Camille Grammer: Time (and Lots of Sex!) Will Help Adrienne Maloof
by Raha Lewis and Tim NuddCamille Grammer has been through the kind of hellish time that Adrienne Maloof is experiencing these days. But it's nothing a little time and a new man can't fix, Grammer says.
"She is staying strong. It's a very difficult time for her. A public divorce on a reality show – it was impossible for me, so I empathize with her," Grammer, 44, told PEOPLE Monday at TV Guide's annual Hot List Party in West Hollywood.
Maloof, 51, and Dr. Paul Nassif just reached a divorce settlement. And Grammer says she has been in touch with her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar to talk girlfriend to girlfriend.
"She'll get by. It just takes a while," says Grammer.
What's the secret to getting through it? New love – and lots of sex, she says.
"A man helps, you know," she says. "Sexual healing helps."
The more of it, the better, in fact. "At our age, I can't believe it," says Grammer, whose romance with Dimitri Charalambopoulos will be featured on the Bravo show. "It's like three times a day, and I am like, 'Oh my God.' It's a great workout. The first year it was three times a day. It was insane."
She adds: "Who doesn't love a great partner in bed? I mean, come on. Especially after a bad divorce."
