Kelsey Grammer may already be engaged to another woman, but his ex-wife Camille isn’t heading in the same direction anytime soon.

“I don’t think she’s ready to start dating again,” Camille’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costar Taylor Armstrong told PEOPLE at a holiday bash for her daughter at Sweet E’s Bakeshop in Los Angeles. “She needs a little more time.”

Armstrong, whose daughter Kennedy is 4, says Camille’s priority in the wake of her divorce is her own children. “Right now, Camille just wants to spend time with her kids. Dating would take her away from them, and I don’t think she’s ready for that.”

Even as a single mom of two to daughter Mason and son Jude, Camille, 42, is holding herself together, according to Armstrong.

“She’s a very strong woman and she’s going to be fine,” she says. “She’s doing a fantastic job of managing everything, and she’s surrounded by people who care about her.”

And based on Armstrong’s supportive words, it seems some of those people are their Real Housewives costars.

“All of these women are strong, they all have causes they care about, they’re really good mothers, and I respect each and every one of them,” Armstrong says of the cast. “We have our differences, but at the end of the day, these are all beautiful women, and I hope that we can just stick together.”
