FRASIER star Kelsey Grammer's wedded bliss with his third wife Camille is a bittersweet experience for the actor - his eldest daughter is refusing to speak to him because of it.

The 48-year-old screen star and Camille, 35, exchanged nuptials in 1997 and are now the proud parents of MASON OLIVIA, who celebrates her second birthday next month (24OCT03).

But while the father-of-three's new family brings him much joy, 18-year-old SPENCER, his daughter with first wife DOREEN ALDERMAN, is distraught with the union.

Grammer says, "My eldest daughter is in New York City going to college but we're not speaking. It's one of those things.

"We've had some troubles since I got married and she was a teenager, of course. We did what we could to give her a good life. I think she's actually doing fairly well, but she's mad at me so we don't call.

"I think she's very angry at me, but I love my girl and maybe some day it'll be ok."
