Kaley Cuoco & Ryan Sweeting are divorcing after 21 months of marriage


True love is dead! Who would have ever thought that two people who barely knew each other when they moved in together after the first date and got engaged within a few months’ time would end up not making it as a couple? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting are divorcing after 21 tumultuous months of marriage. Ever since they got together in the summer of 2013 – when Kaley was literally just a few weeks out of her short relationship with Henry Cavill – there were tons of rumors about Kaley and Ryan. Like, some said he was a golddigger and a K-Fed. Some said Kaley put Ryan on an “allowance” and she was tired of supporting him financially. Some said that they were fighting constantly. Kaley tried to push back against the rumors earlier this year, but guess what? The rumors were probably all true.

Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting are ending their marriage.

“Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting have mutually decided to end their marriage,” Cuoco’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. “They ask for privacy at this time. No further statement will be issued regarding this matter.”

The Big Bang Theory star, 29, and the tennis player, 28, were wed on Dec. 31, 2013 at a fire-and-ice-themed wedding. The couple fought back against rumors of marriage troubles earlier this year with Cuoco taking to Instagram in April to deny the rumors.

“I have never been more proud of anyone on this planet – this guy is fighting back from a whirlwind of injuries and not to mention constant ‘conversation’ regarding our marriage and basically any daily decision we decide to make,” Cuoco wrote in April.

The pair were engaged in September 2013 after a whirlwind romance.

[From People]

I really, really hope she got a pre-nup, because Kaley made BANK during the past two years. They don’t have any kids together, thankfully, so at least they won’t fight over that. I’m hoping that the divorce goes by as quickly as the engagement and that we won’t have to hear a lot of stuff about what Kaley has “learned.” Anyone with half a brain could see that this marriage was doomed, and that Kaley was making some HUGE relationship mistakes. I tend to think Kaley was sort of like Kim Kardashian when Kim married Kris Humphries – like, Kaley just wanted to be married, and she just went with the first guy who was into it.

    They both look totally into it in that first picture.
    No even a little bit surprised this went south.

    • blogdiz says:

      Exactly …”What a shocker” ! said no one
      Also the shorter hair as you get older rule is not for everyone she really looks better with long hair

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      Actually, I was surprised they lasted over a year. Everything about this relationship seemed rushed as she always seemed really desperate to be married.

      • Original T.C. says:

        Surprised the lasted this long too. I remember how some of us celebitchy posters were saying it’s dumb to marry someone after one date and we had all these posters talking about how they got married after meeting their husbands for a short time and how happily married they are 10-20 years later. I will grab some chips and salsa to hear those people again. LOL.

      • Original T.C. says:

        Wow, finally read through the entire thread and people are blaming the divorce on her short haircut not that she barely knew this guy she married and that he moved in with her after one date! Seriously? Best part is people thinking this chick is smart and probably protected her assets from him. LOL she was dumb and desperate. I think a good reminder is needed. Celebitchy flashback, NEVER FORGET: http://www.celebitchy.com/352009/kaley_cuoco_says_ryan_sweeting_moved_in_with_her_the_day_after_their_first_date/

      • Chinoiserie says:

        They got engaged 3 months after they met and and married 3 months after that so they did not marry after one date. Or were you referring to moving in after one date. Anyway this relationship always seems doomed.

      • Zingara says:

        Original T.C., over on the Daily M they are trying to drum up a story about their house being jinxed, since they bought it from Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom – and that’s why their marriage also failed…!

      • Jenna says:

        Original TC – honestly, as one of the folks who met her partner and pretty much went from single to married in a date (not really – 2 years until we made it official. But I moved 500+miles and we settled into everything but the legality after a single date) this mess is why what makes me hide as soon as a friend start to gush about how they know the latest barfly they crashed into is “the One”… I just ~know~ I’m going to get dragged into their daydream and have them demanding I side with them because I must know exactly how perfect the situation is. Do folks meet and just ‘know’? Yeah. But good god, it’s the meteorstrike rarity – the vast majority will NOT be still together in a month, let alone a decade! I know I won the lottery. I know it should never have worked. I even know I was, frankly, a bit of a total moron to do what I did (that said – I had 6+ months of ALL living expenses put aside and was a total gypsy to start with. If I had things go south, I coulda packed up the cat and been just find starting over again, again.) and I dread every time someone else has a moment of hormone caused mental fog using my own relationship as ‘proof’. Can it work? Yup. Rarely does though. That said though… loads of folks who took their time still have marriages that crash and burn, so who knows the right way to do it anymore? Date for years, overnight marriage, it’s all a crapshoot at the best of times. All my marriage is proof of is I’m a seriously seriously lucky bitch.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      Yep, who in the world didn’t see this coming. I get a huge Britney Spears vibe from Kaley. She’s very pretty and extremely talented, but she just never looks ‘happy’ to me when she’s not on the screen (it’s her eyes). I worry about her.

      • mayamae says:

        Maybe because she was a child actor? That so often damages people. I’m not sure if it’s the stage parents, the pervasive pedophiles, or the incredible responsibility it puts on a vulnerable child.

      • Miffy says:

        ‘Extremely talented’? Really?
        She’s extremely talented the same way Jennifer Aniston is extremely talented. She can play the same sitcom sweetheart well enough for people to think that she and her adorable on screen persona are one and the same. Sure, that’s a talent, but extremely talented is Meryl Streep or Gary Oldman… not Penny from the Big Bang Theory.

      • mayamae says:

        I have no interest in arguing someone’s talent, but historically, comedic actors are always underrated, and often overlooked. I love that the Emmys split acting categories into drama and comedy.

      • lisa2 says:

        Miffy you are right in some way..

        I think that there are very few outstanding comedic actresses. There use to be what you would call legendarily comedic talent. I don’t see that today. Even looking at comedic movies. Most of the so called comedy actresses are just reading lines. They don’t have that natural thing that we can put a finger on. Without the dialogue most of them are not funny at all.
        She seems to have hit it with her show and the talent around her. I don’t know if she has longevity or not.

      • jwoolman says:

        Miffy- I think she’s very talented also. She took what was originally written as a very stereotypical role and made it her own. If you watch the first episode and then much later ones, you also see how much better she became in a short time as the character became more equal to the guys and more three-dimensional. I even like the dippy commercials she’s been in, she’s that watchable. I don’t think she will disappear with the show.

    • LA Juice says:

      you gotta cut her a little slack, this guy is KNOWN all over the west side for celebrity wife hunting shenanigans. I am sure he swooped in when she was most vulnerable and bamboozled her. poor you thing.

      I have girlfriends who dealt with this asshat in years past. He is as lazy, delusional and stupid as they come, but he can work a girl. Sent one of my friends just spiraling while he played with her heart, for her contacts.

  2. Ronda says:

    i wonder what happened to her in the last years. TBBT was already succesful but suddenly she was everywhere then the super embarassing Pr setup with Superman and then this marriage. what the heck happened?

    • Yoohoo says:

      She decided she wanted to be a celebrity and her PR people started working over time. She went from, that’s the girl from that show to magazine covers and regular gossip coverage in a very short time.

    • pwal says:

      Maybe she’s trying to break through to film and figured that a marriage was a way to assist in this transition (i.e. make TPTB take her seriously, instead of being merely a TV girl). Sadly, her recent attempt, that wedding movie with Kevin Hart and that Olaf dude tanked hard.

      Mind you, she’s not the first to marry in a bid to parlay herself into one half of a power couple. I suspect that was what Kelly Rutherford, Sherri Shephard, Bethany Frankel, etc. were trying to do, but the problem is that they took up with dudes who weren’t powerful until it came time to get unhitched and child custody issues came up. Kaley is lucky, since children aren’t involved.

      • delorb says:


        I think she just wanted to get married. I don’t think this had anything to do with PR. My problem is this, if she knew he didn’t have money BEFORE they got married, why did she think he’d suddenly turn into a self-made millionaire AFTER? And if you’re a family now, why not support him? Sometimes the woman makes more than the man and that should be okay. Money should always be discussed prior to getting married. ALWAYS.


        She didn’t stick with Henry, because Henry is gay. She would have just been his beard. As soon as she ended that one and hooked up with this one, I knew there would be issues.

      • Algernon says:

        Henry Cavill is gay? Where do people get this?

      • ctkat1 says:

        @ Algernon: It’s been a rumor for a while. Before Henry Cavill hit it big (ie. before “The Tudors” and well before Superman), he was a lot less guarded with his social life, so there were a number of photos on facebook of Henry with gay men. Then once he got Superman, all of the photos were removed from facebook (though you can still find them on the internet).

        Having gay friends doesn’t make you gay, but I think the combination of having a lot of gay friends, then removing photo evidence of those friendships off facebook as soon as he hit it big, and the fact that his romance with Kaley was so totally a PR arrangement, and he hasn’t had a successful relationship with a woman = rumors that he is gay.

      • susiecue says:

        hope they don’t have any frozen embryo “children”; That’s the new thing

      • mayamae says:

        I never pay attention to gay rumors because I think it’s everyone’s right to define their own sexuality, but people always seem to overlook the obvious. Even if he has had sex with a man, that doesn’t automatically make him gay. Angeline Jolie and Anna Paquin have had a same sex relationship, and I believe both self-identify as bisexual. Bisexual women tend to be idealized because so many straight men fantasize about two women going at it. It’s not the same with men, and it may be just as difficult for a man in Hollywood to claim bisexuality, as it is to claim homosexuality.

      • Talie says:

        Depending on what you believe, he’s either a dog who will sleep with any girl or a gay man in hiding. Did he experiment…maybe? He is an actor, after all.

        I just don’t get why he can’t find a real girlfriend. The PR flare-ups are odd.

      • Algernon says:

        @ ctkat1

        See, I think they remove photos like that because that’s how rumors like this get started (without realizing that removing the photos makes the rumors worse).

        I’m not on the “everyone in Hollywood is secretly gay” train, though, mostly because the people who had these rumors who actually turned out to be gay, to a one, eventually got caught. Luke Evans, for instance, had gay rumors for years, and was eventually confirmed for gay because of a snapchat or chatroulette, or something like that. Same thing for Matt Bomer, eventually caught out on a date with the man who became his husband. NPH, ditto, also caught out dating dudes. Henry Cavill, meanwhile, only dates women. If he was really gay, there would be no keeping a lid on it in this day and age. Someone would see him out with a man eventually. I guess you could repress it that hard and that deep (that’s what she said), but it seems like the ones who are actually gay are inevitably found out. They can’t bury it forever. It used to be a lot easier to keep it hidden (like Rock Hudson did), but with social media and every phone is a camera and the general nosiness of the public (any sense of decorum regarding celebrities is gone), it gets out eventually.

      • Bread and Circuses says:

        Well, that’s disappointing because I think Matt Bomer (who is openly gay) would have made a better Superman. I’ve always wondered whether he didn’t get considered for the role because the studio worried about backlash. It would certainly irritate me to learn another actor got the role simply because he was still in the closet and Matt wasn’t.

        But what do I know? Maybe Matt was never in the running for other reasons.

      • Lamppost says:

        Cavill’s not gay. The photos that everyone refers to in these daft threads are still there for all to see and they are pretty innocuous pics of him having in beers etc with friends, some of whom are gay. You can’t delete the internet. WB were responsible for the Kaley thing as the Man of Steel box office numbers were dropping off and they were looking to promote him, but I think her stunt queen thirst backfired badly and he bailed.

      • mom2two says:

        @Algernon…I am with you that I am not on the”everyone in Hollywood is secretly gay,” train either. Luke Evans also gave an interview years ago when he did the play Taboo and supposedly confirmed he was gay and that he would not let any degree of success hide that. Except that when he started getting movie roles, he or his agents started having him back away from those statements.
        I say supposedly because I have never seen the interview in question.

    • Alex says:

      She wanted the celeb spotlight. Not content with just being on a hit show she wanted the “celebrity” of it all. It’s funny because she did go from no tab gossip to constant presence.

    • Talie says:

      I actually thought it was a decent match with Cavill, but I’m not sure why she got spooked by the PR. She ended it abruptly.

    • Wren says:

      Don’t forget the unfortunate haircut. I get wanting a change, but that one was very ill-advised.

      • Ella says:

        Yup, the hair was a factor. She’s quite an odd-looking bunny, but with the long hair she could pass for a classic hot girl. The pixie cut was not flattering.

      • Anna says:

        Okay, this may sound funny but I have noticed that when women cut their hair, it eerily often spells the end for their relationships (with men). Whenever I see a woman cut her hair, I say, uh-oh, just wait… And usually soon after, there are reports of “problems.” This isn’t anything to do with my preferences as I love women’s hair in all lengths and styles, but I feel like there might be something to this… I think that men are biologically hardwired, for the most part, to like long hair on women and when a woman cuts it, it really affects men’s desire. Women often cut when they get into their early-, mid-40s or when they have kids. I think this has something to do with why some men’s desire levels shift (of course the massive life-changes) around these times…

      • qwerty says:

        YES! Men drop their long term partners and mothers of their children after they hit middle age cause those dumb beetches cut their hair! That’s brilliant, Anna. Thanks for your input.

      • Anne says:

        @Anna – if you notice a correlation, it could also be that something in the woman is just ready for a change. sometimes big inner shifts are reflected in the choice to change a hairstyle. those shifts could extent to wanting a change in their relationship and readiness to initiate one.

      • Kitten says:

        @qwerty-LOL. I just spit Red Bull on my laptop. Damn you and damn this terrible hangover.

      • Canoki says:

        @Qwerty – sounds a wee bit like projection on your part. Anna’s not saying that at all. Have you never noticed women often get haircuts after a breakup or just preceding? I’ve had many a friend get bangs and then go through a breakup. It has nothing to do with the men. My stylist wanted to give me bangs once, but when I said no because I had recently gone though a breakup she admitted that it is a thing with women changing their hair during major emotional life moments.

      • Nic919 says:

        Qwerty isn’t wrong. Anna literally says in her comment that men are biologically hard wired to like long hair on women and lose desire when women cut it.
        It’s not projection when the words are there in black and white.

      • mayamae says:

        @ Anna, If there’s a correlation, I think it’s similar to women losing weight right before a breakup. I don’t think men are dumping women because they’ve toned their bodies. Either the women are changing because they sense their relationship is in trouble, or they’re changing for themselves and looking to move on. Miranda Lambert immediately pops into my head.

      • Miffy says:

        Dear Anna,
        please enjoy this brief list of women with short hair who unfortunately no man will ever look twice at because all men need to procreate with strictly long haired women:
        Audrey Hepburn
        Halle Berry
        Amber Rose
        Ruby Rose
        Angelina Jolie circa 1998
        Charlize Theron
        Winona Ryder
        Jennifer Lawrence

        Let’s all bow our heads in a moment of silence for how atrociously unattractive our short haired sisters are. It’d be nice if even one man could come forward and take one for the team just to boost these poor she-goblins’ self esteem.

      • Zombie Shortcake says:

        Our moment of Red Pill for the day.

      • Ronda says:

        there is correlation between women cutting their hair and changes in their lives though (not men dumping them but the women changing something). like Coco Chanel said: “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life”
        this does not mean it has anything to do with this situation though.

      • Emily C. says:

        I’ve chopped my hair off a lot of times because I’ve gotten sick of it. Never has it done a thing to my relationships. I’ve cut my hair short like 4 times in my 10-year relationship with my now-husband.

        You’re “noticing” something that isn’t there simply because you’re looking for it. Sometimes women do make drastic changes in look AFTER breakups because they want a change, but cutting off your hair doesn’t drive men away. And the hard-wired to prefer long hair bs? Um, are you reading the ramblings of some evo-psych hack, perchance?

      • jwoolman says:

        While changing hairstyle may be a sign of wanting/ needing change in general, the only way to have a quick change in hair length is to cut it. You can’t grow hair long overnight unless you want to pay to add somebody else’s hair to yours.

        I also doubt a men-prefer-long-hair thing hard-wired into their brains. There are certainly cultures where the norm is very short hair on women, even shaved heads. It can’t be hard-wired. European hair was often kept long on both men and women until modern times, although men’s styles seem to fluctuate pretty drastically.

        Some men may be uncomfortable with change of any sort, however. Changing hairstyles or weight or anything can be perceived as a threat to their comfortable life. Also today, Hollywood types use wigs and hair extensions to make theirs look long and if a man takes Hollywood as his standard of beauty (or the Duggar women….), then I suppose he might think long hair is better. Many men may not even realize it’s usually fake, just as they might not realize how different women look with professional makeup. They would walk right past the same woman without her makeup on and not know it was the same person. The differences astonish me, too, and probably for the same reason (besides my general lack of attention to faces, I recognize voices and body language instead): I don’t wear makeup or wigs or extensions and so don’t know how they work, plus in realspace I’m usually around people who don’t either. I’m sensitive to fragrances so I actually avoid women wearing makeup (or men who look too well-dressed, they’re more likely to be saturated with perfumey products although the worst I ran into was a UPS delivery guy…).

      • G says:

        I wish it weren’t true but my husband said the same thing :(

        “Maybe she shouldn’t have cut her hair?”

        I’m thinking of chopping mine, you know, to see if he leaves? If he does, he was never worth it.

    • lunchcoma says:

      She realized that The Big Bang Theory would die eventually, and she decided she’d rather be Jennifer Aniston with the movie roles and the media attention than David Scwimmer, who just has a lot of money.

      • K says:

        I could be wrong but I think David schwimmer produces and directs a lot of stuff that does really well. I’m not a fan so I don’t follow him but I remember reading one do the other guys told off a reporter about it. He might actually have the most successful in terms of projects that made money/profit of any cast member we just don’t see him. I also think it’s a choice.

  3. smcollins says:

    No! Way! Well, this is just shocking…SHOCKING I tell you!

  4. The Original G says:

    Ah. Too bad. It’s still gotta hurt for a variety of reasons.

  5. OrangeBlohan says:

    I hope she has a pre-nup and doesn’t jump into another relationship right away.

  6. mom2two says:

    I can’t say I am shocked but she sounded like she really wanted to this to work, so I do feel badly for her.
    I just hope she did have a pre-nup too.

  7. Lilacflowers says:

    There’s this thing called “casual dating.” More people should try it instead of rushing into commitments with people they don’t know and with whom they are not compatible.

    Always sad to see a marriage fail but this one was doomed from the start.

    • ican'tsnap says:

      Yes – what’s wrong with dating for a few years? Just live together!!! Why involve legal paperwork?!

      • mayamae says:

        I think some women romanticize marriage. I also think some women marry the man they’re with to “legitimize” a shaky relationship. Why else did Elizabeth Taylor marry eight times?

        ETA: I don’t mean to compare Kaley to Elizabeth Taylor. At Kaley’s age, Elizabeth was on her fourth husband. I do remember hearing Taylor say, in essence, that she was old-fashioned and married every man she had sex with. I think she married the men she cheated with, in part, to calm the scandals. I don’t why, but people are more likely to be forgiven by the public if they marry their affair.

      • Esmom says:

        I think some people just really are so insecure that they feel they need to lock it down legally. I’ve known quite a few women like that, and the latest example is the mom of a high school freshman girl I know. The girl had had a boyfriend for a couple months and the mom is telling people that he might be “the one.” Scary. I just hope her daughter has a better sense of self-worth.

  8. Yabby says:

    When you spend most of your free time on social media trying prove your relationship to the public, the only person who needs convincing is yourself. Instagram lies.

  9. Nancy says:

    Wait I’m so shocked, I mean of course they are. This chick runs on triple A batteries. Going on pap notified coffee runs with Superman kind of showed us her agenda. She probably has three or four marriages in her future when all is said and done. She has to remove the look at me sign on her back first though. Please give them their privacy as they go through this hard time. Her life is scripted. Ah.

  10. Bitter says:

    K Fed 2.0 cashes is then. Took him long enough!!

  11. Sarah says:

    I’ve been waiting for a post on this…

    No one is surprised the tennis K-Fed and Kaley didn’t work out. It’s too bad she couldn’t see that it probably wasn’t the best choice to move so quickly, have a gigantic wedding, move into a cursed Kardashian house and spend the better part of a year protesting speculation of marital bliss. It was as transparent as it gets…hopefully a lesson learned.

  12. OrigialTessa says:

    I think something happened, something bad… Just based on the statement and the abrupt deletions of the social media, this isn’t going to be a friendly “respect and love” kind of divorce.

  13. JJ says:

    Everyone would have blamed their short courtship regardless of if they separated now or 10 years from now. People are so judgmental about short relationships, but the bottom line is the divorce rate is 50% in this country and all of those divorces aren’t from people who got married after 3 months. I’m sure I’m super sensitive to this because my husband and I got engaged after 3 months, but 5 years later we’re still happy and in love-so suck it! :)

    • Nancy says:

      She wanted to me married. The problem being it seemed it didn’t matter to whom. She made herself so visible with Henry Cavill when I really really don’t think he was that into her. Perhaps the divorce rate wouldn’t be so high if people actually knew their partner before running down the aisle. Young girls like her seem a bit desperate and too anxious to be a wife. I knew my husband a very short time before marriage, but I knew the day I met him he was my lobster. It’s chemistry, fate, love, friendship…..in her case probably lust which has been proven doesn’t a marriage make. Maybe a kick ass honeymoon, but that lasts what…how long was she married…two years!

    • megs283 says:

      Studies shown that the divorce rate of 50% isn’t accurate – the real numbers are much more promising. To quote an article “About 70 percent of marriages that began in the 1990s reached their 15th anniversary, up from roughly 65 percent of those that began in the 1970s and 1980s. And couples who wed in the 2000s are divorcing at even lower rates.” The article continues on to say that if the current trends continue, it’s estimated that roughly 2/3rds of marriages won’t dissolve. I can’t remember if we can link to articles, but here it is: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/6256956

      That said – I have no comments on your short courtship other than congrats! When you know, you know!

      • Wren says:

        I was reading that the divorce rate is really that high, but mostly among the baby boomer generation. The speculation was that they grew up with the “you must get married right out of high school or college” mentality while also being on the cusp of the de-stigmatization of divorce. So you got a lot of people marrying before they were truly ready but then it was okay to split up so they did. Hence a high divorce rate.

        Now that this “wave” is passing, the divorce rate is going down. With people waiting longer to get married, considering the decision more carefully because you don’t really HAVE to get married anymore to live together, and not wishing to repeat their parents’ mistakes, things are looking better.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I’m 48 and I have been to a lot of weddings, most of them have resulted in divorce, way more than 50%.

      • Andrea says:

        My parents(in their late 60′s/early 70′s) added up how many weddings they’ve been to in the past 30 years and 2/3 are now divorced. In fact, they are going to a 2nd wedding of a friend’s son in December. My dad said going to 2nd weddings is getting common now for them.

    • byland says:

      People also need to remember that just because two people are married doesn’t mean they’re happy. Even if they stay married a long time. My biological mother is proof of that. Married after less than three months together, that was my parents. The years of living in that house were hell, and the fighting started THE DAY of the wedding. The marriage itself lasted nearly ten years, before my father finally dumped her when they lost custody of me to my (happily divorced) grandparents. I still see him, despite there not being any DNA between us, but you couldn’t pay me to see her.

      In short, marriage fail all the time, but especially when idiots get married.

    • Wren says:

      Just because it worked for you doesn’t mean it works for everyone. People are different, and motivations for getting married soon into the relationship vary widely. Or waiting a long time to get married, for that matter. Neither way is the Right Way because there isn’t one Right Way to decide when to marry. I’m sorry you’ve faced judgement over it, but really, how many of those people were truly maliciously hoping you’d split up just to make them right in their “you got married too soon” opinion? For me, it’s more surprise because that approach would NOT have worked for me and my husband. Like, “oh wow, really?” not “ugh, you’re so wrong”.

        Statistically speaking, people who get married before age 25 are more likely to get divorced. Doesn’t mean ALL people who get married before age 25 will get a divorce, but the odds are against them compared to people who marry in their late 20s to mid 30s. The same goes with these sort of circumstances such as only knowing someone for a few months compared to knowing someone for a year or more. There is always exceptions to the rule, but one isn’t doing himself or herself any favors by jumping into marriage with a person s/he barely knows at a young age. People who are the exception (for now – who knows if those marriages will stand the test of time either) always like to make themselves into examples for why making decisions that prove almost always disastrous are okay. That being said, people are free to make their own choices. No one should openly criticize a person’s choices even if one predicts that the relationship/marriage will end badly. People must learn from their own mistakes.

      My parents got engaged after 6 mos, married 6 mos later, but they say they knew after 2 mos. They’re going on 33 years and they’re still very happy and in love. Some people just know. I think the personalities of the people involved determines that kind of thing.

      ETA: I don’t have one of those personalities lol I need some time and space before I make that decision.

      • Antonym says:

        My parents were married within six months of meeting and they’re still married almost 37 years later. It wasn’t all sunshine and roses (is it ever?), but they’re right for each other.

        I married after a short period of dating and filed for divorce before the two year mark (I pulled a Kaley!). We were not right for each other. Maybe we would have figured that out prior to marriage if we dated longer, or maybe we would have dated longer with a shorter marriage- who knows its all speculation.

        I disagree with one of the previous commenter’s statement that this indicates she’s “got three more marriages in her”. It’s been a decade since my divorce and no new marriage, sometimes the short marriage makes you even more aware of what you want (and don’t want).

    • Ella says:

      Well, of course not all divorces are due to short courtships, and some great marriages follow short courtships. But that doesn’t mean that short courtships are a good idea generally. I’m sure statistics support that.

    • msw says:

      Biologically speaking, ift takes about two years for the new relationship oxy to wear off.

      *checks watch* oh.

      Doesn’t mean it never works. But I think knowing someone a long time helps more often than not.

    • Veronica says:

      My sister got engaged less than six months after meeting her current husband, and they’re still together 5+ years later, too. (And it hasn’t been an easy five years, either – my sister was in an accident that may have left her with lifelong damage less than a year after they married.) She actually told me later on that she knew a month into the relationship that they both knew they would wind up together but decided to hold off a bit longer. So I don’t think fast courtships are too terrible provided both partners are mature enough to separate a legitimate connection versus biochemistry in overdrive – the problem is that most people, particularly very young ones, can’t do that.

      Honestly, I don’t think what Kaley did was too bad in the long run. She was young and wanted to get married and got caught up in the chase of getting what she wanted without really thinking it through, which is a mistake that MANY young men and women make all the time. She’ll have to eat crow for awhile since it happened in the public eye, but eventually she’ll move on and hopefully go about it more wisely next time. It would be far more problematic if, say, they’d decided to have kids right away.

  14. Jessica says:

    I’m just shocked it almost lasted two whole years. He’s a loser and an asshole, and it seemed like she only married him as a reaction to the whole ridiculous Henry Cavill situation.

  15. vanna says:

    it’s not 23, but 21 months. yeah I think everybody saw this one coming. Hopefully she won’t have to pay him too much.

  16. Amberica says:

    i didn’t expect it to last, but I personally did the same things with my husband- moved in immediately, married within three months. Obviously, we too had a lot of naysayers (ok, nothing but naysayers), and 10 years on we’re the happiest couple I know. Clearly I’m projecting, but I always root a bit for couples like us. So, you know, I’m destined for disappointment.

    • Jayna says:

      I don’t see a problem with it, but the chances of it not working out are higher. You can just know. The problem is myself back in the day and many of my friends even now cling on to the relationships living off of the memory of the first three months when the boyfriend was so attentive, romantic, kind, interested, passionate, you thought career driven as far as a hard worker, when the rest of the relationship after the first three or four months has been anything but in one or some of those areas down the road. Often you just aren’t seeing the total person those first few months in the blush of intense infatuation and the fun of love and what we are revealing to each other, or just incompatibility ultimately for a long-term marriage, or many people marry quickly because they got pregnant and a baby in a relationship can add stress.

      My friend fell hard for a guy. They were madly in love, spent all their time together. She said she would have married him within that time of the first several months. That shocked me. She didn’t seem the type. But she was at a certain stage of her life, tired of dating, career going good, and loved that feeling with him of being in love and got along well. They not only moved in together within three months, but then bought a house that first year as she was ignoring many signs. The guy was cheap as the day is long, dividing everything down the middle obsessively spendingwise. He never showed that the first three months. His sex drive took a huge nose dive and really affected her self-esteem, and he was not career driven at all, just had done well earlier and now just coasted as his income plummeted. After two years she had to admit this was who he was really, not the person he presented as the first three months. They broke up because she felt she was living with a roommate ultimately and had hung in there too long clinging to the memory, not the reality. They ultimately became good friends.

      You got lucky marrying after three months that you were both still the same people underneath that you would respect and still love being with.

  17. Palar says:

    Meh, her first marriage lasted longer than mine did. Better luck next time!

  18. pwal says:

    I’m curious if she will embrace ‘feminism’ (read: the angry warrior woman version that the less smart believe is the whole concept of it) if ole dude decides to go after her money.

  19. TheOriginalTiffany says:

    Not to pick, but they married on 12/31, how is this 23 months? I’m sure he is going to get paid for this little foray, we all know he isn’t making a dime from tennis.

  20. Chloe says:

    God, he looks so much like John Mayer in the photos with short hair. ‘Nuff said?

  21. Jayna says:

    Surprise, surprise, said no one

  22. vauvert says:

    I still feel bad for her, like anytime a marriage breaks up… But yes, at least there are no kids. Splitting money is hard but you can earn it again, kids… Not so much.
    That being said she reminds me a lot of Jen A. Great comedic timing in one series, long running, lots of money, but she doesn’t strike me as a particularly good actress – just like Jen playing Rachel, Kaley seems to mostly play herself in BBT. Nit sure how much she will do outside of that with any success, not that she will lack cash.
    Also, I do really hope that she will stop saying dumb things about how she is not a feminist because she wants to go home and cook for her husband.
    On a side note, I agree that the abrupt end, removing him from her social media and the lack of obligatory “we will stay friends la la la” suggests that something bad happened.

    • Jayna says:

      Splitting money? There’s no way she didn’t get a pre-nup with her Big Bang money, which she has been on for like eight or nine years, one of the most highly rated shows. She’s been making one million dollars an episode since 2014 plus signing bonuses, back-end profits. She has that great commercial series with William Shatner, Priceline, which I’m sure brings her some really nice, big cash. She’s worth a lot of money and would never have put her fortune on the line. She’s earned a LOT the two years she was married, and I can’t imagine she got married without protecting that income.

      He will leave with whatever was put in the pre-nup and a car or whatever else was agreed to. He might even get alimony for a short period of time since she was supporting him.

      • Algernon says:

        I hope she has a pre-nup, but a lot of women, especially younger ones, don’t ask for them when they’re the higher-earning partner. It’s not “romantic”, and sometimes their partners pressure them not to. If she really did have him on an allowance, I hope that means she was smart enough to protect her assets legally, too, but I won’t be surprised if she didn’t.

        Ladies, always get a prenup, even if you think you don’t have “anything”.

      • pleaseicu says:

        IIRC she made comments before the marriage about just knowing it was going to work and not needing a prenup.

        Hopefully her agent/manager or financial adviser or someone else close to her talked some sense into her about the prenup. She was the third highest earning actress on TV last year, earning close to $28 million IIRC.

  23. NJ says:

    She may be rich but she’s also dumb, annoying and a stage 5 clinger. Sooner or later that gets on nerves. There were newa that she was treating him like her pet, keeping track of where ever he goes…….a man with a little bit of dignity wouldn’t live with this nut case.

    But, i’m sure she will fins someone and get married/engaged by next summer.

  24. InvaderTak says:

    Good luck getting those tattoos removed. That’ll be painful.

  25. grabbyhands says:

    Wow, who saw this coming? Besides everyone, I mean.

    Obvs, each couple is different and it IS possible for people to meet and connect and know that they are with the right person after s really short amount of time. It is rare, but it happens.

    But I think it was obvious to everyone that this wasn’t actually what was going on here. As someone said earlier, it seemed like at some point she was tired of being somewhat anonymous (I had no idea who she was before the HC thing since I don’t watch TBBT and she was keeping a low profile prior to that) and wanted to be more of a celebrity and her PR people really started earning their paychecks after that-lightning fast fauxmance with Superman straight into a whirlwind “true romance/soul mate” courtship marriage that inevitably ended quickly and now she has the potential to get a lot of column inches being solemn about her divorce and how she is going to “move on with her life and look forward to the future”.

    It makes me wonder if she got new representation at some point and they convinced her to start playing all these PR games. By most accounts, prior to the fauxmance she seemed okay to fly under the radar a bit and wasn’t an attention seeker and was a more low key type of person.

    Anyway, I hope she has a high pain tolerance when she has to get her wedding date lasered off her back. Or maybe she’ll get something to cover it,

  26. The Original Mia says:

    I’m shocked at how not shocked I am by this news.

  27. Lindsay says:

    “OMG NO, they were perfect for each other, I could’ve sworn that relationship was gonna last forever!” – said no one ever.

  28. bettyrose says:

    Just shows that Hollywood is trapped in the 1950s that marriage is still considered a strategic career move to get more publicly and/or be taken more seriously.

  29. minx says:

    btw It’s nice to have a CB post on Saturday.

  30. hahahaha says:

    His hair in that last picture! Wtf?? I stared and stared and stared at it trying to figure out if it was a shadow and if it was a shadow, where did the shadow come from?? But nope, it really is his hair! Sorry, but it is just weird looking and doesn’t look real……! I really obsessed about that too much. Lol 😱

    Oh, the marriage falling apart, I forgot that’s what this is about (not the hair??? Haha), totally shocked, didn’t see that coming before the marriage. At all. 😏

  31. hahahaha says:

    Ok. One more thing about that last picture, does she have her hand turned around and gripping his arm so hard so he won’t run away??? Or to show off her ring? Her nails are going into his arm so hard, who puts their arm around someone like that? Ok, I’m done with that picture. I hope. 😁

  32. Angie says:

    They got married on New Years Eve and reportedly said I DO when midnight struck. Honestly, getting engaged or married on a holiday or birthday is awful because that day will always be branded as the day their failed marriage began.

    Also, am I the only one that has an extremely strong feeling that this will be Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello as well? They’re getting married in November and they dated for 6 months. They are overexposed and have been promoting their relationship since the beginning so I smell divorce or an annulment depending on how long it lasts.

    • minx says:

      I sort of think SV and JM might last (a little longer) because they are older and she’s been married before. I could be wrong, of course, but they do look crazy about each other. Whereas these two….

    • Jayna says:

      They may have gotten engaged at six months, but they are getting married a year and five months into the relationship. That’s a big difference than getting married at three months. It doesn’t mean they will fare any better, though, considering she was engaged to that awful Nick Loeb, which showed she was no wiser than someone much younger.

    • Nic919 says:

      I can see those two lasting because they are approximately at the same level of fame. And they are older and have dated for a while.

    • pwal says:

      I think that Sofia and Joe will last longer, but she just comes across as pretty thirsty, whereas he seems less so. Plus she seems to be on this kick to ‘prove’ something, and with that Loeb douche likely shouting $h*t from the sidelines, she could allow herself to be distracted by it and not be focused on the marriage.

  33. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    Be positive….her marriage lasted more long time than KK’s 2nd marriage or Britney’s 1rst marriage

  34. Vampi says:

    My first thought was “Awww, I’ll bet she is regretting those roman numerals of their wedding date she had tattooed on the back of her (is it her neck?)”, but yeah…that’s going to be painful.
    At least she can’t see them. Betcha she grows her hair long now to cover it up.
    She looks so much better with long hair. I’d LOVE to have short hair, but I don’t have the face for it either.

  35. word says:

    We all saw this coming. She seems smart enough to get a pre-nup. Let’s hope anyways !

  36. Tiffany says:

    On one hand, from the outside looking in this relationship seemed disaterous.

    On the other, she gave it a go. As someone who is cautious of all types of relationships, I envy ones who can go all in, heart on sleeve. That I cannot throw shade at them on.

  37. Lis says:

    As soon as I heard they broke up I came straight to Celebitchy to see what you guys had to say about it. I can’t even feel sorry for her. It was a stupid move and she is fully aware it was a stupid move to marry almost a stranger. But, she will hopefully learn from this and maybe make a better decision next time around – I hope!

  38. boredblond says:

    Unlike some of the other commenters, I don’t think the marriage was a pr scheme at all..she’s been a working actress since she was a little kid and I think she wanted some ‘normal’ in her life (the cooking comments)..or her idea of normal. Hope it’s not too co$tly a lesson..

    • OhDear says:

      I don’t think people are saying that *this* relationship was PR; they’re talking about the Cavill one being PR. That being said, she’s at the age where some women start freaking out about needing to get married and she seemed to be one of those women, so I’m not surprised that she rushed into one that unfortunately for the both of them did not turn out so well.

  39. Sparkly says:

    If only someone would have accepted my bet, I would have made bank too… (But of course no one was betting the other way. I don’t even think she was.)

  40. Lea says:

    Like most people i was sure they won’t make it, but everytime the predictions turn right i’m a little bit sad . It’s always hard when a marriage ends. No mattee who it is. I don’t wish it on anybody

  41. Rose says:

    Didn’t she say something about being an old fashioned housewife? That she liked serving him? I thought it was odd that she would serve him after she worked all day. Considering I don’t see anything about him working. I personally wouldn’t be ok being the one that works and cooks the meals while the guy sits on his behind all day.

  42. Algernon says:

    She had one of the ugliest celebrity weddings I’ve ever seen photos of. Just my two cents.

    Also, I bet Henry Cavill is going, “Dodged a bullet!” today.

  43. 7-11's Hostage says:

    “I’m hoping that the divorce goes by as quickly as the engagement and that we won’t have to hear a lot of stuff about what Kaley has “learned.”” Lol, you’re asking entirely too much. She’s just the right kind of vapid who would prattle endlessly about all the lessons they’ve learned/no-regrets-everything-made-me-who-I-am-today drivel. She can barely sort out what a feminist is, and all she had to do was look up the word on her phone.

  44. livinglavitalola says:

    I use to like kaley when tbbt first started and when she was on that show with JR. But, idk why but she seems…off nowanddays. The awful haircut doesn’t help either. Some women can wear short cuts and some can’t. Kaley can’t. Hopefully she got a prenup cuz he was just as desperate to get married as she was but for different reasons. I don’t even agree with alimony when no kids are involved and they weren’t even married 5 yrs.

    • Tiffany says:

      I agree. Also, I just get a feeling that he is going to get his career on track. Just to prove something more than anything else.

    • Katija says:

      Her face shape is COMPLETELY wrong for short hair. She’s a very slender girl, but she has a round face that looks… I don’t mean this in a fat-shaming way, but her cheeks look really big with short hair.

      Like Morena Baccarin is on the front page… SHE looked awesome with a pixie because she has a thin, heart-shaped face. I’m not calling Kaley fat at ALL (you’d be CRAZY to), but her face looks TOO round and TOO big with short hair. Long hair would compliment her round face and full cheeks better. Plenty of gorgeous women have round faces and full cheeks, but they should be aware of their face shape when picking a haircut.

  45. Sunsetsnow says:

    She made a fool of herself with Superman, felt embarrassed, had a rebound quickie marriage, and now a divorce. We all saw this coming, but she is young and, hopefully, has learned her lesson. I really hope she has an ironclad prenup. I am not going to call her husband names. None of us know what went on in their marriage. Breaking up is very painful. I have never been married, and we all know it is hard work. Better luck to her next time. Haircuts don’t break marriages.

  46. Jezza says:

    I no longer believe in true Love!😥

    Oh, you mean we’re not talking about Brad divorcing his look of perma BO? No?

    My mistake, Carry on, peeps!!

  47. lunchcoma says:

    So, any bets on how long it will be before she’s dating again and who the next guy is? I’m going to go with…Derek Hough, who seems to exist to make recently-dumped women look like they’re not lonely and single, and that it’ll happen in time for them to be seen Christmas shopping together.

  48. Emily C. says:

    Henry Cavill had a long-term girlfriend he broke up with and then hopped right back to after he broke up with Kaley Cuoco. Maybe he’s bi, maybe he was experimenting in his youth, but he’s not gay.

    Now, KALEY on the other hand. Her extraordinary level of fake does seem to be hiding something.

  49. stinky says:

    Scarlett Johansen is another one who needs her long hair back.

  50. Marianne says:

    I actually think she probably was trying to prove to Johnny and herself that she was over him by jumping into marriage so quickly.

  51. Zozo says:

    I think she was verrry into him, and he was mainly attracted to her fame/money/status..she wanted to believe was in love with HER. They got married too fast, and he quit working..because unless you love your job, what is the point? with her income wouldn’t his pretty much just go to taxes? I remember when she bought him that car and he seemed embarrassed.. he probably felt emasculated from being supported by her..and I bet his punk ass through a hissy fit. I can totally see him cheating or acting out in some way to feel like a “man”..don’t think he ever felt the way she did. She seemed to have really believed it could have worked long term. Hate it for her..but hopefully she won’t make the same mistake. I hope if screwed her over some how, he does not get a big pay day in the divorce!

  52. Kate says:

    21 months is a long time to put up with a freeloader. Glad she finally came to her senses.

  53. Elizabeth says:

    I always thought Kaley was so normal until she dated Superman for a week. Then she became obsessed with the paparazzi. I think part of the reason she got married was for publicity. I heard they do NOT have a pre-nup so it’s gonna get very messy. These rich, young girls need to stop rushing into marriage and start listening to their lawyers.

  54. Betti says:

    Everyone saw this coming. She’s a bit effed up and he has opportunist written all over him.

    From what i recall there is no prenup and considering how much she’s now getting per TBBT episode he’ll be laughing all the way to the bank.

    This divorce is going to get messy and cost her dear.

  55. K says:

    I hope she has an iron clad prenup, because this girl has earned some serious money and I would hate to see her lose it because she stupidly wanted a fairytale marriage.

    I also hope she has learned that marriage is actually a commitment and serious and not a fairytale that will make life perfect.

  56. Evyn says:

    I once went on a date with a man, he moved in right away, we got engaged 3 months later, and eloped very shortly after that. Um. It didn’t work out. Shocker! Less than two semi-turbulent, unhappy, somehow very, very boring years.

  61. Alana says:

    That was shocking news! Said no one

    Exhibit A


  64. VesperNIte says:

    I got engaged once after only knowing the guy for three months. If we had had tons of cash we would have made it down the aisle and ended up divorced. But we were normal folks, so broke up instead after a year and half together. Luckily no kids were involved, he was a total douche. I won’t rush it again. Even if you think you know….TAKE YOUR TIME! If it’s real he isn’t going anywhere.
