When celebrity relationships go bad, the fallout can be oh so entertaining.
So we learned recently that Lorenzo Lamas, he of Grease, Falcon Crest, and looking-like-Harry-Hamlin fame, only just found out that his now ex-wife Shauna Sand (they were married from 1996 to 2002) was sleeping with his then 18-year-old son, A.J., while Shauna was still married to Lorenzo. And apparently he found out while shooting his new E! reality show. Well now! That's disgusting! Here are a few other ridiculously racy celebrity affairs to ease you into your weekend. And let us know in the comments if we forgot any deliciously scandalous affairs.
Gloria Grahame cheats on Nicholas Ray with his son
Shauna's not as original as she'd like to think: The old nailing-the-father-and-the-son trope goes at least as far back as the director of Rebel Without a Cause and his actress wife. Grahame (who played bad girl Violet Bick in 1946's It's a Wonderful Life) and Ray married in 1948, and had a son, Timothy. In 1951, Nicholas came home to find Gloria in bed with his 14-year-old son, Tony. They divorced the following year, and in 1960, Grahame married Tony. Together they had two sons. So her oldest, Timothy, was both the half-brother and the uncle of her sons Anthony Jr. and James. Eeeeeesh. Discuss getting along with grown up stepkids – but not like that
Elizabeth Taylor steals Eddie Fisher from Debbie Reynolds
There was no one more famous than Elizabeth Taylor in the late '50s. She had been widowed in 1958; the husband she'd loved the most, producer Mike Todd, died when the plane named Lucky Liz, after his wife, crashed. Todd's best friend, singer Eddie Fisher, comforted Taylor in her grief, and as Eddie's daughter Carrie writes in her screamingly funny book Wishful Drinking, "He first dried her eyes with his handkerchief, then he consoled her with flowers, and he ultimately consoled her with his penis." Debbie Reynolds became the Jennifer Aniston of mid-century Hollywood, with outraged fans taking her side versus that trollop Elizabeth. Liz and Eddie were married in 1959, and split in 1964, when she dumped him for Richard Burton. Debbie and Liz, who had been close friends, reconciled years later and even mocked Fisher in the 2001 TV movie These Old Broads, which Carrie Fisher wrote.
