Camille Grammer Lists Malibu Manse

SELLER: Camille Grammer*
LOCATION: Malibu, CA
PRICE: $17,500,000
SIZE: 6,645 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Listen chickens, we've been holed up all weekend in Minneapolis with our dear old pals Chow Lee and The Laundress—not to mention our boozy, high-maintenance b.f.f. Fiona Trambeau—so we're exhausted and a little out of the celebrity real estate loop. However, before we head to the airport with an almost sober Miss Trambeau and wing our way home to the west coast we've got a wee tidbit to share about Camille Grammer—third ex-wife of sit-com star Kelsey Grammer and current cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills–who's listed the family compound in Malibu, CA with an asking price of $17,500,000.

Property records show Mister and third ex-Missus Grammer purchased the 4.77 acre estate, tucked into the back of the guard-gated (and star-stocked) Serra Retreat, way back in May 1998 for $4,500,000.

Listing information isn't specific but property records we peeped show the main house was originally built in 1969, measures 6,645 square feet and includes four bedrooms and six bathrooms. What listing information does reveal is that the main residence includes formal living room and dining rooms; a Wolfgang Puck-designed kitchen with two center work islands, exposed antique wood timbers, and commercial-style appliances; a ocean view master suite; wood-paneled library; family room; and Creston-engineered home theater equipped with 12 (or more) brown leather seats, an over-sized projection screen, attached bathroom and separate kitchen.

The gated and laboriously landscaped grounds include a detached guest house (with multiple bedrooms, living room, large kitchen, 5-car garage, and roof top deck); free-form swimming pool and at least two spas; nine stall barn and dressage riding ring; lighted tennis court; and a lily pond.

We're not sure where third ex-Missus Grammer plans to decamp—or perhaps she already has vacated the premises—but the former couple still owns an approximately 8,500 square foot ski chalet on 1.67 acres in Avon, CO currently listed at $6,995,000 as well as a 10,567 square foot mansion with 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles currently on the market with a $16,995,000 price tag. The former couple's former house in the Hamptons was finally sold in May 2011 for $9,995,000 after first being listed in fall 2007 with a substantially higher asking price of $16,100,000.

Mister Grammer, who seems to spend the bulk of his time in New York City with his fourth wife, recently spent $6,500,000 on a new west coast outpost in the form of a 6,000+ square foot Spanish Colonial Revival-style residence in the flats of Beverly Hills.

*The property is owned through a trust and it's not clear to Your Mama if Mister Grammer or third ex-Missus Grammer—who remained in residence after their bitter split—is the legal owner of the property.

Is it me or do all these celebrity homes start to look the same? Too large, too impersonal, too grand. Granted, we have also seem some wonderful places but "homes" such as these, just seem so wrong. The taste level is a big zero.

I would spruce up Holmby Hills and move in there, if I was her. Isnt she in a relationship? Maybe she is going to live with him? Any word on the Maloof home now they are reported going splitsville?

I'm not a fan of properties on the hills. Queen Camille should back to Beverly Hills where she belongs.

Apparently, Kelsey had almost no money when he hooked up with Camille. She is supposedly the mastermind behind his more vast bank account and property portfolio, this according to Howard Stern anyway.

Yo Mama,

Staging Lady in a Pink Toyota told us our two Barcaloungers, with builded-in beverage holes, pointed at our big screen TV gotta go. So please ask Pink Lady how come it's O.K. to have twelve (or more) of them pointed at an oversized projection screen?

Hey Mama, Camille Grammer is not a current cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Camille is no longer a housewife on the new upcoming third season that premieres this fall. Camille will be seen on the show a little because she will be at some of the same events as the housewives but she is not a main cast member anymore. She was replaced by Mohamed Hadid's exwife who is David Foster's current wife.

Douche he may be, but Kelsey does have decent taste in real estate, though this place runs a bit to the "beige and boring" side. I know it's a Malibu thing to do, but not feeling all that woodwork either, yet the grounds are lovely.

Mama, Camille is actually a favorite of mine on RHOBH, but I loved the smackdown you posted to her during the first season. Must go find and repost!

"This poor Camille person, all fake boobs, blond weave and self-helpy self-righteousness, had the guts and gall to get up on the national tee-vee and whine about how difficult and exhausting it is to be a mother and wife when you have 6 homes, 4 nannies for 2 elementary school aged children, a couple of personal assistants, and a house manager or two not to mention a shapely male tennis pro with whom she flirts like she's a dog in heat. Bitch, pleeze. Do not even go there, gurl. Listen to Your Mama here Camille because we are about to offer you some free and sage advice: Nobody, and we mean no body at all, wants to hear about your silly, rich ladee trophy wife problems. We suggest you just clam up that over-Botoxed mug of yours and try to enjoy your last few minutes of fame as the former wife and baby momma of a shockingly rich and tired ol' sitcom star. We can understand how you would want to be known as more than just Kelsey Grammer's (ex)wife but you are not doing yourself any favors, ladee, by acting a damn fool on the tee-vee and invoking Kelsey's Grammer's name every 47 damn seconds. Okay? Get it together now. Seriously."

Classic! Mama, you kill me.

10:22 you are not going to like me for this, but your grammar could so with some touching up:

"...if I were she...." (if requires the subjunctive---were not was---and the case of I and she must match hence she not her).

Ah those red dining room chairs from the Dinner Party from Hell.. hehe.. They have excellent taste this house is very well done.

Petra. Whats up chick? Relax. Not a big Cammi fan, but she did have a huge part in Grammers success, and was a partner in business as well as in his life. A successful partnership until he hooked up with the first class flight attendant/yoga teacher. I doubt either one of them is easy to live with, but HE ended their marriage in a most undignified way. Especially with two sons left in the reckage.

None of the Housewives on any of these shows are any good. Camille calmed down in the second season, but apparently doesn't want to expose her kids to the cameras.

Maybe she came to her senses after all?

So overprice. Good luck!

A really hot property we've got here. The ex Desperate Housewives cast might be desperate in getting the property sold. But with all the arrangement, decors, and amenities - it is one luxury property that anyone would be desperate of owning next.

I do believe I heard that Cammi cakes got this house in the deevorce.

Nice home. I would have to have a hazmat crew come in for a week and scrape and remove his Republican pedophile scumbag aura from the home.

I love the grounds and landscaping although you don't see it in any of these photos. A beautiful property unworthy of the hag who lives there.

What makes this property worth 4x as much as it was back in 1998?? Seems we're still in a bubble, folks.
