Camille Grammer had a "radical hysterectomy" after being diagnosed with endometrial cancer, her rep said.

Former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Camille Grammer "underwent a radical hysterectomy" Friday, Howard Bragman, her representative, toldĀ People magazine.

Bragman said that the 45-year-old reality personality had been diagnosed with early stage endometrial cancer. According to the Mayo Clinic, endometrial cancer begins in the uterus, and when discovered early, is often cured by removing the reproductive organ.

Grammer's "surgery went well and she is expected to make a complete recovery following a significant recuperation period," Bragman said.

The former model starred on Bravo's hit series "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" in the first two seasons, and appeared in several episodes of season three.

She was married to "Cheers" and "Frasier" star Kelsey Grammer for 14 years. The former couple have two children together via surrogate.

Just days ago, she tweeted in anticipation of the new season of "RHOBH," which premieres Nov. 4 on Bravo.
