The 50 Lamest Celebrity Couples of All Time

31. Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher

Couple Nickname: None
Dated Between: 1958 - 1964

Like most things in Elizabeth Taylor's life, her five-year marriage to singer Eddie Fisher was ridden with drama. The two knew each other initially because Taylor was good friends with Debbie Reynolds, Fisher's wife at the time, and Fisher was good friends with Taylor's husband at the time, Mike Todd.

When Todd died in a plane crash in 1958, Taylor and Fisher began an affair that broke up his marriage to Reynolds, who had just given birth to their second child, and ultimately led to him marrying Taylor. It was a huge scandal in Hollywood at the time, and it led to a huge dip in Fisher's career that included his NBC television show being canceled.
