Where TV's Kim Kardashian ranks among quick celeb splits

Kim Kardashian

So, Kim Kardashian's 72-day sprint from wedded bliss to divorce papers must amount to the shortest celebrity marriage ever, right?

Wrong! As a matter of fact, Miss K's marriage to basketball star Kris Humphries — which, in one of the least surprising news stories of the year, began its slow journey to Splitsville on Monday — doesn't even crack the Top 10 of shortest celeb pairings. To be a champion in this category, you have to be fast. We're talking major speed. Seriously, folks, your marriage has to last about as long as a "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" marathon on E!. (Let it be noted: All eight of Elizabeth Taylor's storied marriages lasted longer than Kardashian's. So did Mickey Rooney's. People just did things differently back then.)

Among the hall of famers in connubial quickies:

Comedy star Eddie Murphy and Babyface's ex Tracey Edmonds: 15 days (although they later claimed the wedding was never official).

"Saved by the Bell" star Mario Lopez and Doritos girl Ali Landry: 13 days.

Tattooed basketball star Dennis Rodman and 1990s relic Carmen Electra: Nine days.

Eternal show woman Cher and naughty bluesman Gregg Allman: Nine days.

"Blue Velvet" star Dennis Hopper and ex-Mamas and the Papas singer Michelle Phillips: Eight days.

Tortured pop tart Britney Spears and childhood pal Jason Alexander: Three days.

And the prize goes to ...

1980s hot mess Robin Givens and tennis pro Svetozar Marinkovic: Seven minutes! (That's how long Marinkovic said it lasted until they officially separated).

What do you think of the Kardashian split? Sound off in the comments!
