I heard somebody today use the phrase "American Camilla". What are they talking about?

I can't be sure without a little context, but my guess is they were referring to Camill Parker-Bowles, married to Prince Charles of England.

This is what one of the links from a google search says. (search term: "America's Camilla")

Also, cause I'm a huge nerd (from Wikipedia) "The Camarilla is a fictional sect of vampires in Vampire: The Masquerade. The Camarilla are composed of seven clans, and are the largest organization of vampires, and possibly of any supernatural creatures, in the World of Darkness."

The context would be helpful but I would think that Camilla Parker-Bowles reference is right on and Callista Gingrich seems to fit the bill very well.

Was this perhaps in the context of vampire novels? If so, Carmilla is a French novel originally serialized in 1872 that partially inspired Bram Stoker's Dracula.

It's a total long-shot guess, but why not.
