The couple announced their split to Hollyscoop exclusively on the five-year anniversary of their wedding.
In a statement released exclusively to Hollyscoop by the couple’s long-time friend and manager Phil Viardo – Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry are calling it quits.
“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,” Viardo confirmed to Hollyscoop.
“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.
“Both Knight and Curry decided to release this joint announcement today in order to preempt any potential rumors and gossip and ask that their fans and the media respect their privacy during this delicate period.”
Adrianne and Chris famously met as housemates on the hit VH1 television series, “The Surreal Life”. Their on-screen romance lead to the creation of their own spin-off series, “My Fair Brady”, which documented their relationship from courting to the engagement and finally to the televised wedding and their first year of marriage.
Her goofy, fun-loving, outgoing personality seemed to be the perfect for more serious Chris. They seemed like an odd couple at first, but quickly won over fans.
In 2007 Adrianne confessed that her and Chris were in couples counseling and stressed that she wants to “feel that we can have kids and everything is going to be fine.”
“I remind him in a relationship it’s all about equality,” she said at the time.
It’s always sad to hear a marriage come to an end, but luckily there was no scandal involved here, just two adults who have decided to go their separate ways. We wish them both the best during this difficult time.
