This Hollywood power couple seemed like a match made in (Victoria's Secret) heaven, but the duo announced their split on Oct. 24, 2013, revealing they separated several months before.

Jon and Kate Gosselin

Jon and Kate Gosselin

The 'Jon and Kate Plus Eight' reality superstars, whose whole life was based on them being together and raising all of those kids on TV, shocked everyone, and ensured months of tabloid covers when they split amid allegations of cheating. 

The reality stars then announced on a June 2009 episode that they were separating, and have since divorced. 

The popular show, which featured Jon and Kate raising their eight children, saw its ratings skyrocket during the scandal, but was then was canceled as Jon alleged that the children were not faring well having their every waking minute videotaped. 

It was like if the Cunningham family broke up on 'Happy Days' and you had to see Richie and Joanie bawling their eyes out every week.

The Gosselins definitely could have benefited from advice from The Fonz.
