Looks like Bravo is going on a firing spree! After cutting half the ‘Real Housewives of New York’ cast, the network might be looking to do the same with their Beverly Hills franchise.
While Camille hasn’t gotten word she’s been cut, she certainly hasn’t been asked to come back, either.
“I had a good year so I would want to go back for a third season, but they haven’t asked me yet, so I wonder what’s going on with that,” Camille Grammer told me. “I guess they decided who they want and I guess they are going to start casting, looking for new housewives. They told me they were going to start looking so it wasn’t behind my back. They were like, ‘Sorry we are doing a big casting call.’ I was like, ‘Thanks.’”
Camille admits the decision is hurtful, but understands why the show might need to change things up after an emotionally grueling season dealing with the suicide of Taylor Armstrong’s husband, Russell Armstrong.
“When you watch the scenes between Taylor and Russell it is uncomfortable,” Camille told me. “It’s very uneasy and I think some of the viewers feel that way. I’m glad that some of our viewers are coming back around and joining the season and our viewership is up. We took a little dip because of what had happened and I think we are on a upswing so that is really positive.”
Co-star Kyle Richards told me yesterday that she, like Camille, would like to do another season but was focused more on making sure her sister, Kim Richards, who has just left rehab, gets better.
I think it’s a good idea to switch it up – bring on new “talent”. This year was a bit hard to watch (but of course I still am) with all Taylor’s going through, and Kim obviously having some sort of nervous breakdown. Maybe these women don’t belong on TV. Or maybe they should just get rid of Kyle. I find her self-righteousness sooooooooo annoying!
