Show Up Drunk on The View, Get Your Own Booze Brand: DeVito's Limoncello
Danny DeVito showed up last November of The View still under the influence of multiple limoncellos enjoyed during a night out with fellow actor George Clooney. It made for a funny clip on a number of the entertainment television shows. Pushing any embarrassment aside, it apparently also spawned a desire by DeVito to get into the drinks business.
Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello is being marketed by Harbrew Imports. The lemon liqueur is scheduled to be on store shelves by August.
The announcement of the new brand came as final preparation were being made for the opening of DeVito South Beach, a new Italian restaurant in Miami. DeVito is opening the place with restaurateur David Manero. Others could soon follow in New York, West Hollywood, Las Vegas and Orlando, Fla.
