What Reality TV Teaches Us About Love and Marriage

by Stephanie Earp, posted Aug 9th 2011 12:00PM
The conclusion of another season of the 'The Bachelorette' and last night's debut of the dirty after-party called 'Bachelor Pad' got me thinking about the state of marriage -- at least on reality TV.

My parents got married at City Hall. My mom was wearing a caftan over her baby bump (I was born a few months later) and my dad wore a V-neck sweater, high-heeled boots and five o'clock shadow. It was the '70s and the whole thing cost as much as the marriage license. Granted, it didn't last, but as I'm sure you've noticed, most marriages don't.

Will Sonny and Brenda Survive Their Wedding on 'General Hospital'?

by Michael Maloney, posted Feb 18th 2011 12:20PM
General Hospital"Marriage is death," as the saying goes, for soap opera couples, meaning that head writers often find it difficult to come up with story and conflict for happily wed duos. But the scribes at 'General Hospital' don't appear to have that problem with star-crossed lovers Sonny and Brenda, who are (finally!) tying the knot.

Several obstacles stand before the duo. First, there's Carly, Sonny's vengeful ex-wife, who is determined to tell Sonny that Brenda gave birth to his own grandchild in order to make sure that the wedding doesn't happen.

And then there's Maude Adrienne Barbeau, aka Brenda's "pal" Suzanne. In reality she and her husband, the Balkan (Daniel Benzali), are the parents of the man whom Brenda killed. They've vowed to get even!

Finally, there's Franco (played by James Franco), who is obsessed with destroying Jason. What better way to accomplish that than to ruin the life of Jason's best friend Sonny and Jason's pal and one-time wife, Brenda?

TV Squad spoke to Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda) for a preview of today's highly anticipated episode.

Top 20 Most Memorable Soap Weddings of All Time

Bo and Hope weddingSoap opera weddings are often the culmination of years of dealing with heartache and conquering adversity. But just because the couple exchanges "I do's" doesn't mean it's happily ever after -- as Sonny and Brenda's upcoming wedding on 'General Hospital' is proving.

Many, but not all couples on soaps get hitched for the right reasons. Sometimes the bride or groom is blackmailing the other or someone just wants to land a rich spouse!

One thing's for sure -- soap weddings are always memorable. Here's a look back at 20 soap wedding ceremonies (or post-ceremony moments) that fans remember fondly. Is your favorite not on the list? Let us know!

Desperate Housewives: Getting Married Today (season finale)

by Jen Creer, posted May 20th 2007 11:39PM
desperate housewives(S03E23) I have to admit, I swore at the end of this episode/season Edie was going to end up getting pregnant. I was so not expecting this. If you haven't watched tonight's episode yet, I suggest you stop reading now and NOT click on the link for the rest of the post.

Let's go ahead and start with Gaby since today was her big day. Her little hissy fit that Bree was late certainly took on new meaning after seeing her fight with Victor from the night before. Wow, how many excuses is she going to make for him? It's not too late to get the wedding annulled, or is it? He and his father seem to have a lot of power, and I am not convinced she could get out of the marriage at this point. I think they would do what they could to stop her, regardless of what that might entail.

Court TV greenlights John Waters-hosted series

by Julia Ward, posted Nov 15th 2006 11:01AM
John WatersCourt TV has begun production on its first original scripted series 'Til Death Do Us Part. Each episode will dramatize bizarre cases of happily married couples whose relationships take a turn for the murderous worse. Hosting each episode will be Mr. Bizarre himself - John Waters.

The director of such trash classics Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble will star as the "Groom Reaper," guiding us through the grizzly murders that resulted from these most unholy of matrimonies. The show will debut in 2007.

I'd be slightly more excited if Waters were directing the series, but its subject matter is right up his alley -- if only it were set in Baltimore.

Desperate Housewives: It Takes Two

by Jen Creer, posted Oct 1st 2006 10:40PM
Bree and Susan on Desperate Housewives(S03E02) Okay, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't think Orson killed his wife. What do you think? I mean, seriously, he may be clean in a creepy way-- but so is Bree. The woman's body was not his missing wife's-- though he clearly knew the woman, based on his saying something to her and calling her "Monique" as he left the morgue.

So, is this another missing wife? Maybe, but we don't know that.

The Office: Dwight's Speech

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Mar 3rd 2006 9:55AM

You know you're living in a Bizarro World when Dwight wins Dunder Mifflin's salesman of the year award. He's feeling quite saucy, but when Michael informs him that he must make a speech at the company sales convention, his bravado turns into quivering fear. Michael, of course, takes some time to brag about his past accomplishments and his "penchant" for public speaking.

Michael decides to help Dwight with his public speaking, and in his own obnoxious way, tries to get Dwight to overcome his fear. His "examples" include making a bogus announcement to the staff that they've all gotten $1,000 bonuses. (It was funny watching the staff celebrate and seeing Stanley call his wife and deciding on buying something for their home.) Dwight tries to emulate Michael, but to no avail.

How I Met Your Mother: The Wedding

by Ryan j Budke, posted Jan 10th 2006 11:15AM
how i met your mother; ted; barneyJust how hard is it to plan the perfect wedding? I wouldn't know, I've never actually made it that far, but over the past couple of years, as more and more of my friends have gotten married, and as I watch my little sister go through the steps leading up to hers this fall, I do agree with Marshall: you never cross the bride! Doing so can topple the delicate house of cards that is a wedding to begin with. Unfortunately, that's exactly what our lovelorn hero Ted did last night, all for the attention of a girl. Come on guys, we would never do anything stupid just for a girl, right? Right? On with the show!
