Well, it’s official, Adrienne Maloof will not be returning for the 4th season of RHOBH. She won’t even be appearing on this season’s Reunion Special. During the March 1 taping, host Andy Cohen offered this explanation:
“Well, today we are missing one of the Housewives who’s been with us since the beginning. Adrienne Maloof has decided not to participate today. This season was hard on Adrienne, as you all know. A secret about her family was revealed by Brandi. And from that moment on, Adrienne refused to speak directly about it. We know that frustrated you in the audience. It frustrated all of us too. Adrienne won’t be here to tell her side of the story. Not only is she absent tonight, but she won’t be on the show next season. Adrienne Maloof’s final act as a Housewife was NOT showing up tonight.”
Seems straightforward enough, right?
Apparently Adrienne didn’t think so. We’re hearing that she found his choice of words “unprofessional”. Hmmm…kind of like not showing up to work?
So what was her explanation for the absence?
A source told RadarOnline: “She knew she would have been thrown to the wolves though if she had gone to the taping, and quite frankly she is through with dealing with all the non stop drama and verbal assaults. Brandi and Lisa were both telling producers before the taping that they were looking forward to pouncing on Adrienne. She heard about it and decided there was no way she was going to let those b****es come after her like that.”
So there you have it, catch 22. Adrienne didn’t come because she didn’t want to get picked on but she got picked on anyways for not coming. Or so she’d tell it.
We’re guessing producers (and Andy) aren’t too concerned. We reported earlier that producers wanted her back for season 4 in order to feature her blossoming romance with Sean Stewart but…shocker…they’ve just called it quits.
