Looks like a friends with benefits hook up to me. Nothing wrong with that, considering the woman he loves has apparently moved on. Might as well work off some of that tension with a rebound fling, before moving on with his life.
With Frenzy? Like I said in the issue review thread, he's got to hit rock bottom before he can climb back out. A few self-loathing romps with her should do the trick.
Of course, there's always the chance that Gage might try to turn this into a true love affair, and claim that all important conversations between them happened off panel... but no writer would be that poor, would they?
If both Gage and Liu have him hooking up in their books then I could care less who it was with as long as both Cece and Frenzy are not taking it serious or Gambit is in some way misleading them. But fundamentally, his hooking up with Frenzy and ultimately Cece when AXM starts seems to support Gambit being a flirt rather than tied down with any one person which is a good thing.
Gambit is pimping it, he will move on to the next. It would be cool if he boned Rachael.
They had Rogue and Gambit get back together after she left him to die in Antarctica by retconning it so that it was Gambit condemning himself. Banging Magneto seems less severe to me.
They've already established that Rogue is acting under the influence of Legacy's mind to some degree - though that makes no sense, since Legacy and Gambit were obviously attracted to each other, and Magneto essentially used her for his purposes. Anyway, they could play up the fact that she hasn't been in her right mind; they could have her come back to her senses, and realize with horror who/what she's done. She apologizes and explains to Gambit; he accepts, perhaps with some reluctance. They decide to take it a day at a time, since that worked well for them before.
For bonus points, they could draw some sort of parallel to Death's possession of Gambit.
A better and more elegant treatment would take a few issues and additional nuance, but they could do it in one without doing great violence to either character.

Honestly, I don't want to see him fix his relationship with Rogue. Let it go down in history as his biggest heart-break, but one he moves on from. Rogue can continue to be the default love interest of whoever the writer's favorite is, and Gambit can carry on with Frenzy in Legacy while dating Cece and having homoerotic subtext with wolverine in Astonishing.

McKenstry those with the most opinions often have the fewest facts.
Barack Obama There's not a liberal America and a conservative America - there's the United States of America.
Christopher Yost Cyclops = Awesome and Right, while Xavier = USELESS JERK-O! Viva la Cyclops!
Facts are the enemy of truth.
You gonna get us out of here. With that tight-ass Wolverine outfit on. Now, let's make it happen, asshole
YOST: Okay, it's not Jean Grey. Nobody likes her
What happens in the future is a long way off.
I hope Gage gets to using Gambit's power creatively soon.
