Don't feel sorry for Christie Brinkley.
Feel sorry for her children, and so many others whose celebrity parents change "significant" others as if they were still teenagers.
I'm not sure when marriage became a game of musical chairs, but it seems that celebrities and wedded bliss, with a few exceptions, do not go hand in hand.
Pamela Anderson is going to get married to Kid Rock. Now there's a couple made for each other. They can compare home videos of their sexcapades.
Anderson has two children with her ex-husband Tommy Lee, star of "Rock Star: Supernova," and Kid Rock has a 13-year-old son from a previous relationship.
I'm not wishing them marital unrest, but I do question the exercise.
And let's be honest, that's what marriage is to celebrities — an exercise. Fame is not conducive to marriage. Kid Rock couldn't even date Sheryl Crow, and we know what happened to Crow's subsequent relationship with Lance Armstrong.
What do you think a Kid Rock/Pamela Anderson marriage is going to be like? Short, that's what.
Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro (also of "Rock Star" fame) are getting divorced. Charlie Sheen's ex Denise Richards began dating Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora right after he called it quits with her good "friend," actress Heather Locklear.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez had a joke of an engagement, and a well-publicized one at that. Paris Hilton got engaged and bought herself a fake rock. Huh?
Brad Pitt traded in his wife Jennifer Aniston for a sportier model.
The point is, celebrities do seem to make a mockery of marriage, whether they do it intentionally or not.
But why should marriage be any different? They make a mockery of money, with their lavish lifestyles, private jets and Beverly Hills mansions, and then go on to preach about world hunger and environmental conservation.
They mock personal demons by throwing themselves into rehab for eating disorders, drug addiction, alcoholism, sex addiction, usually when the ratings for their TV shows are in decline or the box office receipts for their latest movies are in the toilet.
A lot of their children are hopelessly lost, because they have no real family life. I mean, Aaron Spelling dies and his survivors go on a public statement war. What's up with that?
What kind of example are they setting? Whether they like it or not, celebrities should be held up to a higher standard. They are a privileged group. Sadly, like most people of privilege, they just don't get it.
And that's a shame.
Ban gay marriage? How about we ban multiple marriages?
