Michael Douglas brokering DeVito-Perlman reconciliation

Radar claims the actor is hell-bent on reuniting the estranged pair. 

Hooray for Michael Douglas! The veteran actor is single-handedly trying to rescue love and not just by proving that, despite absolutely no historical precedent, an obscenely wealthy, older man can land a much younger, beautiful wife.

No. This time, Michael is channeling his formidable love-rescuing efforts into saving the marriage of Danny DeVitoand Rhea Perlman, a couple whose dramatic split this past October resonated like a bullet tearing through the upper left thigh of happily ever after.

Radar Online reports that the Oscar-winning star is urging the former marrieds to give their union another shot, because, like everyone else in the entire universe could tell them, they are meant to be together and the world will not be right until they reunite.

“When Michael found out Danny and Rhea were splitting up he told Danny he thought he was making a big mistake,” a source who may or may not be connected to Michael’s publicity team tells Radar.

“Michael loves Rhea and he told Danny he will never find another woman quite like her. They complement each other perfectly and are the best of friends.

 “He said he should do whatever it takes to win Rhea back and come to his senses fast before it is too late. It’s because of Michael they are talking to each other.”

Naturally, much of this depends on Rhea’s willingness to put up with Danny’s notorious and somewhat creepy wandering eye. Creepy because… well, when one thinks of an insatiable sex monster, Danny DeVito is quite possibly the last image one wishes to conjure up.

But Michael is reportedly convinced he can help broker a peace agreement between the two and has casually let it slip that the two are now back in communication thanks to his mediation skills.

“They are still trying to work things out, and for the moment they are just good friends, but they are heading in the right direction,” the source continues.

“Michael is well positioned to talk about marriage. He’s been with Catherine (Zeta-Jones) for 12 years now and he learned a lot from his failed first marriage to Diandra (Luker).”

I don’t care if this is a well-positioned bit of PR fluff. Make it happen, Michael! Love is depending on you.

Why does Kelsey have to make things so difficult?

We already know Kelsey Grammer won’t say his ex-wife Camille’s name. He doesn’t explain why, just that he refuses to say it. Weirdo. But you know who else can’t utter “Camille”? Their kids.

Anderson Cooper interviewed Camille on his daytime show, and Kelsey’s real-life Lilith talks about how hard it is sharing custody with Frasier Crane himself.

“It very difficult to co-parent with someone who won’t speak to you, text you or email you,” Camille told Anderson on today’s show (via E! Online). “He doesn’t speak to me at all. So it’s very, very difficult because I’ve reached out to him. I think it’s very important to be amicable to raise children and he refuses to. There’s just so much I can do at this point.”

Camille added: “I mean, we were best friends and I miss my best friend. So, it would be nice. I know it’s never going to be that relationship or that friendship for whatever reason, but just for us to get along, for the sake of our children.”

Instead, they communicate through their lawyers, “so we are spending a fortune just to try to co-parent, which is ridiculous.” What’s even more ridiculous is that their kids can’t even say their mom’s name when he’s around.

“[It’s] kind of sad I found this out, that they are not allowed to same my name in the house,” Camille told Anderson. “So these poor kids, my daughter and my son, can’t say my name in their father’s house.” (I’m presuming their kids don’t go around saying “Camille,” but rather the use of the word “Mom” isn’t permitted in Casa de Douchebag.)

Camille also claimed that even though Kelsey is remarried with a five-month-old daughter, their divorce is still not finalized. Um…

“For the most part, I thought they were done because we came to agreement basically on everything and then I kept getting emails every other week from his lawyers that he wanted to keep changing things,” recalled Camille, adding that they were supposed to sign the papers a year ago but Kelsey “bailed” before they could go through with it. “So on my end, I said, ‘OK, I agree to all of this,’ but he keeps making changes. So I feel that, at this point, he is prolonging the process.”

Um, yeah. Because he’s obsessed! Kelsey continues to slam Camille any chance he gets, but doesn’t seem to want to let her go. It’s quite creepy, actually. Kelsey makes the whole Halle/Gabe situation seem like puppies and rainbows. Can he get over himself already?
