Christopher Knight finally files for divorce from wife Adrianne Curry


A few months ago, CB reported upon the inevitable split of Adrianne “I Bagged a Brady” Curry and her husband, Christopher Knight, who is best known for playing Peter Brady on the long-running 1970s sitcom “The Brady Bunch.” At the time of their separation, the Knight and Curry had been married precisely five years, which is quite the accomplishment as far as two reality-show famewhores (who starred together on both “The Surreal Life” and “My Fair Brady”) are concerned. The fact that Curry and Knight lasted so long as a married couple is a veritable miracle. Now, TMZ is reporting that Knight has officially had enough, consulted a lawyer, and filed for divorce:

The “separation” is over … and now former “Brady Bunch” star Christopher Knight has finally filed for a divorce from his reality star wife Adrianne Curry … TMZ has learned.

Back in May, the two announced they were separating to rethink the marriage … but now, it appears Knight has reached a decision — and he wants out.

Knight filed divorce papers in L.A. County Superior Court on August 19 … according to court records obtained by TMZ.

Knight married the “Top Model” winner five years ago … after they co-starred on “The Surreal Life” together.

A rep for the couple tells us, “They are amicable and remain friends.”

Of course, this news is no surprise for those who have followed the couple to the degree of witnessing their mutual declarations earlier this year to TMZ on the subject of marriage:

Curry: “It’s my belief that men and and women weren’t really designed to be with each other, but since this is purgatory, we can’t live without them. It’s a lot work, dedication, and time. And don’t do it unless you’re willing to go the distance. That’s why a lot of people get divorced after a few years.”

Knight: “We’re from two different planets.”

Curry: “We are … especially when you’ve got a big age gap.”

In regards to the age difference, Knight is 53 and Curry is 28. This was probably the least of their concerns, and I have to admit (again, from personal experience) that a Mars-Venus difference truly exists between the sexes. The fact that Curry and Knight’s romance spawned through reality television was merely a complicating factor in regards to a very general problem within contemporary society; that is, it’s incredibly hard for a married couple to keep the dream alive after a few years, so to speak. After the so-called “honeymoon” period is over, marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world to maintain; and it certainly doesn’t help when the couple in question is spawned through a reality program, and after separation, the bride proceeds to show her (NSFW link) incredibly undressed rear end to the whole of Comic-Con San Diego. Really.

    I used to watch The Surreal Life and she did just about everything short of *begging* Christopher Knight to hook up with her, and he seems easily about as menstrual and whiny as she is.

  2. brin says:

    I watched their “courtship” on the Surreal Life, too. I actually was rooting for them then, but it really is a miracle they lasted as long as they did. They are very different and they both probably grew tired of each other.

  3. Samigirl says:

    He seems incredibly intelligent and down to Earth, while she’s…kind of…obnoxious. I wanted them to make it, but, I’m not surprised they haven’t.

  4. SolitaryAngel says:

    Wow, Peter Brady grew up to be a real douche-nozzle.

  5. Seal Team 6 says:

    She is far from perfect, but he really is a Grade-A passive-aggressive tool.

    I have friends with a 25-year age difference, and they’ve been married for just short of 25 years, so the age difference isn’t necessarily a big deal.

  6. OriginalGracie says:

    @Seal Team 6: I completely agree with your comments. Especially about him being a passive aggressive tool.

    Regarding her being an exhibitionist:
    1. Some people enjoy that and it doesn’t make her a bad person.
    2. If I had a body as nice as hers, I would be showing it off all the time too.

  7. Pyewacket says:

    Can’t stand her. She is a low class, foul mouthed skank, who has no discernible talents other than cursing and screaming.

    He’s lucky to be rid if her.

  8. Joan says:

    I have not seen many videos of Adrienne but in the ones I have, she seems friendly and good-hearted. Also, I agree in that she has a great body. She is gorgeous all around.
    I can’t say much about their marriage not working out. Sometimes people just grow apart. I hope they are happier living their lives apart than being in an unhappy marital situation.

  9. dorothy says:

    If I were him I would count myself lucky.She was apparently too busy tweeting photos of herself constantly to be bothered with a husband . Her and LeAnn Rhimes should be buddies, they could take turns taking pics of each other.

  10. mrsezc says:

    OMG I am so shocked!!!! (LOL that it lasted as long as it did.)

    I find Adrienne crass and class-less. Christopher seems to be a jerk for giving into what she wanted. I’m glad they are childless; I don’t think Adrienne is mother material.

  11. 6 says:

    I usually don’t think it’s right to blame one person for the demise of a relationship but it appears that she could have put forth more effort to hang out in his comfort zone. She was always thrusting him into obnoxious TPT area with her shenanigans. They probably weren’t going to make it anyway but she didn’t help matters.

  12. JM says:

    Although I rooted for them on The Surreal Life, I wish I’d never watched My Fair Brady. It totally blew all illusions I had about who Christopher Knight was. He’s not the sweet down to Earth Peter Brady you imagined. He’s a total douche bag control freak and like others mentioned, extremely passive aggresive.

    Adrienne may not be a lady in the classic, classy sense but she never professed to be. She speaks her mind and is unashamed. I find that quality endearing. She’s also been quite outspoken about the fact that Christopher was the first man she ever dated.

    I wish them well and hope Adrienne finds a nice girlfriend to help her through this difficult time.

  13. Seal Team 6 says:

    @JM –

    Exactly. I think posters blaming this on Adrienne probably never watched “My Fair Brady.” He is a jerk, and he’s made a bunch of his money from alimony! Adrienne is one in that marriage who worked, even if she didn’t exactly do what she wanted to do in modeling.

    And, like yous aid, she had always had same-sex relationships before Knight, so I hope she goes back to herself.

    Oh, she was raised very blue collar, so she is definitely rough around the edges, but she certainly isn’t a criminal or a “skank.”

  14. curleque says:

    They should never have gotten together in a serious capacity. She is immature. He is a tool.

    And yes, a marriage (or any serious relationship) is “a lot work, dedication, and time” but (from personal experience) if all that work, dedication, and time is consuming your life, and you are not happy, it’s time to move on. Nobody gets a prize at the end of the day for staying in a bad relationship and being unhappy… not even Brat Pitt or Justin Theroux (yes, I went there).

  15. Ellie says:

    She’s a Pig! I’m surprised he lasted that long with her. She has no moral compass. A pathetic fame chaser. Nice body, but her face is soooo not top model material. More like catelog. Hopefully she’ll go away now.

  16. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    I like her with glasses.

  17. Stubbylove says:

    I watched them from the beginning on Surreal Life too. Let’s be real here – Knight wanted to get LAID by a hot young chick who thought he was the shit and Curry wanted to bag a Brady. They fullfilled a few needs, had some laughs and I’m sure some good sex. But he knew better than to get friggin’ married b’cuz of it – she was too young and stupid to know better. Probably much needed money & attention got the best of him.

  18. Truthful says:

    I found her to be very immature and he is set in his ways.

    I was rooting for them but she always seemed so inappropriate all the time.

    I think they loved each other but it shouldn’t be that was painful to watch their struggle on tv.

    He wanted the best for her but she needed to learn what she really wanted.

  19. mzjask says:

    i agree with JM & Seal Team 6. he’s a knob. and she deserves better. he should have considered himself lucky that after 2 previously failed marriages, some hot piece paid him Any attention.
    i love that she always speaks her mind even if its totally out there. if he doesn’t like it, i can assure you there is a man [or woman] who will. she seems like a genuinely sweet person who deserves to be happy and i think she wanted it to work.
    i hate how celebrities get married at the drop of a hat and then almost as quickly divorce. why even get married if you’re not willing to go the long haul? sure my hubby irritates me sometimes as i probably do him but thats what a marriage is; For Life.

  20. The Original Ashley says:

    I watched My Fair Brady too and I liked AC. She didn’t put on an act. She was very normal and down to earth and yes rough around the edges (she’s was a boys girl and grew up blue collar, what do you expect).

    He on the other hand dogged her every chance he got and reveled in putting her down (he especially loved throwing her age into it). If anything I never understood her obsession with him.

    I’m surprised it’s only been 5 years. Seems like they were together longer.

  21. VeneficA Delirium says:

    @Brin: She doesn’t really bother me. She’s a bit on the attention seeking side, but he seems pretty controlling considering that he never really even gave her the time of day on The Surreal Life. If anything, she seemed to really be interested in him because his career peaked decades ago so she didn’t have much to gain from it.

  22. Mimi says:

    They didn’t seem happy together.

    It felt like he wasn’t nice to her or wasn’t really interested in being there for the long run.

    I didn’t understand why she wanted him to marry her and have this relationship.

    She is very good looking. Is he rich?

    I guess this is sad, since this was a real marriage and not some PR made up thing like Tom and Katie.

    I wonder what make them decide to break up for good.

  23. DesertRose says:

    Just have to say, I went to high school with her, and she is still one of the funnest people I have ever met. Good hearted, outspoken, sometimes ridiculous and full of it, but aren’t we all? Anyways, we all think she fell head over heels for him, and he’s pretty much a douche. She’s way too cool for him =)

  24. Kim says:

    They never had anything in common – im suprised it lasted 5 yrs. At least it seems they really did try to work it out but the age difference was to much.

  25. Memphis says:

    I’m surprised it lasted this long. They didn’t have anything in common and he always acted embarrassed by her. I don’t care for either of them but I would take her grossly inappropriate honesty over his self absorbed douchebaggery any day.

  26. LittleDeadGrrl says:

    I already thought they were divorced. Also, I always got the feeling she was a lesbian … that can’t help the whole hetero marriage thing to last either.

  27. Becky says:

    I never understood why she wanted to get married to him. Sex-sure-I don’t find him attractive but I guess being with a “Brady” provided her with some sort of odd thrill. From what I could tell from the reality shows they were on he never seemed that into her. I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did.

    Although I think she’s a tacky exhibitionist, she certainly is a very pretty woman. She looks like a young Sela Ward (an actress who used to do alot of TV shows in the 80′s and ’90′s). She can do way better than this dude. He seems like a tool.

  28. Chris says:

    I think it was the height difference.

  29. Amanda G says:

    I think they should be proud the marriage lasted this long. They had problems from day one.

  30. JT says:

    I like Adriana, loved her on ANTM. She was fun, fearless and confident in herself, not to mention talented. And she is talented, it’s a shame she’s been reduced to this when she has so much potential as a model. It’s unfortunate that she pissed Tyra off and did the play boy spread all within seconds of winning the show. It just killed whatever career she might have had and now she’s been reduced to whoring herself on Twitter and parading herself in front of fanboys in order to get any attention. But I still have a soft spot for her and I would take her over Kim K any day.

  31. BlipPer01 says:

    I have seen surreal life and she clearly wanted him from the start. But I haven’t seen My Fair Brady to evaluate who’s had the upper hand in contributing to a better marriage. HOWEVER, she is a self-proclaimed (and also by medical opinion) BI-polar patient…and this, could definitely have been a major factor in him seeking the divorce. It is indeed hard work to maintain a marriage…especially if the other party has a condition (be it physical or mental). I have had my share of aforementioned undiagnosed but clearly BP tantrums in a partner…and let me tell you, it is a rollercoaster ride, wearing you completely out.

  32. Brett says:

    I thought they looked cute together but Chris turned out to be a huge control freak and she was some kind of young whacko. He become like her father and she was a wild child. He kept telling her what to do and I guess she got jack of it. I still can’t believe they lasted for so long. You could see they really did love each other but sometimes love just ain’t enough.
