Camille Grammer: Kelsey Grammer Won't Let Our Kids Say My Name In His House (VIDEO)

It's the divorce war that never seems to end.

In a new interview with Anderson Cooper and FOX's “Good Day New York” co-anchor Rosanna Scotto, Camille Grammer, 44, opens up about her life after splitting with Kelsey Grammer -- and how it's not easy co-parenting their children Mason, 11, and Jude, 8.

"It's very difficult to co-parent with somebody that won't speak to you, text you or email you," Camille reveals on "Anderson Live" Dec. 11. "I've reached out to him. I think it's very important to be amicable to raise children, and he refuses to. There's just so much I can do at this point."

When Cooper asks how they communicate, Camille explains, "It's usually through lawyers. So, we are spending a fortune just to try to co-parent, which is ridiculous."

And aside from their communication issues, Camille reveals that Kelsey, 57, won't allow Mason or Jude to say her name when they're in his home -- which he shares with now wife Katye Walsh and their baby daughter, Faith.

"They're not allowed to say my name in the house," the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star ays. "These poor kids, my daughter and my son, can't say my name in their father's house."

"I think they can say 'Mom' or 'The other household,' " she continues. "But they can't say my name. They can't say 'Camille.'"

Plus, what makes all of this more difficult is the fact that Camille and Kelsey aren't legally divorced yet.

"Release me! Set me free! You're married; you have a child," Camille confesses, adding that they have never signed official papers. "We are going to meet before a judge again very soon, so hopefully this time it will be over."
