Comedian and former SNL star Chris married his model girlfriend Sunshine in June 2008. 42 days later they said their goodbyes and Tutt walked away with an extra six figures. Definitely worth the 42 days.

9. Drew Barrymore and Jeremy Thomas -29 days

Not Drew again! At only 19, Barrymore married L.A. bar owner Jeremy Thomas and their wedded bliss lasted just short of one month. Believe it or not, this marriage came after two prior engagements (and a couple more marriages to follow)!

8. Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds – 14 days

Eddie Muphy and Tracey Edmonds - 14 days

This funny man married his film-producer girlfriend in a non-binding ceremony on New Year’s Day 2008. Together they decided to have a huge (and expensive) second ceremony for their family and friends, but didn’t get past the two-week mark to even consider planning a second wedding. It’s the thought that counts!

7. Mario Lopez and Ali Landry – 14 days

This short wedding had nothing to do with quick decisions, or irreconcilable differences. Landry found compromising pictures of her husband from his wild bachelor party in Mexico. After seeing him in the photos with another woman, Landry filed for an annulment and the marriage was over before it began.

6. Cher and Gregg Allman – 9 days

Cher got hitched to musician Gregg Allman in Vegas, only three days after divorcing Sonny Bono. After realizing that Allman’s abuse of drugs and alcohol were just too much for a gal to handle, she filed for divorce nine days later.

5. Dennis Rodman and Carmen Electra – 9 days

Lucky nine days! This was a hard one to place on our list, as the couple actually stayed married for just under five months. But it was after only nine days of marriage that this couple filed for annulment, proving that the marriage was in fact, over. Apparently Rodman was “deeply intoxicated” at the time of the wedding. Hmmm….

4. Dennis Hopper and Michelle Phillips – 8 days

17 Dennis Hopper and Michelle Phillips - 8 days

According to Rolling Stone magazine, Hopper was “one of Hollywood’s most notorious drug addicts” for 20 years. Maybe this had something to do with his short-lived marriage to singer, songwriter and actress Michelle Phillips. Sadly, now-deceased Hopper was married a total of five times.

3. Britney Spears and Jason Alexander – 55 hours

Brit had a bad year with 2004. Not only did she get hitched to her childhood friend Alexander in an impromptu Vegas wedding, she also made the unfortunate decision to marry Kevin Federline. At least this marriage only lasted 55 hours.

2. ZsaZsa Gabor and Felipe DeAlba – less than 24 hours

ZsaZsa wins the title of ‘Queen’ when it comes to celebrity marriages. With a total of nine under her belt, she was still technically married to Michael O’Hara, when she tied the knot with Felipe in 1983. Thus, the marriage was annulled almost immediately.

1. Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker – 6 hours

20 Rudolph Valentino and Jean Acker - 6 hours (Copy)

Coming in at number one on our list, this couple only lasted a few hours. Acker is said to have locked Valentino out of their honeymoon suite, only hours after tying the knot. Some people believe Acker was involved with another woman (or women?!) and the entire wedding was just a ruse. Here’s hoping we can all last longer than these celebs!
