The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have really been going through it this season, but at least one of them is turning lemons into vodka lemonade with a whiskey chaser. Adrienne Maloof, the tiny powerhouse who seems rich enough to buy and sell every other Housewife from every other series a few times over, is getting into the fashion game with a new line of shoes recently launched at Lord & Taylor.
Maloof, whose personal wealth is estimated at $300 million (how’s that for “VERY rich”?), has turned her shoe closet into an office where in the privacy of 500 shoes she works on building her brand. The shoes are only a stepping stone — pun intended — to other ventures Adrienne has in the works, including handbags, a clothing line, a lower-priced line of shoes and even her own reality show. While other Housewives are all about the drama, all about the weave-pulling and all about the name-calling, Adrienne Maloof is clearly all about the paper. [WWD]
