'Cheers' Star

SHOCKED

By Devito/Perlman Split

Danny DeVito
and Rhea Perlman's split didn't just come as a surprise to their fans ... it also blindsided their close friends -- including "Cheers" actor John Ratzenberger, who claims he had NO IDEA the famed couple was calling it quits.

Ratzenberger -- who played Cliff on the 80s sitcom alongside Rhea -- said he just saw his old co-star the other day and she didn't even suggest things were going south with her husband of 30 years.

Ratzenberger could hardly believe the news about the spit, saying simply, "That's sad."

When TMZ asked John what he thought the reason for the split and he answered; "ever since Danny started always sunny in Philly he changed. He got a ghetto Philly attitude and I guess Rhea ain't having it." You got to love Philly!

I love his Made in America series. He was a pretty funny character in Cheers.
