Adrienne Maloof

Adrienne lets us know who what she learned from her parents helped her to make the tough decisions in this episode.

on Sep 19, 20110

When I was a kid, I was always in awe of how my parents built their businesses. One thing I remember them saying all the time is that it's so important to put the right people in the right place and then let them do their job, because that is the most effective way to accomplish what needs to be done.

With that in mind, as Taylor’s friends, we care about her, encourage her, and support her in finding the strength she needs to deal with some of the tough things she has been going through. I am a huge believer in asking for help if it's needed, and I really wanted her to know that it's courageous to admit when you are struggling.

Adrienne, you are very down to earth for someone who has everything (Beauty, money, class & etc). You are such an inspiration to watch. You are really a peace maker. I hope some of the housewives (especially the ones from Atlanta - you know who you are) will learn from you. I admire you so much that I always watch the repeats of the show. Thanks for being on the show. Also, Paul is a nice guy. You complement each other.

Adrienne, you are hands down my favorite housewife!! I despise pretentiousness and for someone that could have easily opted for that route, you instead epitomize depth, a quality character and kindness to all. Youre cute as a bug too and the banter between you and your husband reminds me of me and my boyfriend! I love it!! Its real and its fun! Just like you.... Smiles, Robyn

Best Wishes with the Team. I too am a part of a family business and know the expectations, responsibility, hard work, dedication and diplomacy that comes with the territory. You are my favorite housewife. You have class and kindness.

Paul is a very cool guy- go easy on him. It is apparent that he loves you very much. As they say, it takes two to tango!

i really liked you last year and really enjoy your husband. I don't understand how you can be patient and kind and understanding with your castmates but not your husband. I don't get it.

Adrienne,I think in light of the globalization of sourcing and long distance transport of food with past outbreaks of mad cow,bird flu and active concern for rise of salmonella,ecoli,listeria...You will have the last laugh on Kyle & Lisa nasty snickering about washing poultry.The mean girl duo Kyle&Kim have a point about use of hand soap instead of very mild dish detergent,but,thourough washing is good food hygiene. My own MIL was a exquisite cook and home maker. MIL used very dilute 1/8tsp bleach in gal H2O to wash then gave poultry a really good rinse then patted the poultry ,you could eat off her floors and her food was safe and delicious. How about championing the slow food movement of locally sourced fresh foods and PSA about safe food prep.

My husband and I bicker back and forth and we have been married thirty years. Doctors get treated like gods in the operating room, so I like to bring him back to earth when he is at home. I know you love him very much and he knows it, too. On the other hand there is something wrong with Kim and I don't mean alcohol. If you guys are gonna walk the walk and talk the talk, especially in light of what happened to Russell, then let's not shove this under the rug. It was incredibly, incredibly rude of her not to be on time for the plane, to babble incessently and not to even watch the game. I don't think you should have invited this particular housewife to this important game. And if you all really care, open your eyes and get her drug tested before something bad happens to her. She is on something speedy. She is a trainwreck.

I'm watching a midnight showing of your trip to Sacramento. I have tears in my eyes. LMAO. Kim wonders why the Sac fans are so upset the team is moving. You tell her, "well people don't like change" Kim retorts while shaking her head,"I dont like change either, I like the same restuarants, I dont even like new people" I have to say this is the least uptight I have ever seen Kim and you know why? I think she's comfortable with you. She knows you'll provide chauffeurs and private jets,YOU'LL BE KIND, she'll be able to cut one up and be herself !! Um yea. You were so patient and so kind. Like a pre-school teacher taking a student to the last game of the season. Paul was getting very irritated (rightfully so)especially when she brought up a stranger wearing hot pink LV such trivial conversation.Being the owner of an NBA team youre there to watch your team. My kid played CYO I was glued to his games. What was strange she had a driver why was she late? Hmm. Oh well it was nice of you and Paul to be so patient.

Adrienne,

I think you are the prettiest and classiest housewive on all the RH shows. They way you handled the situation of Kim R. It showed up a glimpse of how a classy person (born with it )ysou are. I can't wait to watch you this season. Acually it will be the only reason for watch RHOBH. Bravo is really getting it wrong with all the women back bitting comments and catty behavior. I feel most of us will watch without all that junk. I sorry for your difficult discison with moving the team. I could see how it really was tearing your heart out. I believe your fans realize your agonizing decision will take time. Keep what your doing,(fighting with Paul) lol. and most of all "Keeping it Classy" New name for your show instead of kardasians' it could be keeping it classy with adrienne and paul.

You are by far my favorite on the show Adrienne. I truly respect your intelligence and ambition. I also can relate to what you and Paul have as a bickering couple. It is hard for a female as successful and alfa as yourself to control everything that one says all the time, specially to those whom one feels so comfortable with. However, as much of a lion as you may be, it is important that you make sure not to emasculate your husband, because he is the man and as one he needs to feel strong and important. He as an instinct to support you, take car of you and protect you. He needs to feel like the bread winner, and it is hard to feel this way when the woman you love is stronger and more successful than most men on earth. Give him credit throughout the day and make sure you treat him as your equal through understanding and patience.

Adrienne, Seems like everyone is so concerned about the way you treat Paul...ignore them! You both seem happy and in love! People shouldn't comment on other people's marriages. Keep shinning!

I applaud you for going to that game and doing your normal routine. I totally understood where you were coming from. Your not a lady whos going to run from controversy thats for sure. I think your about one of the strongest ladies on this show, you sit back listen - dont preach, but do give advice when asked or when its needed, which is how Ive learned how to live my life.

Good luck

For the most part, I really like you. You're pretty, smart, and seem to be a good business woman. I don think, however, that your husband must be a saint because you treat him like he is beneath you.

Adrienne,

Please do not end up like the other housewives...DIVORCED!!! In watching you the last couple of shows, it seems to me like you are making something out of nothing when it comes to your dealings with your husband Paul. I can't see where your frustrations are valid when he was acting like any normal husband would act...protecting his wife. That is a quality most women only dream of having and you seem like you treat it with total disrespect, disregard him as your husband. I understand that your businesses are extremely important, but your relationship with your husband and his concerns about you and your marriage should be at the top of the list. I think all of America is beginning to see a downward spiral with the fame and fortune from alot of you "housewives". I wonder if you'd respond or treat your husband the same if you weren't on tv...if not, perhaps this is something great happening to all of you to finally look in the mirror at yourselves and make some changes for the better especially for yourself, marriage and children. When the season is over, what matters most of behind closed doors. CHERISH IT!!!

Love your passion for life - Could you please be a little kinder to Paul - he's a gem!

Adrienne I love that you are such a tough businesswoman and that your business life and personal life are kept separate but I think you were alittle tough on Paul. As much as we try, businness and personal do cross paths. Your husband was very aware of the feelings of the fans and I was alittle disappointed in you atleast not listening to his concerns. He was very concerned with your safety not the business. Like you yourself as said, put people in their positions and let them work. Paul is your husband and sometimes you need to listen to his concerns about you. Some times you need to drop the walls with those you love and not be quite so tough. It would be great to see the happy and laughing Adrienne relationship with Paul, we haven't seen alot of that this year.

You are, by far, my favorite housewife in general. In fact, you are THE ONLY housewife my husband can sit and watch and listen to. You are the only one he thinks is real and honest. I'm a mom of 2 little girls and a full time student! My goal is to take my husband to Vegas (he's dying to go) for his birthday in FEBRUARY. He really wants to go to the Palms! If there is anything you could do to help, I would really appreciate it! Reguardless, you are an amazing and strong woman and I find you very inspiring and motivating. Thanks for your time and help!!

Your presentation and manner are of a classy woman. However, when it comes to talking to your husband, it is thumbs down. To demean Paul as constantly as you do, makes YOU look bad not him. You treat everyone else well, except him. It is noticeable that you don’t miss an opportunity to put him down in front of the cameras.

During the dinner you hosted, it was YOU who kept doing the talking and making your guests aware of what was going on. You should have exercised self-control, shut up, and take care of disagreements with him in private. But you decided to disgrace yourself and your husband in front of your dinner guests.

Also, Paul is a grown adult, but you were lecturing him on safety as if he were a teenager, an employee, or any other subordinate. That was degrading him in front of the cameras. And when you continued even after he softly indicated that your lecturing was not necessary, he showed tolerance even though it was clear he was fed up.

And his insistence of the danger to you of travelling to the game was a natural reaction of any husband wanting to protect his wife, but you told him to get out of your business. If you are married, your business is his business and his is yours in many ways, especially when it comes to protecting your spouse.

It looks like you do not really love him because the important element of respect is not seen in your interactions, and all the humiliating comments come out of your mouth, not his. He will sooner or later get tired of it. Do not be surprised if he decides to find another woman who does treat him with love, respect, and gives him his place in front of others.

Ad, love B-Ball, Vegas, martial arts, flying, museums, couture, shoes. I am dying for a new pair of Louboutin shoes for my son's wedding. Trying to budget. How do you do it all with small ones and a huge house to care for? You seem like a very caring person with good instinct.

Adrienne,

You are a class act! You also are a peace-maker and a very mellow, old soul, and I admire you very much. Sometimes, I wish you were a little nicer to Paul. But, I think that's why he married you. I think he likes it.

I want to say that last season, you and Lisa were my faves! This season, not so much! I still like Lisa! You need to relax with Paul or get the divorce! You are much more bitchy this season. One comment stated that it seems that you checked out emotionally. I agree. You are much different this season, not in a good way! By the way, Taylor was not having a nervous break down, SHE WAS DRUNK!!! Not to mentioned probably a little high on something! Also, Paul being concerned for your safety was very romantic and loving! He wasn't screwing with your business. He just wanted you to stay in a different suite! Is the suite you wanted to stay in THAT much nicer than where he wanted you to stay?? (For your own safety) Your financial status is showing TOOOOO much this season!

You really need to heed the advice of your security team. Your sons need you alive and healthy. I know you are trying to set a great example, but too many nuts have guns.

Adrienne, You are so much fun to watch, especially the scenes between you and Paul. The way you look at him sometimes reminds me of the days with my ex-fiance....he annoyed me one too many times so I broke our engagement.....I'm not implying anything about you and Paul, but I can't help remembering those looks!!! He was enough to make me give up on men..replaced them with two beautiful grandchildren....and after seeing your adorable doggy, I may get a puppy....a cute one, not one like Ms Vanderpompous'...he is not cute and not very nice either.

I'm from the Bay and have followed Kings basketball a little over the years..it was nice and interesting to see the situation from your perspective..I hope you didnt experience too much negative BS when you attended the last game. I can understand the fan's feelings, but now, because of the show, I can also understand where you and your family/business are coming from. I also work for a family company where many relatives are involved. You are an inspiration as a business woman-and for someone with so much wealth you appear so down to earth and aware of yourself and everything around you. I hope you and Paul are doing great-people may take issue with all of your bickering but some of the best relationships are not peaceful and sweet all the time. You were right to go to the Kings game and Paul was right (and sweet) to insist to accompany you even when he didn't agree with going. By the way, EVERY time my boyfriend and I go to Las Vegas (at LEAST once a year), we always stay at the Palms Hotel. We ADORE that place and won't stay anywhere else. I stayed for the first time on my 21st birthday 8 years ago and have been hooked ever since!

I don't know if you realise that you don't speak to Paul very well. Think you may not realise it, but at the dinner party you seemed to invite the argument and then blame him. You were condescending. It will help if you are more aware of this as you seemed to indicate that he was the problem but I think you need to be aware of how you are too.

Adrienne, I admire your business minded decisions and guts to face the music. Although it was confusing trying to decipher what Paul's concerns were about attending the game and the security meausres being taken place, it's made very clear in your blog and Paul was doing what all men should do for those they love...........protect. You handled the matter with Kim well and the one thing that I love about you and Lisa is you never let them see you sweat!

Adrienne I enjoy the show a great deal. However the way you treat Paul is jaw dropping. Paul is a gentleman, educated,and you treat him like a lapdog. I understand we dont see everything in your lives but what we do portrays you in a very BAD light!

Adrienne, I don't usually write on these blogs because what I have to say never gets posted but I have to tell you what a joy you and Paul are as a couple. I hope this show doesn't spoil it for you two because whatever "it" is, you two have it in spades!!

Adrienne, you are so down to earth and I really liked you last year but this year is even better. Your saying more and not just sitting on the sidelines with the ladies during the crazy moments, but really have the right things to say. You and your husband crack me up. You are so real, which is refreshing. Your my new favorite of all the Housewives in all the cities.

Adrienne, I like you a lot. You are a smart, independent and strong woman. You and your husband are a nice couple! I had noticed that you argue with Paul a lot lately. I am not sure what’s going on when the camera is not rolling but I get the impression that something is different between the two of you. I hope I’m wrong…I would hate to see you getting divorce. Take care….Gucka

Adrienne, I appreciate your blog and your work ethic. However, when you tell Paul to mind his own business, you and your safety are his business, or I would like to hope that you think so, even though it comes across that you don't. I know you are both Lebanese, and as I am married to a Lebanese man, I fully understand the Lebanese culture, and the way a Lebanese man thinks. I have been with my husband for 32 years. We bickered and argued a lot just like you and your husband, because of my upbringing and independence. I stand by all of that, however, now that my children are in their late teens, trust me they have told us how they feel about our bickering and arguing, and how it made them feel growing up. It was not good and loving from their perspective, even if we explained that we have been together this long and will be together until death, and that we really do love one another, but we are both headstrong and nervous people, therefore the bickering. That explanation did not make them feel better, nor does it undo the stress and worry we put them through for this behavior. Your children are young, but at some point they get what is going on, even if we were great parents to them, they wanted us to be different with each other. So, I hope that the two of you love one another, but can find a way to stop bickering so much, because it really does seem that you pick on Paul way too much, and I am sure it was because he had been selfish, thoughtless, and not listening to you and what you needed or wanted from him, like my husband did. It built up and the frustration was usually not about that moment, but was carry over from before. I get it, but other people don't, particularly the children. Trust me, I know. We both have mellowed over the years, but I realized he isn't going to change, so I shouldn't aggravate myself, unless it is something extremely important. I am not being judgmental, but I have been in your position, but without your wealth or the paid help that you have to help you manage your life, so if you love him, realize he is not going to change, work around him, and save the bickering for something huge. Your children will appreciate it and thank you for it. Trust me, I know. Good luck to you both. I think you both have incredible personalities. I hope that you have many, many more years together (preferably a little more peaceful).

Hi Andrienne, really like Jackpot. I only wish I had my own business so I can dress and go on vacations like you ladies do. I wanted to treat my husband to a Vega trip on our 16th this year...but we are chickens when it comes to flying commerical planes. Hopefully one day we will be able to afford a nice trip. What is up with you chief Bernie? He seems angry or feed up. I use to watch your hubby on the 902 show and I just though you were one of those money women married to a BH doctor...oh was ever so fooled.. Love the show.
