Actresses Anne Heche and Ellen DeGeneres began dating in 1997, soon after DeGeneres publicly came out. They dated until 2000, when they had a reportedly tough breakup. Just after moving out of their shared home, Heche was picked up by police who found her wandering California's Central valley. Heche said she was looking for a spaceship to pick her up, and later released a memoir about living with her alter ego "Celestia." In 2001, Heche got married—to a cameraman.

George Burns met Gracie Allen in 1922, and they married in 1926. Their highly successful vaudeville act featured George as the straight man to Gracie's zany antics. The couple created its best-known sketch for radio, a situation comedy starring themselves as a working show-business couple. They carried the format to television in 1948, including next-door neighbors Harry and Blanche Morton, Gracie's infamous illogical logic, and the signature "Say goodnight, Gracie" at the show's close. The duo also made films, including an Oscar-nominated turn in A Damsel in Distress with Fred Astaire.
