Camille Grammer is going through a lot right now. Not only is she dealing with the backlash of being on the reality show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she’s also going through a divorce from Kelsey Grammer. Camille opened up to Ellen DeGeneres about her divorce and her husband’s infidelity.
“A mutual friend called me and said, ‘I don’t like what he’s doing to you and I don’t like the timing because you’re still in the middle of shooting a reality show.’ And then I called him that night and texted him. No answer from him,” Camille said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I waited for three hours and then he called me and said, ‘I don’t want to be married anymore.’”
Kelsey is currently engaged to Kayte Walsh, an Australian flight attendant, and Camille says they don’t really keep in touch.
“We don’t speak at all,” she said. “Everything I find out is through the press with him. Or he writes me an email or text.”
But she’d like that to change.
“I think it’s really important for us to speak if we’re going to raise children together,” she explained of their children Mason, 9, and Jude, 6. “So right now, my focus now is that we hopefully become friends and we move on from this and we can become good parents to our two young children.”
Camille’s “distant” relationship with Kelsey has been on display on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and now she says she’s not sure she’d want to return for a second season.
“I didn’t want to do the show. I wasn’t ready to expose my life that way,” Camille explained. “I was surprised that he wanted me to do to it too. I was like, ‘Are you crazy? Why are you making me do this?’ But he thought it would be good for me to do something that was separate from us being a couple.”
