Camille Grammer

Camille discusses the disastrous game night and shares why she refused to talk about Kim to Brandi.

on Oct 15, 20110

Wow, what an episode!!! I can hardly believe the build up to the drama we saw and what is yet to come. I can hardly believe it -- and I was there.

The game night gathering started slowly. I wasn't sure if there was some underlying tension among the guests or if it was just one of those awkward situations that happens every now and then. Everybody has been to a party where the guests just sit and look at each other waiting for a starting gun to go off to get things going. Although, in this case, once things did get rolling it was good there were no guns to be found.

As I watched the episode I was brought back to that night and the tension was palpable. I didn't want to acknowledge it at first. I was looking forward to a fun night. Things had been going pretty smoothly with the ladies, so I expected a relatively relaxing evening. Well, as my children often say. . .the party was an "epic fail."

Camille,

I saw you on a talk show with Kelsey years ago talking about Crohn's Disease. I had forgotten this information until I saw you on Housewives of Beverly Hills. My son was diagnosed at age 11 and is now 16 years old. He has had his ups and downs. It's heart breaking for a mother to see her child go through this disease. You handle yourself with class and humility although you have your own struggles with this illness. Not many people are knowledgeable about Crohn's and Colitis, after all it is not an area of our body people like to discuss. Recently my son's tutors brother died from complications to Crohn's. What a tragedy. He was a teenager. I keep hearing that they are close to a cure. It is not a disease that I feel people think is as serious as others, but it can be debilitating as you know. Money doesn't just stream in easily. I am a nurse and feel helpless except to try to raise money with yearly walks for Crohn's and Colitis or doing an occasional fund-raiser. What we need is a celebrity spokesperson to bring this disease more out in the open. You have spoken out in the past. Have you thought of bringing it to light on your show. I know it is not a glamorous thing to do, but you have the beauty and intelligence to help so many. I am sorry if I am coming across preachy, but I am just a mother advocating for her son and others who suffer from this understood and very prevalent disease. Thank you for letting me share. Heidi

Camille,

It's so clear how editing can make an audience dislike a person. I feel so badly for my thoughts towards you in Season 1. You are such a gentle, kind and loving soul. You carry yourself with such grace and dignity. I absolutely adore you! I watch the show now and wish I could either give you a giant hug, spend a girl's night out with you or both! You're an amazing woman and the most incredible mother to your children. You've taken the high road with the Kelsey drama and it makes me respect you even more. It is so clearly his loss and you're a bazillion times better without him. (Not that you don't know this already.) You make me laugh, smile and feel good every single week. Thanks for being such a wonderful inspiration to your female fans everywhere! Love you!

Hi Camille,

Although last season you came off a bit pretentious, this season you are def the normal one. I really like you this season even tho I didn't completely dislike you last season. I must say with everything that you have been through and having it be so public you def came out on top by being graceful. As I am going through a break up currently, when thinking of your story, it makes me stronger and makes me realize that I can do this because you have done it and yours was soo public.

Camille, You are my favorite!!! I appreciate people like you for just being nice people. I always believed you last season when you said Kyle said those things about you but she kept denying it, but now I just know for sure. Notice in Kyle's blog, she said that she didn't know Brandi heard Kim say, "I don't like her" and so when Brandi started saying something about it, Kyle jumped to lie about it, because she didn't know Brandi had heard anything. SAME situation with you and Kyle last year!!! Since she said things about you off camera, she had no problem lying about it to the public. However in the "game night" episode, it was all caught on camera. Try lying about that now, Kyle.

Camille, I just wanted to comment how I admire you after what you went through last year and have come back for the new season a better and more tolerant, pleasant person. Lady, you DO have class.... and it was great how you took that little dig from Kim. I am concerned about Kim because there is definitely something going on. I hope that Kyle can become more tolerant herself and not fly off the handle soo much, but I do hope that you and Kyle will really become and remain "true" friends......I also hope you don't go back to the way you came across last year, superficial and not real..... I have really enjoyed you this year and hope you remain true to yourself and be yourself. People can have lots of money, but it doesn't make them necessarily classy.....in my life, I have dealt with both kinds of people having come from being around both kinds most of my adult life and lived well also, but to make a long story short.......again..........am really enjoying you this season and I hope that you are starting to feel some happiness coming back into your life, which I wish for you and yours

I was really impressed with Camille until Game Night. I felt you kept your mouth shut until the end where you told Kim you were sorry about how Brandi spoke to her but you really should have kept quiet because you went through the same thing last year and should have tried to show more support for Brandi. Kyle and Kim are mean spirited, unkind and their behavior is truly discusting. They should both be ashamed.

Feeling vindicated? I would, if I was you. All last year I felt Kyle somehow came out smelling better than she should have. All last year I believed your version of who-said-what in regards to that unfilmed comment. Kyle was a cleverly concealed bully last year, this year she is not concealing it. I only hope she gets dissed as much as you did once the finale comes around. What goes around comes around.

I understand why you didn't immediately come to Brandi's defense - you stood up to the bully last season and look where it got you. I hope, however, all you girls rally beside Brandi. If you do that, then you individually won't need to suffer the hurtful mean-spirited wrath of Kyle.

Camille, I am loving you! I admit I started last season with a pre-conceived idea of you, but as the season went on I was liking you more and more. And this season! Your graciousness and humor are really refreshing. You've handled your last several months with the utmost dignity. Totally re-assessing your bruhaha with Kyle. Water under the bridge, but bullying and self-righteousness always get exposed.

After watching how this season has progressed, I believe Kyle DID say those things to you last season, and that she purposely does not accurately portray who she is on this television show.

Camille i always like you from day 1 of the show. You and adrienne are beautiful inside and out.Don't let anybody bully you especially Kyle. You Go girl!

Brandi did get out of line a few times. But, look how she was treated - and the public embarrassment from her ex! Yet, Kyle never owned up to the fact that she and Kim didn't want Brandi on their team and that this was overheard by Brandi. I think you handled everything quite well, except you should have comfortied Brandi as you did Kim. I am proud of you as you have come a long way. I didn't expect good behavior from Kim. Kim, bless her heart, is just a Silly Goose "Gone Wild." In my estimation, Taylor has moved up a notch as someone else to be admired. Other ladies, with the exception of Adrienne, seem to have confused Money and the Power of Money with that of Class and Sophistation.

Camille, you behaved very well, I was impressed. I think you've really learned to navigate this crew. Kyle is a bully, I"m sorry to say, I really liked her but she and Kim behaved very poorly. You came away spotless, Camille, I think you've realized that this crew doesn't matter, your well being and your kids are the most important. Well done!

Don't say anything and I mean anything. People will turn on you like a bad habit, you were in the same boat last year or did you forget and you were getting all the nasty blogs, but people came around when they saw you and what your ex did to you. Always remember people only cheer for the underdog and you were he underdog. As for your mom, she's better already, always be positive always look ahead, always know that it not the dog in the fight but the fight in the dog (smile) Your mom has the fight in her she's ok even when it's not a good day shes ok. Honey with all the prayer that's going up for her blessings will come down Have a great day!!!!!!!

Camille, I have to say you have done a complete 160 since last season.. You seem like a whole new person in an aswesome way! but i was a little disappointeed the way you giggled when kim was talking about brandi and how you just set there (youve been there girl you should have had her back!) hope things get better for you and i second the comment about dancing with the stars youd rock it!!

Camille, please don't be "such a friend" that you didn't stick up for the rude and crude treatment of Brandi at "Game Night." I'm really getting sick of all the foul language on this show. This isn't the behavior of decent women. I may not approve of Brandi's language all the way down the line, however, she was treated rudely and unfairly by Kyle, Kim, and Dana. She is a newcomer and should at least be respected as such and made to feel welcome. Dana is a phony social-climber and did not behave properly as hostess in her own home. We watch the show as a diversion, however, don't become an "unreality" show. The extreme in-fighting might make me stop watching.

I really like you, you're gracious and classy, even in the first season I always thought that Kyle was the mean and evil girl not you, time gave me the reason, please do not be part of Kyle's circle, you're more than that.

Nice to see Camille as a completly different person. What I don't understand is all of the talk about kids bullying kids and how it needs to stop. Do any of the other housewives see how Kyle has become the bully and nobody says a word about it? As a matter of fact Lisa V. does nothing but egg her on. Funny, if this is what people of the upper class act like, I'm happy being a middle class american because I would never dream of treating people like they do.

Tough times only make you stronger, they say. Well, it's proven this season for you that they do! It's so nice to see you at peace as opposed to last season. Congrats on your strength in your time of adversity. :)

Camille, your idiot husband was on Piers Morgan last night, looking uncomfortable, touching his face a lot, scratching inside his shirt. His new wife had that "just become rich" look on her beaming face. I'm sure it is true love, until he runs out of whatever he is snorting. I feel like I am being mean, but he is such an ass.

Camille, I have to say I love you this season!! I think we are finally seeing who you are inside and you are coming across a very likeable and genuine person. It seems like last season you were painted as the villain, and yes some comments you made landed you in that position, but I think this season we all see how editing can make a person look. You are one of my favorites this season!! :)

Natale

I think you showed an extreme lack of judgement, being the one in the hot seat of Kyle's bullying last season, to not only stand back and not help the the victim of the mean sisters but then to go Kyle and Kim's side and comfort them! Why did they need comforting - they were the one's attacking. It's obviously Kim has some abuse/anxiety issues (her behavior is nothing but odd). You consider yourself a friend of Kyle's now - a true friend would tell each other when they are behaving badly. Sorry but your decision to stand back is an "F" in my book.

I still like you and Adrienne best as well as the new addition Brandi. But I think you could have been more supportive of Brandi when they were slinging mud at her, the poor girl broke down crying and they still were taking shots at her. My heart really broke for her watching no one support her as she sat and cried and was so self deprecating of herself. And I have boys too and trust me they take a leak inconspicuously outside when we're at my parents' house using their pool, like I really want them getting the downstairs floor all wet? lol I love how Adrienne showed some support in that area at least when she said that her boys probably did that too at some point and was not all uptight about it, I mean the child was only 4 that's very young. Kyle has such a stick up her fancy ass to think that Brandi was deficient by not running over in her crutches to admonish promptly. She's so judgmental. And Brandi really did try hard to be kind initially at the BBQ, by generously complimenting on how beautiful Kyle's daughters are and then Kyle conceded that her kids were cute too. It wasn't until Brandi dropped the c word that rhymes with clock that it hit the fan, poor girl, she has a colorful vocabulary, people should accept that about her, Kyle uses the F- word with ease, she's not Ms. Manners herself!

BOY CAMILE... I'M BEGINNING TO WONDER IF YOU WERE RIGHT LAST SEASON....I ALWAYS TOOK IT FOR GRANTED THAT KYLE WAS THE VICTIM BUT, HAVING WATCHED LAST NIGHTS EPISODE I AM IN SERIOUS WONDER. I'D LIKE TO APOLOGIZE TO YOU FOR NOT GIVING YOU THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT.

AS AN ADULT, MOTHER, EDUCATED WOMAN... I FOUND IT VERY TOUGH TO WATCH SUCH DISRESPECTFUL BEHAVIOR... MY FIRST BLAME IS TO THE HOSTESS...SHE SHOULD HAVE INTERVENED AND NOT ALLOWED TWO GUESTS TO COMPLETELY TAKE OVER HER PARTY. SHE STRIKES ME AS SOMETHING OF A SYCOPHANT AND THERE LIES THE PROBLEM.

I UNDERSTAND WHY YOU DIDN'T INVOLVE YOURSELF IN SPEAKING ABOUT KIM BUT THERE WAS LITTLE DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT SOME SORT OF "FUNNY BUSINESS" WAS GOING ON. HOWEVER, I KNOW IT'S ASKING YOU TO PUT YOUR HEAD ABOVE THE PARAPET, BUT I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HEAR YOU SAY "COME ON GUYS..ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"....

PERHAPS IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE BRANDI AND SOME OF THE OTHERS FOR DINNER AND NOT INVITE KYLE, KIM OR TAYLOR... WHAT AM I SAYING, THIS IS ALL MONTHS AGO NOW!!! OH WELL, CHIN UP. REGARDS, LIZ

I have always liked you Camille. From the beginning, I felt that Kyle plays the victim to stir the pot and create drama. She is a manipulater that turns everyone against one person, so she can feel popular. If you look at the past two seasons, whenever major conflict occurs, Kyle is front and center. Then she runs to the others and twists the truth to her benefit before anyone else can say their side. She is Vile Kyle. A true bully and mean girl.

I think you have handled yourself with grace and composure. Your children are lucky to have you as a mother, and I truly believe that you are a dear friend to those that you close to you.

Never thought I would say that you would become one of my favorite housewives, but you have. Just really wish, after all that the mean girls put you through last season, that you would have stuck up for Brandi more. She was not totally blameless in the game night fiasco; she was no more blameless than you were last season in some of your behaviors. She simply reacted, as you did last season, to being viciously and meanly attacked for no good reason at all. None the less, it was heart breaking to watch and I just wanted someone to step in and be a real friend. I understand, to a certain extent, why you didn't, but I still wanted to see it.

My heart goes out to you after the things said by Kelsey on Piers Morgan last night. It confirms my impression that he is a pompous, egotistical man with a lot of problems.

You are a class act. You were not humilated by Kelsey Grammer -- Kelsey humilated himself. Because of his behavior I do not watch any shows, movies etc that he is involved with -- His behavior was atrocious. It was very nice of you to friend Brandi.

Camilla you can tell you are in so much of a better place this year. I have really enjoyed watching you so far. You seem to be more at peace with everything. Kyle disappointened in your bahavior, still love you. Kim still trying to figure you out. Taylor very disappointed in you going so public with Russell's death. You still have a little girl, and that is her daddy. I am a Director of a Domestic Violence agency, and hate that you where involved in a DV relationship. But that is still her daddy and somethings could of waited to be told to the public for her sake.

Camille, I have completely changed my opinion of you this season. I see know that most of your behavior probably had to do with Kyle. You were right about her last season and now she's targeting Brandi. I just wish you had not comforted Kim after Brandi left. Kim deserved what she got, and probably a lot more. I don't see how you can trust Kyle at all. That woman has serious issues and will stab you in the back again. Good luck this season and I would suggest keeping Kyle at a distance.

Hi Camille - had to comment about you this season. Now that you are not trying to impress, you are very impressive. Saw your ex on Pierce Morgan last night. Not that I was ever a huge fan (I adored Eddie on Frasier - more than Frasier himself) - but after he spoke of you on that interview - I have zero respect for him. You should let him know that his parting gift to you is his absence from your life - not getting you on RHOBH.

You seem very zen this season. It's great that you didn't want to get involved. However, you are well acquainted with Kyle's bile being spewed on someone over semantics or pure dislike for no reason! I appreciate your stand to not get engaged in Kim bashing with Brandi. However, I was surprised that you didn't come to her aid her when both sisters (especially Kyle) brought her to tears. Brandi needed an ally. The hostess "Pam" joined the hate brigade and was a useless referee. You treated her like a bum on the street and just stared blankly without compassion. That was disappointing.

I do not understand the negativity towards Brandi TO HER FACE and IN HER FACE. These girls live in BH but is that how they act there? MEAN MEAN MEAN I am surprised at Kyle. Last season I thought you were to blame for what was started with Kyle, but I am changing my attitude. I think Kyle went after you and is now doing it to Brandi. Why? Who knows. You seem to have p"Passed the Test" and now are in their good graces. You are so sweet and demure this season and trying to be a good friend. Please befriend Brandi as she is going through a lot (like you were last year) and needs a new friend. Best wishes Camille to you and your nice mom.

Good for you girl! You did not get involve in the situation with Kyle and Brandi, they both behave terrible, and Kim well we all know she has some issues, and she is in a lot of stress or anxiety attacks. Do not get into the trap with Kyle PLEASE!

The show last night I just love it, your mom is adorable as well as you are.

Camille, I am an avid RH viewer, and I really feel like you are a whole new person this season!! Usually once I have built my opinion of the ladies on these shows, they don't change, but you are an exception! It's obvious to me now that last season was just a bad time in your life with your husband and just unnecessary drama with the other ladies. I am so happy to see you and Kyle on better terms! Last season I loved her and this season, I really love both of you and what y'all bring to the show!! You seem so much more down to earth and I can tell that with this divorce you have found a different part of yourself once again! I am happy for you! Now just find a great guy who can appreciate how fabulous you really are!
