As if their poor children haven't witnessed enough drama to date, Kelsey Grammer and Camille Grammer are now furiously fighting over who gets them. Today, according to People, Kelsey filed for sole custody of the couple's two children -- Mason, 9, and Jude, 6.

Apparently the filing offers Camille time with the kids during half of their summer and winter breaks, and that's it? As wackadoodle as she is, it certainly doesn't seem that's a fair arrangement ... unless there's something going on we don't know about. The comment from Kelsey's rep doesn't give much detail:

Any statement would be inappropriate. The filing speaks for itself.

As for Camille, a source told TMZ she called the filing "another act of creepishness and chutzpah."  On Twitter she posted a link to the story about Kelsey's filing along with the message: "So unfair 4 our children."

While she was apparently open to a shared arrangement previously, sources told the site Kelsey's latest move changes everything. She reportedly told friends she will "fight like hell" to keep her kids with her ... "exactly where the children wish to be."

Gah! And just when it seemed they had called a truce.

These poor kids. I just want to take them and Charlie Sheen's kids and all the other children of nasty, public, Hollywood divorces to some sanctuary where they can be forever shielded from all the nastiness. While Kelsey and Camille fighting makes some pretty good fodder for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, any of it ceases to be entertaining when you think of these children being affected by it all. And of course, there are hordes of nannies whose jobs hang in jeopardy -- let's not forget them either.

Honestly, I don't even have much of an opinion as to who should get the kids in the Grammer case, other than NEITHER until they learn to behave like adults and figure out how to get along for the sake of these boys. A hearing is set for June 27.

Which Grammer do you think should get custody of the kids -- Kelsey, Camille, or neither?
