5 Things To Know About Kelsey Grammer’s New Love Interest, Kayte Walsh

If you’ve been following “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” you’re well aware that Kelsey Grammer’s soon-to-be-ex-wife Camille is kinda pissed that after 13 years of marriage, her hubby dropped her for a much younger woman named Kayte Walsh. And on top of that, he just bought them a $6.5 million NYC apartment with four bedrooms. One of Camille’s favorite things to whine about was how small their old NY apartment was. [TMZ]

We were just as curious as you as to what could cause Kelsey to divorce such a delightful woman, so we’ve rounded up the goods on Kelsey’s new obsession, Kayte! And no, she is not to be confused with Kate Walsh of “Private Practice.”

  1. The Friendly Skies. Kayte is a 29-year-old stewardess for Virgin Atlantic Airways. She is from Bristol originally and is 26 years younger than Kelsey. The two met on a flight to New York, before Kelsey had started divorce proceedings from Camille. He told her via text message and a “brief telephone call.” Camille has complained that Kelsey only communicates via email. Kelsey and Camille didn’t have a prenuptial agreement, so the former Playboy Playmate could get half of Kelsey’s estimated $80 million (he made $1.6 million per episode of “Frasier”) and their jointly owned production company, Grammernet Productions. Fortunately for Kayte, $40 million is still enough money that she won’t have to deal with tray tables and uniforms ever again! [Daily Mail, Astrochicks]
  2. Bad Daddy. Nobody knew who Kayte was until her dad, who is two years younger than Kelsey and is apparently a big fan of “Cheers” and “Frasier,” outed her to the Daily Mail. Pops told the paper, “I don’t know how long they have been together and I have not met him yet, but I’m looking forward to it. We just found out about her pregnancy a couple of days ago. I think they met in New York socially because she works for Virgin Airways and often stops over in America. The main thing is for them both to be happy and they are—they have just hit it off together.” [Starcasm]
  3. Time Flies. Kelsey and Camille’s divorce was announced on July 1st. About five weeks later, it was announced that Kelsey had a new girlfriend and she was pregnant. Unfortunately, Kayte had a miscarriage, which was announced in October. Camille said that she feels sad about the miscarriage but believes, “It’s all part of the cosmos — what goes around, comes around.” And I guess her karma for saying such a thing is that her husband is now engaged to Kayte and they’ve moved into their new apartment together? The baby would have been his fifth child. He has two daughters with Camille—Mason and Jude—and two daughters from previous relationships, Spencer and Greer. [TMZ]
  4. Footballer Family. Kayte’s father is ex-footballer Alan Walsh, who played with Bristol City and her brother Phil plays for League One side Dagenham & Redbridges. Kayte also has a younger sister named Sophie. I guess this means that if Kelsey hurts her, he’s got two tough dudes to deal with. [Daily Mail]
  5. Star Signs. Kelsey is a generous Pisces and, according to Kate’s MySpace profile, she’s an Aquarius. The love outcome for these two is not so favorable. One site said, “It is likely to end as soon as it started, maybe even earlier. The reason is that both of them look for entirely different qualities in their partner. He wants to have a close and intimate relationship, while she desires someone with whom she can go on adventures, explore and have fun.” Dun dun dun. [MySpace, I Love India]
