Kelsey's Old Wife Wants Protection From New One

1/26/2011 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kelsey Grammer's soon-to-be ex-wife Camille Grammer is afraid she could be financially fleeced by Kelsey's soon-to-be new wife Kayte Walsh, and she wants a judge to step in and protect her.

Camille Grammer
The legal titans for both sides were in court this AM -- Neal Hersh for Camille and Lance Spiegel for Kelsey -- arguing over whether Kelsey is entitled to an immediate divorce decree, saving those pesky property issues for a later date.

The judge put the matter over until February 7.  So if the judge grants the divorce on the 7th, Kelsey could still get married during the last 2 weeks of February -- which he wants.

But Hersh told the judge he's worried about Camille's cut of Kelsey's pension -- estimated at between $5 and $10 million.  Even if the judge awards her a cut in the pension, Hersh is worried ... if Kelsey dies Kayte could go to the pension administrator as the grieving widow and lay claim to the proceeds.

It's unlikely Camille would lose her pension rights, but just in case Hersh wants Kelsey to cough up a $10 million bond to protect her.

To be continued on Feb. 7th.

Why is everybody bashing Camille? She is the one HE cheated on. Whoever cheats in the marriage should loose everything.They were only thinking of themselves when they cheated so now they should pay up. His new gf seems to be a gold digger..why would you want to be with a married man and think he isnt gonna cheat on you?? Wow, i bet her family is real proud of her....She will be prego again in no time and her claim to him will forever live on..What a tool box. Get him for every dime Camille!!!! Get em girl!

So she is complaining that this other woman is going to get her hands on money neither has even earned? Crazy. When does this stuff end. Yeah, she deserves some compensation for being married to a man she probably never really loved, but let some other hen get some of that chicken feed, Camille. You'll find some other slob to hook you talons into.

I don't see it as gold digging. She has been his wife for 13 years!! Sure he made the money but is has been well written that he was awful with money and she was very good with it. So he wouldn't have kept ahold of that much money if it weren't for her help. I also think she is using the money as a way to get back at him for his foolishness. I kind of feel bad for her.

Wow, the more I read about this women the more of a money-hungry this women seems to be. I'm glad she's taken all the great things about her marriage and has turned them all into money. God forbid you actually married the man because you loved him and not for what you could get out of it after the divorce.

Yeah, like he has been so nice. He lied, cheated and left her and his children. She can't focus on great things about her marriage because he ripped them feelings out of her. She is being vengeful because she is hurt!

It's funny people don't realize Camille botoxed or not made Kelsey, by investing in real estate. etc. He was broke and a drunk when she met him. She didn't homewreck and break up a family. She isn't dating a woman younger than her oldest daughter he is. He's just plain creepy, and the closest thing to Gay there is. Camille needs to stand up for herself and let the 25 yr. old homewrecker fend for herself.

When Camille and Kelsey married, he was heavy into drugs and alcohol, and was not worth much money, according to his own words. He has credited Camille with standing by him and literally saving his life by getting him off drugs and alcohol and keeping him off.

His new girlfriend someone called a lady. A lady does not have sex with someone else's husband, get pregnant, parade publicly with another woman's husband and announce her engagement to same. That is no lady.

I don't have a dog in this fight. I liked Kelsey Grammer before this. I didn't know anything about Camille other than the kind words Kelsey used in praising her and crediting her with his life. She is also his business partner and mother to his children. They life he now has and the money they have as a married couple are due in large part to Camille.

So now Kelsey wants a new, younger version of Camille, one who seems to cure his sexual dysfunction that Camille has alluded to.

Men continue to disappoint me the more I hear. George Lopez has a lovely wife who has literally saved his life by giving him one of her kidneys when he was near death. He thanks her by sleeping around with other women and filing for divorce.

I don't know what Kelsey's problem is with his existing marriage, but does he have to act like such a boob, such a jerk, such a typical man? I'm almost embarrassed for him, not quite.

No divorce should be granted until the complete financial settlement has been decided. Camille will lose all her leverage if this happens. A lawyer explained to me that in the end a marriage is a business, with assets to be divided. She needs to get her part of it while Kelsey is still hot to trot for the new floosie and is highly motivated to agree to a fair settlement. Once they marry, he will not care and the new tootsie will fight for every penny for herself.

Camillie has a legitimate concern and Kelsey has been an ass with his behavior and should offer the bond.

See that's where you are wrong. She did help make that money. He was a disaster when she married him. He was awful with money and into drugs. She was good with money and stood by him through all his crap. He wouldn't have a pot to piss in if it weren't for her.

And I'm glad you don't think he supported every surgery she has had done. I believe he has even had some done.

Lastly, they have been married 13 years and have two daughters togther. It isn't HIS money. It is THEIR money.

It is not being a gold digger to insist on your fair share of marital assets. I love it (not) when men think women should just bow out gracefully out of a marriage and leave the money to the man. Why would she do that? As I said, she is the main reason at this point in Kelsey's life why he has any sobriety, success, money or fame.

Anyway, it does not matter if she did anything but sit at home and eat chocolate, as the old stereotype goes. She is half of this marriage. Marriage is a business with assets. If they decide to end the marriage/business, then assets must be divided fairly, evenly if that is the law in their state. They are one, one entity, a married couple.

And if you want to assign fault, then Kelsey owes the bulk of the assets to Camille, since he is the one having an affair, very publicly and with great shame cast upon Camille. However, society now prefers to have this "no fault" thing where no one is ever wrong.

Society had these rules in place to help people to behave better and to protect families and children. Now all protections are stripped away, so women must fight for every protection they can get. It's a much harder, colder world financially for women alone.

And exactly why does Kelsey have to RUSH into marriage with this new woman. He doesn't have to be married and it won't be his last marriage if he lives a long time. I was with someone 1 month short of 20 years and I didn't feel the need to be married to him ever and made sure it didn't last 20 years. Especially with celebrities in their line of work most don't need to be married because it doesn't last. There is no way I'd be in a relationship period if they were away from me longer than 1 week and I would tolerate that maybe once a year, it would be NEXT!

Finally a judge who didn't side with one of these reckless immoral celebrities who think they can act and do what they want!!!!

What's the rush anyway. True love can wait a month or two. Abide by the rules we all have to.
