Camille Grammer out of Real Housewives

Camille Grammer has confirmed that she won’t be on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for its third season.

While reports said she didn’t want to “expose her personal life any more,” Camille herself said it was actually because she couldn’t come to an agreement with the show’s producers, which presumably means over money and/or contract stipulations.

“I can’t say too much at this moment, but we couldn’t get it worked out. I love these girls. I really do. I’ve had so much fun with the franchise, but I guess the producers and I couldn’t come to an agreement,” Camille told Us Weekly.

Update: In a more detailed interview with E! News published late Sunday, she steers her comments away from a contract dispute. “I was not fired. 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,” Camille said. “I just chose to keep most things private in general. I’m in a good place and I’ve had such an interesting experience and such a learning experience being on this show. I’ve really enjoyed my time working with the girls and I will miss the camaraderie. I enjoyed the producers and Bravo. I’m upset about that part.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
