In another coup for Piers Morgan, putting his past as a British editor firmly behind him, he has persuaded the reticent Kelsey Grammar, best known for his role as Frasier, to tape a one-hour interview - after ex-wife Camille spoke out about him on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
As the Huffington Post put it: apparently he’d had enough of the one-sided talk. Piers “persuaded the private Kelsey to sit with him and discuss everything from his new wife, his custody fight and how he believes his ex-wife was more interested in fame and fortune than him.” Huffpo said Kelsey even revealed he felt "Camille married 'Frasier,' not me."
Camille had outed Kelsey for wearing women’s clothing and poked fun at the size of his member, said Huffpo.
The actor’s return to TV, playing a Chicago Mayor on the new Starz drama Boss, has had great reviews, and a CNN insider said he has his confidence back.
Grammer also told Morgan, according to On Top Magazine, that's he's OK with gay marriage in the interview to be shown on Monday..
On Grammer's politics, Morgan asked Grammer- a known Republican - if he was sympathetic to the Tea Party. Grammer said he agreed with their principles but added that “I've just been told that they're lunatics.”
Morgan pointed out that most Tea Party candidates are “violently opposed” to gay marriage.
“Well, I wouldn't sign on to that,” Grammer responded.
“You played a famous gay character,” Morgan joked. “You'd be banning yourself.”
“I guess I'm more Libertarian in that way. I think marriage is up to two people that love each other,” Grammer said. “I tend to think the government shouldn't be involved in anyway.”
