Maloof, who starred in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alongside Grammer until the latter left after season two, settled her split from husband Paul Nassif earlier this month.
Grammer, who split from her husband Kelsey Grammer in 2010, has now revealed that she has been in touch with Maloof.
"She is staying strong," she told People. "It's a very difficult time for her. A public divorce on a reality show - it was impossible for me, so I empathise with her."
Grammer added: "She'll get by. It just takes a while."
Grammer also suggested that Maloof should move on from her ex-husband by finding a new lover, saying: "A man helps, you know. Sexual healing helps."
