Soon to be an ex-housewife, Adrienne Maloof has been laying low after the ugly, violent allegations surfaced in her bitter divorce from Dr. Paul Nassif, but the reality TV star is now talking about her real-life drama … that reportedly will play out on-screen this season on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

Maloof hit the red carpet Sunday night at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles for the Season 3 premiere of the Bravo show, which debuts Nov. 5, where she answered a few questions about the demise of her 10-year marriage to Nassif, with whom she has three sons.

“It’s very difficult,” Maloof, 51, told People magazine. “I’m not made of stone. I’m a real person. It’s always difficult when your life is played out in the public.”

Maloof, whose family owns the Sacramento Kings and The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas, and Nassif, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, announced their separation in July, with allegations of verbal and physical abuse by both parties later to follow, as a custody battle ensued.

“There are many women in this world who have it much more stressful than I do,” the millionairess said. “It’s always a pleasure to be part of the Bravo team. It’s difficult at times, but I’m here because it’s my job. There are benefits and there are negatives.”

“I’m a very strong woman,” she added. “I’ll get through it.”

The third season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” premieres Monday, Nov. 5 at 9/8c on Bravo.
