The general public knows that in spite of the fame and fortune, happy ever after isn’t easily acquired in Hollywood. In a town full of actors, it must be difficult to separate the fantasy from the reality. Most marriages that meet or start on set end up on the divorce lane.
Here is a list of the celebrity divorces that mark the year 2006:
Kate Hudson and husband rocker Chris Robinson called it quits early this year. Her advice to all couples thinking of getting married: “Don’t get married if you think it will be a fairy tale’.
Another actress/musician relationship to go down the drain: Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora (guitarist of Bon Jovi). Class act that she is, Heather Locklear stayed quiet about everything even as former friend, Denise Richards, flaunted her affair with Sambora.
Carmen Electra and guitarist Dave Navarro also belong to the list of actress/ musician marriages that didn’t last. The end came after they had a reality show about their marriage.
Hmmm…that does seem to cause marriage failure – having a reality show about your marriage. That sure seems to be the case with Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. Looks like he couldn’t take it when her career boomed while his sunk out of sight.
No surprise that Britney Spears filed for divorce. It was pretty much on the cards when you title your reality TV show Britney and Kevin: Chaotic. It was a good day for Britney Spears when she finally woke up to reality.
Whitney Houston too finally woke up and got rid of Bobby Brown this year. It took her a long time but at least she’s finally out from under. Hopefully things will be better for her now.
Of course, there are many reasons why couples split up. One reason is when the women become the breadwinner and earn ridiculously bigger amounts than the men. Women really do prefer it if their husbands earn better than they do. Examples of couples that break up of this: Academy Award winner Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe, and recent surprise Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe.
The biggest and messiest divorce of the year so far though is that of Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills. She’s even dragging his first wife into it and she’s no longer alive!
