'RHOBH' star Camille Grammer opens up about new cancer diagnosis (Exclusive)

Camille Grammer is taking it day by day.

ET's Brice Sander caught up with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star at the reality show's premiere party in Los Angeles on Friday, where she opened up about her recent cancer diagnosis.

"I'm doing well, I'm healing. In some pain and discomfort this evening, but I'm here," Grammer told ET. "I'm here to promote the show and support it."

On Thursday, the 49-year-old reality star revealed that she had been diagnosed with a second type of cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, which was luckily discovered early and removed.

"We are cancer free," she shared. "Well, we are in remission. I have to wait a week or two for my pathology reports to come back. But as far as I know, the doctor said that she removed everything that she found."

Grammer was also diagnosed with stage two endometrial cancer in 2013 and underwent a hysterectomy a year later.

Now, she's thankful to be in remission and is also celebrating her recent engagement. Grammer got engaged to lawyer David C. Meyer in October and showed off her new bling on the red carpet.

When asked how she knew he was the one, she replied, "Because I got butterflies again."

"He made me smile, he's smart, we're contemporaries, we understand each other," she gushed. "I'm very impressed with who he is as a person. I admire him and I think the feeling is mutual."

Grammer was previously married to Frasier star Kelsey Grammer from 1997 until 2011 -- though she revealed that getting married again does scare her.

"Of course it does, how could it not?" she expressed. "My first go at it didn't turn out that well. But you know what, I believe in love and I like having a lifetime partner. I like the thought of growing old with someone."

As far as wedding planning goes, Grammer said that they've "started, but we're going away together this Christmas and we're going to talk more."

"My maid of honor is going to be away with us, so I'll see her [and get] all the details down," she shared.

Meanwhile, Grammer is back for the eighth season of RHOBH, which premieres on Dec. 19. When asked why she decided to return to the show she said that it was "the right time" and, with her involvement with the Foundation for Women's Cancer, hopes to raise awareness for cancer.

"I'm using this platform for good," she explained, stressing the importance of men and women to get checked.

"Knowledge is key, and awareness is key, and that's what I'm doing," she continued. "I'm obviously very passionate about this. I've had my second below the belt cancer and my mom is fighting her third cancer, so I grew up with this. Watching my grandmother go through cancer and fight it, and watching my mom and self. So, again, I am very passionate about this cause, giving back and raising awareness."

Season eight of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills premieres Tuesday, Dec. 19 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
