Camille is dishing all the dirty details about her split from husband Kelsey Grammer — but is her overshare TMI?

Camille Grammer has SUFFERED since her husband decided to leave her for another woman, and she isn’t shy about letting the world know exactly how she feels! In fact, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star might be revealing a little TOO much; on last night’s episode of her Bravo show, she went into lengthy detail about how Kelsey Grammer broke the news that he wanted a divorce. Should she be wearing her heart so blatantly on her sleeve, or are some things better off being left private?

Well, duh. Although we may feel like we’re her friends because we see her life played out in public on a weekly basis, we are not, in fact, BFFs with Camille Grammer. We’ve never met her and, therefore, should not be hearing intimate details regarding her sexless marriage to the Frasier star. Sure, we’re soaking it in and can’t wait to see what she’ll say next, but is it right? Not by a long shot.

Everyone handles pain differently. When we’re going through rough times, our natural inclinations are either to shut ourselves off from the world, or to talk about our pain. But those of us that need to speak our minds should be doing so with our best friends, family members or with a therapist. We don’t announce our devastation on cable.

Her sexless marriage aside, the reality star has let complete strangers know how her husband ended their 13 years together (on the phone), her thoughts on Kelsey’s new soon-to-be-wife Kayte Walsh (she hates being traded in for a newer model) and her decision to tell 9-year-old daughter Mason the truth about what happened with daddy. These are NOT things we should know, and shame on Camille if she’s publicly talking about her pain to gain the American sympathy vote!
