‘RHOBH’: Is Kyle Richards The Reason Camille Grammer Is Not Returning for Season 10?
Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has confirmed two new additions to the cast and notably missing is Camille Grammer. The former RHOBH star took a friend role during Season 9 and created a lot of drama amongst the group. Now, the newlywed has taken to Twitter to explain why she won’t be returning and Kyle Richards might be the one to blame.
Who are the housewives joining ‘RHOBH’ cast?
Bravo confirmed that for Season 10, RHOBH would add two additional cast members. Garcelle Beauvais, a model and actress, is one of the new faces that will be holding a diamond when the show returns in early 2020.
“I am excited and proud to be joining the cast of such a wildly popular and beloved show like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” she told The Daily Dish in a statement. “As a working actor who has been in the industry for some time, it’s exhilarating to have the opportunity to delve into a new chapter in the entertainment spectrum.”
Beauvais casting is historic as she will be the first African-American housewife included in the RHOBH cast.
“As the first African American Housewife in the Beverly Hills franchise, I am honored and humbled by this awesome opportunity to exemplify the fact that Black Girl Magic lives and thrives in every zip code!” she added. “Already being intimately familiar with the spotlight of Hollywood, my journey of successes and trials has already been chronicled and shared with my many loyal supporters around the world. The continual encouragement, support and yes, even at times, criticism, have helped make me the dynamic woman I am today.”
She also said: “I’m excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today’s crazy world. The hustle is R-E-A-L! No games, all heart and a little dash of fashion-filled sass is what you’ll get when you step into my sphere…and I wouldn’t have it any other way!”
Sutton Strucke is the other lady joining the cast for Season 10 coming in with ties to Lisa Rinna.
“I am thrilled and honored to be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As a mother to three children who is also deeply committed to my efforts in philanthropy, my life is a balancing act,” Stracke also said in a statement to The Daily Dish.
“There is a lot going on in the best way possible and I strive to pursue all of my passions to the fullest,” she continued. “I am excited to share my true loves of art and fashion design, and open the doors to my world. I am looking forward to this ride and where this journey takes me. Fun times ahead for this Southern Belle in Southern California!”
Why is Camille Grammer not returning to ‘RHOBH’?
Many fans believed Grammer was going to be offered a housewife role for Season 10 as she was at odds with the rest of the cast. It turns out that she wasn’t not given the opportunity to rejoin the show and it was ultimately Richards’ decision.
“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 asking where she was.
This is when Grammer dropped a bombshell saying that Richards was the one that didn’t want her to come back.
“It was up to Kyle”, she replied to a viewer commenting they couldn’t believe she wasn’t asked back. “I’m really fine. After the reunion, I didn’t want to come back. It was an awful experience.”
The fan then replied to the revelation saying: “Well, you’ll be missed. Seems like a bit of a slap in the face to you [to be honest], after being an amazing ‘friend-of’ for two seasons. Think they should remember who the OGs are.”
Grammer then wrote: “I agree, but they don’t. It’s a tough business. They eat you up and spit you out.”
Fans continued to send their support for Grammer after finding it unfair she wouldn’t be returning. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is set to return to Bravo during the first quarter of 2020.
