Needless to say, it was an emotional day.
I know people are remarking on Kim's eccentric behavior that afternoon, and I'll leave it to someone else to speculate the root cause, but I will say that she did manage to make me laugh a few times whether she intended to or not. Next time I take her on a trip like that just remind me to buy her a power generator for her house first though, okay? Ha.
The best part of that day? Meeting with the fans and the people who have worked for us for all these years in that arena. It’s amazing what shaking someone’s hand and simply saying “thank you” can do for your spirit. It’s true that gratitude is the best medicine.
Would you please tell me what kind of a dog Jackpot is? He is the cutest little puppy I have ever seen. TEAM JACKPOT!!!!
Last season you were the voice of reason and stayed above the fray. This year, you have cranked up the drama in order to get more camera time. It is transparent and fake. The theatrical bickering, exploiting Kim's issue for more camera time, getting Jackpot to compete with Giggy (Giggy wins, sorry), allowing your chef Bernie to say rude things about Lisa (we know that Bernie and Cedric are friends) and now introducing Brandi (who you aren't even friends with in real life and who you know is friendly with Cedric) to the group in order to antagonize Lisa.
The viewers are smart, Adrienne and we do a lot of research online and are very good at pieces things together.
You are losing fans. We want the old Adrienne back who was above the fray. You and Kyle should see Jill as a cautionary tale about what jealousy and camera-mongering can lead to.
Dear Adrienne, Great blog! Thanks for sharing a part of your business world with us. You really have a big heart and a sharp mind. As for Brandi, you have every right to befriend whomever you please. The others really behaved badly to the "new" girl. They exhibited bad form, bad manners and a bad streak to someone who was introduced as your friend. Imagine if they thought she was your enemy! Unbelievably disappointing that Kyle (and co.) couldn't be mature for one moment. You and Lisa are my favorite housewives from all of the franchises. You both exhibit understated class, intelligence, directness and inner beauty.
Adrienne, I love you on this show. I love how you're honest, and down to earth. In my next life I want to come back as you! LOL. Keep on smiling! Love Jackpot too!
Adrienne, As I watched the segment with Brandi, I only felt sadness for the way the meangirls treated your guest even if she does turn out to lack class - how embarassed that must have made you feel!! Strange how Taylor was being so kind and inviting her children to get together with each other only to gang up with Kyle later... Will be interesting to see who forms the next cliques.
You should really consider writing a book on management, and just treating people well on all levels in a company or organization. I work for a company i n which we do not feel any respect from upper management, and it would be nice to hear that this isn't the way things work everywhere.. I truly enjoy watching and hearing from you.
Wishing you all the best!!
Adrienne-I think you are AMAZING! I look foward to watching your show.I think out of all the housewives you are my favorite.You are beautiful, REAL non-judgmental, nice, commpasionate, & a real CLASS act.You are most likely to be the richest.But, the best person out of the whole bunch.I think you are very succsessful & impress me even more & more when I watch you each week.I saw how much you vauled your fans & cared about the way they felt.You score an A+++ in my book.I am a stay at home mommy to triplets.So, watching your life & your show is rather exciting!LOL.Don't change a thing about your self you ROCK! Best Wishes! Missy Miller Alabama
Yikes, we have you to blame for bringing Brandi in the mix? Hopefully, we don't see her much. I am not diggin your negative attitude with Paul either. You are very degrading. With everything you have going on in business, personal life, kids maybe you need to re-think the show. You are starting to act like Jill Zarin! (Bossy)
You are the best one out of the bunch. You think before you speak and I think you really try to have respect for everyone. Thank you for being you!
It was very decent of you not to address Kyle's catti mean girl behavior at an event she hosted and how she treated your guest. Your husband hit it right on the head! Love him.
Adrienne, I truly think you are the only housewife, of all housewives from all seasons, who has never done or said a single thing I want to criticize. I wish you all the happiness in the world. You deserve it.
You have such a hard edge to you, but seem so kind and loving and I love that you don't get in the middle of gossip. I'd love to see you treat Paul with more respect and kindness though.
Adrienne, You are my favorite housewife by far. I love your dynamic with your husband. I think it's real and honest. I think Paul is funny and I can tell that he really loves you. He felt protective of you during the game, and even though he didn't think you should go, he went with you. Our husbands always annoy us. It's called marriage. :) Anyway, I think you are fun to watch, I like seeing what you wear and I like your personality!
I find you are the most fascinating and insightful of the group, based on your business acumen and management skills. I really enjoyed watching you navigate through the sports team issue much more than any nasty drama. And it was really sweet to see you and Paul display geniune care and concern for each other. I hope we get to see more of you in action-work wise that is-with your fabulous shoes!!!
With you being in all the social "know," how could you miss that Brandi knew Cedric. At least Lisa had class enough to confront her on the recent photos. Kudos th her. There are those who seem to enjoy the constant banter between you and your husband. That kind of marriage would not work for me. My husband and I communicate, and yes disagree. But we also let our children know that even when we disagree we still love each other. If the bantering floats your boat great but do you think it is healthy for your children to see? I think it is a good thing Lisa moved to another home...I am not sure you are the most trustworthy.
Well, great blog Adrienne, and I still like you the best (well, you and Lisa). I honestly hope you are being kind to Kim and didn't invite her so she can be judged anymore than she already has (#1 her own sister - horrible how Kyle outed her last year). I hope like the others who are treating Taylor with "kid" gloves, someone can be a true friend to Kim. As far as Brandi, whatever her situation/personality is, the behavior on the other women (well "so called" woman) was horrendous and demeaning. Once again, Kyle at the head of the class.
Adrienne, I like you alot, but I wish that you would see that Paul is genuinly concerned about you and not trying to butt into your business. I also want to say that I feel if the Maloofs wanted a "state of the art arena" as you have put it, then your family should have footed the bill themselves, not potentially raise taxes for the ppl of Sacremento.
Adrienne, It is refreshing to see someone who is so considerate of others. There seems to be a lacking of people with your kind of character. I always look for the best in people and appreciate the kindness you show. The emotions that you were feeling for your fans did come across clearly.
Adrienne, I really and truly admire your spirit (and your heart). To care so much about the sadness the fans felt and also being in a position of such awkwardness with their feelings must have been so difficult. You really are dedicated to EVERYTHING you commit to and that's just such a wonderful quality you possess. You may have tons of money, but honestly, you never act as if you do. You're kind and humble and I just think you're terrific! Being on these reality shows must be difficult for many reasons, yet you NEVER say a bad word about anyone, you share your opinion with openness and a warm heart. You're just lovely!
Thank you for sharing your business of owning an NBA team. You are so smart...a totally attractive quality to an already beautiful woman. Love you, Adrienne.
I truly think that u are a very down to earth person .. with all the money and fame u ..u have a real heart and u are one of my most fav of the bunch of ladies :)
You & Paul are great,the best part of the show. Keep the bickering in check as you appear to truly love each other.
Thank you for the vantage point of the Sac Kings saga. I've been a loyal fan for years and was so sad during the last few games knowing you all wanted to leave. Paul was making me mad because he was portraying the fans as violent people and untrustworthy. We have been nothing but loyal for years. Thank you for showing your true concern and pain in this decision. You showed respect and I admire you for that.
Adrienne, you are not losing fans and if you do it is only those that hate and can not see truth anyway. I love that you stay above all the gossip. You know you have gotten where you have because you know how to conduct your self in business and in life. I have been with my husband for 35 years and yes we tit for tat all the time, it's just our way and yet we love each other so much and are commited to each other for life. As a grown woman you can invite whom ever you want to where ever you want, the few on here that say different are just way too sensitive and probably have problems on a daily bases because of it. Keep being you, please don't change because of this TV show.
Love you and love Brandi. She may have her faults but who doesnt. she is a mother above all who has been treated horribly by her and ex and his new wife. You show who you are by befriending her even though she is not just like you!
Why don't you stay in Sacramento until the economy recovers? Maybe then they will be able to build that new arena you want. It looks like you are filling seats even during a recession because of your loyal fan base. You won't have that in the LA area. Aren't people in the LA metro area rabid Lakers fans anyway?
Adrianne your the prettiest & the one with her sh-- together. You definitely dont take sh-- from anyone & good for you. Stay strong lovely lady!
Adrienne, I think you are classy and down to earth. It's refreshing that your focus isn't on getting your nails done, or shopping for a new dress but on the businesses you run. Wish you the best. Hope the other fans are wrong about you!
I don't know how you and Lisa put up with these adolecent mean girls. Kepp being you. You are great. My guess is after this season, you will probably be moving on. I hope not, but who could blame you. Best wishes for you, Paul and the boys.
When you were signing autographs, and taking pictures with your fans it really showed how down to earth you are in spite of being filthy rich. You are my favorite and I wish you the best. God bless you and your family.
Adrienne, Complement you on trying to be inclusive to Kim but in God's name why on that night? You HAD to be in Sacramento and there was all that tension. Waiting on her just added to it. You couldn't have invited her to meet for lunch some other day??? Best to keep it to a minimum not knowing what you would be dealing with. Keep it local so you can have to dash home. You had the best of intentions as I think you are truly a kind person, just not to Paul.
Adrienne, Wow, the exquisite details of your passionate relationship with your team and the world of sports itself was mesmarizing! Your husband and boys are so lucky to have you in their lives and to be surrounded with such passion. It truly does rub right off on those around you so lucky them. Thank you for taking the time to bring your fans into your unique world each week. Can I say that your should update your picture.....you are so beautiful and that side-swept updo is not so becoming on you.
Having just closed a business because of the Landlord couldn't afford to upgrade to make the changes I need to succeed was one of the most difficult things I have ever done. I had basically supported my staff for two years but at some point I had to move to be profitable. I empathize with the situation Sacramento has put you in. It seems they have put you in an impossible situation and the fans can't understand. I think their anger is misplaced. Hang in there!
you are refreshing and a true working housewive! its about time we see a working one! You need to lift up on Paul he is a good hubby! I also agree about your basketball team..give it some more time..LA has the Lakers and you have other business's and your husband has a JOB in which most of the other housewives's husbands DON'T!! So stop and think about us working class people and not $$$..that is what we all love about you! I hope this makes it to you and the blog! Love your fam....Jackpot also he is just to cute! better than giggy!
I'm glad you've reached out to Kim, she was really ganged-up on last season... especially by master-manipulator Taylor!
I've read that the Sacramento stadium is always sold out. It makes the Sacramento fans happy. It seems like even the players want to stay. So what if the economically depressed city of Sacramento does build a new stadium and it ends up only half full? This should open everyone's eyes to the fact that professional sports is all about money. The average middle income family can't afford to go to any kind of events.
Adrienne you truly seem to be an amazing lady and really care about other people. You are the epitome of a class act. God Bless.
You are amazing! It took a lot of strength to go to that game and face the fans, especially not knowing if it would be dangerous or not. I love watching you and admire your strength and hard work. Another thing that I love about you is the way you do not talk bad about the other women and if you have something to say, you say it to them. Thank you for welcoming us into your home and life.
Adrianne, Thought your initial behavior (last season) on the show was dignified and self-censoring. However, this season's behavior towards your hubby makes some (me) viewers slightly uncomfortable. Paul appears to be funny, caring with a paucity of narcissism. I am married to a loving, brilliant and successful guy who would not tolerate a nano-second of disrespect, nor do I.
Thanks for explaining about your team that you own. It even got my husbands' attention last week and he wondered what I was watching. LOL Thanks for being so classy especially with the other ladies. I was very surprised at Brandi tho' and wondered how the two of you could ever be friends. She's sort of crass. Gives me the shivers. Your husband is so neat and funny and I hope that the sniping you do is more for the show and not something that goes on all the time. He's so cute!
I love your marraige to Paul,Its just like mine. Ive been married 20 years we bicker but thats us. You two are the best on the show. Good luck with your team. You two are the Best and my favorite.
