Kelsey Grammer Has Little to Cheers About
Since filing for divorce on July 1, 2010, due to “irreconcilable differences”, Camille Grammer has continued to release personal details of incidents leading up to the split between herself and now ex-husband, Kelsey Grammer. Despite self descriptions as a “very private person,” Camille has voluntarily discussed the divorce, telling People that the process is “cathartic.” It may also boost TV ratings. Who would have guessed? After seeing ten seconds of Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ it blows my mind that the woman can still frown. Her surgeon must be proud.
But seriously, what was Kelsey Grammer thinking? Not only does he stand to lose nearly half of his earnings for the past fourteen years, his kids and his dignity, but he has also definitely traded down. No doubt. I admit I’m a fan of the au naturale style, but within limits. Kayte Walsh, 29, the new “blonde bombshell,” has nothing on Kelsey’s old lady. Nada. Reports of Kelsey’s drug and alcohol addiction resurgence need no corroboration. The man must be drunk.
The Los Angeles Superior Court judge must decide several tough issues as the couple is pitted squarely against each other. Both Camille and Kelsey have filed for custody of their children, Mason, 9, and Jude, 6, with Camille asking for primary physical custody. Camille also seeks half of Kelsey’s earnings for the duration of their marriage, invoking California’s community property law and begging the question: Where’s the pre-nup? The answer: There is none. Yikes.
The misstep has forced Kelsey to petition the judge for acknowledgement of his sole financial interest in the television series, “Frasier.” Luckily, the ex-Frasier star won’t have to spend time and money proving his lack of fault in the separation. By citing “irreconcilable differences,” the split is considered a “no-fault divorce” under California law. Phew. It would have been hard to explain away allegations that Camille was forced to take a role on Real Housewives to allow for more time with the mistress. Knowingly concealing that he had contracted herpes might have been an easier sell though, because, you know, it’s really just a step up from HPV. And everyone has HPV…Right?
