  • Was Fox News really straw that broke Camille marriage's back?

    Was Fox News really the straw that broke Camille and Kelsey Grammer’s 14-year marriage’s back?

    That’s what Camille implied while chatting with Joy Behar earlier this week.

    “We didn’t agree politically on everything,” she said. “We didn’t even (cuddle). He was too busy watching Fox News.”


    But on Tuesday night’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” reunion special, some other possible reasons behind Kelsey Grammer leaving Camille for a flight attendant he had only recently met were raised.

    Throughout the season, Camille shamelessly flirted with other people’s husbands. She delighted in sporting teeny-tiny bikinis, enjoying the attention she received from the housewives’ husbands.

    Camille even suggested that fellow housewife Kyle Richards’ husband made a play for her.

    After Richards stormed out of Grammer’s “dinner party from hell” on one of the show’s most-talked about episodes, Grammer announced with a knowing smile that “[Richards' husband] Mauricio loves more than his nannies.”

    The pretty blonde also managed to irk the other housewives by kissing her friend Trisha’s handsome husband Nick on the lips. Camille defended her lip kissing during the reunion.

    “I’ve known Nick for so long—Trisha kisses Kelsey on the lips, I kiss on Nick on the lips and I kiss Trisha on the lips. I’m Italian! We grab people’s faces and kiss them on the lips,” she explained.

    During the season, many called Camille a hypocrite when she called out Richards’ BFF Faye Resnick for being “morally corrupt” for posing for Playboy when Camille herself had starred in soft-core porn.

    On Tuesday night’s reunion special, Camille attempted to explain her comment about Resnick, author of “Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted,” saying, “You write a book about your friend’s murder, and then you do Playboy after that?”

    “Three years after that,” Kyle snapped back. “Unless you’re a nun, you shouldn’t be talking like that. You call that morally corrupt? I think that doing porn is a lot more corrupt than doing a tasteful spread in Playboy.

    Grammer’s ostentatious display of wealth turned off many. She and Kelsey Grammer’s net worth is estimated to be at $100 million. As Kelsey did not ask her to sign a prenuptial agreement, she could receive a lump sum payment of $50 million in the divorce settlement.

    “It’s extremely rare for someone of his net worth not to have a prenuptial agreement,” Beverly Hills-based divorce attorney Evan T. Sussman tells FOX411. “It sounds like Kelsey is emotionally done with the relationship. I’ve had cases where the other side will be more generous (with their settlement) just to get out of it. That’s what he wants—he wants out of the relationship so that he can remarry [flight attendant Kayte Walsh].”

    Despite the knocks, Camille has at least one defender, her psychic best friend Allison DuBois.

    “Camille is a person, and they’re depicting her very out of character for who she is,” DuBois told FOX411 in January. “She’s not like that—she not just a body and money. She’s actually very sweet, and I’ve never heard her raise her voice in the 10 years that I’ve known her—until that show.”

    DuBois may be psychic, but during her attendance at the “dinner party from hell,” she failed to predict that Kelsey Grammer was about to leave Camille. Instead, she claimed that Richards’ marriage to Umansky was doomed.

    Camille said that DuBois’ wires may have been crossed. “I think the read she was getting on (Kyle) was me,” she said wistfully. “I definitely do.”

    Relationships can be so confusing.
