"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast member Paul Nassif did not drop a hint that he and his wife, Adrienne Maloof, would be separating when he was doing press in New York two weeks ago. But now the news has been confirmed, shocking friends, family and even cast mates on the hit Bravo reality show.
"They are in production right now," one show insider tells me. "They have been filming for several weeks and no one saw this coming, not even the producers. Now the cameras will be able to capture what happens next as they are still shooting."
Nassif was in New York to promote the opening of his new New York plastic surgery office and was escorted to various TV stations by a new publicist, not the company that represents his wife.
"Thank you for caring," Adrienne told me in an email. "[I’m] working on a resolution. I am devoted to my children and nothing else is as important as giving them the shelter and care that I have always made my priority! Thank you again for kindness and support and friendship."
