Camille Grammer: I was not fired from 'The Real Housewives'
By Reality TV World staff, 03/26/2012
Camille Grammer is denying that she will not be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills because she was fired from the Bravo reality series.
According to Grammer, it was her decision not to return for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' upcoming third season.
"I was not fired," she told E! News on Sunday. "I didn't want to expose my personal life so much anymore. I had done that and was over that. I care very much for my family and children and that show tends to take me away from them. I really want to focus on them right now."
"I just chose to keep most things private in general. I'm in a good place and I've had such an interesting experience and such a learning experience being on this show. I've really enjoyed my time working with the girls and I will miss the camaraderie. I enjoyed the producers and Bravo. I'm upset about that part."
Ironically, reports that Grammer wasn't leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills by choice had been sparked by her own prior comments about the matter.
"I can't say too much at this moment, but we couldn't get it worked out," she toldUs Weekly while attending an event in Las Vegas on Saturday night. "I've had so much fun with the franchise, but I guess the producers and I couldn't come to an agreement."
"I think I would have done it, definitely," she told Us as she reportedly explained she would have returned for another season if she had her way.
However, Grammer told E! News that is not actually the case.
"[Not returning] was something I needed to do. At this time in my life I need to focus on my family," she said.
"The past is the past and I'm in a really good place right now. I have a wonderful boyfriend [Dimitri Charalambopoulos] who is kind and even tempered and there are certain things I just want to keep private. But it's not all about him."
But Grammer also didn't rule out starring in another reality show when asked about her future plans.
"We'll see. I don't know. All things are possible. There's stuff I can't talk about this minute," she told E! News. "Reality is a possibility but all things are possible. I'm in a really good place and I'm all about my family. It is a personal decision. I was not fired."
