Camille feels for Brandi and gives us the scoop on her slightly askew spray tan.
Posted by Camille Grammeron Oct 25, 20110
First. let's talk about Adrienne's cooking skills. I was thoroughly entertained watching Lisa and Adrienne cook chicken in Adrienne's kitchen. I really adore these women. I got a huge chuckle when Adrienne started washing the chicken with soap. That was a riot. I related to her speaking about salmonella poisoning as I've had food poisoning several times, and you definitely want to prepare food carefully so as not to get sick from it. I really, really enjoyed that scene. It's probably one of the most entertaining moments of the season so far. I'm sure, even though Adrienne states that she doesn't like to cook, she knows how to prepare a meal (of something) for her family.
As to the discussion of Brandi calling herself names, Brandi can be self-deprecating at times and doesn't hold back. Honestly when she's calling herself names, she's just doing it for the sake of the show. I don't believe Brandi really thinks of herself that way. If anything, she's just trying to be humorous and maybe a little sarcastic. I definitely doubt she believes any of it and would not say it if she did.
Adrienne's spa day was pretty spectacular. It was amazing she had all of these incredible gadgets and facial treatments and manicurists and estheticians. How wonderful to have all of that in your home. I was very, very impressed with the spa layout, the food, the equipment, massages, and everything that was available to us.
Camille - I like you much better this season, but I think you contributed to the bad feelings people had towards you last season, especially the night you had that nasty, psycho "psychic" over for dinner to torment the ladies. If that creature is a friend of yours, it doesn't speak well for you. Also your nasty comments about Kelsey demean you more than him. Not classy at all.
You do seem nicer this season and you are wise to stay out of the bullying sessions conducted by Kyle and Kim, but it would be great if you spoke up and asked them to stop, that would show someone in the room has compassion for for another human being! K&K don't know the first thing about comporting themselves with a smidgen of dignity! Good luck to you, though and lay off Kelsey! That would show real class.
Camille - divorce agrees with you, as odd as that sounds. You can see in your face and actions that you don't have the tension that you had last year and yet we all hear the gossip that Kelsey is suing for custody. You're a wonderful mother and no judge in the world would take those kids out of your care. I've been in your situation in a small town and it was embarrassing, you have handled it with class in front of the world press. Kelsey, on the other hand, can't keep his mouth shut. It's a shame because you will be connected your whole life. I hope he can grow up and make peace for the children's sake. My ex and I are able to celebrate birthdays and holidays together and our children are in their thirties. You really are an inspiration to many women who have been in your shoes!
I've been watching the Housewives series for quite a few years now and I have to say, you have become my FAVORITE......like you, I was seperated for quite a few years and after seeing you carry yourself with such class, dignity, maturity and just all around GOODNESS, I cringe at the thought of how I SHOULD HAVE BEHAVED!! Kudo's to you Camille for behaving like the Class Act you are.....HIS LOSS!!! And if possible, I think you're even MORE beautiful than last season!!
You are the quintessential LADY; always so gracious, warm and kind. Your son and daughter are extremely blessed to have you for their Mother. I wish you nothing but peace and happiness in your life now and in the future, which I'm sure holds AMAZING things that you are so very deserving of.
You dear, are by far my favorite (granted Adrienne was a close second ;). You seem like a very down to earth and grounded person. Your a commendable women not to mention funny and beautiful! Rock on Camille!
Camille I rooted for you last season and I'm loving your new outlook this season. You've dealt with so much with grace and dignity. In the end your kids will appreciate how hard you fought for them. Remain receptive to love and new possibilities. You deserve to be happy!
Camille, I think you are such a genuine person. You have had such a trying time latley and I wish you only the best. You seem like such a good friend and I hope all your wishes and dreams come true. Hang in there.
Camille, I liked you right from the start and I saw thru Kyle. Now everyone knows that Kyle is the bully you said she was. I hope you help Brandi become part of the group, and I certainly hope that the mean girls settle down! Oh, and that Kim gets to go to rehab......
Camille, I am impressed with how well you show grace under pressure and with how kind you can be to everyone. I also love your sense of humor. I wish you and your children all the best, keep your head held high and move forward. Your truly are a lovely, sweet lady.
I love your new attitude and approach to life. You are right it is too short to fill with petty, hateful stuff. I commend your neutrality towards things that are not evident and I am glad that you show kindness to others when they are down.
I admire your strength. You are giving women the courage to move forward after a divorce. I can see how going through this experience has humbled you. I have to admit, I didn't like your arrogant attitude, last season. However, this season, you appear to be more real--someone we can actually relate to.
I appreciate you not getting invoved in the caddiness of the others. Plain and simple--it is not enjoyable to watch. What viewers want is, an escape into the lives of women in Beverly HIlls. If this really is your lives--petty fighting--then maybe the show should be cancelled.
At any rate, stay the way you are. You are a breath of fresh air amongst the stench from the mean girls.
I really like you this season too, but I sure wish you would have an opinion. When Adrienne was asking Brandi to apologize you should have stepped in and told her that it was not Brandi's fault, Adrienne was not there, she needed to hear from you.
Camille you are a totally different person this season. Not only are you nice, without the passive agressive mean facial expressions from last season. The Camille I see now is considerate, intelligent without pretention, and empathetic. Your work with your Mom is amazing. Thank you for coming back and without Mr. Big Shot holding you down your future as an actress or whatever you choose to do will be a sucess. I am a fan and I admire your style- thank you.
Camille I have really grown on you this season so far. Last season I wasn't sure about you but am glad your true colors have come out. You have said nothing but nice things about everyone and Kyle had the nerve to dig on that. Shame on her. I love you and adrianne are always just humble showing on the show. You clearly see you both have nice thing and are well off but you arent over the top about yourselfs like the others seem to be. I think it was horrible what Kelsey had done to you last season and its refreshing to see you are a strong woman and not jumping into a relationship right away after you had to deal with that horrible situation. Stay strong with your mother! She seems like an amazingly strong woman as well! Best of luck to you camille! Its so great to see a housewive that is real and not caddy or fake! You and adrienne are my favorite out of all cities!
I didn't care for your attitude last season but you have really turned around and you are one of the best on the show. I admire your outlook and calmness. Just keep your chin up, take care of your children as you do and spend as much time with your mother as you can! Moms are irreplaceable. God bless you!
Camille you definitely are a class act this season. Getting rid of that dead weight aka husband seems to suit you. Good luck in the future, I hope you find a man that treats you as you should be treated, with love and respect.
I don't know Camille...I always liked you. I never understood why the media was saying that you were hated.
I never liked Kyle or Lisa. They love to creat drama! I think Kyle is always "acting".
You are a classy lady.
Hey Camille, You have turned into a sheepish figure. YOu were such a string personlity last season. I know you have been going thru hard times but I really hope to see the strong minded Camille. PS- Where is Alison Duboise when we need her?
Camille, you have been nothing but classy this season. You had every chance to throw Kyle and Kim under the bus and you handled the situation with grace and kindness. That is the portrait of a true lady. Be strong. Definitely get the mental health care support for your kids. I'm watching and cheering for you every week!!
You know what? You really have changed a lot since the start of the show. I've changed my opinion of you, for the good. I should have given you more of chance, considering all that you were going through and the despicable treatment that you received by your now ex-husband. Kudos to you, Camille.
It's good to get to know you more in your blogs, Camille as your personality is starting to shine through (instead of just being a lightning rod as you were last season). I felt for you on Game Night and I did have a little giggle, you CLEARLY were trying to stay clear of all the drama... good for you for keeping it classy. The Richards sisters certainly weren't! It made me sick to my stomach to see a queen bee and a wanna bee try and ice someone new out. Just one other thing, Treat your divorce just like a business transaction. Use a rational level head. That was the best advice my dad gave me when I went through it. You can worry about the emotional piece after all is said and done. All is not fair in love and war/divorce.
Luv u Camille!! Although it's no ones place to cast judgement on another, regardless of class or income, I really didn't think much of you last season, but, (and I'm sure it's of no consequence in reality) I think you have had an amazing transformation, presumably from your current life experiences, and I really see the genuine, kind hearted person that u r! It's like you've completely shaken off the arrogant, self-consumed, celebrity flub and become a REAL person. Kudos to proving not all rich people are soul-less!! Rock on girlfriend!!
YOU kept a lot to yourself last year. But you never came out with both guns like Brandi did. She was in the wrong. Not when your new on the show. I think you are a down to earth lady with a lot of class. But when Brandi said she was sorry she did not mean it. She even said so. She better do some major suckin up. I have a lot of respect for you in all that you have been through. Good Luck
Still wounded from the divorce and healing.. So sad to hear you admit to that, especially since you are a beautiful woman and the mother of two charming children. Stay strong, many women have been through this kind of disaster and have emerged better than before.
