Adrienne Maloof is a “real housewife” with a very real shoe collection. And she’s about to put her footwear knowledge to use and dip her toe into the shoe business. Maloof, star of
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
, doesn’t have a timeline for her self-named shoe line, but said she will focus on high-end women’s shoes early on in her venture. “I’ve always had an interest in shoes mainly because there is nothing more beautiful than a high heel,” Maloof, who claims to own about 200 shoes, told PEOPLE. “I’m 5’3″, so for me heels are empowering, elegant and beautiful. I think most women love shoes. A beautiful pair is shoes looks gorgeous on any woman.” Maloof is in Las Vegas this week for the MAGIC fashion convention, meeting with with potential buyers and potential partners — though several people have already told her they want to partner with her for the line. “I want to make sure that everything is done organically, correctly,” she said. “So if that means I need to take my time, I’m into doing everything the right way. That’s important to me.” Tell us: Would you buy shoes from Adrienne? –Mark Gray
