The two met in 1971 when Rhea went to see a stage performance in which her friend co-acted with Danny. The two were introduced after the show and their love story began from there. Before they got married on January 28, 1982, they had lived together for eleven long years.

Rhea is known for her role in the TV series Cheers which ran from 1982 – 1993.
Till their “amicable” separation in 2017, their marriage was one of Hollywood’s longest marriage. Danny and Rhea were married for 35 long years.
