This is no laughing matter. After just eight weeks of marriage, "Saturday Night Live" alum Chris Kattan and his wife, model Sunshine Tutt, have split.
"Separated for the moment. No plans for divorce at this time," his rep told Us Magazine.
Kattan, 37, and Tutt, 31 — who began dating in 2005 after meeting at a birthday party — tied the knot this past June 28th in Yosemite Valley, Calif. Kattan popped the question at Tutt's grandmother's home in Gainesville, Texas, on Christmas Eve, 2006. He gift wrapped the ring in a present, added Usmagazine.
"She is so kind, sweet and very beautiful. She's also very funny which always is a great thing. She's also very much like me," Kattan blogged on his Website in August 2005.
"She makes me very happy," he went on. "It feels real and honest and I have more of a continuous smile than I have ever had before."
Apparently the smile quickly turned upside down, as often happens to celebrities soon after the wedding.
Any therapist or religious leader will say that the first year is the toughest as people adjust to each other’s habits and routines. But that hasn’t stopped many celebrity couples from divorcing each other after less than a year.
Jennifer Lopez and dancer Chris Judd were married and divorced in less than 10 months, Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney in less than four months, Lisa Marie Presley and Nicolas Cage in less than three months.
However, there is hope for lasting unions. Jennifer Lopez subsequently married Marc Antony on June 5, 2004, and they have now been married four years... almost a lifetime for a Hollywood marriage.
