Kelsey Grammer Bails on Piers Morgan
It was an awkward night for Piers Morgan Wednesday. Kelsey Grammer was scheduled to appear on "Piers Morgan Tonight," but just moments before the show was to start Grammer reportedly bolted when his segment opened with a photo of his ex-wife Camille Grammer. A rep for Grammer told "The Hollywood Reporter", "Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It's called accountability." Morgan had this to say, "I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do. I wasn't even going to mention his ex-wife."
