You know that couple that gets drunk, starts fighting, breaks up, and then spends the rest of the party "working things out" in a tear-filled "serious talk" with a make-up sex encore? That's Kobe and Vanessa Bryant. The fairytale romance began—as they often do—on the set of a Eastsidaz video shoot where Vanessa was a back-up dancer. Their marriage has played like a decade-long version of "Sensual Seduction," with rampant rumors of Bryant's infidelity.
