Camille Grammer has been busy putting her life back together since she lost her Malibu home in
But, as many Californians have been forced to do, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has found a glimmer of good in the ashes of her former life.
On Tuesday’s episode of After Show following this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the 50-year-old former dancer said her home burning down has brought her family closer together, yes, in a physical sense as they’re living in a trailer, but also in an emotional and spiritual one.

Though living in a trailer can be ‘a little too close for comfort,’ the reality TV star is looking on the positive side.
Grammer, who is now married to David C. Meyer, has two children, Mason, 17, and Jude, 14, with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer.
While Jude is living with his father, Mason is making the most of her new living quarters.
The mom of two said, ‘We are on top of each other, it is a little too close for comfort at times. But my daughter Mason said to me, “I like being here, I like it.”‘

It’s not perfect, Grammer admitted, saying, ‘Its tiny, she sleeps in the bottom bunk. She is in a cocoon.’
But it does have some benefits she wasn’t expecting.
‘We are eating dinner together, we are watching TV shows together,’ she said, continuing, ‘[Mason] is spending more time with her step-dad, my husband, and we are all getting along.’
‘That is a benefit from all this loss, this is something really good that came out of this.’

Memories: Camille previously branded the loss of her home, which has now been demolished, a ‘tragedy,’ especially as it happened just weeks after her wedding
Grammer previously branded the loss of her home, which was demolished after filming the episode, a ‘tragedy,’ especially as it happened just weeks after her wedding.
‘I went from one of the best days of my life, to such a tragedy,’ she said.
‘It’s so sad. It’s such a tragedy.’
The reality star admitted that, after being told to evacuate and gathering as many of their belongings together as they could, she and her daughter were convinced they were about to lose their home.

On fire: It was embers from a nearby fire that were to blame
‘We were standing in the house before we left and Mason said to me, “Mom, I get this feeling our house isn’t going to make it.” And I said, “Honey, I hope it does, but I have the same feeling.” We just thought, this is it. I had a pit in my stomach.’
In the episode, Grammer walked through her once glamorous Malibu mansion, now gutted and strewn with red caution tape that stretched across the rooms.
It was embers from a nearby fire that were to blame.
They caught the eaves of her house, she said, and firemen fought for more than four hours to save it.

Horror: ‘Looks like some horror movie,’ the producer said while walking through her former home
‘Looks like some horror movie,’ she said while wearing a face mask and walking through her former home with her daughter Mason.
And as much as a home is never just a building, Grammer’s house had a deep personal meaning to her as it was the first house she bought after her divorce from Frasier star Kelsey Grammer.
‘That was my house, that was all mine,’ she pointed out, ‘And now that’s taken from me. It’s devastating.’
The Woolsey fire destroyed 1,500 structures in Los Angeles and Ventura counties and killed three people, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Demolished: ‘What’s left of my house as of this morning. Demo time,’ the star captioned a post on Instagram
