Although Camille Grammer is a super polarizing figure among the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans, we are (pretty much) all on the same page when it comes to Kelsey Grammer. He is one of the worst husbands in Real Housewives history. We will never forget him cheating on Camille during Season 1. Since then, Camille has shared that they don’t talk, instead parenting their children through a third party. She also said that he never contacted her when her home burned to the ground in the wildfires.
I can’t decide if Kelsey is a worse husband or a worse ex. Either way, he’s one of the worst. Recently, he referred to Camille as “pathetic” and claimed that she asked for a divorce at his mother’s funeral. Now, Camille’s former RHOBH costar Kim Richards is weighing in on their never-ending drama.
Before the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, most of us probably did not know who Camille Grammer was. We might have had a vague idea she was the wife of Kelsey Grammer, but beyond that, she was relatively anonymous. All that changed in a big way once Camille became a Housewife. By the end of season 1, Camille was well-known to Bravo fans for her snarky personality and feud with co-star Kyle Richards. And then her marriage ended in a very public way, with Kelsey leaving her for another woman.
Since Camille and Kelsey’s split in 2010, she has taken many public digs at him. For his part, Kelsey has largely remained silent, getting in an occasional zinger towards his ex. Kelsey’s mostly zipped lips opened up in a recent interview in which he alleged Camille asked him for a divorce right after he had a heart attack and on the day of his mother’s funeral. In the interview, he referred to Camille as his “third wife.” Kelsey also said the amount of talking Camille has done about him publicly is “pathetic.” Of course, we all knew Camille would answer back. And she has.
There have been some pretty awful husbands in Real Housewives history. Up there with the best of the worst is Kelsey Grammer. He infamously encouraged Camille Grammer to sign on for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so she would have something to do… while he had an affair in New York.
I will never get over watching Camille get ready for the Tony Awards, knowing that their marriage was over and that she had to “put on a brave face,” while hoping they could still work things out in their marriage. Camille was enemy number one that season, yet most viewers couldn’t help feeling for her in that tough situation. Since then, Camille has been very vocal about their relationship. She has poked fun at his…ummm… manhood on multiple occasions. She even claimed that he asked her to use a strap-on in a TMI moment from last season. Camille has also said on many occasions that they solely communicate through a third party instead of co-parenting their two kids together. Now, Kelsey is speaking out.
When former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Camille Grammer Meyer came onto the reality television scene, she was married to Kelsey Grammer. The couple shares two children and a long history of a belligerent legal battle. It actually became difficult to watch Season 1 as Camille discovered the extent of Kelsey’s not affair with another woman. In July 2010, she filed for divorce. Camille sought primary physical custody of their children, along with child support and alimony. She suffered in the wake of public humiliation as well as losing her husband to another woman. To make matters worse, it appeared Kelsey was taking a cowardly route by only communicating with Camille via their attorneys.
It was a very long road for Camille, though her wallet seemed to come out on top in the divorce. By Season 2 of RHOBH, Camille’s past prickly persona seemed to mellow as she began her new life as a single mother. Throughout being treated for cancer, and a violent domestic dispute, the two never spoke. More recently, after the loss of Camille’s home in the Woolsey Fires, Camille shared Kelsey did not reach out. With both parties being guilty of defamation over the years, some new developments have emerged. Camille’s stormy relationship with her ex might finally see a break in the clouds.
When I sat down to write this post, I decided to refresh my recollection regarding the messy divorce between Camille Meyer (f/k/a Camille Grammer) and Kelsey Grammer. First of all, Camille filed for divorce in 2010. I remember watching an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in which Camille and Kelsey awkwardly rode to the Tony Awards together. They were in the back of a limo. Camille was wearing a red dress and looked amazing. Kelsey was mean to her. Soon after it came out that Kelsey was having an affair.
Anyway, to bring this story back to the really important point: how it relates to me… That episode aired 2009/10-ish? Which means I have wasted at least ten years of my life watching this drivel. Forget the Tony that Kelsey was speeding towards in the back of that limo a decade-ish ago! I deserve some sort of lifetime achievement award from Bravo. I will accept my award in the form of Skinnygirl products.
Ahhhh the ladies of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills shed their glam squads and their Bentley’s for an RV
to throw Lisa Vanderpump under and the simple life of campsite massages, and roasting weenies and each other!
I am so confused by this RV. First of all why does it look like sunscreen advertisement outside Spring Break destinations? Why is it so… tacky? Why is Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave the roadside version of a Goodyear Blimp (God – Ms. Calorie Coach would loooooove that comparison!)?
For all you long time Beverly Hills fans, isn’t it great to see more of Camille Grammer this year? Camille shot out of the reality show cannon during Season 1 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as a woman with a take-no-prisoners attitude. She was snarky, unfiltered, elitist and more than a tad mean. You know-the perfect Housewife! And her almost comical feud with Kyle Richards was a driving force during the first season of the show.
After a humbling and humiliating public divorce from Kelsey Grammer-and maybe after seeing the public backlash to her haughty ways, Camille seemed to be a changed woman. She was a little kinder, a little gentler and was not nearly as snide or sarcastic after Season 1. Was this a new Camille? Or was she just better able to hide her mean girl ways to protect her public image? Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave might vote for option number two and she is not shy about telling us why.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer has just received some good news. And she deserves it. Viewers watched her ugly divorce from actor Kelsey Grammer play out Season 1. She was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 2013. And Camille recently lost her Malibu home in the Woolsey fire. That had to be very traumatic.
In October 2013, Camille obtained a restraining order against her then-boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos. Camille alleged that Dimitri physically abused her in a hotel room while she was recuperating from a hysterectomy.
