(Newser) – Janeane Garofalo had a marriage that lasted longer than most Hollywood unions do—but she had no idea. She and Rob Cohen, a writer for The Ben Stiller Show and now a Big Bang Theory producer, dated for a year and then "got married drunk in Vegas" in the 1990s as a joke, Garofalo revealed at a reunion for Stiller's show Saturday. "We got married at a drive-thru chapel in a cab. [We thought] you have to go down to the courthouse and sign papers and stuff, so who knew?" she said. The marriage was finally dissolved over the weekend, reports the New York Post, because, as Garofalo explains, "now that [Rob] is getting married for real, his lawyer dug up something." (And then there are celebrities planning to have not one but three weddings...)

News flash....This just in. Fox News just announced that Janeane will be burning in Hell for 20 yrs of adultery. No wait, the Vatican has just issued a pardon claiming Drunk Marrying is not eligible for Eternal Damnation. Oh well. Carry on.

I always liked her. A lesser woman would have insisted on his share of wealth accumulated the past 20 years. no surprise. conservatives hate independent women who think and stuff. I am on ( == BlackWhitePlanet.c0m==), met many good guys and beauties, they also want to find true love. Now I have found my l’ove , so I recommend it to you, I hope everyone can find their best l’ove.Goodluck.==(( blackwhitePlanet.c0Mshes so smart and cute and funny , i would totally stalk that ass . but it would be a one way love story inevetavly ending up with her correcting my spelling and punctualtion and breaking my heart. still she may stick with me for the snugglin im the shiznit . now time to get a ticket hells yea shes single!!!!!!
