Camille Grammer was devastated when her husband of nearly 13 years, Kelsey Grammer, left her for a younger flight attendant in 2010, but now she’ll soon be laughing all the way to the bank. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star is “very close” to receiving a staggering $30 million from her ex, according to TMZ. The amount is 50 percent of the estimated $60 million the Grammers will likely get from selling three of the homes they have on the market, including a 17,000 square-foot mansion in Malibu for $17.9 million (the other two are in Beverly Hills and Beaver Creek, Colorado).
According to the report, when Kelsey, 57, and Camille, 44, married in 1997, he was practically broke, despite his success on “Cheers” and “Frasier,” and she helped him get back in the black.
The $30 million Kelsey will reportedly pay his ex is quite a bit more than what he said he felt he “owed” her in a recent interview for Oprah Winfrey’s “Next Chapter.” The “Boss” actor admitted that he did “Real Housewives” with Camille – who he refuses to refer to by name – “as a going-away present” because “I did believe I owed something to that person, that I owed fame. She had given up so much to just endure this horrible life she had with me."
But now Camille has a much happier (and soon, much richer) life. She’s been dating hunky attorney Dimitri Charalambopoulous for the past year. “Everything is great,” she said recently. “We get along really well. I care about him very much and we're enjoying each other's company."
