(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...)
