Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Adrienne Maloof’s rumored money troubles have been at the forefront of Housewives news lately, but the 49-year-old heiress to the Maloof family fortune said it’s not just her own family who’s trimming the fat.

“Regardless of your income, everybody is cutting back; it's the responsible thing to do,” she told Radar Online.

While Adrienne once pointed to co-star Lisa Vanderpump as the ‘richest’ housewife, Adrienne and her prestigious family have a staggering litany of income streams, including the Las Vegas Palms Casino Resort and the Sacramento Kings basketball team. But Adrienne says playing it smart in troubling times has been the secret to keeping the family afloat for so long.

“This is how we've been successful for over 150 years in our family business... we watch our overheads, we don't spending frivolously, we take care of our employees and give back philanthropically to various charities — and of course, we always work very hard on all our projects," Adrienne said. We’ve always said she was savvy!
