The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills vs. Other Real Housewives
Camille Grammer vs. Danielle Staub of New Jersey
Although some may believe Frasier star Kelsey Grammer’s now ex-wife, Camille, is this season’s Michaele Salahi, don’t let the blond hair and previous notoriety fool you: Grammer may have more in common with New Jersey’s Danielle Staub than the infamous D.C. White House crasher. While Grammer appears to be more even-tempered than Staub, the two do have some striking similarities—both are former “dancers,” and like Staub, Grammer spent her younger years in New Jersey and attended Montclair State University. The divorcees also share scorn for their exes (both of whom have since moved on), leaving the single ladies to raise their respective two children alone. And the parallels continue when it comes to their candidness about their bathroom-related activities. Staub famously exclaimed that she suffered from diarrhea for three weeks because of her fellow castmates in the explosive table-flipping first season finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Grammer became a spokeswoman for irritable bowel syndrome a decade ago. She spoke out about its debilitating effects on Today in 2000, when ex-husband Kelsey told America, “We can’t basically make a lot of plans because you never know when an episode might come on.” Tune in to see how that unfolds.
