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.
For almost a year now, America has waited for Casey Anthony to speak out about her acquittal in the death of her daughter Caylee.
With various reports that she now weighed 500 pounds; signed a book deal; and was moving to Costa Rica, Anthony finally decided to set the record straight.
The 26-year-old spoke to CNN’s Piers Morgan via phone, and Morgan relayed the details of their 10-minute conversation on air.
“I did not kill my daughter,” Morgan quotes Anthony as saying. “There’s nothing in this world I’ve ever been so proud of. There’s no one I loved more than my daughter. She’s my greatest accomplishment.”
She went on to say: ”The public perception of me is bad, absolutely horrible. I was a stupid kid. I’ve never been a ‘party girl,’ and I’ve gone through hell. I’m ashamed in many ways of the person I was.”
Adding to the weight that she has changed her ways, she insisted that she doesn’t drink now and has only had a “handful of beers” since she has been on probation.
Revealing details of her day-to-day life, her lawyer Cheney Mason says Anthony spends her days indoors, watching television and is current reading The Hunger Games trilogy.
Last week, the Brits took over Los Angeles, and with dazzling results.
A slew of boldfaced names turned out to show their support for one of the UK’s most-loved brands.
Here’s the scoop….
Kelly Osbourne attending this past Friday’s Champneys-sponsored BritWeek Gala. Kelly left a lasting impression in the Champneys VIP area, and we’re hoping we could somehow get a super quick Champneys mention or image squeezed in somewhere.
Looking fashionable and chic in an Anthony Franco dress, Judith Leiber clutch and Chanel heels, Kelly left her handprint (think Hollywood Walk of Fame) to be donated to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Piers Morgan, Katherine Jenkins, Jerry Springer and Bear Grylls were among the other celebs whose handprints will be given to the Children’s Hospital as well.
Kirk Cameron hasn’t been making many friends of late after revealing on Friday to Piers Morgan that he believes homosexuality is “unnatural… I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Since then, the furore has grown, with many taking to twitter to slam his beliefs.
Now, he’s former Growing Pains co-stars Tracey Gold and Alan Thicke have joined the ranks of those slamming his comments.
Tracey Gold posted “I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. #NOH8 #LOVE” and changed her profile picture to a shot of her participating in the “NO H8” campaign.
Alan Thicke who played Cameron’s on screen televisions father Jason Seaver tweeted – “I’ll deal with Kirk’s comments as soon as I recover from Rush Limbaugh’s.”
Other stars who have criticized the actor include Craig Ferguson, who wrote: ”Rush makes me ashamed to be a middle aged white man and Kirk Cameron makes me ashamed to be a failed actor. We don’t all think like that NoH8.”
Roseanne said: ”Kirk or kurt or whatever Cameron is an accomplice to murder with his hate speech. So is rick warren. Their peers r killing gays in Uganda.”
Whilst Dave Holmes tweeted: ”Remember yesterday afternoon, when Kirk Cameron’s views were none of our concern? Let’s restore America to that golden age.”
