Barbara Walters & Merv Adelson
1981-1984 and 1986-1992: The pair met on a blind date, but seeing how their careers took place on two different coasts, they eventually had to call it quits — twice! He was a film and television producer whose company Lorimar made hits like Dallas and An Officer and a Gentleman, but Walters' work kept her on the east coast. Walters was his third wife, and he was her third husband. 

“Merv was a kind and gentle man with a great sense of humor,” Walters told The New York Times. “We stayed friends long after our marriage.”
