WORST CELEBRITY COUPLES PAIRS OF ALL TIME? WELL, HERE’S SOME OF THEM
It is quite possible that these are not the absolute worst of all-time, as we could certainly find others with more painstaking research. But these are enough for now. Hey—we could surely come up with a lot more in the way of couples if fellatio was a sport (at least officially), because there are plenty of candidates who were probably consummate pros in that area. Think of the possibilities.
This is a bad pairing because it could wind up getting extremely ugly before all is said and done. Let's see, she was sleeping with her bodyguard while she should have been in the office running the Dodgers? A guy who also happens to be an heir to something (Pillsbury I think)? According to her Wikipedia entry, when young Jamie Luskin was a teenager, she told her mother that she wanted to own a major league baseball team. Of course, when she married Frank she never had an idea...I guess. Isn't it interesting how well things work out?
It seemed like yesterday that this power couple was getting married, but clearly the relationship hit a sandtrap. Apparently things got a little uncomfortable as Norman was interfering in the case of Evert's sons, doing certain things to keep them away from Evert's ex-husband (one of them anyway), skier Andy Mill. Evert simply did not get along with Norman's children. The Brady Bunch this wasn't. The couple is now separated. Mill told People Magazine, "Now that Greg is out of the picture, we are all fine, and I am ecstatic." Which brings us to......
Mill, who skied the downhill in two different Winter Olympiads, married Evert in 1988, but then Evert left Mill for his best friend—that's right—Greg Norman. Of course, Mill wished the couple well, after skating away from the divorce with $7 million in cash and assets and a $4 million home. And now we come to.....
By all accounts, this was not a volatile or violent relationship, though we may never know the details since Lloyd refused all kinds of offers from the British tabloids for the "inside story." Lloyd was never that comfortable with being a celebrity, while Evert reveled in it. Another bad side effect, from what I recall, is that whenever Chrissie's ex-boyfriend Jimmy Connors played Lloyd in a tournament, he went out of his way to embarrass him. I will spare you a possible headache by leaving the Evert-Connors combo out of this list.
If I'm not mistaken, hasn't Monica Seles already been stabbed in the back on the tennis court? Now she's taking up with the Buffalo Sabres' owner and sometime politician, 32 years her senior, who has been accused, at various times, of stabbing the Democratic, Republican and Independence parties in New York in the back. When you're a billionaire, you get to throw a lot of money around. Didn't Seles earn enough?
In March of 2008, a story in Sports Illustrated about basketball twins Brook and Robin Lopez happened to mention this: "Robin is dating Stanford’s current most famous female coed, golf phenom Michelle Wie, although both have tried to keep things as quiet as possible." You better believe HE was trying to keep things quiet. He is a year and a half older. SHE didn't turn 18 until October of 2007. How long had they been dating? Did it go back to September of that year? Can we get a witness?
You know you're taking one for the team when you wrestle your own wife to push forward a storyline. That's exactly what Maro did with his wife Rena (Sable) in 1998 when he pinned her in a match that was designed to "settle a score." Well, Mero eventually got drummed out of the WWE, after which Sable/Rena left him for someone who still had some mileage left in him - Brock Lesnar. Although Sable & Brock didn't make the Top 5 Hottest Celebrity Sports Couples list, they did get an honorable mention.
There is way too much "Ken and Barbie" stuff going on here. Something's got to become unglued somewhere. Plus, from what I hear from scouts, she throws with more velocity than he does.
Well, we can go on and on about Marion Jones, but in capsule form, let's just say that she divorced Hunter, an Olympic shot-putter, in large part because his failing four drug tests and being disqualified from participation from the 2000 Games ruined their "drug-free marriage." Naturally, Hunter knew she was lying, and testified to that effect during the BALCO investigation, in which he claimed to have seen her injecting herself through her stomach. Those double-crossing bastards! Last I heard, payback was a bitch. Jones later had a son with Olympic sprinter Tim Montgomery, who was convicted (along with her) in connection with a check fraud case. Like I said, we could go on and on. Don't get us started, because we gotta finish.
Why? Well, hold up a picture of Steffi Graf, then hold up a picture of Brooke Shields next to it. Need I say more? Was that guy on drugs or something?
