'Married To Jonas': Will Kevin Jonas And Danielle Jonas' Reality Show Doom Their Marriage?

First Posted: 05/ 1/2012 9:13 pm   Updated: 05/ 2/2012 4:15 am

Should we be worried for Kevin Jonas' marriage?

On Monday, Entertainment Weekly reported that the oldest Jonas brother and his wife, Danielle, will star in the upcoming E! reality series, "Married to Jonas." The show, which premieres Aug. 19, will follow the couple -- who've been married since 2009 -- as they balance their "suburban domestic life" with Kevin's career and considerable fame.

Still, as YourTango writer Carolyn Gregoire wondered, is it really possible to have a normal marriage when cameras crews follow your every move? As we've seen before, opening your home -- and marriage -- to TV audiences is all too often followed by divorce once the cameras stop rolling.

Here, 8 celebrity couples whose marriages couldn't withstand reality TV. Click through the slideshow and weigh in: Is the reality TV divorce curse real?

  • Jon and Kate Gosselin

    Jon and Kate Gosselin charmed audiences on TLC's "Jon and Kate Plus 8," which chronicled their lives as parents of sextuplets and twins. Familial bliss ended in June 2009, when <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/22/jon-kate-gosselin-oficial_n_219324.html" target="_hplink">Kate filed for divorce</a> amid speculation that <a href="http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/06/10/jon-gosselin-cheated/" target="_hplink">Jon had cheated</a> on her. A bitter custody battle ensued, culminating in <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/07/jon-gosselin-sues-kate-fo_n_529239.html" target="_hplink">Jon's accusation</a> that Kate neglected their children to film "Dancing With The Stars" (which she denied). The former spouses seem to have buried the hatchet, as Kate told <em>People </em>magazine in June 2011 that her relationship with Jon has "<a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20500162,00.html" target="_hplink">naturally gotten more peaceful</a>."

Barker <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1538138/travis-barker-files-divorce.jhtml" target="_hplink">filed for divorce</a> in August 2006, accusing Moakler of partying to hard, neglecting their kids, and cheating on him--which <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1532646,00.html " target="_hplink">she denied</a>.

  • Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

    Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' eight-month courtship, which was chronicled on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," lasted longer than their 72-day marriage.

The couple's marital troubles played out all season on "<a href="http://www.aoltv.com/show/kourtney-kim-take-new-york/8450592" target="_hplink">Kourtney and Kim Take New York</a>," which was filmed prior to the split.
