Dr. Nassif filed the docs in L.A. County Superior Court this morning -- claiming he wants joint legal and physical custody of the ex-couple's children. He also wants each party to pay their own attorneys' fees.

GRYFFINDOR!    

Awww this is too bad these 2 were my favorite RHOBH couple. Although I can't blame him... she was really condescending to him all the time.

Bravo must be loving the publicity - wonder if they are planting this and other stories to try to rustle up viewership? Believe the new season starts in September. I'm still not watching until Taylor Armstrong is completely removed from RHOBH!

I love Dr. Paul Nassif . He is a caring physician and is not at all about being "Hollywood". I think at the end of the day the BRAVO show was just to much and he wanted out. I wish them both the best.

Is this show still on? I thought that crap like this has been replaced with more believable and likable shows about pawn shop bozos, people who buy crap from storage lockers, and just plain ole folk who like to sit in mud and catch cat fish with their bare hands.

Yup    

Why is it that it seems EVERY so-called "real housewife" is either a hooker, a tax cheat, getting divorced, being foreclosed on or going to jail for dealing drugs? Where do the producers find these losers?

The title of this post in bold black "pulls the trigger" is a sleazy move on your site TMZ. Come on now, it's a little cheap and insulting to your, how should I say, more intelligent/educated demographic? An audience I'm sure you want to lose.
