S5E11: Over the Rainbow | Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney & Judy Garland’s Tragic Loves

It’s all Judy Garland, all the time! This week, Stacie kicks us off with the mysterious and incredibly brief marriage between actress Renee Zellweger (who just won Best Actress for Judy) and country star Kenny Chesney. They tied the knot after knowing each other just five months, and when Renee filed to annul the marriage for “fraud” four months later, the media turned an ugly eye to Kenny.

Then, Alicia has the heartbreaking story of Trashy Divorces All-Star Judy Garland, whose five marriages and four divorces were probably a predictable outcome of the horrifying ways she was mistreated as a child.
