Sabrina and Charlie Balducci’s Relationship
According to New York State records, Sabrina Maringo and Charlie Balducci registered their marriage in Staten Island on May 19, 2002.
Their wedding was documented in the 2001 season of MTV’s True Life when the reality TV genre was still new. Charlie’s infamous wedding day rant titled “I’m Getting Married” from that season is one of the most viral moments of the series.
Maringa and her bridal entourage were at a dress fitting when a person from MTV approached her. “A woman came up to me and she said, ‘I hear you in the room with your mom — you guys are hysterical.’ So I came home, I said, ‘Charlie, look, they’re having this MTV contest.’ He jumped all over it,” Maringa recalled.
Though their friends and family didn’t understand why the couple was letting cameras follow them for four months of wedding planning, they all gathered for a viewing party. The newlywed Balduccis and their family saw Charlie go on a rant on camera when their limo driver was over an hour late.
Sabrina Balducci had no idea about the incident until she saw it on the show. But she admits that she had her own fair share of meltdowns during the wedding preparations.
Back then, many believed this couple wouldn’t last. But they were together for over two decades, up until Charlie Balducci’s untimely death.
