Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman divorcing

Article says they lived together for 11 years and have been married for 30.

Wonder if we'll find out the reason...

by Anonymousreply 2910/08/2012

Sorry to hear of this. They've been together for a long time.

What's the point of splitting up when you're that old? Just kill each other and be done with it at that point.

I just saw this. It makes me sad for some reason. What do they think they will be able to do alone that they can't do now?

Isn't little DeVito a big drunk? He either wouldn't quit the booze or he traded Rhea in for a younger model (probably, literally.)

It always seemed to me that an upswing in fame can be very stressful on couples. Devito was part of a hit show and some things- parties, drinks, drugs, women whatever become a lot more handy when they fame is kicked up a notch.

He seemed a little crazy doing interviews in the UK when he was on the West End earlier this year.

Danny has serious substance abuse issues and it probably got worse while he was working in London on "Sunshine Boys". I'm sure Rhea's been fed up for a long time, anyway.

He's drunk and she's mean and sometimes they trade places. I wonder why they stayed as long as they did.

I tend to agree with OP that something must have happened to make the rut even more unlivable.

Maybe they waited until their children were grown and settled with families of their own.

I'm crying as I use a step stool to reach my computer to type.

Back in the 80s, I saw them out with two of their children (they have 3) several times. He seemed like a doting father, totally focused on the kids.

My partner and I sat a couple of rows behind them at the (then) Laemmle Theatre at Crescent Heights & Sunset for a screening of "Mrs Brown" a few years age.

You probably had no trouble seeing the screen r12.

You know somebody cheated.

by Anonymousreply 1410/08/2012

With who(m), R14? One advantage to having a physically unattractive partner is that few, if any people are interested in stealing him/her from you, even just for an hour.

I don't get DeVito's reputation as a funnyman. He's grating, obnoxious and an attention whore.

by Anonymousreply 1610/08/2012

You'd think so, r15. One would think.

I know it's not intuitive, but ugly people get laid every day, God bless them.

by Anonymousreply 1710/08/2012

Well I wanted to say HE cheated but I didn't want to just jump to that conclusion. But ugly guys with money get laid as much as they want as long as they can show they've got money. No problem there.

This makes me so happy!

Gay men on Datalounge never seem to understand why long-term couples break up.

Sometimes people just get sick and tired of each other.

Getting sick and tired of each other can happen after five years or fifty years of marriage.

I'm just glad this thread isn't marked 'NSFW'

How do you know you are responding to gay men r20? (and you sound quite condescending by the way)

by Anonymousreply 2210/08/2012

They presumably have the money from both of their careers to live happily apart without divorcing unless one of them wants to set up house with someone new.

I guess time will tell.

R12, I wonder if that was the same day I saw Rhea with the kids in the Virgin Megastore buying video games. That shopping center used to be great for celebrity spotting - maybe it still is but I don't ever go since Virgin closed.

Maybe they accidentally caught a glimpse of themselves side by side in a mirror and realized finally how disgusting they looked.

Didn't Red Skelton get divorced after 50 years of marriage?

It's pretty funny when someone thinks "I'd rather be fucking alone for the rest of my life instead of being with you for one more day".

Honest to god, those two were the last H'wood long term couple I could name. Seriously is there anyone in H'wood left who've been together for more than say, 15 years?

(actually, I just realized that David Hyde Pierce and his partner have been together for over 20 years...)

Well of course there is Don and M.

Tom Hanks and his sow.

Julianne Moore and her husband, seriously.
