Piers Morgan is none-too happy with Kelsey Grammer, after the actor bailed on an interview with him, moments before the show was about to begin.
Apparently, Grammer saw a teaser for his guest appearance on the show that included a photo of his third ex-wife Camille, who he has an acrimonious relationship with. Assuming she was going to be brought up during the interview, Grammer abruptly left the studio with no warning to his host.
And, Morgan was not amused. He took to his Twitter page to call out the actor’s disappearing act, tweeting “Kelsey Grammer was supposed to be on my show now but ran out of the building. Strange.”
Someone from his staff must have filled him in on Grammer’s awareness of his appearance teaser, as Morgan took to Twitter again a short time later explaining, “So, Kelsey saw a photo of his ex-wife Camille in the open to our show and legged it. Extraordinary. Never had this happen before…I like Kelsey personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do. I wasn’t even going to mention his ex-wife!”
Even more flummoxing was that Grammer and Morgan spoke backstage before the teaser aired and Grammer apparently told Morgan he was looking forward to the interview.
Morgan is clearly holding a grudge about the incident, tweeting the following day, “I’ll be on Jimmy Fallon tonight – and relax Jimmy, unlike my guest Mr. Grammer last night, I won’t run away.”
For his part, Grammer isn’t fessing up as to why he bailed on the interview. But, his rep Stan Rosenfield called out Piers Morgan saying, “Piers needs to take responsibility for what he did to Kelsey. It’s called accountability.”
According to Morgan, it’s called being a “tiresome diva,” but either way it doesn’t look like these two will be putting the incident behind them anytime soon.
