(Newser) – Blame the Real Housewives franchise for Kelsey Grammer’s divorce. His wife of 13 years, Camille Donatacci, filed yesterday citing “irreconcilable differences”—and a source tells the New York Daily News those differences center around her intention to star in the upcoming Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “He's a control freak, so he didn't like her joining the show. But this is still a surprise,” the source says.

Grammer himself tweeted the news, explaining that “things fell apart between us. That is all. Camille did not want this but has made a very difficult decision and I respect her for it.” He went on to ask for tweets about Camille to be kind, since “she is the mother of my children.” Donatacci, a former Playboy model, wants physical custody of their two kids.
