Perhaps there's something in the air in the green room, because the strangest things seem to happen on Piers Morgan's talk show.
The latest disappearing act was pulled on Wednesday by scheduled guest Kelsey Grammer, who apparently caught a photo of his ex-wife, Camille, during an opening segment of "Piers Morgan Tonight" and then decided to make an exit.
"Extraordinary," Morgan tweeted. "Never had this happen before."
The CNN host recalled having "a very friendly chat with Kelsey backstage," with the actor saying that "he was really looking forward to the interview."
While Morgan joked that perhaps Grammer caught some of Simon Cowell's "X Factor" in the green room and started to feel ill, he didn't seem to find the actor's walk-out all that funny.
"I like Kelsey Grammer personally, but this was a shockingly unprofessional thing to do," Morgan posted. "I wasn't even going to mention his ex-wife!"
But this isn't the first time that a guest has gone AWOL: Last summer, Christine O'Donnell bailed on "Piers Morgan Tonight" in the middle of the interview, followed by former "X Factor" host Steve Jones pretending to "storm off," as he'd seen it been done before.
Sometimes even when a guest does stay, the conversation can grow so contentious that you're surprised when they *don't* make an exit, as was the case with Robert Blake.
Rep. Todd Akin, meanwhile, didn't even show up for his "Piers Morgan Tonight" interview at all.
These upsets don't appear to have ruffled Morgan's feathers, though. The host tweeted Thursday that he'll be on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" later, and assured Fallon that "unlike my guest Mr Grammer last night, I won't run away."
