Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry split

Actor Christopher Knight and reality TV star Adrianne Curry are taking some time apart.

The couple, who fell in love on the 2005 reality series "The Surreal Life" and went on to star in "My Fair Brady," announced their separation on their fifth wedding anniversary.

“After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated," their rep told Hollyscoop on May 29. "The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union. Not unlike all marriages, work must be put in."

In 2007, former "America's Next Top Model" winner Curry admitted that she and the "Brady Bunch" star had entered couples counseling because they were hoping to start a family.

"Obvious to both Knight and Curry was that their marriage would require more effort then a garden-variety relationship," the rep says of the pair, who have no children.

"They are taking time to see if they want to continue to put in that extraordinary effort," the statement continues. "The couple has mutually determined that they are at a place where moving forward will require a step back. They still love one another but need some distance to consider their future."

    Poor guy. He'll live and die a Brady. They'll probably put that name on his tombstone instead of his real one.

    I watched Knight's show because i grew up watching the Brady Bunch. Sorry but I never would have thought Knight would have married her. It seems like he has never learned from past mistakes. I just have no belief that these two would ever be happy together. I believe if Knight would be honest with his self he would know that this marriage is a sham and to put it behind him. And this time try and learn something from his past. I'm very sup prized that it lasted five years... Looks like they had one thing in common, stubbornness.... Good look Michael .

    Seriously....who did not see this coming...she's a beautiful girl who wants a relationship and family, yet she chooses a guy who,,,,come on, in my opinion: "if you are not in a serious relationship, or married by the time you are 30, than there is something wrong with you, hence "Peter Brady"... can do WAY BETTER!!!!

    Frankly, Curry is uncouth and ill-mannered. She needs someone more like herself. Too bad Jesse James is off the market. Not that commitment means much to him.

    They were no good together. He was way too old for her. Christopher should have listened to Mrs. Brady! She knows best.

      I don't think age has anything to do with it. My husband is 15 years older than me and we've been married 18 years now (I'm 41, he's 56). However, from watching their reality shows, she did pursue him to no end. They are just two different personalities that didn't mesh.

    I knew from the get go...they would never make it.....she is a nut and totally spoiled....she ran after him till he finally gave in....

      They were doomed from day one. I'm surprised they made it this long. They were "in lust". not love. I don't htink age is an husband and I are 8 1/2 yrs. apart, and have been married (happily) for 20 yrs. Takes more than visual attraction to make a marriage.

    • Modelmom

      YES SHE DID, Dianne. If I'm not mistaken he stated CLEARLY on My Fair Brady that he DID NOT want to marry her but she pushed and pushed and pushed the issue. I really don't think she was actually attracted to HIM just the fanatasy of being with Peter Brady, which of course he is not. She seems to be a spoiled, childish, self centered, silly little girl that will throw a tantrum (I think she actually did on MFB a couple of times, right?) whenever she can't get her way until she gets what she wants. But when you have no brains and your okay looking then hey that's the way to go.

      People want people who reject them for some reason, the human psyche is a weird twisty place.

    Best thing they can do is take time apart before bringing a child in this world in the middle of their craziness.

    How old is he??? She 's still young and doesn't wanna rush having kids. Tough, but them's the breaks when you marry some one that much younger

      I'm sure it's too late for you to get this Jen but she's the one who's wanted kids since they got together. He on the other hand has kids and told her back when they got together that he didn't want anymore. I don't think that was fair to her, always sorry to see couples who were once so much in love break up though.

    I actually liked them together! I am not shocked, though. I'd love to hear both sides of the story. I liked their reality shows, they were opposites but cute together.
