Shocker: The Captain & Tennille Divorcing! Say it Ain't So! Video!
"Say it ain`t so ... there`s no Muskrat Love left for Captain & Tennille ... they`re getting divorced ... and the Captain tells TMZ he didn`t see it coming.
Toni (Tennille) filed legal docs in Arizona, claiming the marriage was "irretrievably broken." They`ve been married for 39 years."
The Captain & Tennille hit it big in the late 1970`s with a string of hits including " Love Will Keep Us Together", " Do That to Me One More Time" and " Muskrat Love. " The husband and wife recording act have five albums certified gold or platinum, and they even hosted their own television variety show at the apex of their career.
In the 70`s my fantasy was to wear a Captain`s hat and make muskrat love with Tennille. These squeaky-clean superstars were an antidote to the cocaine-fueled rock stars of that era.
We though their love would endure forever, and that they would be making muskrat love well into their 70`s. But alas after 39 years Tennille has filed for divorce, she`s had enough of the Captain`s dorky hat, and muskrat love makes her want to hurl.
The Captain & Tennille have no children, but they have plenty of hits that will live on forever.
