When I sat down to write this post, I decided to refresh my recollection regarding the messy divorce between Camille Meyer (f/k/a Camille Grammer) and Kelsey Grammer. First of all, Camille filed for divorce in 2010. I remember watching an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in which Camille and Kelsey awkwardly rode to the Tony Awards together. They were in the back of a limo. Camille was wearing a red dress and looked amazing. Kelsey was mean to her. Soon after it came out that Kelsey was having an affair.
Anyway, to bring this story back to the really important point: how it relates to me… That episode aired 2009/10-ish? Which means I have wasted at least ten years of my life watching this drivel. Forget the Tony that Kelsey was speeding towards in the back of that limo a decade-ish ago! I deserve some sort of lifetime achievement award from Bravo. I will accept my award in the form of Skinnygirl products.
Camille got a big huge house in Malibu as part of her divorce from Kelsey. Tragically, that home burned down last year in the Woosley Fire. According to People, on a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Camille stated that Kelsey did not reach out to her following the fire.
The couple’s 17-year old daughter, Mason Grammer, is living with Camille. She was in the home when the fire started. People reports that Camille and Kelsey still do not speak.
Geez, isn’t “getting along for the sake of the kids” is, like, Divorce 101? Especially when every detail of the exes’ relationship is available on the Internet, where the kids are just a quick Google search away from all the mud-slinging and gossip? Poor Mason and her 14-year-old brother, Jude, are going to need so. Much. Therapy.

Following Camille’s comments on WWHL, a rep for Kelsey told People that Kelsey “does not comment on remarks made by his former wife.”
That is probably a good call on Kelsey’s part. Otherwise, he would have to hire a full-time employee to keep up with Camille’s Kelsey-related public remarks. Like how she discussed their custody battle and his alleged cross-dressing proclivities on two different nationally-syndicated radio shows. Maybe she’s angling for a radio show?

Listen, I generally do not have a high opinion of Kelsey – he seems really condescending and I think his ego is even bigger than his bank account. Also, cheating on your wife then getting your mistress knocked up before the divorce is even final is really not a good look.
But Camille and Kelsey do not speak and have trashed-talked each other for years. So, what, he’s supposed to all the sudden reach out and be like “Hey, sorry about the house that you bitterly fought me for in our divorce?” I don’t really judge his lack of communication in this case.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK KELSEY SHOULD HAVE REACHED OUT TO CAMILLE?
