'Live With Regis and Kelly' Doubles the Romance During 'Wedding Week' 2005
It's 'Live's' Spectacular Annual Wedding Week Feb. 7-11, 2005, With a Bonus
'Lost Loves' Valentine's Wedding on Feb. 14!
NEW YORK, Feb. 4 -- It's the most romantic week of the year
on "Live with Regis and Kelly," as the popular morning talk show presents its
annual "Wedding Week" Feb. 7-11, 2005. And this year "Live" will double the
romance with a bonus "Lost Loves" Valentine's Wedding on February 14.
"Live" put out the word to engaged couples who have been prevented by
circumstances from keeping their wedding date, inviting them to write in for
the chance to be featured on this special week of shows. This year's "Wedding
Week" couple is Louise Fullerton and Rob Sarofeen of Peabody, Mass. They met
in college and have been together for 3-1/2 years. The last year has been
filled with obstacles for them -- Rob is a quadriplegic, and has dealt with
multiple health challenges and hospitalizations. They drastically cut back on
their original wedding plans after using their wedding savings to buy a home.
And Rob's medical problems have caused them to accelerate their timeline to
Each day during "Live's Wedding Week 2005," the audience will get to know
Louise and Rob and share in the exciting build-up to their special day. And
throughout the week, the full extent of their "Live" wedding experience will
be revealed to them, culminating with a spectacular live on-air ceremony on
Friday, February 11, hosted by Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa.
The celebrations continue on Monday, Valentine's Day, as Regis and Kelly
host yet another gala wedding. Last year during "Live's Lost Loves Week,"
Angela Collins and Bo Swartwout, of Hyannis Port, Mass., were reunited after
being apart for 14 years. But their story goes back even farther -- they met
as teenagers in Orange County, Calif., eventually separating when she went to
New York to study theater. Both ended up marrying other people.
Years later she divorced, returned to Calif., and ran into him on the same
beach where they'd originally met. He also was divorced, and they began
dating again. Unfortunately, this time they opened a business together and
the stress caused another break-up.
They came together again years later when Angie's brother passed away,
falling in love once more. But tragedy forced them apart for the third time,
when a fire destroyed their home and they lost everything.
At the point that Angie and Bo were reunited on "Live," they hadn't seen
each other for 14 years, and each had been trying to track down the other.
Their "Live's Lost Loves" encounter reignited their feelings once again, and
they were engaged in December. Their Valentine's Day ceremony on "Live with
Regis and Kelly" will be a fitting tribute to the tenacity of their life-long
