At this point, I’m starting to wonder if there’s any point in continuing to sweep the pieces of my shattered heart off the floor. Not only am I still recovering from the news that Rhea Perlman and Danny DeVito are divorcing, but now I’m forced to come to terms with rumors that he suffers from a wandering eye.
Of all the diagnoses I would have given this couple on WebMD, wandering eye would not be one of them.
According to Radar Online, a source close to the family (or probably now, formally close to the family) reveals that things haven’t been well in paradise in about 10 years. Possibly due to the stress of fleeing the country and giving custody of their magical daughter Matilda to her emotionally-abused teacher who will need years of therapy to cope with her Aunt Trunchbull. Or maybe not. Maybe it’s something not related the plot of the greatest movie they ever made together.
“Danny can be quite the flirt and because of his powerful status in Hollywood, he’s not ashamed to abuse his position and chat-up young, aspiring woman looking to make it in the industry. Despite his reputation as a lovable, funny guy in movies and on TV, Danny’s actually quite the womanizer. And, like a lot of red-blooded males, if he sees an attractive girl in a coffee shop or walking down the street, he will give her the eye. After years of turning a blind eye to it, Rhea finally snapped. She had enough of his bad-boy behavior and wanted an end to their marriage.”
At least when Amy Poehler and Will Arnett drove divorce stakes into our hearts, they did it amicably. But with Rheanny, we have to hear about wandering eyes and womanizing and all kinds of horrible words that make me dislike Danny.
Does a good Hollywood marriage exist? Is anyone happy? Who’s even left now that we care about?
I suppose Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy are our next great hope when it comes to relationships we can believe in, and that’s pretty bleak.
