Camille Grammer was on the hot seat during the first part of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, and the ladies didn’t hold back when asking her burning questions regarding her scandalous divorce and new marriage.
As soon as she sat down with the ladies and Bravo host Andy Cohen, Grammer, 50, was questioned about her recent nuptials, her decision to keep her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer’s last name, and her $30 million divorce settlement from the Frasier star.
“What is the real reason you won’t give up Grammer?” Cohen asked.
“The primary reason is for my kids. That’s it,” Grammer answered, adding that she deleted the last-name from her social media channels but kept it on her passport.
Grammer ignored Richards’ comment and explained that her new husband, David C. Meyer, doesn’t seem to mind that she’s kept her former husband’s last name.
“David is all for it. He said, ‘Both of your kids’ last name is Grammer. I understand that.’ He has no problem,” said the star, who has two kids with her ex.
The conversation then began to turn nasty, when Cohen and the ladies brought up Grammer’s hefty divorce settlement.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Grammer got half of her famous ex’s 401K account from the time of their marriage in 1997 to their separation in 2010.
“Thank God I didn’t have a prenup. Thank you, Kelsey. I guess you loved me at one point,” she said on the season 2 finale of Andy Cohen’s Then & Now in 2017.
Richards, 48, who also has two kids from her marriage to Sheen, explained that when she split from Sheen, she could have also gotten 50 percent of his money, but she decided not to.
Hearing her remark, Grammer became defensive.
“I just felt that, you know, working — and I worked hard,” Camille said. “I just didn’t sit back, buying fancy clothes and shoving bonbons in my face. I mean, I worked hard.”
Her bizarre statement made the ladies open their eyes in confusion. At one point, Dorit Kemsley turned to Richards and asked, “Do you like bonbons?”
“I’ve never had one,” the actress said with a laugh.
The ladies then took a lunch break, but the drama between Richards and Grammer continued behind the scenes, with both ladies slamming one another’s on-screen attitudes.
“I don’t understand what’s going on with Denise about the money stuff,” Grammer said to her hairstylist. “Like, everybody’s divorce is different, their settlement’s different. I can’t figure out what it is that gets her about that.”
Richards also slammed Grammer. Speaking with Teddi Mellencamp, she said, “Oh my God, wait until we get into all this Camille s**t. I think she’s just being really mean… Maybe she’s not a happy person.
