SHORTEST CELEBRITY MARRIAGES

Published on: November 20, 2002

Jennifer Lopez's marriage to Cris Judd lasted just nine months -- but that was longer than the Hollywood pairings of Drew Barrymore, Charlie Sheen, Carmen Electra, Shannen Doherty and Colin Farrell!

Drew and comedian Tom Green split in December 2001, after just five months of wedded bliss. That was an improvement for the actress, whose first marriage to bar owner Jeremy Thomas lasted two months.

Carmen Electra and Dennis Rodman tied the knot in November 1998. They untied it five months later.

In September 1995 Charlie Sheen walked down the aisle with model Donna Peele. He walked out on the marriage a quick five months later.

Former "Ally McBeal" star Courtney Thorne-Smith exchanged vows with scientist Andrew Conrad in June 2000. They were exchanging divorce papers seven months later.

"Beverly Hills, 90210" star Shannen Doherty's September 1993 marriage to Ashley Hamilton lasted four months as well.

"Charmed" star Alyssa Milano beat out her former co-star Shannen by six months -- she stayed married to musician Cinjun Tate for 10 months after their Jan. 1, 1999, wedding.

Oscar-winner Helen Hunt's marriage to Hank Azaria also didn't last a year -- the couple called it quits in June 2000 after a scant 11 months.

Christie Brinkley managed to remain married to Ricky Taubman for seven months after their December 1994 wedding.

Julia Roberts and country star Lyle Lovett parted ways in March 1995 after 21 months of marriage. But the couple had spent only seven weeks together during their first eight months of marriage and started sleeping apart even when they were in the same city.

Lisa Marie Presley slapped Michael Jackson with divorce papers in January 1996 after a marriage of 20 months.

That must have seemed like an eternity to "Dynasty" beauty Catherine Oxenberg, whose July 1998 marriage to producer Robert Evans lasted a whopping 10 days. She left him when he tried to consummate their marriage.

Actor Dennis Hopper and "Mamas & the Papas" singer Michelle Phillips were married for only eight days in 1971.

And Zsa Zsa Gabor's 1982 marriage to Mexican lawyer and playboy Felipe De Alba hit the skids after just one day!
