After thirty years of marriage Danny DeVito separated from Rhea Perlman and he’s now dating… Kirstie Alley.
DeVito, 67, and Perlman, 64, married in January 1982 and have three children together. They met in 1970 after Perlman went to see a friend in the Broadway play “The Shrinking Bride” and ended up charmed by DeVito, who was also in the production.
In a 1983 interview with People Magazine, Perlman said DeVito “was a lot more fun and a lot more sexy” than men she had previously dated. DeVito recalled, ”She was vibrant, with a great sense of humor, and real warm.” The two moved in together after two weeks.
After 13 years as a couple, Perlman told People their relationship was so solid, “you’d really have to work hard at breaking us up at this point.”
Years later, when asked about the secret to his enduring marriage, DeVito reportedly replied, “Love. Love. I mean, really. You know what? Who knows. The secret to success is to try to never figure that out.”
But now… WWN has learned that DeVito, former star of Taxi, is already dating former Cheers star, Kirstie Alley (61). “They’ve always had a thing for each other and Danny didn’t waste any time trying to hook up with Kirstie. For fans of Cheers and Taxi, it’s heaven,” said a longtime fan of Cheers and Taxi.
Kirstie, who continues to struggle with her weight, has recently revitalized her career with stints on Dancing With The Stars and Celebrity Pie Eating.
She met Danny on the set of his new movie, Christopher Columbus. She plays Christopher’s harolot.
In unrelated new, there are rumors floating around Hollywood that DeVito is Honey Boo Boo’s real father.
