Hope Over Experience: Kelsey Grammer Preparing for $50 Million Divorce Payout To Third Wife While Refusing Pre-Nup With Fourth Wife To Be

It is becoming abundantly clear why Kelsey Grammer did not play a lawyer on television. The Frasier star is about to divorce his third wife, Camille Donatacci, who reportedly refused a $30 million settlement because it did not include child support or alimony. He did not have a prenup. However, Grammer, 55, wants to hurry along the divorce so he can marry his fourth wife, 29-year-old Kayte Walsh. However, he is again refusing to do a pre-nup because he is certain this time that they are meant for each other. The case is a textbook account of the limits on lawyers being able to protect clients from themselves.

Camille is likely to get around $50 million.

Wife number four is expected to wed him as soon as wife number three is paid off. Grammer seems to treat marriage like bad gamblers treat poker — the next hand will be the one I have been waiting for. I give him points for romance but this appears the ultimate example of hope triumphing over experience.

I can only imagine the consultation with his attorney, who is duty bound to gently suggest that he could make the pre-nup ceremony quite romantic and fun for both parties. Alternatively, has he considered gratuitous relations as an alternative to marriage? At this rate, the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers is going to dedicate a shrine to Grammer with a plaque reading “Follow Thy Heart . . . And Retain Thy Lawyer.”

Of course, divorce lawyers are not the only members of the bar facing recidivists but few feel free to give the most direct advice: [warning bad language]

  2. SwM,

    Wow … one hell of a voice coming out of that woman!

    I saw a video clip of Paul Potts on the same page and him I do remember … from somebody mentioning him a few months ago.

    Pop culture just passes me by …. 🙂

  3. I would say Heads up…..but that’s probably the one doing the thinking…..

  4. I tried to embed Susan Boyle for you but it didn’t work, Blouise. I watch Glee every week too.

  5. mespo,

    I once watched an entire season of Survivor and then helped a friend make an audition video … he made it on the show but I always forgot to watch it so he bought me the season on DVD … which I still haven’t watched all the way through.

    Who are Paul Potts and Susan Boyle?

    Does Glee count? I watch that show religiously.

    Come on mespo, my favorite movie is Rustler’s Rhapsody … I’m just not a sophisticate when it comes to talkies on either the big or the little screen.

    My TV is 12 years old … it’s huge from front to back and weighs a ton. I’ll buy a new one when it breaks. I hear the new ones do everything but wash windows.

  6. anon nurse: “among us didn’t want to see Tom DeLay on the floor?”


    LOL, you must keep this in the strictest confidence, just between us girls, but yes, I watched DWTS to see Tom DeLay. I wanted to see him in tacky costumes. 🙂

    I’m thinking you mean Project Runway, my fave. Tim Gunn is a ghod and the fashion fails (early in the season) are often as breathtaking as the fashion wins later in the season.

  7. “Call me Winnie, I guess.”

    Winnie!?, Winnie?!…..??

    Oh, the “Church hill” kind and not “the Pooh”!
