Talk about throwing a temper tantrum!
A seething Kelsey Grammer stormed off the set of CNN show ”Piers Morgan Tonight” before he was to be interviewed because producers briefly flashed a picture of his ex-wife Camille at the start of the program.
Host Piers Morgan then to Twitter to vent his frustration.
“Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show, but he ran out of the building. Strange,” he tweeted Wednesday.
“So, Kelsey Grammer saw a photo of his ex-wife Camille in the open of our show and legged it,” he added. ”Extraordinary. Never had this happen before…I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do. I wasn’t even going to mention his ex-wife.”
The former “Frasier” star was due to promote the show “Boss,” but left the studio just moments before he was to be interviewed.
However, Grammer’s people think that Morgan is in the wrong.
Stan Rosenfield, a spokesman for Grammer, told The Hollywood Reporter, “Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It’s called accountability.”
Kelsey and Camille Grammer divorced last year after 13 years together and it has become somewhat of a war of the roses scenario between them.
Such is his loathing for his ex-wife, that he refuses to even speak her name. And during an interview with Oprah last month, he said Camille “always wanted to be famous, and was angry that she had given up ‘so much’ to be with me.”
Grammer moved on swiftly following the breakdown of his marriage. As soon as his divorce was final he went on to marry Kayte Walsh.
