Bride says she made a big mistake

LOS ANGELES - The woman who married a total stranger on national television said today she participated in Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? on a lark and made a big mistake.

"I don't think I was thinking clearly," nurse Darva Conger told Good Morning America today. "I committed an error in judgment." . . .

All together, now: DUH!!!!!

"I don't think I was thinking clearly," nurse Darva Conger told Good Morning America today. "I committed an error in judgment." . . .

At least she hasn't blamed her faulty judgment on PMS, YET.

She lost her logical and critical thinking abilities at the sound of money. Happens to every greedy people.

She'll be filing a lawsuit against FOX any day now for "making her participate in this circus."

I'm shocked she actually admitted to an error in judgement. How un- PC of her. Isn't someone else to blame for everything that goes "clunk" in your life?

I saw Rockwell in an interview where he was asked what it was about her that made him want to choose her over all the others. His response:

"She's a hockey fan!! I mean, how many women are there that really like hockey??"

Surely, a recipe for everlasting bliss!

Both appeared to have the intellectual abilities of a box of rocks (no offense to rocks), although I must admit that I'm no millionaire.

Fox, the bride and the groom all deserve one another. DUH. just wait till the other channels do the other real-life dramas. i can hardly wait for the cbs one that sends seven people to a remote island with nothing and then we can watch them all kill one another.

When I think of all the interesting, relevant things in the world that aren't on TV, and then we have this stupid crap, it's makes me shake my head.

Who wants to marry an idiot?

1) I used to date a hockey fan...but she liked the game better than she liked me... (sad, but true).

2) Fools rush in...

3) Everybody needs a first marriage. Do it, then get over it! Apparently, that may apply all too well in this situation.

4) Would you want her as your nurse? I want a nurse who thinks clearly.

5) Seriously, before you get married, think real hard about it. Pray about it. Ask advice about it from those who emotionally uninvolved and who are your friends. The alternative is multiple divorces. (And that isn't a fun situation! Been there, done that...)

Joan, Mark, Steve; I know that our latest show, Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire? wasn't quite the critical success we all thought it would be. Many thanks for your new suggestions for replacement FOX shows. I've listed them below, with my comments.

Who Wants to Defoliate a Continent? Steve, this is a big enough concept, but we'll have to consider which continent. Defoliating a continent that has a large viewership would be counterproductive, right?

Who Wants to Bite the Big One? Mark, could you elaborate? All you wrote was the title, and red crayons are difficult to read.

Who Wants to Punch Julia Child in the Mouth While She's Making a Souffle? Steve, I've got a call in to Julia to see if this concept is agreeable to her. She can be bought.

Who Wants to Eat a Live Bug? Mark, I've checked with the SPCA, and they don't recommend it. But I appreciate your switching to a black crayon.

Who Wants to Have Hot 'N' Steamy Sex With Dennis Rodman Right On Stage In Front of God and Everybody? Joan, I've also put in a call to Dennis Rodman. This has possibilities, including grossing-out both men and women.

Who Wants to Have a Pre-Frontal Lobotomy? Joan, if you'll think about this one for a minute, you'll see that a good percentage of the viewing public has apparently already had this done.

Who Wants to Eat a BIG OL' JUICY Bug? Mark, have you considered professional help?

We're almost there, guys. These are mostly good suggestions, deserving of a place on the FOX lineup in accordance with our high broadcast standards. But we really need something even bigger. Keep at it. I know you'll come up with something.
