Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton ~ Got married in 1964, Divorced in 1975, Married each other again in 1975, Divorced again 1976.  Burton allegedly said "the most beautiful woman in the world is absolute nonsense. She has...a double chin and an overdeveloped chest, and she's rather short in the leg."  Jerk.

Courtney Cox and David Arquette separate

Doesn’t anybody stay together anymore? No, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  As Lisa Rinna recently said in InTouch Weekly, “If not for Michael Bolton, I would never have had this wonderful man [her husband, Harry Hamlin] and marriage and my two beautiful children.”  You see, it was Michael Bolton who stole Nicolette Sheridan...
