Which 'Real Housewife' just got divorced?

What could have been nasty turned almost nice in the end.

After one of the more sensational splits of 2012, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif, is now officially divorced. Early on, it really did seem like this would be one of the nastiest Hollywood divorce and custody battles ever. What changed?

I honestly was expecting a massive, hideously ugly divorce scandal with these two. I was seriously concerned for this couple's children. Thankfully, Adrienne and Paul came to terms that both could live with, and everyone will be spared (hopefully).Just a couple of months ago, I read that Adrienne Maloof basically accused her husband of trying to choke one of their kids. The allegations were certainly shocking, of course. Adrienne got temporary custody of the three boys and the crazy tabloid stories began. Eventually she got a restraining order against Paul. He accused her of also being abusive. That's how bad it was getting.

Look, I'll be the first one to admit that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn't exactly award-winning TV, but I watch it. It's part of our culture, right? OK, so fine, it's crap. But it's *my* crap and I actually like Adrienne Maloof. She's my favorite housewife, in fact. That's why I was so glad  to learn today that this feuding couple came to terms. As for specifics of those terms, we don't know. That will likely be kept private.

In a statement, Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif said, "We want the best for each other and we're confident we can help each other make a continuing positive impact with our children. We're happy to be moving forward with our lives in a positive way, not only individually but as co-parents."

I'm curious about what fellow Real Housewives think about all of this? Do you guys think Adrienne or Paul are to blame for the break-up (or both)?
