Get well, Camille Grammer! After being diagnosed with early stage endometrial cancer, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 45, "underwent a radical hysterectomy" on Friday, Oct. 11, her rep tells Us Weekly. "The surgery went very well and she is expected to make a complete recovery following a significant recuperation period," the rep adds of the mother of two and ex-wife of Kelsey Grammer.
The rep explains that the former model and dancer "was at elevated risk due to genetic issues and has been diligent about regular check-ups and monitoring which explains the early detection and rapid treatment." The Bravo star "expresses gratitude to all the amazing health care professionals who have taken such loving and nurturing care of her . . .She urges all women to be aware of genetic factors relating to women's cancers and get regular check-ups."
Grammer appeared on seasons one and two of RHOBH, returning in a smaller, featured role for season 3. She's not expected to turn up for the upcoming fourth season, where newbies Joyce Giraud and Carlon Gebbia will be joining the cast alongside Kyle and Kim Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster.
(Fellow original castmembers Taylor Armstrong and Adrienne Maloof left the show after season three.)
