I already touched on Game Night in my last blog, but I do want to address a couple of comments Kim made that evening.
First: slut pig -- that was a riot. Hilarious, I loved that. We should have slut pig shirts made. Between that and "Big hands, Big feet, Big disappointment," we could have a whole line this season.
Now to Kim's other comment, when she mentioned me making her uncomfortable last year: I thought Kim's comment was a bit sarcastic, and even though she was joking I felt that it was a bit of a dig. It hurt for a second, but, after everything I’ve been through -- "sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me." I think when you’ve been through so much, the catty stuff doesn't seem as important. But at that second, it did bite a bit, because I've never gone after Kim. I've never said anything negative about her, and, if anything, I've always been fair to Kim. When Brandi cornered me and asked me a very uncomfortable question, I didn’t want to say anything about that because it’s not my business.
Prayers for your Mom. I lost my Dad in 2001 to Kidney Cancer...it still hurts. I was shocked by Kim saying that to you. You were in Kyle's crosshairs last year, I never heard or saw you say anything bad about Kim. Oh well, some people prefer to be a victim.
Somehow I don' t think you would think "slut pig" was funny if the comment was directed at YOU. Kim and Kyle were both out of line with the finger pointing and name calling.
It is everyone's responsibility to get involved when someone is being bullied. Bullying is everyone's business.
Camille, Kudos to you. I have absolutely fallen in love with you this season. You are now showing who you are. Last season, you were going through so much and it seems you are in a much happier place this season- post divorce. Sending lots of love and healing energy to your beautiful mother. The pride she had for you during your speech last night was such a lovely moment. Hang in there girl- this sassy sistah from the ATL loves you, as do so many others this season.
Go Brandi!! You were being bullied and you stuck up for yourself!! Shame on those bully sisters! It's just a shame that the others did not defend you better. Camille, shame on you, too!! Dana is just a phoney climber. I'm over this show.
Camillie, I think you should get your own show like Bethenny did. You don't need the other housewives and their drama.
You & Adrienne are my new faves, please don't get caught up in Kyle's pettiness! You've come a long way and I really like the Camille I'm seeing. Your whole demeanor has changed, you seem much more at ease. I wish you well!
Camille is right about her cause. Millions of families deal with cancer. It is a very difficult thing to go thru. I give her mother credit for staying so positive. A true testiment to the human spirit. I just wish the ladies at the BH table could have discussed this important issue rather than act like inmature school girls. They need to grow up.
Bless your mom and bless your heart. I can tell you are trying to stay out of the drama mess this year. Good for you.
I think these ladies are very childish and need to grow up I will not watch the show any more. This is for teenage girls not adult women.
i'm really enjoying you this season, camille. you're not as defensive as you appeared to be last season.(please don't take that as an insult, i'm just not sure how else to put it) and i think that's b/c you were "new" to the group. even though it was the show's first season last year, i think the other women all knew each other one way or another. hope your mother goes back into remission. God bless her! like you said, EVERYONE has been affected by cancer. and it's a horrible thing to go through, but i'm so glad your mother is doing well. on a couple of side notes: 1) i believe that the wedding planner for pandora was the inspiration for "father of the bride." 2) as a grammar "nut," i appreciate how you don't butcher the english language. and you are obviously very knowledgeable on a plethora of subjects. i enjoy your expansive vocabulary- it's refreshing! good luck with everything and can't wait to watch the rest of this season of RHOBH!
I understand that after your difficult year you don't want to be in the middle of drama. However, Brandi was clearly attacked by Kyle and Kim and none of the women present stood up for her or asked the others to back down. Yet, after Brandi left you were all consoling Kim and Kyle as if they were victimized. It takes a person of courage to stand up when someone is being bullied and it was disheartening to realize that neither you, Dana, nor Taylor took a stand.
Camille, it is your business when you see someone getting picked on unfairly. I actually was more uncomfortable watching you, Taylor, and Dana sit on the sidelines and allow these women to act that way. I cannot imagine just sitting there while grown women giggle and laugh at not wanting someone to be on their team. Kyle is mean girl leader and the rest of you will do anything to be her friend. So sad...I would hope you aren't that person.
Camille, you were to unprovoked focus of the high school mean girl Kyle last year. This year Brandi is the unprovoked focus of high school mean girl Kyle. She has chosen both of you during your divorce crises! Does she fear her hunk divorcing her? Such crude rudeness is opposite of what the show could represent. Hope they dump the 2 sisters and a-kissing Dana while keeping you other classy ladies.. for a great show.
I just want you to know Camille that I think you are a great person and even though you have been through a lot with your divorce, you have still maintained your dignity. I am going through a horrible divorce as well and know how tough it is dealing with bitter ex-husbands. (I actually have gone through 2 divorces: husband 1 cheated on me and husband 2 physically abused me).
Nearly every time I go on the internet, I see obnoxious comments from your ex-husband which must be very difficult for you. I hope you know that the majority of the people out there support you and think he is a big time LOSER. I know that I have been through a lot as well, but at least I do not have to deal with all the public humiliation that you have endured.
I think it is really wonderful that you have moved on with your life with your children. It is very admirable that you are involved in charities as shown on the show the other night. (I am an Attorney and I also have gotten nervous and tongue tied when I have had to speak in Court). You did great!
I hope the best for you and your kids in your new life together. Prayers and good thoughts to your mother for a full recovery.
Camille, I appreciate and understand your not wanting to be so heavily involved in the drama on the show, but it *is* "your business" when someone is being bullied right in front of you. Kim' behavior was off the chain and clearly she was under the influence of something. Do you expect people to sit by and say NOTHING when such insanity is occurring right in their face? I am disappointed by your comments concerning game night. Don't know if it will change as the season goes on...I hope so. And I pray your mother recovers well.
I was disappointed to see you join in with the rabid dog attack on Brandi. You had been a class act until then. I was rather hoping you would defend her when Kyle once again attacked her for not admonishing her son for peeing on the grass(he's four, she was on crutches and already nervous, she probably did not want to call attention to the incident by screaming across the yard to "put that thing away!") It seems to me that Brandi cannot win with that crew. But you did a great job at the cancer event--your mother looked so proud of you.
Still loving you this season. I don't blame you for wanting to stay out of the whole Brandi/Kyle/Kim mess. No one was going to "win" that fight. Sending you and your mom lots of prayers... she looked beautiful last night (and so did you).
From day one I always like you. It is ashamed the behavior of Kyle and Kim. (Specially Kile).
I will pray for your mom fast recovery.
Camille, Back and better than ever this season. Just watch your step, as I now see how mean K&K can be... was rooting for them last season... this season, NOT SO MUCH. You look fab and I wish you all the best for your mom's health.
You truly are becoming my favorite - NO ONE believes that your ex husband GAVE you the real houswives as a parting gift. I believe he just doesn't want to be overlooked. Too late.
I lost my mother to breast cancer 25 years ago. She was 59. I was young, so she missed out on meeting my husband and holding my babies and watching her beloved family grow. It comforts me a little to know that she and my dad were there with open arms to welcome my teenage son into heaven.
Your mother has such a sweetness and grace about her. When you see how attractive and well put together she is you would never know all the pain she has endured in cancer treatment. How many people do we all pass each day that are either afflicted by cancer personally or have a loved one that is standing up to cancer? It is like having a dark cloud hovering over the family at all times. Even when they are said to be in remission, you still feel it lurking behind the next corner.
I join the thousands who are praying for your precious mother.
Opposite to Kyle who was portrayed very well last season and notsomuch this season - Camille was horrendous last season and I couldn't stand her. However, this season she stands head and shoulders as my favorite of all the Wives...
It seemed that you were so relieved that you were not the target of the sisters anymore this season that you could not even speak up (as much as you did last season) to defend Brandi from being continuously bullied or to just difuse the situation. It is like you would not say anything to upset the sisters so you would be always in their good side.
First I want to say that your mother is such a cute little lady!!!! I pray for her and your family. I would like to add, as much as I can know, that I think Kim really does like you. I feel that might have been part of her problem last year in not knowing how to "stand up" for Kyle at times. I'm sure she DID feel like she wanted to, should and at times had reason to stand up for her sister last season YET she liked you too much to "attack" you. I think it truly was JUST a bad joke. I thought it was nice that Kyle wanted to make sure that you KNEW that. I think Kim just assumed that you did because that ya'll were friends. I'm glad you are back this season. I really have enjoyed you this year!
I never once heard nor did I see you ever do or say anything to Kim last year. You always seemd kind to her and did not hold anything against her re: Kyle. Not sure where Kim is getting that.
First - I am sorry about what your mother is going through. My mother has 1 year of skin cancer remission under her belt at the moment. Her cell count is still low and she gets sick a lot. I do understand what it is like and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Second- Slut Pig is NOT funny. I don't know if Brandi has come around to joking about that now or what, but I see absolutely no humor in being hurtful to someone like that. No more humor than meth accusations anyway. If there is some inside joke there, you should have let us in on it.
I'm sad to see that after seeing how they treated Brandi you are joining in with Kim and Kyle by laughing at what they said. I was starting to like you this season but don't stoop to their level. You out of them all know how Kyle can be unfair and mean. Come Camille!
You are truly coming into your own! You are so much more likable this season. I suppose all the stress you were under and trying to keep quiet was so much on you last season. You're such a doll. They say there is no fool like an old fool, step on up to the plate Kelsey!!!!! You're gonna be fine.
you made everyone proud!! you're such a sweet lady you deserve kind regard public speaking isn't so easy, but yours was a job well done! brava to milady CAMILLE!!
Keep up the good work, Camille. Hope your mom gets along ok. Watch out for Kyle and Kim. They're letting their true selves come out this year. Love watching you, Adrienne, Brandi, and Lisa, when she's not up Kyle's behind.
Seriously? You think "pig slut" is a riot?! Let me call you that and see if you find the humor in it. C'mon Camille...I was just starting to like you. Don't take issue with a minor comment like the one Kim threw at you but laugh at something far more crude. And, in the future, if you're at a party where someone is being bullied to tears, PLEASE STEP IN AND TRY TO PUT A STOP TO IT or, at the very least, offer that person some comfort....NOT the person who was doing the bullying. You wrapped your arms around Kim but everyone left Brandi in the room to find her own crutches. Nice. wow.
Last year I didn't really care for you but this year you are my favorite! Last year you weren't protrayed in the best light and now I think that Kyle probably was jealous of you and she can be quite a bully if she thinks she is right. I am glad that you stayed on the show. I have recently lost my dad to bladder cancer. My prayers are with you and your mother. Enjoy all that you have together!!
Great idea @ the shirts! I lol all the time at both those "sayings"! Do not even worry about what Kim says - u r in a different league than her - much more classy and ladylike! I think it is great to be giving some of your hard earned time and money to cancer research! You had to put up w enuff BS to get that divorce money from that pig Kelsey (so gross) now put it to good use! Kharma! for sure! XOXOXOX
Camille - You are my favorite housewife. Last year you were not protrayed in a good light and I do think that Kyle was jealous of you and can be a bully when she thinks she is right. I am glad that you stayed on the show. I have recently lost my dad to bladder cancer. My prayers are with your mother and you. May you enjoy all the time together. That is what life is about -and you seem to be able to rise above all the drama.
Camille, you and Adrianna are my favorites. You two are the only ones with class! keep it up! love ya!
Shame on you for not standing up to Kyle and Kim when you saw them go after Brandi, especially after last year and her constant makes digs at you. It makes you appear Wishy Washy and weak.
Camille, I hope your Mother is doing better today. You did a beautiful job with the cancer charity event, you are our fave on the show.
Camille, you truly are my favorite this year. You have just come out of your shell and showed what a beautiful, caring, generous person you are -- it's so nice to watch.
Camille, last year I couldn't stand you, but now you're possible one of my favorites. You've seem to have really grown as a person and don't seem bitter or angry (hey maybe you could give Brandi some lessons). So sorry to hear about your mom hope she makes a full recovery.
You should have defended Brandi...Just because you are friends with Kyle and Kim, it is not right to turn the cheek to appalling behavior.
Trying not to be rude about Kim, but, how seriously can you take a "dig" from her? On another note, you look amazing Camille! xxxo
So sorry about your mom, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I loved you last year but you are my favorite housewife this year. Hang in there and stay as classy as you are!
