Kelsey Grammer refuses to mention ex-wife’s name

Actor Kelsey Grammer refuses to utter his ex-wife Camille’s name after enduring a bitter and public divorce and custody battle in 2010.

The former “Frasier” star recently invited Oprah Winfrey into his Los Angeles home for a sit-down interview with his new wife, Kayte Walsh, but when quizzed about his failed third marriage to Camille Grammer, the actor insisted on simply referring to her as “that person.”

In a short video clip of the candid chat, which will air on Oprah’s “Next Chapter” on Sunday, Grammer admits he “lacked the courage” to tell Camille their 13-year union was over, but accepts that she played a big part in helping him achieve such a high level of fame taking care of their two children while he focused on work.

He says, “I did believe that I owed something to that person, that I owed fame.”

Picking up on the odd tone as he discusses his ex, Winfrey asks, “You won’t say her name?” to which he replies, “No.”

With a hint of sarcasm, he then explains, “(I owe her fame) because she had given up so much to just endure this horrible life she had with me.”

During the interview, Grammer and Walsh, wed in 2011, also introduce Winfrey to their baby daughter Faith, who was born last month.

The actor also shares two children with Camille, while he has another two adult kids from previous relationships.

Also, PS, it is a pretty horrible life to be stuck raising two kids while your husband cheats on you and leaves you abruptly. Kelsey is such a fucking dick.

In some ways, If a wife or husband is capable of doing that to their partner, its a chance for their partner to find somebody better, so whenever I see this happen to a person, I pray they can find that path to a better life. The best revenge is living well. Then the EX can continue on to his/her 4th, 5th and 6th marriage, until they are a wrinkly alcoholic prune and finally realize that they alone are responsible for their own misery.

camille raised her kids? this is news to me.

/I'm not knocking single parents but Camille had 4 nannies.
ifiwasyourgirl 28th-Aug-2012 10:16 pm (UTC)
Camille has said before that the 4 nannies were never there at the same time. They rotated shifts of something.

Anyway the kids were under her care, and he up and left to start a new, fun life.

People who bring up this stuff always sound bitter and broke tbh.

LOL at being "stuck raising the kids" , you make it sound like a punishment.

He said in the interview that she had her own boyfriends. Which, if you watch Real Housewives, isn't hard to believe since she flirted like crazy with one of her guy friends. Even kissing him. So I think they were both in the wrong.

Camille is queen and Kelsey is a douchebag
They were together like 13 years jfc Kelsey

and it's so weird that his daughter's son and his daughter are close in age

alisonia333 28th-Aug-2012 10:20 pm (UTC)
That's what happens when you marry someone closer to your kids' age than yours!

What a piece of shit.
chokey_lowkey 28th-Aug-2012 09:54 pm (UTC)
Oprah is more "forgiving" now that her network is struggling. Oprah from 5 years ago wouldn't take any of that BS, and would have pressed the issue with him.
adb7 28th-Aug-2012 09:57 pm (UTC)
Yep. I love Oprah but I can't really watch her interviews anymore. It's almost like watching Extra or another celeb gossip show.
cricketgrl 28th-Aug-2012 09:58 pm (UTC)
Really? I feel like she's more aggressive and snotty in this interview than her jolly interviews during her show. I was almost expecting Barbara Walters to jump out in the screen lol.
chokey_lowkey 28th-Aug-2012 10:06 pm (UTC)
LOL @ Barbara Walters. I guess, I expect her to scream out "OMG you dellusional asshole!!" , but maybe that goes against her journalistic integrity? Or then and there when he was being sarcastic, she could have been like "it's a wrap, lets pack up our gear and GTFO of here!"

Ugh what an ass. He's a silly old man.

i love when the person in the wrong acts like an asshole. like, hello you cheated on and left her... you're the bad guy, not camille
bostongirl2003 28th-Aug-2012 10:15 pm (UTC)
I'm sure he's one of those that think if Camille had been a better wife, he wouldn't have wanted to stray.
superhetoric 28th-Aug-2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
this always baffles me. i was talking to a friend at a party this weekend, and he cheated on his girlfriend who is also a friend of mine. he cheated on her, lied to her, misled her, and was a big douche about it, but he said that SHE ruined HIS life and was drunkenly bitching about how all his friends ditched him "in the divorce," as if he'd done nothing to deserve the situation he got himself into. it was baffling to me. i didn't go into it with him for obvious reasons but i think a lot of people who cheat have this attitude.
ericasays 28th-Aug-2012 10:26 pm (UTC)
i seriously don't understand how it all gets warped in their fucked up brains... but i mean, take a little bit of responsibility for yourself, loser.
jewdiful 28th-Aug-2012 11:42 pm (UTC)
i feel pity for people like that. they are guaranteeing their own misery because they neglect to see the primary reason for it - the face staring back at them in a mirror. blaming others for one's own unhappiness and situation in life is easier for some, but it's masochistic self-sabotage
treebraids 28th-Aug-2012 09:59 pm (UTC)
I go back and forth with him. I liked him in the THR roundtable, but in his marriage and divorce he seems like a douche.
myblackass 28th-Aug-2012 10:15 pm (UTC)
He seems like a horrible husband and father but if I experienced half the tragedy he has, I think I would have killed myself or be in a mental hospital. I'm not defending him I was just shocked at what he'd been through.

classiqfemme 28th-Aug-2012 10:24 pm (UTC)
I know nothing about him as a father or husband but MTE to everything else.
xtinkerbellax 28th-Aug-2012 10:25 pm (UTC)
Yea, I think his experiences definitely shaped him as a person, our experiences usually do.
magwildwood 28th-Aug-2012 10:20 pm (UTC)
I like him as an actor, but I don't think he as a person has a lot of character.
so_chic_doll 28th-Aug-2012 09:59 pm (UTC)
He's a dickwad.
