It feels a bit surreal to me that we've already finished another season!
This last episode felt like a really good note to end on. After all of the drama and heartache that we have experienced this past year, it was wonderful to close on a mostly positive note. At the time of Pandora's wedding most of us were busy with personal and professional projects, so it was nice to get together and see everyone looking so lovely and refreshed. I was in the middle of finalizing the design of my shoe line which was to reach retailers in a few weeks, and I was really ready to just have a good time. Paul and I danced for hours, and at the end I did wish I'd had that car to drive me back home across the street! It was a beautiful evening, and I wish Pandora and Jason all the best as they start their lives together.
Speaking of starting their lives, I'm also hoping for the best for Taylor and her daughter as they move forward. While she was ready to move on from her marriage, Russell's suicide was obviously still a shock to her, and to everyone else. When we got together at Kyle's, I was so glad that she made the effort to come. It's wonderful to have friends when times are good, but it's essential to have them when times are rough. I think the get-together lifted Taylor's spirits somewhat. That was one of our best afternoons as a group, and I'm glad you got to see us at a time when we could celebrate everyone’s accomplishments.
What a total disappointment about Paul and Adrienne. I guess we were all fools watching what we thought the American Dream, a couple who loved each other and worked as a great team in marriage and careers. Fake Show Housewives of Beverly Hills, never watch again.
Adrienne, I only watch theshow because of you and the Richard sisters. Even though I just watched 3 times I really liked you and your husband he is just so funny and down to earth. As for Lisa V. I thought she was the mother of one of you girls in the show and I couldn't understand why she hung out with and had issues with you younger girls. I was delighted someone stood up to her snide, smirky and mean spirited remarks. Now for the Maloof shoes please make so real cute kitten heels for those of us who are on the go and on our feet 8 hours a day.
Adrienne, Why didn't you approach Lisa when you were told by a "media" person that Lisa was selling stories? Why would you believe someone from the "media" over Lisa? You have always seemed so down to erth and logic to me.
I just don't understand your approach with Lisa. Unless there are other issued we aren't privy to.
I just started watching this season,....possibly a few episodes in,....I never watch reality, but this show caught my attention. I adore Adrienne most,...There is less drama w/ her, less bullsh**,....and I honestly get a kick out of how she and Paul work as a couple. She may be rich beyond what I could ever imagine,..but I am thinking she is just like any of us women in a relationship. She is the most "realistic" relationship wise in my eyes,...just my opinion. All the women are great in their own ways,...each have good spots in their hearts. Thanks for keeping my attention and enjoying the season. If I lived in BH,...I'd love to have Adrienne as a friend. Hope there is a season 3! :))
I just want to know...what does Lisa do to better the world? carry Jiggy in her hands to accessorize herself? Does something for Kim when she it attacked? Shows compassion in actions…not worlds? Or just being 'classy' in aristocratic way. I cannot believe Americans are so into the royalty that Lisa's self-absorbed, human-usage-for-toys(CEDRIC) is not noticed? May be Americans want their own royalty, so the kiss the ground 'snobby-pumps' are walking on?
Lisa makes shoe line. Adrienne makes shoe line. So Lisa throws a dig at Adrienne shoe line to undermine Adrienne efforts. How conniving is that? Yet everybody says how classy Lisa is...give me a break. It is classy to support Kim (Adrienne and Paul). It is not classy to joke about Kim's issues(Lisa). Lisa is smirky and calculating. Adrienne is compassionate and supportive. Lisa uses strategic weapon to strike Under the pretense of ‘joking’. She throws arrows into the core of her possible competitors Covering it as ‘it is just funny’. What is funny about letting your dog drink from a glass At your friend’s house dinner party? To show disrespect?. Lisa knows the etiquette. She did it to make a point ‘This is Adrienne house, she is not royalty..; so, let Put animals into the table ware that humans are using’. You cannot find a more clever way to insult the hostess then that.
Adrienne, What happened to you this year or have you always been like this? Are you so thin-skinned that you didn't see the humor in the "Maloof-Hoof" remark? Get real. And attacking Lisa on the reunion show was so catty... maybe you're another Richards sister in disguise? Take a class on tact & kindness & while we're at it ... be nicer to your husband...he deserves better.
This is someone's daughter, someone's sister, someone's wife and someone's MOM you are saying such hurtful things about! I understand feeling bothered by an event from the TV personalities you love to watch but please take Paul and his business, their kids and there proud sense of who they are who they came from and the natural innocents that goes along with being children and thinking your parents are heroes. Let's not forget that this business so many of you claim to no longer support also supports these children and several other Maloof family members. Too much anger and hate for a few hours of taping a reality show. In the big scheme of things, she and Lisa will I'm sure make up and all will be well between them. The damage that's left are the hurtful words on these blogs for her kids to read someday. Let's be honest moms and wives blogging on here, please tell me that all the stress that goes along in being a business woman, a mother and a wife isn't defines by a few hours of taping, a few word or a few arguments. Whatever her reason, she was wrong in how she treated Lisa but once she does apologize I hope that you be able to let go of all these hateful feelings and remember that she is much more than a TV personality! She's someone's mother, wife, sister and daughter! If anything, don't do that to the innocent people who love her more than themselves!
I totally agree with most o the comments, your behaviour during the reunion was really disappointing to put it mildly. Slandering another member of the cast without proof was not very smart. Sorry to see your true colors Adrienne you were one of my favorites, but not any more.
Still dissappointed in you and imagine that I still will be after the airing of the reunion episodes 2 and 3. You did not address any of the comments on your blog with your latest on Feb. 3. You should aspire to have the amount of class that Lisa does in her little finger. I actually feel sorry for you, because it is evident that you were popular early in the show, but that you fell into the pot that most of the characters eventually do in these "reality" shows. That is too bad, I thought you really were a strong woman, not a vindictive little child.
I think you've hurt your business and reputation way more than Lisa ever could with her play on words.
Hello Adrienne, Oh, my! I was one of those watching that was absolutely hysterical watching (and listening!!) to Paul in what we call the "fa**ing" room after you've had a colonoscopy!!! I've had two (or three?) since my older brother had colon cancer several years ago. He is doing well and has been in remission for several years now so I had to have that lovely test sooner than I would have liked. I had several tiny polyps in the first test so I was very happy that I had it done. The next time I had one tiny polyp, I believe ... so this test is so very important to have ... but, oh my gosh, Paul was really full of a lot of "AIR", wasn't he??!! LOL ... !!! I didn't know they pump air in you in order to do this test. I just know I was wheeled into the "fa**ing" room after and expected to ... well you know! That whole scene had me in hysterics though so please pass that on to Paul!! Take care and see you next season! ~ JoAnn xo to you both!
You have GOT to be kidding me! Adrienne, I had hoped you would be a stand-up lady and apologize to Lisa PUBLICALLY - guess I was sadly mistaken ~ Poor Paul~such a wonderful man!
by now ...it's been 4 days since the reunion 1 aired..February 3rd ...you may be getting the clue about your Personal integrity problems and hopefully want to learn and grow from this .
I just have a comment to make about the nasty way you treat your husband Paul . It makes me cringe to see the faces you make and condescending remarks you make behind his back and to his face . Just your general demeanor concerning Paul comes off very sad. You have 3 boys together and please realize that they see and sense this too. It is clear that he turns you off , but we don't need to know that and paul doesn't need the world to know . Please consider stopping this behavior for your kids sake, That is their father and it just makes you look bad . No upside to it .
Adrienne, you intimated in this reunion episode that Lisa's "Maloof Hoof" comment had a negative connotation toward the shoe line you worked so hard to build. Yet, at the last reunion you said if you let Paul work on your face and he was mad at you he might set your eyes crooked. You were making "side-seat driver" negative comments as you watched him do a procedure on Taylor as if he was not doing it correctly. In a rerun episode that aired last night, you said it would be nice if Paul were given Valium at home so he would be quiet, and also said he was full of hot air in more ways than one. You embarrassed your dinner guests and the viewers by the way you were talking to him at the table in the first episode of this season. Many times you talk down to or in a dismissive way toward him. Should he also take all these comments as attacks and truths? Do you think your comments promote him as a competent professional? You disrespected Lisa abominably ithis episode, and called her integrity in question in such a dispicable way. And the "new money" comment you made as to who discusses what they pay for suggests you have an impression that it is "those people" don't know how to be discreet about thier wealth. Yet those with discretionary money [new or old] are the ones who buy Maloof goods and services. I would say you have done more to hurt your own businesses than anyone else by your own behavior. Everyone else here has already said everything else I was thinking. Except this: is what Brandi said in a Jan. 30 interview correct, that all but Lisa wrer asked - and all but Brandi and Camille did - get together before the reunion to discuss reunion strategy, particularly toward Lisa? I read it from someone who printed what she heard from Brandi, so I'm investigating.
Lighten up! I think Lisa is really funny. Upset about her making fun of your DOG! OMG! Maloof Hoof! I thought that was great!
What you did to her on the reunion was 10x worse! Did you see the Radar Online said they did not pay her? Where is your blog saying "sorry to Lisa". She deserves it especially since she did apoligize for calling your dog a name and Maloof hoof! I think you looked really bad on the reunion show - I used to think you were the level headed one.
You really proved that money can't buy class. If I were Lisa, I wouldn't have anything to do you ever again.
Adrienne, What in the world happened to you at the reunion? Last season, you seemed so reasonable, level headed and like the mediator of the group. Suddenly, you morphed into Judge Judy and the executioner. I must have left the room when you were exalted to Supreme Being. You were on the attack against Lisa for trivial grievances that had little weight. Every time she attempted to either defend herself or apologize, you lunged at her like a preying mountain cat. It was bizarre behavior to see. My best conclusion was the seating of the principals on the couch. You were stuck with Vile Kyle and Tantrum-Toting Taylor. Maybe, you caught their crazed diseased minds by sitting too close to them..???...
My husband and i go every year to vegas, past 6 years, was thinking about Palms.... but ARIA all the way !!!
Wow! Adrienne I was very disappointed in your behavior at the reunion. I used to admire your way of dealing with people, but this one changed my mind. Maybe you owe Lisa an apology. You should know that you can not always believe what others say unless you have solid proof.
For someone so concerned about publicity for your businesses, your behaviour on the reunion is probably the worst anyone could ask for. I will never go to the Palms as long as you are associated with it. I used to think you were one of the good ones, but have lost ALL respect for you. I will now be changing the chanel when you are on, as I've been doing with Taylor all season. Oh yeah, you can kick your crackpot to the curb with your Maloof hoof...LOL
You sure get your feelings hurt a lot! Hoof is not a slight, it was a funny play on words. Lisa's daughter's party - you made it about yourself, so silly.
You folks spend a lot of time getting offended by stupid petty things. Lighten up already!!!
You said hurtfurl things to Lisa and owe her an apology. You did this because you wish you were Lisa. She is by far the #1 Housewife! You on the other hand suck! You should be ashamed of the way you acted in Season 2. Trying to keep up with the jones and in the end couldn't do it so you got nasty and attacked Lisa. You are nothing but white trash!
Innuendo is no substitute for facts. You should have done a more thorough job verifying rumors before accusing Lisa of taking money for releasing stories. This backfired on you, making your challenge snarky. You are better than that.
Just wondering if you have offered a sincere apology to Lisa, as Radar execs say Lisa has never sold a story. YOUR chef has- but true to her word, not Lisa. Shameful accusation.
Adrienne has always had a competitive about everything. I guess we never knew how much. I think being the only female in the family, she had to do a lot of proving herself. But in friendship people are to support each other. If she harbor such bad feelings she should have opted out of Pandora's wedding. She would not accept that her Chef could have sold a story when Lisa said it, but she would not believe her friend Lisa. Now why would that happen; because she was u[set with Lisa's appeal. Not to go point by point, but she has lost a lot of points with me. She should leave, because she has now negatively effect her brand name.
Adrienne I really hope you blog about the reunion show. I would really love to know why you were so offended by Lisa calling your dog Crackpot and yet when you were watching the clip of Bernie telling his staff to step on Giggy you were laughing? Why is it okay for Bernie to say something like that but not for Lisa to say a joke name?
I would also love to know why you seem to value hearsay over the word of your friend. When challenged by Lisa on her supposed comments about Bernie's food you said 'I wasn't there, that's what he told me' - is that a valid defense? Surely that just shows what little regard you have for Lisa as a friend that you would be so quick to doubt her and if you did 'investigate' and hear it from someone else why didn't you just speak with her about it? You seem to want to be portrayed as a strong confident business person but really this all seems very high-school to me.
I think it was fairly obvious from the reunion show that you and Kyle had discussed all of these issues beforehand - Kyle's silence spoke a thousand words.
I truly believed that you planned to attack Lisa at the reunion. Lisa is a good person and she won't go after you and your cook bernie for defamation. What you did to Lisa I hope it never happen to you.
Dear Adrienne, you are a good friend, a strong and inteligent business housewife please don't let competition rule you. Too much competition between friends starts to destroy the friendship.
ADRIENNE-The Competitor A little bit of competition is healthy and to be expected. An appropriate amount of competition will motivate and stimulate. But too much competition between friends starts to destroy the friendship. One of the primary ingredients in a positive friendship is that one or both friends feel that they can be "themselves" and that they don't have to put on airs or impress one another. Competition implies a race in which one wins and the other loses; those conditions are quite the opposite of what someone typically expects in a positive friendship, especially a close or best one. Friends who are competitors probably compete in every area of their lives and find it difficult or impossible to ease up even when it comes to close or best friends. They may compete at work, at school, and even in community affairs. They may be in competition with their spouses or romantic partners, or even with their parents or their children, The Competitor may find this distinctive personality trait hard or impossible to change or eradicate. You can help the situation, however, by trying to avoid setting up overly competitive situations. For instance, if you share about a success in your personal life or career, especially if you ease into bragging, you may be unwittingly setting off an "I'll show you" reaction. Helping to heighten the Competitor's awareness about this tendency might help her to deal with this proclivity. If you do want to share something that you think will propel her into a "me too" reaction, you could preface your comments with, "Let me just share something with you without it having anything to do with you, okay?"The onus for changing the Competitor's behavior, however, is on her; developing a better self-image will diminish her need to compete with everything you say or do. If you wish to stay friends with the Competitor, you may have to be willing to listen to her brags and boasts far more often than you can share your own.
Hi Adrienne, I can't believe how much heat you are getting from people. That's not fair! You were only saying what you were told and Camille was your witness. It wasn't like you were creating a story. I was super proud of you when you told Lisa that you equally value your employees and friends. Are people dumb or stupid not to realize that your responds speaks valumes of how wonderful you are. You are a great person and you are still part of my favorite ones! Too bad that Lisa all the people that had made comments on your blog did not understand that you were coming from a good place by offering the Palms to celebrate Pandoras bachellorette. I personally would be offend it if my friend did not acknowledge me frst before making arrangements. At least Lisa should of havethe courtesy to tell you what she or her daughter had plan. You
Lisa schooled you personally and professionally. First, Lisa schooled you in what a friendship is, when she slammed you over the Radaronline issue....THEN, Lisa schooled professionally when she pointed out how you deal with your employees. Personal: Never accuse someone if you don't have the facts. Profession: Lisa sent her employee home when it was apparent there was a problem. You encouraged your employee to show as much disrespect as possible...YIKES!! Personal...always amendable...Professional...unfortunately you have sent out a message to ALL of your employees that it's acceptable within your brand to be inhospitable.
Adrienne,your are very smart lady,as you know most casinos have water fountain in front of casinos ,what that mean want money come in,to tell Lisa you are sad,she not use your casino that mean fire,is not good.
You're a class act! Don't let viewers comments get you down. You're the only housewife that is consistantley stable. Everyone else goes in and out of CRAZY modes. You are always the level headed one, and kind to all. And, whether friend or chef, why would you treat them any different? Because of a friends "status" you chef is automatically wrong???????????? The world would be a better place with more women like you!
Lisa mentioned that Berney is friends with Cedric. It has been painful for me to watch the abuse Cedric inflicted on Lisa. It seems Berney is piling on Lisa as well and has your full support. How awful to watch Lisa's supposed 'friend' (you) allowing the abuse of Lisa to continue. How could you be so welcoming to Cedric at SUR??? And you think LISA is not a loyal friend?? You should never have shown your face at SUR, you didn't deserve to be there. But no, you were even there with Berney. I don't think it is a coincidence that Berney and Cedric were at SUR and Lisa was not expecting either one. You fit in with them perfectly and all three of you are cunning, backstabbing, abusive snakes to Lisa.
Adrienne, my friends and I watched and actually discussed your unreasonable accusations at the reunion , after our little spa day . WHY ? Why are u so insecure lately ? what happend to the self assured , classy lady we've all admired ? ! Bringing up the bachelorette party ad nauseum --after Lisa explained the entire situation several times ?! Her calling your adorable Jackpot that silly name -- so what ?! Rise above it ! That's Lisa's sense of humor , which you seemed to appreciate previously.
By the way ; tell us, you didn't get rid of sweet , beautiful Visco ? It was simply heartwarming to observe how much Visco loves Jackpot's company , and how much Paul loves that dog ! It's easy to see what a good, sweet , loyal pet Visco is ! He even let Jackpot 'hang' on to his tail - he's very sweet and kind natured . We could tell you don't care for him as much as Paul does -- I hope it's not because he's a bigger dog ! Your home's interior, can surely accomodate his size ;) you seemed really annoyed at his being inside your house , please be kind to all of your 'furry kids' :) ! Lastly, your Paul seems like such a nice man , who loves you alot! You seem rather impatient with him as well -- good luck to you always! Sadly ,we've all had a change of mind about you and your sense of fairness. You portrayed a lack of class , and ended up being a terrible 'friend' to Lisa at the reunion!
Kyle did exactly what we had expected ; her behavior was predictable , immature and vindictive; always seeking the spot light ; so annoying ! I am sure some tears are yet to follow ;)
Brandi was such fun this season ! What a great addition and a breath of fresh air -- we all hope she 'll become a permanent HW, hopefully to replace Taylor ? ( who needs help to work on herself and time away from ANY show )
Our daughter and her friends stay at your beautiful hotel every time they go to Las Vegas during her visits from Italy. I had her watch the reunion ( pt1) and a few, brief moments of the other episodes . She too was shocked, and disappointed regarding your insecure behavior towards Lisa , your frequent annoyance with your husband , and your obvious impatience towards Visco. Please remember to deal in the truth always - and not in unsubstantiated gossip about your 'friend' Lisa -- which did prove to be false, right?! Your chef only caused trouble to have camera time , you do know that , right ? Why else would he feel comfortable enough with Lisa to go to 'Sur's opening party? :)
Lastly, after that beautiful wedding , we knew BH was still our very favorite series ; despite Taylor's disturbing, dramatic behavior and fabrications ,( her scenes were so very difficult to watch , same as EVERY season ) Kyle's constant, unnecessary crying , poor Kim's addiction issues ( so glad she sought help ) and Dana's distasteful bragging :( Unfortunately, the reunion put a real damper on the season ; even cutie pie Andy made his questioning one sided in part one , ( we do forgive him :) we hope he makes Taylor, especially , and Dana just go away .. Otherwise it will no longer be fun to watch you gorgeous ladies !
It's upsetting to see the negative responses you're receiving from the reunion show. No judgement here- we all have rough days. I do hope you'll get a chance to redeem yourself because I do believe the way you carried yourself during the reunion show was out of character for you.
All the best
You were one of my favorite housewives, I thought you were drama free and the peacemaker of the group that's used her best judgement when and if you got involved but clearly I was duped!! First of all Bernie was dead wrong for making public comments about Lisa, he is a employee at the end of the day and should know his place (in the kitchen) and if Lisa disgusts him that much why would he show up at her opening of sur? Do your employees usually frequent and socialize with you outside of work? . If Lisa was your friend you would have come to her and ask her if she said those things, that's what grown women do! You've been bitter since the bachelorette party (yes it shows) but to believe others without giving Lisa a chance to defend herself is dead wrong but it showed your character. Btw..your stylist at the reunion should be fired!!!!
surely there are other chefs in Beverly Hills. The reunion replays of Bernie show him to be a horribly horribly toxic human being. Anyone who has had help in the house knows that a paid employee who brings a terrible vibe must go. In your position, you could be giving a bright young sparky Professionally Behaved chef an amazing start. Do it. Then, re-prioritize your life. Love in the home first, then friends' well-being and integrity, then work, and THEN radar on-line.
Hey I get what you were saying in many regards. I think Lisa is condescending toward you. She puts down your business but smiles and disregards that it could be hurtful or personal to you. That's condescending and disrespectful if she can't even sincerely apologize when she finds out how it makes you feel.
Regarding the stories, that didn't turn out well. It sounds like she has relationships with them and I respect that she didn't lie about those, admitting she talks with ROL and TMZ. I do get how that might make you ladies question her further when outlets tell you ladies straight that she sells them stories. That's irresponsible and you should not have taken it as far as you did, but you also had reason to question her.
You're still my favorite housewife and Paul is rational and funny. You guys are great.
Adrienne, The day I allow the hired help to cross the line and comment on a friend of mine so negatively is the day he is fired. He didn't belong at Lisa's SUR opening - he belongs in your kitchen making your meals. Take better care of your home. I am surprised because you seem so strong. This doesn't fit, somehow.
It seemed as though you made a lot of accusations about lisa based on hearsay. You believed what other people told you that she said rather than basing anything on what you heard from Lisa herself. I was surprised by that because you seem like such a wise businesswoman who would be above doing that to your own friend.
I lost total respect for you after your attack on Lisa - you allowed your employee to speak bad about her and seemed genuinely jealous of her all season. I highly doubt that Lisa sold a story to anyone despite what you heard - how tacky and classless not to believe your friend. Lisa is funny and classy. Enough with the procedures already - you are starting to look masculine.
If you would go after someone, get your stories straight before you do...if you don't have any strong evidence then only stupid people would do which you had done... You need to look into yourself before brave someone check your intelligence. FYI: in they season, your husband had made much better comments than you had said, maybe you can learn from him, perhaps!
Professionalism would dictate that if your employee was discussing something heard in your home, that he/she would be reprimanded if not fired. The fact that you allowed it, seemingly condoned it, and then confronted your friend about it on national television was absolutely ridiculous behavior on your part. I would be horrified if my employee went on Facebook the way that Bernie did, and made all the nasty comments that he did and posted my business with my friends. If I were you, I would prepare myself for a tell-all story in the future, by Mr. Guzman, regarding your life at home with your family. You and your husband should be appalled, not defending his behavior. We, the viewers, only see snippets of your lives, and therefore, cannot judge adequately everyone's character. However, as intelligent (?) women, you should be able to assess what viewer reaction will be if you attack someone. It appears that there is a lot of manipulation and calculating going on by most of the housewives, but apparently you, Kyle and Taylor cannot play chess as well as Lisa. It was refreshing that you and Paul were calling out Taylor on her lies and manipulation, and then you ruined it at the reunion, by going after Lisa for hearsay. I too, would have been as offended as Lisa was, if someone accused me of something that was not true. You continually told her, "I don't believe you, or I don't believe that". In essence, you were then calling her a liar. Not at all attractive or tactful. As far as the "Maloof Hoof" comment, she was being cute by trying to rhyme. While you were offended, it did not come across to the viewer as this vicious comment. Finally, with regard to the bachelorette party being held at your casino, we all know that you wanted publicity. That being the case, you should have offered your casino as the venue right after Pandora became engaged. If a friend was willing to host or especially comp something, I would never ask them too, but would graciously accept if they offered. If Lisa had come to you, especially expecting the weekend to be comped, you would have been talking about her for her great expectations. Anyone with any class or pride, would never presume that a friend would be willing to host something without an offer having come from the friend. If you really wanted the publicity, you should have been all over it from the get go. Since Kyle compared Lisa's friendship to chess, seems like some of you need a lot of chess lessons. Now, unfortunately, you will be doing damage control after your despictable pettiness and behavior. Good luck.
