Recently Kelsey Grammer sat down with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Next Chapter to discuss the most personal parts of his life. This included the death of his brothers and sister, as well as the public dimise of his marriage. He explained to her that appearing on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was the last thing he felt he "owed" his ex-wife Camille Grammer.
It's no secret it's been an ugly divorce, and even Kelsey asked Oprah not to mention his ex-wife by name during the interview. Soon after he appeared on "Piers Morgan Tonight" where he walked off the set after producers included photos of his ex-wife in the intro piece. In continued promotion for his latest show, he stopped by “Anderson Live” where he touched on just why he did decide to do the Real House Wives cameo.
“I was trying to pretend things were normal for the sake of letting her have that moment for the sake of somehow letting her have that moment,” Kelsey said. In his opinion he felt it was a way to give Camille what she always wanted and sacrificed for him- fame.
Though he did it out of the goodness of his heart, he explained that it may be one career move that he regrets. “It was just ill advised. It was the wrong decision and I should have come home from England when I first met Kayte and just said, ‘Listen I’ve met somebody and this hasn’t been working for a long time.’ I regret not doing that,” he continued. “I thought I could do something nice, some parting thing and so it was very painful and uncomfortable. It was uncomfortable for Kayte, it was uncomfortable for all of us.”
Today Grammer is happily married and just welcomed a new daughter with former flight attendant Kayte Grammer.
