In a confession that will no doubt spark the reaction “You don’t say!” from viewers, Kelsey Grammer has admitted that he should have been honest with ex-wife, Camille, and told her he had met another woman before they went in front of reality television cameras.
“I was trying to pretend things were normal for the sake of letting her have that moment. It was just ill advised,” the former Cheers star told Anderson Cooper when asked if he had any regrets about the scenes he was in on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“It was the wrong decision and I should have come home from England when I first met Kayte [Walsh] and just said, ‘Listen I’ve met somebody and this hasn’t been working for a long time.’ I regret not doing that.
“I thought I could do something nice, some parting thing and so it was very painful and uncomfortable,” explained Camille’s wayward former spouse. “It was uncomfortable for Kayte, it was uncomfortable for all of us.”
As longtime viewers of RHOBH will remember, Camille filed for divorce in July 2010 during filming of the first season of the show in what turned out to be a very dramatic initiation into reality TV for her.
The high profile split went on to become one of the most bitter in Hollywood history by the time it was finally resolved in February 2011.
The 57-year-old Boss star told Anderson that even though he has countless regrets in his life, “I can’t spend my life apologizing. We make mistakes in life hopefully with people that know how to forgive,” said the thrice-divorced actor.
Grammer went on to open up about the pain he and Kayte suffered when one of their twins miscarried earlier this year.
“It’s tough. That was really hard. Kayte and I both, we’ve not really allowed ourselves to mourn him, he was our little boy,” he told Cooper. “It was a sad, sad time.”
Walsh gave birth to the surviving twin, daughter Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammar, on July 13, 2012.
