Stuttering John Ties The Knot!
WHEN nobody in the Hamptons wanted to loan Stuttering
John Melendez and his intended, Suzanna Keller, a beach to hold their wedding,
the Howard Stern sidekick plunked down $10,000 to rent an oceanfront house
for the whole month. Then he discovered the beach the other night at Zocalo
on East 82nd, sculptor Stanley Learner was prevailed upon to let the couple
use his beach next door. Then the town of Amagansett demanded that Stuttering
John take out a $1 million insurance policy to cover damages. But the wedding
Saturday went off without a hitch -- except the barefoot groom was unable
to smash the glass in the traditional manner.
