Kelsey Grammer gave gift of reality show, fame to ex-wife Camille (Video)

Kelsey Grammer said he gave his ex-wife Camille one final “parting gift”: a reality show.

“It was my way of saying, 'Look, you always wanted to be famous. Here you go,’” the actor bluntly explained on “Piers Morgan Live.”

(Watch parts of the interview here.)

The then couple appeared on the first season of “The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills.” Grammer said he jokingly told his wife she could appear on the “Divorced Wives of Beverly Hills” after they split.

Grammer does not have kind words for his ex, saying, “I think she married me because I was ‘Frasier.’” He claims Camille asked for a divorce “really almost the first day we were married,” so he eventually gave it to her.

Their divorce was finalized in early 2011.

Camille and Kelsey are currently involved in a nasty custody fight for their two children. Grammer said the two have had “no contact.”

The actor’s tone changed when he spoke of his new wife, Kayte Walsh. “It was like all the planets had danced together into a segregated charm on our behalf,” he said of their meeting.

(If any reader can define exactly what a “segregated charm” is, this writer and commenters scottandrewtaylor and kelly19 would appreciate it!)

Grammer’s harsh words comes days before his new Starz series, “Boss,” premieres. Ain’t celebrity love grand?
