Runaway Brides

I was watching the news interview of Jennifer Wilbanks and her fiance, John Mason, the other night. This was the Georgia woman who faked her own kidnapping three days before her wedding.

Something that the couple said at the very beginning of the interview struck me as odd. As born again Christains they had both decided when they first met to wait until their wedding night for sex. Not that I think waiting till your wedding night for sex is strange (although since they are both in their early thirties Guiness Book might want to check it out). But the fact did set off some red flags.

What exactly would make this sweet, emotional, seemingly caring woman run from the wedding and man of her dreams, piss off her 17 bridesmaids and worry her mom and dad to death? I don't think she was running from the wedding...or the lifelong committment it symbolizes.

I think...(and as my dad says, my opinion and 25 cents wouldn't buy you a cup of coffee)...that she wasn't running from the wedding.

This remind me of that game called Clue...you know...Miss Scarlet did it in the dining room with the lead pipe. Anyway...

She wasn't running from the wedding. She was running from the wedding NIGHT, perhaps due to some kind of sexual abuse as a child that she has yet to deal with.

Anyway, a lot of people are still extremely mad at her, and I guess what I'm trying to say is who are we to judge? Even if we did know all of the facts, which we may never know, the girl is obviously troubled. I think everyone needs to give her a break.

TOM AND KATIE GETTING MARRIED

I thought he was gay??? If you saw the Oprah interview where Tom Cruise is jumping on the furniture over how ECSTATIC he is to be marrying Katie Holmes, you'll agree he was just a TAD bit too happy.

Tom, methinks you doth profess your love too much!

And when he dragged Katie Holmes on stage by her arm she had a strained smile on her face that read: "Someone help me, please!"

I watched that interview on TV also and I'm glad to see that she is getting help in dealing with her issues (whatever they are). They say that they still want to get married. More power to them. I think a small ceremony would be appropriate. She screwed up and maybe needs to grow up just a bit more. I hope she can work things out and have a happy life. As for Tom, wasn't he married to Nicole Kidman? I don't think he's gay - just short!

I think he's extremely sexy, short yes, but still... I heard the marriage to Nicole Kidman was arranged as well. And his marriage to Mimi Rogers before that. What a publicity stunt! Hollywood does make strange bedfellows.

OK, Karyn. Your comment about my "faults" has generated a response to your Freaky Friday. (It's verse than usual, too.)

John, I really appreciate your "verse than usual" post today. It made me laugh several times and smile the rest of the time. If that was an attempt to show off your talents to alienate people then it didn't work (this time). Besides, how could I be alienated by the only man who writes me poetry?

You all do know that Jennifer is making a lot of money selling her story to the media.

I love my family too much to do that to them. I'm lucky I have that kind of relationship to where I can go to them for help.

Karyn Lyndon said...

While that part about your family is true, I think you're just sucking up because you're enjoying being the "good" child since kendallysnicket's unfortunate incarceration...

katydanzer said...

No, you know that I have come to you in times of need... instead of running and hiding.

Plus I'm still the good one anyway and not stupid enough to sleep in jail!

Karyn Lyndon said...

True...all true...

Karyn, I might be a cynic, but I keep wondering what kept he so occupied, for all that time, supposedly not knowing the whole country was looking for her?

Holed up in a hotel room (alone?), and not watching TV? In Vegas?

This whole story just doesn't add up... I think there was a whole 'other plan' in play...

Just that's just my .02

According to her recount of the situation she was on busses the entire time. Her original destination was Austin, TX but she changed her mind in Dallas and spent the last of her money on another bus ticket to Vegas. By the time she got to Vegas she didn't have any money for a motel room. That's when she called home with her fabricated story of a kidnapping and her family told her to call the Vegas police.

I was going to post about Runaway but shelved it until I saw your blog. You inspired me to finish it - I posted it tonight with a link to your site. It is titled "Southern Bride Chicken," if you are interested on my take. Bill, in his comment seems to hinting in the direction of my blog.
