I Do….Again and Again! Celebs Who Keep On Walking Down That Aisle
“When I fall in love, it will be forever…” Or maybe not. Relationships can be hard and we all know this. Marriage can be even harder because now the stakes are higher. Sadly (or maybe not, depending on the situation), sometimes things just don’t work out the way we envision them. Those are the breaks in not only our lives but also in the lives of the celebrities. See, in case you didn’t know, they’re just like us – except with more money and more shine. They get married and divorced too…some more times than others. Here’s a quick glance at a few celebs (and we could’ve names many more like Christie Brinkley, Richard Pryor, Billy Bob Thornton, Liz Taylor, etc…) who’ve taken more than one trip down the aisle.
That’s right, in case you didn’t know, the pretty, purple one has walked down the aisle twice. YES, remember he married his first wife Mayte in 1996? Everyone seems to remember Mayte and they were married for about three years. He then married Manuela Testolini (she’s actually married to Eric Benet now) in 2001 and they divorced in 2006.
I think we’re all familiar with Halle’s marriages, correct? She married David Justice in 1993 and they were divorced in 1997. She late married Eric Benet in 2001 and their divorce was finalized in 2005 although they had separated in 2003.
Let’s just wrap this little connection up, shall we? Eric married the aforementioned Halle Berry and in July, he took his second trip down the aisle with Prince’s ex, Manuela.
I’m adding MJ to the list not just because he actually has been married twice but moreso because it’s just funny. He married Lisa Marie Pressley in 1994 but was divorced by 1996. Somewhere around late 1996, he married his childrens’ mother (oh hush, those are his children), Debbie Rowe. They divorced in 1999.
I feel like Jenny’s been married more than three times but that’s probably because we know more about her relationship history than about almost anything else she’s ever done. She was married to Ojani in 1997 and was divorced in 1998. She married Chris Judd in 2001 and by 2003, they were divorced. Finally, she and Marc Anthony were married in 2004 and are currently separated. Mmmmhmmm, I’d say her new boo Casper is in a very good position if and when she and Marc divorce.
Yeah, ol’ “Baby Wipes” Howard found women to take that trip with him THREE times. Well, actually he married one woman twice. Yes, he was married to Lori McCommas from 1989-2003 and then they were remarried in 2005. He’s now in a divorce battle with him his second wife (but third marriage) Michelle Ghent whom he married in 2010. They are really slinging that mud in court too. Women should really just leave him alone – he just looks a little “off.”
Lady Liza has been married and divorced four times! Her last marriage ended in 2007; she was married to David Gest and everyone’s big question was, “Didn’t she know he was gay?” I mean…some people just don’t care. Why they wouldn’t care? I don’t know. That’s another topic for another day.
“Auntie” Gladys has been married FOUR times too! I mean, maybe I just forgot or something. Anyway, she married her first husband (her high school teacher Jimmy Newman) in 1960 and then her second husband (music exec Barry Hankerson) in 1974. Years later, she married her third hubby (motivational speaker Les Brown) in 1995 and has been married to her current husband (Willie McDowell, with his FIIIINE self) since 2001. Auntie does not give up on love, huh?
