‘RHOBH’: Adrienne Maloof Says She Won’t Return as a Full-Time Cast Member for This Reason
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHOBH) has had some big exits. Lisa Vanderpump is the latest star to walk away from the show after being caught in some drama.
Adrienne Maloof was on the show for the first three seasons. She then walked away after Brandi Glanville revealed some personal information about her. Would she ever come back? Find out her answer and more.
Adrienne Maloof quit ‘RHOBH’
The original cast member made a big move when it comes to quitting the show. She didn’t appear in the season reunion after Brandi Glaville revealed that Maloof used a surrogate to have her two sons.
“The final straw was Brandi bringing up my children. She got kicks out of trying to humiliate me,” Maloof told Us Weekly when talking about her exit. “I made it very clear [to producers] from episode one that I wouldn’t do the series if my children were involved in any way.”
Timing and legal reasons might have also been at play on why she didn’t film for the reunion. She claimed Andy Cohen asked her to film only a day before it was scheduled to tape and she was advised against it because of gag orders related to her divorce agreement with Paul Nassif.
Brandi Glanville later apologized to her on the show
Maloof and Glanville reunited in season 5 to talk about their issues. Glanville really kicked things off by apologizing.
“I just want to clear the air with you and you don’t have to move forward and be best friends or anything like that,” Glanville told her. “I mean I don’t think we need to braid each other’s hair on the weekends. You can walk away from here and hate me forever. I don’t want that.”
She continued, “There’s been a lot of low blows and back-and-forths between us and I just want to move forward and not feel uncomfortable when we run into each other. I just really want to say I’m sorry.”
She won’t return because she is raising her kids
Maloof talked about whether she would return as a full-time cast member. Her answer might disappoint her fans.
“Cameos, yes. But to go full-time, it’s a full-time job and I’m still raising three boys,” she told Us Weekly. There is some hope for cameos given she stays in touch with some of the cast members.
“I see them on and off at events. I’m busy with my own children, but you know, I think I have a respect for any of them to do reality television. It’s not easy,” she said. “We keep in touch. I’m going to New York for BravoCon.”
She was asked about what she thought of Lisa Vanderpump quitting the show. Maloof talked about the platform you get once you’re cast.
“I think you have to go in thinking, how do I want to — I hate to use the word capitalize, but, you kind of want to capitalize on an international platform,” the former star said. “Whether it’s your philanthropic work, your business, that’s how you want to go in thinking. How am I going to create what I’ve always wanted to create? Because it does give you an amazing platform.”
It sounds like Maloof is up for being on RHOBH just in a smaller capacity. The good thing is she got some kind of resolution with Glanville.
