Adrienne Maloof

There are certain things men just should not do, so Adrienne Maloof remind you of them for good measure.

on Jan 14, 20110

There were a lot of really touching moments in this episode, moments that reflected family dynamics, rites of passage, change, and self-discovery. There was also a really important lesson for all of us in this episode.

Ladies, don't ever, EVER take your husband shopping for clothes with you.

It's funny how we think it's a good idea, or at least a manageable one. We tell ourselves that this time will be different; this time will be a bonding experience-–or at least a fun one.

Right.

Or rather, wrong.

Mauricio's mother spoke with Paul and I about approaching things as a team, and I agree with that philosophy for some experiences. When it comes to shopping however, not so much. Is there a husband handbook somewhere that encourages them to suggest the clearance rack every time without fail? I think I'm benching Paul on the next shopping trip. Commit too many fouls and you foul right out of the game, right?

I lOVE the Beverly Hills Housewives, and yes, I lOVE Adrienne too! I just watched the premiere of the Vancouver Housewives and they can't compare to the beauty, the class, the morals of the Beverly Hills Housewives. The Vancouver Housewives are so botoxed and "fillered", they look oddly weird. To think, this trashy lot of women "caught" wealthy men and now live like queens is so demeaning to those of us who are working hard and are respectful to others. I find nothing redeeming in most of the Vancouver Housewives. Mary seems to be the nicest and what she is doing with a "friend" like Jody -- well, go figure! Anyway, The Beverly Hills Housewives rule and so does Adrienne!

You are very beautiful, classy, and nice for being very rich. I would love to have a relationship like you and your husband because Ilove to banter and only did it with my most fun bosses. I wish I could be like you.

Hi Adrienne,

I love your presence on the show--classy, intelligent and strong! Also, I'd like to say that with all respect to Kyle's husband's mother, the way she was talking to you and your husband about your marriage rang very wrong to me. It is my understanding that most therapists do not give directives and say things like "you need to stop this, or you need to do this, or you always do this...etc" because very early on they are taught to approach problems by utilizing 'motivational interviewing' techniques because it encourages the client to come to their own conclusions about not only 'solving' the problem but identifying the problem as well--she was a bit too quick to tell you 'exactly' what the problem was etc. I would continue searching for therapists and always make sure to check fully their credentials, as no doubt you would anyway--just sayin' :-).

Your are a common scence person and I am impressed that living a high life like you do you are still grounded. You and Paul have an attitutde toward marriage that my husband and I have benefited from. Thanks for being so real and for walking the walk not only the talk. We discuss alot, but my husband thinks we argue and fight, I say discuss. Hope to see you in the next season. Watching you has brought my husband and I closer together and something in common to watch.

Adrienne, I truly believe you are everyone's favorite housewife and it has nothing to do with your money (I'm sure you are the richest.) You score a 10 in every catagory. Thank you so much for coming to Kim's defense in the limo. Thank you for always acting like a lady. You have class!

You probably have "more money" then the others but you said in the beginning intro of the show money doesn't define you and stayed true to that throughout the nonsense. Sad- money can do so much good and help people that really need it to make a difference in this world... I think you have a gentle - kind, "old soul". Keep bickering- IT WORKS!

Adrienne, I love that you are down to earth, honest and compassionate. I think the fact that Paul's gift of a German Shephard, was made so happy. I think had he give you diamonds, you would not have been so happy. You are a good person and I love your ways and you on the show.

Only the best to you and Paul!

I like you Adrienne. Your the real deal. You may be rich but you are richer in kindness, sense and love. It's good to actually have one housewife on any of these shows portray a lovely human being and a woman as a role model as a whole. Hope you stay with the show...........you would be greatly missed. PS. I live near Sac and would love to go to a game with you. Heather

I absolutely love you on this show! You are so real and fabulous! I admire you being yourself no matter who is around...My marriage is alot like yours and seeing it on tv makes me feel like it's not a terrible thing. Your husband is great too! You made the show balanced and sophicated in a way the other ladies couldn't this time around. The thing I learned by watching you is to Embrace your faults and keep it moving!

Love seeing you play peacemaker! So diplomatic, so reasonable... you are a pleasure to watch. The banter between you and your husband cracks me up! Love living vicariously through all of you ladies and seeing the savvy, mature, HARD WORKING business woman behind the glitz and glamour! Thank you!!

I wish to add my CONGRATULATIONS to you on positively contributing to RHOBH in significant ways (by just being YOU!...how easy is that!) & my ADMIRATION of you for setting the right example to all women, on how to behave professionally, as a friend, and as a wife and mother. I have 2 daughters in 2 different colleges, each of whom watch the show with girls in their dorms. Both D & P separately concurred, unsolicited by me, that ADRIENNE MALOOF IS THEIR FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE. WOW!! Was I relieved..and oddly enough, I admit, proud of their choice. I felt like I did something right in raising them to gravitate towards the smart, compassionate, beautiful and drama-free girls. And they did!

Hey, you seem like a nice lady, but I doubt your marriage is a happy one. Constant bickering isn't normal, isn't healthy and willl eventually burn you out possibly. Compatability is important. You constantly make excuses for your marriage and over-rationalize. This is a sign that something isn't right...

Great job! You have raised the bar on how women should treat each other. I work in a very cut throat environment and it really hurts when you don't get the support you need the women around you. Take care!

I adore you in many ways Adrienne! Nevertheless, I feel as if you're husband yearns for your love and affection but you don't give him much love. When Andy, the interviewer asked the question if there was some kind of disdain towards him, I asked myself the same question. While bickering is a normalcy in many functional relationships, what balances the bickering is affection and I question if you genuinely love him. I can tell that your husband loves you and craves your attention by complaining about a broken nose, which wasn't really painful I think. I think he just wanted you to show him some love! I feel so sorry for these husbands on the show. Seemingly these husbands are miserable and they just try to put their best faces on.

You are a class act, a true friend to all of the housewives and there for everyone. I will look forward to seeing you next season.

Just wanted to tell you, I enjoy watching you & Peter! It is so funny. You two remind me of my husband & me and we've been married for over forty years!! My husband has a very dry sense of humor. I do get pissed at him every now & then. Hope to see you ladies back for another season!!

Hi, Adrienne,

Personally, I think bickering is really flirting for you and Paul. ;-)

Also, I hope that next year they show more of you as a businesswoman. We are all so impressed with how you carry yourself in personal situations; I think women could learn a lot from how you handle yourself professionally. Peace!

ADRIENNE you are by far one of my favorite BHHW. At the beginning of the show Liza and Kyle started out as my favorite, but as she show went on and I began to see the (REAL HOUSEWIVES Personality) I have to say that I end up completely disliking Kyle, I lost all respect for her; she is very cruel toward others and seems to keep getting away with it (pretty sad). By the end of the show YOU and Liza turn out to be my favorite housewives of Beverly Hills! Hope to see you on the next episode.

Adrienne, while you are the most caring of them all there were a lot of times you could have assisted Kim. She needed a lot more that just that episode at Taylor's party. Kim did not start that attack in any way shape or form. You did try to explain to Kyle that Kim was weaker and needed to be listened too. But, at Camille's dinner party when Taylor attack her once again with the filthy language no one came to her defense. Also at the reunion Kim needed someone. Camille stood up for Kim and called it like it was. Kyle bullies her sister. I believe that you are what you say you are. You have worked and earned your way and that is great. I also believe that you have money but that is not who you are are. There are some people in the world that are encouragers and you are that kind of person. Weak people need people like you to speak for them. Kim clearly has been beaten up by life, maybe some bad choices (which for the most of us have made) and other things have happen that was not in her control. I have to say that Kyle has just about destroyed any self respect that Kim could possibly feel for herself and her sister. Kyle constantly reminds Kim by her non approving attitude what she thinks of her . That is so sad. Also, on a personal note, thank you for showing self control and not using bad language. The one thing I have noticed about some of the housewifes, the language is just not accountable. You have small children and they will hear it soon enough. I think that you and your husband are so cute and funny and I enjoy watching you. Thanks

Adrienne,

You are the total package. You're beautiful, smart, wealthy and have character. I am so touched by the display of your genuiness, honesty and just being a good person throughout the show. You are woman enough not to take sides and to stand up for what's right. I almost cried when I say how compassionate you were toward's Kim. She needed your support because it was clear that Kyle, Lisa and Taylor were gunning to expose and talk about her "problem". I think that I would have a drinking problem if I had Kyle for a sister. In the first reunion show, Taylor said something to Kyle regarding if they were going to bring up her (Kim) problem or something to that effect. I think that it had been discussed between Kyle, Taylor and Lisa to put it out there that Kim has a drinking problem. In their minds, it would make it look like they had reason to treat Kim the way they did and that Kim is difficult. It clearly backfired. One would think that if you have a sister or friend with a problem you would not try to make yourself look good at their expense. I think Kyle backed out of saying anything else to berat Kim at the reunion show, but Lisa was persistent and kept bringing it up. She was clearly wrong for that. Lisa was so persistent on exposing Kim's skeletons until she forgot that she has some of her own. I'm sure that we will hear more about Lisa than she wants us to know. For Lisa, karma is Cederic.

I don't get the connection with Lisa and Kyle. I guess opposites do attract. We got to see what a bully Kyle is and how insensitive she is towards her sister and Camille. Camille really bent over backwards to be forward and take ownership in her unfortunate dealings with Kyle. Kyle on the other hand, kept throwing darts at Camille to make herself look blameless. Taylor is keeping the lie going about Kim starting with her when it was clear that Taylor started in on Kim. One thing that shed light on Lisa's frame of mind and maybe the reason why she feels the way she does about Kyle is that she is being blindsided to the truth again as she was with Cedric. It is obvious that she is not a good judge of character if she allowed this grown boy to live in her home for over a year and at times defended his behavior. It blows my mind that she did not realize that he was using her. In saying that, I hope that she wakes up and see Kyle for who she is and I think that will happen pretty quickly if Kyle continues this friendship with Taylor. Lisa is definitely against it. She plays it down as much as she can, but she has issues with Kyle's new best friend.

I think that Bravo should give you and Paul your own show. The two of you are more interesting, loving and what America needs to see more of. Even if you bicker, you keep it real. I would love to see you interact with your mom, brothers and see Dr. Paul doing his thing in his office and the operating room. You have so much more to offer with a show of your own. If you don't come back for Season II, I will not be watching the show anymore. It will be a waste of time.

Many blessings to you and your family.

You rock Adrienne! Stay above the fray and continue to just be yourself. You are a great example to the Drama Queens (Kyle and Taylor)! Love you and Lisa and Kim!

You are an amazing woman. I watched this season and really liked how at all times your carried yourself as a real woman. A kind, compassionate woman, and always looking out for the weak ( Kim) you are a wonderful mother I can see that when you deal with the cattiness of the woman, you retain your dignity when the other's show their ignorance. It has been a great joy to watch you and you husband..and love the way you two are..it's all good~~ God Bless and keep being who you are

I can't decide if I like you on the show or not. You don't need the money so I don't know why you want to be a part of "women behaving badly". Then again you are a great example of how a "lady" should behave and there aren't many classy ladies on TV anymore. Unfortunately bad behavior gets headlines and ratings. You are a good role model so maybe you should stay on.

Thanks for being the reason button on the show...the objective one, the voice of sanity. Phew! Please keep it up - your rep is at stake along with everything you've worked hard to accomplish. It was wise words you said to the sisters...blood will always be thicker than water (or wannabes). Looking forward to seeing more of you and Paul.

dear adrienne just wanted to say that i love you are such a beautifull strong educated and wise lady if some give the choise what i wanted to look would be you inside and out you are not witty in the mean way that Lisa is your honesty does not hurt like Lisas you are the only true lady in that show I do not think that being in the next seasn woul rub off the stupidity of the other women except Kim. she is a genuine and good person, I like camille too with the experience she is going trough she is becoming less airhead but i dont think she is a bad person she never said anything bad about the others except about kyle but she look for it for being such an abnoxious mean woman an taylor is a special nut case I looking forward to see you in the next season send you my blessing for your beautifull family

I happen to ADORE YOUR minimally and significantly styled real GOLDEN STRANDS of hair. PUH-Leeeeeeeeze, Isaac Mizrahi. It is a signature strand, not unlike a single or couple lower low-lights or brighter high-lights in a head of hair. It is done all the time, and probably many of the women you dress have it in some form of color compatible to their highlights. I do. And if I could afford the gold, I would easily opt for that "color", like Adrienne!

Adrienne, you really are a beautiful person in every way, and you are one of my favorites. Lisa is the other. As a viewer it extremely difficult to go easy on Kyle. She may very well be a "sweet" person, however, it is obvious that she picks and chooses who she is going to be "sweet" to. She is sweet to everyone BUT her sister, and that is the one person she should be sweet to the most. In my travels I have found that people who pick and choose who they are going to be nice to tend to be disgenuine and insincere sychophants. The fact that Kyle consistently chooses NOT to be sweet to her own sister says A LOT about who she really is. Especially since Kim has a drinking problem which really requires the support, sensitivity, strength and patience from loving, caring family. Kyle has shown the viewing audience time and time again that she does not provide those things to her sister and therefore, she deserves every ounce of negative feedback she gets. Until Kyle genuinely changes her mentality toward her sister, the negative feedback will just keep right on coming, and there isn't anything that anyone can say in her defense that will change it.

Adrienne,

I think you're an awesome lady! It is a pleasure watching the way you handle yourself, in the craziest of situations. Also, your family is very cute and your relationship with Paul is entertaining!!! You make a good couple and should be inspiring for any people that enter your lives!!!! I look forward to seeing you next season!!!

I liked watching you and your husband on the show. I wished they showed more of you. I liked how you stayed neutral and level-headed. PLEASE don't turn into a real housewive "diva" You're very classy,respectable, and humble about your life. Hope you come back.

I know that this sounds strange coming from a happily married woman who just had a child (at 43) - but I had to tell you that you have such a beautiful face - I love to watch your expressions - especially with your husband -- and trust me, almost ALL of America understands your marriage - it completely reminds me of my own - and I sometimes get similar critiques from my friends and family -- BUT we have been together for 16 years and it's how we communicate - and let's face it - marriage is great, but there is work and compromises - especially when children are involved - AND it is hard to shop with your husband BECAUSE at the end of the day -- it doesn't matter how much money you have (by the way you never flaunt that either which I respect) -- men just don't understand how much it costs to look good - hope to see you next season - you are a beautiful woman, but you were raised to think more like a man (I can relate to this as well) -- that is why you don't get caught up in the nonsense - it's not your style! Also, LOVE what you did with your wedding dress - very clever - great idea!

Wow...I feel like I should critize you just to be fair to the other housewives. But.....can't seem to think of one thing that you have said or done to deserve any! Looks like you and your hubby are one of the few that can handle the fame and fortune! Best wishes to your husband's nose!!

I feel sorry for you Taylor

I LOVE YOU ADRIENNE. You are real and an inspiration to all who've seen you on BHHW. Others should take lessons. In addition, I am now reassured that the very rich in Beverly Hills do have hearts (not just the Bill Gates of the world).

Not only are you classy, but also very level headed! And I have to say that I do laugh at the bickering between you and Paul. I think you two make a fun couple, Paul seems so likeable! And I love that you two seem so unpretentious even with your millions!

Adreinne, Don't kid yourself. Your Husband know more about what looks good on you than you give credit for. I have been giving my beautiful wife clothing advice for 25 years. She has never ignored my advice out right. She has disagreed but like with me and my wife... trust your husband's taste... remember he married you, so he did show he has good taste at least once!

Adrienne, you are not what one expects but what one hopes a wealthy BH housewife is like. I thought you would be a snob and unrelatable but find you to be very down to earth, very relatable, classy and thank goodness, a very good hearted person. Your relationship with your husband is adorable. I also appreciate how you try to be the voice of reason when situations get out of hand and how you refuse to engage in gossip or arguments. You are my favorite housewife and your husband is also my favorite husband. He is too cute... physically and otherwise.

Mrs. Adrienne, You maybe the realest woman on the show. I like how you work and still have time to be a good wife, mother and friend. I don't know what would have happened to the women if you weren't on the show. I think they all look up to you in a way. I hope you return for a second season. I know you will keep everybody together and keep the drama down. You are a perfect role model for women and I know your children won’t be disappointed when they see how well behaved their mother was on the show. I have a lot of respect for you keep it up you look good girl.

Adrienne I just love you and Paul. You two remind me so much of me and my husband. We love each other dearly and have been married 10 years and "bicker" at times. But we both know it's just for fun and it never gets mean. Your a class act and I was so happy to see you be there for Kim during the fiasco that was Taylor's birthday party. You seem to be very caring and down to earth. I wish you and your family all the very best and hope to see you again next season!

I would love to hang out with Kyle and Lisa. But you're the one that I would be ecstatic to have as an FFL - friend for life. You are truly wise and compassionate and such a sweetheart.

You set a great example for us all. And you're probably the richest one of all on top of that !!! Rich with class, style and people skills. Wow!! Much respect -- Not for your money, for YOU!!

I agree with you. Adrienne touched my heart in several episodes. She is right, she might have money but it definitely is not who she is. I would say that Adrienne is my favorite. She's beautiful inside and out. I like the other housewives but I don't see the caring side that Adrienne has. Don't change a think Adrienne! We love u
