Kelsey Grammer might be having a mid-life crisis according to people in the know (and Radar Online).
“I seriously think Kelsey is going through a mid-life crisis,” a source tells RadarOnline.com. “He has married a woman who is twenty-five years younger than him, he recently got his first tattoo, of her name, he decides to renew his wedding vows after being married for a little over a year? This behavior is far away from the Kelsey that I have known for years, it’s like he is reliving his youth. He used to be such a private person.
A private person, by the way, who has had previous arrests for drunk driving and cocaine possession. He’s been married four times too. His second marriage was to a stripper who claimed he was abusive and fired a gun at him. Wouldn’t you want to lay low too?
According to Wikipedia, a midlife crisis is a term coined in 1965 by Elliott Jaques stating a time where adults come to realize their own mortality and how much time is left in their life. People may reassess their achievements in terms of their dreams. The result may be a desire to make significant changes in core aspects of day-to-day life or situation, such as in career, work-life balance, marriage, romantic relationships, large expenditures, or physical appearance. For example, one might purchase an expensive sports car, start getting spray tans, or get a Russian or Vietnamese mail order bride in an attempt to convey a false sense of success.
So, yeah, it’s possible this is a mid-life crisis. I just don’t think a gramp stamp is necessary unless you want to feel like you’ve still got it going on. But he obviously had been crazy for some time. Who gets busted for coke, fires a gun at a stripper wife, and then repackages themselves as a conservative Republican who may or may not run for Congress? In fact he promotes RightNetwork, a conservative start-up American television network and endorsed Michele Bachmann for the Republican nomination for president in 2012. Not even the Duggars, nutbags in their own right, think Michelle Bachmann is legit.
I think if he is really going on this whole mid-life crisis route he’s got to mix it up a bit. For example, start a boy band. Just Kelsey and four other kids ranging between the ages of 19-23. He could be the “wise” guy in the band with gray chest hair and orthopedic shoes. Or agree to do the cover of Playgirl in meatball huggers and a walker. That would really show America that he’s still young and very hot.
