Between them, Hines and Kennedy, 68, share seven children — she has one, she has six — and different views of the world, at times.

She added, “Sometimes I get really frustrated and say, ‘Look, yeah, we all die of everything. Whatever you think is killing us, it is. So let’s enjoy the night.”

Fortunately, it worked and they’ve been joking for 21 years – and hopefully, lots and lots more.
“I could do it every day, all day for the rest of my life,” she said.
