'Real H'wives' Doc Paul Nassif

NO Wedding Ring ...

NO Custody Battle in Split

8/1/2012 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0801_Paul_Nassif_infLegal separation has lifted a weight off Dr. Paul Nassif -- one day after officially splitting from Adrienne Maloof, he removed his wedding ring for a night out ... with his kids.

The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" doc was spotted smiling and laughing with his three boys and a nanny on their way into Benihana last night.

A source close to the family tells TMZ that reports of a brewing custody battle with Adrienne are false -- and in fact, Paul only wants "what's best for his children." We're told Paul wants joint custody, and doesn't anticipate that being an issue.

As for Paul and Adrienne's considerable fortunes -- our source confirms there is a prenup that would protect them if they divorce.

We're also told that Paul does NOT want details of their breakup to become a plot line on 'Housewives' ... because he doesn't believe it will be portrayed fairly or accurately.

Sources close to Paul tell us ... "Dr. Nassif’s sole focus is making sure both Adrienne and the kids are as happy as possible in this very difficult time.  His goal is to ensure the best interest of the children.  He is going to stay focused on them and his patients."

The source also says Nassif has "historically not worn his ring" because he is a real doctor ... with real patients, and a very busy surgery schedule.

my classmate's mother makes $84/hr on the internet. She has been fired for 10 months but last month her check was $8514 just working on the internet for a few hours. Read about it on this site CashLazy.com

What a gullible fool. With a pre-nup, the kids are the only thing of value to that gold-digger. I bet she goes for full custody, and an armor-car full of money every month in child support.

Paul seems like a good guy . It's unfortunate the marriage didn't work out but i saw it coming. Adrienne seemed kinda cold to him on the show like there was resentment brewing under the surface.

Yea! Sounds as sane as the CO gov. John Hickenlooper and his wife regarding their divorce: “Please feel free to include both of us in social gatherings as we will not find it awkward.”

This show is for celebs, not fake real housewives.

The one time the kids were on the show for a bbq with the other housewives, he corrected one of the boys for having his feet on the table and the shrew corrected him in front of the kids and everyone. That said it all right there, clueless on parentting and verbally cutting his huevos off to make herself look good. The kids are raised by nannies and I doubt Maloof can even tell them apart.

So much for TMZ stories! Team Paul all the way! These "Housewives" shows do nothing more than destroy marriages and friendships. Done watching Bravo!

I have always liked Paul better than Adrienne because she showed such blatant disrespect for him on camera. I don't know their history other than what has been put on the internet, maybe Paul deserved the disrespect, but I can only go on what I see.


But, if Paul thinks Bravo will pass up a chance to use his marital problems as drama on the show he is very naive. The only way that won't happen is if Adrienne agrees with him and she refuses to dish about any details while filming. It will be interesting to see if she really does what is best for their children or caves in to the pressure of providing drama for the show to keep herself from being fired after this season. Bravo seems to be on a "take no prisoners" track as far as who will stay and who will go from season to season on their housewives shows.

I don't understand why he's doing a legal separation instead of a divorce. It can be twice the cost and hassle, if he wants to convert to a divorce later. Is he trying to persuade her to change in some way, and wants to stay married?

Why does he wear his medical scrubs out to dinner? It's suspect.
