The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Kyle Richards on Camille Grammer’s Dinner Party and Allison Dubois
December 17, 2010 02:00 PM by Shayla Perry
The only thing we can say after last night’s dinner party disaster on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is, “WOW!!!” Luckily, Kyle Richards has had some time to cool down since actually experiencing the madness firsthand, and has offered her thoughts on Camille Grammer’s intentions, her regrets about bringing her friend, Faye Resnick,Â into the mess, and of course, Allison Dubois (did she happen to mention that the show Medium is based on her life?).
From Kyle Richards‘ blog:
Never did I imagine the events that would take place on this episode. When Camille [Grammer] invited me to her house for a cocktail party I was skeptical. However, I have never been one to hold a grudge, and I thought this might be the perfect chance to put New York and Vegas behind us once and for all. I had plans with my friend Faye Resnick for a couple weeks, and was grateful to Camille for allowing me to bring her. I’m not sure why, but I had a feeling that I was going to be ambushed. I knew Camille had two friends coming, and my women’s intuition was telling me that something was up.
I met Faye [Resnick] through my sister, Kathy [Hilton]. I found her to be fun, always in a good mood, and the quintessential girl’s girl. She is the friend that you call at three in the morning when you need a shoulder to cry on. She’s an incredible mother, a talented and successful interior designer, and loves my children like her own. The guilt I have for dragging her into this mess is overwhelming.
I was nervous when we arrived, but had high hopes. Everything was lovely and Camille [Grammer] did a very nice job putting the dinner together. Almost as soon as we sat down, things started to go south. Allison Dubois had this look on her face like she was ready to go in for the kill. I instantly felt this overwhelming negative energy in the room. You could cut the tension with a knife!
When Alison made the comment at the table about Mauricio and I not having anything in common, I thought, “OK, well this lady clearly isn’t a good psychic. Not a big shock.” I’ve met plenty of quacks that claim to be able to see the future. I didn’t want to embarrass her by voicing doubt in her psychic abilities in front of everyone, especially since I had asked for the “reading.” My friends at the table were far more offended than I was.
Then when she said that I’m more of a guy’s girl and not a girl’s girl, I thought, “OK, I’m done. This woman has no clue what she is talking about.” I come from a family of ALL women and I have four daughters. I am a girl’s girl all the way, always have been.
That part of the evening didn’t bother me in the least. It’s what came after that I found so upsetting. It seemed so obvious that Camille had planned what she was going to say to Faye [Resnick]. Camille had never even met Faye before, and had decided to make her the first victim. I felt so bad for my friend who was sitting there in shock, but still trying to remain a lady. In watching the episode I was shocked to see Camille calling Faye “morally corrupt.â€ Faye did pose for Playboy, but it was THREE YEARS AFTER her friend passed away, which is a very painful memory I found appalling that Camille would bring up. Clearly, Camille was directing all the anger she has for me toward Faye.
I want to clarify why Kim and I took separate cars home. When we all finally got up to leave, I wanted to RUN out of there as fast as possible. The reason we were late to Camille’s was due to a road closure. I asked Kim to take the car back alone so Faye and I wouldn’t have to go two hours out of the way and in the opposite direction again. It made more sense for all of us to ride together since we all live within a few miles of each other and were going in the same direction.
Kim and I got into it that night because I felt she was adding fuel to the fire by fighting with Taylor. There was already so much going on, that’s the last thing we needed. It was starting to feel like an out-of-control barroom brawl.
When my husband and family watched this episode it was very upsetting. It seems obvious to me that the comments Camille made about my husband after we left, were premeditated. She was trying to go after what we cherish most. I’m not sure what they were referring to when they mentioned the “nannies.” I have never had a nanny with any of my children. My kids were especially saddened that someone would insinuate such negative things about their father. My husband
has been nothing but kind and gracious to both Camille and Kelsey.
Trying to insinuate that my husband “loves all women” in an inappropriate way was a low blow to say the least. My husband does love women. He has four daughters, a sister, a mother he is very close to, and loves to hang out with my friends and me. Never is he inappropriate in any way shape or form. I was blown away by the conversation between Camille, D.D, and Allison. The mean things they were saying were carefully orchestrated, cruel, and hurtful.
I do feel for Camille and the cards she’s been dealt this year; however, it does not excuse her behavior. We have all gone through tough times, and I usually find those times humble us and bring us closer to our friends. Maybe, if she had been more open she would have seen that she could have had a great support system in this group of women who I am proud to call my friends.
