Adrienne Maloof

Adrienne knew when to "use her legs" this week, since she "nose" when to retreat.

on Dec 16, 20100

So this episode started off as a bust.

Just kidding. I'm referring of course to Paul's broken nose, courtesy of my apparently fierce four-year-old, Collin. The story is that Paul was wrestling with the boys, and Collin's foot made unfortunate contact with Paul's, well, face. Paul, being a plastic surgeon, was able to call in a favor from his colleague to have his nose repaired right away. I promise you, I was really trying not to laugh. I get that a broken nose is a serious thing. But watching my grown husband try and rationalize to me that my preschool son had done this deliberately was too much.

Speaking of too much, I still laughed watching Paul dramatizing his breathing struggles. What in the world was he doing there? It seemed like he was in a Lamaze class or something. He won't admit it, but Paul really did try and milk it for all it was worth. What is it with grown men and pouting when they are sick or injured?

So onto The Dinner: Yes, I'm capitalizing it, because it seems to deserve it, right?

I think that Camille really did intend to host a dinner where some hatchets could be buried, so to speak. Unfortunately, it ended up that some of the women felt that those hatchets were buried in their backs. The evening started off nicely, and it was a really lovely setting. I have to say that as soon as I took a sip of one of those drinks, I did worry a little about where the night might go. Two sips in, and I knew I had to be careful with them. I’m not much of a drinker to begin with and those things were strong!

Hi, You've obviously got a lot of fans on this site. I am one who has been a little disappointed in your attitude towards your husband. I understand it, because I'm the same way. But he's such a nice guy and tries so hard. Why are the nice guys so hard to treat well?

Hello Adrienne, I loved to watch your anniversary celebration with Paul. It was really funny. He was trying really hard and you were... you and he totally loved it. I did too. You are an awesome woman and he is great with you. Congratulations.

I really respect your business head and the way your family works together. The next time I go to Las Vegas I'm staying a The Palms.

Happy Holidays,

Sorry but you should do your research before making such a comment: Dr. Paul Nassif practices plastic surgery & facial surgery, as well as otolaryngology.

Learn some better googling skills :)

You are my favorite Adrienne and the most classy one of the group! Your humility and kind nature says it all for how you live and the person you truly are. You are not mean in anyway and you always approach everything with "your glass half full", I love that about you! Hopefully, you will rub off on the rest of the ladies, for you are one who definately deserve to be in Beverly Hills. As far as Camille's dinner, it was so appaulling of Allison to behave the way she did. Camille, in my opinion is more jealous of Kyle than she chooses to admit. No one with class would take something so petty and explode it the way she has done over and over again. Kyle apologized immediately upon seeing Camille again, so this whole thing should be dropped. This is so adolescent of Camille and to befriend someone in her life like that Allison person, I will never understand. You make the best and biggest impact on the show....we all adore you!

I love, love love you and your husband's relationship. He is to cute. I like how he loves you. He's the BEST husband of all the Real Housewives (NY, ATL, OC and NJ). He's too funny.

Adrianne...LOVE you and LISA!!! You guys are the calssiest women, and are the voices of reason among the women. Love it that you two have wonderful husbands who love you both so much!

P.S. Glad you got out of that marriage to Bruce Jenner. He has become a laughing stock with Kris Jenner and those daughters!

Adrienne you are a very classy women when i first started watching I thought that I would see a see a lot of spoiled catty women. But you are a refreshing breath of fresh air because you are real you are a mom,wife and business women with class. I feel that it is true what they say about old money and new. You grew up with the wealth it is not new to you so you do not feel the need to prove anything as to someone were it happened to them as an adult and they feel that they have something to prove. You handle yourself with class. When the rest with the exception of Lisa handle them selves like trailer trash. I felt the dinner party was a set up and Kyle allowed herself to be sucked in she could have left or declined the invite i would have said thank you but no thanks. So she is just as guilty as the rest.

Paul Is so dramatic, its hilarious. In regards to the dinner Lisa and yourself can hold your heads up high as being the most dignified women at Camille's dinner. I'm a new fan to the show and will be keeping a sharp eye on future episodes. Happy Holidays.

Camille had to do SOMEthing...to stop being walked all over, Yes she is a gracious hostess but she deliberately allowed her guest of honor to run the show - a guest who pretendend to be drunk and pretended to be an A.H. with the cigarette, knowing full well that her composure and blurting out would reveal the most from the guests. People simply can't keep anger bottled up, and that is why Kyle shrugged and grunted and barked - she revealed herself at this dinner. It was all staged for this purpose.

Adrienne:

I love the show. I really enjoy watching your relationship with Paul. I realized how wonderful he truly is when Tyler was making her speech at the Center and the camera showed his expression. He is truly caring and both of you are incredible with your children. May your blessings be limitless.

HOBOKEN LOVES YOU!

Adrienne is my favorite, her marriage is REALISTIC and I love that someone has finally been cast who doesn't perpetuate ignorant behavior, disrespect, and dependence on men. Adrienne seems headstrong but focused, reasonable, intelligent, and business minded and I love it! How refreshing!

Bravo, please give Ms Maloof her own show!!! I'd totally watch it. I want to know what she does and did to get where she is today in business!

So true. I don't get the admiration most seem to have for someone who sat there and said/did nothing. Adrienne only left when Taylor initiated. I believe you show true class when you stand up to a bully whether or not you are her target. Sitting silently while someone is attacked almost condones the behavior and seems weak to me.

Hey, are you serious? do a little research before you speak!.... he IS a plastic surgeon! and why would Adrienne be ashamed of that?...

So proud of our ABQ Girl! You showed true restraint and poise dealing with Camille's delusional instigator/friend and train-wreck dinner party. So happy that our home-town girl is showing the world that Albuquerque women are strong and don't need to lower themselves to petty arguments.

Adrienne, You and Lisa are my favorites! You did the right thing by staying out of it, sometimes when he crazy train derails, it is best not to get back on! Why risk your good reputation by getting into a situation that you may find yourself getting caught up in and saying things that you might regret! Love the kind of mom you appear to be and I think you and Paul make a great couple - different people balance eac other out! Best of luck and have a happy and healthy holiday xo:)

It is obvious that your husband adores you. Be nice to him. He seems like he is a little starved for positive attention. You act like he is constantly on your last nerve.

You are a class act all the way! I personally believe that while Camille SAID she wanted to bridge things with the ladies, she also had full intent to poke Kyle knowing full well she'd get a rise since Kyle reacts first & thinks later. Also, Camille set things up too well for it to be coincidental...she had her 2 pit pulls sitting directly by her as a hedge & knew Allison was unpredictable when drinking, then she just threw a couple well-placed jabs out there & watched the chaos unfold. She's quite passive aggressive in that way. And Kyle needs to learn that just because you CAN give a well-deserved tongue lashing doesn't mean you should. But kudos to you for your own consistent respectable behavior.

Silverdaisy, you said it beautifully. Ms. Maloof is the only woman of all the Housewives franchaises, that I truly admire and would be honor to meet.

Ms. Maloof, you are a beautiful woman, but above all, you are a beautiful human being. You have this peculiar, rare and unique way to communicate everything with your eyes. You don't like the cheesy, Hallmark behavior, but once in a while, you look at your husband for a second, and you express love, tenderness, closeness. Very beautiful.

You, from all the housewives, could be the most spoiled, pretentious and arrogant rich woman, and you are just the opposite. Down to earth and human.

It is refreshing to see somebody like you, specially on this kind of shows. I sincerely hope you don't get bored of Bravo, because you give quality to the show.

Thank you very much.

Girl, You handled the dinner from hell with nothing but class, however; I can't imagine how difficult it was to sit by such a ill and vicious person. You are real and know when to get involved and when to sit back as others do as they will. I truely believe Camille set the night up for disaster. She wants everyone to "believe" it was to get closer to "the girls". Some dinner host! she sat her two friends one on each side and then everyone elese. hmmm! dinner parties are for mingling. Not us against them, how insulting. Then she didnt control her guest when she was telling Kyle's friend to leave she sat back and smiled..stay away from Camille, why even bother with such negative energy-your to good for that type of negative energy.

You are the only one of this bunch that has anything going for her. You have brains, drop dead gorgeous, a successful career, and a husband and family that seem very normal in all the craziness that appears to be Beverly Hills. You are probably the only one of these ladies who truly has a dime to her name that she didn't get by marrying well. Let's just hope for Taylor that she learns how to be nicer to her husband, or she'll end up w/ nothing. He certainly deserves better than her. Anyway, I enjoy watching you. It's nice to see a strong, independent woman who can take care of herself. You are a class act. P.S. I love the way you have your wedding dress displayed in your dressing area. What a great idea, and you get to enjoy it everyday.

I was a little disappointed to see your reaction from your husband's effort for your birthday. Most people would be extremely grateful. It's clear your husband loves you, but is trying to get more out of you.

Personally, I think you don't really appreciate your hubby. He seems like a good guy who adores you, and you seem to like putting him down quite often. I am sure your little boy did not kick his daddy on purpose, but your take was plain unconcerned and demeaning. I really like you, but in this instance I felt sorry for Paul getting no sympathy at all. A broken nose is painful. Give the guy a break and a little TLC once in awhile. Otherwise, I like your style with the other housewives.

I am sorry but the story of Paul's nose was so funny to me! Only because I have a 4 yr old son that my husband plays rough with and when knees or elbows fall it can fall and hit anywhere!!!!

but I must say you are a class act and seem to be so down to earth!! I love your style!

I've never responded to a blog before in my life but had to on this one. I was channel surfing two weeks ago and ran across a repeat episode of your show. It looked very interesting. I then found out that I could look on Primetime on Demand and see previous shows which I did. I'm addicted. It's my ONE guilty pleasure. I love pretty things and always love seeing what everyone is wearing and how they're styling their hair. You are simply gorgeous. You remind me so much of my daughter!! Camille's dinner party could have been spectacular but she knew what she was doing well ahead of time. You all walked in on an ambush. There is an old saying called "Less is more". You said nothing except for "lets go" which showed nothing but elegance, class and grace. You're my favorite housewife, then Lisa because of her darling accent and then Kim. I grew up watching her on TV and in movies. Merry Christmas to you and yours !

I think somebody needs to talk to KIM about constantly derailing her sister! Kim has insecurity issues and she's always on the wrong side of an issue. I can't figure her out.... she's got issues.

I think you're the classiest housewife in the history of the franchise, and it's enjoyable to watch you sanely navigate around the different personalities. You're an example of someone who lives a successful life, in many ways.

I disagree with the popular opinion that Camille is to blame for everything. I think that the meanest person on the show is Kyle. Watching her treat her own sister so horribly in front of other people shows where her heart is. This lady is a first class instigator, very competitive and mean spirited. Camille is no match for her.

Adrienne= Amazing. I have to admit that I love all of the RH shows but Adrienne you are absolutely amazing. You are so level headed, down to earth, classy, beautiful, and just an awesome person. I just turned 21 years old and hope to someday be as successful in the business world and my person life as you! Please don't ever change!!! :)

Adrienne -

I think its obvious you & Lisa are the fans favorite housewives! I love watching the clips with you and Paul and yes he was trying to milk it for all it was worth! Can't wait for more episodes! It's been said by others and I will repeat it - you're a classy lady and a pleasure to watch!

I said it before and I’ll say it again, Ms. Adrienne… You are my FAVORITE housewife on this show… Your classic composure really spoke volumes about the kind of woman you are… of class, stature, and humility… I couldn’t believe how some of the other… “Ladies” were “behaving” And that psychic… wow… I don’t even have the words… Watching the dinner scenes last week made me realize that ignorance really does come in all forms, even amongst the wealthy.

Good for you!!!
