kelsey camille grammer getty Camille Grammer got 'Real Housewives' as a 'parting gift' from KelseyActor Kelsey Grammer has an interesting spin on his ex-wife Camille Grammer‘s spot on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” He says it’s her parting gift from him, Kelsey tells US Weekly.

“In my mind [‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’] was my parting gift to her,” says Grammer. “It was a very difficult marriage and a very difficult decade. I thought, ‘So long, here’s a present for you.'”

How magnanimous of him.

Meanwhile, a year ago Camille told the New York Post a different story about her joining the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

“Looking back, maybe he wanted to keep me preoccupied in California while he was off having his affair in New York. I think it was more Kelsey’s agenda. I was very reluctant, because I am a very private person,” says Camille.

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” airs Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
