"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" stars Adrienne Maloof and Brandi Glanville have been embroiled in an ongoing feud over alleged surrogacy claims. A new report explains why the newly divorced reality star is so furious with the former model.
"Real Housewives" cast mates have never confirmed reports of a surrogacy and Bravo TV producers deliberately edited out footage of Glanville's revelation allegedly at Maloof's request. Various reports claim that the "secret" has become an important issue for Maloof because it allegedly involves her and Nassif's three children.
"Brandi takes issue with the fact that Adrienne insists she had her three boys naturally, while Brandi insists Paul and Adrienne used a surrogate," a source previously told Wetpaint.com.
Maloof, 51, became so enraged with Glanville's revelation that she threatened the single mother with a lawsuit and reportedly barred anyone on set from ever discussing the matter. A new source recently attempted to explain the socialite's fury.
"A child psychologist recommended [Adrienne] wait until they are 10 years old. She doesn't want them teased at school or asked about it!" a source reportedly told Us magazine.
Maloof, who divorced Nassif in November, had previously served Glanville, 40, with a cease-and-desist through her high-powered attorneys.
"It basically said, 'Shut the f--- up.' Adrienne is furious. She despises Brandi!" the source said.
Viewers of the hit Bravo reality TV show have recently witnessed Maloof and Nassif verbally attack Glanville over her surrogacy comments, but in a bizarre twist, the prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon has since backtracked and befriended Glanville. Nassif apologized to Glanville shortly after his divorce from Maloof was finalized in recent months.
"It took a while, and several calls to Brandi. But, she finally gave in and forgave Paul. It was a really groveling apology that did the trick in the end," a source reportedly told RadarOnline.com.
"Paul realized he was out of line talking to Brandi like that and felt he was being egged on by Adrienne, who was also on the attack," the source went on, adding that "he blamed Adrienne for his resentment towards Brandi, which he told her was completely unfounded."
Glanville recently admitted that she and Nassif have since patched things up despite her ongoing feud with Maloof.
'I run into him every once in a while. He's lovely and we text occasionally. He actually apologised for his behaviour [about the cease-and-desist]," Glanville said.
