For you Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans – is Adrienne Maloof bringing it this season? Apart from throwing parties, sitting there patiently listening to other women bitch, and bickering constantly with her husband and the help, Adrienne wasn’t that interesting in the season that I watched, the first season. Of course she’s now in the process of getting a divorce, she’s fighting with new castmember Brandi Glanville, and she’s allegedly dating a much-younger fellow reality star, but I doubt she’s changed much Anyway Adrienne is off the show now for the upcoming fourth season, she got fired. People Magazine has the scoop with the details that Adrienne was often late and “producers were sick of her issues.” If only those “issues” were jucier.
Following the news of Camille Grammer’s departure from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, sources have confirmed that Adrienne Maloof will not be returning for season 4 – and that she was fired.

“She was let go,” says a source close to Bravo’s hit show. “Producers were sick of her constant tardiness and her issues.”
But a source close to Maloof, 51, disputes that, saying, “It was her decision to leave. Adrienne is very happy.”
Maloof – who is currently dating 32-year-old Sean Stewart – did not participate in the season 3 reunion, citing legal reasons related to her divorce from Paul Nassif.
“The producers were begging Adrienne to come back to the show and the reunion right up until the last minute,” the Maloof source says.
Whether or not she was fired or made her own decision to leave the show, the Maloof source says she’s not looking back: “Housewives was part of her past. She’s looking to the future.”
Adrienne has confirmed that she’s leaving RHOBH, claiming “it was time to exit,” but adding off the record that “she doesn’t need that kind of negativity in her life.” In related news, TMZ currently has a suspicious story that sounds straight from Adrienne’s camp – it even takes a dig at Brandi. They claim that there’s some kind of “boycott” of the show and that “Several lawyers and managers in Hollywood have banned together to tell clients… to stay clear of [RHOBH].” Then they get into the reasons why, with this particularly telling quote:
Here’s the gripe — the way the show is structured, cast members can say ANYTHING about anyone on the show and get away with it, even if it’s inaccurate and malicious. Camille and Adrienne have — in the past — complained that other cast members have lied about their business ventures, including Adrienne’s Las Vegas casino, and they’ve had no legal recourse.
As one professional put it, “It’s fine if Brandi Glanville does the show. She doesn’t have anything going for her and the show makes her famous. But for someone who has a real business or career outside the show, they need to stay a mile away.”
Burn to Brandi, whom Adrienne hates. Adrienne can’t stand Brandi because about a month ago she revealed the fact that Adrienne used a surrogate for her six year-old twins, and didn’t give birth to them herself as she’s tried to play off. After Brandi did that, Adrienne admitted that it was true she used a surrogate and claimed that Brandi “did destroy our family” and “took away something so precious.” There were rumors that Adrienne was going to sue Brandi for it, but apparently all that happened was that Adrienne’s ex Paul had his lawyer send her a letter about it.
So all this crap about an alleged “boycott” and women with “businesses” getting upset at false allegations hurled on the show is probably just about Adrienne being upset that Brandi called her out for using a surrogate and not admitting it. She’s just trying to make it seem like there’s going to be some larger fallout for the fact that she got fired.
