Just had to finish up the last episodes of the New Year’s Day “Twilight Zone” marathon, episodes which were waiting patiently on the DVR. Again, it’s such a relief to get away from the moronic Housewives and watch well-written, well-acted, intelligent, thought-provoking SCRIPTED television!
Re the ODDriana de Moura marriage to Fredric Marq, which took place back in 2008… checked out the Miami-Dade requirements for residents to marry. According to Harvey Ruvin, the Miami-Dade Clerk of the Courts…
In order to become legally married in the state of Florida both bride and groom must apply for a marriage license in person. There is no residency or citizenship requirement to apply for a Florida marriage license.
The marriage ceremony must be performed within 60 days of the issuance of the license. After the marriage ceremony, the marriage license must be returned to the Miami-Dade County Marriage License Bureau.
The state requires all Florida residents to take a four hour premarital course or wait three days for the marriage license to be effective. This does not apply to non-Florida residents. A directory of premarital course providers is available online or at all district court locations.
When applying for a marriage license both bride and groom must apply in person. If one or more of the applicants are minors, under 18 years of age, additional requirements apply.
All applicants must present the following:
One (1) valid identification is required with the applicant’s picture, signature, and date of birth, a Driver License issued by any state in the U.S., Passport, a U.S. Military ID, Alien Registration Card, or State of Florida ID issued by DMV are acceptable. Anyone issued a Social Security Card must provide their number.
All U.S. citizens and residents must provide their Social Security Number.
Non-U.S. Citizens may provide one of the following valid Identifications: Alien Registration Card, US State issued Driver’s License, or Passport if they do not have a Social Security Number.
If either applicant has been previously married, the exact date of the last divorce, death or annulment must be provided. If the divorce took place in Miami-Dade County go to the Family Online Case Search and view the docket link for final judgment date which is date of divorce.
ODDriana and/or her PR person mentioned the word “misconception” re the marriage. After reading the requirements above, there can be no “misconception” about ODDriana being married! AND… for ODDriana’s PR person to say that the marriage is null and void because of a TYPO on the license is ridiculous! That’s like sayin’ that because a letter was missing on your name when you were born that you don’t exist! Here’s a suggestion for ODDriana: git yerself a brand new PR person immediately! No one is buying the “TYPO” excuse… and there is no “misconception” about your marriage!
Have also been wondering if Lea Black, ODDriana’s “hand that fed her,” knew that ODDriana was married? If ODDriana played Lea… which we thought way back in March 2011… then Fredric was also in on the scam; which makes Fredric a scammin’ scumbag and not as financially stable as ODDriana would like viewers to think! Lea was assisting with ODDriana’s son’s tuition while ODDriana and Fredric were married…. and Freddy allowed Lea to assist, even though Freddy is supposed to be some huge, big-time, big money decorator? IF this is what actually happened, shame on ODDriana and Freddy!
Now… on to much more important Housewives subjects!
Was curious as to why the Real Housewives of Atlanta was moved to 8 pm from its usual time slot of 9 pm tonight. Could the reason be that Bravo didn’t want to have the Atlanta Housewives crushed in the ratings by lil HoneyBooBoo? ”Here Comes HoneyBooBoo’s” season two premiere just happens to take place tonight at 9 pm!
What will be interesting will be the winner of the 9 pm time slot, as VH1′s “Mob Wives” also airs tonight at 9 pm! Who will win? I’m goin’ with HoneyBooBoo!
Not THIS HoneyBooBoo!
What were all the rumors about crime mom Alexia EchoWhatever’s husband?
IF MamaMumbles had never relocated to Miami!
NOTE: There will be no Real Housewives of Atlanta recap tonight… WHY? ’Cause….
