Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Camille Grammer has had a very rough month, and that is putting it very, VERY mildly. The reality star was diagnosed with early stage endometrial cancer, underwent surgery, and then suffered alleged physical abuse at the hands of her (now ex, thankfully) boyfriend is Dimitri Charalambopoulos as she was recovering from her procedure.

The reality star hasn't remained mum on her scary situation. Camille has taken out a restraining order against Dimitri, voiced her anger on Twitter, and now she's appeared on daytime television to talk about her experiences. Good for you, girl. No need to sweep anything under the rug!


Us Weekly reports on Camille's appearance yesterday on Dr. Oz. With Memet she discussed her radical hysterectomy, managed to take a dig at ex-husband Kelsey Grammer, and spoke frankly about what happened in the days when she was supposed to be recovering. 

Camille shared that she's feeling better after first hearing the "c" word and is healing nicely. She told Dr. Oz"It's been four weeks today, a month ago. I'm feeling great. I have to say, once in a while I'll get a little pain here and there, but I'm walking around. I was able to go trick-or-treating with my kids and my life is moving forward and I'm feeling very well, thank you."

Of first learning of her health scare, Camille admits, "My heart sank. You know, you think about your children, am I gonna make it, I want to be alive for them. My kids — my ex-husband hasn't seen the kids since July so I'm mom. I'm there. So I really needed to be here for them. My son doesn't really understand it that well, but my daughter said, mom, I'm so glad you're getting surgery 'cause then the cancer's gonna be all gone."

The pain, of course, didn't end with her operation, and Camille touches on how she felt after Dimitri's alleged behavior. She reveals, "Oh, it was just terrible 'cause, you know, right after any kind of procedure, you want to be surrounded by love and you need good healing vibes and positive energy around you. I was physically abused and assaulted by this person and it was very traumatizing. But now, I'm working with a therapist and I'm going to be okay. I'm doing well."

I'm glad to hear that Camille is getting the help she needs to get through this ordeal!
