Who's Making Things Worse: Kelsey Grammer or Camille Grammer?

Kelsey Grammer and Camille Grammer are having a very messy divorce. And both seem to be very much at fault.

At first, Kelsey seemed to be the instigator: he moved to New York, proposed to Kayte Walsh and asked Camille for a quickie divorce so he could be married in early 2011. Reportedly, he asked Camille to be on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so she's get off of his back so he could be with Kayte.

However, reports surfaced that Camille hasn't exactly been angel herself. Sources claim that she's been awful to Kelsey for a long time now, and even placed him on a one year sex ban.

I think the ultimate conclusion is that the Grammers had a broken marriage, so Camille overcompensated (she has four nannies, right?) and Kelsey ran away.

Tying in with this, rumor has it that Kelsey encouraged Camille to be on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills so he could cheat with Kayte. I don't necessarily agree with this. I think Kelsey may have encouraged Camille, but that's so she could build an identity of her own, an issue that she clearly struggled with. Kelsey had to know that he would look terrible in the public eye during the divorce if Camille became famous. On the other hand, if Camille really was at fault, Kelsey knew the show would out her as a mess, and turn the public to 'Team Kelsey.'

I think the real answer is that both Kelsey and Camille are seriously at fault. There's no innocent party. You should not cheat on your spouse, and for this Kelsey was wrong. That being said, you should also not be intentionally hurtful to your spouse either. Kelsey and Camille, your lives may be public, but your dirty laundry could have stayed private. You might have been a bit better off that way.
