Grammer has been married three times. His first marriage to dance instructor Doreen Alderman spanned eight years, from 1982 to 1990, and produced one child, a daughter named Spencer. His second marriage, to stripper Leigh-Anne Csuhany, lasted one year (1992–1993). Grammer claims she was abusive and that, after talk of divorce, she attempted suicide by overdosing on Tylenol and wine, which resulted in the miscarriage of their child. Since August of 1997, Grammer has been married to Camille Donatacci, a former nude model. They have a son and a daughter together via a surrogate mother. Grammer has one additional daughter, Greer, born in 1992, with hair and makeup stylist Barrie Buckner.

Born in St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, Grammer moved to New Jersey with his mother after his parents' divorce. In 1968, when Kelsey was 13, his father, whom he had only met twice, was murdered on the front lawn of his home in the Virgin Islands; in 1975, his sister was raped and murdered after leaving a Red Lobster restaurant in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Kelsey, who was 20 at the time and enrolled in the Juilliard acting program, stopped attending classes and was expelled. In 1980, his twin half-brothers were killed in a shark attack while SCUBA diving.

In 1998, Grammer filed a lawsuit against Internet Entertainment Group, which Grammer claimed had stolen from his home a videotape of him having sex with a woman. IEG countersued Grammer, denying they were in possession of such a tape, and Grammer's suit was eventually dropped.

Grammer began drinking at age 9 and became a frequent abuser of alcohol. In 1988 he was sentenced to 30 days in jail for drunk driving and cocaine possession. He was again arrested for cocaine possession in August 1990 and sentenced to three years' probation, fined $500 and given 300 hours' community service. In January 1991 he was given an additional two years' probation for violating his original probation through additional cocaine use. In September 1996 he flipped his car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and subsequently checked in to the Betty Ford Clinic for 30 days.

In the mid-'90s Grammer was accused of statutory rape by the parents of his child’s 15-year-old babysitter, but a New Jersey grand jury declined to indict due to lack of physical evidence.

In 2005, Grammer fell off a stage while presenting a speech at Disneyland.

After publishing his autobiography, "So Far..." in 1995, he was sued by a former girlfriend for defamation of character and invasion of privacy.

Grammer says he constantly has supernatural experiences.

If he got elected, it sounds like he would fit right in...

Dear Alter Kaker,

It sounds like a lot of difficult stuff came his way early in life, and he didn't do that well with it.

I'm not sure I'd have done much better if I had a father and a sibling murdered, and then two more siblings dead all before I was 25.

Given all that, he managed to turn his life around.

I'll judge him on the issues, but I can readily look beyond his past.

Good afternoon.
"Grammer has been married three times...Grammer says he constantly has supernatural experiences."

Sounds like Senatorial materiel to me.

Glad he got off. We can only hope the teenager paid dearly for her accusations.
