Dr. Paul Nassif has fixed plenty of noses, and he may still have time to fix his marriage to Adrienne Maloof. Less than a week after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars announced their separation, Maloof told People that they're still trying make it work.
"We're at that point where it's that bump in the road, [but] we're trying to work things out," the reality star, 50, told the magazine. "I always like to keep a positive attitude and hope that we can resolve our differences."
Married for nine years, the couple has three children -- Gavin, 8, and twins Colin and Christian, 5 -- whom Adrienne is determined to put first.
"It's always about the children and what's in their best interests," she says. "I love my children. They come before anything I've ever done. They're healthy, happy kids. I want to keep them that way."
Her determination to protect her children is the reason you won't be seeing them on Real Housewives. "What's important is to not be showing them on camera," says Maloof. "If they want to go into that business when they're older, that's fine."
With her marriage on the rocks, Maloof tells viewers to "expect a lot of drama" in the coming third season of her show.
"Some things never change," she declared. "[The drama is] amped-up a little bit more on my end."
Following reports that their relationship was in jeopardy, Adrienne and Paul confirmed their separation on July 30. "It's an unfortunate situation but, I have to have my kids best interest at heart," Adrienne told RadarOnline.
