Michael Richards to Return to TV with Kirstie Alley, Rhea Perlman

Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Michael Richards has landed his first regular TV gig in more than a decade. The Seinfeld star will co-star opposite Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman in the TV Land pilot Giant Baby, according to Deadline.

He’ll play the limo driver of Alley’s character, Madison “Maddie” Banks, a Broadway star whose long-lost son turns up on her doorstep after his adopted mother dies. Perlman will play Maddie’s best friend and assistant.

Richards, 63, earned three Emmys during his nine seasons on Seinfeld as Kramer. He starred in the short-lived 2000 NBC series The Michael Richards Show and appeared with his Seinfeld cast mates on multiple episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm in 2009.

Richards’ career was derailed in 2006 after he was filmed shouting the N-word and a host of expletives during a standup set at the Laugh Factory. He later apologized on Late Show With David Letterman.

“I got heckled and took it badly and went into a rage,” he said. “I am not a racist! That’s what’s so insane about this. For me to be on stage, and flip out and say this stuff, I’m deeply, deeply sorry.”

Report: Danny DeVito's 'Wandering Eye' Caused Rhea Perlman Split

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- A gossip website is reporting that although Danny DeVito stands around 4 foot 9, he's quite the ladykiller, and that's what torpedoed his marriage to wife Rhea Perlman.

"He may not appear to be a ladies man, but Danny certainly gets a lot of female attention," a source tells RadarOnline.

The spy says of the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia star, "Danny can be quite the flirt and because of his powerful status in Hollywood, he's not ashamed to abuse his position and chat-up young, aspiring young women looking to make it in the industry."

"After years of turning a blind eye to it, Rhea finally snapped," says the source.  "She had enough of his bad-boy behavior and wanted an end to their marriage," which was reportedly on the rocks for "probably over 10 years."

The pair married in 1982 and have three adult children.

Danny DeVito, Rhea Perlman Separate After 30 Years

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Actors Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman have split after 30 year of marriage, ABC News confirmed.

The Emmy Award-winning actor and Cheers alum have three children together: Lucy, 28, Grace, 26, and Jacob, 24.

Previously known for having one of the longest relationships in Hollywood, in the 80s Perlman told People magazine that "ours is not a fighting relationship. We both always feel terrible after even a small amount of harsh words."

The two met in 1970 when Perlman went to see a friend in The Shrinking Bride, an off-Broadway play that DeVito also starred in.
