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 WILL PAY BIG BUCKS TO SEE THE UNCUT FULL REUNION SHOW AND THE PARTY AT CAMILLE'S HOUSE JUST TO SEPARATE THE REAL FROM THE REALITY SHOW. IT WOULD BE FASCINATING TO COMPARE THE 1 HOUR SHOWS TO SEVERAL HOUR ACTUAL TAPINGS. THEN ALL THE HATEFUL MALICIOUS MISCREANTS MAY WAKE UP TO THE REALITY OF A REALITY SHOW.SOME SITUATIONS ARE STAGED, SCENES ARE SHOT, RETAPED AND EDITED SEVERAL TIMES TO PUT A POSITIVE AND YES MOST LIKELY, A NEGATIVE SPIN ON A CHARACTER. A SEVERAL HOUR SHOOT COMPACTED INTO 45 MINUTES PROVIDES FOR MANY ALTERNATE NOT TRULY REPRESENTATIVE OUTCOMES. OBVIOUSLY THE NASTIER THE BETTER TO PROMOTE A STORYLINE. HONESTY IS BORING. FOR THOSE WHO REALLY BELIEVE THAT THIS IS ALL REAL ,YOU ARE THE DELUSIONAL.FOR ALL OF YOU WHO ARE UNSURE AND POST NASTY HURTFUL COMMENTS ANYWAY , YOU ARE IGNORANT AND HATEFUL. I HOPE YOU FIND SOME HAPPINESS IN YOUR LIVES. CAMILLE IS ONE SMART COOKIE TO HIRE LARRY STEIN ESPECIALLY TO THE EXTENT BRAVO IS DEFAMING HER. SHE MUST HAVE A GOOD CASE AGAINST THEM.

I agree with everyone else that Camille is a self entitled, narsicistic, pompous little snooty pants who hasn't allowed a real person around her in years, to tell her the truth or set her straight. She is definitely delusional and basically just a mean wench. I believe that Kelsey set this up for her to keep her in BH instead of New York getting all up in his business. Another thing I find odd is that she sits there and constantly tries to get everyone to believe that she saved Kelseys life and made him into the business man he is today, yet she couldn't look over her own puny contract with Bravo and protect herself with a beneficial out clause. Way to go Queen Camille, you are sooooooo smart and such a fantastic business woman (snort).

Now, I also agree that Lisa & Adrienne are the best women on there. They are at least sensible people.

Kyle is funny and I like her. Her sister is an idiot and looks like an alcoholic, just by gestures and looks. Not to mention, if I hear one more time about her being a child star and an "Icon" (double snort), I will hunt her down like a dog and muzzle her mouth. She is delusional and weak.

Taylor is just a twit who is married to a man that feels the same as I do about her. 50K for a childs birthday party is just stupid!

Watching the Las Vegas episode, first time seeing any housewive's show.

Camille says (something like) 'I'm glad my husband isn't here, because he get's all the attention' Is this what she means that they edited her to look stupid? She did look like a self absorbed idiot. Bad producers!

The show taped at a bad time in Camille's life (it seems). It showed her at her worse. She will have some repair work to do on her image now. Someone like Camille really doesn't need any reality show. She has enough money married or not. Don't understand why anybody with the means would allow cameras into their lives. Reality TV doesn't do any of these people anygood. Now because of the embarassment and outcome she has to hire an attorney to straighten out the mess it's left behind.

The truth hurts & camille has a hard time seeing how unlikable she is. She is delusional & she would rather blame Bravo versus facing her own reality. All of these reality people blame editing when they don't like what they see. Editing does not put words into your mouth or make dumb facial expressions for you. Own your behavior

Did you ever notice it's the nut jobs that always blame editing (Daniele, Kelly...) even though others that were not always portrayed in the best light (Bethany, Jill) own up to it and just say that they're not proud of it but it is what it is. Just an observation.

She is a huge bitch. None of the girls like her. I'm glad Kelsey finally left her. No one cares if she leaves.

I am soooooooooooo glad to see this fake ass witch leave the show. She should be ashamed of herself - take some time Camille and take care of your kids yourself. They do not need to grow up with Nannies. If you can't handle them, why did you have them. It's just more money for you. You are one selfish loser!

BTW... Did your medium friend tell you this was going to happen?

have you seen this show?? I have never in all my life seen 5 more ugly women. The plastic surgery is laughable; a coupe of them look like cartoon characters. I's hard to watch. Do they actually think they are hot. I can see why Kelsey left that botox queen...jee wiz. She is hideously ugly.

Looks like Camille's psychic may be misrepresenting herself as a "criminal profiler" (Forensic Psychologist)?. This is what she said she was on the show.

I hear the FBI train's profiler's & Psychic's too?

So criminal profiler/psychic's get BOOZED-UP to find criminal's?
Totally confused now.

Actually, editing DOES put words in your mouth! Notice how, in several of the scenes when they were discussing what Kyle said to Camille, they would cut away and use the EXACT same sound clip of Camille saying "why would anyone care about you if Kelsey isn't around" or whatever it is. Camille made that statement once, and the editors made it seem as though she said it over and over again, every time the issue was brought up. That's what editing does--it allows the producers to reinforce and issue, or even invent one when there isn't one. Don't get me wrong--I'm not defending Camille's actions or statements. But remember that you are seeing someone else's interpretation of these arguments, edited for dramatic emphasis. Watch anything--everything "reality" with caution.
