Brendon and Rachel did not get married

Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas didn’t celebrate Rachel’s Big Brother win by getting married in Las Vegas this past weekend, despite Rachel insisting they would get married.

TMZ reports that Rachel said that because she was drunk (“that was just the alcohol talking”) and now cites ambiguous “sources close to Rachel” who say Rachel and Brendon “have no plans on a quickie wedding, but they do want to settle down in Los Angeles.” More significantly, Rachel plans on “pitching it as a reality show to various production companies and networks in hopes of having it all paid for.”

I have no doubt Rachel would love to have her wedding telecast, but I’m pretty confident she’ll have to settle for being the Pandora’s Box punishment next summer.
