Kim Kardashian's marriage lasted 72 days. Surprised much?

Celebrity weddings and celebrity marriages are two different things. Keeping Up With the Kardashians needed a wedding, and that's what Kim provided for the show. 

It was a smart business move. Kim made somewhere around $18m from her lavish wedding and now she'll probably rake in a few more by selling every detail of her marriage to Kris Humphries. Not a bad salary for 72 days' work.

We wonder if she'll get to keep all of it since the wedding hasn't even aired on E! yet.

Not all celeb couples are divided by dollars though. Alcohol and mental problems drove a wedge between Weston Cage and his SA wife Nikki Williams, Liz Hurley fell for another man and the revelation of Arnie's love child sent Maria Shriver packing.

This year hasn't been a good one for celeb marriages. We recount the divorces here.

Do celebrities ever get their happy ending, or is the limelight a passion killer? You tell us.

'Til next week,

Local is very lekker!
