Does anyone else feel that watching Adrienne Maloof these days is akin to watching a slow train wreck?
It all began during the Season 2 reunion of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when she came out of the gate swinging at Lisa Vanderpump, accusing Lisa of selling stories to the tabloids. Sure, we had gotten a whiff of the crazy when she was offended about Pandora’s bachelorette party venue, getting a dog that she was sure would outshine Giggy and her outrage at Lisa’s reference to the Maloof Hoof, but the venom that oozed out of her toward Lisa at the reunion was shocking. Some even wondered was there more to the relationship between Adrienne and Lisa that would come out in the future, justifying Adrienne’s behavior. By that, I mean Adrienne still had fans. There were actually viewers that backed her and were convinced she would be exonerated from the crazy with future information.
Chef Bernie hit the scene and though the actions by an employee of Adrienne were shocking, some fans still gave her a pass.
Then Season 3 began, and it took a hot minute to realize, Adrienne was not the calm, cool, collected woman she had portrayed during Season 1.
Whether one believes Brandi Glanville acted horrendously by sharing the surrogate information or believe the information was known by many and it was no big deal, Adrienne’s rant about Brandi was off the chart horrendous and the fact that “a big fat lawsuit” was one of the first things out of her mouth was rather shocking since it was her that said “friends don’t sue friends” in Season 2.
The crazy train kept barreling at us every Monday night as Adrienne adamantly denied sending Brandi a letter or taking any legal action. Adrienne blames Brandi for the demise of her marriage and she even went as far to avoid the other housewives because she needs to stay away from the toxicity of the other women, mainly Brandi.
Adrienne returned for the tea party and it was there and then, viewers saw a manipulative side. Adrienne not only denied any legal action, she added a “shame on you” to Brandi. How in hades, she thought viewers would believe that Brandi made up the entire story to hurt Adrienne is mind-boggling, but from every angle it appears she was trying to present that her version of reality as the truth.
I don’t think there is a person that would defend Chef Bernie and his actions, but in the above video you hear Adrienne doing just that very thing. Any sane person wonders why would a chef have access to take the pictures or to have those pictures in his possession, furthermore if there were a shred of truth to the allegations, lawyers would have the pictures. They would not have been on a Facebook wall of Adrienne’s chef. What was her motivation?
Which brings us to the present. Adrienne is divorced from Paul and dating a younger man Sean Stewart. She has left the show and according to her it was her decision and for the best. Any sane person would conclude she would move forward and focus on the future. Except, she’s not.
Adrienne has decided take it a step further, in an ode to Jackpot outshining Giggy plan, she plans on opening a restaurant close to Lisa’s Villa Blanca. She has went on record giving VB two stars out of 10 and calling it a disaster. This coming from the woman who washed a chicken with hand soap and I won’t even mention her other business ventures.
Does this sound like a woman who left “RHOBH” by choice? Did anyone believe she chose to leave the show? How long will it take Adrienne to realize that attacking Lisa does not benefit her. In fact, it’s beginning to appear a bit SWF.
Another strange aspect, finding pictures of Adrienne Maloof pre-RHOBH is almost impossible. That doesn’t happen by accident. What would be her motivation to scrub the internet of pictures?
