Shakeup in Beverly Hills! Camille Grammer is done with The Real Housewives — but she says she is leaving on her own terms.
Camille Grammer will not be returning for season three of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Is money to blame? Who said goodbye to whom? Why does she have to go instead of, say, Taylor Armstrong or Brandi Glanville?
“I can’t say too much at this moment, but we couldn’t get it worked out,” Grammer confirmed to Us Weekly. “I’ve had so much fun with the franchise, but I guess the producers and I couldn’t come to an agreement.”
“I love these girls. I really do,” she said of her Beverly Hills costars Kim and Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong, Lisa Vanderpump and Adrienne Maloof.
“Couldn’t come to an agreement” sounds an awful lot like “they refused my gigantic salary demands.” Was she let go over failed contract negotiations?
“I was not fired,” Camille told E! News. “I didn’t want to expose my personal life so much anymore. I had done that and was over that. I care very much for my family and children and that show tends to take me away from them. I really want to focus on them right now.”
“The past is the past and I’m in a really good place right now. I have a wonderful boyfriend who is kind and even-tempered and there are certain things I just want to keep private. But it’s not all about him.”
“I will miss the good times we shared,” Grammer said of the girl time spent with her cast mates. “I was just with them in Vegas and we were talking about how sad it is.”
“I’m in a really good place and I’m all about my family. It is a personal decision. I was not fired,” she reiterated.
