J.Lo and Disastrous Celebrity Couples

The Heartbreak: The band had hardly stopped playing when the union was declared null and void. Gabor was still technically married to her seventh husband, divorce lawyer Michael O'Hara, who had extricated her from her sixth marriage.

The Aftermath: Gabor's ninth marriage — to Prince Frederick von Anhalt of Germany — has been her longest. They've been together since 1986. Following a car accident, Gabor has been hospitalized for much of the past year. She told reporters on her 86th birthday that she hoped to be home soon and expected her husband to give her "something shiny."

Honorable mentions: Serial brides Joan Collins and Elizabeth Taylor, who have been married a combined 13 times (if you count Richard Burton twice); reality TV's Darva Conger and Rick Rockwell; the tattooed Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton … and Ernest Borgnine and Ethel Merman, two of the loudest people in Hollywood history, who stayed married for a whole month in 1964.
