Vienna Girardi is a contestant on the 14th season of The Bachelor, pining for hunky Jake Pavelka along with 24 other aspiring trophy...

Some celebrity couples are made in heaven, making their fans believe in romance, passion and everlasting love even at the highest levels of fame and fortune.

Just not these ones. Like at all.

In celebration of Valentine's Day, many romantic duos will celebrate with flowers, gifts, meals, dates and public displays of affection. Nauseating, but cute.

These couples, on the other hand, are best known for fighting - in the media, in person and/or on TV - and breaking up a lot. Sometimes with police involved.

Hey, when you're a celebrity gossip site, you can't function without the dysfunctional, so at least they bring the entertainment value and then some, right?

Here are 14 truly toxic twosomes that never should've been a thing:

14 Toxic Couples We Can't Believe Were a Thing
Rihanna and Chris Brown dated for two decent chunks of time, the first of which ending after he beat her senseless. Never a good sign. Nor was taking him back after that, but she's moved on with Drake ... thank goodness. Good luck, Karrueche!

Rihanna and Chris Brown

1. Rihanna and Chris Brown

Rihanna and Chris Brown dated for two decent chunks of time, the first of which ending after he beat her senseless. Never a good sign. Nor was taking him back after that, but she's moved on with Drake ... thank goodness. Good luck, Karrueche!


Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil

2. Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil

Perhaps the most lethal of any love we've ever seen, Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil abused drugs so fervently that she could never recover from that viscious cycle, passing away at age 27. He, meanwhile, ended up locked up for a long time.


Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva

3. Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva weren't together long, and for good reason. These two went nuclear on each other ... well mostly him on her voicemail.


Jessica Simpson and John Mayer

4. Jessica Simpson and John Mayer

Jessica Simpson and John Mayer equals sexual napalm. That's never healthy. Only sexual.


Ronnie Magro-Ortiz and Sammi Giancola

5. Ronnie Magro-Ortiz and Sammi Giancola

Ronnie and Sammi from Jersey Shore. These two need no introduction. Just clips of them brawling. Of which there are plenty.


Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

6. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had a long love affair that involved him taking her virginity and a whole lot of partying and frequent breakups, fights and general emotional turmoil. It's possible it wasn't meant to be. And by possible we mean obvious.


Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley

7. Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley of Teen Mom fame were fighting more often than not. Often, things even got physical between the on-off couple, and it was scary.


Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler

8. Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler

Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler break up on The Hills. It was a frequent sight. Very frequent.


Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi

9. Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi

The Bachelor couples rarely stand the test of time, but Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi were doomed from the start. Reliver their amazing public breakup and you will see why.


Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers

10. Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers

Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers, who are still technically married, were only together as a couple for a few months ... during which she aborted his baby and both were arrested for heroin possession and assault. They also feuded on Twitter a lot - even by her standards. Not healthy.


Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

11. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were married two years and had sex at least that many times, as evidenced by their two sons. How in the world did these two ever get married? Okay, we can grasp why K-Fed married her (see photo). Just not the reverse ...


Kim Kardashian and Ray J

12. Kim Kardashian and Ray J

Ray J hit it first, and he filmed it. The XXX-rated Kim Kardashian marked the end of the duo's relationship, though it catapulted her to fame, making it a net positive, we suppose. Ray then relased a song CALLED "I Hit it First," which is just hilarious.


Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas

13. Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas

Taylor Swift has had a lot of boyfriends and a lot of breakups. Joe Jonas is the only one to dispatch her via voicemail, however.


Farrah Abraham and James Deen

14. Farrah Abraham and James Deen

Okay, it was a fake relationship that she tried to pretend led to a leaked sex tape that was actually just a porno. But still, Farrah Abraham and James Deen simply DID NOT WORK as a couple.


Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston

15. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston

There are no words.

Dreams do come true. At least 10-20 percent of the time.

Fans know that a final rose does not guarantee a lifetime of happiness, but The Bachelor has produced some couples that have stood the test of time. At least lately.

And with Juan Pablo Galavis' season in full swing, ABC caught us up on some of its recent success stories as part of its "Juan-uary" series of Sunday specials.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are set to tie the knot next weekend. They were one of the duos featured on The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories last night.

The others:

Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell

14. Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell

Juan Pablo's now-infamous non-proposal made him persona non grata for many fans, but he and winner Nikki Ferrell are still together and - gasp - happy.


  • Trista Rehn married fireman Ryan Sutter in a ceremony that was televised in 2003. Still the gold standard for the show, over a decade later.
  • Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. The most recent Bachelorette picked Chris at the end of Season 9 last year. They're still engaged.
  • Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. After she chose J.P. on The Bachelorette Season 7 finale, Ashley married J.P. in December 2012.
  • Molly and Jason Mesnick. Jason was engaged to Melissa Rycroft, but dumped her for runner-up (and now-wife) Molly on the After the Final Rose special. Close enough.

Will Juan Pablo end up in the success or failure column? The Bachelor spoilers shed some light on that if you're interested ... but the odds are not good.

That's like five success stories in like 27 seasons. Just saying.

The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard has four sexy suitors left, but the true object affection is newly-single host Chris Harrison, a tabloid hilariously claims.

Star cites "insiders" involved with the hit ABC reality show talking about how close the pair have become, with some even saying they are "madly in love."

While this revelation is new, the "electric attraction" has caused sparks to fly from the beginning, even before Chris and wife Gwen split up this spring.

Emily Maynard, Chris Harrison

"Chris openly told staffers that Emily was the most beautiful woman he'd ever laid eyes on," said an insider, who apparently wasn't alone in noticing.

Even former contestants were aware of the potential there.

"From the beginning, I always said there was no way Emily was really going to end up with one of the guys," says former Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi.

"She really wanted to be with Chris, and it was obvious he wanted to be with her too, I vacationed with Chris and his family in St. Lucia and know him well."

"He was never with his wife. He's a flirt. I guarantee Emily and Chris end up together. If she gets engaged to another man, the show will probably spin it as a love triangle."

Wait ... Vienna Girardi vacationed with Chris' family?

There may not be enough salt on the planet to take this report with. As for who she really picks, The Bachelorette spoilers say little about who does get her final rose next month ... though there are hints as to the final three.

With ex-boyfriend Kasey Kahl arrested and accused of bashing a woman's face, Vienna Girardi posed for not-at-all-staged bikini pics with her ex in Miami this week.

No, not Jake Pavelka. Jake precursor Lee Smith.

Vienna stormed off Relationship Rehab - where she was trying to work it out with Kasey - last month when producers blindsided her with a surprise visit from Lee.

But now, things are different apparently.

Vienna shows off her new/old BF and her only best assets.

Sources close to the couple say Vienna Girardi and Lee Smith have since been talking and working on their relationship (re: boning non-stop) since then.

Bachelor fans may recall that Lee was also the guy allegedly sending Vienna flirty emails - and tapping that ass - while she was still engaged to Jake.

She has an interesting history with men, that's for sure.

Bachelor train wreck Vienna Girardi ripped off her microphone and walked off the set of Relationship Rehab last week after producers shocked her by having her ex show up.

No, not Jake Pavelka, though that would've done the trick too.

Vienna and boyfriend Kasey Kahl, her Bachelor Pad partner in crime and the second half of the world's douchiest couple were hammering out their issues on the show.

Of course they were. But, things got awkward on Relationship Rehab (a new show debuting soon on VH1) when she was blindsided by the arrival of ... Lee Smith.

Vienna Girardi, Boyfriend

For those who don't keep tabs on Vienna Girardi - we're actually jealous of you - Lee dated V before she went on The Bachelor and got engaged to Pavelka.

Lee is also the guy she was allegedly sending flirty emails to - and exchanging bodily fluids with, according to him - while she was still engaged to Pavelka.

In any case, it got ugly last week. Vienna had an emotional breakdown and walked off the show, screaming at producers that she "hates" them. Ouch!!

She hasn't been back since and the show has finished shooting.

It's unclear if she violated her contract by ditching the show early, or if anyone cares, but you have to love that Vienna was surprised by such a move.

She's not smart.

Gotta love The Bachelorette rumor mill.

With Emily Maynard and Jeremy Shockey apparently no longer together, and Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl splitting up, Emily and Kasey must be an item, right?

Of course, if you believe In Touch Weekly ... which proclaims Emily is now dating Vienna's ex. They could mean a different ex, too, of course. Girlfriend gets around.

Whoever it is she's dating ... she's not. No way she would want Kasey or anyone tied to Vienna guarding and protecting anything. Emily also denied it on Twitter.

  • Emily Maynard Picture
  • Kasey
  • The Bachelor, Vienna Girardi

Just listen to the North Carolina cutie herself:

Emily Maynard: “Seriously? You'd think that with all the guys the mags say I'm dating I'd have some help with my Xmas lights! #stillnottrue #stillsingle.”

Now that's hard to believe. Emily can't get help with her Christmas lights? Do you realize how hot this woman is? What is wrong with the men of Charlotte?

We've been hearing rumblings that, following her breakup with Brad Womack, her quest for love may continue as the star of The Bachelorette next year.

Repeat, that's just a rumor. Unlike In Touch, we'll call celebrity gossip what it is and not label it as fact. But we hear they are trying to woo Emily again.

The sticking point? Her daughter Ricki. As a single mom, we don't see it happening, but will they come up with a better catch among Ben Flajnik castoffs?

Should Emily be the next Bachelorette?

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, rejects from The Bachelor and Bachelorette who teamed up on Bachelor Pad and in life, have ended their relationship.

"Yes vienna and I have split. It's been 5 weeks now. I can't fake it anymore. I will always love, be there for her, and wish her the best," Kahl Tweeted.

"@KaseyRKahl will always be my best friend, but we have split. No idea what the future holds for us but we will always remain friends," Girardi said.

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl Pic

Girardi briefly became engaged to Jake Pavelka on The Bachelor but things quickly went south and culminated in an ugly, televised break-up interview.

Kahl wooed Ali Fedotowsky on The Bachelorette with song, and had his lame ass catch phrase, "guard and protect your heart," tattooed on his wrist.

Ali was unimpressed, but he won over Vienna Girardi, who he teamed with on Bachelor Pad. There, Kasey set out to "mentally beat the $h!t out of Jake."

That didn't really work out either. While they quickly became the power couple to beat, Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano prevailed in the show's finale.

We wish Kasey and Vienna the best in their future endeavors. Endeavors which, hopefully, never require us to post about the douche-tastic pair again.

On the season finale of Bachelor Pad, old wounds were reopened, a romantic bombshell was dropped, and a STAGGERING prize of $250,000 was awarded.

There were tears shed. There were some extremely awkward moments.

By the end, two couples from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were left standing. Read about it all below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad finale recap:

Jake, Vienna and Kasey

"I'm trying to act strong, 'cause I don't want Michelle to worry, but I am literally pissing down my leg." - Graham on the set of Cirque du Soleil. Literally. Plus 5.

Kasey and Vienna, of course, guaranteed they'd win this task and earn a spot in the finals. And, of course, they failed to do so. And, of course, she wept. Minus 6.

Mike and Holly took home the #1 spot thanks in no small part to his performing arts / dance background, but hey, guy needed a bone thrown his way, so Plus 8.

The judges - Jason Mesnick, Ali Fedotowsky and Trista Sutter - eliminated Ella and Kirk. Boo, but seeing those three was kind of fun, so that's kind of a Wash.

Four couples remain on Bachelor Pad heading into tonight's finale.

Who will take home the $250,000 prize? That will hinge on who makes the final two and wins the votes of their peers (they stole this from Big Brother).

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl are by far the douchiest couple in the house, and possibly in all of civilization. But they've been in command throughout.

The budding romance between Michelle Money and Graham Bunn, not to mention their strategy and success in competitions, could propel those two.

Bachelor Pad 2 Cast

Previously engaged Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano seem like the long shots, given the instability of their relationship (i.e. she just got engaged to Blake Julian).

Ella Nolan and Kirk DeWindt are the only tandem without romantic undertones, but she's a single mom and he's a mold poisoning survivor, and both are kinda cute.

So ... yeah. That about sums up the field right here.

In a STUNNING twist that makes absolutely no difference except to Erica and Blake, Bachelor Pad made its pairings officially "couple" up on Monday night.

As a result, Blake found himself further ostracized from the house.

By the end, the two castoffs from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were fighting not to be castoffs again, while a new love connection began to blossom.

Read about it below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad recap:

Graham Bunn and Michelle Money

Blake, awkwardly, must pair with Erica because he has no choice. She feels he should express a little bit more excitement. "I'm a lot smarter than Holly is," Erica says. "And in my opinion I am a lot prettier." No and no. Minus 8.

Venerable BP host-pimp Chris Harrison told the partners to "get to know" each other before the competition. Advantage ... who the heck knows! Plus 3.

Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl, as always, are overconfident. And moronic. Minus 12.
