It's been several seasons since Adrienne Maloof gave up her full-time role on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," but she's been plenty busy. With more time to focus on other ventures, the entrepreneur decided it was time to get back to her roots.
Adrienne, 54, comes from a long line of hard-working people. Her father, George Maloof, instilled in her a work ethic and the importance of giving back. In an interview with International Business Times, Adrienne said her family has been thriving in business “for over 150 years.” She added that during that time they’ve always made it a point to “take care of our employees” as well as others — a tradition she still takes seriously to this day. Adrienne, a self-proclaimed firm believer in karma, told IBT that, in her opinion, we exist for four key reasons — “to be successful, to do what we need in life, to help people grow their businesses and, most importantly, to give back.”
