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.

Oh how I will miss Camille. She was so fun to hate. She is so fake it's unbelievable. No wonder Kelsey left her. I can't believe he stayed with her as long as he did. But that crazy friend of hers Allison made her look almost normal. That had to be an act. That woman was the meanest, craziest person I've ever seen on TV. I can't believe they made a show about that nut job.

Cmille has no one to blame for her own disgraceful behavior, Bravo just filmed her narcissism.

Good. Leave. You're obnoxious. And nobody edited you to look obnoxious any more than they edited Danielle Staub to look bat***t crazy. You just are what you are.

Lisa is my favorite out of all of them, then Adrienne. I cannot stomach Kyle, I think she's a SKANK along with her sister Kim.

She is crazy. The tv didn't portray you in that light, you did! Did they make you say the girls were jealous of you? Did they make you say you were on a higher level than Kyle because her husband is just a realtor? Did they make you hang all over guys even though they're married? Did they make you talk about your boobs in front of the cast's husbands? Did they make you dance like a stripper? NO! You already looked/sounded bad when you stated your kids were born via surrogate because you didn't want to damage your body. Who does that?! And no one is jealous of you! Your eyes are uneven & bulge out of your head & you have a nasty attitude! The only reason you have those "friends" is because you pay them, pay their bills, or let them live w/you.

Taylor Armstrong is the real Phony and Fake one. Her real name is Shana Hughes. She changed her name (before she married Russell) to "Taylor Ford" and told a lot of people that she was from the "Ford Motor Family" from Oklahoma, when in reality she was "Shana Hughes". How pathetic!

Camille was very entertaining to watch...without her, the show will be so boring. Camille' dilusional outlooks were hilarious.
Taylor Armstrong is the real phony one. Her birth name was "Shana Hughes" and she changed it to "Taylor Ford" and used to tell a lot of people that she was from the "Ford Motor Family" from Oklahoma to make herself look like a wealthy trust fund person...when in reality she really was Shana Hughes from Oklahoma - a "regular" person. How pathetic is that!

She should leave, the way she is being portrayed is the way she really is. Another thing is that no wonder Medium was cancelled, after the real Allison Dubawy was in the housewives, no one would have watched the medium anyway, she was a drunk and vindictive person.
