When a couple of his friends on XFM radio were teasing him about his outrageous elephant-riding wedding and shamefully short marriage, the acerbic comic was quick to defend the relationship. Kind of. He said:
"Let me tell you a thing about marriage. Marriage is a bond that can last up to 14 months…
This is a sacred, 14-month arrangement. Begins on an elephant. Ends in a newspaper."
Aw, offsides, Brand!
Though to be fair, he was more poking fun at his own inability to stay committed- something his buddies backed up, revealing they had a pool going on how long he could stay hitched!
Maybe he's just laughing at himself to keep from feeling terrible about his loss- we know that's how we'd feel!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) of Russell post-Perry and see if he's doing just fine- or putting on a show!
Also, the proceeds of the radio program did go to the Teen Cancer trust, so..
Fine, darn it! We guess we can't be mad at your charming British bum this time!
