Photos | Hollywood's Shortest Marriages

Full Episode Summary

To most, celebrities seem like a callous crew of wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am-ers. But really, stars are just impetuous, lovelorn romantics, prone to following their hearts' every whim, regardless of the consequences. It's this passionate, impulsive nature that's made Hollywood the home of volatile and lightning-quick marriages, and whether these less-than-blessed unions are clocked by the month, week or even hour, they're almost always unforgettable.

There are the quickie one-offs, like the bizarre six-month marriage of Liza Minnelli and David Gest, Britney Spears' 55-hour Vegas attachment to hometown bud Jason Alexander, and the 18 days of matrimonial bliss shared by Mario Lopez and Ali Landry (after a 6-year courtship, no less!). Then, there are stars like Lisa Marie Presley and Billy Bob Thornton, who just can't seem to get this marriage thing down, no matter how many times they try.

All Access: Hollywood's Shortest Marriages will call on comedians, celebrity journalists and Hollywood insiders to carefully, hilariously dissect the quirkiest and quickest marriages in Hollywood history. As an added bonus, they'll also explore the concepts of the Vegas Curse, odd couples, the repercussions of co-workers trying to co-exist, and the brides who are just too young.

So, join VH1 as we examine that vaunted Hollywood philosophy: "Until death do us part ... or at least until our publicists find out."
