Adrienne Maloof is only looking forward.

"I am in a great place and so excited about the future," the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star exclusively tells E! News. "I am working on some huge projects for television and also concentrating on producing a film, so it's a very dynamic time right now."

But doesn't she miss the life she was enjoying as a castmember of one of the most attention-getting reality-TV shows around?

"I am grateful for the platform Housewives gave me," she admits. "It was a fantastic experience, but now it's time for something new."

In addition to her upcoming small- and big-screen projects, Maloof is working on a jewelry line for Bloomingdales, which she is "thrilled about."

"I can't wait for everybody to see it," she added. (And since she knows a little something about bling, we can't wait, either.)

So, overall, life is "fantastic" for Maloof right now. 

Perhaps not least in part because the divorced mother of three truly has turned a corner. A Real Housewives insider tells us that Maloof has not been in touch with any of her former castmates.

"Adrienne is in a different place now," the insider says, "mixing with a different crowd. [She] has her sights set on bigger and better things than Housewives."

Maloof has also rekindled her romance with Sean Stewart, who is 19 years her junior. "Sean and Adrienne support each other and have fun and both understand the world of entertainment," our source says.

The couple were out Thursday night having dinner with Sean's dad and stepmom, Rod Stewart and Penny Lancaster; and his sister, Kimberly Stewart, and her new flame, Harry Styles.

A different crowd, indeed.
