    Tony Danza's Marriage on the Rocks

    Even the boss can't control everything.

    Tony Danza and his wife, Tracy, announced Thursday that they are separating after 20 years of marriage, the actor's rep, Jill Fritzo, told E! News.

    They have two teenage daughters, Emily and Katie. Danza also has a son, Marc, from his first marriage and became a grandfather last year when Marc and wife Julie welcomed a son, Nicholas.

    Marc broke the pregnancy news to his proud pop during a cooking segment on Danza's eponymous syndicated talk show, which ended its two-year run in May. Per a report in the National Enquirer, it was stress over the cancellation of the show that contributed to the breakup of Danza's marriage.

    Before taking on his breakout role of boxer and cabbie Tony Banta on Taxi in 1978, Danza himself was a professional boxer, fighting under the moniker "Dangerous" Tony Danza. And although he dropped the "dangerous," he apparently never lost his taste for living on the edge.

    The Brooklyn native slammed into a tree while skiing in 1993 and suffered a broken back and a collapsed lung; he has so many screws, rods and plates in his spine that he just might qualify for mechanical-man status. Danza got off easier in 2005 when the mini-stock car he was racing flipped over and he, sans helmet, escaped the wreckage unharmed.

    After Tony and Angela professed their love for each other on Who's the Boss? in 1992, ending the need for the series to continue, Danza kept busy on both stage and screen. Most notably he starred in Broadway revivals of Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge and Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh, guest-starred on a four-episode arc of The Practice and joined the cast of the CBS drama Family Law in 2000. He also had a cameo as a more racist version of himself in this year's Best Picture Oscar winner, Crash.

    Danza took a musical turn in 2002, releasing an album of covers, House I Live In, and scheduling concert dates from time to time. He's set to perform in Atlantic City next month, at the Donald's Trump Plaza.

    TV Guide's 23rd-greatest TV dad of all time will also appear later this year in the thriller Aftermath, costarring Anthony Michael Hall and the late Chris Penn.
