When Brandi Glanville joined the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills entourage, Camille Grammer gained a co-star and pal who could speak her language.
"We discussed our divorces and connected," Camille tells RadarOnline. "She and I both went through a very difficult time, and I think we sort of bonded."
Like Camille, Brandi's divorce from TV actor Eddie Cibrian played out like a Movie of the Week. Married in 2001, the couple has two sons and in 2009, rumors swirled that Eddie was having an affair with his married Lifetime movie co-star LeAnn Rimes. The same year, he filed for divorce and eventually wed his country co-star last April.
Sounding vaguely familiar to Camille's mess with ex Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh? "She's a year ahead of me in her divorce, and she's strong as nails," Camille says about her been-there-done-that new bud. The two blondes and former models also share another familial similarity: Camille has a daughter named Mason, and Brandi has a son with the same moniker.
"I like Brandi, and I enjoy her company a lot, actually," Camille raves. "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."
Follow Camille and Brandi's new friendship when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns on September 5.
