Camille Grammer Confirms ‘Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ Return And Gives Cancer Update!

Camille Grammer has confirmed her return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and is teasing upcoming season seven drama. The 48-year-old reality star opened up about her return to the Bravo reality series at New York Fashion Week on Thursday, when she supported her 14-year-old daughter, Mason Grammer, who walked the runway for designer Malan Breton. Mason's father is Camille's ex-husband, actor Kelsey Grammer.

"This is something, you know, it is all hers -- nothing to do with me or my ex-husband," Camille told Entertainment Tonight. "This is her own thing and I am very proud of her."

Camille confirmed she's currently filming for season seven of RHOBH. A production source tells Entertainment Tonight that while Camille is back on the show, she's not a full-time cast member.

"We are filming now," Camille said. "We are in the throes of it now, and we had a fun party last week in Malibu, so you will see that in the show and that was really exciting."

She added: "There is drama this year, and there is a different type of drama," she says. "I don't know, I don't think that I can say too much ... but um, our show never lacks it. I can say that it never lacks the drama."

Currently, the cast remains Lisa Vanderpump, Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne, Eileen Davidson and Dorit Kemsley. The mother of two hasn’t been a full-time cast member of the Bravo reality show since 2013, but has made appearances in almost every season since.

Grammer is also opening up on how she's getting her sexy back since surviving stage two endometrial cancer. Camille recently modeled in a bikini-clad beach photo shoot with photographer Lisa Boyle, later taking to Instagram to share the unretouched photos. The mother-of-two said she's "proud" of her scars, and isn't going to hide them.

"Well, I had a radical hysterectomy," she explained. "I had a very aggressive form of cancer so, you know, when I take these photographs -- at first I was embarrassed of my scars, but now I'm not. It's part of what I've been through. I have survived it, I am a warrior."



"I am in remission and will be three years [cancer-free] in January," she continued. "That was the end of my treatment, the end of my chemo radiation [was] beginning of January [2014], so that was my New Year's gift that year."

Camille hopes that by sharing her body-confident snaps, she can inspire other cancer survivors to follow in her footsteps.

"After you have a hysterectomy, you don't feel feminine," she said. "A part of your femininity and your female body parts are removed, so it was very important for me to feel feminine again, and because the loss of hormones and everything like that, I felt insecure."

"I felt just part of my life was, you know, my life has changed, and you have to adjust to the changes, the hormones," she added. "I was immediately in surgical menopause, and [had] to work through that. I haven't really taken any, because the cancer I had, I can't really take any hormone replacements, so I am on very small doses. I take dance classes to feel feminine."

Sadly, Camille's mother is currently battling cancer for the third time. "She was originally diagnosed with ovarian [cancer] at 47 years old, stage three," Camille told Entertainment Tonight. "She survived that, and she is on her third cancer -- it's a bladder cell that is in her kidneys and in her bladder."

"It's incurable, but she is on a maintenance program and she is still here, thank God," Camille revealed. "She will be here today at the show cheering on [my daughter] Mason with my dad. That's why it's so important for me to speak about below the belt cancers."

"Ours is genetic, it's in my family," she continued. "It is called lynch syndrome -- it's the genetic mutation I have, and I just I think it's very important to raise awareness and to inform our youth and these teenage girls about cervical cancers, and getting checkups, and how important it is to get your annual checkup. Early detection is key."
