Why ‘RHOBH’ Fans Are Hopeful Camille Grammer Returns for Season 10
Camille Grammer has been a fan favorite of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since the beginning of the franchise. The former Bravo star had been making regular appearances as a friend but was not asked back for season 10. Loyal viewers were upset when the star confirmed she was not returning to the reality series but a new tweet has made fans hopeful again.
Camille Grammer announces she’s not returning
After Lisa Vanderpump left RHOBH and stopped filming with the rest of the cast, Grammer was the apparent heir. She was antagonistic to the rest of the ladies and carried the latter part of season 9. It was wildly expected that Grammer would be made a housewife again after causing drama and making situations uncomfortable.
Following Bravo’s announcement of two new housewives, Grammer’s name was notably absent from the cast. Fans quickly took to Twitter to ask their idol what had happened and she was completely honest with her reason blaming Kyle Richards.
“I wasn’t asked back. It’s fine. I did my time on the show. And it’s Kyle’s show,” she replied to a fan in a now-deleted tweet.
In a follow-up tweet, she said that the decision “was up to Kyle” and she was the reason producers didn’t extend an invite. “I’m really fine,” Grammer added in another now-deleted tweet. “After the reunion, I didn’t want to come back. It was an awful experience.”
Kyle Richards denies claims and Camille Grammer fires back
When Richards was asked to comment on Grammer’s tweets she vehemently denied it.
“That’s not true,” Richards told the TMZ reporter. “I never even had an issue with Camille, I don’t know where that came from.”
After Grammer saw the story online she tweeted: “Don’t believe her spin. Producers told me otherwise.”
When The Real Housewives of Orange County star, Tamra Judge interjected, and called “BS” on Grammer’s allegations, the latter fired back.
“You know better. It was Kyle’s show from the very beginning,” Grammer replied on Instagram. “She had a development deal with Evolution for a show with Kim [Richards] and Kathy [Hilton]. Kathy backed out and there was some controversy over development. So they decided to make it The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She brought [Lisa Vanderpump] and she asked me to take a meeting with Evolution. Andy [Cohen] was not interested at first. Kyle got paid $134,000 when the rest of the cast got paid around $36,000.”
A sign of hope?
Season 10 of RHOBH is already in production but there are rumors that it’s light on the drama and producers are scrambling. Let’s remember that this would be the first season without Vanderpump.
“There’s been essentially no drama at all with Lisa Vanderpump’s departure,” a source told Hollywood Life. “The ladies are all truly friends and [are] getting along, seemingly.”
When a fan shaded Bravo for not inviting back Grammer, the former RHOBH star replied.
“I just might have to make an appearance,” she wrote on Twitter.
Following Grammer’s tweet, fans poured in with the support of her returning to the reality show.
“Please do,” a fan wrote. “By appearance, [do] you mean save an entire season again?” another viewer asked. “If [you] do appear, make sure you secure that paycheck. I would say [you’re] worth all those dimwits’ salaries combined. Call all [of] them out,” a fan also suggested.
As of right now, there doesn’t seem to be a formal invite from Bravo to have Grammer appear on RHOBH. The ladies are ready to wrap up production of season 10 in the coming weeks and viewers will be able to watch at the beginning of 2020.
