bridge ad is in that one.

    • chismosa says:

      I occasionally buy but that one I did not. So sorry!!!

      Lainey I think you can order a back copy off their website

      • Laineylainey says:

        Ok thanks. I hope I can!

        • princesspindy says:

          I get it but I don’t remember Paula Deen being on the cover…….what month? I will look around but I am a tosser, lol!!
          If I have it, it’s yours!!

              Happy birthday Shamrockblondje!
              So enjoying southern California, will hate to leave next week. We parasailed off Marina del Ray, my kids loved it. We went up 800 feet, yikes. Did Disneyland all day yesterday (my young
              cousin who works at Disney World but is from LA handed us free passes!) We apparently
              missed Posh and Becks’ family by one day, rats! Just saw the pictures, oh well. They were walking around just like a normal family, love that about them. And Santa Monica’s ThIrd Street Promenade is like a mini NYC, what great town. By the way, have recorded Million Dollar Listiing LA and should be able to blog it later, sorry I couldn’t do it sooner for anyone who watches it.

              • TexasTart says:

                No problem, glad you are having fun – parasailing is for the adventurist! WooHoo! Go Vilzvet! 😀

              • Laineylainey says:

                Wow vilzvet, so much fun!!! I, on the other hand, have been a sloth.

                • vilzvet says:

                  LOL, it’s good being a sloth sometimes! We just chilled today, walked the crazy Venice Beach boardwalk up and down, got Thai takeout for the first time ever (yummy!) and will go to Universal Studios Hollywood tomorrow. Then Tuesday is Price is Right taping!

  14. TexasTart says:

    In light of the blog content today…otherwise I wouldn’t have posted this:

    • TexasTart says:

      On second thought, I would have posted this because of how she looks in the photo…and I’ll just leave that up to your imagination 😉

  15. TexasTart says:

    PrincessPindy, good to see you here. 🙂 I was watching the big news out of San Diego and noticed they called it America’s 8th largest city. My jaw hit the floor, I had NO idea it’s that big. Going to Wikipedia now….

    • TexasTart says:

      Yep, 8th largest. Learn sun-thin new all the time. I would assume the close proximity to Mexico has something to with it. I mean it’s bigger than San Franciso.

  16. Powell says:

    Hey peeps. I hope you’re having a great Saturday.

  17. Nancy says:

    Lainey…George might have a copy as he gets it for free (as all doctors do) but it has a different
    cover than usual as it’s HIV-Related but the rest of it is the same.

  18. ladebra says:

    Lainey, check it out!

    • Laineylainey says:

      No pics of my daughter. Phooey! 😒😖😕

      • Nancy says:

        Lainey…there has to be some pictures of her from that runway show. Maybe she
        could ask Lily? It looked like a great show. 🙂

        • Laineylainey says:

          I don’t know…runway shows usu have photogs present who give their contact info to the models in case they want to buy images…but since this was being filmed for Bravo…I don’t know… I’ll ask LGirl.

  19. KTinCT says:

    Happy Birthday, Shamrockblonde 🙂

  20. Nancy says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY Shamrockblonde. I hope it’s a great one. 🙂

  21. TexasTart says:

    I am so sick of this heat!!! 108 … I need some boxes to complete this rant!

  22. Buttercream says:

    Happy Birthday Shamrockblonde! enjoy!

  23. TexasTart says:

    Looks like Joe Giudice and his siblings have the knack for producing all girls…

    • Laineylainey says:

      Haha! I love it! So many pretty girls!

    • chismosa says:

      Well it is the man who decides the sex of the child but there are NO male heirs on the Giudice line??? (Maybe not necessarily a bad thing 😉)
      Maybe only his sister/s may have son/s

      NO boys????

    • Powell says:

      Not a boy in the bunch. They’re all gorgeous. I bet the brothers will be gray before their time when the teen yrs hit. 🙂

  24. AZGirl says:

    I give up. I can’t seem to post this picture of Pepper. MTH. I not a moron I just can’t seem to get it to copy and paste off my home page.

    Happy Birthday Shamrock Blonde.

    Spot on post about Maloof/Nassif.

    Reading about the drama on RHBH makes me reconsider watching that one too. I like Lisa and although I liked Yolanda last year for the most part I can see her and Brandi amping up the drama. Brandi seems like a fairweather friend if she is tweeting about Lisa whether or not they had a falling out, she doesn’t seem to be taking Yolanda’s advice.
    Too bad since I was hoping without the hoof and Taylor it would be better but now since I still dont care for Kyle and Kim and the new drama with just Lisa left to like this may be another Bravo show off my short list. I will miss Lisa, giggy, Ken and her house though.

    • BB says:

      Perhaps we can DVR it and just skip through the parts that are not Ken, Lisa, Giggy and their house. If Yo and Brandi start something against Lisa, they may live to regret it. Lisa has a pretty large fan base and Brandi’s stock has been plummeting since last season. I guess we’ll just have to wait and “watch what happens.” Ugh, did I just type that?

    • VV says:

      I don’t think Brandi was referring to Lisa with that “unfollow” tweet. Those were harsh words. Brandi wouldn’t call Lisa a crook.

    Hi everyone! Long time no talk, i know i disappear and only show up shortly. i do try to read every day, but i fail. I am so behind. I do however like that today that come by, i see something about Beverly hills 🙂 i have not watched Real housewives in a while. I hope that Paul is just trying to be the better person and close that mess to leave it behind. He can move on and the relationship with the ex wife os amicable for the sake of the children. As much i didn’t care much for Adrianne at the end, i still felt bad for her on the break up. Then the mess began and i decided not to care. As far as not feel bad for either one.

    So the other night i was wondering about NY and that the few times i have read the blog or comments i didnt see anything about NY. Is as if i called it, because the next morning Bravo played the first season of NY. I recorded all the ones i noticed, since i was on my way out to work and i started to watch last night. I SOOOOOO I wanted to watch that season again 🙂

    I dont know if you remember that i am a Bethenny fan 🙂 i have seen comments her i rather not mention because i love this blog and everyone. I just mention that because i am a fan who want to talk about her, and whats going on with her. Her show, her new book, her situations.

    I hope everyone is doing well and that Beverly Hills and NY come soon. I will try harder to come to visit more often 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      Hi California- come back soon, ya hear !

      I too was hoping NY was back soon. I don’t get the rotation situation. So BH may be first who knows.

      I wouldn’t like ny and BH together. That’s too much for me. And two of the highest $$$$ franchises I think. We’ll see

      Have a good rest of summer ~~~~~

    • ladebra says:

      Hi Cali 😊 glad to see you. I’m a Bethenny fan too. I watched her first show – it showed here, but this time I will have to DVR also. I wonder how different it will be taping in NY. We will see soon!

    • Cartwheels says:

      You are not alone Cali. I am a fan too.
      Needless to say that in the wake of so many criminal acts committed by one of my favorite HW, I can’t find anything wrong with Bethenny except that her marriage didn’t work for one reason or another. She has never claim to be perfect so I never held her to those standards and the main reason why she is my favorite is because she beat Bravo at their game and took advantage of her opportunity to provide for her and her daughter for the rest of her life. I admire strong women, women who dare to go for what they really want and who thrive in a world that is so competitive.
      I am so sad by the developments in RHNJ that I try not to read and post too much but RHBH is looking interesting and maybe this year we will have a blonds (Yolanda and Brandi) against brunettes (Lisa and Kyle) battle royale?

      I sure hope so 🙂

  28. Boobah says:

    Happy Birthday, Shamrockblonde!!!!! I hope you had a great birthday!

  29. Vegas Chick says:

    Happy Birthday, Shamrockblonde! Hope that you had a gorgeous day!

    So, what’s the scoop with NY and BH… when do they start? Anyone know? #2lazy2look 🙂

    Some things never change. The Forgetable PamDana tweeted:

    @Danawilkey: My Rolex #75000 #rhobh smile on my face #priceless #pricedropping lol

    • TexasTart says:

      “My Rolex” Really?! Then why is it not on your wrist?! #anyonecanshop

    • Powell says:

      I don’t ever want anything to happen to PamDana but she obviously just drinks and shops and doesn’t watch the news cause there are crooks whose full-time job is to cruise the internet looking for people to rob. So if she thinks #pricedropping is funny she could have a rude awakening one of these days.
