'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 get married.

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 love.

"Live with Regis and Kelly" is executive produced by Michael Gelman, and has been distributed in national syndication by Buena Vista Television since 1988. Produced by WABC-TV in New York, "Live with Regis and Kelly" airs in more than 200 markets across the country.
