Kelsey Grammer tells People he’s getting married ASAP


Yesterday we heard that Kelsey Grammer was gunning for a quickie divorce from his estranged wife, Camille, that would allow him to quickly remarry his 26 year younger fiance, Kayte Walsh. The story was that Kelsey was trying to make the split final to marry Kayte ASAP and then deal with splitting his considerable assets with Camille later.

Kelsey has issued a statement about the matter to People Magazine, and he basically confirms this news, saying that he’s marrying for love. You know he’s doing this to really stick it to Camille too.

Of course Kelsey Grammer is anxious to get married: That’s because he’s deeply in love with his fiancée Kayte Walsh.

The actor has confirmed an impending wedding while also responding to a barrage of reports about him and Walsh, including that he’s pushing for a quick divorce from his wife, Camille Grammer, 42, so that he can marry Walsh, 29, as soon as possible.

“Kayte and I are marrying because we are engaged, and we are engaged because we are in love and see no reason to postpone our happiness any longer,” the actor tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Grammer does not say when the nuptials will happen, but adds: “We are planning something we wish to be a private affair among several of our friends. Anything else is conjecture and false. Kayte and I are the only reliable source for this story. End of story.”

Grammer has two kids with Camille, daughter Mason, 8, and Jude, 6. He also has two older daughters, Spencer, 27, and Greer, 18, from previous relationships.

[From People]

They’re getting married because they don’t want to “postpone happiness,” as if getting married was the only route to happiness. I get the feeling that Kelsey wants to get the hell out of his marriage and that attaching himself to a young chick is the only way he feels that’s possible. This kind of makes it clear to me how Kelsey ended up with a wretched person like Camille. He may seem like he’s taking the high road, especially compared to Camille, but this move shows he’s just as petty as she is.

Camille recently told Extra that Kelsey was away from her and the kids before Christmas and that she was crying decorating the tree without him. “Kelsey enjoyed decorating the tree and that’s something we all did as a family, and so last night I was decorating the tree with the kids alone and it brought a tear to my eye, or several. It’s definitely not easy. But you know, time to make new traditions.” Camille also claims that Kelsey told her their kids, daughter Mason, 9, and son Jude, 6, would “get over it” once they realized he wasn’t coming back. I’m wondering whether Kelsey saw his youngest kids on Christmas or not. The fact that he didn’t even bother to mention them in his statement at all makes me think that he didn’t.

    Put the Beverly Hills hair and makeup on that chick and she looks like a little Camille Jr.

  2. DrM says:

    Camille is a bit of a head case…it will not be easy for KG to see his kids, phone his kids, be in his kids lives with her craziness going on…

  3. Ari says:

    She’s preggers, for sure.

  4. mslewis says:

    Of course he didn’t see his little kids at Christmas. He was too busy with his “new love” KayTe!!! The man is a monster . . . a really stupid monster! He ignored his two older daughters when he married Camille and now he is ignoring his two younger kids. I don’t understand how people can put all this on Camille. Kelsey is acting like a teenage boy with a new girlfriend he just cannot get enough of. He’s so “in love” he wants to get re-married immediately, probably again without a pre-nup. The fool deserves to go broke!!

    I hope the judge says no to his request and makes him spend months sorting out his assets and I hope Camille gets everything she’s entitled to!! What a piece of sh!t this man is!!!

  5. krissy_kitty says:

    I really feel for their kids.. It appears they have 2 parents that are selfish and only care about their own needs.. It is really sad. 🙁

  6. Nahlei says:

    #4 you sound like camile or one of her paid friends. She deserves shit.

  7. theresa says:

    He’s nuts and makes horrible decisions, but after getting a look at that viper Camille on RHoBH, I would give all of my assts to get rid of her asap. He is a vulernable person, for many reasons, and I think that Camille exploited every vulnerability that he had to keep him tied to her for so long. The new one will probably do the same. The kids are the helpless victims.

  8. Stronzilla says:

    Of course he wants to marry her ASAP before she figures out he’s an ASS. Getting her pregnant was a classic narcissist move to entrap her, in his case a captive audience, and now that she no longer is he wants to hurry up and marry her before she comes to her senses and realizes what a jerk he really is, especially once she witnesses his behavior during the financial settlement aspect of the divorce. It will be nothing short of psychological terrorism.

  9. guesty says:

    he’s a whack-a-doo. time to trade in what is it…wifey #3…for a much younger version.

    good luck with that one kayte with a y. so ridic.

  10. mln76 says:

    I’ve ended up feeling really sorry for him obviously he has no communication skills (or else he would have ended it with that witch a long time ago) and can’t be alone. I think he has been looking for a way out of his marraige for a while now but he very well could be walking into another bad situation. The real victims are the kids.

  11. Sunnyjyl says:

    I don’t know what to think of Kelsey. Love him as an actor, but everything I’ve read about his personal life has been pretty icky.
    People who don’t make their kids their priority make me sick. There, I just figured out what to think of him.

  12. lisa says:

    I don’t know why people go on and on about how one parent is not with the kids at Christmas. Thus is life. Sad but it is a fact of divorce or separated parents. My brother lives in a different city than his daughter. He gets every other Christmas. This was not his Christmas year and he will have her in the Summer. He called her on the phone and talked about her presents that were shipped to her. Lots of over the phone hugs/kisses. So the fact that he was not with them does not make him a bad father. Sometime avoiding the screaming and yelling is better. Did Camille really think he was going to show up and decorate the tree with her. NOPE. Maybe he had a tree at his house and will get the kids after Christmas.. who knows. Maybe he is choosing not to use the children in this crazy circus.. again who knows. But the thing I do know is Camille is a piece of work and this is going to get ugly. I like how she ALWAYS calls him Her Husband.. LOL

    yeah.. she will not be going away quietly.

  13. Lila says:

    So either dude is severely codependent or something else is going on. I don’t mind that he didn’t drag his kids out publicly. The less said about them, the better, imo. Keep their names out of the fray.

    It’s obvious to me that Kelsey puts his relationships over his fortune. That’s admirable in a sad, naive way.

  14. Po says:

    Lisa, I hadn’t noticed that she’s still calling him her husband, that’s a bad sign. I also don’t think him not spending x-mas day with his kids is such a big deal but Kelsey doesn’t seem like the type, just from his actions, that cares too much about what holidays he spends with his kids. At the same time I don’t think Camille would want the kids at x-mas either if she weren’t trying to make a point. I just don’t think there will be any fights over custody or where the kids should spend much of their time. These two seem like they have different priorities than the average divorcing couples.

  15. Marjalane says:

    Am I the only one who thinks this new piece is kind of skanky looking? She reminds me of that icky Vienna from the Bachelor; kind of trailery covered in sparkly clothes. It’ll be interesting to watch and see if she re-does herself with Kelsey’s money. It was a stroke of genius to get Camille on RHOBH- there’s nothing that broad can do to regain any sympathy after that exposure. She is evil.

  16. Whatever says:

    This confirms everything I said about Kelsey yesterday. He is a complete piece of shit, a horrible father and a narcissistic asshole. I’m done with him. I won’t even watch a Frasier rerun after this, much less anything else he ever does. F-ck you Kelsey. I HATE parents who put themselves above their children. They’ll ‘get over it’?? Really Kelsey? They are SIX and EIGHT years old. He is disgusting. I no longer care how bad Camille is; I hope she takes him for every dime now. He deserves it for blowing off his kids and not having the decency to get them through this difficult time. Kelsey only cares about Kelsey. Parents like him infuriate me. Any woman who has children with a man who shows no feeling and does not care for his existing kids properly is a complete moron and gets what she deserves.

    I don’t get the comments that it is “no big deal” that he didn’t bother to see his kids for Christmas. He blew them off on Thanksgiving too. Why the love for a worthless piece of crap and deadbeat dad? Don’t get it, nor do I want do understand that line of thinking.

    I wish them all the misery in the universe.

  17. lisa says:


    OH yeah listen to some of the interviews she has done. She talks about the fact that “her husband” does not want to talk to her in person. that he only wants to do so through the lawyers. That is a bit freaky to me.

    regarding supporting Kelsey.. I’m NOT..just saying not being with your kids on Christmas or Holidays does not make you a bad parent.. Insensitive and a jerk. YEAH. but with all things one day these children will be adults and they will let him and Camille know what kind of parents they were.

  18. WhiteNoise says:

    I liked him best with Lilith.

  19. Az says:

    You know what would be a great new tradition, Camille? Stop being such an awful human being.

  20. Jayna says:

    Kelsey had that heart attack or problem last year. Probably rethought his life and living with the nasty pretentious piece of work Camille and met this sweet, fresh, unpretentious young woman and thought whatever time I have left on this earth I want happiness. Go for it, Kelsey.

  21. cici says:

    i totally agree, jayna! he couldn’t have been happy with that awful woman Camille. no one knows WHAT is going on with his relationship with his children. i do know that you don’t hear his grown children coming forward with stories of strained relationships the way you do with Angie Jo, though.

  22. janie says:

    how does the saying go…god makes them and they find each other. 4 nannies and several marriages, they deserved each other.
    poor kids, they are cute.

  23. H26 says:

    I agree with Whatever, Kelsey makes me sick. He is not just walking away from her, he is walking away from his kids. He blew off Thanksgiving with his kids to show his new tricks parents around, that is a pretty lame reason to blow off your kids. I don’t like Camille at all but I think he si worse.

  24. the original bellaluna says:

    They’re both assholes. I doubt either of them put the children first, so they shouldn’t have bothered themselves with having children.

    Right, like Camille decorates for the Holidays. She probably hired out the job, like she does with nannies. And can she even cry; like, form actual tears, with all that Botox & plastic surgery? (Not a cruel comment, but an actual question.)

    As to the Holidays – Divorced/separated parents deal with not having their children on Holidays all the time. One year I have them on New Year’s, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, and Christmas or Christmas Eve (or any combination thereof – we sort it out accordingly). The next year, we rotate. We divide Memorial Days, Labour Days, and I get them for Mothers’ Day while he gets them for Fathers’ Day.

    Ideal? No. Realistic? Yes. Unfortunately.

  25. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    @DrM…. I agree, bet she will make it all very difficult for him to see or contact the kids.

    If I am not mistaken, awhile back she released a story that he didnt call the kids or something but he said he did??? I cant remember the specifics.

    She acts like a looney witch to me.

  26. bizzy says:

    They’re getting married because they don’t want to “postpone happiness,”

    possibly she won’t do anal ’til she gets a wedding ring?

  27. Crash2GO2 says:

    Why? How absolutely neurotic is he, that he simply cannot stand to be alone for even one millisecond. And he is actually not even alone, but he needs confirmation in a marriage certificate! “There! See there? I am NOT ALONE.”

    A man who cannot stand to be alone with himself is a very scary proposition indeed.

    EDIT: LOL @ Whitenoise!!

  28. Kim says:

    Call me old fashioned but I have a problem with a married man proposing marriage to another woman.

  29. bizzy says:

    @Kim: I have a problem with a married man proposing marriage to another woman.

    well, they say it’s easier to find a job if you already have a job …

  30. Roxanne75 says:

    anyone else see a pattern here??

  31. MsDeb says:

    I am divorced from a dentist. We chose to create what we called our “dysfunctional family” and spent holidays together. The children knew that Daddy was dating, but that they were first in his heart. We took vacations together. I would come home from work (college math professor) and find dinner cooking on the stove, the washer running and the children doing their homework. We all knew that the weekends belonged to him. As a result, my children never acted out, grades never dropped, and they love their father. It was very painful for me, but I put the children’s needs first. Today, my son is an attorney, and my daughter has her Ph.d. in Psychology. We have three grandchildren and we all celebrate holidays together. We have both remarried to wonderful people, who join in, and are bonafide members of this “dysfunctional” family. My advice to women, swallow your pain, if you can, and put your children first. My advice to men, put your children first, and don’t introduce your children to others until you know this is a permanent relationship (as permanent as can be these days). This worked for us, may not work for others. We had know each other from the age of thirteen, and remain friends. Hard work in the beginning, but the results are worth it. We still love each other, but as family members. Just my opinion. Can’t stress enough put your children’s needs before your own. Put your hurt in your pocket, and do what is best for all. Your reward is happy, healty, reasonably well-adjusted children. As for Camille, at first, so sorry for her, but as time went on, grew to feel frightened for her chldren. She is sure to use them as pawns. No child should ever be a bargaining chip. As of Kelsey, agree with the writer that in his warped mind, maybe only way to escape Camille. After all, how many times would you have dinner with that psychic? Happy New Year to all!

  32. says:

    I feel so bad for these children-they are true pawns in these narcissistic pieces o.s.’s lives. What is wrong with them? Who can, as a parent, cause their children pain in front of the whole world, just to hurt their ex-spouse is vile and despicable.

  33. jzhz says:

    His current wife is horrible, but I think it says a lot about him that he married her. No matter how bad things get at home, you can always get divorced before you start f’ing someone else. Especially someone who is so young. Ugh.

    I do kind of secretly love that the next wife is plumper than Camille. That must really annoy Camille, since she thinks she’s so gorgeous.

  34. T. says:

    Just wondering here. Why does Wikipedia list her birth year as 1963? She claims that she is just 42. Wiki could be wrong, however, we could be dealing with a case of Chelsea H. being only ’35’! Hmmm.

  35. OfficialBitch says:

    Kayte looks rather…large.
    Maybe he got sick of 50 year old bag o bones Camille and decides to bang a few fatties to get over it all

  36. OfficialBitch says:

    By the way…UK papers list the RHOBH ages CORRECTLY.
    Camille is 48 early next year.

  37. lucy2 says:

    I think he’d be much better off investing in a LOT of serious psychological therapy, rather than in yet another marriage/divorce/alimony/child support cycle.

  38. Whatever says:

    Seriously, he needs to have his head examined. I just read that he isn’t making Kayte sign a prenup either. Some people will never learn. Fourth marriage and no prenup again. Oh well, he’ll have 50 mil after Camille is done with him and after Kayte leaves his ass, he’ll still have 25 to live on. With his horrible track record in relationships, I can’t believe he is jumping in to make the same mistake a fourth time. What a tool! Obviously, playing a genius on TV was just an act.

  39. Kiska says:

    @ MsDeb Words of wisdom. Thanks for sharing. I totally agree with you!

  40. Maud says:

    I don’t have a problem with Kelsey but Kayte needs to dispense with her wretched British fashion sense….she’s in America now!

  41. LT says:

    Shit, like Camille has the ability to cry. She’s botoxed those tears right out of there.

  42. Annabelle says:

    umm hello.

    nobody knows for sure if he actually said “they’ll get over it” about his kids. Camille said that he said that, right? Well Camille is a proven liar, so why do u believe what she says? #16 don’t get your knickers in a knot honey.
