Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher engaged, doomed

Is there anything more capricious than a match made in Hollywood? Condemnable celebrity relationship expert Jennifer Aniston says, "No. Sadly, no."

From Rihanna to Woody Allen (diametric opposites on every conceivable human spectrum, except, perhaps, those involving self esteem) the love-landscape of famous people resembles something Frodo and Samwise would have difficulty crossing. While love between celebrities appears fleeting, there is positively no future in a relationship between costars. The recent revelation of the engagement between That 70's Show alums, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, brings to mind short-lived matrimonial bliss of pop culture's past. See slideshow.

Best wishes to the currently happy couple, of course. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner simply have no one to hang out with.

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart crash and positively burn

The Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart disaster is perhaps the blueprint for how to destroy a relationship. Rumored to be headed toward engagement themselves, Stewart abandoned "Team Edward" for then-married film director, Rupert Sanders.

Things didn't work out between Stewart and Sanders either. Weird, hey?

Katy Perry Russell Brand young love, idiocy

While not technically starring together, Katy Perry and Russell Brand met while performing on the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards. Further proof that MTV has not produced anything of worth since the 90's, Brand and Perry's marriage lasted just three months longer than The Ashlee Simpson Show.

Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen; brainless and shameless

Not awful enough to be exclusive, Kristen Stewart's public scandal is mirrored quite thoroughly by the fair, but thoughtless Kate Beckinsale.

Beckinsale left Underworld costar and temporary love interest, Michael Sheen, for, yes, then-married Underworld director Len Wiseman.

The three remain friends, which in Hollywood is considered among the more monumental relationship successes. Wiseman's former wife has an alternative, if less complimentary opinion.

Everyone appearing on The Bachelor/Bachelorette

If those appearing on reality shows may be considered as celebrities, then ABC's hit Bachelor/Bachelorette series has produced some soap-opera-worthy celebrity entanglements.

The Ashley Hebert debacle may be the most convoluted, though, on this program, she's in good (read damnable) company. The tattered couplings that result each season have Flavor Flav shaking his head. Well, that and chemical withdrawal.
