Kelsey Grammer commits to a tattoo -- his first

Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh

Kelsey Grammer has been married four times, but he's only now gotten his first tattoo. A tattoo, after all, is a big commitment.

Grammer, still toppling head over heels in his love affair with Kayte Walsh, landed flat on his back Saturday on a table in a Chicago tattoo parlor. He now bears the first name of his fourth wife, in cursive, on his person. Permanently. Unless he pulls an Angelina Jolie.

Depending on the source, Grammer got the tattoo on his "abdomen" or his "hip." The Chicago Sun-Times' nice article on Grammer's visit to the parlor puts the tat at his waistline. The site notes that a 21-year-old employee of the parlor didn't know who Grammer was and made him provide ID.

Tattoo sites recommend avoiding ink on body areas that will likely sag or wrinkle up like an old Granny Smith apple over time. But you don't want to go for skin stretched over bone, necessarily, because inking that area may cause a bit more pain.  

Grammer, by settling on the abdominal area, had more padding to offer the tattoo artist.

Weight gain — even significant weight gain — shouldn't stretch Grammer's tattoo like Silly Putty ("Kayyyyyyte"), say those in the know. The real danger are the stretch marks that can accompany weight gain. Those can really gum up a great tattoo.

So, the actor — who appears to be in fine shape — now has even more incentive to avoid putting on the pounds.  But having a beautiful blond wife 27 years his junior probably provides more than enough incentive.

Grammer, who plays the mayor of Chicago in "Boss" on Starz, is set to become a father again as Walsh, who was a flight attendant, is pregnant with twins. In January at the Golden Globes, Grammer revealed that Walsh was in her second trimester, the New York Post reported at the time.

Their romance sparked some censure as it began while he was still married to third wife Camille.  Only about two weeks separated the old Grammers' divorce and the new Grammers' wedding

With the new kids, Grammer will be a father of six.  He has daughter Spencer, 28, with first wife Doreen Alderman; daughter Greer, 19, with Barrie Buckner; and son Jude, 7, and daughter Mason, 10, with third wife Camille.

His actress-daughter Spencer had a son last October, making Grammer a grandfather.

Camille Grammer totally OK with Kelsey and Kayte expecting twins?

Camille Grammer

After Kelsey went public Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards about the twins he's expecting with new wife Kayte Walsh, Camille on Tuesday dropped a little note: "We are happy for him and his wife."

In response to an outraged fan who said she didn't have to be that way after he'd cheated on her, she wrote, "Agreed. But there is no need to hold on to any negativity."

Later, she tweeted, "I have known for a couple of months. It wasn't much of a surprise."

Not every day one of the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" is connected to a calm lack of drama, eh?

The claim that she's known for a while contradicts a report out Monday saying she learned about the babies from the media on Sunday.

Kelsey Grammer, the star of Starz's "Boss," won a Golden Globe on Sunday for actor in a TV series. Backstage, he told reporters, "Right now I'm really happy gearing up for the second season. And my wife and I are expecting so there's a lot on our plate." He described Kayte as "one of the most loving, amazing, warm human beings I've ever met."

Camille Grammer told the Huffington Post last week that "It's so unfortunate that he still talks about private matters. It's hurtful to me and its disrespectful to our children. He's not thinking of the kids when he's doing stuff like that."

Walsh and Kelsey Grammer got engaged in December 2010. Camille filed for divorce on July 1, 2010, shortly before stories surfaced about Kelsey's new flight attendant girlfriend. News that Walsh was pregnant with Kelsey's child went public in August 2010; in October they announced that she'd miscarried.

Kelsey Grammer is already a father of four; two of them, his 10- and 7-year-old kids with Camille, are still the subjects of a complicated custody battle.

The Grammers' divorce was final last February, about two weeks before Kelsey and Kayte got married on a Broadway stage.

Thoughts about Camille Grammer apparently taking the high road?

Celebrity weddings 2011: Couples, controversy and wedded bliss

Shania Twain and her new husband Frédéric Thiébaud, among Celebrity Weddings 2011

Boy meets girl. Another boy meets another girl. They eventually switch partners. And that was just one of the topsy-turvy stories from the year in celebrity weddings, which kicked off with Shania Twain and Frederic Thiebaud's New Year's Day celebration of love.

It was, of course, a love that blossomed after their spouses cheated on them with each other.

But the happiness didn't stop there.

Kelsey Grammer found love again, and he only had to be single for two weeks. That was the amount of time between the finalization of his divorce from Camille Grammer and his walk down the aisle with young bride Kayte Walsh.

Other lovestruck celebrity couples were married in a castle (Kate Moss and Jamie Hince) and in secret (Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz), on a ranch (Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth), on a private island (Vanessa Manillo and Nick Lachey) and on a yacht (Brooke Burke and David Charvet). 

Controversy may have danced around the edges here and there, but faces were wreathed in smiles, even if those smiles were short-lived (Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries).

But let's toast the celebrity weddings of 2011. Our wish for happy couples: That we don't see your faces next year in the celebrity breakups of 2012.

Kelsey Grammer marries Kayte Walsh on stage, on Broadway

Kelsey Grammer's wedding to Kayte Walsh was at a Broadway theater. Kelsey Grammer married Kayte Walsh on Friday, ending the two weeks of bachelorhood he's had since finalizing his divorce from Camille Grammer with a ceremony held onstage at the Broadway theater where up until recently he'd costarred in "La Cage aux Folles."

The ceremony -- Kelsey's fourth walk down the aisle -- was held before the Longacre Theatre's evening performance of "La Cage," which now stars Jeffrey Tambor and Harvey Fierstein. Cast member Terry Lavell, who plays a drag queen in the show, has a license to officiate at weddings and was expected to do the honors.

Upon arrival, the groom was immediately flanked by more than half a dozen security guards who opened giant umbrellas to protect him from the paparazzi and media gathered outside the theater, Access Hollywood reported. A reception was to follow in the Plaza Hotel's grand ballroom.

The bride wore a white dress slightly reminiscent of the one Camille Donatacci donned for her wedding to Grammer in 1997, TMZ amusingly pointed out.

Walsh, 29, and Kelsey Grammer, who turned 56 on Monday, got engaged in early December. Camille, 42, filed for divorce on July 1, shortly before stories surfaced about Kelsey's new stewardess girlfriend. News that Walsh was pregnant with Kelsey's child went public in August; in October they announced that she'd miscarried.

Camille Grammer agreed to a bifurcation that allowed the divorce to become final on Feb. 10, even though the exes' property settlement is not complete.

Jude, Camille and Kelsey's son together, reportedly attended the ceremony, while their daughter, Mason, did not. Prior commitments on short notice, you know. Us Magazine reported that the "Frasier" star's 28-year-old actress daughter, Spencer Grammer, part of the cast of TV's "Greek," read a poem.

It's final: Camille and Kelsey Grammer are divorced

Kelsey Grammer and Camille Donatacci Grammer divorce is final. Kelsey Grammer is officially divorced from Camille Donatacci Grammer as of Thursday, though the property settlement between the sitcom actor and his newly minted real ex-wife of Beverly Hills has yet to be worked out.

Kelsey pushed through a bifurcation of the case — separating the divorce from the property deal — so that he could marry wife No. 4, Kayte Walsh, as soon as possible. That leaves in limbo, at least for now, the fate of shared assets such as the exes' house in Bridgehampton, N.Y., and other trifles in the estimated $100-million estate they accumulated during 13 years of marriage. 

Kelsey did have to post a $2.3-million bond to guarantee Camille's rights to her share of his pension, TMZ said.

Camille, 42, filed for divorce on July 1, shortly before stories surfaced about Kelsey's new stewardess girlfriend. News that Walsh was pregnant with Kelsey's child went public in August; in October they announced that she'd miscarried. Kelsey, 55, and Kayte got engaged in early December.

Though the "Frasier" actor had no comment through his rep, onetime Playboy model Camille said in a statement Thursday that she hoped she and Kelsey could "improve our communication" and co-parent their two children.

"I wish Kelsey and Kayte love and happiness in their new marriage," said "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star.

Camille Grammer grilled about allegedly sexless sex life

 

Camille Grammer, she of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" fame, is used to being in the hot seat for inappropriate behavior -- but we at the Ministry think Barbara Walters deserves a wrist slap.

Camille Grammer Camille, currently embroiled in a divorce battle with actor Kelsey Grammer, appeared on "The View" on Monday to promote the second part of her "Housewives" reunion special airing Tuesday, where Walters asked some tough questions about her sex life.

"You sort of implied that you hadn't had sex with Kelsey in a couple of years ... and if so why are you that surprised that he wanted someone else?" Walters asked, referring to Kelsey's fiancee, Kayte Walsh

"You'd have to ask him that," Camille responded with nervous laughter, evident in the clip above.

"I thought I'd ask you since you're the one who said it," Walters pressed, sounding annoyed (at best).

"We tried and something didn't click with us on an intimate level, but we were best friends," Camille said.

Kelsey Grammer tells David Letterman he's getting married in February

Kelsey Grammer talked up the idea of a February wedding to "new girl" Kayte Walsh on Thursday night, despite the fact that the former Camille Donatacci is still inconveniently his wife.

"We're planning to get married soon," Kelsey told David Letterman on Thursday about his plans with Kayte. "Sometime in February," the "Cage aux Folles" star added.

Camille Grammer, however, has asked the court to reject Kelsey's bid for a quickie divorce -- making it legal now, and working out the details later -- and wait until a property settlement has been reached.

In related awkward situations, the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star -- at least for now -- met Kayte for the first time Thursday, seeing and speaking to her estranged husband for the first time since he called her and said he didn't want to be married anymore. She filed for divorce in July.

Kayte was at one time pregnant with Kelsey's baby, but miscarried in October. They got engaged in December.

"I saw Kelsey today, and I met Kayte for the first time," Camille told Popeater. "It was a little uncomfortable at first, but then I met her and I shook her hand. And I looked into her eyes, and I thought, 'She's OK, she's nice.' "

OK.

That's nice.

The current Mr. and Mrs. Grammer are due in divorce court on Jan. 26.

Camille Grammer dodges Kelsey Grammer cross-dressing questions

Grammer-cross-dresser-stern Camille Grammer worked out her own follies Wednesday, stopping by Howard Stern's radio show and chatting about, among other things, future ex-husband Kelsey Grammer.

When Stern pressed the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star about the actor's sexuality, she maintained that he's not gay, but that "La Cage aux Folles," the Broadway show in which he currently stars, was the "right" play for him.

"La Cage," of course, revolves around a glitzy drag-show nightclub on the French Riviera.

"He likes to dress up like a woman?" co-host Robin Quivers asked.

"I didn't say it. I'm not talking about it," Camille said slyly.

Listen to other highlights from the interview here, and give us your thoughts in comments below.

Kelsey Grammer, Kayte Walsh reportedly will have no prenup

Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh Kelsey Grammer, who's currently looking at splitting about $100 million worth of community property in his divorce from Camille Grammer, a.k.a. "No. 3," reportedly won't sign a prenup with wife-on-deck Kayte Walsh, a.k.a. "No. 4."

"He knows she's the one and wouldn't insult her by asking her to sign a prenup," a nameless friend of the "Frasier" actor told PopEater. There was no prenup between Kelsey and Camille either, says TMZ.

"Kelsey doesn't care about the money. He never has," a friend told PopEater. "This is about being happy."

The Chicago Sun-Times, meanwhile, reports allegations of dealbreaker behavior on both sides of the Kelsey-Camille split -- the words "cold fish," "clueless" and "poisoning" come into play.

But none of that matters anymore for the manlier Grammer, 55, a guy we'd like to note has had a pretty rough life.  "Kayte and I are marrying  because we are in love and we see no reason to postpone our happiness any longer," he said in a statement. "End of story. We are planning something we wish to be a private affair among several of our friends." Walsh, a former flight attendant, is 25.

Meanwhile, Mrs. Grammer No. 3, a former Playboy model, is "nowhere near ready to date," her "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" costar Taylor Armstrong tells Us Magazine.

How nice that must be for Camille and Kelsey's two single-digit kidlets, Mason Olivia and Jude Gordon.
