Kelsey Grammer Weds, Confirms He's an Insensitive Jerk


Kelsey GrammerIn a lovely private ceremony yesterday afternoon in New York, Kelsey Grammer married his new love, Kayte Walsh at the Longacre Theatre. An extravagant reception followed at the Plaza Hotel where guests feasted on everything from poached shrimp to a 55-inch-tall carrot cake.

Attendees gushed about how "wonderful" it was and how "very much in love" the couple appeared. Sounds perfect, except for that one little matter: His divorce from Camille Grammer was just finalized TWO WEEKS ago. Two weeks, that's it. Call me crazy, but I call that being an insensitive jerk no matter what the circumstances.

I'm no fan of Camille Grammer; I wouldn't be able to stay married to her either. But at least for the sake of appearances, the former Dr. Fraiser Crane could have waited. At this point, the most-hated Housewife is starting to look sort of saintly next to his crass moves.

It's bad enough he couldn't wait to start dating Walsh until he let Camille know he was done with their relationship. Camille only filed for divorce seven months ago, then they sped through the divorce so he could race down the aisle. What's the rush, Kelsey?

It's not like he has never been married before, that's for sure. Walsh is his fourth wife, so it really can't be about the new thrill of the deal anymore. He's been there, done that plenty. My guess is it's Kayte's prodding, that it was she who was chomping at the bit to get that ring on her finger. I mean if the others couldn't keep him, who's to say how long she will be able to do so. And you know how much Camille stands to gain from her days with Kelsey -- figures to the tune of $50 million. So yeah, I might be pushing him to put a ring on it too ... if I was a gold digger.

The whole thing just feels so wrong and so dismissive of Kelsey and Camille's 14 years together in which they brought two children into the world. This comment he made to People last month feels like such a slap in the face to all of it:

"I've never been happier in my life," he said of his current life.

Ouch, just ouch.

And for the final blow, check out this picture TMZ posted of just how much Walsh's dress looks like the one Camille Donatacci wore when she wed Kelsey. Seriously, she couldn't have chosen something a little different?

Do you think it's insensitive of Kelsey Grammer to wed again so soon after his divorce from Camille Grammer?

I disagree. His ex is a horrid woman with zero class. He deserves to be happy. How is him remarrying dismissive of anyone? What does he owe to that controlling, nasty plastic-surgery ridden big mouth who has done nothing but try to embarrass and humiliate him? He owes her nothing. In fact, she should thank him for ever marrying her skanky butt in the first place...She was a nobody and now is a...(chuckle) celebrity.

I agree with seaside, his divorce is final bottom line. He doesnt have any obligation to put his life on hold once those papers are signed & done. His ex-wife agreed in court to finish off their divorce a little quicker so he could tie the knot. If she had that big of a problem with him getting married she wouldnt have agreed to a quicker divorce. She would have made it harder for him to move on.

He can proclaim everything and anything he wants but actions speak louder than words. People fall in and out of love but whilst I do think he was rushing it, Camille hasn't exactly been a shining example of a divorcee either. If she had shut up and gone away like how Sandra Bullock did, she'd gain a lot more respect and sympathy and we'd actually scoff at KG for rushing it. As for the new wife, as much as I'd like to believe that she is really truly madly in love, anyone who can't wait long enough to marry a man who is just divorcing his wife is of questionable character herself. Let's see how long that lasts.

I think he's terrible. I'm not a Camille fan but I'm totally team Camille in this situation. He's a jerk. I hope he enjoys losing the rest of his money when him and his new wife eventually divorce (Wife #4, really??? It's a matter of when they will divorce, not IF)

i agree with seasidegirl.

Im sure there are plenty of aspects to this that we arent privy to. Its not our business anyway. They both should have acted more adult in the situation but again thats all we have seen. As a woman on her 3rd husband I can say what is seen and what is arent always the same.

Maybe this is why people in our country are losing all respect for marriage. Unless she physically (or truly mentally abused him) he married her at one point, have some respect for that. She may have had her faults but he is not some saint. This is his 4th marriage! It doesnt matter what type of person she is, he treated his wife horribly. He chose to marry her, he wasn't forced into it and again he wasnt abused, He could show some class. He humiliated his wife. No matter what type of person Camille is I haven't seen her humiliate him or read anything about it.
