Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassir to divorce: Other memorable 'Real Housewives' splits
Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassir's bickering over the past two seasons of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" came to a head on Sunday when the couple of nine years announced they're splitting. TMZ was the first to report that the plastic surgeon planned to file for legal separation this week. Soon after the news broke, Maloof -- daughter of the billionaire Maloof family, which owns the Palms resort in Las Vegas and the Sacramento Kings NBA basketball team -- confirmed the sad news. "I'm so sorry that this is happening, but my children [Gavin and twins Christian and Colin] are my life, and sometimes we need to do what's best for them," she said in a statement. "It's an unfortunate situation, but I have to have my kids' best interest at heart."
Vicki and Don
After seasons of complaining about her "love tank" not being full for years, "Orange County" housewife Vicki Gunvalson finally ended her marriage to Don after 20 years together (16 of them as husband and wife) in October 2010 after a stress-induced health scare. Although both have moved on to new loves, Don still lives in the massive home he shared with Vicki -- albeit on opposite sides of the residence -- since the two still have a mortgage to pay, she recently revealed.
Tamra and Simon
The tensions between "O.C." stars Tamra and Simon Barney played a big part on "Real Housewives" for many seasons, but after a fight on New Year's Eve in 2009, the two decided not to spend another year as husband and wife. Simon was the first to file for divorce, and in his papers, he accused Tamra of infidelity and verbal abuse (she denied any wrongdoing). The divorce finally became legal this past season of "RHoOC," and Tamra had the "Simon" tattoo removed from her ring finger -- which was quickly replaced with an engagement ring from her beau, Eddie Judge.
