Hello to all of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Fans everywhere.
I got exhausted just watching the show. It makes me cringe in so many ways.
I just had gotten back from Hawaii and was off to NYC with my family and a few friends. I remember how excited I was to go see my husband and best friend. It had been at least two months since we had seen each other, because of both of our busy schedules.
First, I have to say the apartment was tastefully decorated. It was my first choice when I had gone to NYC apartment hunting with Kelsey a few months earlier. It's funny to watch myself talking about the apartment in this episode because it only proves the cameras can't be there to catch everything. Kelsey was becoming increasingly concerned about the size of the apartment after living there a few months. I was wrong about the square footage. He likes his personal space and with only two thousand square feet or so it was going to be difficult to meet his needs, not to mention the kids. I guess I had internalized Kelsey's concerns and shared them with the camera.
In the few weeks leading to this trip, Kelsey became less interested in when I would be moving to NYC to join him with the kids. The one thing he did share with me was that he was thinking he wanted to move to NYC full time. I told myself he was still in the Honeymoon Phase with his play, but truthfully I realized something was wrong. You know the uneasy feeling that never leaves, it's there when you wake up and there when you go to bed. When I arrived in town I couldn't wait to see him. He just wasn't the same loving partner that had left me a few months before. It was a sad day for me. In spite of my personal disappointment I wanted my children to be happy and enjoy our time together as a family. And I still had no idea of what would be coming.
Although I don't like the comments you say in your commentaries, I have to say that it is nice that you continue to invite Kyle over with the hope of moving past your misunderstandings.
Also, I do not think you should quit the show just because people have an unfavorable view of you. If you were to tone down your commentaries, I think you could win people over again.
Camile just wants what Kyle has...a happy life and family so she reads a book and creates war. Kinda like Bush.
I am not at all sure that there is a genuine person underneath, but I concur with everything else that you said. This woman incenses me also - incredibly condescending, to say the very least.
Camille I really like you, i think your sweet and have a handful of responsibilities with your family and business, I feel for you because, I feel like I am you, I too have had a husband who has strayed. For so long I didnt understand that it wasn't me, and worse the other woman usually does not in comparison even measure. (it had happened more than once in my marriage)I want to just send out LOVE to you. Its really tough when you can't imagine your man choosing a young woman who has no significance,accolades or paid her dues taking care of his A_ _! and he is hanging out with plain jane. In retrospect that was a better commpliment to me. But the idea that his Children are like jewekry in the safe in our second home Appalls us. Especially when WE LOve and the Sun and Moon rise with them. I Just Want To Love you and say think seriously about getting a promotional coach, because with so many personal problems our pain can show thru if we are Not coached by professionals on how to portray thru the pain, the public is a mean and cruel audience, but I See You, I See You are Good.
You're my favorite housewife. I think you're just beautiful, and am a little perplexed at how many people are jumping in here saying mean stuff, when no one saw the argument between you and Kyle. No one in TV-watching land that was actually there... that is! Anyway, you are a very pretty, vivacious lady, and don't let the haters get you down! I hope that you're mom's going to be OK, and also that things work out amenably between you and Kelsey.
What you say about others is usually a reflection of how you feel about yourself...
Camille it doesn't make you look good when you put others down and talk about the "pecking order".
Fellow watchers, I tell ya I only watch this show just to read your insightful comments. What a hoot you all are. I love the different takes and perceptions. While the show doesn’t keep my grounded in reality you all sure do keep it all grounded in reality. Keep it up everybody!
I think that Camille is a beautiful, intelligent, strong willed woman. I also think she is boatsful, conceited, and frequently speaks highly of herself & all that she has. It’s not very classy, and for most people I would think it’s a turn off. I’ve read several posts from viewers that all seem to say the same thing. You’ve got a lot going for you, and it appears as though somewhere inside of you is this great person that people want to get to know; however it’s a little hard to see through all of the narcissism.
Completely agree with this post - Camille you are a beautiful woman inside and out and how you could handle all that you were/are handling with the grace that you have shown is beyond me... everyone has a bad day... and I echo tify2424 sentiments when I say as a woman I respect you and wish you nothing but better times ahead for you and your family...
I completely agree 100% with this post.. that's what I don't get, not even after she sees herself saying and doing all these things she doesn't apoplogize. she really thinks she is right!!
Camile. When you help somebody you don't go on national TV to say it, that is so superfitial. No matter how generous you are. You wait for that person to say it. Kyle is right you need help and very soon.
Camille, i was pretty neutral and honestly trying to see both sides, up until last nights episode. First I think the whole thing is catty! Secondly, you don't seem to be able to let it go, she obviously really hit a nerve for you to have been affected that way. You just keep going on and on and on. LET IT GO, if you dont' want it to eat you up like it is, then you have to learn when to let things go. So you don't like her, don't want to be her friend? Then don't! Just be a lady and walk away, be polite and kind....but no one is saying you have to be bosom buddies. You say you are very shy but frnakly you seem quietly narcisstic to me, you seem so very full of yourself, and humility is not one of your strong points. I watch you over and over, and its clear you like yourself very much, and think highly of yourself but really you have to look at how you comment on things, spoken with the soft sexy voice, batting the eyelashes, you have to see yourself the way others are seeing you and therefore, judging you by. I am sorry but i am being truthful. Please always know that being humble and quietly confident are admirable traits, one which is sure to gain you many friends. I think you need reality check with all due respect.
I don't think that Kyle was trying to insult you when she was having the conversation with you at the hotel. You said, "I'm really a shy person" and she said "Don't be shy, don't be insecure." A lot of people think that the words 'shy' and 'insecure' are one in the same, even though they're not. So I think that was just a misunderstanding.. not a 'dig.' She wasn't trying to insult you, she was operating under a different definition of the word 'shy.' Obviously there are underlying issues between you two and you'll never be good friends, but in this case, I think you picked a bad fight with Kyle. I think it would speak volumes for your case if you would just admit that you misunderstood her, and that could be explained and probably forgiven due to everything else that was going on in your life at the time.
I thought the best part of the show tonight was when you were spouting off about how you believe women should build each other up; celebrate each other... And in the same breath you told Kyle that if she was jealous that she needed to get over it.... Ummm... I don't know ANYONE that would consider being called jealous a compliment, or that would think that you were celebrating or building them up.
That's kind of the pot calling the kettle black.... Isn't it?
Did you dear when Nick said kelsey was a great singer and Camille said thank you like she's deserves the compliment?? And the whole to time she was with her mom she kept talking about all the tests she has to do because of the genes that fun in her family... Everything has to be about her.
Your comment is the best yet....way to break it down girl!!! (I assume, girl)....:) You a hit the nail on the head, that is exactly what we would all liked to have heard. She would have gotten my respect!
Pecking order your EX-HUSBAND. Lol. You are a hot mess girl! Your eyes were the ones poping out of your head. You don't celebrate women you said it yourself, you don't have girl-friends (who the heck do you celebrate yourself. Camile makes Kelly look damn good! I can't believe you would even act this selfish on national television. BTW who invites their mother with them to get their nails done, taking her to dinner would of been so much better!!!
Life has a way of giving us a slice of humble pie just when we need it. You def need to be more humble. Stop thinking everyone is jealous of you, and stop measuring the worth of your life by how many possessions you have.
Camille you are very histrionic and have incredibly poor insight. I really do agree that you can use a massive amount of therapy. You created this whole situation. I really feel for Kyle! You owe her a huge apology!!!
You really seem to be out of touch with reality. Please do your self a favor and take a look at what you feel is important in life.
Camille, Iam a big fan of all the housewives since orange county. The reason we, I mean people like the average ordinary person watches is because it's fascinating to watch the fab life that most of us don't have and then there is the drama. There is always a opinion to who is the favorite housewife, and who u love to hate. Watching you on the show (it's like 4 to 5 episodes) I have to say u come across very unlikeable at first. I think it started with the comment (I made kelsey who he is) kelsey is who he is and u are who u are. Focus on you. I think there is a really nice person in you, caught in in alot of drama and the high life. Wasn't a big fan, but reading your blogs, it made me feel like coming to your defense. None of us no what its like to walk in your shoes. There is two sides to every story. We only see random glimpes in to your life. No one has the right to judge. I think u need to kick it with the girls, cause men come and go. Best of luck, and a huge fan of the housewives. You are turning my opinion around girl. hang in there! Friendships are forever. you got it going on, don't flaunt it. Class shines thru. Happy Holidays!
Bloggers... you do realize this is a show??? They may call it reality but come on. The only thing that was real was the extremely awkward moments between Camille and Kelsey and that was really sad to watch. I don't wish those kind of moments on anyone. Although sadly, it made for great entertainment.
I think it's interesting the way the majority of people believe Kyle and not you....don't you? could we all be jeolous? I think this is an opportunity for you to question your authenticity. Best of luck to you!
I have to agree. I've never been so disgusted with ones behavior as Camiles. The self centeredness is nauseating. I think she has alot of pain ahead. Her ego deserves every bit of it. I'm hoping she will learn from it and become a better person.
Camille,i honestly think you over dramatize everything...I think YOU are your biggest cheerleader. You are a beautiful woman,but your personality leads people to believe your insecure and live through your husband or soon to be ex-husband Kelsey..You've mentioned many many many times kelsey this and kelsey that..nobody conjures up this stuff but you...This isn't a good look for you Camille and i really wish you could get over yourself because maybe,just maybe this is one of the issues within your marriage..you seem to be needy,smothering and whiny. I wish you all the look Camille...i'm still pulling for you.
The episode I watched tonight just made me cringe at your self-deception. I truly hope you can find someone around you who will tell you the truth. I only hope watching the show will help you see how wrong you are and how terrible it is for you to label Kyle miserable and pernicious, when you are the one who is exactly acting in those ways.
Sincerely and with best wishes that you will be able to see yourself and acknowledge your mistakes,
You are one crazy person crying out for help. You are so insecure and yet think you are better than anyone else. Get over yourself! You had to blow Kyle situation out of proportion because you are clearly jealous of her beauty and her lovely family. May God bless your heart and allow you to find inner beauty.
Camille - your behavior was inappropriate on tonigh's episode. You admitted these ladies were not your friends. So, why get into it with Kyle? Kyle did the respectful thing and apologized. Whether it was sincere or not is irrelevant!!! I just feel bad that you portrayed yourself in an ugly way. Hopefully, you did some self reflection after that episode as your comments regarding pecking order, local realtor, etc...were low blows. Not sure where that came from. Hopefully, the episodes will get better.
Btw Kyle's comments were pretty tame by contrast. Try a real fight and see how you come out of it. You are lame.
The problem with this particular housewife is that she forgets when she speaks about surrounding herself with positive people who love her, she is actually speaking of her hired help who are dependent on her financially and are simply "yes men and women". Thank goodness you have a close relationship with your Mom. I hope that she will tell you the truth about how your behavior comes across to people and that maybe you should think about the opinions of outsiders who have nothing to gain, yet everything to lose, when they are being brutally honest with you.
Cammille, you seem very self absorbed for sure, no doubt about that. But I think you do believe that is what Kyle said...whether you thought it was implied or verbatim. Kyle is very aggressive so I would have probably assumed she was making a dig as well. Her apology didn't seem sincere and more of a "I need to fix this before my husband loses his job" type of thing. If you could just come down a couple notches and join the rest of the women (and everyone else) it would help you immensly have a better perspective on yourself, your life and all the blessings God has given you! I think you and Kyle should do some community service together.
Poignant words from Teacher 1996, I LOVE IT! It was disgusting the way Camille spoke so highly of her husband and made Kyle's husband seem so irrelevant. But as I was reading some of the comments speaking on Camille's current marriage problems...I guess what goes around comes around, and I hope Kelsey realizes the truth and kept Kyle's husband as his realtor.
Everyone has trying times in their life and there are thousands of people like you that are dealing with divorce and cancer (at the same time), while having children.........the difference is that most of them do not have a staff of nannies, housekeepers, etc. Nor do they have multiple homes. Most people have extreme added pressure in these situations of financial stress.
At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what is going on in your life.......nothing excuses bad manners and selfishness. I think you owe Kyle an apology and need to get some spiritual guidance. Life is not about the number of houses you have, how great your boobs look, or "winning fights". It should be about loving your family, taking care of your friends (without boasting) and trying every day to be a person your children can be proud of.
Please suprise us all and show us that you are thankful for what you have been blessed with and that you have compassion for others!
Camille: I think you and all the ladies are great...but I think you are just a lil full of yourself. I don't think any of the ladies are jealous of you. They have husbands and families and business, and the same goes for you. I don't think that you having a celebrity husband and wonderful family make you above anyone else. ...but I still love ya!
