Camille Grammer: 'I Only Wore The Ring For The Photo Shoot'

By Celebrity News Wire on December 8, 2011

We were all more than a little shocked when word got out that Camille Grammer was still wearing a 10k diamond ring her ex-husband Kelsey Grammer gave her on their fifth anniversary, holding onto a symbol of their now-broken 14-year marriage. But the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star is setting the record straight -- and believe me, she's over Kelsey.

"Am I still in love with Kesley? No," Camille told me. "It's easy to fall out of love with someone when they are putting you through such hell."

So why is she still wearing a ring that was given to her by a man who has moved on -- so quickly, in fact, that he has already married his fourth wife, Kayte Walsh?

"I only wore the ring for the photo shoot," Camille explained. "I did a photo shoot for Life & Style magazine and they had asked me to bring my bling. That ring is bling, along with other gifts that I have gotten from my ex over 14 years. I had acquired a lot of rings in my relationship. So whenever anyone asks me to bring my bling, that comes along with it."

However, two rings that Kelsey gave Camille before he broke her heart that you will never see on her finger are the reality star's wedding and engagement rings.

"I have my wedding ring and engagement ring in a safe," she says. "I plan on giving them to my daughter. I don't wear them anymore and I don't want to hock them. That is so vulgar and cheap."

But Camille does have a few new rings that mean more to her than any jewels her ex gave her -- a plastic, light-up ring from her new man, Dimitri Charalambopoulos.

"The first night I met Dimitri we were in Vegas and he gave me a giant flashing light ring," Camille recalled. "It was like a silly engagement ring that looked like it was 40 carats with a flashing light. It was adorable. He said someone must really love you. ... A 10 carat diamond ring cannot hug you back and give you love."

It's settled. Bling is bling -- and that's all.
