Below are way more before they were famous photos including one of Adrienne Maloof before plastic surgery, well before most of the plastic surgeries (she looked much nicer by the way), plus some high school photos of Taylor Armstrong, bikini shots of Kyle Richards and Lisa, Camille Grammer before she became a villain and a much younger foxier Kim Richards.
The same day TMZ reported Camille’s actions to quit the hit show might simply be a tactic to force Bravo to give her a good edit on the upcoming reunion show, she gave two new interviews to both PEOPLE magazine and the Ellen DeGeneres Show. In her PEOPLE interview, Camille opens up about the backlash she has received since doing the show.
“It’s like a runaway train that’s out of control,” Camille, 42, says of the negative feedback. “I’m going through this divorce in my private life, and this on top of everything else has been really hurtful. I don’t know where it’s coming from.”
And when it comes to the 4 nannies for her two kids controversy, Camille claims it was all estranged husband Kelsey Grammer’s idea. “Even the nanny controversy, I have to laugh about it, because that was Kelsey’s decision to hire the four nannies. And I’m taking all this heat for it,” says Camille. “It’s almost as if, on the show, he had nothing to do with our life together. We were married! We made these decisions together.”
And in her interview with Ellen DeGeneres, scheduled to air today, Camille, who was shown kissing her married friend Nick Stabile on the lips on Thursday’s episode of the BH Housewives, reveals how she discovered Kelsey was cheating on her. And no, it wasn’t through her medium BFF pal Allison DuBois.
“A mutual friend called me and said, ‘I don’t like what he’s doing to you and I don’t like the timing because you’re still in the middle of shooting a reality show.’ And then I called him that night and texted him. No answer from him,” Camille recalls. “I waited for three hours and then he called me and said, ‘I don’t want to be married anymore.’” She adds that she and Kelsey no longer speak, but communicate through text and email.
When it comes to her costar Kyle Richards, who she has repeatedly butted heads with all season, Camille reveals she and Kyle are friends, and get this, she even “loves” Kyle.
“I love Kyle, we do get along,” Camille insists. “We are friends, believe it or not. But at times, you know, our personalities just clash. So there’s one day we love each other and we’re laughing and going to dinner, and then two days after, we’re fighting about something ridiculous.” Let’s hope Kyle got the friendship memo.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE’S TWO NEW INTERVIEWS?
UPDATE – In the interview with Ellen, Camille adds that her only reason to do a 2nd season would be to redeem her image.”Right now, as everybody knows, I’m going through a divorce,” she says. “If I would do [another season], it would be to try to change my image – to try to change it around and have people see the other side of me that you don’t see on TV.”
Though Bravo has yet to officially confirm there will be a second season (very likely as the ratings have been great), a source close to production confirms to THR that Camille has decided she will not be returning either way.
Camille, 42, has found herself on the receiving end of a lot of backlash whether it be regarding her four nannies for two children, her crazy friendships with married tennis partner Nick Stabile and medium from hell Allison Dubois, and her now infamous feud with costar Kyle Richards.
In fact, Camille recently graced the cover of Life & Style magazine after being declared the most hated housewife ever. THR, a very reputable media outlet, does not give a reason for Camille’s decision to leave the show.
But we have to wonder if this could be also related to the reunion show which was taped yesterday (Tuesday) in Los Angeles. While Bravo attempts to keep the details of the reunion under wraps until it airs, below are the tweets from Andy Cohen and some of the housewives regarding the taping -
“Giggy and I just wrapped an INCREDIBLE reunion show! Wow” – Andy
“Omg. Such a long day! Too much to even begin to get in to :/… I feel like I’ve been shagged thru a hedge backwards :)” – Kyle
“Ok …all I can say is wow…it’s over! Goodnight fellow housewives,a lot to deal with today.sleep well everybody x x” – Lisa
“Good Morning! Yesterday was such an emotional day filming the reunion. Hoping for a sunny LA day to help shake off the blues.” – Taylor
Bravo has yet to announce the airing date of the reunion show but we will let you know once they do. And finally, the following blind item was posted on the CDAN website yesterday via Bravo Gossip -
“This controversial Real Housewives star is about to have some added drama in her life. The tabloids are working overtime to get a bunch of stories about our Housewife and her glory days as a hooker. Not anyone in New York or New Jersey.”
It seems to be referencing Camille Grammer, who is long rumored to have been a past escort. Yikes.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE QUITTING THE SHOW?
UPDATE – Hours after the HollywoodReporter first broke the news, TMZ is also confirming Camille has indeed quit the show. In fact, Camille has reportedly lawyered up and is now discussing a “settlement” with Bravo. We’re guessing the lawyering up is so that she can get out of her contract with the network.
As for the reason she is quitting, sources close to Camille reveal she is upset with the way she’s been portrayed on the show. And that she did the show because her soon to be ex-husband Kelsey Grammer wanted her to, but now that she’s a single mom, “circumstances have changed.”
UPDATE #2 - A rep for Camille tells PEOPLE “she has not made any decision yet about whether she’s returning to the show or not.” The rep adds, “She taped a very explosive reunion episode yesterday, where people are going to see a different side of her than they’ve seen before.” TMZ and THR are two highly reliable media outlets so we’re are going to go with what they are reporting. The comments of Camille’s rep probably has to do with legalities and the fact that she is still under contract with Bravo.
According to TMZ, Kelsey has formally asked a judge to grant the divorce decree asap! The legal process is apparently called “bifurcation.” Kelsey is requesting his divorce be rushed and for the money issues aka division of assets to be dealt with later.
Under California law, divorces can become final 6 months after the petition is filed. Since Camille filed on July 1, 2010, Kelsey will be free to marry his mistress fiance Kayte Walshon Saturday, January 1, that is if the judge grants his request for the bifurcation.
So how does Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, feel about this? A friend of Camille’s tells TMZ she “is not surprised but continues to be disappointed at Kelsey’s immature and disrespectful behavior.”
In other BH news, TMZ is also reporting that Lisa Vanderpump was involved in an attack on Christmas eve. It all started when Lisa, her husband Ken Todd, Los Angeles news reporter Robert Kovacik and some others were having dinner at the Beverly Hills Polo Lounge when a drunk man walked up to her table and began berating her.
Reporter Robert then stood up and asked the man to stop, which led to the man punching Robert and shoving Lisa’s husband Ken to the floor. Robert reportedly received two dozen stitches for his busted lip from Dr. Paul Nassif, who also stars on the RHOBH. TMZ adds that Robert has since filed criminal charges against his assailant.
No word yet on if Giggy’s innocent eyes were forced to witness the attack. And finally, Kyle Richards, along with her family, spent the Christmas holiday visiting Aspen. Even more interesting, it seems Kyle is still BFFs with Faye Resnick despite the strong protest from her frenemy costar/morality police Camille. Kyle and Faye were photographed yesterday shopping in Aspen. Those photos are below -
SO TELL US – STILL NOT FEELING BAD FOR CAMILLE YET? NOT EVEN A TEENY BIT?
“If somebody’s husband is cheating on them, she would know it.” – Camille Grammer#FamousLastWords.
On an awesome scale of 1 – 10, I would say last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hillswas about a 9. On an insanity scale, maybe a 20. But after watching the ‘Dinner From Hell‘ episode, I’m thoroughly convinced that Camille Grammer is an evil genius. I mean, how else can we explain her ability to find someone more obnoxious, more delusional and more despicable than she is? Sitting next to the medium nut job aka Allison Dubois almost made her seem human and not like the monster she is. Something tells me Bravo is calling up Allison as I write this, trying to sign her up for the next season of the Real Housewives of NYC.
With that said, let’s get right to the recap! The episode begins with a cutesy useless scene of Lisa and her hubby going for a drive. Moving right along to Camille and Taylor having lunch. Camille reveals she hasn’t hung out with most of her costars since the NYC drama and tells Taylor she is planning a dinner get together for all the ladies. Camille reveals she’s “cautiously optimistic” about the dinner, you know, because she’s an innocent little victim and has zero parts in any of the drama that has taken place.

The episode is appropriately titled ‘The Dinner From Hell‘ as Camille invites the wives and special guests to a lavish dinner party at her Malibu home, but the meal turns into a pressure cooker when the guests dig up a bitter subject, and digs are thrown leading to a fiery showdown — intensifying the friction between Camille and Kyle.
Could it finally be time to throw in the towel and accept that some friendships aren’t meant to be? Find out tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.
In an interview with TV Guide, Kyle Richardswas asked about the dinner party and here’s what she had to say – “Oh, gosh. I can’t give away details, but with us, it’s certainly a case of oil and water. Every time we try to fix our issues, they seem to get worse. And I didn’t think it could get worse than our fight in New York. There were some digs thrown, and I had a friend with me who got defensive. And Camille had a friend there who is pretty much a villain. It all just blew up from there.” Should be a good episode.
Watch What Happens Live – Andy Cohen and Bravo end their 5 days a week experiment today as the last episode this week of WWHL airs tonight. The guests are Kyle Richards and Denise Richards.
One preview clip doesn’t do tonight’s episode justice so we’re posting two clips below. Enjoy!
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
A week after Star magazine first published the report of Camille Grammer’s sex tapes made with husband Kelsey Grammer, Camille is now publicly denying the claims.
Camille, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, tells TMZ she’s fed up with the reports. “Quite simply, no tape exists of Kelsey and I having sex. And tabloid reports of me using it as a negotiating tool are a lie,” she says.
According to the Star report, not only do the tapes exist but Camille has been showing them to friends and was planning to use them as leverage in her divorce proceedings.
Camille adds, “Contrary to reports, I am proud of the way Kelsey and I are handling the divorce — with a shared concern for the kids and with great respect for each other and what we had together.”
In a very odd and unusual move, TMZ posted the following under Camille’s comments. “TMZ has no reason to doubt what Camille says about the sex tape, but we know she’s been telling anyone who would listen how bitter she is over the way Kelsey has handled the split.”
Is TMZ implying she’s a liar? Moving right along. Speaking of Camille, it seems her costar Kyle Richards is completely done with her.
UsWeekly caught up with Kyle at a recent event and when asked about her relationship with Camille today, Kyle said, “I actually, in spite of everything did try to reach out to Camille and she didn’t respond, so…I’m done. I’m done.”
