On Monday we saw photos of Adrienne Maloof of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cuddling up to Rod Stewart’s son Sean, 19 years her junior. Adrienne and Sean posed for multiple photographer whom they are likely to have tipped off. They wanted us to talk about them considering that they’re both reality stars. Only Adrienne wants us to know that her new romance is for real and that Sean isn’t just the troubled a-hole he played on “Sons of Hollywood” and “Celebrity Rehab.” She sung Sean’s praises to TMZ and included the details about his charity work, claiming “age is just a number.”
It’s official … newly single Adrienne Maloof is dating Rod Stewart’s son Sean — who’s nearly 20 years her junior — but she tells TMZ, “Age is just a number.”
Adrienne tells us, she met 32-year-old Sean very recently through a mutual friend. Sean had wanted to pitch her a business idea and the two just hit it off.
TMZ posted a video of Sean and Adrienne leaving a Bev Hills restaurant together this weekend — and Adrienne says it was just one of several recent dates. But she adds, the two are keeping things casual for now.
Adrienne — who is 51 — isn’t bothered by the age difference either, telling us, “It’s about how good of a person you are … [Sean] is a very funny guy. He’s very giving, he mentors at the mission, works with at-risk children, and gives his time and money to get children off the streets.”
So is it for real? I mentioned in our last story that they looked stupid smitten to me. Many of you commented that Sean wasn’t as into it as Adrienne was in that tight little romper she was wearing. The detail that these two met when Sean wanted to “pitch a business idea” makes me question whether it’s all a stunt for publicity. Or maybe it’s part business, part sexy times and they’re both playing it for all that it’s worth. I don’t want to think too hard about that.
Adrienne’s friend and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar, Camille Grammer, has commented on Adrienne’s new relationship. She told Radar “If Adrienne is happy, then good for her…. Adrienne needs to just have some fun and light in her life right now.” That reminds me that Camille’s 9 year-younger boyfriend, 35 year-old lawyer Dimitri Charalambopoulos, has all sorts of drama with his ex, the mother of his child. At least Sean is single without complications. Presumably. That’s one advantage to dating younger guys, less baggage. Oh and I’m waiting to hear what Adrienne’s rival Brandi Glanville has to say about this, but maybe Adrienne isn’t even on her radar when they’re not filming.
