We were bummed when we learned Adrienne Maloof was leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but we were devastated when we realized what that also meant: saying goodbye to her (now ex) hubby, Dr. Paul Nassif. A fan favorite when it came to the Househusbands, Paul always brought a good-humored, down-to-earth touch to the show.
Which is why we were so eager to catch up with him, especially right after Father’s Day — his first as a single dad. Speaking exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment, Paul Nassif filled us in on his new life and his feelings about leaving RHoBH.
Wetpaint Entertainment: How did you spend Father’s Day?
Paul Nassif: My three sons and I joined my friend and his son for lunch at the country club. After that, we golfed.
Your kids golf already?
Well the kids are taking lessons, hitting the balls and stuff. It was our four boys, then my two nephews, who are teens, and my friend and I. So eight people on the golf course. We moved pretty slowly, but it was fun. After that, we went swimming and watched the original Parent Trap.
So all in all, a good Father’s Day?
Well it was the first Father’ Day without my dad, he passed in August. But I was with my kids, which was the most important thing to me.
Tell us what life is like these days.
I’m focused on two things: my children, who are number one, and my practice. I’m very busy here in Beverly Hills and I’ve also been traveling to Dubai and Saudi Arabia for my patients. I’ve been going about once every six weeks.
Are you dating?
No, not at all. Any extra time I have left I spend with friends.
Do you miss filming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
Let’s just put it this way: There’s no a big gaping hole in my life right now.
