Top 10 Real-Life Relationships Pt. 5

26 04 2009

Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4

The countdown concludes today with one seemingly very happy couple and the saddest love story to come out of the teen drama world.

2. Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) and Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl)


Though they knew each other already, Lively and Bagdley didn’t began dating until season one of Gossip Girl. When I interviewed Bagdley last year he wouldn’t confirm or deny the relationship,but the two have slowly opened up about it to the media.  From a Details magazine article: “Penn, who was home-schooled with Blake a decade ago, when both were child actors, calls the relationship ‘wonderful and also something to grapple with’ in terms of mixing work and pleasure. But he won’t say more. ‘You have to draw the line somewhere. I’m fine talking about my family and personal history, because it humanizes you. But I have to save some shit for me.'”

1. Chad Michael Murray (Lucas, One Tree Hill) and Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill)


Murray and Bush hold the honor of being the only teen drama couple to be married–and divorced.  The two met on One Tree Hill in 2003 and married in 2005.  But the wedded bliss was short-lived: Bush asked for an annulment just 5 months later.  Though neither have ever explicitly said the cause of the separation, rumors persist that Murray cheated on her.  But since the end of their relationship, the two have shared many love scenes on the show, which I give them both a lot of credit for.  I cannot imagine having to pretend to be in love and kiss the person that broke your heart.  Murray said in an interview last year that “It’s one of those things where you grow up a lot faster. You’re put in a situation where you’re gonna deal with things right in your face. But I think [Sophia and I] are both professional and mature enough to get through it. And now it’s just easy. We’re just friends. And she’s got James, and James and I are friends. It’s just a little tight group in Wilmington.”  Murray got engaged again not long after ending things with Bush, this time to Kenzie Dalton, a sometimes-extra on the show.
