Grammer tells TooFab there's a secret "backstory" behind how medium Allison DuBois behaved that fateful night.

Camille Grammer can finally have a laugh about one of the most infamous "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" moments ever.

Way back in Season 1, fans were treated to what would later be dubbed "The Dinner Party from Hell," which Grammer hosted with friend/medium Allison DuBois. That turned out to be a terrible idea, as the electronic-cigarette-smoking psychic memorbaly told Kyle Richards that her husband, Mauricio Umansky, would never emotionally fulfill her. "Know that."

It was easily one of the most cringe-worthy episodes in all of Bravo history.

But Camille told TooFab in a recent interview that the once sensitive situation is now laughable among the ladies.

"It's something I can joke about," she said. "I watch the show from a different perspective, and I go, 'Wow, that was a really good episode.' Not necessarily what I said or what Allison said, but just watching the show with my producer's cap on. The way it played out, it brought drama, it brought conflict. It was good."

And contrary to what viewers at home might have thought, Camille said neither she nor Bravo producers orchestrated the sprinklers outside her home going go off the moment the women all left in a huff.

"There were things that were organically happening that were just so real in the moment," she explained. "I mean, the sprinklers turned on when these ladies left my house, and they were like, 'Did Allison plan that?' We couldn't have planned that. It made for fantastic television. And Allison -- as a character, who she is -- she makes for really good TV. She just was explosive. It was like lighting in a bottle."

Camille said Allison received swift backlash from the episode, which she felt Allison blamed on her. The women are no longer close.

"I think she blames me for that," Camille said. "She had a lot of fallout from that [episode], and I did feel bad. A lot of fallout, unfortunately. She reached out to Kelsey, like, 'Kelsey please help me.' She reached out to me, like, 'Is there something you can do?' Andy [Cohen] reached out to her and said, 'Please come on the show and explain your side,' and she should have."

"She did herself a great disservice by not going on the show to explain what had happened that night because there's stuff that goes on that doesn't air," Camille added. "There's some backstory there that she could've explained, her behavior, because the girls weren't being nice to her at all."

Allison denied TooFab's request for comment, but you can relive the uncomfortable dinner party in the video below.
