About Adrienne Maloof:
A savvy "no-nonsense" businesswoman, Adrienne Maloof is an Albuquerque, New Mexico native who moved to the palm tree-lined streets of Beverly Hills 15 years ago.
Adrienne, her mother and four brothers comprise the Maloof Family dynasty whose multi-faceted sports and entertainment enterprise includes the Sacramento Kings, Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Sweeping Palms Entertainment (film, television & music) and Maloof Money Cup, the World’s largest skateboard competition. Adrienne was instrumental in making the Palms Casino Resort an international hot spot for celebrities, entertainers and athletes. She also worked with her family to take over a struggling Kings franchise and almost immediately propelled the team to one of the most recognizable in the NBA.
Adrienne is also involved in several charitable organizations within her community; she has a strong passion for the School On Wheels program and the Good News Foundation and in 2002, she established the Camp Kindness program with the Sacramento SPCA to provide resources and education for youth in-need to own and raise pets when they otherwise would have been unable to do so.
While business certainly plays an extremely important role in Adrienne’s life, her true daily passion is family. Married to prominent Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif, she is a mom through and through, raising her three young sons, Gavin (7) and twins Christian and Colin (4). Business meetings, conference calls and corporate strategizing all take a back seat when it comes to taking care of her boys.
Although she’s petite and demure, Adrienne’s not one to mess with due to her strong dedication to the martial arts and self-defense. She was also one of the nation’s top-ranked youth tennis players and went on to earn a scholarship to play collegiate tennis at the University of New Mexico where she earned a bachelor’s degree in political science.

Shaun Robinson asked her friends Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Lisa VanderPump, aka The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, to each donate daywear from their closets to auction in support of one of Shaun’s favorite organizations, Dress for Success. They all came through, so Shaun is hosting the auction of RHOBH daywear ranging from Dolce & Gabbana to Ralph Lauren. If you’re the high bidder, you can own a gently-worn hand-me-down from a Real Housewife and at the same time help Dress for Success provide suits appropriate for job interviews for women who may not already have just the right thing.
