The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are all over the tabloids these days. First, there's Brandi Glanville, who won't stay out of headlines because of her feud with LeAnn Rimes. And now there's (former?) castmember, Camille Grammer, who appeared on Anderson Cooper's show, Anderson Live, and spilled that Kelsey will not allow their kids to say her name in his house.
Man, the Real Housewives may seem nuts compared to the majority of the population, but when you juxtapose them with the people in their lives, they're the sane ones. WTF kind of rule is this?
Camille told Anderson: "They're not allowed to say my name in the house. These poor kids, my daughter and my son, can't say my name in their father's house. I think they can say 'Mom' or 'the other household,'" she adds. "But they can't say my name. They can't say 'Camille.'" She confessed to consulting with a lawyer regarding the issue, adding, "It must be stressful for them to not be able to say their mother's name."
Okay, now this is a super weird rule. And I definitely don't agree with it. But. Why are Camille's kids referring to her by name in the first place? Who does that? Isn't it customary to call the female who birthed and raised you "Mom"? (I know, Camille used a surrogate, but you know what I'm saying.)
I don't know, man. From what Camille has spilled about her ex -- and from what we've seen -- Kelsey Grammer is a weirdo and a control freak. I definitely don't get why her kids would want to call her "Camille", but if that's how they roll, who the hell is Kelsey to stop that? Way to mess up your kids, buddy.
What do you think of this?
