I’m sure you know who Camille Grammer is, right?

She, the soon to be ex-wife of Kelsey Grammer?

He, who after almost 14 years of marriage and two kids decides to take on a mistress and ends said 14 year marriage.

I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of Camille at the beginning of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I only watched the show because I WAS a fan of Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump.

I initially found Camille child-like and child-ish. I thought that she relied far too heavily on her looks and seemed to be just holding her head above water trying to deal with the day to day dealings with her husband out of town.

I thought that she was out of place and out of touch.

I’ve since changed my mind..

Maybe it’s because it’s become apparent (at least to me) that Kelsey wanted her to do the show to keep her occupied while he ran around with is mistress on the other side of the country.. and that doesn’t sit well with me.

I don’t understand “cheating” .. if you feel as though your relationship has gone as far as it has gone then buck up and be honest. It doesn’t serve anyone any good.. doesn’t make one look better thanĀ the other.. and certainly, when there are kids involved and you’re in the spotlight no good can come of it.

I feel bad for Camille… I think she has always had to prove herself beyond her looks and has been put in situations where she was definitely a feeder fish in a tank full of piranhas.

I also think that she truly believed in her marriage and wasn’t like oh.. I don’t know.. Taylor Armstrong, maybe?

And while she has been going on various talk shows and radio shows saying some pretty eyebrow raising things about her almost former husband, I think it’s more out of self preservation then lashing out. I mean, really, with all the ammo she has and with all the embarrassment she’s suffered because of him she could be putting up billboards y’know?

So it looks like she’s taken a more higher road then a lot of other people may have taken and that really does say more about her then it does about him.

Read the following and tell me if you agree with it.. or don’t agree with it.. and why.

I’m just curious what your thoughts are:

The United States is still a capitalist society, but capitalism in the Real America will be an enlightened way to wealth. Sure, some people will always try to make a buck by squeezing the little people, but in the Real America, I’ll be able to make more money .. I’ll be able to make more of a profit.. by treating employees with dignity and giving them access to non-governmental health care and paying them what they deserve. In the Real America, the employee will be a partner and we’ll all enrich one another.

In the Real America our current plastic politicians will be replaced by the more genuine, lifelike and human robots in Disney’s Hall of Presidents. Actually, partisan politics is a tough topic to tackle, but we will, shortly.

Basically, Real Politics in this better America will be based on principle not policy: Real Ethics, Real Values, Real Integrity. As Real Americans, we will not expect to agree with everything a certain politicians says, but we will be able to demand that politicians always say what they mean and mean what they say. The Real American Politician will look us in the eyes and say, “Look, Jack, you may completely disagree with me on this one issue, but here are these eight other issues on which we do agree. And more important, we agree on principles. And that’s just the way it is. If you can vote for me, great. If not, I understand ’cause I don’t need this job badly enough to lie to you or myself.”

Martin Luther King’s dream will come true in Real America: a colorblind society.. but without political correctness. Unfortunately, King’s dream has been perverted and twisted by so many, white and black alike, that it is barely recognizable today. In Real America, we will know that white men aren’t racist; one man can be racist. Black men aren’t lazy; one man can be lazy and racism is not an American problem, it’s a human problem.

The Real America is the America we all saw on the evening of September 11 and in the days and weeks that followed, but without violence, without sorrow, without mourning. It is an America where the question “How are you?” is sincerely asked, and the answer is heard with real concern.

The Real America is a place in our hearts. It’s authentic. It’s a place we remember. And it’s a place we can live in today.

But there are forces keeping us from being the Real Americans and living in the Real America: Now, I’m not one of those people pointing a finger at Hollywood or pointing the finger at television or blaming music, because it’s not just that.

But it is just that. It’s all of that.. and one more thing.

The most insidious force keeping us from being the Real Americans is ourselves.

So what do y’all think? Let me know.. and once you do, I’ll fill you in on the rest.
