Sunshine first met Chris Kattan at a birthday party in 2005, and just dating a little over a year, the two got engaged on Christmas Eve 2006.

But unfortunately, their marriage didn’t last long. The pair announced their split just two months later they exchanged the vows
Eventually, the duo then went on to divorce in February 2009 citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split.
According to TMZ magazine, Sunshine walked away with a “low six-figure sum,” in the divorce, and used that money to “rebuild her life.”
Before marrying Sunshine, Chris has had his fair share of high-profile romances. Some of them include:
Jennifer Gimenez (1999): Chris brought the model/actress as his date to the GQ Men of the Year Awards 1999, but their relationship reportedly did not last long either.
Jennifer Coolidge (2001): Though the two met back in the 90s, they only became an item before 2001.
Maya Rudolph (2001): Chris was reportedly romantically linked to the Saturday Night Live star in late 2001.
