“We are committed to each other, totally,” Danson said in 1989.
There was an extreme affection and respect between them.“I’d walk in Whoopi’s shadow for the rest of my life—I adore the woman,” Danson said, though he purportedly was talking about their future on-screen collaborations and not their private offscreen life.Danson and Goldberg are not the only stars to have had their heads turned and their lives turned inside out of late by the intoxicating atmosphere of a movie location. “There was an immediate attraction,” says a senior member of the crew.“If you can’t see the humor at a place where there’s supposed to be over-the-line jokes, then there’s something really wrong,” she told the .Goldberg later took responsibility for the act and admitted that she had written Danson’s off-color material.For one thing, the feisty Goldberg had never even seen , the TV sitcom on which Danson played libidinous bartender Sam Malone.
And though she had been twice married and twice divorced, the 43-year-old actress, mother to 18-year-old Alexandrea and grandmother to 3-year-old Amarah Skye, hardly cultivated a glamorous image.
New York City’s first and so far only African-American mayor David Dinkins was also in attendance and was not amused.
He said the jokes Danson made “were pretty vulgar and many were way, way over the line.” However others in attendance, such as model and fashion icon Beverly Johnson, defended the TV star.
But when the sets were struck, Goldberg and Danson were both in new and different places, emotionally and otherwise.
By the time of the publicity tour or the movie, their public sightings had become too numerous—and affectionate—to ignore.
Ted and Whoopi had appeared inseparable in Washington during the Inauguration festivities last January.
