Yes, you read right. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ former househusband Kelsey Grammer wants to trade acting for politics!

Where does this sudden interest in civics come from? Well, one might think Grammer’s political interest stems from his new gig as mayor of Chicago in his latest TV venture Boss. But Grammer says he decided he wanted to explore politics off screen three years ago after suffering a heart attack.

“I have had a great career and extraordinary opportunities," he told the New York Post. "But I look at my political aspirations as that last piece of my life — where I hope to do something good for people and pay back a little.”

But does Kelsey have what it takes? Here’s what we know about him: He’s not the most loyal man alive (he’s had four wives so far) and he’s a cheater. Actually, that sounds about right for a career in politics!

Kelsey thinks he can make it work, too. He told The Hollywood Reporter he’d have to have a “resilient ego” and a “narcissistic personality” to pull it off. Well, if the shoe fits...

What do you think, Wetpainters? If Kelsey Grammer’s name was on the ballot, would you cast a vote for him?
