Kelsey Grammer, 55, wants to set the record straight about his engagement to 29-year-old Kayte Walsh.

The former Frasier comedian is in the process of divorcing Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality star, Camille Donatacci, 42. He has recently undergone public ridicule for announcing his engagement to Walsh early this month, before finalizing his divorce from Donatacci. The actor, however, feels no need to apologize. "Kayte and I are marrying because we are engaged, and we are engaged because we are in love and see no reason to postpone our happiness any longer," he told People.

He also wants to put an end to any speculation about his upcoming wedding plans, revealing only that the couple is "planning something we wish to be a private affair among several of our friends. Anything else is conjecture and false. Kayte and I are the only reliable source for this story. End of story." No specific date for the nuptials has yet been released. —KIMBERLY STEELE
