She’s back! Camille Grammer’s return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (even in her reduced role) brings with it Camille’s trademarked tsk-tsking of other housewives’ poor behavior, complete with coquettish shoulder shrugs. Or at least, let’s hope it does! Even though she appeared for mere moments on this week’s episode, Camille has some choice words for those who are questioning Yolanda Foster’s illness (cough, cough: Taylor Armstrong!).
Camille’s brush with her own serious health issues has given her some perspective on the situation. She reflects, “In September of 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Endometrial Cancer. Luckily my cancer was caught at this stage. My treatment required surgery, chemo, and radiation therapy under the expert care of Pedro Ramirez at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.”

“While I laid in my chemo bed,” continues Camille, “I said over and over to Dr. Ramirez, my nurses, and other caregivers, ‘We have to get the word out about these cancers! No one is talking about them and that needs to change.’ A year later an angel reached out to me via Twitter and asked if I would be interested as a spokesperson for the Foundation for Women’s Cancer. Of course I said yes. Since then I’ve been honored and excited to serve as a spokesperson for the foundation and chairperson of the 2015 and the 2016 National Race to End Woman’s Cancer.”
As a 2-year cancer survivor, Camille explains her discomfort with other housewives questioning Yolanda’s struggle. She shares in her blog, “Having been through my battle with cancer, I feel uncomfortable for Yolanda. Listening to the chatter questioning the validity of Yolanda’s illness is troubling to me.”
“Lyme disease is very debilitating. Being from the East Coast I know Lyme disease is quite common and may lay dormant and may produce flu-like symptoms, as well as neurological issues. It’s in poor taste to question anyone’s illness diagnosed through specific testing by their doctor. I pray that she finds a cure for her Lyme disease and starts feeling much better.”
Well, it looks like Camille is on Team Lyme for now! It will be interesting to see how things get stirred up next week when the big M-WORD (for Munchausen!) is tossed out there by none other than My-Lips-Were-Made-For-Talkin’ Lisa Rinna.
