Don’t PC and Jessie seem like an old married couple? They fight constantly but forgive easily. Ok…so PC mentioned that Kelli & I thought Jessie was intimidating. Well, duh! Just watch episode two, and make up your own mind! But we never told PC she was a “bitch” to PC’s face. I hadn’t actually had chance to actually talk with Jessie, and I would never form an opinion of someone based on first impressions or rumors. Kelli and I didn’t intend to “irritate” Jessie, and we approached her at Zoe’s party with the best of intentions. I just wished we could have sat down and talked before this intimidating/bitch situation got out of hand. I don’t think even PC was trying to make trouble; I just think he was raising a PC/Jesse issue in a rather oblique (passive-aggressive?) way.
Taylor’s date with Sebastian was so cute; they both looked like they had a great time but still had the slight awkwardness of a first date.
First the spa, HOW EMBARRASSING were the masks on Kelli and my faces! You think that look will catch on? LOL.) I love spas (and who doesn’t like the idea of people pampering you), but a hot bath with some candles does the same thing, and is practically free.
Of course, Kelli and I had already heard about the date from Sebastian, so we wanted to get the scoop from Taylor when we went to Intermix. (Intermix – yes expensive, but fabulous! Save up for one great piece, then put the rest of the look together at Zara or Top Shop.) That’s why you never saw Kelli and I leave the store with bags – we never bought anything!
Oh you are so adaorable. You seem like you know how to have fun and get down to work and study. Love you Camille you are truly a NYC Prepseter
hey camille! I think you're gorgeous; and I would really like to see more of your lifestyle (i.e house, etc.). Keep up the good job!
Take care. You are so talented and epic. I'm embarrassed that I, at 27, am watching your show and am reading your blogs like an obsessed maniac, but frankly, it's pretty fun to watch you and your crowd.
Just wanted to give you a friendly nudge, if I may, because I feel like I can relate to you in that it seems that young guys your age are a little cool to you, and that was my experience while I was your age. You don't need me (or any of your fans) to affirm how gorgeous you (and your friends) are, but what kind of hurts MY feelings FOR you, while I watch, is that indeed, Sebastian WAS being a little rude, I think, because he recognizes that you are razor-sharp and that you don't miss a beat. I wish young guys wouldn't be threatened by girls like you because of your strong personalities, command of the language, or panoramic insight, but the fact of the matter is that they are.
Let people like Sebastian make their mistakes and don't be afraid of calling a spade a spade. His behavior both during and after the party was inconsiderate, selfish, and off-putting. You don't have to retaliate against him, naturally, but I feel that you were on to his edginess toward you and that you are probably making excuses for him ("he really meant it in a friendly way") out of some social Darwinian instinct to preserve peace in your social circle...but Camille, if a jerk's a jerk, no amount of saying "No, no, he's a great guy" will make it better. My advice to you is to say "Thanks" and move on. No need to feel awkward because you had something in your teeth, and no need to fall all over yourself thanking some player who just wants into Taylor's knickers, either.
You girls are SO SMART and have TONS of opportunities - don't get bogged down this year! Enjoy your summer, sweet thing!
P.S. While I was lucky to enjoy a privileged upbringing just like you, now that I'm 27, I'm trying to rely on my own resources...but maybe that aspirational shopping (like at Intermix) isn't the best environment for meet-ups, especially if you're just browsing and you know Taylor doesn't love shopping. You want everyone to feel 'in their element' and comfortable...otherwise, it can feel a bit staged and Godfather-y...no? All my best to you and your girls!
I agree with Christina. Camille, you are highly intelligent, focused, and beautiful. Guys your age can't even begin to understand nor appreciate your uniqueness. Focus on your future! If you must date now, choose a deserving young man that is older than you.
You are so beautiful and unique Camille! You sound really intelligent and I commend you for not always needing to be part of the party scene.
My brother also thinks your really hot! ... ew? haha
anyways, the show is AMAZING -- xx
Camille, you seem like a very driven, goal-oriented girl, but please, do volunteer work like Operation Smile because you WANT to, not because it will get you into Harvard. I'm sure it wasn't your intention, but going into charitable work with opportunistic aims of getting ahead is not the right attitude to approach it and could actually seem very insulting to the people your work is benefitting. Do the work because it is a good, kind thing for a person to do and helps you to be an active, civically engaged citizen. Best of luck to you on your SATs- those, unfortunately, you do have to take advantage of to get into school!
Ok, this the kind of show that makes me think.. Is that For Real? But I guess it is, you all live in a world that makes you seem older. I'm 25 yrs old and to catch up with all of you it would take me 20yrs... The good thing is that you all seem to be excellent students.
You're alright. But you need to get over yourself 'cause you def do NOT own the city! Just because you are rich, doesn't mean you are cool or powerful. There are plenty of rich people in NYC. You're not the only one... I'm tired of rich people's attitudes and thinking they own the world!
hI camille! i'm 24 yrs old and LOVE the show! i also went to a prep school, but in a different state, and the show is a bit similiar to it. i was wondering where you get your CUTE headbands, and kinda of makeup you wear, i love your look!
You are definitely my favorite, Camille. You have the best clothes, the best manners, and seem to have a grip on reality. You and Kelli seem to be the really interesting girls on the show. PC really needs to step down. You aren't much younger than he is! Also, you were 100% within boundaries when you said that you were intimidated by Jessie. She IS intimidating! You're definitely awesome, girl. Keep doing what you're doing. And PLEASE tell us where you get your clothes; you always look ADORABLE! I don't think you were being confrontational when you asked Taylor those questions. I would have asked the same ones to my friends.
You're fabulous and gorgeous!
P.S. Since when is a quick lip-peck the same as hooking up? Was I the only one who thought it was weird when Taylor said that? Anyways, she seems nice, but should be careful of Sebastian's charm...it seems to be blinding her a little bit! Kelli, you can do much better! You're gorgeous and seem to actually be able to carry on a conversation, so please don't be charmed by him.
hi camille! i like your attitudes and it's not a shame to feel proud of richness. it's just that people not as rich as you are may feel uncomfortable say something terrible. don't let them bother you and keep being yourself! have a nice summer!
ok hey camille, we soooo have to meet up and havea drink 2gether! my treat! we should meeet at french roast or west! hey email me ok? email@example.com bye xx we have to talk about journalism cause thats my thing too
camille i actually think your beautiful. and to the commenter who said about owning new york city. if u watch the full clip camille says that thats what PC said. so get ure facts straight. and i love you and taylor the best by far. kelli is alright
You're the sweetest out of all of them. You actually have a plan for your future. I love everything about you. You also have a very unique face. I love your eyes. What Ethnic are you a mix of?
hey camille, wuzup its Joe from Houlihans the other night. I was ur waiter, lol, so i had a good time w/ u girls the other night, ur all a ball of fun, lol..So i lost ur guys' number at the bar but if u get this and wanna get up some time my number is 973-362-8686, or email me one of urs its firstname.lastname@example.org. K check u later
Camille, I suggest that if you want to get into harvard, find out what it is about the place that intrigues you (and not just go there for the prestige). I think the reason Jessie is successful in Operation Smiles is because it's something that is precious and meaningful to her. You mentioned something about a bio-med company in your future, is that something you're interested in? If so, follow your heart and explore that direction. The last thing a Harvard interviewer/faculty want to hear is that you did the bare minimum. They want to see that you are, not only a go-getter, but someone who has a sense of purpose in life and knows/goes for what they want. This might take some time to explore though, you are still very young, but I think you can do it.
OMG...you're like my favorite person out off all the others ^.^ I love that you care about your grades and that you are ambitious! You seem so put together and mature. You rock!
Team - I don't typically comment on this kind of forum (or ever) but I watched 15 minutes of this show. My ladies, don't waste your time on someone that isn't (biologically) into you; see the signs. I realize I see a *edited* perspective, but boys (yes, UES included) can be conflicted between the reality and the ideal.
i get what you mean about just being curious. i like to know everything. i am one of those people who if a subject comes up and i dont think i know enough about it, i will look it up on wiki. and its the same with people. i like knowing... doesnt mean i like telling. in HS i knew everyones secrets, but i wasnt the mean girl spreading them around. i think i just dont like being in the dark.
so yeah i totally get what your saying.
pssst... your blog has been the best so far. really well written! you should write more.
Camille you and kelli make a great team. You seem to be very sure of yourself ( in a good way). Save yourself for a man who's a man and not a boy. Peace
P.C. and Jessie do seem like an old married couple.... but something along the lines of the movie, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
I really hope you answer this question in your next blog i would appreciate it ... Where was that nuts/chocolate store you and taylor were in .. it looks soooo good and i would really like to know where it is the city.. thanks
Your so called stylist was trying to make you get rid of Missoni?? She was trying to get your goods for herself!! I hope you stopped her!! Stay sweet...
Camille, i think you are intelligent, and i love how people always say "it's social suicide to get on bad terms with Camille." That shows people are intimidated by your social surroundings, and are afraid to cross ways with you. And i think it's good you keep Kelli under control, or at least stable about the whole Sebastian and Taylor thing, because we know Kelli does hurt when she sees them 2 together.
As for Sebastian letting you know about that little something in your teeth... doesn't it beg the question why Taylor didn't let you know that before you began to socialize at the party? I'm sure she saw it. Anyway, you're brilliant, I can tell and that's refreshing aside from the run of the mill barrage of risque air heads we find on reality television!
Can someone just answer where the nut/chocolate shop is?? The one that camille and taylor went to. Please, someone answer this question.
i think you are beautiful in a good way, classy and are a good true friend to keli even when you dont aprove of something you are a loyal friend but are also fair to everyone else. if you dont have a boyfriend im sure its because you seem more mature than boys your own age. Im happy you want to be very succsesfull but also remember to let your hair down and enjoy life ok,, really think your the one with best personality..byby
Be true to your heart. Work hard, because that is what our society demands. But let your hair down, hold back your judgements, and experience life and people. In New York it is as easy as striking up a conversation with a cab driver (even just taking a cab or even the subway or bus), developing a friendly relationship with the people at the corner deli, knowing all your neighbors by name, or going to a party you normally wouldn't. This is city is built on hard work, uprisings, standing for something. Harvard is great. I went to an ivy league school. (and i'm posting for the first time ever!!) Being intelligent is being able to think, to see, to understand.....get accepted to Harvard for something you love and believe in....make that a goal and achieve it. And as for the men, you rock. don't ever settle. But do you first so you can be secure and loving in the relationship. You'll be great.
You are a lovely young lady. I also think you are hilarious and witty. I think you have a wise perspective on each situation and I like how you hold yourself with confidence. I'm really impressed with you. I think of all the girls on the show you will go the farthest.
You are my favorite because you seem the most driven, talented and well spoken.
Please don't date any of these immature boys on this show! You will have a better group of guys to choose from in college.
It's funny how all the girls in this show seem to have their heads on straight but all the guys seem immature, can't hold an intelligent conversation with anyone and have annoying hair flipping habits. Most of them seem way to feminine to be straight, not sure if the gays would like to claim them either.
Love the chocolate shop that you and Taylor go to...please help solve the mystery and tell us what shop it is!!!!!! Thanks!!!
Hi, Camille! I wanted to let you know that you are my favorite person on the show. I feel like out of the group i can relate to you the most. It's relieving to know that there are others as driven as I am! Keep striving towards completing your goals and i hope you are accepted to Harvard (without a doubt you will). Best of luck :)
Camille you are too cute. I love how you rationalize every situation. So smart and sophisticated without being bitchy...just honest.
It looked like the Lindt chocolate shop? I could be wrong but as soon as they walked into that's what it reminded me of.
Honestly that stylist was trying to keep anything she talked you out of tossing. First off Diane Von Furstenberg is a staple. There are prints from 4 seasons ago that are now coveted like her wrap dress with her name printed throughout. I cannot believe her! Never work with her again. I live in NYC and honestly besides the lables kids and public school are the same exact way. Instead of a scene playing out at blue and cream or intermix(seriously just wait for the barneys warehouse sale) it would play out at the forever 21 at 34th street. I think that date you went on was painful. The guy was totally hot but really how many freaking times can you be asked if your'e enjoying yourself? I love that you still went home with him --- or at least it appeared that way. These prep school boys have no tact. He couldn't wait to blab to sebastian that things went much better after dinner! How tacky. Camille I went to Columbia University why not just stay in NYC?
Camille! I took the test to see which Nyc Preper I was, and I was you!!!!!!!!!! By the way, luh-uhve yuor cute little hair type flower things, soooooooooo cute.
"That’s why you never saw Kelli and I leave the store with bags – we never bought anything!"
Kelli and me?
I watch the show every Tuesday! That was hilarious when you went on the date with that weird guy!!!!!
Jessie has every right not to let you in Operation Smile after what you said about her school. Maybe you shouldn't disrespect other peoples' schools.
I am a fan of the show. I think you are a great member of the cast and the most relatable. Good luck getting into Harvard!
Hi Camille, U are te best castmember in NYC Prep. You are inteligent, self-confident, a true friend and not a backstaber. You make ur family, friends and urself proud. I'm a big fan of u. U r also beautiful. I also like ur fashion sense. I lke ur hairbands the most,it'sjust so adorable and cute.
I went to the same high school as Camille and she is right that it is a lot more rigorous than Jessie's. There was an article in W magazine several years ago that slammed Manhattan private schools, and they basically called Dwight a joke, a place for rich kids who weren't that smart. They said Dwight stood for "Dumb White Idiots Getting High Together."
Camille, don't worry you'll find the right guy, but don't change your standards I think that would be settling for less then what you deserve.
I am in love with your taste in fashion & I thought that the so called stylist was trying to get rid of amazing clothes. I actually think she was getting rid of the stuff she wanted for herself. I wish I had clothes like you they are truly incredible. & I love the way you wear them, you wear them in a way in which they weren't intended to be worn, but you still rock it.
