I have to say, I really enjoyed watching this episode. It was proof that life can be hilarious, even when you don't intend for it to be funny!
So The Doctors asked Paul and I to come on to discuss how a working couple balances busy careers, marriage, children, and staying healthy. I was going to show the audience some quick and easy kickboxing moves that I use in my morning workouts as well, so I was packing a bag with workout gear. Ladies, I know this happens to you, too. You're methodically packing a suitcase to go somewhere, and at the last second your husband tries to throw in his things, right on top of everything you’ve carefully folded and ironed and cleaned. They think this makes them low maintenance. It's not like Paul doesn’t have dozens of travel bags in his closet. I swear, men!
After watching this episode I also came to the realization that just like I pack snacks in my bag for my boys, I'm going to have to pack an extra granola bar for Paul. Not only did he scavenge for food prior to our taping of The Doctors, you should have seen him this past weekend! Paul and I went to Charlotte, North Carolina where my Adrienne Maloof for Charles Jourdan shoe collection was debuting at the flagship Belk store at Southpark Mall. We arrived, and the lovely people of Belk had set up food for us because it was a three-hour event. A fan asked Paul if he’d tried the BBQ down south. Well, that was that. For the next two hours, all I heard about was BBQ. Paul wanted chicken. Paul wanted ribs. He wanted real North Carolina BBQ sauce. As we were leaving the store and racing to catch our flight, the Belk team came up with a Christmas miracle – a huge bag full of hot BBQ that kept Paul busy and quiet all the way to the airport. Have to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out to Belk and to Macy’s in Sherman Oaks, CA the next night to check out the collection. I am so appreciative of both my amazing retail partners and my fellow shoe addicts!
Vegas was so much fun! The thing I love about going is that the city actually has something for everyone. I’ve had a great time there with my kids, or as a couple, but it really does make for a fabulous girl’s only trip.
We had such a blast in the Kingpin Suite at the Palms. As you can see, no one in this group would dare rock hideous bowling shoes. Maybe that's why we had more gutter balls than anything else?
I normally love you but this whole thing with Lisa is making me reevaluate somethings. You didn't even mention Pandora's bachelorette party at all in your blog post. Just because you don't mention it, doesn't mean it didn't happen.
It's nice you treated the girls to a girls' weekend to the Palms but after the whole fiasco with Lisa, I feel it's just your attempt at one-upping her.
Adrienne, You are so right about the packing & then having a child of yours or even adult daughter asking if they can just fit something in your bag! Very funny & true watching you & Paul go through it! It was enjoyble to watch you ladies get served & treated so fabulously at the Palms. With all of the beautiful surroundings in Vegas I seriously wasn't up for any fighting! Yes, I do like scenes where you ladies are just enjoying yourselves! I really don't know if its true or not if it would have been uncomfortable for Lisa to ask you to host her party. Yet, by the looks of it, you had a much better room, VIP service, & overall better time the Palms. PS. I never have enjoyed watching Camille dance. Just like last year, she's just sort of sickening to watch & I can't quite put my finger on it, & I'm not knocking it, when I was younger I loved to dance! It seems like it's so over the top, sexy for attention, but maybe, she doesn't see it that way! I liked watching you dance, you have some good moves on the dance floor, & you are always fun & enjoyable to watch!!! Love, an Adrienne & RHWBH fan!
Eh....just not feelin' it for you anymore Adrienne. I noticed you conveniently ignored Pandora's bachlorette party which was more fun than your time at the Palm's. I hope in real life you at least wished her well....and meant it. You have seriously disappointed me this year. I'm taking it personally.
Your constant bickering with Paul is really getting annoying and old. I hope your over the whole Vegas issue as you really did not look good complaining.
Hmmm . . . No mention of the Beach Party. But, thank goodness you're finally getting of off Lisa for a blog.
Adrienne, I did laugh at Paul when he kept repeating, " I'm hungry... I gotta admit I'm hungry!" He seems so easy and likes to rib you a lot. Often times you seem frustrated by him- but he does seem like a sweet man. Your hotel looked beautiful! And, the drama free episode was enjoyable with the fun and laughter. Was entirely so very sad to see Kim suffering. She just seems as if she wouldn't hurt a fly, but she's really struggling. I do pray for her, she's likable and warm (minus the whole Brandi stuff). Hope she finds wellness. Good luck with your shoe line and I hope NY is fun!
Ok lady I hope now watching everything with Lisa and her daughter that you are not still mad at her for not making her daughter go to your hotel and really you were mad at Lisa for not staying at your hotel.... Ok I just got back from Las Vegas and your Palms hotel is way off the strip so please get over your self. Don't get me wrong I love your hotel and it's beautiful but wow.. Besides that you are a wonderful lady and I love watching you and Paul.
Adrienne, it's nice your weekend turned out so successfully for all concerned, but YOU Still Took A Dig at LISA & PANDORA! Especially LISA which is So Unfair & Unreasonable as it was Pandora's choice, Pandora's decision, And it was Offered to Both JASON & PANDORA. FOR THEIR BACHELOR & BACHLORETTE PARTY BY SOMEONE WHO HAS KNOWN PANDORA HER WHOLE LIFE ...THE OPERATIVE WORD IS: OFFERED!!! NOW THE OPERATIVE WORDS ARE: LEAVE IT ALONE AND APOLOGIZE TO LIZA FOR SO MANY UNKIND WORDS RECENTLY! BE THE ADRIENNE WE LOVED IN SEASON ONE. MUCH SUCCESS WITH YOUR SHOES! PEACE
You were extremely petty with Lisa for PANDORA'S CHOICE to have her party at The Hard Rock. Not everything in the world has to revolve around your hotel!!!!
You ROCK, Adrienne! I really adore watching you & your hubby. You two are way-too-cute! And yes, men! Mine does the same, exact thing! Keep on keeping-it-real & thank you for entertaining me every week!
Hi Adrienne- Are you planning on coming out to the Mall of America in Minnesota to show your new shoe line? There are a lot of us out here who would love to see you and your beautiful shoes!
Dear Adrienne, I'am going to treat myself to a pair of your shoes for my Christmas present. I loved the DRAMA-Free episode without Kyle, hope we see more.
Oh Adrienne, you just HAD to get equal airtime for YOUR hotel even though you were competing with a friend who was just there for her daughters bachelorette party. What part of IT WAS HER DAUGHTERS DECISION do you not get? Please bring back Adrienne of last year, she is missed.
Adrienne, you seem like the whole package! There is no arguing your business acumen, your beauty, and your success. You appear to be so genuine and talented. You definitely let us see you as a REAL spouse....you love him, are infuriated by him, are annoyed by him, and let's get back to you appear so real in this relationship! You have a blessed and beautiful like, and for whatever reason, I believe that you really appreciate and cherish what you have!
Adrienne - you've been married all these years and just realized that you need to carry snacks for your man? Come on. Be a nice wife and feed you hubby. The guy is hungry. He works hard.
Hi Adriene Think that was very sweet of you to have girl's night in Vegas for your friends. I think you should have a fans weekend in Vegas.
Nice that Brandi was so generous with the dealer and nice that you shared that; I like when women share positive things about other women:) Vegas looked like fun.
Nothing about Lisa and how beautiful Pandora was trying on wedding gowns? Or how about Giggy getting stuck in his PJ's? Oh well....
Adrianne, I think it's funny how you took some of the girls to Vegas the same weekend Lisa's daughter was having her bacholette party at Planet Hollywood.I don't understand your point about Lisa supporting your hotel.(the Palms). Every time I see you eating out I never once saw you at one of Lisa's restaurants. I don't understand you anymore.
This blog should be about the episode not about YOU. You barely talked about the show and didn't even mention Pandora's bachelorette party. Are you that insecure? Food for Thought: Learn from your mistakes!
I think Paul is great. He seems to be a great dad, successful doctor and loving husband. That said, I'd be very tempted to smother him in his sleep. He's so passive aggressive he's giving me flashbacks of my ex husband. He's charming and funny as hell, but I see him goading you at every opportunity. You ask him to put his stuff in another bag so he taunts you about your driving. You have the patience of a saint.
Love your new shoe line, I was in a wreck when I was younger and my left foot has been re-constructed which makes me unable to wear any type of heal but I am dying to buy a few pair of your shoes for my daughter and nieces as birthday or whatever gifts! I feed my shoe fetish through them since I am unable to partake lol.
The Palms is a fantastic place to stay, we brought our kids when our youngest turned 21, the suite was so lush and the service was wonderful, I have recommended it to many of my friends. I mean how can you go to Vegas and not stay at the Palms, right?
I love the group dynamic of you, Camille, Brandi and DD. I can do without Pam, the girl is just too into herself for my taste but the other 4 of you are a delight to watch. Perhaps you can whisper in productions ear about replacing Pam with DD? I hope we get to continue to watch the four of you bond even more, the other ladies always seem so desperate for attention they don't care if it is good or bad (Pam fits with them better). The four of you were ladies who were truly enjoying being with each other and it was a breath of fresh air!
Paul is so fun to watch, he actually reminds me of how my father used to be. Before he passed my father just loved to argue about anything and everything but always with good humor. Of course I enjoyed it too so I tended to do the same lol. I know some complain when the husbands are on too much but I think Paul adds to the enjoyment of the show without being obnoxious about having to be on camera...like a certain husband form NY who I will refrain from mentioning!
Blessing to you and yours' this holiday season and I hope your shoe line becomes all you hope it to be!
Why did you have your weekend at Palm springs at the same time as Pandoras bachelorette? And dont forget to be nice to Paul:)
Hi Adrienne, oh wise one :O) just realised that could be taken 2 ways --- as being wise, or being a wiseacre, or a wisen-heimer. Your'e one wise gal, that's for certain! Since I live downtown nyc, where I consider anything above 14th Street as "uptown", and anything above 34th Street "upstate"..I'll make the rare trek to see you at Lord & Taylor on Saturday. all good wishes!
Adrienne, your blog was totally silent on the experiences of Lisa, with her daughter's wedding dress-shopping and bachelorette party. Coupled with your headshot comments in this episode, it appears you are still unhappy that Lisa accepted an old family friend's invitation to host her daughter's bachelorette party in Las Vegas instead of seeking you out to ask you to host it as a way of promoting your business. As a friend, neighbor and parent, I would wish you would be happy for Lisa and her daughter rather than stewing over an imagined slight - and please note the word imagined. Lisa did not do anything to you or against you. It is not about you, or your business. Please try to be more generous toward her in your thoughts and actions. Perhaps do a mental role reversal and see if you can think of how it would be if one of your children were getting married and a dear family friend wanted to host the rehearsal dinner at a restaurant of theirs near one of Lisa's restaurants, and then Lisa came to you and asked you why you did not ask her to do it for you. It seems you may have some other issues with Lisa that are comming out in your comments. I have not heard her speaking likewise about you on camera. I would just like to see you resolve whatever conflicts you have. There may be things going on off camera that I don't see, so if there is more to the story, then please forgive me if my perception is off - I am only commenting on what I see. Best wishes to you and yours...
Love love love you!! Think you and your hubby have a great relationship, you're genuine, a good friend and most of all, a role model for young women out there proving you can be beautiful and successful while still having a family.
Adrienne, I think it was rather silly that you girls bowled with your stilettos on. Any one of you could have fallen down. Isn't that the reason why Brandi's wearing a cast on her leg for the second time? I didn't think it was nice of Brandi to make fun of your dancing. You were her hostess. Plus, she looked like a lesbian dancing with Camille. I think you should be nicer to Paul. He's such a sweetie. He's like a puppy looking for attention and love.
I was hoping you would mention something about how nice if was to see Lisa have fun at Pandora bachlorette. I guess you are still bruing over the pettiness.
It's nice to see a great, fun episode! It was also nice to have you not bashing Lisa for once, but to pretend she doesn't exist is just slightly rising above the uncharacteristic, low things you have been saying all season.
Adrienne, I like you, but really, you can't even make scrambled eggs? My 17 year old son can make scrambled eggs, and he also makes a great omelette!
You and Paul are my favorites! I laughed and laughed at the segment where Paul scavenged for food! Yes, please pack him snacks as well as making sure Bernie keeps him fed!!
I love you, Adrienne, just want to say that first. You bringing Brandi in was awesome. This deal with Lisa... not so sure.
Didn't Lisa's friend make the offer to Pandora? Isn't it Pandora's choice where she has her party? Would it not be rude to accept the man's offer and then because she realized your feelings are hurt (though you were not forthcoming with the invitation) cancel with him to appease you? I know your interviews on the show are from that time period, so you can't see Lisa telling Pandora she doesn't think she should attend the party and that is for Pandora and her friends and Pandora implores her mother to come. But your recent blogging seems to ignore all this so that you can remain annoyed and hurt at Lisa.
Come on, Adrienne... you are bigger than that. :-)
I enjoyed this episode so much. It was nice not having kyle around truing to hog ask of the attention and stirring up drama.
I honestly don't think Adrienne Maloof loves her husband. How could her man tell her that he is hungry and she carries on instead of stopping on the way to get him a quick bite to eat? She is so insensitive to her man and that turns me off. I feel sorry for him. A woman is supposed to be sensitive and kind to her man -he is your other half and she doesn't seem to care what he eats and when etc. I hope she compensates by being good in bed otherwise this poor man lives a loveless marriage.
I also feel that Adrienne over reacted on the Lisa party. The person throwing the party for her is an OLD FRIEND - that is a key word there. So Adrienne should have been understanding and supportive of that...the fact that an old friend has a competing hotel is besides the point. If she - Adrienne wanted to do the party for Pandora - she should have offered but she did not. No one asks another person to throw a party for their kids. Why would she expect Lisa to ask her to do such a thing? People offer such parties - there not asked. She could have also said - well after you are done with Planet Hollywood - come over to the Palms but she did not. I am with Lisa on this one all the way. Adrienne needs to know how these things are done in high society. People offer there not asked.

Plus I don't see you supporting Lisa in any way - going to her restaurants or even asking her what you can do for the wedding. So please spare us that drama.
Adrienne, I agree with most people and that you didn't offer The Palms to Lisa for the bacholorette. Another friend did and they took them up on their offer. If you offered first Lisa might have accepted. On the other hand The Palms is nicer than Planet Hollywood so their loss.. I think you should consider having a contest for RHOBH fans to win a stay at the Palms with air fare. It would be good PR for the show, The Palms and your shoe line.
