The Top 10 Train Wreck Couples of 2011

These celebrity hookups, breakups and eff-ups were so juicy, we simply couldn’t look away.
  1. Doug Hutchison and Courtney Stodden

    Before 2011, you only knew his face from movies like The Green Mile. But once he married an oddly haggard and overly sexualized 16-year-old named Courtney Stodden, Doug Hutchison became a household name. The pair disgusted a nation with uncomfortable PDAs and spastic facial expressions in their many, many media appearances. TV executives, if you can hear us, please do not give this pair a reality show.
  2. Jesse James and Kat Von D

    You'd think that cheating on your wife, Sandra Bullock, with a woman with a forehead tattoo would be all the train wreck one man could handle. But you'd be wrong. James proceeded to cheat on Kat Von D with not one but 19 other women in a year's time (according to Kat). Lesson learned: You won't be the one to change him!

  3. Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris

    What does it take to win the heart -- and hand -- of America's most notorious playboy? Lots of lies and deception, apparently. As her wedding to Hef approached, Crystal got an acute case of cold feet, called off the nuptials and proceeded to bash her former flame's, ahem, manliness to the press. Yeesh. Talk about adding insult to injury!

  4. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

    You didn't think we’d leave this train wreck off the list, did you? Sure, we saw this one coming. But we didn't foresee it lasting just 72 days -- that's shorter than the average life span of Kim's hair extensions!
  5. Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller

    It's hard to tell which one is the bad influence in this relationship, since Charlie and Brooke both seem to constantly be under the influence. It all started innocently enough: just two sometimes-sober individuals embarking on a fairy-tale life together. But a pair of twin babies, several drug and alcohol binges and one knife-wielding fight later, and the pair were kaput. And it just keeps getting worse with these two.

  6. Charlie Sheen and the Goddesses

    With Brooke Mueller (and, subsequently, his career) out of the picture, Charlie and his tiger blood took up a two-woman harem composed of a porn star and a "model" whom he nicknamed the "goddesses." While the world cringed, the whole debacle played out in almost every media outlet for several months until the goddesses quietly moved out. No word on why such a stable relationship couldn't go the distance..

  7. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver

    Their seemingly idyllic 25-year marriage came crashing down in a train wreck heap when word got out that Arnold had not only cheated on Maria, but also had secretly conceived a son with the couple’s housekeeper over a decade prior. This apparently was news to Maria (can you even imagine??), who soon filed for divorce. Our prediction: Arnold will not be back.
  8. Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin

    Anthony who? Hardly anyone even knew of former New York congressman Anthony Weiner until the politician accidentally tweeted a naked picture of himself that was likely meant as a direct message to a 21-year-old female acquaintance. (Oops! Also, ew!) Huma, who was pregnant at the time, remained largely silent and decided to keep the union intact. But their train wreck lives in infamy.

  9. Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner

    The former Melrose Place costars sent the celebrity gossip world into a nostalgic tizzy when they announced their engagement in August. But in true dramatic fashion, they called it off just a few months later. We’re not sure, but we’re guessing it might have had something to do with the emergence of the long-lost adult daughter that Jack never knew he had until this year. Don’t you hate when that happens?
  10. David Arquette and Courteney Cox

    Okay, this split technically happened in 2010. But the train wreck antics of free-spirited David lasted well into 2011, culminating in an embarrassingly candid interview on The Howard Stern Show. If the relationship wasn’t over before, it certainly was by the time he exited that studio. Oh, David. We can’t help it; we still like him.
