Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman have separated after more than 30 years of marriage, DeVito's rep confirmed to the Ministry of Gossip on Monday. The couple met and moved in together more than 40 years ago, while he was working on Broadway. They married in January 1982, during the run of the sitcom "Taxi," and the first of their three children was born a little more than a year later.  Perlman moved on from "Taxi" to become a fixture on "Cheers," which marked its 30th anniversary last month.

Turns out that actress Rhea Perlman, perhaps best known for her role as venom-tongued barmaid Carla Tortelli on "Cheers" (for which she was nominated for 10 Emmy Awards and won four), is deep into yoga and meditation. When it came to redoing the spacious bedroom in the 1930s Wallace Neff home in Beverly Hills that she shares with her husband, actor Danny DeVito, one of her primary goals was to create a separate space in which to do daily meditation and yoga. Perlman called in Genevieve Carter of Carter Design West in Los Angeles to refresh the master bedroom suite and create the new space.

Rhea Perlman called from Hollywood the other day--this sort of thing happens all the time--hoping to drum up interest in "Pearl," the CBS sitcom in which she stars. The show isn't performing terribly well in the ratings and, Perlman admitted, hasn't been all it should be in the quality department, either. "We found we kept doing the pilot over and over," Perlman said.

With a show called "Kirstie," it would be easy to dwell on TV Land's "Pet Sematary"-like attempt to resurrect the career of sitcom star Kirstie Alley, not to mention Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards. But here is what matters about the new half-hour comedy: It revolves around a Broadway diva. A Broadway diva! As in a woman who has made a career starring in hit Broadway plays, a feat that was becoming rare even when Bette Davis played Margo Channing. Who is this Madison "Maddie" Banks that Alley is playing?
