The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
have not seen the last of Camille Grammer after all.
Despite reports in March
that the reality star, 43, would not return to Bravo series, Grammer says she's making appearances on camera – just not as frequently.
"I'm still working on the show," she told PEOPLE at Friday's 19th Annual Race to Erase MS in Los Angeles. "I show up once in a while as a guest appearance. I'm not sure what my title is at this point."
Now that she's "not so consumed with the show," Grammer says has more time to spend with the ones who matter most: her kids. (She also recently reached an amicable settlement
with ex-husband Kelsey Grammer in the custody case of their two children, Mason, 10, and Jude, 7.)
"It's much easier for me raising two kids as a single mom," she says. "I mean, I do have help, but it's just me and the kids a lot of the time. So, yes, the schedule is much more convenient and allows me to spend more time with them."
Not that she's taking time off. Grammer is currently working on a nutritional supplement line with boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos
, whom she stepped out with in October. (Her divorce from Kelsey Grammer was finalized in February
"I didn't expect the show to be as popular as it was," she says of her role on the series. "I didn't really watch the Housewives
shows. I should have done my research before I went on."
She adds: "But, you know what, I've enjoyed being part of the franchise. I've enjoyed watching the shows now. ... I've enjoyed the experience."
