Camille Grammer vs Kayte Walsh: Who Do We Pity More?

Camille GrammerCamille Grammer, 42, and her ex Kelsey, 55, met for the first time in months yesterday. But to make matters even worse, Kelsey thought it'd be a great idea to bring along his fiancee, Kayte Walsh, 29. This occurred on top of the airing of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last night, where we see Kelsey breaking it off with Camille in a way that would leave any woman devastated. Though the filming of the breakup occurred months ago, this was the first time the audiences of RHOBH actually got to see it in all its splendor.

Even though RHOBH tends to depict Camille as a psychotic villain, the recent meeting with her ex and his hunny reveals a side of Camile we don't normally see: that of a regular human being taking the high road. Especially in light of last night's RHOBH episode, where Kelsey treated her like crap, has the impossible just happened? We might actually feel badly for a housewife! Get your $50 mill, girl!

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills "star" says about the encounter with Kayte:

I saw Kelsey today and I met Kayte for the first time ... It was a little uncomfortable at first, but then I met her and I shook her hand and I looked into her eyes and I thought, "She's OK, she's nice."

Kelsey said he and Kayte would be picking up Camille and Kelsey's two children. Camille walked right outside when they arrived and introduced herself to Kayte. Pretty ballsy, but at least there were no tables flipped or fake nails lost. Camille said it was important for the two of them to finally meet -- a healthy outlook for someone so Botoxed and burned. I mean, "she's nice"? Instead of "this home-wrecking 20-something completely ruined my marriage and my family"? Seriously, even though it's easy to make fun of Camille and how crazy she is, it still doesn't mean she deserved her husband's infidelity.

On last night's episode, Kelsey ended the marriage by calling her in the middle of the night and telling her. Then, he asked her to be his date to the Tony Awards. She was able to stay strong for her family's sake and then flew to NYC. Kelsey showed even more class by putting her in a hotel suite instead of "their" apartment. The couple had to fake it for the cameras at the Tonys even though Kelsey had a knocked-up mistress waiting for him at home. It was just a terrible and annoying way to handle the entire thing, and you couldn't help but feel sorry for Camille.

Regardless, between watching the actual breakup and having Camille and Kayte finally meet, the whole situation has reached an entirely new level of dysfunction. The fact that Kelsey deemed it appropriate to bring along his 29-year-old fiancee when meeting his ex for the first time in months and ending a 13-year marriage over the phone means this entire family drama is probably way beyond the thought process of boring folks like you and me.

How would you feel if your ex brought his new fiancee along when meeting for the first time in months?
