According to America's reluctant prince, Carolyn's mother, Ann Freemanhad asked openly during their wedding toast if John was the right man for her daughter.
Anthony, however, softened the awkwardness with his groomsmen toast. "We all know why John would marry Carolyn," he said. "She's smart, beautiful, and charming … What does she see in John? A person who over the years has enjoyed teasing me, playing nasty pranks, and tormenting me in general. Well, some of the things which I presumably attracted Carolyn John to his care, charm and big heart of gold. "
Before they married, Carolyn had become increasingly preoccupied with George, much to the dismay of John's partner Michael Berman, who sold his half of the magazine in 1997. Carolyn missed her own career by the way, but it wasn't her.I'm not sure what she wanted or could do next, thanks to her oversized fame.
Then, in 1998, John, an adventurous nature lover who always tried to get faster or higher or to some more remote location, began flying – something his mother had asked him not to do in his lifetime.
