Adrienne Maloof and husband Paul Nassif used a surrogate to have their three children, fellow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Brandi Glanville alleges.
The Adrienne Maloof surrogate claim was made at a gathering where Maloof was not present, causing a controversy among the reality show’s stars in a recent episode, Reality TV Magazine noted.
“There’s a gathering that most of the cast attends except Adrienne,” a source said. “And during the party, Brandi takes issue with the fact that Adrienne insists she had her three boys naturally, while Brandi insists Paul and Adrienne used a surrogate.”
Later, housewife Kim Richards relays Glanville’s comments to Adrienne Maloof and Paul, feeding into some underlying animosity the couple already had for Glanville.
“Brandi and Adrienne already had some underlying issues with each other … and Brandi has a very knee-jerk reaction when she thinks people are lying or being fake,” the source said. “This was her way of reacting to something she though Adrienne was being dishonest about.”
The Adrienne Maloof surrogate claim is likely to feed into the escalating drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Wet Paint suggests. It already has brought a half-hearted apology from Glanville.
“My mouth gets me in a lot of trouble, but this time I’ve pissed off the wrong rich person,” she wrote in her Bravo blog.
Glanville has some beefs of her own with Adrienne Maloof, who claimed that Glanville sleeps until 3 pm and leaves her children alone during that time.
This brought the fighting side out of Brandi Glanville.
“Normally I would laugh it off,” Brandi wrote about Adrienne Maloof’s comments. “But when the lies involve my children, like any good mother, ALL BETS ARE OFF!”
