Adrianne Curry and Peter Brady split up

Camelot is no more: Twitter exhibitionist Adrianne Curry and her husband Christopher Knight (aka Peter from The Brady Bunch) are splitting up. The couple announced the news Sunday on the five-year anniversary of their wedding. Wait a minute, break ups aren’t supposed to be romantic. The couple’s rep told Hollyscoop:

“Actor Christopher Knight and his wife, model and television star Adrianne Curry have announced today on their five-year wedding anniversary that they are separating. After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated. The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union. Not unlike all marriages, work must be put in.

“Obvious to both Knight and Curry was that their marriage would require more effort then a garden-variety relationship. They are taking time to see if they want to continue to put in that extraordinary effort. The couple has mutually determined that they are at a place where moving forward will require a step back. They still love one another but need some distance to consider their future.”

What’s most surprising about this story isn’t the fact that these two are breaking up, it’s that they’ve lasted this long. Five years in Hollywood is like 20 lifetimes anywhere else. The reality is that when you have money, fame, and tons of people wanting to sleep with you because of that fame, it’s hard to stay faithful in a relationship — and it was probably tough for Christopher Knight too.
