If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Good for him, he knows what he's doing. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Now...RUN PAUL RUN!

Well you really can't blame him. She always talked down to him and pretty much called him out on things that were simply minor. And she admitted in the past that she wasn't sure why they were still together. So, he's just breaking away and good for him if it make them happy. He makes his own money so they'll both be fine financially.

The Housewives Series is one of the most watched reality shows around thats why there are so many spin offs so you are the one out of touch. I loved this couple but did think she was mean to him

Adrienne and Paul on their way to a Kings game and Paul is understandably concerned for his wife's safety. Adrienne, in responce snaps, "DONT INTERFERE WITH MY BUSINESS!!!!" I would have walked away right there.

I liked both of them but could never understand why on earth she lowered herself to be on that show!!!! They both have their own money. Hope this stays out of the press because of their children.

Too bad, I liked him and for the most part her too. I actually think they are both too normal for that show. Kyle must be on deck 'cause she talks waaaay too much about how great Maricio(spelling) is.

I cannot blame him. The rolleyes and sneers of disgust on her face when they interact make it apparent she is not into him. I do not think I have ever seen her happy to see or be with her husband. She is a beautiful woman but you want to be able to talk to your mate without expressions of disgust on their face.
