The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Camille Grammer Opens Up about the Signs She Missed Before Her Divorce

December 13, 2010 07:00 PM by Shayla Perry


In last week’s episode of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we got our first look at what seems to be the beginning of the end of Camille Grammer’s marriage to actor Kelsey Grammer. Now, Camille opens up about what it was like watching herself in that episode, and the signs she missed during her phone conversation with Kelsey about moving to New York.

From Camille Grammer’s Blog:

This week’s episode was another exercise in emotion for me I did know that watching the show throughout the season would be difficult for me at times. I am constantly bombarded with the bad memories of the demise of my marriage. I knew that old memories and emotions would be stirred up. What I didn’t expect was to actually see and remember the clues that I didn’t understand at that time. My marriage was about to come to an abrupt end. This week’s episode had this heart wrenching effect on me: it was the scene where I am talking to my best friend Dedra about a phone conversation I just had with my husband.

Just to explain a little bit of background for you: the plan for our family had always been for Kelsey [Grammer] to move to New York City by himself in February and start the rehearsals for the play. He said he wanted to go out on his own for the first few months because the rehearsal schedule was very grueling, and he wouldn’t have much time or energy to give the family the needed attention we deserve. To move then would involve taking the kids out of school and bringing them cross-country to a new school in the middle of the school year, and during the cold East Coast winter. I would have, of course, done this if he had wanted us there. But under the circumstances it made the most sense for him to leave without us, for the kids to finish the school year and to join him once school let out for the summer. I flew to New York City in February to search with Kelsey for an apartment, as well as to find a school for the kids. They were to participate in a summer school program during July, and then enroll at their new school in the fall. We agreed upon staying through February 2011 until Kelsey finished his run with the play. At that time we would return to Malibu, our friends, and our lives of the last 13 years.

Now back to the phone conversation, Kelsey [Grammer] told me that he had decided he wanted to move to New York full time. He said he felt appreciated there, and he gave me his reasons for wanting to make this move permanent. During the conversation he never once mentioned the impact the move would have on our family. Although I had no real interest in moving back to the East Coast at this time in my life, my biggest concern was uprooting our family. My children are happy here and they have friends and activities that fulfill an important part of their lives. But I assure you, if it was important enough to my husband to do this in his life, I would have supported him and moved. Not because it would have been the easy thing to do, but because I loved him and wanted him to be happy too. Now as I look back on this phone call I realize it was a pivotal moment in my life, and that left me so uneasy. The conversation was fraught with unsaid words and feelings. He was dropping hints, but nothing concrete. At the time it left me sleepless and without appetite. My mind was spinning as it was all new to me. I didn’t know what was real, what was imagined, or what I may have misunderstood. What do I share with friends and family? Who do I turn to? It was so confusing, overwhelming, and troublesome.

Now I realize that it wasn’t what he said that bothered me, it was what he didn’t say. This conversation was a statement about what he wanted for himself, not an invitation for us to join him.

    Camille you began this show with a “I’m better than you” attitude. Everytime you discussed how much better you were than everyone else it was “my husband is an A-list star,he has won an emmey,an oscar” blah,blah,blah,all of the accomplishments you mentioned were Kelsey NOT yours. What have you done,production— really. Everything you touch or do has Kelseys smell on it not yours. You deserve everything you get. I do not pity you because you are mean and you are a liar. No man who watches your show will go near you with a ten foot pole. But hey, you have your “friends” right those crazy bitches and you deserve each other. Ask you powerful friend Allison, if can see my future or better yet, my past. If you believe that I have a bridge in brooklyn I would like to sell you.

    really camille, u want to talk about affairs it doesent take to much to see who u r fooling around with. Gee i dont kiss male friends who r suppose to be married. i dont take motorcycle rides with married male FRIENDS. I mean who did it first would be the question to ask. if u r going to be this hollywood wife and spend money like no tomorrow at least support ur husband and live where ever he lives.. This show is so fake all of these housewives r fake. i like the comment we r moms like everybody else really. Not to many moms in my pta that have a nanny for each kid in fact not one. or a house mgr or a make-up artist that travels with me.. Camille dont make comments about the new wife to be she is what u started out as. Somme 20 something looking for someone with money.So maybe u can go back to pole dancing….

    This is for Sandra, Linda, & Tricia, all you bitches have issues. No one really knows what goes on behind close doors in relationships. Stop hating and get a life. People with money play their lives out the way they chose to. We all reap what we sow in the end. The best thing we can do for ourselves is learn from it all and dont repeat the same foolishness and strive to make a difference in life.

    OMG!! you FEMALE HATERS!! Your lives aren’t spotless either. What Camille does with her then Husband’s money is her own DAM business, if she was a gold-digging Ho Kelsey gave up the benjamins didn’t he?? I agree that kissing and getting cozy with married males is a NO! NO! but dam where is the morals of the men??? People only do what you allow them to do. Cut the woman some slack… She is right about one thing Males do make much BETTER FRIENDS. Females are Judgemental and petty!
