 :chuckle2:  .......   Thanks for the honourable mention Manny   :prophead:


The big O will be circling the globe from what I gather in her marriage show.

 To add...
 Age gap , 51yo with a 19yo. Still married 6 years later,and she was only looking for a free ride to the USA. :coffeeread:
But things all seem cool with the two of them.  Vinni there is still hope maybe go for a younger one :) She was from Dnepropetrovsk, the TV crew went there, and she was walking around the river walk and in the centre near Lenin !  It was nice to see the Metro station has still not been finished after all these years :drunk:

I saw a clip of the Oprah show.  That particular bride said she was looking for a foreigner to get out of her country (not so directly, but pretty much sums it up).  Her husband is a wealthy art dealer with a penthouse in Manhatten.  They really skirted around the issue of "love", and neither answered that question when asked directly.

Never saw this thread before, fairly certain I know the dealer in fact he looks better than his "art"

As for her she seems to enjoy the life style but I thought she was about 10 years older than the 29 she is today.
