Camille Grammer lets us in on why her role on this week's episode was brief, and other behind-the-scenes secrets.
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."
During this time in my life when this episode was being shot I was very busy with my family. It was getting close to my daughter and son's dance recital, and I try to get as involved as possible. It is so special for us to spend this time together. Not only do we have fun together as a family but it also reminds me of when I was young and I would spend time doing the same thing with my mother. This was particularly on my mind because of the health challenges that she is facing right now. I know that she does not always find it easy to talk about; she just isn't comfortable with other people feeling sorry for her. That said, I know that she does appreciate any support that she gets. So, I have to personally thank all of you who have sent supportive messages, it means a lot to me, because she means so much to me. Furthermore, as an update, she reports that he is feeling well and is very optimistic.
As I mentioned before, this week the show was more focused on the other cast members. So when I was reading the producer, Dave Rupel's blog, I was inspired to give you a little "behind the scenes" insight in to how I, as a cast member, have experienced the show. First of all I have to say that It has been quite an experience so far.I wasn't surprised to find out that three of my cast members were actors. I know this isn't an uncommon thing in reality TV. After all who else would be better equipped to bring on the "drama" then someone who does it for a living. It was a fascinating orchestra of personalities and the people behind them. I really didn't know what I was getting myself into. I did truly enjoy some parts of this experience and hope to end up with some life long friends. Other parts have been less then a positive experience to say the least. I would love to say more but would find myself with the proverbial "legal" foot in my mouth, if you catch my drift. I have a contract, and like it or not this is something that I am legally required to follow. I will answer this question: Do I think the show accurately represents my true character and personality? Maybe some of the time, other times ????
Next week things should start to get a little more exciting again, for those of you who live for the drama.
Until next time,
