I believe Russell could not fathom the idea that Katy bathed, brushed her teeth and had regular hygiene because it's obvious from day one, Russell doesn't know what regular hygiene is!

I'm definitely on Russell's side on this. Why does everyone automatically assume he did something wrong or both of them did something really bad? The theory I agree with most is that he's a recovering addict, and Katy wasn't appreciative of that by continuing with her partying behaviour. Evidently, they also didn't spend much time together - Katy's immense tour, Russell's stand-up tour and movie projects, etc. I also think that while Russell wanted to settle down, Katy wasn't ready. They were at different life stages. A divorce was evident from the beginning. Shame, though, it's always sad no matter who gets a divorce and I liked them as a couple. Hopefully, they do remain friends.

What was the point of Russel and Katy even getting married? Almost all marrages in Hollywood don't last long.
