It can be said that the public is willing to put up with a lot when it comes to gossip related to dysfunctional Hollywood marriages, but many believe that the antics of Tori Spelling and actor Dean McDermott have pushed it too far. And we will break down why that might be the case.
The two shocked the celebrity gossip world when it was revealed that they engaged in an affair after meeting on the set of “Mind Over Murder,” a made-for-television movie. After separating from their respective partners, the two married. Despite their relationship being highly criticized, Tori vowed to “make this work.”
Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist
If you have ever wondered where your prince charming is, he is probably at a Swedish nightclub. At least that is where Prince Carl Phillip of Sweden was when he met former waitress and reality television starlet Sofia Hellqvist.
The Swedish public was shocked by their scandalous “how we met” story, and by Sofia’s appearance on the Swedish reality show “Paradise Hotel” where she got frisky with adult actress Jenna Jameson, believe it or not! Though Prince Carl acknowledges that she was “hung out to dry” by the media, the two have become one of the most loved royal couples in the world.
Ice-T and Coco Austin
Ice-T and model Coco Austin may seem like complete opposites, but they are actually very similar. The rapper ended up smoothly transitioning into acting, and explains that behind the public’s perception of them, he and his wife are actually a “normal couple with a normal relationship.”
Though many still associate the rapper with crime and controversy, and Coco with playing up the “dumb blonde,” the two actually have one of the longest-lasting relationships in entertainment, believe it or not. The seemingly mismatched couple got to show the world their true (and surprisingly adorable) relationship on their reality television show, “Ice Loves Coco.”
Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick
Sarah Jessica Parker and actor Matthew Broderick have had a rather interesting marriage. Following their nuptials in 1997, there have been allegations of Matthew being unfaithful, and of the couple practically living separate lives as Matthew is usually working on Broadway while his wife works in film and television.
Then there was the awkward 2004 Emmys speech where the “Sex and the City” actress forgot to thank her husband, despite mentioning dozens of cast members. Whoops! Despite the media frequently predicting the demise of their marriage, the couple is still going strong. And ultimately, we love this couple - so there's that.
Ethan Hawke and Ryan Shawhughes
Celebrities having affairs with nannies is unfortunately an all-too-common occurrence in Hollywood. And this exact phenomenon happened in the Hawke-Thurman household back in the day. When actor Ethan Hawke’s relationship with “Kill Bill” star Uma Thurman ended in 2003, tabloids were quick to point the finger at their former nanny, Ryan Shawhughes.
Though the couple adamantly denied any foul play, few were convinced. Ethan even claimed, "my [first] marriage disintegrated due to many pressures, none of which were remotely connected to Ryan." The criticism hasn’t stopped Ethan and Ryan from tying the knot and starting a family of their own.
