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.

Subsequent reports reveal that the fight began over Glanville's comments regarding the former couple's sons Gavin, 9, and twins Colin and Christian, 6.

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."
