Talking points

Kelsey and Camille Grammer

All was not well in Grammer marriage

Kelsey Grammer thinks that ex-wife Camille Grammer had some pretty tough expectations when they first got together. “I think she married me because I was ‘Frasier,’” Kelsey tells Piers Morgan in an interview. “[Frasier] had this great wonderful life … he was stylish … and just a little gay … Kelsey Grammer is a different story.” The actor also claims that his ex-wife’s involvement on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was something of a “parting gift” from him. “It was a very difficult marriage and a very difficult decade,” he says. “I thought, ‘So long, here’s a present for you.’”

Clooney’s recent PDA

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler are upping the ante when it comes to red carpet displays of affection, according to Us Weekly. Most recently? Hitting Paris for the French premiere of his new film, “The Descendants,” with Keibler on his arm — just as she was early this week in New York. Clooney and Keibler “gazed adoringly at each other” while stopping for photographs on the way into the theater.

Witherspoon hearts Aniston

Jennifer Aniston was honored at Elle magazine’s 18th annual Women in Hollywood Tribute, and her presenter,  pal Reese Witherspoon, couldn’t contain her enthusiasm for the former “Friends” star, according to Us Weekly. “On one hand, she is this gorgeous, breathtaking beauty that men lose their thought process and their speech patterns [over] — I’ve actually seen this, it’s incredible when they see her — and, on the other hand, she is a woman who lets you in,” Witherspoon gushed. “There’s not that many people actually that have this incredible combination. You just want to get your nails done with her, and you want to make out with her at the same time … at least I do.”
