Celebrity Newlyweds Who Had A Change Of Heart

As was made pretty apparent on tonight’s “True Life: I’m a Newlywed,” love is grand, but marriage can be a real bitch. Some couples just aren’t cut out for that ” ’til death do us part” stuff.

We hate to single out celebs for being flaky because we civilians make stupid decisions all the time. But let’s face it, calling attention to famous people for their mistakes is a great distraction from our own problems. Below, six of the shortest starry unions in recent history.

DREW BARRYMORE AND JEREMY THOMAS
Length of marriage: One month
Snarky commentary: Who’s Jeremy Thomas, you ask? Apparently just another dude who got sideswiped by notorious commitment-phobe Drew Barrymore. Back in the “E.T.” days she was America’s sweetheart, but Drew’s now well-known in Hollywood for being a complete man-eater. In fact, her later marriage to MTV’s uber-weirdo Tom Green only lasted five months! Poor guy never knew what hit him.

BRITNEY SPEARS AND JASON ALEXANDER
Length of marriage: 55 hours
Snarky commentary: It’s not like she made the best decision in marrying K-Fed, but at least their marriage lasted longer than a few days. In 2004, Brit Brit became living proof that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas when she wed childhood pal Jason Alexander inside a Malibu Rum-scented chapel.

NICKY HILTON AND TODD ANDREW MEISTER
Length of marriage: Three months
Snarky commentary: We always considered Nicky the smarter less brain-deadish of the two sisters, but Paris never went to Vegas with a sorta-boyfriend and left with a legit husband. While this story finally put Nicky in the spotlight, a few months later she went back to being That Other Hilton.

LISA MARIE PRESLEY AND NICOLAS CAGE
Length of marriage: Three months
Snarky commentary: At the time, Nic Cage seemed like a much more stable choice than Michael Jackson (who was married to Lisa Marie from May 1994 to December 1995), but ultimately, marrying the daughter of your hero doesn’t necessarily translate into true love. These two split in 2002 after admitting they were too “Wild at Heart.”

CARMEN ELECTRA AND DENNIS RODMAN
Length of marriage: Five months
Snarky commentary: It wasn’t so much a shocker that these two bold party people took their oaths in — wait for it — Vegas (are you starting to see why Sin City weddings get a bad rap?), nor was it a shock when Rodman tried to have the marriage annulled after only nine days. They ultimately stayed together for five months, presumably because all the press coverage was enough to keep them smiling.

PAMELA ANDERSON AND KID ROCK
Length of marriage: Four months
Snarky commentary: Four years following their broken engagement, this rocker groupie and big-booby worshiper reconnected in 2006 and held wedding celebrations across the country. But when the kegs were kicked, so was that lovin’ feeling.
Bonus points: Pam married “1 Night in Paris” sex tape star Rick Salomon for a total of five months in 2007.
