Following her cameo role on CBS sitcom $#*! My Dad Says, Camille, 42, has now been tapped by CNN to serve as a fashion commentator to help cover the Oscars’ red carpet for CNN’s live Oscar arrivals special, ‘Showbiz Tonight: Road Gold.’
Yes, next Sunday on Feb. 27th, Camille will don a microphone alongside regular ‘Showbiz Tonight’ hosts AJ Hammer and Brooke Anderson, to candidly discuss the pre-ceremony parade of fashions.
“We can’t wait to get Camille’s unabashed take on Hollywood’s biggest night,” said a CNN exec producer of the network’s broadcast.
In other BH news, following reports that Kim Richards is likely leaving the show, Bravo has been actively casting for her maybe replacement.
It now seems Bravo might not have to look too far as actress Denise Richards (no relation to Kim), who appeared on Watch What Happens Live a while back, is actually voicing her interest in joining the show.
When UsWeekly asked Denise, 40 (she’s 40?), at a fashion show on Wednesday if she’d consider being a part of the Bravo cast, she answered, “Heck yeah I would! It’s one of my favorite shows!”
In fact, Denise already has favorites on the cast. “I have two,” said Denise. “I love Lisa [Vanderpump] and Kyle [Richards].”
Denise, who used to be married to Charlie Sheen and has two daughters with him, would definitely make great TV no? Here’s to hoping the Bravo honchos are paying attention.
And finally, Kyle Richards is currently on vacation in Mexico with her family and BFF Faye Resnick. And yesterday, Kyle tweeted the bikini photo of herself below with the caption – “Disclaimer: Had to buy this bathing suit. Forgot mine. Yes, I need more sunblock.”

Camille admits that while filming the first season of the hit show, things got so difficult, to the point that she decided to leave the show. “I don’t know if I can say this, but I quit at one point. I did,” said Camille. “Because it was too much. I didn’t know how much I could expose at the time. I was holding a lot back because I had known for a while that things were not right between my husband and I.”
So how long did she quit the show for? “I quit for, you know, a couple of weeks,” she said. “And actually Kelsey called me and said, “You have an obligation to do the show. You have to finish the show.” So I said, okay. He also asked me to come to the Tonys.”
When it comes to her current relationship with Kyle Richards, Camille reveals the two are in a better place. So had she ever fought with Kyle before filming the show? “I met Kyle only once before I started the show. I only knew her husband,” answered Camille. This seems to conflict with previous statements made on the show by Kyle stating the two were friends.
As for season 2, Camille reveals she is still undecided though E! News reported this week that she will definitely be returning.
In other news, Camille is now revealing she will not be in attendance for ex-husband Kelsey Grammer’s wedding to Kayte Walsh. Camille tells PEOPLE she wasn’t invited, and would not have attended anyways.
“I don’t want to be involved with the wedding, not at all,” said Camille. “But I don’t begrudge him his happiness.”
Camille adds that while 6-year-old son Jude will be at the wedding, 9-year-old daughter Mason will not be in attendance. “My daughter has a talent show that day that she’s been working on for two months now,” Camille said to PEOPLE. “I told her, ‘Mason, you can go. Please, if you want to go to your Daddy’s wedding, please do,’ and she said, ‘No, Mommy. I want to go to my talent show.’ “
Meanwhile, Kelsey, 55, was photographed soaking up some sun in Miami this week with his 29-year-old fiance Kayte. Some of those non cringe-worthy at all photos are below. Kelsey’s wedding to Kate is scheduled to take place by the end of this month.
And finally, Camille made a cameo appearance on CBS sitcom $#*! My Dad Says Thursday night while Kyle’s husband Mauricio Umansky also made an appearance on Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing the same night.
This is despite getting her lawyers to get her out of her contract with Bravo after being declared the most hated housewife ever. However things have since taken a turn in Camille’s favor as the actions & behavior of some of her fellow housewives have without a doubt overshadowed hers.
“Camille is coming back; she just wants the public to feel sorry for her a little longer because of the whole Kelsey [Grammer] thing, so she’s not announcing it yet,” reveals a Bravo insider to E!
And what about Kim Richards? “It’s 99 percent certain that she won’t do season two,” explains the source.
It seems Kim wants nothing else to do with the show following her major blowout with sister Kyle Richards on the season finale. “There is so much more going on than what was shown on TV,” dishes the RHOBH insider. “There was a lot of tension building up over the years, they have a complicated relationship.”
As for the status of Kim’s relationship with Kyle today, the source reveals they are still working on it. “Kim, Kathy [Hilton] and Kyle all love each other, but their dynamic is complicated,” adds the source.
As for who might be replacing Kim, TMZ reported a while back that Bravo is talking to Brandi Glanville, Jeanie Buss, and Jennifer Flavin Stallone. It has also been rumored that Bravo is looking to get rid of Taylor Armstrong though we’re not so sure Bravo or any network for that matter would want to get rid of their resident sh*t starter pot stirrer.
And airing tonight on Bravo at 10/9c is a special director’s cut of the now infamous dinner from hell. A preview clip of the ladies in the limo looking at Camille‘s porn photos from her past is below -

Just in case that whole Bravo housewives thingy doesn’t quite work out, it seems Camille Grammer is looking ahead when it comes to her “career.”
According to TMZ, Camille filmed a cameo role on CBS hit show $#*! My Dad. And get this, Camille plays a character named “Camille” who stars on a reality show called “Real Divorcees of San Diego.” Camille’s method acting will reportedly be featured on the show’s season finale.
Camille, 42, is no stranger to acting, having starred in soft porn movies such as The Naked Detective and New York Nights. Some photos of Camille filming her guest spot are below.
TMZ also reports that Kelsey Grammer’s 27-year-old daughter Spencer Grammer tied the knot with James Hesketh yesterday at City Hall in New York City. Present at the wedding was Kelsey, 55, and his fiancée Kayte Walsh, 29. Spencer is also an actress and currently stars on ABC Family’s Greek.
And finally, the web was abuzz this week following a report by RadarOnline in which Spencer Pratt told the site that Heidi Montagwas actively pursuing joining the cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Spencer even claimed they had a meeting planned with Bravo execs while Heidi took to her twitter page to declare – “Watch out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Here comes Heidi.”
We didn’t report on the story because for one it sounded just as ridic as the story that came out last week claiming Camille might be joining the RHONYC cast. Plus we also had a ban on writing about the famewhores known as Heidi and Spencer unless the story about them ends up being pretty darn interesting and authentic, such as what you are about to read below.
This story immediately took an interesting turn when Andy Cohen first denied it earlier this week by tweeting a simple “Hell no” when asked if he would ever consider adding Speidi to the BH cast.
Things then took a turn for the better when Andy proceeded to let us know how he really felt about the two dingbats during the Thursday airing of Watch What Happens Live.
“Professionally, I’m not supposed to discuss any negotiations so I have to parse my words here,” said Andy on WWHL. “That trash is delusional and I would sooner stab … knives into my own eyes than see her on this network.” Andy then went on to award Heidi the “Jackhole of the Week.”
Mazel to you Andy. Mazel.

Taylor has been blamed for causing the two major fights that took place on the show this season, including the season ending fight between sisters Kim& Kyle Richards.
In a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, Taylor reveals being on reality television is harder than she imagined. “It’s not easy having your life on television for people to judge you and feel like they can evaluate your life because you put it out there,” she said. “It’s been a little harder than I thought. Sometimes people aren’t very kind.” And we wonder if “some people” would include herself.
As for Taylor’s regrets on the show, she is now singing a completely different tune than the one she arrogantly sang on the reunion show weeks ago when she took numerous cheap shots at Kim.
“I feel pretty good about everything – except my conflict with Kim,” said Taylor. “I wasn’t really aware that she was going through as many personal challenges as she was, because I wasn’t really privy to that. So I feel bad about our conflicts. I wish I’d known then what I know now. But it’s life. So I wish her the best and I’m absolutely here if she needs anything.”
Taylor also pretends reveals she’s uncertain if she’ll return for a second season. “Every other day I think, ‘I just want to go back to being a snack mom at school,’ ” she said. “Back then my biggest concern in my week was whether I had to be room mom. So we’ll see.” Oh poor Taylor. Poor poor Taylor.
In other BH news, TMZ is reporting the seemingly never ending divorce proceedings between Camille Grammer and Kelsey Grammer has finally ended today. A judge in L.A. County Superior Court signed the divorce decree. The Grammers were able to come to a divorce agreement after Kelsey agreed to post $2.3 million, protecting Camille’s pension rights against any new spouse.
Camille released the following statement – “I have a great many mixed feelings about today — I’m sad for what was, yet excited about the road ahead… What I most hope is that Kelsey and I can improve our communications and truly co-parent our two wonderful children, and I wish Kelsey and Kayte love and happiness in their new marriage.”
With this divorce granted, Kelsey is now free to marry his fiance Kayte Walsh at the end of this month, as planned.
And finally, a youtube user, RealCityHousewife, created the following video below, in what can only be described as the most awesome Housewives video ever. Enjoy -

According to a new report by the I’mNotObessed website,Jill Zarin is feeling pretty generous lately.
The site reports Jill, star of the Real Housewives of New York, recently gifted herself and each of her follow NYC Housewives castmates a Kwiat leather and diamond bracelets.
And it all has to do with charity. Kwiat, the NYC-based diamond company, partnered with Charity:Water to launch an exclusive water drop collection with 100% of the profits from all sales of the new collection going to help fund Charity:Water’s mission of providing clean drinking water to people in underdeveloped cities and nations around the world.
No word yet on how this story of Jill’s generosity made it’s way to the media. In other NYC news, two days after Andy Cohendenied the widely spread rumor of Camille Grammer joining the Real Housewives of NYC cast, some are now wondering if Jill Zarin is responsible for the rumor.
Reason? Well, the original story came from the NY Post and referenced Jill.
“Insiders said that one option to up the local drama might be to bring Beverly Hills housewife Camille Grammer to New York, the location of her divorce drama with Kelsey Grammer, who is soon to marry girlfriend Kayte Walsh. A source said Grammer hasn’t been approached by New York producers, but that Zarin has invited her to hang out with the Housewives.”
Interesting. And finally, RadarOnline is reporting that Bravo’s decision to postpone the airing of the 4th season of the show is not sitting too well with the cast members. Some of the housewives were forced to cancel their premiere parties, their sponsors, and even had to send notes to all those who were invited.
“All the cast members were upset when they heard the news, but it was especially hard for Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan because they were forced to cancel their premiere parties,” a source close to the situation revealed.
The delay also surprised talk show host Rachel Ray and her producers, who now have to make new plans for a planned show “and decide if they should hold the filmed segment for later broadcast.”

Lisa covers the latest issue of UsWeekly as both she and her husband Ken Todd reveal Cedric “absolutely betrayed” them. According to the couple, Cedric lived in their Beverly Hills mansion for over a year and a half rent free only to snap when confronted about his laziness, while also trying to extort money from them.
Ken tells UsWeekly, “[Cedric] said, ‘I’m not asking for money, but I haven’t got any, and I’ve been offered to sell my story to magazines. I can say anything I want.” Ken adds that Cedric also threatened violence. “He said, ‘The last time I was this angry, I stabbed my father,’” says Ken, who filed a police report after the conversation.
“I will sue if he sells any stories about me,” a heartbroken Lisa tells UsWeekly. “I feel absolutely betrayed.” Lisa adds that Cedric changed once the cameras came around and always “wanted to be the seventh housewife.” The twitter bio of Cedric does read, “Model actor and the 7th Real housewife of Beverly Hills.”
Meanwhile Cedric also gave out his own exclusive interview to E! News during which he leveled his allegations against Lisa and Ken. According to Cedric, he was working for the couple in the UK when they invited him to come to the US. Sensing a “great opportunity,” he agreed, living with them for six months and then moving out.
Cedric states he was however still living with Lisa when she auditioned to appear on the RHOBH. So when Bravo called Lisa back to ask her to be on the show, they asked if Cedric was still living with her, and she lied and said yes. According to Cedric, Lisa then asked him to move back in.
“I didn’t need a place to stay,” Cedric says. “I knew [Real Housewives] it could be an opportunity that opens doors…I always wanted to leave [their house].”
Cedric adds that things took a turn for the worst on the last day of filming. “Ken and Lisa changed. When I moved in, I noticed a difference…They were talking to me like…I was an accessory to Lisa,” he said. And below is a Jan. 15 tweet from Cedric -
In other BH news, TMZ is reporting that the lawyers for Kelsey Grammer and Camille Grammer were able to reach a deal today in their divorce case. Both parties have agreed to submit the signed settlement by Thursday, and Kelsey will be free to marry his mistress fiance Kayte Walsh by the end of this month.
While Camille didn’t get the $10 million she was asking for, Kelsey did agree to post a $2 million bond for the next 18 months, to protect Camille’s interest in his pension. The issues of property and money will be resolved at a later date.
And as for those ridiculous pesky rumors that Camille might be joining the Real Housewives of NYC, Andy Cohen denied them today tweeting “Not true by a mile,” when a fan asked about the rumors. For one, the RHONYC finished filming season 4 over a week ago so the rumor didn’t really hold any merit.

Just days following the airing of the reunion episode, Bravo has already began casting for season 2 and looking to add some new housewives. The reason? Camille Grammer and Kim Richards might not be returning to the show. Camille has expressed uncertainty about coming back and Kyle Richards recently stated Kim might not return.
Meanwhile, a report by E! News states Bravo is looking to axe Taylor Armstrongbecause her season 1 storyline failed to impress. So with the likelihood that three of the cast members will be leaving, Bravo is currently in talks with three potential new housewives.
First up is Jeanie Buss, daughter of Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss and an executive of the team. Jeanie is also the long time girlfriend of Lakers head coach Phil Jackson. Sources tell TMZ Jeanie recently met up with Bravo execs and producers even went to a recent Lakers game to observe her daily routine. Jeanie is reportedly very interested in joining the show, which would make for a great storyline as current housewife Adrienne Maloof’s family owns the rival Sacramento Kings.
Next up is Jennifer Flavin Stallone, wife of famous actor Sylvester Stallone. Some sources tell TMZ Jennifer is currently being recruited by Bravo to appear on the next season, while some other sources tell TMZ Jennifer hasn’t spoken to anyone from Bravo about signing on.
And finally, Brandi Glanville, ex-wife of actor Eddie Cibrian, has also been contacted by Bravo for next season. Brandi’s casting would make a lot of sense as she was just photographed this week hitting up a Beverly Hills restaurant with none other than Cedric Martinez aka Lisa Vanderpump’s former gay pet house guest. A photo of the two is below.
“He’s my gay best friend! I’ve known him for 16 years,” said Brandi to E! News about her friendship with Cedric. And yes, we foresee major messiness if Brandi is indeed added to the show.
