First Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, and now this?
TMZ reported Monday morning that Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman have confirmed that they are splitting after 30 years of marriage. Let me repeat: 30 YEARS OF MARRIAGE. The couple also have 3 children together, ages 24, 27, and 29.
Consider my heart shattered. In an industry of Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian-quickie marriages, there are few Hollywood marriages that stand the test of time and seem completely genuine. And yet, these tiny, perfect human beings have captivated us and managed to maintain a lovely under the radar relationship for years.
My twitter feed has been… well, atwitter, with a mix of horror and disappointment, in reaction to the news, along with the proclamation that love is dead ever since around 11:30 this morning when the story broke. No official statement has been released by the couple, as of yet, and there’s been no word on whether a divorce is to follow.
As Madonna once so eloquently asked, “Come on, girls. Do you believe in love?”
No, Madonna. No, I do not.
