Kelsey Grammer

Gets Kids Next Week

With Strings Attached

9/30/2011 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelsey Grammer Custody Battle
TMZ has learned Kelsey Grammer just won his battle with Camille Grammer in custody court, but it comes not only with strings attached, but the possibility of an explosion of tempers.

As we first reported, Kelsey and Camille were in family court this morning -- the first time they've come face-to-face since they separated.

Sources tell TMZ ... the two were at an impasse, because Kelsey wanted to take the former couple's two children for 6 days, beginning Monday, while he's in L.A.

We're told Camille, who is repped by Neal Hersh and Judy Bogen, did not want Kelsey to take the kids because Kelsey would not agree to take them to their regularly scheduled activities, which includes dance, sports and therapy. 

With Kelsey's lawyer, Lance Spiegel by his side, we're told the judge allowed Kelsey to take the kids for the 6 days, but under the ruling he must also take them to ALL of their scheduled activities.



Now here's where it gets interesting.  We're told up to now Kelsey has refused to attend any of the events in which his kids participate if Camille is present -- and she's been to pretty much everything.

And, our sources say, Camille will attend ALL of the scheduled activities next week.

Stay tuned for fireworks.

IT HAS TAKEN THE INTERNET to finally reveal how the so-called "famous" live. We have been brainwashed for years thinking these celebrities are better than everyday folks. They are not and proven every time another scandal erupts. Many have no pride, no dignity, no class, just a healthy bankroll and popularity to elevate themselves in their own eyes. Our own families, friends, neighbors and, even Joe Schmo down the street, are far more desirable than these conceited, self absorbed, overly paid publicity seekers who go to court to spite their spouse and to disguise their motives as "love" for their children. Years later, children will remember the tug of war they witnessed and, rightfully so, never forgive either parent. Perfect example of "life biting back!"

So Kelsey is stuck with his daughter for six days? Poor man since his only interest was to be
around the boy. I think Camille is right to be there for every activity of her children. She needs to earn her keep as mother while Mr. G. makes like he's a good parent.

Kelsey, you need to grow the **** up. You have two kids with the woman. How do you plan on avoiding her for the rest of your life? Of course she is going to be at events regarding the kids. They're her kids too! If I remember correctly, YOU'RE the one who had an affair and abandoned the family. Why are you so mad at her? Because she wont just give her children to you and your new wife to play house with? You're such a jackass. Get over yourself. Learn to deal with the Mother of your children in a civil way instead of acting like a spoiled brat.

Camille Donatacci is clearly just using the kids to be able to get at Kelsey Grammer; it's a shame that neither of these two morons actually care about their kids, who deserve love and support and a stable life.

PS: Anyone who thinks Camille is classy needs a pair of glasses. And a pair of ears (and a brain to go between them)

Camille and her camp are experts at what to leak to TMZ and get everyone riled up and on her side! This is about the kids spending well deserved time with their dad when their mom only wants them selfishly under her roof when he's in town. And I do mean under her roof because she sure doesn't spend any time with them away from the public and media!

At the end of the day Kelsey need to remember that its about being their for his kids and to support them in their everyday activities. He should separate himself from them because Camille. Grow up Kelsey and be civil to Camille for the sake of the kids.

Wow, a judge ruled the exact opposite for a friend of mine. He stated that was the father did during his time with him was up to him and not a matter for the court, unless it was detrimental to the kids. The girls miss ballet recitals, girl scouts, plays at school when they fall on dad time. He wanted his family time with them and his new wife and kids, which usually means watching tv.

Kelsey's really worked a miracle, by virtue of his rampant as****tery, he's made his ex-wife, formerly the most hated of the RBOBH housewives, into the most liked housewife (or at the least Housewife with the most sympathy.)

A lot of Americas used to like Kelsey before the divorce fiasco, I know I used to think he seemed like a pretty good guy. Funny, charming family man. Now that he's exposed his true colors, it's like an entirely different man has emerged behind the fake Kelsey he presented to the world all these years. A Kelsey who ditched his aging wife without even giving her the chance to save their marriage through counseling. A Kelsey who impregnated the first 22-yer-old who would jump into bed with him and then paraded her all over New York City as a prize instead of a cheap mistress. A Kelsey who has proven again and again that he does not care HOW much he publicly humiliates his children, and HOW much he disrupts their young lives during this traumatic time, as long as Kelsey gets what Kelsey wants immediately.

It's sad when a lady like Camille, shallow mercenary Camille, is shown to be the calm, loving, reliable parent in contrast with her raging narcissist of an ex who only cares about who is sucking his wee-wee at the time. Sad, Sad, Sad.

While Kelsey might be a tool, and Camille (RWOBH), one ugly azz woman,...here are these children, with their lives splashed across the continent. Did you see the notation of one of the costs,being the children's therapy?
R-e-a-l-l-y ? Are you Kelsey and ugly azz Camille, that self involved,....our babies should be protected, AT ALL COSTS ! If the two of you have to go to the same functions, sit, or place yourself on opposite sides of each other,....aren't you supposed to be adults. C-H-I-L-D-R-E-N see EVERYTHING and remember it as well. Thingk about the scars you are placing in their little minds, watching you two assinine morons.
