    ‘Runaway bride’ says she’s found love at last

    Remember Jennifer Wilbanks?

    ‘Runaway bride’ says she’s found love at last

    I am hoping this isn't another train wreck coming, but.....

    Still, Wilbanks has found that unconditional love doesn’t pay the bills. The New York Post reported she recently declared bankruptcy after racking up some $30,000 in credit card debt to stores such as Victoria’s Secret and Old Navy. Wilbanks is unemployed, and her only means of support is the $1,000 a month boyfriend Hutson doles out to her.
    Something tells me that her ex-fiance is grateful for her "stunt". He has since married himself.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Wow, you would have to buy a *lot* of clothes to rack up around that level of debt at Old Navy....

    Lord have mercy-I lived this story. My husband and I had a condo not a mile from this crazy broad's housie with her then-fiancee. When this all occurred, I was in weekly meetings for an arts festival held on the Town Green of Duluth, GA......and the then mayor, a fabulous gal named Shirley Lassiter, was also one of our chairpeople. Every dang meeting, Shirley would be late because there'd have been a daily interview with one of the major networks. Those huge satellite dishes and satellite dish trucks were permanent fixtures outside city hall.

    We all knew people-who-knew this girl, and she was trashy and suspect from the word go. I recall some talk of shoplifting in a Gainesville, GA Walmart or K-Mart.......but my memory might not be perfect there. Her then fiancee was the heir to a local family whose menfolk were all doctors-or mostly. Big fish in a small pond. We all figured this girl saw dollar signs. I don't think the young man was any rocket scientist either.

    But-we all got a huge laugh out of it and some met some really nice national newspeople.

    That was my first thought!

    Wonder where she's stashing all of the clothing.

    If I were a straight guy (and her type whatever that is), I'd tell this woman I was gay if she even expressed the slightest interest in me. She sounds absolutely batshit-I'll-set-your-car-on-fire-kinda crazy.

    She should have her own island.

    if you were a straight guy and she expressed even the slightest interest in you, your private parts would shrivel up and crawl inside as some part of defense mechanism

    He married himself?
    Can you do that?

    To be honest I can barely see her crazy eyes tanks to the blinding orange of her skin....perhaps she's learned some diversionary tactics

    Definite bunny-boiler, if you ask me .

    When she pulled that stunt, it was all the Atlanta news could focus on for days. Did she ever have to pay the city/county back for the cost of searching for her?

    Also, I'm with everyone who's bumfuzzled at how anyone could rack up that much debt at Old Navy . That's an awful lot of hoodies and capri pants .

    Think she could pose as one of those damned model-quins they had in their ad campaign? Of course, that might drive business away
    Gun Control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to buy cars.

    The original husband-to-be must be thanking his lucky stars that she ran away. He really dodged a bullet.

    Those bug eyes would probably make the manequin top heavy and it would tip over.

    Did anyone else ever squeeze their Barbie Doll's head slightly? The effect was not unlike Ms Wilbanks and her Crazy Eyes (tm)

    The runaway bride thing, along with the debt, makes me wonder if she has a serious problem with impulse control. Originally I didn't think the runaway bride incident was an impulse decision (nor did I think it wasn't--no clear evidence either way), but combined with this, she definitely has a mental disorder.
