Camille Grammer won't return to 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'
Just as everyone had come to know her name, Camille Grammer has decided not to return for another season of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
"It was 100 percent her decision," said her publicist Howard Bragman. "Bravo seems to be going out there saying it was mutual. It's just not true."
Grammer cut ties, according to Bragman, due to conflicting views on the direction of her storyline. "There were things that she didn't want to talk about: kids, family, her personal life. Bravo wanted that. She said no."
Bravo declined to comment on the matter. And the network hasn't yet officially announced whether the show will return for a third season -- though it's highly likely that it will.
Viewers were introduced to Grammer when the series premiered in 2010, alongside Lisa Vandepump, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle and Kim Richards, and Taylor Armstrong. Grammer hardly ingratiated herself -- often bragging about her wealth and hanging on to the star power of her then-husband, "Frasier" actor Kelsey Grammer, and clashing with a fellow Housewife. But she underwent a transformation when the show returned for its sophomore outing, emerging as a scorned wife humbled by her circumstances and often serving as the voice of reason -- such as when she was outspoken on the Season 2 reunion about her disapproval of Bravo airing the second season given the recent suicide of Armstrong's husband.
"She ended on a high note," Bragman said. "We got a chance for some redemption."
