Adrienne Maloof has all but dotted the final "i" on her divorce papers with her plastic surgeon hubby Paul Nassif, agreeing on a plan to divide their big pot of money and custody of their three boys.
"We're happy to announce we have reached agreement on a settlement that we are both very pleased with," the millionairess told People magazine, putting a happy face on what has up till now been a bitter struggle between the two Bickersons.
Some women may have envied the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star for her free access to face lifts and other rejuvenation treatments. But her rocky marriage was obvious to anyone who observed her rolling her eyes eyes at and making disparaging remarks to the huggable teddy bear on Bravo's popular Monday night show.
Despite its longevity, the Maloof-Nassif marriage was as doomed as that of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, who figured out they were not a match in a mere 72 days.
Like Maloof, Kardashian often berated her husband who spent much of the marriage looking shell shocked. When the newlyweds appeared on Jay Leno, Kim mocked Kris for barking like a dog and in an episode of "Keeping up with the Kardashians" she scolded him for being late as if she were his mother.
The hoopster seemed to be a disposable Ken doll for his businesswoman bride who made millions off the wedding and exited the marriage as cavalierly as if it were the last episode of a TV mini-series.
Another reality TV couple whose divorce could be predicted was Kate and Jon Gosselin. The mom and pop of eight children had their own reality TV show," Jon & Kate Plus Eight," of which Kate got custody after the pair split (the show was curiously renamed "Kate Plus 8," as if Jon could be erased like a stray pencil mark).
The boyish faced husband claimed afterward that Kate tried to control him, refusing to even let him go out with his friends, and the blonde coupon clipper later conceded on the "Today" show she had a "sharp tongue." None of this was a news flash to TV viewers who wondered how the two had managed to stay together as long as they did.
And in one of the more bizarre reality TV marriages gone wrong, "Real Housewives of D.C.'s" Michaele and Tareq Salahi were divorced after the former ran off with rock star Neal Schoun of Journey. Better known as the White House gate crashers (the couple snuck into a State Dinner without invites), the Salahis allegedly had a tenuous hold on truthiness and ultimately could not even trust each other.
