The Real Housewives are no strangers to controversy and Adrienne Maloof is no exception. But since her very public divorce from Paul Nassif she’s come out on top with a 90210-inspired jewelry line and she’s looking toward the future.
“This is new beginnings for me… I’m happy, I’m in a good place in my life,” Maloof said at the launch of her jewelry line, Beverly Hills Gypsy, at Bloomingdales in Los Angeles Aug. 8.
And with this newfound attitude, she’s lending her headline-making wisdom to co-star, Teresa Giudice, who’s caused her own stir after being indicted on 39 counts of bank and bankruptcy fraud.
“I’m not adverse to controversy… we all go through a difficult time in our lives, certainly I’ve been through that,” admitted Maloof. “The only advice I can give her is you got to take each day as it comes…. Enjoy your children and love your children and value the most important thing in life, which is family.”
Since leaving the Housewives in March, Maloof has been busy with new business ventures and playing the dating game (along with pulling the cougar card) when she was snapped on the arm of Rod Stewart‘s 32-year-old son Sean Stewart. So are they or aren’t they?
“He and I are very good friends and always supporting each other,” she said, “just having fun right now, but more importantly my focus is on my children and business.”
