In a statement to TMZ, Camille states: “Some joking remarks I made to Kyle Richards got picked up and caused my ex-husband great embarrassment and for that I sincerely apologize. While the media added words and blew it out of proportion, I acknowledge my part in this and regret my remarks.”
She adds, “I offered a 50/50 physical split with joint custody and was soundly rejected… Now he will only communicate through lawyers and others and I fear the message we’re sending our children.” Well surely telling the world their father has a small package can’t be good for the kids.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE’S APOLOGY? DO YOU THINK IT’S SINCERE?
After giving out low blows to her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer earlier this year (she revealed he was a cross-dresser), it seems the Bravo reality star is still very bitter over her divorce…perhaps rightfully so.
The latest low blow Camille, 42, dishes out to Kelsey, father of her two kids, is by publicly stating he has a small err package. Yes she went there. This all stems from a RHOBH season 2 promo clip released by Bravo, in which Camille could be heard saying — “Big hands, big feet, big disappointment”
TMZ then caught up with Camille Tuesday night in New York City during which she revealed she was indeed talking about her ex-husband Kelsey. “Yes. It was a lot like that. I had that for 13 years, unfortunately,” said Camille. Yikes. Poor poor Kelsey has yet to respond to the latest.
Meanwhile, RadarOnline is reporting Camille has developed a very close friendship with new RHOBH extra cast member/trouble maker Brandi Glanville.
While the show has yet to premiere, Brandi is already making her mark thanks to the preview clip which shows her accusing Kim Richards of using “crystal meth,” to which Kim retorts by calling her a “slut pig.” Fortunately for Brandi, she has found an ally in Camille.
“I like Brandi, and I enjoy her company a lot, actually,” Camille tells Radar. “I think she speaks her mind and she’s a riot. She makes no excuses. She says what she feels and I like that genuine realness she has. It’s refreshing.”
Camille also adds that the two ladies connected on what else other than their widely publicized divorces! “We discussed our divorces and connected,” Camille says. “She and I both went through a very difficult time, and I think we sort of bonded. She’s a year ahead of me in her divorce, and she’s a strong as nails.”
To close out the interview, Camille promises the new season of RHOBH, which premieres Sep. 5, is the most dramatic yet. “All I can say is that there will definitely be more drama than last year,” she says. “There’s so much more and many surprises. You’ve just gotta tune in.”

TELL US – CAMILLE’S LOW BLOW: WELL DESERVED OR TOO LOW?
UPDATE – Kelsey’s new wife Kayte Walsh has now responded to Camille’s comments. Kayte tells TMZ, “Perhaps the fault lies not so much with the member in question but rather with the inspiration at hand.” Well played Kayte?
Kelsey, 56, who is described as a “longtime conservative Republican” made the shocking revelation during an interview with the NY Post.
“I have had a great career and extraordinary opportunities. But I look at my political aspirations as that last piece of my life – where I hope to do something good for people and pay back a little,” said Kelsey.
Kelsey also believes he has the “narcissistic personality” required to succeed in the world of politics. “You certainly have to have a resilient ego,” he added. Oddly enough Kelsey is set to play a fictional Illinois mayor in new drama “Boss” this fall. The Post adds that Kelsey is interested in running for the mayor of New York City in the future.
If it counts for anything, he does have the sleaze factor going for him no?
Meanwhile Kelsey’s ex Camille tweeted a photo yesterday of herself and her costars lunching together. That pic is below!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KELSEY WANTING TO BECOME A POLITICIAN?
According to a new report by TMZ, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille and ex-husband Kelsey recently settled their very nasty custody dispute but make no mistake as the two are still at war. The reason? Sources state the new deal is only temporary.
The new agreement outlines who gets the kids, when and where, etc. Camille will have both kids more than Kelsey, but the agreement accommodates his work schedule. Also, the kids will not be separated.
If you recall, a letter from Kelsey’s attorney mysteriously leaked online earlier this year which showed Kelsey wanted the son to stay with him while their daughter remained with Camille. Kelsey’s attorney accused Camille of leaking the document to TMZ. It also came out last month that Camille accused Kelsey’s older daughter Spencer Grammer of being a spy and asked a judge to ban her from vacationing in one of her homes with Kelsey.
The exes will now look to settle their other lingering issues such as money and permanent custody. Camille is reportedly bitter at the way Kelsey has treated her and the kids, while Kelsey is angry because he feels Camille has been disrespectful to his new wife. Oh the joys of divorce.
While on vacation in Hawaii with her kids, daughter Mason, 9 and son Jude, 6, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star told RadarOnline, “It’s been one year today I filed for divorce, I feel liberated!”
Camille added that she has a lot to be thankful for this 4th of July weekend. “What can be better than being with my kids in Hawaii over the holidays? Nothing!” said Camille. “We’re having the time of our lives. Mason is enjoying hanging out on the beach and dolphin watching. Jude is taking golf lessons with his grandfather and we can barely get him out of the water.”
Camille’s euphoria will likely be short lived as she is getting ready for a nasty custody battle with ex Kelsey. According to court documents, they both plan to testify in the trial though Kelsey has requested a judge seal all documents pertaining to the case. A pretrial hearing has been set for July 27, while the actual custody hearing will take place in August or September.
Last month, Kelsey told Life & Style he expects the custody battle to get ugly. “It’s going to be a long, drawn-out thing,” he revealed. “We’ll be tortured and it will be unpleasant I’m sure, but not on my side.”
When asked about the possibility of a friendship with Camille in the future, Kelsey revealed uncertainty. “I really can’t tell,” he said adding that his main concern is his children. “It’s very hard at this point,” Kelsey added. “I’m not going to say much about that, but I’m going to do my best to make sure my kids are always okay.”
Kelsey wanted Spencer and her new husband to vacation at his posh Hawaii estate but Camille went to block that from happening citing she’s the one who’s been spending a lot of time at the house with their 2 young kids, and Kelsey hasn’t been there for a long time.
If only it ended there as Camille also accuses Spencer of possibly being a spy. Camille states that if Spencer uses the house, she would have access to a lot of personal items/documents related to the divorce and might just steal it. How about taking out the important docs from the home? Just sayin’.
“I am very concerned that Spencer will have access to my personal documents and papers and that these will get read by Spencer and/or turned over to [Kelsey] and his attorneys,” Camille states in the declaration.
It seems Camille won this round as the judge ruled third parties are not allowed to use any of the Grammers’ homes unless both Kelsey and Camille sign off on it. It also appears this might be a tit for tat situation as Camille also stated Kelsey did not allow her to vacation in one of their other homes in the Hamptons.
This all stems from the couple’s bitter divorce battle. Though they are technically divorced, they have yet to divide up their assets. Plus things recently escalated when they both filed for custody of their two kids together.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? IS CAMILLE WRONG FOR BANNING KELSEY’S DAUGHTER FROM USING THE HOME?
In a recent interview on Ryan Seacrest’s Kis-FM Radio Show, Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, expressed her frustrations regarding the custody battle between her and ex-hubby Kelsey, both of whom have filed for full custody of their two children Mason, 9, and Jude, 6.
Camille stated, “It’s been a tough couple weeks.” Even more shocking are Camille’s allegations that Kelsey is only interested in obtaining full custody of their son, Jude, “Kelsey wants to split his two children with Camille — taking his son to live with him and his new wife in Chicago, and leaving his daughter to live with her mother in California.” Yikes! However while Kelsey did send a letter back in April about wanting to split up custody, he ended up filing for custody of both children in May.
Camille, however, would like full custody as well and her RHOBH co-star Kyle Richards agrees that’s how it should be, stating: “They belong with their mom. I’m with her on this.” Further proving that the Camille/Kyle feud that dominated last season is over, Kyle defended Camille against Kelsey in a video released by RumorFix, commenting: “I think he’s done enough damage, he needs to leave her alone now.”
Court papers filed with the Los Angeles Superior Court state the Camille feels Kelsey’s reasons for seeking full custody are an attempt to: “create a false impression to the media and to wrongfully disparage her.” Well, after last season’s RHOBH I’m not sure Kelsey has to stoop so low to encourage any character assignations! Andy Cohen already beat you to the punch, Frasier!
Despite all the recent issues, Camille remains hopeful that she and Kelsey can have an amicable relationship: “I’m really trying to reach out to him and I think it’s very important for us to be cordial to one another to raise our children properly. For me it’s all about our kids and what’s good for them and stability, to know that they’re loved. Hopefully we’ll work toward some kind of agreement on this.”
So what do you think? Do you think Kelsey is really only seeking full custody to ruin Camille’s reputation? Surprised Kyle is defending Camille?
First Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, decided to seek full custody of her two kids with Kelsey on Thursday. This comes weeks after Kelsey originally filed to get primary custody of the children, Mason, 9, and Jude, 6.
In the court papers, Camille claims Kelsey’s filings were “done in order to create a false impression to the media and to wrongfully disparage” her.
Also in the court filing, Camille aims to prevent her kids from spending the summer with Kelsey away from California. “Jude has repeated kindergarten twice,” the documents state. “He is now working with tutors so that he can enter first grade at a public elementary school beginning in the Fall of 2011. In order to get into first grade Jude will have to do a math study program for the entire summer in Los Angeles.”
Things took an uglier turn when sources close to Camille informed TMZ that Kelsey only wanted primary custody of his son, and not his daughter with Camille. Kelsey’s lawyer denied the report to TMZ yesterday.
However, Camille’s camp sent TMZ a document this morning, from April, in which Kelsey does indeed ask for their son Jude to come live with him, while Mason stays with Camille. “Kelsey proposes … Kelsey shall have primary physical custody of Jude and Camille shall have primary physical custody of Mason,” the document states.
Kelsey’s rep, Stan Rosenfield, then told TMZ, “Despite the fact that those connected with Camille Grammer seem to be hand delivering confidential documents to TMZ and other media outlets, we will continue not to make public statements about their private matters which can and apparently does beg for misinterpretation.”
As of the moment, it appears the case will go to trial. The Grammers currently have a temporary arrangement in place until July 2.
