Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman shocked fans last year when the longtime Hollywood couple announced they had separated. But thanks to some sweet courting from Danny and a not-so-subtle push from their kids, the couple has fallen in love all over again.
In the new issue of Closer — on newsstands now — insiders share details about the couple's newfound bliss after taking a break.
“He took her for granted for far too long, but now those days are over,” a family friend reveals to Closer. “They are better than ever.”
In fact, Danny spent months wooing his wife back with flowers, poetry and even a romantic weekend at a New York City hotel. “He had champagne sent up to the room and breakfast in bed. They are true soul mates,” the friend shares.
Even the kids helped reunite the duo, encouraging them to work through their problems and hosting Sunday night family dinners. Now those dinners have been traded for date nights — cellphones not allowed. “To me, having a night home with no pressure to do anything is the best way to spend an evening!” Rhea tells Closer.
Asked about her upcoming holiday plans, Rhea reveals that she and Danny are headed to the Galapagos Islands. “It’s one of those trips,” Rhea sighs, “that I have always wanted to do.”
