Camille Grammer: 'I Have Learned To Forgive Kelsey'

Camille Grammer has finally forgiven ex-husband Kelsey Grammer after their messy split.

“I had to go to hell to get to heaven,” the 43-year-old reality star said in a Hollywood Life interview that was posted on Tuesday. "At times I didn’t think I had it in me, but I do. When Kelsey left me, here I was this single mom with two kids. I was terrified. Of course I had help and the support of my family, but it was still very scary.”

The pair split in February 2011 after 14 years of marriage and two children together. Kelsey allegedly left Camille for flight attendant Kayte Walsh, who he'd go on to marry in February 2011. The "Frasier" star, who has called Camille's TV career his ""parting gift" to her, announced in January that he and Walsh are expecting twins.

Camille has since moved on with boyfriend Dimitri Charalambopoulos and told Hollywood Life that she's learned to forgive Kelsey with the help of a surprising confidante.

"I have learned to forgive Kelsey and have appreciation,” she explained. “Forgiveness and gratitude are so important. If you don’t forgive, it will eat you up and make you sick. I read a lot of books on forgiveness and went to a spiritual psychologist. Actually my spiritual psychologist is Tammi, one of Kelsey’s ex-fiancées," Camille said, referring to self-help author Tammi Baliszewski, who was engaged to Grammer in the '90s.
