After nine years , three kids and two reality shows together, Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif are throwing in the towel on their marriage.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her Dr. 90210 hubby bickered nonstop throughout the first two seasons of the hit show, but it usually seemed good-natured.

"There is no other person," a source explained to RadarOnline. "It's for a variety of reasons that they are contemplating separation. Adrienne was dragged through the dirt during filming of the upcoming season, and it really wore on her. Paul and Adrienne have always fought, it's how they were as a couple. However, at this point, they realize that they are just want very different things, and neither one of them is happy in the marriage."

Maloof herself offered a vague explanation pointing to the couple's three sons. "I'm so sorry that this is happening but my children are my life and sometimes we need to do what's best for them," she told RadarOnline.

"It's an unfortunate situation but, I have to have my kids' best interest at heart."

Nassif spent the weekend tweeting about the Summer Olympics but has not yet commented on the split.

The couple plans to file for legal separation early this week. They wed in 2002.
