We all love our celebrities, especially when they pair up. But sometimes their tastes when it comes to matters of the heart can leave us scratching our heads.

celeb odd couples - Danson Goldberg

Warner Bros. Pictures

Ted Danson and Whoopi Goldberg
While this pairing of actors wasn't too strange on the surface, it was the details around the romance that made the pairing odd. "Cheers" star Ted Danson became so smitten with co-star Whoopi Goldberg during filming of the 1992 movie "Made in America," that he divorced his then wife-of-16-years, Cassandra Coates, the next year. It was one of Hollywood's costliest divorces, reportedly costing Danson $30 million. Danson courted more controversy when he appeared in blackface at a Friar's Club comedy roast of Goldberg in the fall of 1993 and delivered a racially offensive monologue.
