Is nothing sacred?

One of Hollywood's longest running -- and most admired -- couples has thrown in the towel. Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, married for 30 years, have separated.

DeVito's rep, Stan Rosenfeld, confirmed to FOX411 that the pair, who have three grown children, are going their separate ways.

I guess their patience ran a little short.

too bad. hope they can reconcile. I don’t speak as a fan - although I am — but as someone who admires folks who can make a marriage in Hollywood last for three decades.

Friends commented that they recently seemed a little short with each other.

They don’t do “high fives” to each other, they do “low fives”.

It seems one thing Hollywood does not like. A successful marriage.

A little short tempered are we?

Don’t sell us short.

We tried to find other sources of humor but came up short.

We’ll try again and be back to you shortly.

That’s about the long and short of it.

Or in this case, the short and short of it.

Remember back in band, gymnastics, ROTC, the Army, Marines ~ wherever ~ and they lined everybody up by height, there was always this one guy at the short end of the line ~ but no one ever thought anything about the guy next to him ~ usually to his right ~ but let me tell you, I care about these little people ~ they keep me feeling TALL ~ that, and a visit to a Japanese-American folk festival, or the JAL terminal.

So, I see this thing on one of my favorite actors ~ Br'r DeVito hissef' ~ and I"m flipping over there to check out the Roloff family.

Whew! They're still OK and have 6 more shows in the can.

There's a slightly famous lady in Northern Virginia ~ Viet Namese ~ she worked at the Merifield MPC ~ had to have a special stand to let her stand up at a distribution case, or to sit comfortably at a console on an LSM. Met her at the funeral of a fellow who'd been her old boyfriend years back.

A couple of postal supervisors took to teasing her by using her for DWARF TOSS. She filed an EEO complaint ~ and won; at the same time this exceedingly far leftwing ol'gal who'd been elected to Congress around here for a short time ~ Leslie Byrne ~ a good friend of Jim Moran (the drunken wife beater ~ for reference) decided that she just had to defend those poor supervisors from that 'midget'!

Leslie is slime.

Their marriage was a microcosm of all the small things wrong with Hollywood, from a family standpoint. Sure, their 30-year union dwarfed other Left Coast marriages, but in the end, it mattered little.

By the way - That’s a nice graphic but your post is a bit short on text.

DeVito doesn't need to act.

His Producer/Director Credits will keep him fat and happy for many years.

Pulp Fiction, Hoffa, Erin Brokovich, Get Shorty, Be Cool, Garden State.

through most of the 90s they were working together. They rented themselves out to stand on the top of wedding cakes. It was a good gig but then Devito started getting real acting jobs again and it blew the whole thing, and thats when the tensions began.

So what? I expect *nothing* in the way of decency,responsibility,normality,respect for tradition,respect for vows from *anybody* in showbiz.Those in showbiz who *do* have those qualities are the “freaks”.

Was Danny caught waddling around with another woman?

That’s what happens to fading beauty queens and erotic book cover male models. A marriage of lust can only last 40-41 years, then as quickly as it started , it is over.

I just watched Pulp Fiction last week. That is one of my favorite movies and when it came out I thought it was very original.

If you could care less, then you do care at least a little bit, right? ;-)

I think you mean that you couldn't care less.

My thoughts as well. Very few Hollywood marriages last that long, it's sad to see one of such long longevity end. I hope they treat each other kindly.

In my case it was either divorce or suicide. Curiously enough, murder never crossed my mind.

I think I chose the correct path.
