How exactly did Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof find herself greeting an ambulance when Charlie Sheen fell ill yesterday? Well, Adrienne herself called us to set the record straight on how the whole thing unfolded.
It's been widely reported that Sheen called Adrienne and her husband, Paul Nassif, Thursday morning shortly after suffering intense abdominal pain. Adrienne tells us that she and Paul were just starting their day when the call for help came from Sheen's house.
"Paul told them to call 911, then he called 911 himself to make sure help was on the way," Adrienne says. The couple then met the ambulance when it arrived at the hospital, and Paul even accompanied his friend to the ER. However, Adrienne notes that her surgeon husband was there as a neighbor and a friend, and didn't actually treat Sheen.
So how did Adrienne and Paul wind up at the other end of the phone on Thursday? Adrienne told us the couple have been friends with Sheen since he moved in to a home just a few minutes down the road from their Beverly Hills estate. "We've been friends for six or seven years. Charlie and Brooke (Mueller) got married at our place," Adrienne told us.
But the couple's aid didn't end when Sheen arrived at the ER. “My husband and I encouraged Charlie Sheen to go into rehab, and he checked himself in today."
