Adrienne Maloof. biography
Television personality Adrienne Maloof was born on September 4, 1961, in Albuquerque, New Mexico to billionaire entrepreneur George J. Maloof, Sr., who owned a Coors beer distributorship in New Mexico, and Colleen Maloof who is the co-owner of Maloof Companies alongside Adrienne and her brothers Joe, Phil, George J. Maloof. She attended the University of New Mexico on a tennis scholarship and graduated with a Political Science degree before developing her business skills within the marketing department of the family's wine and liquor business. She now carries majority of control over the marketing operations at the Maloof Companies.
Best known as a television personality, Adrienne landed her big Hollywood break when she was casted as a housewife in Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The show premiered on October 14, 2010, with its January 2011 finale bringing over 4.2 million viewers, blowing past The Real Housewives of Atlanta's season finale, which raked in 4.4 million viewers. The show's immediate success resulted in a second season in 2011, and a third season in November 2012.
Aside from reality TV and the family business, Adrienne released a shoe collection by Charles Jourdan, called Adrienne Maloof by Charles Jourdan.
Adrienne married cosmetic surgeon Dr, Paul Nassif in 2002, and have three sons together, Gavin and their twins Christian and Colin. The couple, however, filed separation papers on July 30, 2012, at the Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. Nasty accusations between the two quickly followed with Maloof's chef Bernie Guzman posting pictures of the reality star with red welts on her body on Facebook, hinting at the possibility that Nassif was the one to blame. In response, Nassif's attorney claimed the photos were a "complete fabrication." Things got worse at a September custody hearing where Nassif accused Maloof of pushing him and verbally attacking him while with the kids. A few months later, Maloof acquired a temporary restraining order on Nassif after he reportedly chocked and hit his sons. The judge order supervised visitation for Nassif in part of the restraining order despite the Department of Children and Family Services finding the claims unfounded. In November 2012, the two sides settled the case and Maloof is reportedly dating rock star Rod Stewart's 32-year-old son Sean Stewart.
