This week, it was revealed that failed-actress-turned-professional-homophobe Stacey Dash filed for divorce from her fourth (yes, fourth) husband after just two years of marriage.
TMZ obtained court documents with details about the split. According to the docs, the couple, who were married just 10 days after meeting, separated last October and own no joint property together. Dash earns a monthly income of $2,500, which we’re guessing must come from her Clueless residuals since she was fired from Fox News in 2017 and has barely worked since.
Of course, 53-year-old Dash, who once suggested trans people pee “in the bushes” rather than use public restrooms and blamed Barack Obama for the Pulse massacre, is hardly the first antigay troll to opposes equal rights for LGBTQ people while taking 110% advantage of the rights granted to her.
Scroll down for five more self-righteous homophobes whose marriages also ended in divorce…
Elizabeth Johnston (a.k.a. Activist Mommy)
Earlier this year, the god-fearing, homeschooling mother of 10 who built a social media platform by vomiting anti-LGBTQ vitriol announced she was divorcing her husband of 20-some years, Patrick.
In a since-deleted Facebook post, Johnston, who doesn’t believe same-sex marriages are “real,” revealed that Pat was a low down dirty dog who had been “repeatedly unfaithful” and “psychologically and emotionally abusive” towards her.
“After repeatedly taking him back, covering for him, preserving his reputation, and forgiving him of adultery, pornography and sexual immorality, which began 16 years ago, I have been forced to come to the harsh realization that I’ve done all I can and am entrusting Him to my Savior!” she lamented before asking for “privacy” during her “difficult time.”

In 2013, the cigar-loving, cancer-denying shock jock linked same-sex marriage to pedophilia when he said, “There is a movement on to normalize pedophilia, and I guarantee you your reaction to that is probably much the same as your reaction when you first heard about gay marriage. What has happened to gay marriage? It’s become normal!”
Also “normal,” at least in Limbaugh’s toxic little world, is divorce. At the time he made those remarks he was on his fourth wife, actress Kathryn Rogers, who is perhaps best known for her role in 1999’s Vampires of Sorority Row. Limbaugh’s first three wives included a secretary from his radio station who he married in 1977, a college student who he married in 1983, and an aerobics instructor who he married in 1994.

Last year, the Alaskan beauty queen/2008 GOP vice presidential candidate announced she and her husband, Todd, were callin’ it quits after three decades of holy matrimony.
Todd officially filed for divorce in late August, citing an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”
Speaking to reporters in November, Sarah called being emailed divorce papers a week after her 31st wedding anniversary “devastating” and compared it to “being shot” then said God doesn’t want families to break up… just like he doesn’t want gay people to have weddings.

The thrice-married reality star president’s stance on same-sex marriage has shifted over the years, going from totally 100% opposed to completely indifferent.
In 2000, he said he believed marriage was “between a man and a woman.” 15 years later, after SCOTUS made marriage equality the law of the land, he reiterated this stance when he said he supported “traditional marriage.”
Then in 2016, while on the campaign trail, he said he would “strongly consider” appointing a Supreme Court justice who would overturn the decision on marriage equality.
After winning the election, however, he changed his tune, saying he was “fine” with same-sex marriage and labeled the whole debate, much like his previous two wives and countless mistresses, “irrelevant.”

The former Kentucky county clerk became the poster child for antigay activists in 2015 when she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, citing religious objections. Then it was discovered she herself had been married… four times! And twice to the same man!
Davis’ first three marriages ended in divorce in 1994, 2006, and 2008. She remarried her first husband, who she originally divorced in 1994, in 2009, and the couple remains together to this day (for now).
Along the way, David had some kids. She and Husband #1/#4 had two daughters before getting divorced. Then she had two more kids with Husband #3, but those kids were conceived while she was still married to Husband #1/#4.
Davis later said she experienced a religious awakening in 2011 after her dying mother-in-law begged her to start going to church. And that’s when she decided gay people absolutely should not be allowed to get married.

All six make me want to vomit.
My lifetime partner of 57 years, married 15 years, have no regrets and we consider our marriage a civil marriage, not a religious bigoted one.
For the vast majority of your marriage, these bigots worked hard to deny you the rights and privileges of marriage – including the tax benefits. In your lifetime, you’ve been overcharged (on average) at least $150,000!
If we are going to give reparations, let’s start with the living who have been harmed directly and can document their actual losses.
Elizabeth Johnston has 10 kids. At least one will realize he or she is gay. May the universe give that child strength to be proud.
I wouldn’t want to be in a room with any of them let alone in a marriage
Human garbage. All of them.
i agree with the comments above. but can someone explain the irony in someone whose opposed to gay marriage getting divorced?
i would see the irony if they were gay, but these people are all str8. (as far as we know).
The “sanctity of marriage” is the basis on which they oppose gay marriage. Yet they ignored this sanctity when they filled for divorce. Or something like that…
For a better example of irony, read my long post on Anita Bryant, who Graeme shocking omitted from this list. Her downfall is a true example of poetic justice and irony. Short version: Her fan base relied heavily on fundamentalist Christians. After her divorce, they abandoned her on biblical grounds, causing her to go bankrupt. The irony is that, prior to her downfall, she was preaching the very message they used to abandon her.
Why even put these ugly human beings in an article? Who cares? When you have that much hate in your heart, you can’t love. That’s all, focus on something else, please. The less attention they get the better!
They all look like human trash, you can just see the evil in them looking from the outside..
How can you leave out the grandma of all modern homophobes, the legendary Anita Bryant? Yes, she’s still alive. I’m straight and wasn’t born during her reign of terror, but even I know of her. Indeed, all gays should because the iconic homophobes is widely parodied and referenced in gay media.
Bryant was a much worse homophobe than these six combined since her whole existence was based on fighting gay equality. In fact, Wikipedia lists her profession as “anti-gay activist.” Most important to this article is the fact that unlike these other divorcees, her divorce (along with the gay boycott) destroyed her career and forced her into several bankruptcies. That resulted from fundamentalist Christians, her major fan base, shunning her simply because they disapproved of divorce. Her singing gigs soon dried up and poor Anita was on the streets. That actually made her reevaluate her opposition to feminism, and even soften her stance on homosexuality (as long as gays don’t “flaunt it” or want it legalized).
All in all, divorce played a much larger role in Bryant’s life and downfall than in these other examples. And she was a much worse homophobe than these combined. Go to her Wikipedia entry for a fascinating read. You will cheer as you read about her trials and tribulations! Graham needs to hand in his gay card for this egregious omission!
Anita Bryant’s downfall is significant for another reason. The successful gay boycott against her marked the first time gays were able to display such power. It proved to corporate America that gays were a force to be reckoned with. But it wouldn’t have worked without straight mainstream allies so it also proved that gay rights wasn’t just a fringe concept.
PS – I’m just regurgitating stuff I learned. Since I didn’t live that era, I could very well be wrong. So you old timers should feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

I’m old enough to remember when our friend Anita got a pie in the face! That was classic, I’ll never forget it.
Karma is a BITCH !!! Anyone married to these insane lunatics NEEDS major therapy for a looooong time. And alcohol, weed and Xanax. Being married to Ms. Johnson I’d seek out others-she’s psycho.. Actually they ALL are.. And Anita Bryant.. You reap what you sow people. Karma..the Universe’s way of giving you a dose of your well deserved medicine..
