The average person heading into a marriage hopes it lasts for eternity. That’s not always the case in Hollywood, where some celebrities go through spouses faster than they go through manicures. Even though hundreds, if not thousands, of celebrities have quickly seen “I do’s” turn to “I don’t’s,” these top five caused quite the media stir.

5 Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Kim K. truly had it all. She was at the top of her career, young, gorgeous and engaged to a tall handsome basketball player. To make her fairytale complete, the E! Network broadcast a two-day special chronicling every last detail of the Kardashian-Humphries nuptials. Naturally, you’d assume a ceremony watched by millions worldwide would last for a lifetime. But after just 72 days of marital bliss, Mrs. Humphries decided her fairytale was more of a mirage and filed for divorce.

4 Mario Lopez and Ali Landry

The “Saved by the Bell” dimpled-faced stud married model-actress Ali Landry back in 2004. Maybe you never knew about it because it ended before the honeymoon began. She found out that he was—supposedly—unfaithful to her at some point during their six-year romance. So after two weeks of marriage, she called it quits and filed for an annulment. Apparently A.C. Slater’s charm couldn’t get him out of the doghouse.

3 Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman

A man who wears a wedding dress to a book signing—every woman’s fantasy? Apparently so. Carmen Electra fell hard for the ex-Chicago Bulls superstar and married him in the wedding capital of the world: Las Vegas. Reportedly though, the two had been pre-gaming quite hard and weren’t in a sound state of mind to really say their “I do’s.” Needless to say, the couple filed for an annulment after nine days and the holy matrimony was officially dissolved six months later.

2 Britney Spears and Jason Alexander

In 2004, pop princess Britney Spears stunned fans when wedding photos with an unknown man surfaced. While hopped up on a Las Vegas high, Ms. Spears became overwhelmed with adoration for her childhood friend Jason Alexander. The two married in the Little White Wedding Chapel, but it didn’t last. Fifty-five hours later, Britney’s people processed the paperwork to quickly annul the marriage and make it look like it never happened.

1 Zsa Zsa Gabor and Felipe de Alba

You probably think of a short marriage as one that lasts just months or weeks. How about one that lasts for mere hours? Zsa Zsa Gabor has quite the track record with husbands—she’s been married nine times. While her current marriage has been going strong since 1986, her husband prior to that wasn’t so lucky. In 1983 she married Felipe de Alba, a Mexican lawyer. Unfortunately, she didn’t cross the T’s and dot the I’s on the paperwork from her previous divorce though. She was still legally married to Michael O’Hara. So sadly, her wedlock with Mr. de Alba was annulled less than 24 hours after they said their vows.
