Robin Williams is dating his own wife

Robin Williams has been out of rehab for three months, and is trying to get back in his wife’s good graces. She hasn’t allowed him to move back into their mansion, but he can take her out on dates. He seems to be working hard to try to prove that he’s serious about staying sober and being there for his family:

The Enquirer has learned the Oscar-winning actor’s wife Marsha has not alllowed him to move back into their northern California home, but has permitted him to “date” her again!

“Robin wants more than anything to move back home and live with his family, but his wife is still taking it slowly,” says the source. “He’s telling pals that he’s slowly attempting to rebuild their relationship.”

But it’s a difficult situation because the 55 year-old actor is leiving in Los Angeles, while Marsha is at the couple’s Napa Valley residence with their two teenaged children.

“They see each other when his schedule permits,” said the source, “but it’s been lonely and difficult for him.”

[From National Enquirer print edition, January 22, 2007]

Robin Williams poked fun at his stay in rehab in his typical ADD style at the People’s Choice Awards, where he won the award for “Funny Male Star.” He brought his 17 year-old daughter, Zelda, to the event.

Robin’s wife Marsha was the nanny of his first child, Zachary, 23, with his ex wife Valerie Velardi. Marsha and Robin have daughter Zelda and son Cody, 14. Thanks to JustJared for Robin’s family background.

That’s sweet that he’s trying to work for his wife’s trust and affection, and hopefully it will work out for them.

    I hope his wife finds it in her heart to let him back in their house soon, he seems like he’s really trying to make it work. I can understand her position, especially since there are kids involved, but people just out of rehab needs a lot of support from their family to “make it on the outside”.

    Imagine that! A celebrity dating their own spouse! Unlike others i.e. Kate Hudson and Britney Spears who date everybody while they’re still married to someone else!

    Well, it’s not like Robin hasn’t cheated – remember, he left his first wife for this woman, his nanny at the time. I still can’t get my head around that. Still, I’m glad he’s trying to make it work. I just hope he sticks with it and doesn’t say, “Ah, screw it!”

    Im hoping he OD’s so we can be spared any more talk show rants styled on his 70s coke rampages passing themselves off as inspired …and that the evil that is Patch Adams, What Dreams May Come, Death to Smoochy and Jakob the Liar amongst steaming piles of other cinematic offal can be wiped from the collective memory by the incineration of his wrinkled wattled corpse … but maybe that’s jsut me … Let Live And Let God as they say in Rehab

    Thanks Matt – I forgot about his philandering with the nanny and leaving his first wife. Maybe age and experience has made him wiser now?

    Death To Smoochy was inspired!

    ps – “age and experience” in Hollywood, cult of youth and being famous for nothing? I don’t fancy the odds.

    Death to Smoochy was EXCELLENT! I still cry at Patch Adams… And though he has made mistakes in his past, it seems like he is really trying and that is admirable. So, I personally will ocntinue to heart Robin Williams.
