EXCLUSIVE: Camille Grammer 'Itching' to Come Back to 'RHOBH' Full-Time and 'Really Happy' With New Boyfriend
Camille Grammer really wants to hold a Real Housewives diamond again.
“Yes, I do!” Camille gushes to ET. “Of course I have the itch to come back. Now I do. The more and more I'm on, I feel like I'm ready. I feel like I can handle it. I feel like I can handle the drama again.”
The 48-year-old was, of course, a main cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ first two seasons. She has made regular guest appearances since, popping up quite often in the current seventh season.
“I needed a break for a little while,” she admits. “You know, divorce, cancer. Those things were difficult, and I had to get through that. I didn't want to play the cancer stuff on camera, but I want to support the foundation I work with, so I think it's really a great platform, doing Housewives, to get the word out there to support below-the-belt cancers, and the Foundation for Women's Cancer.”
Lucky for Camille, Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen tells ET the network “always wants Camille.”
“I think Camille got burned season one, because she really just let it all rip,” he says. “And then after that, I think she’s been a little gun shy. You know, there’s always a place for her … Camille was always someone I wanted to see back.”
“We’re actually in a really good place where you kind of have people come back,” Andy adds. “Hopefully you’re going to see more familiar faces in every city.”
Unfortunately, fans won’t see Camille at the season seven reunion, which co-star Kyle Richards describes as “bizarre.”
“I would've liked to have gone,” Camille confesses. “I'm a little disappointed I didn't get a chance to, because I was involved with a lot of filming, and I saw some of the rights and some of the wrongs that were going on. I want to right some of those wrongs. I'm all about justice.”
Camille says she really didn’t like to see cast members questioning Kim Richards’ sobriety.
“Kim's doing great,” Camille shares. “She's happy, she's a grandmother. You know, I've known her for several years now, I've seen her ups and downs, and she's glowing, she's happy. She's a glam-mother. She couldn't be happier.”
It turns out Camille also couldn’t be happier. It was date night for the star when ET caught up with her at the Family Equality Council’s Impact Awards on Saturday night. She stepped out with attorney Dave Dubin, her boyfriend of about five months.
“There is a man on my arm,” she coos. “It’s a great thing … It’s going really well. I’m really happy.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo. Check out the video below to see ET’s exclusive home tour with Camille.
