'The Real Housewives of Beverly'... shhh! What is Adrienne Maloof's big secret?

Yahoo Contributor Network

What is Adrienne Maloof's secret? Adrienne has been bullied on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" this season. Some fans of the "Housewives" franchise unfortunately seem to have a "kick a girl when she's down" mentality. If someone's going through a rough patch, she quickly becomes Twitter fodder and reality roadkill.

"Housewives" come in and out of popularity. Onetime villain Camille Grammer has been remade as the sweetheart next door. NeNe Leakes of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" has gone from being the BFF anyone would want to snark-meister and back to fun bestie. Sometimes Tamra Barney of "Real Housewives of Orange County" is a fan fave, and at other times, she's vilified.

The currently looming question for "Beverly Hills" fans has become, "What is Adrienne's secret?" A few episodes ago, Brandi Glanville leaked a secret that could apparently ruin Adrienne and her super rich family. Recently rehabbed castmate Kim Richards thought that Adrienne needed to know what Brandi was saying about her. She chose to share her thoughts in the middle of a formal garden party, of course. What follows goes down in "Housewife" meltdown history.

Adrienne and hubby Paul Nassif jumped into Brandi's face, presumably to fend off her attack. Unfortunately, it felt like the model was being bullied. She seemed defenseless for once. No one likes watching a man verbally attack any woman. Of course, one could argue that Glanville instigated the issue by sharing Adrienne's private business at a social gathering.

Whether watchers are on the side of Adrienne or Brandi, there's only one thing everyone wants to know. What is Adrienne's secret?

As Brandi shared her sordid tale with the group, her words were bleeped out. It seems that it was something about Adrienne's family. Adrienne has since accused Brandi of being a liar and threatened to sue. That threat may be the reason why Bravo won't air the secret. To add insult to injury, Adrienne and Paul have just gone through an ugly public divorce.

For those not in the know, Adrienne Maloof is wealthy, even for the Beverly Hills set. The shoe designer is from a prominent family. She is not Donald Trump "Celebrity Apprentice"-contestant rich. Adrienne is private jet rich.

So what's the big secret? The betting money says that it centers on drugs, infidelity, sex, or money, like most reality TV secrets. We'll see what happens as the season unfolds. It's getting vicious, ladies.

"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" airs Mondays on Bravo. Check your local listings for times.
