The two butted heads over Adrienne’s divorce from Paul Nassif, which she has insisted on keeping off-camera this season in order to “project a certain image of having the perfect life,” said an insider. But Brandi wasn’t about to let her stay mum on the topic.
“Brandi felt Adrienne was being inauthentic and disregarded her wishes [to not discuss her marital problems on camera] while the two of them were at dinner,” the source said. Adrienne kept her cool at first, but she later broke out into a screaming fit with Brandi and the production staff.
When she learned that the cameras had caught the dramatic fight on camera, Adrienne went “ballistic,” said the insider. She called Bravo and threatened to quit, but the network invoked her contract agreement, which binds her to the show for the rest of the season.
Interestingly enough, it’s Lisa Vanderpump who Adrienne blames for the blowout with Brandi.
“Adrienne feels Lisa put Brandi up to this,” the source said.
