Love her or hate her, Kim Kardashian is a celebrity with staying power. Her original claim to fame might have been a sex tape scandal, but she's taken that infamy and monetized it like no one's business. Whether she's starring in a reality show, marketing Kim K-themed products, or breaking the internet, the woman knows how to pull focus like no one else.
However, she just can't seem to win in the world of love. Her first marriage was to producer Damon Thomas from 2000 until 2003.

Richard Pryor was a stand up comedian who wasn't afraid to tell it like it is. That was great in terms of his success in the industry, but it might have hurt him a little bit when it came to love. He just couldn't quite seem to keep a wife longer than a few years at a time.
Richard Pryor was married seven times, including four marriages (to Patricia Price, Deborah McGuire, Jennifer Lee, and Flynn Belaine) that only lasted about a year. That's got to be a record or something. His longer marriages included those to Shelley Bonus (1967-1969) and a remarriage to Jennifer Lee in 2001. Total number of marriages: 7

Funnyman Mickey Rooney made audiences laugh throughout his 90 year career. Let that sink in--he was in the business for almost an entire century!

Zsa Zsa Gabor was a Hungarian-American actress known for her stunning good looks and charming personality. Gabor joins her kid sister Eva on this list. Multiple marriages must run in the family.
