Hello to all of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Fans. I would like to once again thank all of my fans for their growing support during these difficult times.
In episode seven, I play a rather minor role in the story line. I was out shopping for a dress to wear to the Tony Awards. Award season is such an exciting time of the year and I enjoy seeing who is nominated, who wins and like most women the fashions. It takes a lot of time to find just the right look, but if successful it only adds to the excitement of awards night. I have to say that these gowns were stunning, and one of the ones that you see on the episode was the actual gown I wore to the Tony's—and as well as in the little intro sections to the segments of the show. They were absolutely beautiful, but even more importantly, whenever I find myself shopping for such a special event I find it equally rewarding to donate a suit or other business attire to a charity that I love to support with donations. It is called Dress for Success. The mission of this organization is; "To promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support, and the career development tools to
help women thrive in work and life."
I would like to send Camille Grammer a personal e-mail. Does she have a personal e-mail that she shares with viewers?
The show shows what you've said and done. They didn't put words in your mouth. I hope you watch and learn some things about yourself. Like how you like to have butt kissers in your life and maybe you need people who tell you the real truth. Self awareness is a beautiful thing!
"Next week things should start to get a little more exciting again, for those of you who live for the drama."
Oh. That must mean you'll be back.
I really enjoyed tonight's episode.
HMMM..Camille maybe you are learning from past blogs.. not so obvious with the sarcasm and cutting snide remarks. Looks like you have learned to word your nasty statements with a little more class.
Oh Camille, you continue to take this opportunity to jab at others on the show. Many of us see through your little comments and the way you perceive them to be kind. They're not. If we didn't see another minute of you on this show, we'd all be happy.
I think you mean well. I really do.I'm not here to ridicule or criticize, but I found your blog to be a bit contrived. Your donation to charity speaks of kindness in your heart, but that kindness is overshadowed by the lack of humility associated with the act. It looks like you utilized copy and paste to describe or define something that you should be able to put into your own words... You were spending time with your family. Enough said. We don't need it justified with how you "TRY" to spend as much time with them as possible, or how it was when you grew up. I'm sure other wives on the show as well as people across the world share those same sentiments of family and quality time. I just think you could be more humble and not try so hard.
I feel for you going thru a divorce and possibly an affair by your now ex husband. Having been there myself, I'm aware of the pain. In hindsight I'm pretty sure you'll see the difficulties began before NY, before filming, or whatever. Even if you were blindsided like I was, I see clues that I didn't 10 yrs ago. It still hurts and it's only been a year, so I'm sure that's part of your current attitude and Kyle is the lucky person to be the target. You even threw a dig in at the last part of this blog. Of an episode you were in for 5 minutes. If you'd left it at the wonderful charity mentioned, we'd have left with a better taste in our mouths.
You asked if we really think the show really shows your true personality. Considering the fact that the cameras followed you to NY a couple of times, to Hawaii, BH's and your home, I can only assume that it isn't all about the edit. They only have what you say and do to work with. Your blogs are more testament.
You seem to be trying very hard to convince us that there's no one more charitable, giving, fortunate, generous, et al...but it all comes with a price is what I see. Don't toot your own horn so much.
I did notice this week that the other women were at a party together and although there were actresses there (cast members you mentioned in the blog), there was no drama that wasn't light hearted and fun. hmmmm
I don't blame Camille for being upset about how she's been treated or portrayed. Kyle, Lisa and Bravo set her up to be the scape goat and she's smart to not allow them to run all over her. I hate what Bravo has done to this series. It takes bullies and sets them loose on unsuspecting women. Like Camille or not , it's wrong to do this to anyone.
If there is a second season of this franchise, give some serious thought to not participating, Camille. Unless you're one of those people who think bad press is better than no press, this has not put you in a good light whatsoever.
Camille, Yes, you are going through difficult times. Other than that, I think you are just too, too fond of yourself. Get over it. You have a smokin' body but your attitude stinks. Work on that and you could possible have the total package and..........more friends. Open up and learn.
I loved that you were missing from this episode. You bring tension to the group and I feel like they have to walk on eggshells around you. I find it so difficult to like you after last weeks comments about the "pecking order".
I am guessing that when you read comments to your previous blogs regarding charity work you felt the need to bring up your donations to "Dress for Success". While donating items is a wonderful way to give monetary gifts to those who need help, I believe that once again you are showing that you don't know how to give "of yourself". You need to see what it is like in the real world for people struggling, families struggling. Give the gift of your time to "Meals on Wheels" or a homeless shelter and really experience what stuggling people are going through. You need a true reality check and putting clothes in a bag for a pick up is not going to give it to you.
I don't understand why Camille's main topic of conversation is how everyone else is jealous of her. It screams of insecurity. If she was truly happy and confident, she would be living her life(see Lisa and Adrienne) and not lashing out and then running to her minions how pet her and tell her how wonderful she is. I am sorry that she is going through a rough time, but she needs to take a deep breath and stop creating a drama diversion.
In the previews of next week's show, it shows you talking to your "friends" again about Kyle. Who is obsessed with whom?
Camille, I think your great! However I thinky our hilarious when your not even making a joke. You brought up the Tony's ATLEAST 20 times in the last episode. Your beautiful and smart- no need to brag.
Camille and Kim are my favorites! The show is boring without Camille, and I like how Kim is starting to open up more. The dresses were so beautiful, especially the red one. Don't let the negative energy get you down, Camille. Stay beautiful and classy.
Camille, I really enjoy your character. You bring alot to the show and that is why I wanted to tell you that I think you need to accept that you are beautiful and more than Kelsey's wife (or ex now). You seem to truly need other people around you to convince you of this. I'm sorry but these people are using you. It is so obvious that they suck up to you and tell you whatever you need to hear. You need real friends to be with you especially with what all you are going through at this time. You seem to have a compassionate and caring side that realizes the importance of giving back, however, you offset that side of yourself by becoming so self involved and your neediness. I think you have a lot to offer and I hope you will let that side of yourself emerge. I'm looking forward to watching your character develop and I really hope that you will realize your worth in your own eyes!!! God bless you during this difficult time.
I don't always agree with your methods and I feel the misunderstanding with Kyle lays at your door, but no one should ever say you deserved Kelsey leaving you. That's just not nice no matter who the person is. Divorce is difficult and painful no matter how much you dislike each other. I think you are interesting to watch but I wonder with the supercilious words you use if you are practicing from one of those "learn a new word a day" calendar or something?
Some of us wanted to see what real Bev Hills ladies lives are like (even if in pieces)& I think we are seeing a nice range-you are contributing to that range and I like it & will continue to watch. I look forward to more seasons of RHWOBH. I say keep it up CG!
After watching Dec 2's episode, its obvious that you're not needed for this show. Its interesting and enjoyable with out you. Kyle is too nice to have said what you think she did. Get over it and move on...and off the show.
Camille, except for its editing as to when certain incidents took place (such as Nene's consultataton with an attorney on RHOA), I believe Bravo is portraying all of the housewives as they truly present themselves. While I wholeheartedly agree that Kyle's behavior in the restaurant was as far removed from being ladylike as is possible, your refusal to accept her apology and then restarting the argument in the restaurant after Kyle's apology is equally atrocious. You claim you want to step out from behind your husband and shine on your own, yet you continue to constantly call attention to the fact you are married to Kelsey Grammer and how, in some strange way, that places you higher on society's ladder than your castmates. That insanity is a product of your mouth, not Bravo's editing. Given your behavior and attitude thus far, it came as no shock to hear you report you've always had a difficult time making women friends. Perhaps if you treated other women in a kinder manner, you would find yourself with more female friends. You seem to have a major entitlement attitude and even your mother's serious illness took a back seat to your perceived problems over closing the Hawaii house and opening the New York apartment. I truly hope you and all of Bravo's housewives learn what is really important in life, i.e., giving yourself over to the Lord and following His plan for your life
I do. I live for your drama. My own drama just isn't as fun. Can't wait till next week! Cold New England days are way better with Bravo programming!
You continue to suggest that others on the show have placed you in a bad light. In my opinion, you do a great job of showing us your shallowness and self-centered and superior attitude about yourself. Maybe if you reduce the size of your implants, start seeing yourself as no better than anyone else, and stop flaunting your perceived "wealth" (which is things, not real people)....you might have a better chance at a positive response....not that I believe that will happen.
We all understand that the episodes we are watching now were filmed some time ago, and no one can go back and change things that have already happened, so your blogs are an important tool to express yourself and explain why things happened. Unfortunately, from your current blogs it appears that you are exactly as you appear in the show. Completly self absorbed and living off the fame of your now ex-husband. Bravo is just showing what is really there and maybe you need to just watch yourself and realize who you really are rather than blame the show for creative editing. Maybe you are in the position you are in now because your behavior in the past was shallow and self serving. No one wants to be around that, unless they are your paid employees. Divorce is always so difficult and I can only imagine how hard it is for you to go through this publicaly with your children. Please re-evaluate who you are and how you treat other people. I wish you well.
Camille it behooves you to not blame editing, and to not blame the show. No one forces you to say the things that you have said on the show, no one has forced you to react the way that you do on the show, no one forced you to insult others the way that you do on the show. its an opportunity to see urself the way others see you, and improve on the things about yourself that u did not like
I don't understand all the negative comments towards you to be honest.But I also don't understand all the over the top Kyle lovers. You may be insecure in some ways. But I also find Kyle to be judgmental .But she is a good actress. She hides her judgment under "concern". Look at how condescending she is with her sister. I think Kyle is the type would bully someone in a passive aggressive way. But having said that, I look forward to learning more about you as time goes on. Sometimes it takes awhile for all the layers to show up.
I detect a little cognitive dissonance in this post. You have a perception of yourself that has been carefully developed to see yourself in the best possible light in any given situation. Frankly speaking, you have bought into your own press. Seeing yourself as others see you isn't always a pleasant experience, and can show our flaws in the unflattering and unflinching light of reality. Instead of trying to convince fans of the show that you are really all sweetness and light behind closed doors, take a look at how you come across to others and work on being a more empathetic and forgiving person.
We're all human, and it's ok to admit we make mistakes.
I'm a fan. Please ignore the haters. Firstly, you looked stunning in those outfits you tried on. And NO I do not work for her. My goodness, Camille can't even mention a charity or spending time with her children before the haters come out and question her intentions for mentioning it.
Camille loves her mother and is making sure her mom has the best cancer doctors and doesn't have to worry about going into debt to deal with her illness. Just because Camille talked about her own fears with her mother doesn't mean she didn't spend more time talking to her mother about her health issues. I'm sure Bravo just edited it out.
You guys fail to mention how good she treats her friends. I love the fact that her friends are not hollywood people. They're just regular folks like you and me. Camille has friends she made before she met Kelsey and they're still with her. What does that tell you about her character?
Whatever, I just love her sense of style and I hope she comes out with a fashion or jewelry line that's affordable. Please sell it on HSN or QVC.
Best wishes and good energy to your mom Camille! Tell her to stay strong.
I thought the show this week was BORING....can't wait until you are back, Camille. You're the reason I tuned in and although I agree with some of these posts and you have a lot to learn about how to treat others, I think Kyle is a bully and her slip of the word "insecure" was intentional and was meant to wound. I can't stand her, I don't get the Kyle love at all. Sorry to hear about your marriage troubles. You didn't deserve to be treated that way and I hope you and your kids are okay.
Hi Camille :)
I am wondering if you read the comments on your blog ? If you do, I hope you take them as constructive criticism. Turn the negative comments into something positive and work on better your self as a person.
Good luck !
I hope you, your children and your Mother are doing fine under the circumstances. I supposed that you are devastated by the things that has transpired during the last months with your ex-husband. Under other hand, this is an opportunity for you and your children to evaluate and make a new and positive start with the best possible environment, away from the hurtful pass you are all going through right now. You are a very beautiful woman, but you need to work on your personality and attitudes towards other persons who are around you including your castmates.
God Bless you, your children and your Mother,

Camille, I'm a fan, too. I think you've given us a fabulous, entertaining TV character––the over-the-top Beverly Hills housewife––that obviously is not entirely who you are. Sorry you're taking flak for it. Some of us do get it. Frankly the show would be a yawn without you. Camp it up, girl!
I watched that NY showdown over and over trying to comprehend with your reaction and your perspective of the evenings but I yet ccan find one thing that remotely sounds sane. Sorry. i was really trying to put myself in your shoes and see if I heard things that were backhand comments but I didnt. Anyway, try to correct one thing about yourself. Learn how to keep calm and keep it moving.
Camille has misspoken on this show several times. The comments on Kelsey's sobriety and the priceless pecking order comment being the most outlandish...
You would think that someone who puts their foot in their mouth as often as Camille would be a bit more understanding about one's words being misunderstood.
True, Camille has friends that are not wealthy,, but a critical mistake was making sure everyone that watches know that " She lets them stay in one of many houses they own, because they are having hard times,",, come on no friend lets that cat out of the bag.... unless they want themselves to look good.. sorry... low blow
She should really take a page from your book Betheny,,,,I love your show You make everyone feel like your best friend...
I just watched a marathon of RHOBH and I have to say, it seems that you are working to hard to make sure that everyone knows how fabulous you are. You want constant compliments, and to envy you. You need all to know how generous you are. Everyone is supposedly envious of you. Perhaps you are as insecure as they say. I think it would behoove you to take Kyle's advice and get some therapy as soon as possible. It will help you to deal with those insecurities and to deal with the all of the emotions of dealing with a painful public divorce.
Thank you for putting into perfect words exactly what I was seeing/feeling. I am consumed by the Camille who is consumed by the Camille and just don't understand how she cannot see her reflection. This might be the best avenue for her self awareness she could ask for.
