Camille asked for a divorce really almost the first day we were married. If you say you want a divorce enough times, you’re going to get one. I think what I was trying to do was sell it to myself. There was this small voice in the back of my head saying, ‘This isn’t going to work.’ But I stuck to it.
She married me because I was Frasier.
I have to tell you, the Real Housewives was my parting gift to her. It was my way of saying, ‘Look, you always wanted to be famous. Here you go.’ I remember having one conversation where I said, ‘Well, don’t worry about it. After the first season, you can do the Divorced Wives of Beverly Hills next season.
I think it would just be so gross and awful to marry Frasier though. Is that just me? And I’m not talking Kelsey Grammer, otherwise “gross and awful” would be a given, I’m talking the character of Frasier. I hate the hell out of that show, and I don’t think it has anything to do with the fact that sometimes it comes on instead of Golden Girls.
I know there’s a lot of negativity in this story, so let’s talk about a positive real quick: how sweet was it of Kelsey to let Camille do Real Housewives? What a gift! I’m sure she must be just ever so thankful, right?
