1. Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag
As annoying as most people find Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, these two are somehow still together. Perhaps they realized early on what a money making publicity machine they are. After eloping in late 2008, Heidi and Spencer tied the knot again in May 2009. This was followed by a slew of media appearances where they felt the need to constantly profess their love for each other.
2. John and Kate Gosselin
Between starring in their own reality show and gracing the tabloid covers, Jon and Kate Gosselin had a very busy 2009. Jon made headlines when he allegedly cheated on his wife with Deanna Hummel. Kate came to his defense, but it was clearly a waste of time. The two publicly battled things out before they finally filed for divorce in June 2009.
3. Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder Civil
Singer Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil just can't seem to quit each other. In early 2009, the couple broke up after Amy admitted to having an extramarital affair. By July, their two year marriage had ended in divorce. Amy and Blake reunited soon after and by December, they were rumored to be engaged (again) and even talking about having children together.
4. Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson
Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson had quite a tumultuous year. No matter how many times Sam tried to end things, they always ended up back on. After a trip to London in March 2009 to celebrate Sam's brother's bar mitzvah, rumors swirled that Lindsay might convert to Judaism. When they split a month later, Lindsay spoke about her struggle to recover emotionally. Last time we checked, they were still apart.
5. Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer
Even though John Mayer had a long standing reputation for being a ladies man, that didn't stop Jennifer Aniston from trying to lock him down. Jennifer and John spent months making up, breaking up, and taking vacations. Just when we all thought it was over, they made an arm-in-arm appearance together at the February 2009 Vanity Fair Oscar party. They split for good just weeks later.
