Kelsey Grammer
 allegedly just stormed out of CNN's studios in NYC moments before his scheduled interview with Piers Morgan -- and according to Morgan, it was all because producers aired a pic of Kelsey's ex-wife at the start of the show. 

Morgan took to Twitter to explain Kelsey's absence tonight, writing, "Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show now but ran out of the building. Strange."

He continued, "Kelsey Grammer saw a photo of his ex wife Camille in the open to our show and legged it. Extraordinary. Never had this happen before."

"I had a very friendly chat with Kelsey backstage. He said he was really looking forward to the interview. Weird."

He added, "I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do. I wasn't even going to mention his ex-wife!"

Kelsey's rep responded in a statement, saying, "Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It's called accountability."

Funny that Kelsey's rep talks about "accountability" when Grammar can't even honor his marriage vows. What a big baby.

I'm sorry, but when your last major gig ended damn near ten years ago and your more recent "work" involves a very messy divorce from a woman you cheated on, Piers Morgan is likely going to play hardball with the questions. _Every_ celebrity knows what to expect from this man. Mr. Grammer likely thought he was a big boy and could handle it, but then saw the opening and panicked.

You don't get to negotiate with the press when it's at this level. Mike Wallace wouldn't have given Kelsey Grammer an inch. As tabloid as Piers Morgan Tonight may seem, it's not nearly as obsequious as Larry King Live was.

Piers, you know that Kelsey doesn't want to talk about her or see her picture as an intro to his interview. Kelsey is smart enough to know that if you showed her picture, then you were going to mention her. You are so full of BS and thought you'd get away with it but you got what you deserved.

I kinda agree with Kelsey here. Who would want to be ambushed. It's not like ambushing people is unheard of or uncommon. I imagine Kelsey saw the photos of his Ex and thought to himself this is a set up and took off. Quick smart thinking really.

Piers says he wasn't going to ask about the ex, and if that is true, the only reason for that would be that Kelsey said he wouldn't do the interview unless she was left out of it. So it sounds like Piers agreed, but then Kelsey saw her big old photo plastered on the screen and thought that was enough to violate the terms of their agreement. I would have been mad too, if it were me.

What was he afraid of? The rumors that he and Camille are messing around on his new wife whom he messed around on Camille with? There is no reason for him to bolt. It's common knowledge he was married to Camille for a long time and he never had issues talking about her before. Something unis up with that idiot. Always hated the guy. More so now.
