Nothing like reality TV to break up a few relationships! This year several reality stars called it quits on their longtime relationships, sometimes shocking the viewing public. And some PR stunts just didn't pan out. Unfortunately many of those meltdowns included plenty of scandal!
Below we run down 2013's Reality TV star breakups!

Kris Jenner & Bruce Jenner
They're like the OGs of reality TV relationships, but after months of speculation (and Bruce moving into his own bachelor pad) Kris and Bruce finally admitted they were separating.
Don't worry - Bruce will still be very involved in Keeping Up With The Kardashains as the couple has vowed to remain close friends. In fact rumor has it we'll see them dating other people next season - and Kris has already moved on with former Bachelor Ben Flajnik - who is half her age!

Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom
Another Kardashian relationship bit the dust this year: Khloe and Lamar. The couple who wed on TV four years ago after a month long courtship just couldn't handle the pressures of infertility, depression, leaving mommy, an NBA career, and of course several reality shows.
Even after pulling the plug on their solo show Khloe & Lamar to save their marriage, Lamar still stepped out on his wifie and she caught him with a few different women. In the drama that played out before the media's prying eyes Lamar was also accused of battling a crack addiction and refusing to seek treatment. Khloe officially filed for divorce last week and doesn't want anyone to bother her for details because she's saving that for next season of KUWTK!

Jenelle Evans & Courtland Rogers
Shakespeare has nothing on the twitterlationship drama of Jenelle and Courtland! They courted in court and married after mere weeks. The honeymoom period - ummm... skip that! What followed was sheer insanity.
First Jenelle was pregnant, then not in a miscarriage she TWEETED THROUGH. Then the couple was arrested a couple times for assault, battery, heroin possession - you name it there's a mugshot for it. Meanwhile Jenelle was arguing with Courtland's baby mama on twitter as well.
Then they broke up fifteen thousand more times, she got back together with her ex-fiance Gary Head, then Courtland returned. There were some brief rehab stints. Then they both went to jail; he stayed a while and Jenelle didn't. Now she's moved on with some other high-drama sucker and he's well, who cares! Next. Unfortunately under NC state law their divorce will take a while...

GG Gharachedaghi & Omid Kantari & Sean Sette &…
GG Gharachedaghi has had a lot of breakups this year. First she was engaged to Omid, after dating him like 13 minutes. Then that relationship got Crispied over cheating. Then she hooked up with Sean Sette and that fell apart amid a gaggle of cheating accusations, restraining orders, and assault allegations. When will this girl learn that anger management is your friend. At least she has Reza to keep her company!

Dina Manzo & Tommy Manzo
Despite their million dollar fiasco of a wedding (Tommy passed out fliers at the gas station!), they've been living separate lives for years. Dina with her hairless cats and Tommy likely with hairless other things... Anyway, Dina did what all good little reality vixens do and announced the breakup on twitter then she staged a single gal return to Real Housewives of New Jersey. Tommy never did like the show anyway!

Porsha Stewart & Kordell Stewart
Despite Porsha's impassioned love speech on last season's Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, Kordell pulled a tricky maneuver and secretly filed for divorce anyway. And Porsha found out on twitter, naturally. Apparently she wanted to continue with reality TV - he after being branded as a kontroll freak, not so much!
The couple then argued over spousal support and Porsha's ability to work. Kordell claims she's on a hit TV show, she argues that she needs those $3,500 shoes. Speaking of hit TV show, she's making "down-low" accusations about him every week and despite their divorce being finalized he's threatening to sue for slander. Le sig... there goes that alimony check!

Julianne Hough & Ryan Seacrest
The former Dancing With The Stars pro and her much older American Idol beau called it quits with little fanfare and no tweeting. Shocking, I know! But that's what happens when you have an A-list reputation to protect, right Ryan?

LuAnn de Lesseps & Jacques Azoulay
That's right, during a very bawdy cast trip to St. Tropez LuAnn got busy with her very own Captain Sparrow and was caught in epic lie upon epic lie. The official breakup story is that Jacques wanted kids, but she's much older and secretly had her tubes tied. Regardless the couple has kept it classy all the way through and have now moved on to other people.

Vicki Gunvalson & Brooks Ayers
We're not sure if they're actually broken up or just pretending to be, but these poor star-crossed lovers can't catch a break! Vicki and her on-again/off-again relationship with Brokes Hallmark has been trouble from the start.
The start being that her daughter Briana refuses to accept him after it emerged that Vicki was cheating on ex-hubby Donn with Brooks! Oh - and he's a using, lying manipulative, jobless phony! Then, of course, there were all the rumors of cheating and schtupping much younger adult-entertainment performers that know Lauri Peterson's daughter.
Finally there was the whole Brooks hired a hitman to off Vicki's former business partner debacle. Did I mention she's being sued? Hopefully all of this affirms for Vicki that this man is scum who is using her.

Courtney Robertson & Arie Luyendyke Jr.
Was this a PR stunt turned relationship or just a PR stunt? Trying to extend their 15 minutes the ex-Bachelor and Bachelorette stars Courtney and Arie (who both happen to live in Scottsdale, AZ) hooked up and started dating. Oh how sweet.
Unfortunately it only lasted as long as the public interest did - so about 6 seconds. Now Arie has faded back into obscurity and Courtney is pedaling a book exposing the truth behind the Bachelor franchise. Good luck with that one. #NotWinning

Courtney Stodden & Doug Hutchison
It's time to say farewell to Doutney, the ill-fated May-December romance of the creepiest couple in show business!
The now "of age" Courtney realized that an AARP discount is so not worth her youth and spooning Medimucil into a man-child's mouth is like so icky. She'd rather flaunt her new set of boobs and even bigger set of lips and be a little girl again. These lucite platform stripper heels are made for walking - and that's just what they did. Doug is said to be heartbroken and devastated. Courtney meanwhile is filming a new reality show in London. Oh heavens.
