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,

Camille

Brandi: I Don't Enjoy Anger or Grudges

Brandi explains why she's ready to move on, as long as it doesn't mean kissing a**.

I’m back in L.A. after a wonderful trip to visit my family. I’d like to thank everyone for their support regarding my father’s health. Dad is back home and on his way to what will be a slow and long recovery, but he is getting better and that’s all that matters. I’m so grateful I was able to hang with my boys and family and just kick back, cook, watch my nieces and boys play, and relax.

So tonight’s show is pretty drama-free for me, which is great, because I’m in a happy place and sometimes watching old drama unfold can set me back a little, emotionally. And can anyone believe that we are on episode six, and I haven’t hit the sauce yet? Don’t worry, it's coming. It's not fun to be sober all of the time.

Lisa Rinna introduced her parents and her Medford, Oregon hometown to the audience tonight. I love to see where people are from. It was a heartfelt moment where she shared the regret of visiting her childhood home for the last time and the guilt of living far away from her aging parents. It was very moving watching Lisa R. trying to instill the gravity of the situation of aging, illness, and finality of life to her teenaged daughters. After the normal teenage resistance faded, they realized it was a serious trip, and I’m glad she insisted her girls accompany her on it. I have to add that after seeing Lois Rinna, I can see where Lisa’s got her eyes from, and Frank Rinna’s paintings are amazing. I want one.

Kyle’s BBQ was next with everyone having a pretty good time. It was a very nice party. Yo was looking perfect as always. Meeting Eileen was fun and talking about Days was fun, too. Yes, I was a fan back in the day. Once we sat down, Kim’s old acting stories about faking tennis on Magnum, P.I. were the best. Eileen’s husband, Vince, is really nice and had great stories, too. He was on a lot of TV shows, like Kim. Kim and Vince kept the laughs going.

It was nice to see Mauricio and hear about another vacation. He is always cool and relaxed, and it’s nice to see him doing so well. Anyway, when all is said and done, we all saw who the true star of the BBQ was…Yolanda’s sandals. Want!

Moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**.

Brandi Glanville

Lisa V. and Ken were there, and despite the awkwardness, it was really nice to see them again. You could probably tell how uncomfortable I was feeling. You can also see, I tried. Hard. It was a bit awkward, but I did try my best to put the past behind us. Obviously this is going to take some time! Kyle said it best: “Lisa likes to hold on to grudges.” Again, Kyle said that, not me!

I don’t enjoy power plays, holding on to anger or grudges. I prefer peace, apologies, amends, and moving on. Life is hard enough without making it harder. Maybe relationships change but definitely trying for a peaceful coexistence is what I'm striving for at this point in my life. That said, moving forward doesn’t involve me constantly kissing a**. I won’t do that. Relationships have to be equal, right?

So, until next week, I hope all of you come watch my housewarming party. You’re all invited, and there’s going to be plenty of wine--my own personal label, actually (not that we have a name, yet)!

Happy holidays, peace, love, joy, and health to you and all your loved ones!

XOXO,

Brandi
