Defying the marriage odds: 5 shocking celebrity couples making it last

Who else was surprised to hear about Heidi and Seal's divorce? I didn't see that one coming at all. Seriously! Based on their red carpet appearances and candid pictures, I thought they were the handful of celebrity couples, in it to win it. Guess we were all wrong about that. Well not everyone in Hollywood is breaking up. In fact some couples that I thought would break up are defying the odds. Check out my top 5 couples that are shockingly still together.

1. Khloe and Lamar Odom

When these two tied the knot in 2009, I gave them days not even weeks or months to split up. Fast forward to 2012 and the couple is still going strong. I am eating my words. With a successful TV show, soaring career and plenty of endorsement deals, Khloe and Lamar seem to be silencing all the critics. I still cant believe this one...

2. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

 When they started dating in the public eye, I really didn't think they stood any sort of chance. Angelina was known for being a heart breaker, y'all remember that red carpet interview she gave a few years ago with then love Billy Bob revealing that the couple had just finished doing the "deed" in their limo. Scandalous! Well 15,000 adopted children later the couple is still going strong. To be honest with you, I've warmed up to the idea of the two of them together. They are not married yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if wedding bells rang soon for the actors. Only time will tell if they make it for the long haul.

3. Nick and Mariah Carey
Welp, Morrocco and Monroe's parents are not playing the break up game, they are the epitome of defying the odds. When this May December couple first got together a few years back in , I called immediate BS on this union. Nick had just proposed in a grandiose affair to supermodel Selita Ebanks and Mariah was just...well being Mariah. So when they got married in 2008, I just knew it would last all of 72 days. Well surprise, surprise..the Cannons are still happily married. 

4. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian

Now these 2 are the very definition of cheatin' asses, these two take the cake. Dare I say over Brad and Angelina? Singer LeAnn Rimes met her husband actor Eddie Cibrian on the set of a LifeTime movie, while they were both married to other people. Deciding to fore go all common sense and decency the pair took their onscreen chemistry into real life despite being both married.  Im still on the fence about these two. Yes I am totally judging them but I dont see Eddie staying with LeAnn for the long haul. Yo no se!

5. Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz
You know a lot of these couples on this list share this  pesky cheating trait. Case in point Swizz and Alicia. Y'all already the story, the darling of R&B Miss Keys met Mr. Beatz while he was married (but separated) from his ex-wife Mashonda. Details are fuzzy on when the couple actually started dating but let Mashonda tell it, Swizz was dipping on both sides when he started his courtship with Alicia. The couple is now married and they have a toddler not to mention Swizz's 2 other kids from.... 2 other women. Alicia is better than me, I couldn't do it. 

So that's my list of celebrities couples that are still solid as a rock despite the odds...thoughts?
