PRLog - Sep. 21, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- It's the norm in "the biz" for couples to marry and divorce, most times relationships come and go in a blink. But Brannon and Larisa Bates have been married almost ten years which in dog years... or Hollywood years... is about a century.
The couple met early in their careers while working as instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studios. "They have always been a very low key, private couple" says a source close to the couple. But it seems like lately they are rarely seen together. They are both certainly busy enough that it isn't unusual to be apart for weeks on end with Brannon working on the much anticipated thriller "Echoes Beneath" project with Monsterworks pictures which will star Maria Olsen. Following Echoes he is already attached to star in "Black Waters" which is a horror film that is so tight lipped that even the production team doesn't even know anything about the script.
Larisa has been plenty busy with her booming and trending company LA Dance events that is in very high demand in the Los Angeles and Beverly Hills communities. She has been the private ballroom dance instructor to celebrities for the last decade including Forest Whitaker and the family of Bruce Willis just to name a couple of her very high end clientele.
Everything has always seemed rosy with the couple until recently when Brannon Bates was seen in Los Angeles, New York, and even in London having dinner and out around town with several actresses and models which has many wondering if this could be the big split.
Only time will tell but it would be a real shocker to many who have known the couple as one for so long.
