Danielle Staub tops the list with 21 engagements.

Her latest was with Oliver Maier after he popped the question during a vacation to the Cheval Blanc Maison in St. Barth in 2019. However, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star might have another ring from a new man soon as the pair called off their engagement in September 2019.

Staub spoke about her relationships in a 2020 episode of RHONJ.

"Why? No one's ever asked me. It came from wanting to punish people who were abusing me," said Staub. "But, the way I got them to ask me to marry them quickly is I said I was a virgin and I would not have s-- until I was married. That will put a ring on your finger real quick. Can't do that once you have kids. If Tom [Staub] was number 19, and there were only two more after that, and I married one of them, have I really been engaged that many times? No."

Danielle only managed to make the virginity claims before giving birth to her first child.

Meanwhile, Danielle has only been married thrice to Kevin Maher, Marty Caffrey and Thomas.

Larry King had eight engagements and marriages with seven women before his death on January 23, 2021.

"I think in my life I have loved three people — married all three," King told CBS News when asked about his weddings. "The other marriages I wasn't in love. It was the thing to do. I used to say, what if your wife called urgent on one line, on the other CNN called urgent … which one do you pick up? … I used to say CNN."

Larry married his high school sweetheart, Freda Miller, in 1952. After their marriage was annulled by their parents the following year, he went on to pop questions to several women, including Annette Kaye, Alene Akins, Mary Francis "Mickey" Sutphin, Sharon Lepore and Julie Alexander.

Shawn Southwick was his last wife, but he filed for divorce from her in 2019.

"We had a big age difference, and that eventually takes its toll," Larry said. "It became an issue. Also, [Shawn] is a very religious Mormon, and I'm an agnostic atheist, so that eventually causes little problems. We overcame a lot, but eventually, it became a ships-passing-in-the-night situation."
