Every season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starts with a tragedy. Since we all know the inevitable conclusion, we get to watch the action unfold as the women are brought to their destiny. Season 1 it was Camille Grammer's divorce, Season 2 it was Taylor Armstrong's divorce (and her husband's subsequent suicide), and Season 3, which just debuted on Monday, is going to be all about the the fractures in Adrienne Maloof's relationship with her husband, Dr. Paul Nassif.
As we're watching them get closer and closer to the brink on the tube, they've already come to a settlement in their divorce in real life. The two aren't disclosing the details of their deal, but their rep has confirmed that they have one. "There has been so much untrue negative innuendo and destructive rumors beyond our control," the couple said in a statement. "We want the best for each other and we're confident we can help each other make a continuing positive impact with our children ... Our goal is for our children to have stable and nurturing relationships with both of us so we can all find as much happiness as possible."
That seems ironic considering just a month ago, Maloof was making claims that Nassif abused their three children, claims that turned out to be false. I must say, I'm glad things ended neatly and without further unfounded messiness or allegations of wrongdoing. After all, when it comes to the Housewives, we want all of the drama to be on camera.

The sensuously striking Jude Law has been named "Sexiest Man of the Year" by People magazine--a statement few would disagree with.
"What's he all about?" People asks in its latest issue, in a reference to Law's latest, Alfie. "Supernatural good looks, supersize talent--and so nice, he might just kiss you if you have the nerve to ask."
That is, if this British heartthrob was single. The 31-year-old actor divorced Sadie Frost, his wife of almost six years, in September of last year and is currently dating his Alfie co-star Sienna Miller. Law recently told The Associated Press he is nothing like the womanizing character he portrays in his new romantic comedy.
"I grew up, I suppose, always looking for commitment and looking for a relationship, and that's why I got married so young," Law told the AP. "And I'm in another relationship now. So that just seems to be my pattern."
Law, who was raised in South London, has come a long way since starring in the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat more than 15 years ago. In fact, some are speculating the blonde It-guy is on the brink of becoming overexposed, with no less than six movies in theaters this fall.
His starring roll began in August with the sci-fi thriller Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. He has since been seen in I (Heart) Huckabees and Alfie and will make appearances in the upcoming drama-romance Closer, the family feature Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator.
Nonetheless, there's no arguing that Law is the hot commodity du jour. Naomi Watts, who starred with Law in Huckabees, describes Law as "the most beautiful man who ever walked the Earth."
And Watts isn't Law's only co-star singing his praises. His Alfie co-stars Nia Long, Susan Sarandon and Marisa Tomei even admitted to all but drooling over the hunky thesp in Hollywood.com's own video interviews. But hey, don't take our word for it--check out our interview video with Law and his costars, and see for yourself why he's the sexiest man alive.
