Celebrity Engagements You Probably Forgot About

Ah, engagement season. It's that wonderful time of year when the warm weather inspires people young and old to legally bind themselves to another human being, forever.

But for those who won't be spousin' up this spring, this time of year can feel a little isolating. Maybe that's why some vindictive single person decreed April 14 “National Ex-Spouse Day.” Seriously, what kind of holiday is that?

Thankfully, there's always one group of people we can rely on to remind us that love is fake and will inevitably crumble: celebrities!

Ryan Reynolds and Alanis Morissette

Before Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds was ready to tie the knot with alternative rock singer Alanis Morissette.

Kanye West and Alexis Phifer

Kim's not the only one who almost spent the rest of her life not being Kimye — before Amber Rose, Kanye was engaged to designer Alexis Phifer.

Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray

Super fans of “One Tree Hill” may remember Brooke Davis and Lucas Scott were actually married IRL… until they weren't anymore.

Drew Barrymore and Tom Green

Remember when Drew Barrymore got engaged to her “Charlie's Angel” costar, comedian Tom Green? Me either.

Madonna and Sean Penn

The older crowd may remember Madonna and Sean Penn's highly publicized relationship… and breakup.

Carson Daly and Tara Reid

It was the “Total Request Live” romance that no one asked for! And it was over pretty quickly.

Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland

Shout out to Julia Roberts for calling her marriage to Kiefer Sutherland off just three days before the wedding.


Kim Kardashian and Damon Thomas

I know you remember Kris Humphries, but don't forget about Kim K's first love — music producer Damon Thomas.
