When Camille Grammer threw a dinner party for her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast mates, even she couldn’t have foreseen how horribly it would blow up in her face. It was her dinner guest and friend, Allison DuBois, though, who made the dinner party particularly hellish.
Now DuBois (who inspired CBS’ “Medium,” which was executive produced by the Grammers) tells The Examiner that what we saw was the result of Bravo’s clever editing.
“These are real people with real lives. Bravo edits for ratings,” she says. “Camille is a sweet person. I was not shown in the best of light, but I was there for her, not for publicity. You don’t go on that show for good publicity.”
And good publicity is exactly what she didn’t get. But according to the article, DuBois says Bravo edited out the parts of the night that made her look likeable, such as her conversation with cast member Kyle Richards about her late mother’s cancer before the fighting erupted. She also says the network didn’t show that Richards’ friend, Faye Resnick, did most of the yelling that evening.
And as for whether she was drunk that night, DuBois says, “It was a four hour dinner party. I had two to three cocktails in four hours and was most definitely not intoxicated. If it offended any fans I apologize.”
