Kelsey Grammer stopped by “The Tonight Show” on Wednesday night to promote his new Starz series “Boss,” and with prompting from Jay Leno, he launched into the story about how he met his current wife, Kayte Walsh.
It sounds like a great meet-cute story; she’s a flight attendant on his flight to London, he spots her in the airport, wonders if a woman like her would go with a guy like him, then actually has the fortitude to go up and meet her during the flight, blocking out other potential suitors in the process.
Sounds romantic, right? One problem: Grammer was married to his previous wife, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Camille Grammer, at the time this all happened, which turns this story from “awww!” to “ewww!” with little to no effort. Fans of “Housewives” know that Camille had no clue that Kelsey was stepping out on her, or that her marriage was in trouble. But in telling his story about meeting Walsh, Kelsey alludes to the fact that he had not been happy for quite some time.
