"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Adrienne Maloof is reportedly considering not attending the season three reunion show taping amid ongoing fears that she will be "attacked" by her Bravo TV co-stars.

The 51-year-old mother of three was at the center of controversy at the beginning of the season after her co-star Brandi Glanville reportedly claimed Maloof had secretly used a surrogate to deliver her children. The startling revelation resulted in threats of a lawsuit and the vast majority of cast members siding with Glanville, 40.

Maloof also finalized her divorce from prominent plastic surgeon Paul Nassif in 2012, which is said to be more reason that she may avoid the reunion show. She reportedly sought legal advice regarding the matter.

"The idea of discussing her divorce on national television, and being attacked by Brandi Glanville, Lisa Vanderpump and Yolanda Foster has Adrienne thinking twice about whether or not she will go to the taping of the reunion on Friday night," a source told

"Even though Adrienne is contractually obligated to go, her lawyers have told her she doesn't have to because Bravo breached the contract by revealing details of the surrogacy of her twin sons," the insider continued. "If Adrienne thought it would be a healthy environment, she wouldn't be considering not going."

Nassif, who has since forgiven Glanville over the surrogacy incident, will reportedly not attend the reunion show, although he will appear in a pre-recorded interview.

"Paul is out of the country and unable to attend the reunion, but he did sit down for an interview that will be a part of it," the source said. "He just wanted to let the fans know how he was doing, and wanted to thank everyone for their support during the divorce proceedings."
