The Hookups/Marriages of 2006

This year had its fair share of celebrity marriages and hook-ups ... love was definitely in the air this year -- but sometimes, that love was fleeting. Four of these newly joined couples broke up in the same year. Ain't love grand? Once again, this list is not exhaustive ... but these are the couples that stood out most for me.

Eminem and Kim Mathers:

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott:

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban:

Lindsay Lohan and Harry Morton (dated, did not wed):

Avril Lavigne and Deryck Whibley:

Pamela Anderson and Kid Rock:

Nicole Richie and Brody Jenner (dated, did not wed):

Anna Nicole Smith and Howard K. Stern ("committed" themselves to one another, did not wed):

Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie (reunited as BFF after a bitter year-long feud):

Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise (were legally wed, surprisingly the world did not end):
