Rhea Perlman is very happy about her relationship with Danny DeVito, now that they’re separated.
The actress was on “Watch What Happens Live” on Thursday and a caller asked how she is able to maintain such a good relationship with her ex.
“I don’t know why it’s difficult for other people, but Danny and I have always loved each other,”
“We were together for 40 years,” she added. “40 years is a long time. You might have to do something else.”
Perlman did make clear that she and DeVito haven’t actually gotten a divorce, though. They are still married, though they are separated and live apart from each other.
Also on the show, Perlman talked about Shelley Long’s decision to leave “Cheers” in the middle of its run.
Asked if there was friction between Long and the rest of the cast, Perlman said, “There was a little bit. She left and then we had Kirstie Alley, and life moved on.”
