VH1�s �My Fair Brady: The Wedding Special� Brings Ratings Bliss With The Highest-Rated Episode For The Series Ever

Chris And Adrianne�s Vows Attracts More Than 2 Million Total Viewers

Santa Monica, CA, July 25, 2006 � And they said it wouldn�t last� Sunday night�s season finale of �My Fair Brady: We�re Getting Married!� was the highest rated episode of the series ever. The season finale scored an impressive 1.5 rating in the key 18-49 demo as more than 2 million total (P2+) viewers and 1.6 million P18-49 viewers watched sweethearts Chris Knight and Adrianne Curry say their �I Dos.�

The season finale was 25 percent higher than last season�s finale in which Christopher and Adrianne got engaged.

The 90-minute special tied with TNT* for the highest-rated program in its time period of 9:00 -10:30 PM on all of basic cable television among viewers 18-49. �My Fair Brady: The Wedding Special� was also the top-rated regularly scheduled program on all of basic cable for the day, Sunday, July 23.

America�s reality sweethearts and stars of VH1�s �My Fair Brady� caught each others eyes on VH1�s �The Surreal Life 4� two years ago. Following their time in the �Surreal Life� house Chris and Adrianne moved in together, which was captured during season 1 of �My Fair Brady.� Season two, �My Fair Brady: We�re Getting Married!� captured all the challenges of planning a traditional wedding with the most untraditional couple.

Getting past their differences wasn�t easy but they finally said their �I Dos� in front of 250 friends and family during a traditional ceremony held in Curry�s hometown of Joliet, IL. The bride wore a cream-colored custom-made Alvina Valenta gown, while the bridesmaids wore blood-red evening dresses. The groom and the groomsmen wore matching tuxedos. Curry and her bridesmaids carried black-magic roses. In attendance were former �Brady Bunch� stars Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) and Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady), as well as their �The Surreal Life 4� co-star Joannie �Chyna� Laurer.

From the rehearsal BBQ to the steamy ceremony to the �Phantom of the Opera� reception theme, Curry & Knight�s wedding was a reality fairy tale come true. Barry Williams even serenaded the happy couple as a special surprise!

�My Fair Brady: We�re Getting Married!� is produced by Mindless Entertainment/51 Pictures with Cris Abrego and Mark Cronin serving as Executive Producers. Jeff Olde and Jill Holmes serve as Executive Producers for VH1.
