When we first saw the photo of Journey guitarist Neal Schon passionately kissing "Real Housewives of D.C." star Michaele Salahi after a concert in San Antonio, we threw up a little bit in our mouths. But when the bile subsided, we started thinking about other famous and infamous smooches that left us far from swooning.
Check out a few of Hollywood's worst tongue-twisting kisses:
Michaele Salahi And Neal Schon
Al Gore And Tipper Gore
Liza Minnelli And David Gest
In 2002, Liza Minnelli wed David Gest in front of 850 guests including Martha Stewart, Natalie Cole and Mickey Rooney. Elizabeth Taylor was co-matron of honor and Michael Jackson co-best man. But what had everybody talking was the newly married couple's first kiss which looked more like Gest was attempting to eat something lodged at the back of Minnelli's throat. "He sucked her lips right off her face," exclaimed Joy Behar. Another guest, Donald Trump said, "I have been to many weddings and I have never seen a kiss like that before."
Angelina Jolie And James Haven
In 2000, Angelina Jolie won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of a mental patient in, "Girl, Interrupted." Sporting dead straight, jet black hair that made her resemble Lily Munster, Jolie joyfully accepted the statuette and announced that she was "in love" with her date, brother James Haven. Later the two were photographed kissing each other fully on the mouth.
Jennifer Lopez And Ben Affleck
Before there was Brangelina there was Bennifer. For those too young to remember, Ben Affleck was engaged to Jennifer Lopez. The two loved to take inconspicuous spins in a white Rolls and in 2002 Ben co-starred in J.Lo's "Jenny From the Block" video. In the video, the two are seen lounging on a boat and Affleck lovingly kisses Lopez's famous posterior. The two broke up in 2004.
Lin Shaye And Puffy
In 1998's smash hit "There's Something About Mary," Cameron Diaz lives in an apartment complex alongside leather-skinned Magda (Lin Shaye) who is excessively devoted to her border terrier, Puffy. Their French kissing brought hoots of laughter from packed audiences.
Britney Spears, Madonna And Christina Aguilera
At the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears both dressed in white and warbled "Like a Virgin" until Madonna, clad in a modified black tux, burst out of a wedding cake and joined them. The trio sang Madge's newest single, "Hollywood," and then Madonna tongue kissed Brit-Brit. Funnily enough she then turned to kiss Christina but somehow no one remembers that smooch.
