Media personality Phillip John Donahue, known best for his talk show, Donahue, is the proud husband of Marlo Thomas who just so happens to have Lebanese roots.
Marlo Thomas is an American Lebanese actress known for her role on the sitcom That Girl. She also played Jennifer Aniston’s mom on Friends.
In addition to appearing in many films and TV shows alongside A-list celebrities, Marlo is also an author and producer.
Margaret Julia ‘Marlo’ Thomas is the daughter of American Lebanese comedian and performer Danny Thomas, who was notably the founder of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Danny Thomas was born Amos Muzyad Yaqoob Kairouz to Lebanese immigrants Charles Yaqoob Kairouz and Margaret Taouk. Danny took pride in his Lebanese heritage, and it seems his children do too.
Case in point, Marlo recently posted on social media that her brother Tony sent an “I love my Lebanese wife” t-shirt to her husband Phil and that he loves it.
Apparently Phil even wore the shirt on the American talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, hosted by Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. The episode will air on Friday, May 9th.
The couple is currently promoting their co-written book “What Makes a Marriage Last” so this t-shirt couldn’t have been more perfectly timed.
Plus, it’s a great shoutout from Hollywood to Lebanese people everywhere!
That’s to add that these statement t-shirts are becoming a very cool fashion trend.
You can find these shirts and hoodies at our merch store, and you can get them with free shipping worldwide (limited offer).
