Adrienne Maloof

Adrienne discusses the trouble with watching Game Night play out on TV and Kim and Kyle's relationship.

on Oct 18, 20110

People often ask me what the hardest part has been about being on this show. I have to say it's the fact that long after we've experienced something, it’s there on the screen to live over again. When things are good, seeing your life in replay is fine, it's nice even. But when it's bad. . .

I mean, everyone has difficult moments, and everyone says and does things they wish they could take back. But in life you move on and hopefully decide to forgive and forget at some point. Unfortunately, in this case real-life moments are caught on camera, so even if we've moved on by now and put things behind us, it's there to experience all over again on the screen. You can't get away from a moment that might have been painful or uncharacteristic of who you really are.

Which brings me to Game Night.. .

Having not been there, I was told what had gone on, but hearing it and seeing it are two different things. I know it was a genuinely difficult evening for everyone involved -- and I can’t imagine how hard it is for both Kyle and Brandi to see everything play out again on screen right now. I know that neither one is proud of how it went down, and I'm sure it's something they both want to put behind them.

Adrienne, You seem like a terrific person but you never really seem to choose a side, even when someone is wrong. I'm all for peace but wrong is wrong and right is right, to you this doesn't seem to really matter. You just don't want friction, but you don't really ever try to right the wrong. Kyle and Kim were vicious to Brandi at game night, and if you didn't have all the details, you should have stayed out of it. I don't think there's any way you could look back at how you pushed Brandi into apologizing, now that you've seen the argument for yourself and think that you handled the situation correctly. It was just feeding the lunatic that is Kyle.

Adrienne you are the most down to earth of them all. I like you. My only suggestion is to be kinder to your husband. Don't put him on blast on camera!

I hope since the show has aired you realize SOMETIMES Brandi doesn't need to "think before she speaks". She was spot on telling those witches off.

Dear Adrienne,

I truly hope that you learned a lesson. It was so painful to watch you not given Brandi any credit at all. I know you know better next time.

I love you Adrienne, you have class and grace but I just wish you would have defended Brandi more. She apologized to Kyle and after that the games still continued on spa day with Kyle,Kim and Lisa. What in the world is wrong with them ? I agree with Brandi, Kim is on something. That women is off her rocker

Adrian, I hope you feel bad for pressuring Brandy to apologize to Kyle and Kim after you know what really happened on game night. You obviously took what Kyle told you to be the truth. But as you should know now, was NOT the truth at all! Shame on you all for ganging up on her AGAIN at your spa party. I was disappointed in you. Team Brandy! At least she is not mean, or two faced.

Adrienne you are awesome. I hope your basket ball team stays put. You are never in the middle of the drama don't know how you stay out of it. Because it does get good. Love your husband he is too funny. Stay patient with him. Men are big children.

I must be alone in this, but I think you were a bad host. You made one of your guests very uncomfortable and sided with the other. If you wanted to rectify this, you should have done it in private, BEFORE the party not during. It was like watching a high school party with the mean girls ganging up on one girl. Sorry, not a class act for me.

For a lovely lady, I have two suggestions, don't ever be rude to your husband and always walk your guests to the door.

Tonights show once again AMAZING!!!! You are the best. Always taking the high road and trying to make a mends. I find you a wonderful and courgeous woman. I hope I am a quarter of a women that you are. If we had more women in the world like you we would not have problems. You should thank your mother and father because they raised one heck of a women. A role model. That's truely what you are. I hope my daughter at 14 will see what I have been trying to teach her since birth.

I really hope you saw how Kim and Kyle behaved at game night. They were mean spirited and them pretended to be victims when called out on their behavior. A real friend would tell her girl that she was wrong. Kim and Kyle were dead wrong. BTW because Kim has some form of chemical dependency does give her the freedom to be a monster to others.

How much humiliation does Brandi have to go through for you women?! Good grief!! I would've bopped you all on the head with my crutch 2 episodes ago! You are the one friend she has, Adrienne....why were you encouraging her to apologize when you didnt know the whole story? She did NOT owe any apologies to those vile women. I hope you now see that!

You have always been the person to take the higher road. Unfortunantly, you fell short on today's show regarding Brandi's treatment. Yes, Brandi should have apologized for how she handled the situation but then you make her feel so isolated (again) because then you did not tell the 'evil sisters' to apologize for how they were treating Brandi before the fight. You should only be the 'peace maker' when you have witnessed the actual 'event'. How unfair of you to not listen to Brandi's side. I hope the girls find out how mean they were to her when they view this show. Even though I am a girl, I cannot understand why girls want to be mean to other girls for no reason.

For what i see on TV i belive your a good person, however you have to stand up for 1 side. You cant go back and forth. Brandi was attacked..kim said the negitive comment and she did mean to hurt her feelings by saying that she didnt want her on her team. Never did she mention the other woman whom she claims she wanted on her team. Brandi i see wld be a true friend. To many times there are comments behind each others back. Good luck..again I belive your a wonderful person caught in the middle.

I like that you keep it Drama Free, but Brandi had every right to defend herself to KYle & Kim. I think Kyle & Kim should stop acting like high school mean girls. Yes, Brandi's "drug" comment was harsh, but if you can't take it then don't dish it. Kyle & Kim started it and Brandi ended it. Why is Brandi the one that has to apologize??? Brandi is def the bigger person for apologizing and the sisters STILL continue to act like teenagers.

I feel for Brandi. The sisters are ganging up on Brandi. To say "I don't like her and I don't want her on my team" immediately by Kim, and Kyle giggling, set the stage. Kim asked for it. And Kim was acting strange.....Ever see or experience The Mean Girls????

Dear God, I thought this week would be better, but is wasn't. Adrienne, when are you going to support Brandy. Again, Kyle, Kim and Lisa are behaving badly. Really, such snobs. Kyle, stop laughing like a wild wild animal. Honestly, get a life.

DISAPPOINTING! In watching Oct 24th's episode...I'm disappointed in the fact that you did not stick up for Brandi! She was wrongly attacked!

I love you even though you are meant toward your hubby. Well, I can see that he deserves it sometimes. Paul oves to push your button. lol He's funny though. Love to see you both. You are a trully "Beverly Hills-ian".

I too adore you on the show for your elegance and class..but..you never seem to take a position on anything. Brandi was attacked by people you introduced her to as friends and you didn't seem to care or offer any kind of intervention with them on her behalf. These girls would never treat you this way because you are far more wealthy and socially connected then they are, but poor Brandi alone after a bitter divorce with a TV personality, is about as vulnerable as it gets. Seems to me that you should actually BE a friend to her rather than stay aloof and out of all the drama.

Adrienne, you are my favorite now, because you are more like me. LOL. Seriously, it seems everyone is..no, let's say KYLE is just trying to take all the attention, whichever way she can get it. Poor Kim does definitely seem to have a problem, but I honestly like her and hope you guys are helping her behind the scenes. Kyle needs to go. I would have told her off much worse than Brandi did. Money doesn't buy class.. Neither Kyle nor Camille have that. I thought Brandi show more that those two. Anyway, if they want new people, let's get rid of Kyle and Camille. AND DANA AND HER 25,000 SUNGLASSES. My mother taught me when you have money, you don't need to brag about it, it shows in your training, and discussing it is "vulgar". I hope next season is better.

Adrienne-

Please can I just begin by saying that I love you! You make the entire show and I love seeing how your interact with your husband! It makes me laugh.. but at the same time-- it is totally REAL. I really didn't like the episode with the game night. It made me feel like I was watching a movie about mean girls in high school. I think that the entire situation should have been handled a bit differently, but I don't blame Brandi for sticking up for herself at all! GO GIRL! However- I do feel for Kim because you can tell she is going through a rough time, but does that really constitute treating others with such disrespect? I don't know-- just a few thoughts for you!

Adrienne,

You put the C's in Calm, Cool and Collected. You summarized everything beautifully and I hope that when people look back over their footage that they grow that much more from seeing themselves they way we the viewers are seeing it.

Adrienne, You are so my favorite HW on any of the franchises. You are kind and considerate and yet get your point across without being cruel. You are clearly successful, have worked hard for your success and continue to do so. I am a good 10 years older than you, but I find you so personally inspirational. Love Love Love you. I tune into the show strictly to watch you. Please stay true to yourself and don't start playing to the cameras and digging up drama to stay on the show as so many other HWs have done on other franchises.....i.e., Alex on NY. I'm down to RHWBH only and really only watch to see you. You are terrific! I love Paul too....the banter cracks me up!

I think you are fabulous. You're fair minded and smart. However, YOUR friend Brandi was insulted, ridiculed and tortured by another friend and her whacked out sister. Now that you've seen the footage to what transpired, how can you remain firmly planted on your fence and remain neutral? If you want to continue to turn a blind eye to Kyle's hateful ways, then you may as well change your name to "Adrienne Aloof".

To all the Housewives; as much I love the Housewives series (the Glamour and all the little perks); I feel that the show has brought out more problems for the girls than what they would normally deal with! When is it enough? How much more are you willing to expose about your self or your love one’s?

Beautiful Adrienne! You, Lisa and Camille (Taylor is too vulnerable) need to have a talk with Kyle (I do think you ladies have earned the right to talk to her) and let her know that you as a group have ZERO TOLERANCE when it comes to BULLYING! You need to send her a very strong message! Her behavior from last year is the same this year! If Kyle is acting then it should not be on reality tv! You also need to let her know because she is in denial or too ashamed to admit it that Kim needs help before it is too late for Kim. Do not let another tragedy happen!

I think you are fabulous. You're also the most mature (in attitude, not chronology). That said, now that you've seen the footage of game night, how can you remain Switzerland in this? YOUR friend was belittled and driven to tears by the 2 venomous sisters. You must have noticed that K & K provoked a knee jerk reaction from Brandi (with hostess Dana cheering them on). They showed no mercy when Kim hid the crutches, leaving Brandi immobile. Kim is morally bankrupt and very effed up. Kyle spews bile at every moment. They are not worthy of your loyalty in this instance. Your neutrality may work in the business world, but you have to get off the fence and take a stand for what's right in your personal life.
