Whitney Houston was just buried, but Rihanna is already making it known she’s ready to pick up her mantle of bad decision making. Just a few years after being beaten severely by then-boyfriend Chris Brown, the singer and Battleship actress is now publicly flirting and making music with her ex.

Many maintain that Brown has worked on his anger issues and is trying to turn over a new leaf. However, the fact that he’s had about 75 angry, public outbursts since he beat in a girl’s face paints a contradictory picture.

This is surely part of the publicity machine promoting both artists, and we’re not here to condemn or judge. But at the same time, gross you guys. Why would anyone want to return to a situation that has caused them so much pain? Sometimes temptation is just too strong. As the characters on this list can attest.

Tommy Callahan – Tommy Boy

Tommy Callahan is a character who never learns. From cow-tipping to walking into windows, it takes a lot of effort to get him to open up and welcome some positive changes in his life. His lapsed intelligence is credited to his brain being clogged with malted hops and bong resin, but it goes further back than that, as he frequently ate paint chips and lived beneath power lines.

Harry and Lloyd – Dumb and Dumber

Harry and Lloyd just can’t say no to putting themselves in horrible situations. Throwing out all logic, they’re constantly stumbling through life falling victim to hot peppers, cold poles, and frozen urine. If only they’d spent some time learning from their mistakes, they could avoid the multitude of perilous situations they put themselves in on the day-to-day.

Good news for people who like inexplicable news: TMZ is speculating that Rihanna and Chris Brown might be rekindling their relationship after they spent a night together at Greystone Manor nightclub in West Hollywood. Chris Brown’s PR rep (most thankless job in the world, btw) issued a statement that they’re not dating and just friends.

After he beat her savagely on the side of the road, you would think that Rihanna couldn’t cut him out of her life fast enough, but there’s no accounting for sentiment, as often the lovelorn wait too long to cut the cord, often causing dire results. Here are just a few such examples in the world of film and television.

Ginger – Casino

Over the course of her relationship with Sam Rothstein, she slept with his best friend, stole towels from his hotel, tied up his child, cheated on him with her pimp ex-boyfriend, then tried to swindle him out of as much money as she could. Frankly, doing one of these things is too much to forgive, especially the towel theft.

She’s hot and infectious, so I can understand why Sam kept coming back to her, exercising infinite patience, but that doesn’t mean it was the right thing to do. He should have kicked her ass to the curb, if not killed her.

Ike – What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Ike may not be fictional, but he is a character in a movie, and he’s plenty abusive, so I have no qualms putting him on this list. He got second chances in spades from wife Tina, with his “I can change, baby” attitude lampooned (hysterically) by Tim Meadows on Saturday Night Live.

Ike was so sinister and shitty that in a 1985 interview, when he was asked about his alleged abuse of ex-wife Tina, he said “Yeah I hit her, but I didn’t hit her more than the average guy beats his wife.” He then went on to restate his position a little differently, in a fashion that would be funnier if it didn’t involve domestic abuse – “Sure, I’ve slapped Tina… There have been times when I punched her to the ground without thinking. But I have never beat her.”

I’m going to the dictionary to make sure I know what “beat” means.
