Some girls dream about that special sacred union since they’re very small; hopeful that one day they’ll be clad in a long white gown, adorned with jewels and flowers, and surrounded by a plethora of family and friends . This ceremony is hoped to be beautiful and magical, and the love between the two who are marrying is supposed to last forever.


One thing that Hollywood has made abundantly clear is that marriage is not meant for eternity, in fact, some marriages are over before the credits, on a feature length film, can roll.

    Correct name spelling is actually…DeBarge..with a capital letter b. There IS a difference when it is YOUR family name.

  • Nia

    Kris nor Kim are black…..and Ocho Cinco was with the Dolphins at the time, not the Patriots.

  • Black

    Robin Givens got issues, and so does the R! The Dream is a dirt bag and Carmen and Dennis were drunk!

  • Dom

    Really , MN? Really? You could have left Kim&Kris, Ocho&Ev off the list and just named it 7 of the Shortest Marriages.
    You sorta redeemed the list with Robin’s 1 day marriage. In by 10, out by 4. I’ve had babysitting gigs that lasted longer!

  • Ann

    These people should not have gotten married from the start. It is sad how people and celebrities play games with these marriage vows.

    What about Britney Spears’ first marriage to her childhood friend, they were married for like 55 hours.

  • there are plenty of hollywood marriages that actually do last for the long haul and Kim K aint black or legitamentally famous. Sidney Poitier will be married 37 years January 23rd though it’s his second marriage

    • Ms. Bee

      Legitamentally. I like it.

  • missjanep

    Eddie and Tracey were NEVER LEGALLY MARRIED.

  • Madame Whiplash

    Kim kardashian is NOT black

    • Me

      They added her marriage to the list because Kris is half black.

  • Ms. Bee
