The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer had an emotional sit-down with Anderson Cooper where she dished about her on-going divorce drama, and RadarOnline.com has a sneak preview of the reality star’s heart-felt confession that includes her claim that her children are banned from saying her name in their father’s house!
When asked how “co-parenting” with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer was going, she replied honestly, “Thank you for asking that but it’s very difficult to co-parent with someone who won’t speak to you, text you or email you.
“He doesn’t speak to me at all. So it’s very, very difficult because I’ve reached out to him. I think it’s very important to be amicable to raise children and he refuses too. There’s just so much I can do at this point,” said the reality star sadly.
The former Playboy model and the Frasier star had two children together, Mason Olivia, 11, and Jude Gordon, 8, both were born to a surrogate mother.
Rather than talk voice-to-voice, the feuding couple communicate through lawyers. “So we are spending a fortune just to try to co-parent, which is ridiculous,” Camille, 44, told the Anderson Live host in an episode that airs on Tuesday.
“The kids at this point, which is kind of sad I found this out, that they are not allowed to same my name in the house,” Grammer said. “So these poor kids, my daughter and my son can’t say my name in their father’s house.
“I think they can say mom or the other household but they can’t say my name. They can’t say Camille.”
Naturally, Grammer said the cruel restriction by her children’s father makes her feel “horrible… I call my lawyers and say, ‘What’s my recourse in this? What do I do as a parent?’ because I feel bad for them. It must be stressful for them to not be able to say their mother’s name, but there is no recourse because we already settled our custody,” she explained.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kelsey appeared on Anderson Live in September to tell his side of the high profile break-up story.
“I was trying to pretend things were normal for the sake of letting her have that moment. It was just ill advised,” the former Fraiser star told Cooper when asked if he had any regrets about the scenes he was in on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before the couple suddenly split in July 2010.
“It was the wrong decision and I should have come home from England when I first met Kayte and just said, ‘Listen I’ve met somebody and this hasn’t been working for a long time.’ I regret not doing that.”
Anderson Live is a nationally syndicated talk show, visit AndersonCooper.com for local listings. The full interview with Camille airs on Tuesday.
