Adrienne Maloof's Secret Marriage To Steve Marks Before Paul Nassif Revealed

  on

Adrienne Maloof was notoriously outraged when Brandi Glanville, her former co-star on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” revealed a secret about her family, even going so far as to threaten a lawsuit against Glanville, so she may not be pleased to have another secret about her past exposed.

According to Hollywood Life, Dr. Paul Nassif wasn’t the first husband of the businesswoman/reality-television personality. In 1993, Maloof tied the knot with former football player Steve Marks, even changing her last name to his.

A source who spoke to Radar Online’s sibling Star magazine told it the wedding was an extravagant affair. “It was quite a wedding -- more than a thousand guests,” the source said. “Charlton Heston was the guest of honor. He was introduced as a family friend and gave a speech.”

But the couple ended things after only six months of marriage, filing for divorce on March 14, 1994. Radar Online reported the divorce was finalized just weeks later.

Maloof reportedly became engaged again, in 2001, to Los Angeles lawyer Joe Longo. The Sacramento Bee even ran an article claiming that Maloof was “planning a January marriage to Joe Longo, a Los Angeles sports attorney.” However, that planned wedding never took place, as Longo allegedly called off their engagement.

But just a month after the engagement was broken, Maloof was engaged again, this time to her now ex-husband Nassif. The couple, who have three sons together, were married in May of 2002, and went on to star together on the Bravo reality-TV series. They finalized a divorce after 10 years of marriage last fall.

Since then, Maloof has been linked to two high-profile men: Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Sean Stewart, the 32-year-old son of British rocker Rod Stewart. Despite the drama involved in the Nassif-Maloof divorce, including accusations that Nassif physically abused the couple’s children as well as Maloof, the former couple now appear to be on civil terms.

Shortly after the news broke of Maloof’s relationship with Stewart, Nassif said that he had no feelings of ill will toward his ex-wife and wished her the best. "As long as she's happy, that's all I care about,” Nassif told TMZ. Nassif has also since acknowledged he is dating former Miss Nevada USA Helen Salas.
