Kelsey Grammer bails on Piers Morgan

Kelsey

Ahhh, first world problems! 

Kelsey Grammer was scheduled to guest on Piers Morgan Tonight last night, but promptly left the set moments before the CNN host was scheduled to start interviewing the TV legend. Morgan tweeted about the incident.

"Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show now but ran out of the building. Strange," Morgan wrote.

"So, Kelsey Grammer saw a photo of his ex-wife Camille in the open to our show and legged it. Extraordinary. Never had this happen before. ... I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do. I wasn't even going to mention his ex-wife!" he continued.

Stan Rosenfield, the spokesperson for Grammer, said the fault was Piers alone.

"Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey," said Rosenfield. "It's called accountability."

Grammer and Camille, who appeared together on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, divorced last year after 13 years of marriage. They have two kids together. The divorce has been messy, with Camille making public claims that Grammer enjoys dressing up in women's clothing.

Camille also blamed their divorce on Fox News. She said his "commitment" to watching Fox News strained their marriage. In addition, he said she only married him because she was marrying Frasier, referring to his role as Dr. Frasier Crane on Cheers and Frasier.

While I think Piers is a bit of a douche, that doesn't make being unprofessional okay. Grammer had no beef with being on the show, UNTIL he saw a photo that made him a sad panda. That's unprofessional.

Dont forget that it's the same piers morgan who printed false photos of soldiers abusing prisoners in iraq....we're awfully glad that you have him in the U.S. ...that means we don't have to put up with the odious little creep back here ion the U.K.

This is the same guy who supported a presidential nominee who claimed she's been chosen (and apparently soon-after abandoned) by God - so, running out a show, not that shocking. *** (Also, I misread "that scumbag Kelsey," and chuckled. Where is a comma when you need it, PaulMcG!) *** And yet, the world of 'Boss,' which Grammmer is heavily involved in, is fairly coherent and rather pronouncedly devoid of ... religious and libertarian fundamentalism, etc. Go figure!

I don't blame Kelsey.  If I were him, the first thing I would think upon seeing them air the picture of Camille would be "Oh, crap!  They're gonna grill me about the divorce and all the BS things she said about me.  I'm outta here!"

Kelsey probably realised it was 'THAT' Piers Morgan he was booked in to talk to. The Piers Morgan responsible for phone hacking whilst chief editor at the Daily Mirror newspaper. You had a lucky escape from that scumbag Kelsey.
