The ‘RHOBH’ star and her husband reportedly believed an open marriage could stave off divorce, but jealousy eventually got the better of them.

Adrienne Maloof‘s separation from husband Dr. Paul Nassif may have come as a shock to fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but apparently it wasn’t surprising at all to those closest to her. “Adrienne and Paul have pretty much had an open marriage for quite some time,” a source tells “They both knew of indiscretions the other had, and both would get jealous, but their marriage had become so broken it was the only option for them.”

Dr. Nassif has already moved out of the family home they shared with their three young sons, and apparently we’ll be seeing all the drama play out on the next season of the couple’s hit Bravo show.

“Everyone involved in the show knew Adrienne and Paul weren’t happy with each other and quickly on their way to a divorce,” the source says. “Having an open marriage was not a solution but they were desperate to keep it together for the children.”

Adrienne’s husband filed for separation July 30, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

HollywoodLifers, do you think an open marriage could ever work?
