The Ballad of Kelsey & Camille Continues


When last we left award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer and his estranged pampered reality star wife Camille Grammer, the pair was knee-deep in the degree of divorce ugliness that can only be created in Hollywood. Family attorneys in Pasadena as well as gossip columnists have watched the pair lob barbs at one another, make red carpet snubs and generally act like a couple of babies. The latest chapter of the saga includes a shocking confession by Lady Camille - while Frasier himself makes a wish for the seemingly impossible.

Followers of the Grammer storyline can attest to the fact that Camille has little or no problem running her mouth about the divorce. So it was of little surprise when the Bravo star opened up about Kelsey to Extra TV right before the holidays.

"We've been together 14 years; I thought we had a really good run of it. I still love my husband, my soon-to-be ex-husband," she told the show. She also expressed that the holiday season was particularly difficult since her husband has already moved on. "He's in love; he's getting married, so I don't think there's any reconciliation. Someone gets engaged and tells you he's going to get married in January and we're still legally married. . . . It's not easy."

Over at Camp Trade-a-Blonde-In, Kelsey Grammer has apparently asked a judge for something Santa didn't bring him: a quickie divorce. Kelsey is asking the court to grant the divorce decree immediately and leave the money issues to be settled later. This "bifurcation," as it's known in legal-land, essentially would postpone the haggling over the Grammers' mass belongings and financial assets so that the divorce could be finalized. Under California law, divorce can be final 6 months after a petition is filed; Camille filed on July 1, 2010, meaning that Kelsey and new girlfriend Kayte Walsh could get married as soon as January, 1 2011, if the judge grants the bifurcation.

Naturally, Camille isn't thrilled and many expect she'll do what she can to rain on Kelsey's wedding day. A friend of hers told TMZ that Camille "is not surprised but continues to be disappointed at Kelsey's immature and disrespectful behavior."

As sure as you can bet on Camille saying something utterly ridiculous on the next episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you can bet that we haven't heard the last of the divorce drama from these two.
