Camille Grammer to Bravo: I'm Now Ready to Walk

1/6/2011 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Camille Grammer has negotiated a settlement with Bravo, which gives her the ability to leave "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" immediately, TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ, Camille hired the famous Larry Stein, Esq., who has repped Rob LoweEva Longoria, Timbaland and many other celebs, to sit at the bargaining table with Bravo.

As we reported ... Camille wanted off the show because she feels she was portrayed as a hateable woman ... not representative of who she really is.

According to Camille's deal, Bravo had the right to either pick up her option for season 2 or cut her, but the contract didn't give Camille the right to walk.  Stein went to Bravo and argued the network misrepresented to Camille the way she would be portrayed and therefore she was fraudulently induced into signing on.

TMZ has learned ... a few days ago Stein got Bravo to give Camille an out in her deal, allowing her to walk right now.

We're told Camille's intention is to leave the show, but she won't formally exercise her option until the reunion show airs later this month. The subtext -- if Bravo has any hope of keeping Camille they better be nice in the editing bay.

Stein could not be reached for comment.

I WISH SHE WOULD STAY. SHE MAKES THE SHOW MORE INTERESTING. ISN'T IT INTERESTING THAT KELSEY IS DUMPING HER FOR A WOMAN WHO APPEARS TO HAVE HAD NO PLASTIC SURGERY? CAMILLE IS NOT PRETTY. SHE IS FUNNY-LOOKING IN AN UGLY WAY.

Good Riddance Camille! This is the best thing that could've happened for the show. All of them look good for their ages but that fakeness Camille gives off comes from the inside.Kyle and Adreinne are the two most real wives on the show. Lisa is funny as hell and Kim is just confused. I love Taylor and her opening up some Oklahoma on Kims a**! Too funny. Camille however is truly unlikeable, fake, shallow, low class, and a gold digger!I wonder if allison duboise got her reading of Kyle mixed up with Camille's! Don't look back Kelsey! 50 mil is a small price to pay to be rid of the four nanny having succubus!

She is a big fake nothing with a bank account.

And get aload of that Taylor - sad, sad, sad.

Just goes to show ya, skinny & rich isn't everything... brains, degree, and some good common sence are better.

She is a sociopath and a black widow... Karma is a bitch obviously a bigger one than Camille. I've never ever witnessed a woman so insecure with herself, she is the epitome of ( money can't buy you class). An emaciated barbie doll, for her to think that others are jealous of her she clearly needs to start a heavy dose of lithium! Women should love and encourage and hold each other up. I've never, ever felt the need to see somebody be blacklisted publicly and socially marred except this venomous snake in the grass!

Poor poor Camille. The TRUTH is stranger than fiction. Not only does a camera add 10 lbs to someone, but it catches someone's true essence. But, she isn't alone. Most of the women on that reality show are empty vessels of plastic. However, it's entertaining to watch one-dimensional, stick figures tear each other down.

I like Camille and would love to see the actual footage of the conversation that started this whole mess. Kyle is no angel and has a filthy nasty mouth! I gaurentee she will be the next hated one on this show IF Camille leaves....but I do not think she will. She is too smart to walk away now. This is all created drama and excellent PR. I saw Camille on the Ellen show and she was delightful...really good personality and didn't seem all drugged up for once at all. Kyle is the one that needs to grow up in my opinion, and has not learned how to treat family. I hope Kim will grow some balls by next season and put her in her place once and for all.

Watch and see what a bitch she'll be about money she'll want the house in Hawaii - Malibu and who knows ow much she'll want for daily maintenance - since she is high maintenance it will be a killing and she will not be nice about it she'll even brag and believes this is making her a strong woman - when she is just giving others a bad name - I never saw one true act of concern or attention when she was with Kelsey who did please? And a 3500 sq ft apt in NYC she made sound like a slum!!I think the names she is being called are rather accurate!!!!

Camille thought she would be the fav , then reality set in she's the villian, and instead of owning what she created (not bravo) she wants to run. Coward. I guess it wasn't her time to shine,it showed who she really is and why Kelsey is divorcing her.

Camille ... get help! You need to develop some self-confidence, some self-worth, and some self-esteem. Taylor got it right. You're insecure and way inappropriate. Stop flaunting yourself around the men and definitely stop kissing your manfriend's on the lips in front of his wife. Wow, did you see her face when you did that? Really?
