Camille explains her precarious situation at the White Party, and how difficult it was watching the evening unfold now.
Posted by Camille Grammeron Dec 19, 20110
This was the second White Party I attended at Kyle's house and I was excited to go and see everybody. This time last year there was friction between Kyle and I, which was by now long gone. So I looked forward to spending quality time with the girls, enjoying the party and celebrating together. I really didn't have any concerns about seeing everyone, even though obviously things were going on.
Russell had emailed me about 2:30 am the night of Pandora's bachelorette party. I first showed Adrienne the email. She immediately came to my defense and questioned Russell's right to send me an email of that nature.
At the party I was in the backyard with Brandi and my girlfriend Dedra talking to the guests. I wasn't aware that inside the house Kyle, Lisa, and Adrienne were talking about Russell and Taylor. Until I saw this episode, I didn't know exactly what the conversation was. It was difficult to watch it go down.
I haven't seen Season 1 yet, so i will say I found you on this season to be classy, friendly and honest...however I would have liked for you to be a little more supportive of Brandy when she was getting whipped at Game Night...and I would like to see a little more of your life. I found you not on enough, and playing it too safe.
Camille to be honest, I did not like you last season, but I guess you were going thru a lot in you life. I am glad is over, and I am so happy to see you dating again and looking beautifull dressed in white. Bet the people who made your life miserable on the show last season are green with envy.
Hi Camille, You are so cute and sweet and I adore you! You are the only reason I watch the show! I live in the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area and I am so glad you are on the show to represent women like us! I too am a trained dancer and model and was involved in a long term relationship with a real jerk who happened to have been an"A" lister. He did the same thing to me that Kelsey did to you so I can relate to you on so many levels. I hope you are happy with your new hunk of burnin love!! Just have fun, you deserve it sweetie! xoxoxo Pia
When they show you speaking on camera with that black dress on and all your "going out" make up - well, you're just a knock-out! I so enjoyed seeing you on the show this year and Bravo to you for rising above the issues you have and have had in your life and coming out smelling like a rose. I wish you success in your life, happiness with your children, and I'm sure you fill find the love of your life! You had the courage to tell it like it was with Taylor and that is a true friend whether she liked it or not. I hope to see you next year. All the pettiness aside, this show seems to be the most "normal" of all the RH shows.
Dear Camille, Please don't leave the show! You are an amazing woman and would just love an opportunity to meet you in person and tell you how much I think of you. I hope you find love and you so deserve it such as we all do! In my world, everything happens for a reason and that skunk you were married to was so not good enough for you. Be thankful for your children and move forward...I think you are about to come into a wonderful time in your life. Sometimes it's necessary for one to go through hard times to get to the good times! You will come through this as you already are and will have the man/relationship you truly deserve! Don't ever stop being who you are Camille and continue to tell it like it is! If you don't come back I wish you much success & happiness in your new life to come.
Camile Ive got to see you somewhat different than this pitiful,scarry eyed ,anxious person,I think that's what Kelsey is tired of ,the pitiful Camile.Seem to always be looking sorry and vulnerable.Don't take it out on Taylor.She is a open book.Kyle you trapped in your web and ruined her all white party.If you're so sad why do you spread it across the world.Keep away from happy people and heal yourself.Smile ,genuinely smile and the world smiles with you.!
Hi Camille, I agree with all the negative about Taylor. She's a complete MESS and will always be if she does not stop being the pursuer in a relationship as she was with Russell. She needs to allow the man to pursue her, and keep GOD in her life. She says in the beginning of the show that she's "found her voice and not afraid to use it" - well, we know she does not know how to speak for sure - she's a loud mouth, and wants to blame everyone for her "poor choices and mistakes". But glad you are doing better, after your x-hubby is now gone. He is a COWARD. And you do not need a coward, but a MAN who can lead you in a path that is for YOUR best. He will cherish you, so I hope you get to meet him. Take care, and I enjoyed you this season.
Your image this year is so different. In the past I found you false. This year, you seem so genuine and real. You have truly become America's sweetheart, and I hope you find true happiness in love. You deserve it. You were very kind to Taylor when she apologized, and it made it so easy to love you. Obviously, Taylor was in the wrong, and yet you were gracious enough to move passed it and support her. Way to go Camille. You are a classy woman.
You were so wonderful this year,must have been cause you were not with that annoying loser Kelsey anymore and I wish he stops causing you troubles.He is undeserving of you and of his kids..I almost vomited when he was receiving his award and thanking his wife.Having a baby meanwhile he forgets about his own children only to ask for them when it becomes convenient.I hate that guy.
You on the other hand are lovely and please return for next year....would surely be missed by me.Take care
As I read responses on this blog, what's this talk about your not being on RHOBH any longer? I mean, if another season is forthcoming, and I hope that happens as I'm an avid watcher... if you're not there, then I likely won't watch RHOBH any longer. I think you're fantastic, and have everything going for you. More of RHOBH... and more of Camille!
Camille, you're a class act and very funny. I hope they invite you back! You're honest and lovely and have shown a beautiful willingness to evolve and move on. Everyone should show such strength of character, sez me!
Camille, I didn't care for you the first season but after this season I see you for the truly kind and sensitive person you are. You are the voice of reason in that bunch of mean girls. Taylor needs attention and it dosen't matter if it is negative. Taylor is a want-a-be and will do anything to hog the camera......... You and Adrienne are really sincere in your feelings. Brandi keeps it real and is really a breath of fresh air. She actually helps Lisa lighten up. As for the two disfunctional mean girls( Kyle and druggie KIM) the show needs them to keep the drama going but I really really hope you come back next season. Kyles good friend Fay Resnic was one of the Nicole Brown Simpson Crew, a bunch of loose women sleeping around with anyone with money. I knew them back in the 80's when Nicole was driving her convertable white two seater Mercedes Benz in Brentwood, CA on OJ's dime. Hang in there and stay on the show!! Congratulations on your new Greek friend!
You deserve the best.
I have to admit, I wasn't a huge fan of yours last season. But I have really come to enjoy your presence and input on the show.
The way you handled the situation with Taylor was perfect, in my opinion and you had nothing to apologize for. I was glad to see you get a little feisty during the impromptu "therapy session" that Taylor tried to orchestrate.
I think you are a loyal friend and someone who has risen above a highly public heartbreak.
I sincerely hope that you will be back on the show next season.
Camille- You are a class act! Whatever you do in the future, I wish you much success.
You were put in a terrible position by Taylor with the lawsuit issue- SHE instigated that by running home and telling her husband what you said but not telling him what SHE had told all of you! She's a hypocrite and I would not allow her around me or my children for anything. Taylor is a user- just like Cedric was to Lisa. I know everyone wants to have sympathy for her husband's death, but guess what? Taylor doesn't even have enough respect for her husband or her own daughter to not try to make a buck of the sad event. I have no sympathy for her what-so-ever. What a horrible way to treat Russell's family- it borders on an evil deed for me.
The other thing that bothers me about the White Party and the lawsuit was- the people outside telling Taylor not to come in were worried about THEIR OWN BUTTS and said so!! You were just the excuse they used to begin the conversation- why does everyone blame you for this happening? You were not even aware of what was going on, nor were you consulted about what to do about it.
Needless to say, I hope you are part of season 3 of RHOBH and I certainly hope that Taylor, Kim, and Kyle are not! The reason for Taylor is obvious, and Kim also. Kyle is such a bully and I can't stand her anymore. Don't even want to hear her speak. I hope the season 3 group includes Lisa, Brandi, Adrienne, and they find some other real and normal people for the rest of the group. If you all continue, this will become too much like RHONY and will implode. Most of us do not want to watch that kind of stuff- those who do should watch The Bad Girl Club.
I wish you all that is good for you and your family moving forward. Hope to see you next season. xx
Camille, I hope you stay of the show. You have too much class to take cheap shots at Kelsey, so I am glad to see that has stopped as it only makes YOU look bitter and petty. Best of luck to you and BRAVO - keep Camille on the show!
Sarah Frank, maybe you missed the part in Camille's blog where she says she called Taylor, repeatedly, to apologize. Taylor herself alluded to Camille texting her and blowing off her texts. Adrienne was right - Taylor put them all in a very awkward position, and Taylor's obvious mental issues (like in Colorado) and victim stance probably wore thin on all of them after a while. Look at how impatient Kyle got with Kim the moment she thought Ken was controlling and that Kim should move out. I'm sure there's a lot these women have been holding in, all season - it just happened that Camille was the one to snap first. I don't blame her. Taylor was out of control at Lisa's tea party, accusing Lisa of saying things that SHE NEVER SAID. Taylor's been very skilled at turning things back on people, and you can see it in Season 1 too.
If it's true they aren't bringing you back because you don't have enough "drama" I won't be watching...What, are they waiting for another death?? Is that the drama they need? My the association guilt wore off quick in Hollywood. I'm sure this won't be printed, but at least I wrote it..
I agree with many of the other posts. You did nothing wrong at Lisa's Tea. In the limo, it seemed to me, Taylor had manipulated Russell into thinking you had said something over the top. I believe Taylor is manipulating a lot of people - Russell, the housewives, the public - and hoping to gain attention for the inferiority complex she appears to have. I am a single parent and have been for many years. I was in an abusive situation. I am really tired of hearing Taylor whine, "You have no idea what I'm going through. I'm really struggling......and on....and on." Taylor is in a similar situation that several of us, including yourself, have been in. Rather than get herself together for the sake of her daughter, it appears she wines and cries CONSTANTLY. Thank you for dealing with your personal situation in a classy manner, for not turning into the constant victim and for putting the welfare of your children above that of your own.
Camille, I honestly hope it's not true that Bravo is not considering you next season!! If that is the case, it is probably because you acted in class and dignity this season, and they want someone who is full of drama, and cause chaos with all the other gals. SHAME ON THEM!!!! I hope they reconsider, but if not, you are an amazing woman, who saw how you behaved the season before, and changed your behavior. Good luck to you Camille, and your beautiful new boyfriend!!!
I hope Bravo keeps you on the show. Kyle and Kim's ghetto family drama should get the boot. You are such a hoot to watch. If Bravo gets rid of you and Brandi I will not watch RHOBH anymore. Hopefully Bravo sees this. Peace and Blessings!
Camille, you don't deserve an apology from Taylor, you owe her one. Its one thing to confront her off camera about her abusive relationship but if someoneconfides in you that she is being abused and you share this private information on camera, obviously there will be consequnces for that person. Any thoughtful person would understand that. Shame on you!!!!
Camille, I truly hope the rumors of Bravo replacing you are FALSE! I love you to death and have since season one. You've been through so much with your highly public divorce, Kelsey threatning to take your kids, etc. You were also put through the ringer last season. I could understand you playing your cards close to the vest this year, but it didn't even matter - we all adore you so much. I love watching your journey as you come into your own, heal from your divorce and simply become more of the wonderful person you already are. Bravo needs to dump that wacko Taylor. If next season is like this one, I'm going to hang my hat and stop watching. Seriously NO MORE TAYLOR DRAMA CRAP! Love you Camille ~ I wish you and your children the best of everything.
Not a big reality fan, but have to say you have more class than all of the others combined (other than Adrian, she appears sincere, and Brandi)......In fact, this is the only reality show I watch, and if they decide to end your contract I will be one of (I hope) many viewers that have no interest in watching Kyle (I think she has a share/buy in this show) pimp out her family, her sister's addiction, her "best friend" Taylor's abuse while she does back flips and and the splits, continuing to be the embarrassing drama queen.
I truly hope, if you choose to stay in entertainment, find something more fitting, rather than another narcissistic reality show. RHOBH is just an older version of the "Bad Girls Club" shown on Oxygen, while the RHOBH flash more diamonds, they wear even more weaves and lashes, increasing that train wreck factor up one more level.
I sincerely wish you well, IMHO, they used you the first season as the "rich bad girl", and now in the second season you haven't reached the level of nonsense and drama that was anticipated, regardless of how Kim and Kyle and the rest of the producers tried! Good for you!! A true class act. Not what reality shows are looking for, unfortunately.
Camille, Why aren't you blogging? I miss hearing your take on things.
I was mad that Kelsy announced his wife being pregers at the globes. I hope you are ok after that. I agree with others that you have beautiful kids and you look MORE beautiful this year. Peace becomes you.
I was glad that Taylor appologized to you on film and not in private. She was horrible on film, so the appology should have been on film....I feel. You were right about her not being honest and soooo calm at the Malabou house, it was amazing to watch.
Ihope to hear from you soon.
This season you have showed everyone what you really seem to be and that is a lovely person inside and out. Being married to Kelsey made you come off snobbish. You are better than that and it shows. I wish you nothing but love and happiness. xxoo
I was not a big fan of Camille's last season, She seemed very standoffish.
But a lesson learnt because even though some one is standoffish does not mean they are a bitch.
Camille has shown real class through her divorce and has shown class in the new season of housewives. It is hard to keep composed when you are cheated on and your children are tossed aside by the Father for a new family.
I think those kids are lucky to have her.
Camille-You have shown everyone including the ex-husband that you can rise above difficult situations and come out better than ever. I think you are clearly the winner in this situation and it was Kelsey's loss. You are looking more beautiful than ever. His loss! Enjoy your life to the fullest.
Honestly, Camille, I have been a fan. However, when you chose to "have to be right" when Taylor was opening her heart to you all at the Sur opening, I was shocked that you would choose this while she was in the midst of some major healing and on shaky ground, in need of support. Suddenly, your sweet, "I'm all about YOU!" facial expressions felt false and manufactured to me.
Camille, I just wanted to say that after watching the 1/16/12 episode in particular, you have been really kind,sweet, and forgiving to Taylor. I wasn't a huge fan of yours in the beginning, but now I am one of your biggest fans. It is so nice to see you reach out to Taylor in her time of need, especially since you are having your own problems and issues with Kelsey. I am glad to say that my first impression of you seems to be so very wrong. Hang in there and rely on your friendships and family to get your through.
I feel bad for you after this weekend. Last year you came across so bad I
didn't like you at all. When the season started I was shocked as to the changes
you had made in your life. From experience I know it isn't easy but you take
those 2 precious children of yours and love them to death. Bring them up to
respect people, especially your son. No one deserves the treatment you have
received from your X. Men can be so selfish.
Camille....I love you this season! I think you would be a hoot to hang out with! Taylor owes you a HUGE apology and you should accept. Your gorgeous and I'm so glad your rid of what's his name. Your way too good for that!
Can't wait to see you next season. My 'girl friends" and I, think your the best!
