In its infinite wisdom, CNN has hired Camille Donatacci
--whom you know better as Kelsey Grammer
's most recent ex-wife, Camille Grammer
--to co-host its Oscar red-carpet coverage Sunday.

Camille spun a dancing career that landed her in several music videos and Club MTV
in the 1980s into a modeling career in the '90s that included appearing nude in several Playboy
publications. That led to a brief soft-porn career in flicks such as Marilyn Chambers'
Bedtime Stories, New York Nights
She met Kelsey Grammer on a blind date in 1996. Despite his having already been engaged thrice before and married twice before--Kelsey says his second wife, a stripper, was abusive, shot a gun at him
and, after talk of divorce a year into their marriage, attempted
suicide, causing a miscarriage--Camille married him in
Malibu in 1997. Via a surrogate mother, they had two children to go along with the Frazier
star's other three.
