Kelsey Said, Camille Said

Kelsey Grammer divorce details are emerging from Grammer's split from Camille Donatacci!

Kelsey Grammer divorce details

Kelsey Grammer and Camille Donatacci's split isn't nearly as dirty as other recent celebrity divorces (we're looking at you, Tiger), but they have gotten into a short bout of he said, she said.

According to TMZ, Camille Donatacci told friends the couple's 13-year marriage began to crumble when Kelsey moved to New York for a starring turn in La Cage Aux Folles. Although the move was supposed to be temporary, a source close to Donatacci said it became pretty obvious "Kelsey loved New York, his friends and his freedom more than his marriage."

Camille Donatacci has also complained that Kelsey Grammer didn't call his kids on Father's Day, when he was in New York and they were at home in California.

The source said, "She doesn't know what Kelsey is doing in New York, but he's made it pretty clear he wants nothing to do with marriage anymore. She didn't see it coming."

But Kelsey Grammer wants his fans to know that Camille's account of Father's Day isn't exactly accurate. Grammer told TMZ that he was surprised his kids didn't call him -- it being Father's Day, not Kid's Day, after all -- and that he even texted Camille earlier in the day to wish her own father a happy day, with the hope it would remind her to have the kids call him.

Kelsey Grammer said, "I and two of my old buddies drove upstate to spend a little time in the mountains. We stopped for dinner and when we got to the house (which has no cell service, by the way), I called them to see how they were doing as I do almost every night."

"Perhaps it was foolish of me to expect a call on Father's Day, but frankly I did."

Kelsey Grammer added, "Mason had been upset earlier that day because she was missing me." So why didn't Camille have the child call her dad? Guess it wouldn't look as good in the custody settlement papers -- you know, with her planning the whole uncaring father bit.

Grammer also said that he and Donatacci had been discussing a separation for a while, and added a strange footnote out of nowhere:

"Certainly, the time will come when I do see another woman. I expect Camille to see other men. I hope people and the press will understand that we are both free to carry on with our lives."

Is Kelsey Grammer setting the scene to debut a new girlfriend already? Perhaps that's the real reason behind the split.

First of all, it is no one's fault in divorce. There are people who not compatible, period. I think this bashing of Grammer and his former wife is just something for people who have nothing better to do with their lives. I think people who do the bashing should take a step back and look at their own lives. Their must be something amiss to bash others. I like how people comment on Camille Grammer as if they know her personally. Do you really believe everything you hear. You must be pretty bored. Why don't you all get to know Kelsey Grammer and Camille on a personal level and then come back and make your comments. Your comments are not factual and are biased. I feel badly for Kelsey and Camille that their marriage was not a success. It is very hard to break it off. There could be numerous reason's for a break up and none of you know any of them. I suggest you find the truth and the only way to find the truth is straight from the sources. Grow up!

Camille is absolutely VILE. She is a cunning, manipulative, ugly (inside and outside) . She must think everybody around her has no brain and can't see through her. Ugggghhhh, she makes my blood boil just looking at her. I hope she ends up on her backside with no paid help or maids. Kelsey is only guilty of not getting rid sooner. Best of luck to him.

I think Kelsey Grammer is a lovely, polite, handsome, caring and funny guy. I truly wish him every happiness and only hope that he isnt going down the same marriage road with Kayte as he did with Camille. xxxx I just want to hug him!!!!

The only person I do not like on this show is Kyle. She stirs more crap up than I can handle half the time. When she comes on I go to the kitchen or bathroom just so I don't have to hear her abuse to whom ever she is talking with. Please don't put that plastic Hedi on as the new housewife, between the two of them I promise I will stop watching the show. Let Lisa do the casting, I have faith she will find someone to take Camilles' place. She is great and knows everyone and has the best judge of charater even though she is friends with Kyle.

Have you seen Camille ask Nick to kiss her in front of his wife, she pulls down her bikini bottoms infront of and while being filmed for housewives, she constantly displays ALL the indications of one who is without moral character and by the way it has been repeatedly reported and stated publicly by Kelsye that he and Camille discussed divorcing for over a year... she was NOT blind sided. She is pathetic and selfish and has two token children that she clearly does not have maternal feelings for... how could she, she is too shallow. Also, she is too bitter putting Kelsey down than to care about damaging herf children by dissing their dad the BREADWINNER also, I might add. Anyone notice her only friends get paid by her, they work for her??

Camille grammer is a self centered, she plainly lives off the glory of Kelsey, she is dillusional, she is a liar, she is cunning, apparently suffers from low self esttem, if not, she would not have to put down others in attempts to make herself look good or better. She is a has been as has been had, by many apparently. She is disrespectful, see her and the old fat man in her pool and what's up with Nick, cmon, everyone, a blind person can see she is having an affair or she has been sharing him with his wife...she is pathetic and now wants to look sympathetic!! Too late, look at how she smirks, .then all of a sudden she didn't mean it?? cmon America is seeing what Kelsey has been dealing with and now we say good riddance... go back to your soft porn, Camille. You hypocrite!! And by the way, besides screwing Kelsey, why should you get 50 milliion, you couldn't even get pregnant you were so selfish

Lots of RHOBH watchers on here. She comes off very bad. Regarding her children and 4 nannies she states she is so close w/her children then asks her daughter then the nanny if her son is feeling better as he is standing there? The divorce....who knows what is real what is scripted...remember Kelsey Grammer's problems years back...if you haven't Camille will remind you...I just don't believe in "out of the blue" so either Kelsey Grammer has a mental condition, addiction issues, or basically there is a lot no one knows how do you fall in love on a flight...california is on the opposite coast, but still...IMO, this was probably all in the works before the show started..

This is a REFLECTION of a society that says anything goes. In the 50's these things rarely happened... or if they did they would have descreet affairs. Will there be a pre-nup these men do it because they can. Money Success and Fame. No moral fiber. Where is the 2o somethings parents... perhaps cheering her on with the BIG FISH she just caught. She is nothing more than a temp play toy.. and is too immature to know what is happeing. is always exciting in the beginning of any relationship. let's see... Camila helped throught many tough times.... I think she should get 1/2 of ALL his assesets. He has a beautiful wife and children.... and soon a new younger wife until she gets old... look at Heff.... these men do it because they have the money and society says YES to this bad behavior. We have a SOCIETY PROBLEM... No longer are men govern by what is right or a standard moral conduct... but men live from their and what feels good in the moment. IT is always intersting that the women who stood by him on the way up.... gets tossed to the curb when he makes it big. Shame on you... Boooo hooo.

Shame on you Kelsey. What a way to treat your wife and your children. By betraying their love and devotion to you with this 29 year old kid. She's half your age! You should be ashamed of yourself. Cam is beautiful with your 2 lovely little ones. You basterd! I hope when you do marry Ms. 29 year old she will eventually leave your sorry azz and gouge you from all the cash you got. What goes around comes back around.

Sunshine December 30, 2010 | 7:08 PM

Camille is a self centered evil witch who thinks she's God gift to men. Camille told Kyle that she and Kelsey will no longer do business with her husband; It appears that she won't be doing business with him either! That's what you get Camille for starting mess with Kyle for no reason but, you're just evil!

Steve December 30, 2010 | 2:10 AM

LOL @ the picture of these two top of page, trying desperately to look 20 years old. kelsey is a sad, old man trying to chase his youth; camille is quite nasty to look at and all kinds of delusional. but he's a funny actor deserving of his fame and could be given a pass for his childishness. she's just a talentless . i feel sorry for their kids. just let the nannies keep them. i'm sure that's what these two perpetual adolescents would want anyway. kelsey's gonna be enrolling in college pretty soon at this rate, while taking a 16 year old to her junior prom. pathetic, bro. and he's about to enter ANOTHER marriage without a prenup. not the genius he plays on TV evidently. LOL

Money can buy a lot of things, unfortunately for this family it couldn't buy love and commitment. I've watched the Housewives of Beverly Hills and no, Camille is not the type of person I would have as a friend. However, I don't wish divorce on anyone. No matter what, those people have 2 young children to raise. What has happened to people? It just seems so selfish to me.....

Elizabeth December 27, 2010 | 2:12 PM

Having seen Camille on the Beverly Hills Housewives, frankly I', surprised Kelsey was fooled into marrying her in the first place. She is a shallow, vapid, vicious, social wanna-be. I feel sorry for the kids...

Mary December 25, 2010 | 9:53 PM

All I can say is that crazy wicked bittch Camille is on dope. Kelsey sobbered up and saw the wicked waste he married without a prenup and all he could do is find a young hotty to take his mind off the heartless spawn Camille. He wanted to hurt her bad but she is heartless so she feels nothing!

dddancer December 24, 2010 | 1:37 PM

I went from dislike of Camille to dislike of Kelsey. Both of these idiotic, vacant, wastes of oxygen to the thought that they deserve each other. I am so lucky that my parents loved and respected each other and raised their children to love and respect their families; we had a wonderful upbringing and I feel so sorry for the kids.

Denise T. December 24, 2010 | 10:15 AM

Yeah Kelsey! I am so happy you are rid of Camille. Whatever it takes you will be better off. I don't know how you could stand her phony ways this long. Talk about riding your coattails! Actually I would like to see her really try to make it on her own without any "Kelsey" perks. She seems to think she can. I wish you well Kelsey. Thank-you for all of the entertainment you have provided over the decades.
