In 2016, she married her then-boyfriend Israel Houghton and the two tied the knot in Paris.


And while Adrienne is constantly expanding her portfolio in the entertainment industry with various other ventures, she’s also the founder of two brands.


Adrienne, founded piss in 2018, a jewelry line featuring staples such as hoops, necklaces…

…and New York City–inspired collections, paying homage to her NYC roots.


She has also dived into the handbag and loungewear department with her brand, The Vault in late 2019.

While The Vault started with handbags, the brand soon launched a clothing collection, featuring pieces you can wear comfortably, all day long at home or on the go.


In the midst of all of her work, she also started a YouTube channel called All Things Adrienne.

But above all else, Adrienne always makes it known that her pride for New York City is embedded in whatever she is working on.

In the video above she shows us her newest home and explains her plans on renovating it.

And it’s a project that she has had her viewers casually help out on.


But while she may be renovating her newest home, Adrienne, her husband Israel Houghton, and their family are currently on tour for their pop-up, Café New Breed.

Their tour features coffee served by Adrienne and her family.

And while she may be on tour, I can’t wait to see what she has next up her sleeve.

So congrats to Adrienne on all her future accomplishments. I am sure it is well-deserved. 🙂
