Remind us to get Kelsey Grammer a little something for his birthday because his “parting gift” for Camille Grammer was a spot on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. At first, she was just the shoulder-shrugging star’s wife who would brag about her four nannies and the combination waterfall-and-moat she used to have in her house. We loved to hate on her, but then something happened. She stopped name-dropping her ex (unless she was saying genuinely funny things) and found her sense of humor and become eminently likable. We’re truly sad to see her leave RHoBH, so we’re returning to some of her best moments on the show. Maybe some of them aren’t the most flattering, but they make the ones that are all the more impressive.
We’ll miss you, Camille!
The morally corrupt Camille Grammer
If it hadn’t been for Cam Gram, we wouldn’t have known who Faye Resnick is. As the host of a dinner party, it was obviously Camille’s duty to compliment Faye on her beautiful spread — from 1995. In this case, though, it was the Playboy pot calling the kettle morally corrupt, because Camille has her own posing past.
Camille versus Kyle
The two ladies mended fences for Season 2, but Camille and Kyle Richards were bitter nemeses at first. Their fights provided some of the show’s greatest quotes of all time, including Kyle’s iconic,“You’re such a f***ing liar, Camille!”
Cam Gram shakes her money maker
Ah, we hardly knew her and her Club MTV moves at the time, but in Season 1, Episode 3, we got a look at Camille’s best groove shaking when the ladies headed to Vegas. “I think all that was missing was a pole, really,” Lisa Vanderpump noted. Camille’s signature moves returned in Season 2, Episode 15 when Brandi Glanville pretty much used Camille as her personal pole. Vegas really brings out theShowgirl in the Housewives!
Camille simply stuns at the Tony Awards
When Camille and Kelsey attended the Tony Awards at the end of her marriage, we were stunned looking back at the photos of the two of them together. She managed to hold it together despite the fact that her marriage was going up in flames. Kelsey suggested she not wear a sweeping red gown, but Camille ignored his advice and wowed in the brilliant dress. Good for you, girl!
Cam Gram’s new man
After learning about all the things Kelsey put Camille through, it was easy to say she was way better off without him. (Especially since she was supposedly $50 million richer.) So when Camille revealed a photo of her new boyfriend’s abs during the Season 2 finale — and we learned how gentlemanly he is — it was just one of the many ways she proved just how far she’d come.
