Former The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof is grappling with the news that her first husband, Steve Marks Jr., is on his deathbed. The entrepreneurial Adrienne and ex-husband Steve were only married for a year back when they were 20, but the pair have stayed close friends ever since. Steve, a developer in California, has terminal cancer and, according to The Daily Mail, Adrienne broke down in tears when she heard the news.

The blonde bombshell and her ex-hubby realized they were too young for married life and had their marriage annulled less than a year after saying their vows, but the former Mr. and Mrs. stayed in touch over the years, speaking regularly. Adrienne’s friendship with Steve is in stark contrast to the headache she’s had with second husband, Paul Nassif. Despite the fact that their divorce was finalized in November of 2012, the party-throwing shoe mogul and her plastic surgeon ex have still been duking it out in court, with the Housewife applying for a restraining order against Paul.

The second-eldest of the Beverly Hills Housewives stars, Adrienne (52 years young!) has moved on in her romantic life since Paul in a big way. The cougar has dated a string of much younger famous gents, including Rod Stewart's son Sean, model and actor Andy Hnilo, and Anheuser-Busch heir Jacob Busch. 24-year-old Jacob is almost three decades the vitamin pusher’s junior, and Adrienne recently revealed they’re close to getting engaged. Kind of makes us wonder what happened to the 20-year-old Adrienne’s realization that twenty-something is too young for married life?

Regardless of the goings-on in her love life today, Adrienne says she’ll always have a spot in her heart for her first love, Steve. Adrienne revealed to The Daily Mail that she and Steve would “always love one another.” First love just sticks, doesn’t it? We’re so sad for Adrienne and her heartbreak.

Send Adrienne some love and well wishes in the comments.
