Adrienne Maloof of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is putting her opulent, over-the-top mansion on the market for $26 million, THR has learned.
The Bravo reality star shared the palatial home with husband Paul Nassif, a cosmetic surgeon, who has appeared on past seasons of the Beverly Hills edition. Their marital bickering, shown on camera, appears to have not been staged: the couple is currently going through an acrimonious split, with verbal grenades being pitched on both sides.
Nassif filed for divorce Aug. 28, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking joint physical and legal custody of their three sons, Gavin, 9, and 6-year-old twins Collin and Christian.
Last Wednesday, a judge awarded Maloof temporary custody of the boys after she alleged that Nassif had choked one of the children. She also received a restraining order against Nassif, barring him from contact with the kids.
Maloof's family owns the Sacramento Kings and the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas; she married Nassif in 2002.
Responding Friday in a post on Facebook, Nassif argued that Maloof was using their sons as "pawns" in court.
"It continues to amaze me how so much of the hoopla surrounding a reality show is in reality, unreal -- including the absurdity of the latest utterly false accusations by Adrienne's attorney which we will vigorously address in court. It is becoming a bit of a circus isn't it?" he wrote.
Maloof's representative told People.com that "the court documents speak for themselves and we are not going to go into the gutter with Paul."
This weekend, the 51-year-old businesswoman-socialite held a pre-Emmys spa retreat at her estate with guests including fellow Real Housewife Alexis Bellino, Taryn Manning and Brooke Mueller.
