Q Did Chuck Woolery marry one of his sidekick girls on Lingo?
—Ola Bell, Speedwell, Va.

Game-show host Woolery, 66, did indeed make his own Love Connection—another TV game show he used to host—on the set of Lingo. But Kim Barnes worked backstage as a hair and makeup artist, not as one of Woolery's onstage female assistants. The couple married July 17, 2006, at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. Both bride and groom returned to their TV jobs when Lingo resumed production in February.
