Los Angeles: Kelsey Grammer`s split from former Playboy model Camille has been playing out in public and now she has hinted that her estranged husband is a cross-dresser.

The reality TV star made the claim during a guest spot on `shock jock` Howard Stern`s radio show, reported TMZ.

Camille who will reportedly pocket USD 50 million, half of the `Frasier` star`s fortune said that Kelsey was "perfect" for the drag queen role he is playing in Broadway musical La Cage Aux Folles.

"I don`t think he`s gay, I do think he likes being with women but there`s something between us that didn`t click. There`s another reason," said Camille.

When the radio host asked her if it was because he liked dressing in women`s clothes, the 42-year-old replied, "I didn`t say it! I don`t want to talk about that."

But Camille, one of the stars of the hit reality show `Real Housewives of Beverly Hills` went on to disclose more details.

When Stern made a joke about Grammer trying on her underwear, Camille said, "He has a little waist. I don`t know what to say!"

When Stern and co-host Quivers asked for more details on when the Frasier star began his alleged cross-dressing activities, Camille said, "That was a gift to me. That was a super, special surprise."

"I`m not discussing this now. I`m gonna be smacked with a lawsuit! You`ve got to ask his new (fiancee)," she said.

Kelsey`s spokesman refused to comment on Camille`s claims, only saying, "While it is not clear why Camille Grammer continues making public statements about her marriage to Kelsey, it is crystal clear that Kelsey will continue not responding, regardless of content."

He wed Camille, his third wife, in August, 1997, and they have two children together.

Camille filed for divorce from him in July, last year, just weeks before it emerged he was already in a relationship with a 29-year-old air hostess, who was then pregnant with his child.
