Runaway Bride Could Have Been Looking For Old Flame

Jennifer Wilbanks
Shoplifting Mugshot (1998)
From The New York Post:
May 16, 2005 -- TAOS, N.M. - Jennifer Wilbanks wasn't just running away from her wedding, she was running toward something - an old paramour with whom she had a steamy sexual relationship.

The bolting bride set her sights on New Mexico sometime during her three-day cross-country sprint from the altar because it's the home of a short-lived fling, several sources told The Post.

But if Wilbanks harbored hope of reigniting an old passion, she would have been sorely disappointed.

"I would have turned her ass in, no question," former flame Todd Kendrick told The Post. "And then," he joked, "I'd have asked for the $100,000 reward."

Also the price tag for the city of Duluth, Georgia's search has dropped to $40,000. The city and Wilbanks lawyer are negotiating a possible settlement.

Other than voluminous eBay auctions, action figures, and hot sauce, the Runaway Bride phenomenon appears to be abaiting...

fooltomery's link to the seperated at birth pics is utterly sublime.

The article says Jennifer "... (Below threshold)

The article says Jennifer "liked sex" and mentioned a number of the previous men she dated, so apparently she is what is known as a "party girl", that is, a woman whom men like to date and fool around with, but when it comes time to marry, they go with someone more stable. Except that sometimes one of her dates somehow acquires the delusion that she will be different with him, and that generally means he's in for a lot of hurt and heartache.

On the other hand, own my sister once admitted to me once that she went through a "promiscuous phase" when she was younger, but now she has been happily married for about 10 years and has a couple of daughters and a stable, productive life, so sometimes I suppose these things can work out.
