Poor Camille Grammer. It seems, as Patti Stanger would say, her picker is off. After getting her life back in order after divorcing Kelsey Grammer, Camille took up with a greek boytoy named Dimitri Charalambopoulos. They went in to business together, which I assume essentially means that Camille gave his vitamin business a financial infusion, and we didn’t hear much more out of her. That point is important as there are now conflicting reports about what happened last October in a Houston hotel room.
Here is Camille’s verision:
It seems that Dimitri got a phone call from another woman who was screaming at him on the phone. This caused and argument between Camille and Dimitri. He grabbed her by the hair ripping out handfuls of hair and threw her on the bed. He also broke her iPhone so she could not call for help!
Dimitri apparently flew into a rage and according to documents obtained by TMZ, Camille claims Dimitri “squeezed my nose between his finger and pushed upward forcefully, covering my mouth in an attempt to silence me to prevent me from breathing.” Camille also claims Dimitri shoved her on the hotel bed, “repeatedly slamming my head and face into the furniture and completely immobilizing me.” She claims he said, “I wanna smash your head in. I’ll give you a reason to call the cops.” according to the documents filed. Camille was in court to file for a restraining order. The restraining order was granted. Continue reading
Wow. So much bad news for Camille Grammer today. First, it seems she is being treated for cancer. While recovering from surgery in a Houston hotel room on October 16th, her boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos brutally attacked her over and over for nearly an hour! Continue reading
Most of the best posts of April were about the departure of Sheree Whitfield from RHOA. I explain why she got fired. I posted a lovely eulogy for her, I found an interview by her eldest daughter…basically there were a lot of Sheree posts in April. I also tried in vain to explain Nene’s salary. Perhaps the most unusual thing I posted about in April was Camille Grammar going in on the former girlfriend of her new flame, Dimitri Charalambopoulos. A voice recording surfaced in a legal investigation and it wasn’t the cute. sweet Camille we see on TV on the phone. Shocker! Anyway, click a link or two and see what you might have missed.

On this week’s recap of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, we are back at Mauricio’s big business launch party and everything has gone to shit. Taylor and Brandi’s gay friends are asking if they are okay. Well okay, allegedly gay. Darin is supposedly straight. Kyle of course blames Kim for ruining Mauricio’s event. Because, you know it just organically happened and Kyle had no idea about the script. So she once again throws her recently rehabbed sister under the bus. Mauricio on the other hand did read the script. By the way, Mauricio looks like shit. Is it the beard or what? Mauricio’s script says to fuck with Brandi rather than defend her from Paul, so that is what he does. That makes him look even worse. Brandi apologizes.
Camille is trying to cover for Adrienne as a fellow surrogacy mom. Camille is says “We don’t know if it is true.” Oh bullshit everyone knows, Camille. At least you didn’t take pictures of a pillow shoved up your dress to make your kids think you birthed them. Allegedly. According to the script. Don’t sue me, sue Bravo, again. Public knowledge. I have not money, etc. Kyle says to Kim,” You don’t have to be rude to me.” Um, irony? Thy name is Kyle.
Taylor is sooo overacting. She looks at the camera and asks how her lips look. Okay she doesn’t but there was a thought bubble over her head. Camille and Taylor both think Brandi saying that Adrienne used a gestational carrier? surrogate? to carry her kids is wrong. It’s not like it was a big secret it was one of the first things on the blogs when RHOBH hit the air. Brandi was not telling us something we did not already know. Adrienne and Paul bringing a lawsuit make it a HUGE deal. Bravo airing the scene with no sound made it EVEN HUGER because IT WAS ALREADY OUT THERE!. Continue reading

Crap, WordPress apparently ate the first part of my blog when I hit publish. I’M SO SORRY MY BLOG GOT MANGLED DURING PUBLICATION! I don’t know why WordPress saves a draft and then drops out the images and/or the first paragraphs. NOT COOL WORDPRESS. The beginning of the show showed Kyle and Mauricio giving Alexia a brand new white Mercedes Coupe. Also Brandi called Lisa to make sure that one of Eddie’s jumpoffs would not be a server at her tasting event. Lisa assured her she would not be. There was essentially a plug for Vanderpump Rules where Lisa has to discipline a waitress at SUR for making a comment to a big time agent the night before. Apparently he was there for Andy Cohen’s book party and the waitress told the agent that the party was boring.
At the tasing event for SUR’s new appetizers Lisa serve “Japanese Quesadillas” which is a wonton stuffed with mozzarella and topped with lobster guacamole. I had a lot to say about that and wanted to know what you guys thought. sigh. This is so irritating. Anyway I guess the most important parts are below.
Updating again because the show is repeating and I am remember all sorts of things that got erased when the blog published. Kyle’s line for the tasting party was, “So Brandi what really went down between you and Adrienne?” and she delivered it like a pro. Brandi talks about Adrienne lying a lot and about her calling Brandi trying to get her to tweet things that favored Adrienne and made Lisa look bad. This makes perfect sense to me because Adrienne called all the girls trying to get everyone to gang up on Lisa a the finale of last season. Kyle an Taylor agreed to do so. Brandi went on and on about things and the editing was actually rather clever tuning us in and out of Brandi’s ramblings over a long period of time. Kim says something like this is starting to feel like Adrienne bashing because clearly had she been sober enough to attend the reunion she would have been on the right-side couch with the Lisa/Brandi bashers. Plus TamaraTattles readers knew on Saturday that Kim was going to tell Adrienne about surrogate allegations which leads to Adrienne and Paul suing Brandi. Kim asks for feedback from Taylor after the event.

Camille Grammer’s attempts to keep her boyfriend, his past, and his brother’s past are failing. I reported Tuesday that Camille was on Good Morning America explaining why she left RHOBH. I also told you in that post that Camille has gone into the health supplement business with Dimitri and rumors of an engagement abound. It seems as though things are not as carefree as the couple appeared in Vegas. It seems that Dimitri Charalambopoulos has a girlfriend/baby mama in Dallas named Lisa Chynoweth. Lisa would like to move to Colorado with their son Marcus. For reasons that are unclear since Dimitri has essentially moved to Malibu, Dimitri is fighting this and Camille goes in on the girlfriend in a recorded phone conversation. Click the link for text version. In the videotaped deposition with Dimitri, Chynoweth’s lawyers play a tape of Camille making what they consider threats toward both Lisa and her son. She is heard in a very ugly voice saying: “If you go to the press, I have lawyers that are beyond what you can imagine and they will pull stuff on you and you will be so mortified about your life and your family and what you have done. You don’t want to do that to Marcus. I will desecrate you, believe me, and that I can do, so be careful what you say and what you do because my defamation attorneys are huge, they’re the best and the people out there in the press that know me, they’re the best and they will hunt down and research every nook and cranny of your life.”
Well that sure isn’t sweet little ole season two Camille now is it? Well Camille’s side of the story is that she was going through her custody problems with Kelsey at the time of the phone call. She claims (through some anon source to RadarOnline) that Lisa said she was receiving phone calls from the media wanting a statement about Camille. Camille became threatened and went off. That is why the comment begins with “if you go to the press.” That does make a lot of sense as she refers to her
Yesterday a judge ruled that the video above should be removed by Lisa. We will see how long it stays up; however, the toothpaste is out of the tube. And it seems more and more likely that Camille has gotten herself in very deeply with someone with a very messy past. And really, arguing over a man with the ex is not very classy.
UPDATED: September 25, 2013 TMZ reported the following today. Camille just won the lawsuit, and she won without a fight, because Lisa never filed an answer to the complaint … so the judge just issued a default judgment.Lisa has been ordered never to release the recording in question ever again, as well as NEVER to record Camille without her permission. Period.
Camille Grammer and her boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos showed up this morning for an interview with Katie Couric on Good Morning America. Camille tells Katie that she told Bravo that she was unwilling to have her children on camera (I can barely recall ever seeing them anyway) and that she would not have her relationship with Dimitri on the show. These seem like reasonable enough requests. Having your relationship on TV has never been helpful to anyone’s relationship and more often than not it really puts a strain on it. Just think of all the people that have gotten a divorce after being on a reality show. It seems any grand wedding in her future will not be on Bravo. But there is more to know about her relationship with Dimitri…
Dimitri is from Dallas and has a brother there who has a pretty bad criminal record. I don’t think Camille wants to draw attention to all that. Meanwhile Dimitri who is a licensed attorney in Texas seems to have relocated to California. In a blog by D Magazine
out of Dallas, it was reported (in October) that Dimitri was planning to open a vitamin line. That article ran in October and just today Camille tweeted that she was excited to share her new venture, Wellnetix.com
. Oh so coincidentally, despite the fact that the owners of Wellnetix are not mentioned on the website, the contract address is in Dallas Texas. It appears that Dimitri has found a great investor! Surprisingly Camille does not mention Dimitri with regard to her “new venture”.
So after Camille made these conditions known to Bravo, they countered offering her a “friend of the housewives” contract much like Brandi and Pam had last season. Camille seemed a bit offended by that and decided it wasn’t worth her time and energy. Camille has plenty of money and is clearly more interested in the “prestige” associated with being a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills. So though Camille says in the video above that she is open to another reality show, it looks like for now she is going into the health and fitness market.
