Why Kelsey Grammer Walked Out on His Scheduled Interview With Piers Morgan — and Why the Two Men Are Now Trading Accusations

Sep 20, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Actor Kelsey Grammer "ran out of the building" before a scheduled appearance on Piers Morgan’s CNN show, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which cited tweets from Morgan. The reason? The show aired a photo of Grammer’s ex-wife, Camille.

"Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show now but ran out of the building. Strange," Morgan tweeted.

Later, the CNN host tweeted, "So, Kelsey Grammer saw a photo of his ex wife Camille in the open to our show and legged it. 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!"

Grammer’s spokesman told the publication that Morgan "needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It’s called accountability."

Grammer had been slated to appear on the show to discuss the second season of his Starz show "Boss." Grammer and Camille divorced last year.

  1. Where’s the “trading accusations” part of this story?? What is Kelsey saying Morgan “did” to him, exactly? Chances are the show open was put together by some staffer going through file footage, right? And Kelsey surely would have known that.
    Odd…

  2. Grammer can be an ass, but this time he had a good reason. If you saw an opening sequence like that, you would assume that the topic of his X-Wife is going to come up. Why else put that into the opening sequence? If he agreed to appear only to pulg Boss, he had every right to walk.

  3. Grammer can’t have it both ways. He appeared with Camilla in scenes on her reality show. His divorce was very public. He can’t just wish it away. If he doesn’t want to talk about it, answer the question with “I’m not going to get into that here.” Fleeing the interview is what a spoiled brat does.
