    Paul Nassif, Adrienne Maloof Trade Barbs in Divorce Drama

    The increasingly bitter divorce drama enveloping Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif is "becoming a bit of a circus," according to one half of the couple.

    On Friday, Nassif took to his Facebook page to vent his thoughts about the custody battle surrounding the couple's three sons, claiming they are being used as "pawns."

    "The phrase 'All is fair in love and war' must have been penned by a divorce attorney," he writes. "I'm very disappointed in the ridiculous tactics that are being used that potentially compromise my relationship with my children. I hate to see others using them as pawns."

    A judge on Wednesday awarded temporary custody of the children to Maloof – and a restraining order forbidding Nassif to have contact with his sons – after she alleged that Nassif choked one of the boys last week.

    In his Facebook post, Nassif denies the claims. "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," he writes. "It is becoming a bit of a circus, isn't it?"

    Maloof's rep, Howard Bragman, counters, telling PEOPLE: "I think the court documents speak for themselves and we are not going to go into the gutter with Paul. We are going to fight this in the court of law where it belongs and do what's best for the children."

    Saying he will remain focused on the well-being of the couple's children, Nassif said, "I'm sure all will be fine and when all the emotion of the moment dies down, Adrienne and I will be terrific co-parents."

    A source close to Maloof, however, says Nassif's vow to keep the children's interests in mind is just lip service. "He keeps saying he's going to do what's best for the kids, but everything he does has been the best for him," says the source. "He's flailing and afraid and he rightfully should be. You don't do this to the kids. "

    The source says that for now Maloof is "happy the kids are with her. She wants to do everything in her power to protect her kids. "

    A source close to Paul tells PEOPLE he plans to "go back to court and fight" the temporary restraining order against him. "He will put forth witnesses that will be absolutely as credible as anyone she's putting forward. It looks like both sides are digging in for a fight, a battle royale."

    Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Adrienne Maloof Selling Mansion for $26 Million


    Adrienne Maloof is enlisting the help of a family friend -- and Real Housewives costar -- to sell her gigantic Beverly Park, Calif. mansion.

    The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star turned to Kyle Richards' husband, Mauricio Umansky, to unload her massive, 12-year-old Richard Landry-designed home.

    The property, which sits on 2 acres of land, boasts eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms -- as well as a tennis court, a screening room, a wine cellar, an in-ground pool, a pool house, and a guesthouse. The asking price? A cool $26 million.

    Maloof and her estranged husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif, both filed divorce papers on August 28. This week, the Bravo star, 50, was granted temporary custody over the couple's three boys (Gavin, 9, and twins Colin and Christian, 6), and had a temporary restraining order put into place against Nassif.

    In the documents obtained by TMZ, Maloof alleges that her spouse choked one of their boys when he was fighting with a sibling after school, and later spanked another and "threw him in the corner."

    Because this is the Gossip Forum. . . just like the Kardashian threads :yes:
    When people chat about their show the posts are moved to the TV forum.
    Didn't even occur to me to look outside the gossip forum for gossip :shrugs:

    There's always some crossover between reality stars and their shows.
     
  6. Wow... can't wait to see how this unfolds.
     
  7. :sad: I really hope they turn this around and do the right thing by their kids.
    For them to be on a reality show proves their narcissism. . . but I'm not cynical by nature so I hold out hope.
     
  8. watching the Bravotv.com season preview clips, you can see how much hostility and stress they have between them. i was unaware this was all documented and filmed. :/
     
  9. People would always say their banter is cute, and it's just them, etc. . . it made me uneasy to watch.
     
  10. choked his son?! yikesaroo!!
     
  11. I'm not sure if I believe that:thinking:
    I really like{d} Paul!
     
  12. that house is so tacky.
     
  13. I agree, its so OTT.
     
  14. Yeah . . . too much.
     
  15. I don't believe for a second that he choked his son!
