When Adrienne Maloof refused to appear on the season 3 reunion of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it looked like there was no way on earth she’d ever go back to Bravo again. Andy Cohen expressed his disappointment in her actions when the reunion got underway, as Reality Tea reminds readers. Fast-forward to season 5 and she’s coming back to the show again. Not only that, but producers asked her to do so; at least that’s what she claims.
In a candid interview with Us Weekly, Maloof shares why she feels it’s important to come back to RHOBH in season 5. Adrienne won’t be on the show full-time, however. She’ll appear occasionally — as well as Camille Grammer.
“I was approached by the producers to come back,” Maloof reveals. “I’m coming back in cameo roles.”
So, what changed Maloof’s mind about coming back to RHOBH?
“It just made sense to maybe take this and come full circle from where I left off last time. I’m coming back, also, a bit wiser. I know what to expect now. There were some unfinished situations that I felt the need to kind of mend and come full circle.”
According to Adrienne Maloof, she has a better “grasp” on how to handle heated conflict amongst the women. She battled Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville in season 3. She lost it when Brandi leaked a family secret she didn’t want getting out about the fact a surrogate carried her children.
“A lot has happened in my life. So with each experience, I think I’ve grown. I’m at a point now where it’s a new chapter. I can really focus and think clearer on what to expect, and there’s nothing like experience to kind of get you to where you know you want to be. And I know that I want to come full circle with the rest of the women, some closure, and I feel like I have a better grasp on how to do that now.”
Adrienne speaks fondly of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newcomer, Lisa Rinna. She thinks she’ll be an excellent addition to the cast.
“She’s lovely … I think she knows what she’s getting into. She has been around [the show] enough to kind of see what it is. She’s very close to her family, she loves her children, so at least she’s not going to take any nonsense.”
Besides being in the news for her divorce from Dr. Paul Nassif, a family secret exploited on RHOBH, and the dating trysts she’s had with younger men, Adrienne Maloof has admitted to feeling much happier since she left the show after season 3. Maybe fans will see a different side of her in the season to come.
