Camille Grammer gets $30 million in her divorce: too much or suck it, Kelsey?

The numbers are in, and I’m surprised because I thought this divorce was settled eons ago. Apparently Kelsey Grammer got a quickie divorce from Camille so he could marry his jumpoff, whom is better than all of his other wives and baby mamas in every way according to him, and then put off dealing with the financials. It was a “bifurcated” divorce in that they were granted a divorce in February, 2011 but the money part hadn’t been figured out yet. Well the second part, the money, has been settled and Camille is a freaking wealthy woman. She got powerball-level money, and she’s selling her huge money sucking mansion so she should be able to comfortably live off this settlement for several lifetimes. I would say she didn’t deserve that much, and she still pretty much doesn’t, but Kelsey is being a vindictive ass lately so… work it Camille. Get your cash. Here’s TMZ’s report:

Camille Grammer will get roughly $30 million in her divorce from Kelsey Grammer — and if we can say … she deserves it.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ … Camille and Kelsey are “very close” to inking a property settlement agreement. We’re told the total value of the assets in the marriage is around $60 million. We say “around” because a big chunk is the 3 homes they own which are now on the market. They’re estimating when everything is sold the pot will be around $60 mil.

Sources tell us Camille will get a straight 50% of the assets. Here’s why she deserves it. We’re told when the couple married, Kelsey was broke. Pretty shocking, considering he had earned “Cheers” and “Frasier” money. But bad decisions and a drug problem nearly sent Kelsey to the poor house.

We’re told Camille righted the ship and managed the money to where they now have tens of millions to split.

That’s a lot of tossed salad and scrambled eggs.

[From TMZ]

When I first read “tossed salads” in that TMZ story… well we know that Kelsey is “very sexually adventurous” according to him, but that’s a reference to the intro song for “Frasier” and Kelsey didn’t dictate the lyrics or anything so we can take the tossed salad reference at face value. I just got skeeved out thinking about it.

This massive settlement may not be to Camille’s liking. Reports around December, 2010 claimed that Kelsey offered her a $30 million settlement at that time but that she was holding out for $50 million. Kelsey and Camille had no prenup, and Kelsey doesn’t have a prenup with young Kayte, either. Kelsey better hope the fourth time is the charm or he’ll be splitting that leftover $30 million with Kayte. My heart bleeds for him.

Camille is shown on 7-21-12 (blue dress) and with her boyfriend, Dimitri Charalambopoulos, on 5-14-12 and 5-18-12. Kelsey and Kayte are shown on 1-15-12. Credit:

    Suck it Kelsey!

    • dude johnson says:

      Too much for only a few years of matrimony

      • Stacey says:

        They were married for 14 years. He was broke when they married. She has supported him thru cocaine and alcohol abuse. Also his heart attack that almost took his life. Not to mention she is the mother of two of his children.

      • ol cranky says:

        apparently he was broke form drugs and bad decisions when they met and married and she played a part in helping him get his act together and amassing/managing his fortune. I think she’s a waste of a human being but I’d say she earned her keep dealing with his douchebaggery

      • Ally8 says:

        She supported him through his highest-earning Frasier years. This is totally what divorce settlements are about — recognizing one spouse’s input in the other’s career through moral and logistical support.

        She is nonetheless a jerk, but she supported her jerk of a husband when he earned most of his money. By contrast, look at Charlie Sheen’s success at managing his substance abuse and career without a significant other. (Not that it’s the significant other’s responsibility, blah blah, just an example of a similar situation not working out.)

    • Mia says:

      I was watching Real Houswives when she was with him. When he was in NY and obviously had no interest in her, it was painful. The way he did her was so dirty.
      I didn’t like her that season. After that season when they were seperated, it’s like she was humbled.
      She earned every penny of that money!

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Not inconsistent with other Hollywood settlements we’ve seen. Kelsey, of all people, should know to sign a pre-nup, but I guess he didn’t have much to worry about in terms of assets when he and Camille married.
      $5M alone for his douchebaggery!!

  2. tru tru says:

    her young man, if he plays his cards right, is in a good position.


    hopefully she puts some of that up for the kids–30 mil at how she is accustomed to money may not last that long, unless she downsizes EVERYTHING.

    • anne says:

      haha,maintaining her plastic bodywill be costly. But I say Suck it Kelsey!

    • Jill says:

      Agree completely with tru tru.

      My first thought when I read the headline was: “She’ll blow through that relatively fast.”

      She blows everything else. I’m kidding! Seriously!

  3. Eleonor says:

    I think Camille is a bitch, Kelsey too, and they were a well matched couple. BTW Camille helped Kelsey in staying sober, and we have to give her credit for this.
    Kelsey is acting like an A+ a– get that money Camille!

    • YuYa says:

      Nobody keeps an alcoholic sober but themselves. He may credit her for being there, but, he is the only one keeping himself sober. Alcoholics have to want it themselves, no one can force them, or influence them. It’s on them alone.

      It might have been the one time he wasn’t being an asshole though.

      BTW, his sky waitress looks exactly like Camilla, but 20 years younger. Kelsey is a dry drunk, someone who doesn’t drink, but still has the behaviors of an active alcoholic. I guarantee new chick is not going to have an easy ride, but, she wanted what his money and fame can give her.

  4. ladybert62 says:

    He was broke and had a drug problem when he met and married the one he just divorced? I didnt know that. After Cheers and Frasier how in the world could he be broke!

    In his personal life, he seems so disgusting to me – while as an actor, he is excellent. Strange.

    • Anonymei says:

      i think the broke claims are BS from Camille’s camp. It would be near impossible to run through that money on coke and live to tell. She did help keep him sober but she is not responsible for his financial success. They are two awful people who deserved each other. She makes fun of his sexual performance on camera and he returns the favor on Oprah. Just cause he is better at it doesn’t make him any worse than her.

      • Jayna says:

        Bingo. We have a winner. She always tries to take credit for his success. Frazier and Cheers made him wealthy. His talent made him wealthy. I’m sure he has great financial planners, etc., that helped his fortune to grow. The woman couldn’t even pronounce the big words she tried to use in the wrong context right. They’re both shady, shallow people. I’m sure she helped him with his drug problem, but if not her, the next bimbo on his arm would have, just like the one before him was helping him. Kelsey was ready to change. But she was married to him for a long time and deserves half of their money acquired during that time.

      • Kim says:

        He was broke after Cheers.He got with Camille around the time he started Frasier.

      • ShugAveryPee says:

        It is not hard to believe he was broke…. You would be surprised how easy it is to blow through that much money when you are on cocaine.. which is an EXPENSIVE habit… And you think a coke head is concerned about their money and well being?? All a coke head see’s is that white powder… period… Whitney Houston signed a $100 million dollar deal with Arista some years ago and died almost broke… Your business managers only advise you .. it is your money and you can spend it like water if you want … they can not stop you only advise!!! There are alot of stars that go broke after making TONS of dough!!! You have to think how they spend in their terms not in regular everyday people… and Camille did not leak that story …

  5. Pont Neuf says:

    He can more than suck it.

    If he managed to squander the huge fortune the he earned in the 80′s and 90′s, and it’s only thanks to Camille’s good sense that he has anything at all, the fair thing is for her to receive half of everything. Especially if we have in count that he cheated and then dumped her as soon as he found a younger replacement.

    She isn’t exactly an angel, but he is just sleazy (not to mention, ungrateful). Team Camille 100%.

    • MaiGirl says:

      ITA. Also, Kelsey clearly has a problem with women. Everything about his sleazy words and actions from the moment he chose Camille proves that he needs a little therapy to deal with his issues. He would be attracting NO ONE without his money. And this Kayte chick….her turn is coming!

  6. muffin says:

    TOO MUCH for that hideous woman.

  7. Ruffian9 says:

    Given his recent interviews, I’m gonna go with ‘suck it Kelsey!’

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      I say suck it up, too….anyone notice her eyes aren’t the same size?

      • GoGoGrammy says:

        Yes…I did instantly..and I’ve never noticed it before now. Even in that one older shot of her…her eyes look relatively close in size. Must be a mess up in the plastic surgeon’s office. I like her. I don’t like him personally…but he is excellent in his new Starz show BOSS. Lets hope they are both happier now. Life is too short.

      • sunshine says:

        Haha I came here just to say “My God what is wrong with those EYES??” Scary!!

        And I don’t like Kelsey much as a person although I love Frasier and Sideshow Bob but I like her even less. She just has that look, you know what I mean? Never watched Real Housewives so I know nothing about her but she looks like the type to be a real vicious snake and a backstabber. I wouldn’t want her around my man either!

  8. littlestar says:

    He can suck it! Camille might be a bag, but he has been acting like a disgusting pig the past couple of years.

  9. Jules says:

    Good for her. He is such a douche.

  10. Kiyoshigirl says:

    I hope she turns the 30M into 60M.

  11. Mirella says:

    Suck it, Kelsey!

  12. Onyx XV says:

    I’m no fan of her plastic ass, but oh yes – Suck It, Kelsey!!

  13. mln89 says:

    it sounds like she earned every cent of that money, by making the smart financial decisions he obviously wasn’t capable of making and putting up with that piece of crap husband for over a decade. his behavior with kayte was beyond disgusting and disrespectful to the mother of his children. i’m glad she took him to the cleaners and got what was hers: HALF!

  14. MSL says:

    He can suck it!

  15. marie says:

    ok.. I know I said in one of the other posts that I like when a guy rocks curly hair, but I’m gonna have to take that back due to the corkscrew dork..

    Also, if he gained that money while he was with her, then he can SUCK IT cause it’s hers whether she deserves it or not (if he was that big a drug addict then she deserves it) I still like Kelsey though..

  16. lucy2 says:

    I’m reading a book about NBC in the 80s/90s, and he sounded like an absolute disaster. If she helped him turn it around financially, she certainly deserves her half.
    They both seem awful though, and he’s so freaking stupid about money/marriage/prenup.

  17. stinky says:

    time for a little fraxel lasering, no?

  18. Violet says:

    Suck it, Kelsey!

  19. abby says:

    he’s a jerk but she didn’t EARN any of that just for marrying a jerk…she knew that going in–she is as big of a gold digger as they come. It was unbearable to watch how self absorbed she was on housewives. The way and primp and prep and glorify herself for a red carpet event was outrageous! she thought SHE was the REAL star. now she’s just another overbotoxed bimbo who scored

    • Kat says:

      I totally agree. He’s a jerk, but she’s a scheming, vile gold digger. He sure knows how to pick ‘em. I hope wife #4 sticks.

  20. Sara says:

    Suck it!!! She is laughing all the way to the bank. Time for her to have some fun in life!

  21. wonderwoman21 says:

    Maybe I should marry and divorce Kelsey Grammar! I sure would like a yacht in the Mediterranean and a beach house in Tahiti. Oh yeah, and no more working for minimum wage!!

  22. Bailey says:

    SUCK IT KELSEY. Camille, laugh all the way to the bank.

  23. Bluedog says:

    Hmm, I guess everyone’s forgotten how awful Camille was on the first season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills before she got help from some image consultants and PR people.

    BOTH Kelsey and Camille are narcissistic asses but Kelsey, at least, is a good actor.

  24. Lacie says:

    Can I just say that I don’t watch any RH shows, and only know of this woman what I’ve read here or seen in clips, and she does seem just awful.

    That said, I know enough about Kelsey Grammer to confidently say that I would have only been happier if she bled that bastard dry.

    Team Suck It Kelsey. Team Suck It Kelsey Always and Forever in Every Single Instance.

  25. evyn says:

    She needs to stay away from the botox; her eye is “drooping.”

  26. Andrea says:

    I’m sorry but if he felt that way about ALL his other wives, he shouldn’t have had kids with them or said that now! I can’t imagine hearing that my father said that! His 4th wife will be tossed to the curb once he gets bored. mark my words. He’s an idiot for not getting a prenup and thus she got a right amount.

  27. Kosmos says:

    Ok, where do I start with Camille? Well, her over the top plastic surgery is the worst. She could have done with a lot less and would have looked so much better. I saw her on a talk show and she seems so fake, so is she really a b****? She’s just so unappealing to me, I guess. Right, I think both she and Kelsey were a bad match together. I have a feeling he may be a piece of work, too. It’s good the marriage is over, but Camille seems insecure with aging and in general.

  28. Kimble says:

    Her boyfriend is quite cute until I noticed … his ears! WTF?

    She deserves every penny of her 50% and I hope my judge feels the same way when it’s my turn in court!

  29. J O'C says:


  30. skuddles says:

    Considering Camille got his financial sh*t together, I’d say she deserves the 30 mil – suck it Kelsey!

    Can someone please tell me what “tossed salad” means (sexually speaking). I’ve heard that expression before but no clue what it means….

  31. Alana Fajina says:

    HAHA, suck it Kelsey you PIG!!! She should’ve gotten More!! lol

  32. Bengalcat2000 says:

    Rich people problems. This shit happens all the time w/o huge payouts. She seems like the most inauthentic person I’ve ever seen. She’s a fame whore with a whiny “poor me attitude.” Get over yourself Camille & go out into the real world where people don’t get paid huge amounts of money for being there for their spouses. And I still like Kelsey. He may be a putz but at least he worked for what he has.

  33. Mourning the Death of Music says:

    He can suck it and she better be very wise with her money.

  34. carol says:

    thank god for laser~

  35. TrustMeOnThis says:

    They are both gross.
    I would like to see more pix of that turquoise dress though! Love how they try to put hips on a stick with creative dart placement!

  36. She'saitch says:

    Karma is a beeyatch, Camille broke up his soon to be marriage to another women, she did a Angelina-Billybob Thorton-Laura Dern thingy. Kelsey was engaged, scheduled to be married in a few weeks,to another woman “Wikipedia “In 1994 he met 28-year-old Tammy Alexander, in Manhattan Beach, California. the two of them appeared on the cover of People magazine, announcing their engagement and Grammer’s substance abuse problems” Wikipedia”
    Well Tammy allegedly was in the hospital with him every day, one day she left to go home take care of a few things and called back to the hospital and Camille (who “allegedly” had been secretly on a few dates with Kelsey in NY, was “allegedly” hidden away in LA then went to the room when the fiancee was not in the hospital room, “allegedly” Camille picked up the phone when the fiancee called and told the girl, Kelsey was with HER now and the woman-fiancee needed to move her things out. The Fiancee was devastated. It was like a Billy-bob-Laura Dern Angelina thing where Angelina married him while he was engaged to Laura.

  37. GoGoGrammy says:

    Has anyone seen BOSS..Kelsey’s new mini series..and noticed his new wife in scenes twice now? I swear it’s her. I think she was referred to as WENDY by one of the other women in the scene. Somebody confirm or deny if its her?

  38. Lindy says:

    Eh, she’s a piece of work, but he’s an epic douchebag. He can suck it.

  39. Anotherview says:

    Kelsey ran through the money he made on Cheers and Fraiser by living an extravagant lifestyle while high on coke and making very poor investment decisions. Camille sobered him up and took charge of the investments primarily real estate and grew the money back.

    I may not like her but she is entitled to 50% of the income earned during the marriage.

  40. dorothy says:

    Anybody that can stay with Kelsey that long deserves that and more. Good luck new wife, your gonna need it.

  41. Daisy says:

    Definitely “Suckit, Kelsey, you hateful douche.”

  42. elsa says:

    Camille oozes Acid, she’s very cold and empty. No inner fiber to her and she’s only with that guy because she kept oogling over the brunette-housewives husband Marisio?, finally she went and found sme guy who looked like him, sort of. It’s a empty romance.
    Camille is rich, but her ego,pride was shattered when Kelsey left her for this woman Kayte. It’s funny because Katye looks like Camille pre-surgery, botox.

    Funny thing is no one in Hollywood will deal with Camille if she didn’t have money, she’s now doing the same thing Kelsey felt he had to do buying companionship, love. She’ll be a old botoxed rich Beverly Hills lady chasing boy toys or marrying goodlooking walkers, because her ego is s screwed up
    She ooozes acid, no one can love someone like that.

    If you want t see hw cold Camille is, look at the shw where her mother tells Camille she has Cancer and since Camille is in NYC and her mom in NJ her mom ask can Camille come see her. Camille tells her she doesn’t have time, that she’s got to go pick out dresses for some redcarpet event. In the episode Camille didn’t even cross the bridge or get a limo ride through the tunnel to go see her. It’s a hp skip and a jump frm NY to Jersey. She never went.

  43. Holden says:

    What’s wrong with her left eye?

  44. gator11 says:

    Kelsey has more than $60m in assets. She’s essentially getting one years’ pay from his Frasier days.
