Adrienne Maloof has some things to get off of her chest.

On last week's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif (now her ex-husband) got into a heated public fight with Brandi Glanville -- exchanging harsh insults and the threat of a lawsuit over unaired comments made by Glanville, 40.

Maloof, 50, sets the record straight with Us Weekly. "From the very beginning of the show, I set parameters and made it clear that my children would not be in the storyline," the hotel entrepreneur tells Us Weekly.

"It is my right, as a mother, to protect the innocence of my young children on my timetable. I am shocked that Brandi, as a mother, would do something so hurtful to gain attention and relevance at the expense of other's."
