Camille Grammer Dishes on Tense Meeting With Kelsey’s Fiancee


Oh, if only Bravo's cameras were rolling in NYC on Wednesday — when Camille Grammer brokered a surprise first meeting with Kayte Walsh, her estranged husband Kelsey's 29-year-old fiancee.

"It was interesting to say the least," Camille, 42, told Andy Cohen Thursday night on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. The reality star was handing over her two kids with Kelsey, 55, who had noted via text that his new bride-to-be would be present.

"My girlfriend Diedre, who you saw on the show, says, 'We have to go down and meet her.'"

And…? "She was nice, and we both said hello. She has a very strong handshake," the former Playboy modeled quipped with a laugh. "It was uncomfortable. Kelsey looked shocked. The look on his face!"

She added: "It's the first time I've seen him and her together. And with my children, that was uncomfortable."

On Thursday's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the former Frasier actor told Camille (via un-aired phone call) that their 13 year marriage was over — but he asks her to be his escort at the Tony Awards anyway.

Hours after that episode aired, Kelsey appeared on Thursday's The Late Show with David Letterman and announced his plans to marry flight attendant Kayte next month, despite his un-resolved divorce with Camille.  Kayte even appeared in the audience holding her future stepkids.

"He uses them as props," Camille sniped of the move. "It's tough. It's harsh. It hurts, of course."

Camille also opens up about all the drama in the new issue of Us Weekly — and admits she's no fan of her on-screen persona on the show.

"I hate the person who I am on that show," she tells Us. "She is a monster."

But she had good reason for her often baffling behavior — she complained to her cancer-stricken mom that she was tired, despite the help of two nannies and famously handed costar Kyle Richards a copy of How to Behave and How.

"I was preoccupied with my personal life," says Grammer. "It's difficult to raise children through texting."
