One of the just announced stars from “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” didn’t initially want to appear on the Bravo series – and it took some convincing from her soon-to-be-ex husband.

“The truth is I didn’t want to do the show,” “Real Housewives” star Camille Grammer recently told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson when she sat down for an exclusive interview with the ladies of the real 90210.

“Kelsey wanted me to do the show,” the reality star and former “Club MTV” dancer, who filed for divorce from the actor in July, continued. “When we were together, he though it would be good for basically the country and women out there to know who his wife really is.”

Despite the fact that Camille was close to some of her co-stars, she was apprehensive about giving the cameras full access.

“I still wasn’t sure because I just didn’t want to expose my life in this manner,” she explained, adding, “I’m glad I did it… these women have been amazing and they’ve been the strength behind me through this experience that I’m having.”

“Will we see in the show you going through the separation with Kelsey?’ Shaun asked.

“You’ll have to stay tuned,” Camille said coyly.

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” debuts on Bravo on October 14. For more of Shaun’s exclusive interview with the “Housewives” tune in to Access Hollywood on Wednesday night, and to find out more about the other ladies of the 90210, CLICK HERE!
