Fans got to know Adrienne Maloof rather intimately during her three-season run on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In addition to seeing the highs, fans got to see some of the lows, which included having cameras rolling during her split from now ex-husband, Dr. Paul Nassif. And it's sharing her divorce with the world that Adrienne cites as her biggest regret from the series.
“There are a lot of positive benefits to the show, but in terms of things that played out that I wish hadn’t — my divorce. It was very difficult, but then I look at it again as the glass half full,” she told the International Business Times. “I inspired women going through a divorce and showed them that they can get through it, so it was worth it."
All in all, Adrienne looks back fondly on her time on the series, even if she initially wasn't sure she wanted to be a Housewife. “I was hesitant, as most people are, because I was a businesswoman first. But then I saw the platform — an amazing platform — that Bravo can give your philanthropic work and your business," she said. "I looked at it as the glass half full and I went into it like that. Was it a difficult show to do? Extremely. It was also great because it allowed me to reach people and give them a voice. It was worth it.”
Adrienne officially stepped away from RHOBH after Season 3, but has popped up on the series occasionally for a cameo or two. These days she's focused on her businesses — like her jewelry line and the hangover supplement Never Too Hungover — as well as her charity work with organizations like American Humane Society and the LGBT group Hedrick-Martin Institute. “I’m doing very powerful things in my life. I’m bringing a voice to things that I think are important. These are real issues affecting our country,” she said. “I was a businesswoman before I came on [RHOBH], but it gave me a platform which I am really grateful for.”
