Kelsey Grammer back home after heart attack

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former “Cheers” and “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer was released from a hospital in Hawaii on Wednesday, four days after suffering what was described as a mild heart attack, People magazine reported.

Grammer, 53, is “resting comfortably” at his home on Hawaii’s Big Island, People quoted the actor’s spokesman as saying.

He had chest pains on Saturday while paddle-boarding with his wife, Camille, and was taken to a hospital, where he was found to have suffered a heart attack.

Grammer was stricken a few weeks after the Fox network canceled his new show, “Back to You,” in which he starred as a pompous, womanizing TV news anchor. The series made it for only one season.

Grammer gained fame portraying the sherry-swilling shrink Dr. Frasier Crane for 20 years, initially as a co-star on the NBC comedy hit “Cheers” and then as the star of his own spinoff series.
