Now, I don't know about you, but if were planning to spend $50,000 or so remodeling my kitchen, I think I might look at some color samples, perhaps some photos, and if available a showroom to help me make such major decisions. Apparently that isn't the way things work in the Grammer household. Kelsey Grammer is being sued for about $150,000 because he failed to pay the company that remodeled his kitchen. Three times. That's right, the company totally remodeled the kitchen three times because it seems Kelsey's wife couldn't be bothered to make the effort to find out how it would look prior to the installation.
There was nothing wrong with the work performed. There were no drunk guys ransacking the house looking for sex tapes to sell. Nope. The only problem seemed to be that Camille didn't like the color. Not the first time, the second time or the third time. After the third time the company just gave up.
Hey, Camille this isn't telling your husband to move the couch twenty times so you can get a better angle to see yourself in the mirror. This is a project that took about two weeks each time. Two weeks and $50,000 and she couldn't bother figuring out if she was going to like the color before they put it in. It's not like she uses the damn kitchen in the first place. Do you honestly believe that Camille has ever heated anything in that kitchen other than possibly microwaving some wax to for her stache?
It's people like Camille that give celebrities and their spouses a bad name. That and the fact that they think because they are not "everyday people" that they can go ahead and stiff the company for the work as well.
