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."

Kelsey is a total jerk. Camille took a down and out used-to-be mediocre tv actor who had drug and alcohol problems, gave him emotional and financial support, and what does she get in return? Dishonesty, abandonment and disrespect. Kelsey's karma train is coming, trust me. Wife #5 better realize that when he cheated with her on Camille, he will cheat on her with another woman. Men like Kelsey don't change their lives ~ they just change wives.

Maybe he's feeling guilty over the way he left the marriage. You'd be surprised how many of them end when the g/f winds up with a little one on the way. But he knew that was possible. I don't dislike the guy but face up to how you treated the ex. If your unhappy just leave don't go out & find the worst way possible to leave. With some women it all but destroys their self esteem when the guys finds other "friends".

I do not trust Piers Morgan. I think he would do anything to "wow" his viewing public. He is so full of himself - and a phony to boot!

A Kelsey Grammer interview? Why? Has he done something else since tattooing his old hip with his new wife's name?

This guy is an ******* and ugly to the boot. He left his family for a mousy miss piggy lookalike and he's going round saying nasty things about the ex-wife. ******* if she hadn't stayed with you when you were drunk and drugged,,you'll be dead by now. grow up.

I'm probably the minority here but I don't blame Kelsey for walking out. His first mistake was agreeing to be on Piers Morgan's show, he such a tool !!!

Kelsey has been all over television lately trying to get sympathy for his life with Camille, playing a victim..he's the one that keeps bringing it up. He needs to move on. In a few years, he'll be doing the same thing with this wife. He's too dysfunctional to make a marriage work.

Kelsey doesn't have to agree to a no-holds-barred interview. Why should he?


Possibly....he agreed to talk about certain subjects and exclude others. Possibly....Piers Morgan tipped his hand with the intro and Kelsey said FU, buddy, and walked out rather than sit there and argue with Morgan and look like a bigger dick. It could have gone down that way.


All these interviews are prepped. If Morgan was looking for a "gotcha" moment, he lost. If Kelsey had set no terms and then bolted when he saw his wife's pic, then he's a dick.


Since Kelsey is seen out in public by TMZ guys all the time, does he fly into a rage when asked about ex's?

Kelsey Grammer is a mental calse and needs help. He has an ax to grind with his ex wife and he can't even mention her name without him going into fits of anger. This all happening on t.v. is like a never ending soap opera with him.

Sounds like Kelsey has some serious issues that need to be managed. Bolting from the interview was very unprofessional. If he was concerned Piers would mention Camille, all he needed to do was to declline to talk about her. Celebrities refuse to discuss particular topics all the time. There was no need for Kelsey to flee the scene.

Piers Morgan is a grade A douche. Hate everything about him, won't watch his show, and hope he fades into complete irrelevance very quickly.

Kelsey Grammer - D. O. N. E.

Camille loved you and stayed with you when you had nothing. Remember, you had a HUGE coke habit back in the day. You chose to play outside your marriage. Now, you can't stand looking in the rear view mirror. Shame on you.

Kelsey Grammer should be ashamed of himself acting is such a crazy way over the mere sight of a picture of the mother of his two children. He needs to quit agreeing to t.v. interviews until he can better handle his emotions. I would never watch this fool on t.v.

You know who can play that Florida pastor Terry Jones is Kelsey Grammar. He would be perfect. Another idea is who can play Anna Nicole Smith is Kate Upton.
