Camille Grammer Won’t Let Kelsey Grammer Divorce Her So Easily


Last month we learned that Kelsey Grammer was hoping to get a quickie divorce from his wife Camille Grammer (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills) because he really, really wants to get married to his much younger fiancée Kayte Walsh. Today we learn that Camille is not at all interested in letting Kelsey off that easily … and she plans to ensure that the couple’s divorce is no rushed and speedy matter.

Camille Grammer just fired off a legal response asking the judge to reject Kelsey Grammer’s request to get a quickie divorce — and estimates the estate’s value at $120 million … TMZ has learned. Camille says in her declaration, Kelsey is trying to bifurcate the divorce (get a quick decree now and work out the property settlement later) “…solely for the reason that he intends to remarry as soon as possible.” Camille continues, “I don’t believe this is a sufficient reason to prejudice my rights to the community estate.” In the docs, Camille also lists their assets — including “multiple real estate properties” and more than 25 vehicles. The rest of the declaration gets pretty technical, but the bottom line is this … it looks like Camille’s lawyers believe Kelsey’s papers don’t square with the legal requirements for a quick divorce decree. And get this — if the court grants Kelsey’s request Camille wants $10 million immediately … to hold her over until a final decision is made on the separation of the estate.

It was previously reported that Camille would likely get somewhere in the neighborhood of $50 million in the divorce, now that number is closer to $60 million? Dang. Truth be told, I don’t blame her at all for taking her sweet time with this divorce. She should ensure that the couple’s assets are divided evenly so that she is not cheated out of her share. Look, I may not be a big Camille fan but like it or not, she is entitled to half of the couple’s assets … and Kelsey knows that. Sure, he may want to run off and get married again but Camille would be dumb to let him rush things, especially with so much money involved. If you’re up for some light reading, you can read the legal paperwork that Camille’s lawyers filed in court today HERE. Kelsey will eventually get to marry his new chick again … but not until Camille and her lawyers go over everything with a fine tooth comb to ensure that she gets her due.

Pre-nups, people. This is what pre-nuptials agreements are for.

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. You go Camille!! She’s been unpleasant on the show, but NO ONE deserves to be treated the way he did to her.

    • Mariah

      I agree. I saw her on ‘Watch What Happens’ tonight with Andy Cohen and she seems genuinely sweet. I don’t know if that was a front for tonight or what, but nobody deserves what she’s experiencing with Kelsey. It’s not like they’ve been married for less than a year. It was 13+ years of marriage and we all know that’s a lifetime in Hollywood.

    Man, thats a chunk of change.

    I am sure that she is entitled to something. After all he wants the divorce. But she i working, and has a good income. Shes just being a gold digger. HE did the work and earned that, not she. Maybe he needs to come back and demand that she split up her stuff too? After all, community property, right?
    But, they are both idiots. In that business, and where the live. the should have had a prenatal agreement. So, maybe they are getting what they deserve.

    • @Rob — I don’t agree. Again, I’m no fan of Camille but she did help him invest his money in such a way as to raise their assets a considerable amount. And I would hardly call a wife of 13 years a gold digger.

    • Tee

      @ Rob … It takes work to be a good wife and mother. And, I am sure that her earnings will be split. BTW, prenatal is not the same as a prenup. LMAO

      Im sure they did “prenatal” when she was pregnant with his child. Oh, btw, she did raise their daughter. Marriage is a “union” and unfortunately our society has made it a financial union and short-term investment….just because he was the bigger bread-winner doesnt mean she wasn’t contributing to the family, or isn’t entitled to an equitable split from the “community estate”. Even Clark Howard, one of the most well-known consumer investment advisors is not comfortable with Prenupual agreements. I agree.

  • kay

    Rob, its prenuptial, not prenatal. lol. Also, he was an ass. she deserves half of what’s his

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal

    Sorry is a wack job! Sure she gets half but that doesn’t change the fact that she is nuts. Also, I bet my left ba*l she was cheating on him with Nick!

  • Michelle

    I don’t understand why he wants a quickie divorce to get married again so fast. He’s another prime example of someone taking marriage for granted.

  • Absolutely there should be a 50/50 division of all assets
    in this marriage. It sounds like Camille has the knowledgeable business accumen that multiplied Kelsey’s
    net worth. Therefore, Camille owns 50% of the family
    coffers. Let’s give credit where credit is due folks.
    The 13 years they cohabitated should not allow Kelsey to
    walk away without giving Camille the equal split of assets
    due her. JM

    • What do you mean when you say FLAG? I do know what REPLY
      means but I am new at reading this column and FLAG?
      mystifies me. Would you please elucidate. Thank You J.M.

    • @Joanne Mansfield — Flagging a comment means there is something offensive included. It will be reviewed.

  • jessiluv

    what a moron! Kelsey should have to spend every moment possible in court and dragged through whatever mud for what he has done and how he treated his loyal wife and mother of his kids. Camille deserves half plus some and he needs to not rush into another marriage so quickly thats just not wise. people take marriage and partnership so lightly when your rich. what happened to a man and woman taking vows and truly sticking to them or at least trying. way to go hunny and heal then find your own happiness.

    when i think of kelsey Grammer ,i think wierd, he is most likley a bisexual man! who got tired of camille, hey she is the one that said he dresses in womens clothes,so she should know she was with him for 13 yrs.Face it he is a wierdo.

    • @sherry A — Cross dressing does not equal “bisexual” nor does it make anyone a “weirdo”. He may be a lousy husband but there is no need to throw around stereotypical homophobic slurs around to make your point.

  • All I want to say is….
    What goes around comes around!!!!!

  • ellen

    Hey, these two are both in need to serious counceling. She about herself, money, “body”, and attention. He is an “older” man trying to remain young and viral in hollywood way past his “prime”…Hey you two, think of your children and NOT yourselves. Pretty selfish people…actually I think they’re made for each other..won’t get it till they are all alone in the twilight of their years…unless they pay for companionship
