A lot of couples spare no expense when it comes to their wedding day, but is it worth all the cash if the marriage is doomed for divorce? The fifteen couples on this list spent an estimated combined total of .5 million on their big days. Maybe it would have been worth it if their love had lasted forever, but all these marriages had unhappy endings.
When you’re in love with someone, you want the world to know about it. When celebrities are in love with someone, they waste millions of dollars on the wedding ceremony. While it’s absolutely a celebrity’s prerogative to live a lavish and opulent lifestyle, we can’t help but feel that their millions of dollars could have been better spent elsewhere. Paying off debt? Investing in land? Donated to charities to help needy children? Donated to US?
What’s even more interesting is that when these couples get divorced, they waste even more money. Marc Anthony spent 0,000 when he wed Dayanara Torres. They were only married for a few years, but now she wants 3,000 a month in child support so their children can live it up. Paul McCartney ponied up million when he married Heather Mills, but she sucked him dry in their bitter divorce.
It’s not just a bank account that’s ruined, though. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had a million dollar wedding and their separation ruined Cruise’s reputation. Tommy Mottola wooed Mariah Carey with a half million dollar ceremony and she dragged him through the dirt after their divorce, too!
When an expensive marriage fails, the celebrities involved lose more than just love, they lose a ton of money–and their reputation. But let’s focus on the money because these over-the-top weddings were epic wastes of money.

What is it about a show following a foursome of fabulous women that makes it so compulsively watchable? Sex & the City, Designing Women, Girlfriends — the formula has been a proven hit, time after time. To figure out why, we of course have to refer to the OG of female foursome TV: The Golden Girls. Following the lives of sexy seniors raunching it up in a Miami retirement community, the multi-Emmy winner introduced the four archetypes that would be the secret sauce for the success of all it’s imitators: The Witty Everywoman (ie, the leader of the pack), the Innocent (ie, the lovable airhead), the Vixen (ie, the tart who’ll steal your man and giggle about it), and the Realist (ie, the wise-cracking shade-thrower). This combination? Ratings gold.
To celebrate Girls’ creator Lena Dunham’s first SNL hosting gig, let’s take a look at some of our favorite female foursomes in TV history. Sofia Petrillo forever.

The Oscars are over and Paris Fashion Week is wrapping up, which means we can finally stop pretending the ridiculous contraptions worn by some the world’s biggest stars are soon to be “on trend.” Rihanna has been in the City of Lights all week, hanging out with Oscar winners and breaking out dozens of outfits that would make a marathon runner stop in his or her tracks. Her short hair looks great, the bold lip is on point, but she’s still had some missteps.
RiRi’s partner in crime Cara Delevingne proves supermodels really do benefit from having designers dress them while Girls star Allison Williams let fellow Oscar partygoers know how much she likes the color pink. (It’s a lot.) Actress Shar Jackson was a woman on the prowl at the Mr. Peabody & Sherman premiere in Los Angeles, and Ed Westwick L.A. club attire makes us think he may be lost without his Gossip Girl costumer designers. Or is this just Chuck Bass casual wear? For tips on what not to try at home, look no further than the gallery above where stars like Melanie Brown, Keira Knightley and more are giving us headaches with their startling fashion choices.

Ahead of the premiere of Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-reality series, we wanted to take a closer look at her career (and personal) recovery. While most view the time around the release of I Know Who Killed Me as her big breakdown moment, troubles for the actress started shortly after the success of Mean Girls. Lohan was under a microscope. After collapsing during the making of Herbie: Fully Loaded and getting into a string of car accidents, her her star started to diminish. Suddenly everyone was wondering if she was worth the effort or even all the unwanted attention. Since then, Lohan has been struggling to bounce back and erase any memory of the past decade with a series of comeback attempts.
Comeback Attempt #1: Don’t Call It a Comeback
Immediately following the success of Mean Girls, Lohan completed her final obligation to Disney: Herbie: Fully Loaded. During that time she recorded her debut album, Speak. Overworked and stretched thin, Lohan collapsed on set, got into her first of many car accidents and started dating Wilmer Valderrama. While Just My Luck was a minor hit, insiders were beginning to grumble over Lohan’s troubling off-screen antics.
In order to stall the “good girl gone bad” reputation, Lohan quickly signed up for two adult ensemble films, A Prairie Home Companion as Meryl Streep’s daughter and Bobby as a bride-to-be in the hotel where RFK was assassinated. Lohan excelled in both, proving that she had the acting chops to stand alongside Streep and Sharon Stone. But both films presented an unsettling omen: Lohan was not a redhead in either film. Blonde and brunette dye jobs would later prove rough for Lohan’s career.
