As we previously reported, real housewife of Beverly Hills Adrienne Maloof and her husband Paul Nassif are over.
Let's cue the post separation fodder from "sources."
1) The open marriage caused the divorce [Radaronline] Radar is reporting that Paul has moved out of the couple's mansion (which has its own zip code). Radar's sources aren't surprised though. They expected the couple to divorce. "Adrienne and Paul have pretty much had an open marriage for quite some time," a close pal exclusively told RadarOnline.com. Although the open marriage understandably caused problems, the pal claims that neither is divorcing because of an outside relationship.
"They both knew of indiscretions the other had, and both would get jealous, but their marriage had become so broken it was the only option for them."
Adrienne didn't admit to having an open marriage, but did tell Radar, "I'm so sorry that this is happening, but my children are my life and sometimes we need to do what's best for them. It's an unfortunate situation, but I have to have my kids' best interest at heart."
2) Clash between work and personal life [People] People's source claims the separation is because the couple was not equally yolked. "The show was the killer. It was the straw that broke the camel's back," the source said. The couple became competitive. The source explained Paul "was into the fame of it. He was the one who encouraged her to do Real Housewives." Obviously. Every time he was on camera he was smiling from ear to ear. But he had the personality for it!
They "went head to head all the time," the source adds, as "Adrienne then became the Housewife with the storyline, and he was just the husband."
This source also claims the split is best for their sons because the couple argued a lot and the kids didn't need to hear that.
Paul was spotted after news of the separation filing broke. He was not wearing his wedding ring, but was wearing a smile.
