Does putting it all on the line for television doom couples for divorce? Keep reading to see other reality couples who have gone their separate ways after or during filming.

Adrienne and Paul are not the only Real Housewives cast members to announce a sudden split. Cast mates, Camille and Kelsey Grammer recently went through an extremely public divorce during filming.

The Real Housewives of Orange County frenemies Tamara Barney and Vicki Gunvalson also went through divorces during filming.

Other divorced Housewives couples include Nene and Gregg Leakes from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and The Count and Countess LuAnn De Lesseps from The Real Housewives of New York.

The Housewives stars are not the only reality couples to come across trouble in paradise.

Singers Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey landed themselves a MTV hit show, Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica after marrying in 2002. The couple was not only easy on the eyes, but a fan favorite. Sadly, after three seasons and three years of marriage the couple went their separate ways.

When Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphires planned an extravagant, over-the-top wedding many viewers quickly became skeptical. However the two-episode wedding extravaganza was quickly forgotten when the couple’s relationship unfolded on E! during the season of Kim and Kourtney Take New York. After 72-days of marriage, the couple filed for divorce.

    Simpson was way too much of an airhead for Nick to deal with. I'm not just talking about the "is this Chicken of the Sea tuna? or chicken I'm eating?" deal. She's done other really dumb ass stuff, and for an adult? one has to wonder...what's doing on in her brain that's malfunctioning. The death of an only brain ell is a terrible thing to watch. Nick is SO much better without this no talent.

    adrienne alway's belittled Paul. He tried to be compassionate to her, but she didn't respond to him.

    I do agree with you to a point. I have a feeling they were over before the show started and the extra pressure of having cameras and film crews in your home for 3 months can be taxing on any marriage. But if your marriage is on the rocks and you need to act happily married and everything bugs you that his does like BREATHING......Im afraid there's not a camera in the world that could hide it. Plus I think Paul got under her skin on purpose to piss her off.

    I doubt this had anything to do with reality TV. Adrienne treats Paul like he is the most annoying and stupid person on earth, how long do you think that was going to last?
