Real Housewives Star Adrienne Maloof and Hubby Are Separating?
UPDATE: It’s official. Adrienne Maloof’s husband Dr. Paul Nassif has filed his petition to legally separate from Adrienne after speculation that they were headed towards a split.

Paul included in the forms that he wants joint legal and physical custody of their kids and the docs also reveal that they do have a pre-nup. Their date of separation is listed as TBD.

“I want the best for her and our children and I hope that everyone can respect our privacy away from the cameras,” he tells TMZ.

Why is the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” drama always better off-screen?

Adrienne Maloof and her husband of 10 years Dr. Paul Nassif (the only husband besides Mauricio who actually makes appearance on the show, granted he’s mostly shooting Botox into the other women’s faces, but still) are reportedly planning to file for legal separation this week.

A source told TMZ that Paul and Adrienne have been addressing the split for a while now and it will be Paul who plans to file for the separation.

This is sad news, you guys. I always thought Adrienne and Paul had a great marriage. Well, except for the times when she said he annoyed her and that she couldn't wait to leave him to go on “girls weekend,” but other than that, I thought they were pretty cute together.

Apparently the couple had made several attempts to work out their issues, but a separation is the only option left. They have been married since 2002 and have three sons together.

However, Adrienne hasn’t been shy about discussing “marriage in Hollywood,” telling Hollyscoop, “my husband and I have been married for 10 years been together for 12, and in Hollywood I'd say 10 years is about 50 years, it's a lifetime.”

At the time, she thought her marriage was going strong.

“Real marriage is difficult, it's another job but at the end of the day there has to be that mutual respect and love and we’re the type of people that just get it out and then we're done with it and move on,” says Maloof.
