Camille Grammer isn’t returning to RHOBH next season (Update: she quit)

Camille Grammer
Resident meanie Camille Grammer has allegedly vowed not to return to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season. We sort-of saw this coming, what with the news that the rest of the cast wants her off the show, which is to be expected since Camille picks fights with everyone and flirts outrageously with their husbands. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Camille has no interest in coming back to the show for another season.

Camille Grammer will not be returning for a second season of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, THR has learned exclusively.
The soon-to-be ex-wife of actor Kelsey Grammer has been the subject of much scrutiny during the series’ freshman season ­– which averages more than 2 million viewers a week – for her parenting habits (she has four nannies for two children), her friendships with married tennis partner Nick Stabile and real-life medium Allison Dubois, and her now infamous feud with co-star Kyle Richards (aunt of socialite and reality star Paris Hilton).

While a second season has yet to be officially announced by the network, a source close to production confirmed that Grammer has decided that she has no interest in participating either way.

[From The Hollywood Reporter]

Camille is entertaining in a trainwreck kind of way, but her extreme narcissism gets old fast. She doesn’t have much to offer besides nastiness, and while that’s fun to gossip about it’s not easy to watch. She predictable, and every week she does mean, self-centered things and then accuses Kyle of the very behavior we’ve seen Camille engage in. No one wants to see the villain triumph or even continue to cling to her weak-minded view of a world that will always center around her. We know all about Camille and her sad privileged world and we know that she’ll never change. She’ll lose her husband soon, though, and there are plenty of people who are hoping we’ll get to see her lizard face fall when she realizes that Kelsey isn’t coming back. There’s a new episode of Real Housewives coming this Thursday.

Update: Radar Online reports that Camille quit the RHOBH a day after taping the reunion show on Tuesday.

    Thank heaven for small favors. She is insufferable. And BTW, she looks like a tranny.

  2. Riley says:

    I can understand why the cast would want her off the show, but without her, it really would be dull. She drives the plot and it really has been quite entertaining to watch. Unless they can get Demi Moore to replace her, the next season will probably be a real snooze.

  3. Roma says:

    Oh. Those boobs. Eck.

  4. Tess says:

    With her gone, my prediction, a la Alison Dubois, is that we will begin to see that Kyle’s not just the fun-lovin’ gal she seems like compared to the loathsome Camille—-but that Kyle’s got a touch of Bitch Syndrome, herself.

  5. poopie says:

    i can’t STAND Camille, but don’t we get to see her suffer when she finds Kelsey semi-engaged with katye after having tried to create more spawn? now THAT would be ENTERTAINMENT my friends. the show would be boring without her drama but i’m sure the producers can dig up another narciccist overspender in B.H.to stir things up. and yea, Demi would be great on this show. but NO asston please.

  6. Henriette says:

    Hideous breasts, hideous face, hideous personality. But, the show won’t be interesting without her; she was the woman it was fun to hate!

  7. Judy says:

    Good riddance, you vapid, shallow, pretentious SLUT.

  8. poopie says:

    i can’t believe i’m saying this but i can watch Camille a THOUSAND times more than i can watch Kelly Bensim…. on the RHONY….and i can’t figure out why…..help me…..

  9. Zombie Nurse says:

    In the words if Col. Hunter Gathers, “She has got the saddest tits. Mournful tits.”

  10. daisydoodle says:

    I don’t like her, but she will be sorely missed. I love when she’s trying to be intelligent and then vomits up a big word used incorrectly…

  11. Louisa says:

    To me she looks like Donatella Versace, an italian woman with dark features and hair that just feels the NEED to be a california blond. horrible

  12. Tania says:

    What’s with those boobs!? Yuck! Anyway, I love hating her and her delusional views but I agree, the show will be boring without her. Who will we hate then???

  13. Marjalane says:

    I have several theories on this one- first, I read somewhere that one of the housewives was going to be outed in the tabs as a past life hooker- duh: Camille. How’s she supposed to play THAT one? also, given Camille’s lust for attention, I wouldn’t put it past her and her “people” to throw this out there just to get all of us saying, “Oh no, Camille is the whole show!” Which she is a big part of, but she’s painfully one dimensional. I actually hope she comes back, some of the more boring housewives need her to play off of. (yeah, I’m talking about you, Maloof)

    Also- last week someone posted a link of Gawker’s recaps- Awesome, awesome stuff! I went back and read all the housewife recaps and I laughed until my sides hurt- They were better than the show!

  14. C-Love says:

    She has sausage boobs. Ick.

  15. Riley says:

    @Poopie: I kind of know what you mean. I think for me, Camille is crazy and mean and deluded but she does know how to fight back. And she is a real manipulator. Kelly, however, is powerless against those RHNYC women and is absolutely no match for them. She cannot form a thoughtful sentence when she is trying to defend herself and she comes across as very shakey and scared. Her meltdown at the end of last season was similiar to something I imagined Brittney Spears must have gone through when she was tied in a straight jacket and taken away via ambulance to the psych ward. KB really doesn’t seem stable enough for tv in my opinion and I think it is sad that she keeps putting herself out there.

  16. bros says:

    that was me marjalane-they are ridiculously funny. she is probably angling for a post divorce reality show a la longwhoria now that she has had a taste of being on a show. I cant wait until they do enough digging to do a real expose on her in her pre millionaire days. that blind item was on Dlisted yesterday. oh, and thank god she had her fun bags reduced; those things were gross.

  17. Lila says:

    Ladies, calm down. There couldn’t possibly be a shortage of badly aging, deluded, narcissistic and overstretched women of priviledge in Beverly Hills. It’s simply not possible. I have faith that the next bedazzled sociopath isn’t far off the horizon.

  18. Sofia says:

    Darn…I find Camille insufferable, but I love watching the trainwrecks! It is unfathomable to me how Camille and Allison could be such vile creatures, it is almost like watching an anthrolological experiment. I will be sad if she doesn’t come back.

    And I’m with y’all, Kelly Bensimone is also the reason I watch RHONY. She is amaaaaazing…..

  19. SoulLovah says:

    She looks like a lost extra in an old Britney Spears video in that 2005 pic

  20. Bella Bella says:

    I want Denise Richards on the show to replace Camille!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Marjalane says:

    Can’t wait to see what the reunion show exposes! Maybe Bravo DID have tape of the Hawaii conversation?

  22. Tess says:

    I heard Andy Cohen say that Camille reveals a new side of herself, so maybe on The Reunion she assumes The Victim posture, thus becoming marginally more palatable.

    I also have a hunch that a major sideshow on The Reunion will be the further unwinding of the relationship between sisters Kyle and Kim.

  23. the original bellaluna says:

    Of course she did. All the better to cry to the divorce judge that she has no income, and therefore needs a bigger settlement!

  24. Lindsay says:

    That’s too bad. Hopefully someone interesting and watchable replaces her, otherwise it could get boring. It will be interesting to see the reunion show and see what pushed her over the edge.

    There was a blind item (probably) about her the other day http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2011/01/todays-blind-items.html

  25. Rita says:

    Kelsey’s look says it all,

    “Yes, the boobs are for sale…all three of them.”

  26. Heather says:

    Just now noticed she seems to have a wonk eye.

  27. Stacy W. says:

    My guess is the next housewife will be Faye Resnick.

  28. neelyo says:

    @Stacy W – you mean the ‘morally corrupt’ Faye Resnick.

    I bet Camille’s best friends (i.e. four nannies, house manager, etc.) are so excited to hear that she’ll be around more to help out.

  29. Pix says:

    She’ll be back. This woman is far too narcissistic to walk away looking like the bad guy. She will try to redeem herself and the only way to do that is to come back next season and play the victim. Trust…she will be back.

  30. LittleDeadGirl says:

    I hope she does go away but honestly they will need to replace her with another villian. The only one I like without drama is Lisa, she makes me laugh and I love her there is little bullshit with her, it’s nice. I like Kyle too most of the times. I think Adrienne is cool but kind of boring. Kim and Taylor are probably gonna go at it without Camille there to be the center of the fight.

  31. Mshuffleupagus says:

    Please please sweet baby Jesus please make Allison DuBois the next housewife.

  32. Spike says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a ploy for more money for next season. She knows she is the “star”.

    God, her paid friend/stylist must hate her – those are really horrific duds..

  33. Iggles says:

    I disagree that the Danielle, Camillie, and Kelly types make the show interesting to watch. I’m glad the first two are gone and I wish Kelly would follow.

    It doesn’t matter anyway. I’m done with RHONY now that Bethany quit. She was my favorite and I don’t want to watch the Jill Zarin show!

  34. Bella Mosley says:

    Have never watched that or any Housewife show, but still am ODing on her. So for Camille — Buh bye!

  35. bagladey says:

    “She doesn’t have much to offer besides nastiness, and while that’s fun to gossip about it’s not easy to watch.”

    Those are exactly my feelings about Camille. Camille’s behaviour was so vile, especially during that dinner party that she threw as a trap for Kyle, that I had to turn away and/or turn the volume off during some of her segments.

  36. wunderkindt says:

    So the bitch punked out!

  37. TeeTee says:

    too much exposure huh Millee??

    heeheehee

  38. Chrissy says:

    Oh no!! I loved watching her!! I mean, I can’t stand HER as a person and would never, ever want to be associated with her but she is amazing to watch. Her awfulness is shocking.

    Giggy needs to take her place. :o )

  39. Jayna says:

    This is so sad she’s leaving. You need dysfunctional people on these shows. I think she’s leaving because her last blog she was bombarded with posts about her and Allison and telling her the truth about herself. Few positive posts. She took her last blog off the bravo website. I think she thinks I’m high society, why put myself through this to be ridiculed. This was the best gift Kelsey ever could have had regarding his affair, Camille on Bravo.

  40. YES!!!!! I can enjoy my show now!

  41. FatJennyFromBurgerBlock says:

    Sorry to say but she brings spice to the show. I don’t love her but I don’t hate her. She is fabulous in her own Camille way…most definitely!!

  42. Kiska says:

    I hope she comes back. She is such an excellent villian.

  43. Riley says:

    I cannot wait until the Broke Bitches of Orange County make their return. They are my faves. Trailer trash and deluded, just like Pam Anderson.

  44. Jeannified says:

    She won’t leave…you watch…they’ll offer her an unGodly amount of money and then throw in some other deals, like a spin-off show (which I’ve heard is exactly what she wants) and she’ll be back! Mark my words! This bitch is as narcisstic as they come…she wants the spotlight. Likes the private life, my ass! …and what’s up with those boobs?!

  45. Kim says:

    Of course she wont return because we all saw the REAL Camille – who is a nut job!! Good riddance!

    There are so many deluded, materialistic, plastic ladies in Bev Hiils they can find 1000 women to replace her. Maybe one of the previous rejects will get a spot now.

  46. Kim says:

    Riley – Hilarious and so true!

  47. Kim says:

    EWWWWWWWWWW! Her bolt ons are the worst! Why are they so saggy?? She better take that divorce money and get a good surgeon!

  48. guesty says:

    *looks nervously around for bros…posts anyway* :p

    rhobh will definitely be a complete borefest without her. can’t wait to see the reunion.

  49. Blaze says:

    I don’t think this show would have nearly the ratings it did if it weren’t for Camille; I don’t watch these shows because I want to see reasonable, level-headed people that I would love to hang out with irl, I watch it for the bitchy catfights and drama. Ya know, guilty pleasures and what not :)

    And while there surely is no shortage of vapid, materialistic women in BH, it may be hard to find another one who is married to an actor we’ve actually heard of and whose long-term marriage is falling apart during the taping of the first season. So surreal and so juicy…

  50. jasmine says:

    good!good!good!…maybe now i can watch the show!!!!!!!

  51. Wresa says:

    Nooooo don’t leave Camille, don’t leave!!

  52. sassy says:

    Hehheheheheh…..I’m evilly smoking my electronic cigarette as I read this. Everything is going according to plan…..(deeply inhale)

  53. mimi says:

    She needs immediate intervention for her narcissism. Team Kelsy all the way. Getting dumped for a younger sweeter girl couldn’t have happened to a more deserving b*tch!!!!

  54. Crash2GO2 says:

    ACK! WTH with the boobs!!! My eyes, my eyes!!
