Close to two decades ago, fate intervened as Stephanopoulos, the esteemed ABC news analyst, and Wentworth, a gifted comic actress, embarked on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend.

On a fateful Wednesday, April 6, at 12:30 p.m., Stephanopoulos and Wentworth's lives intertwined as they engaged in conversation. It was an encounter that would leave Stephanopoulos forgetting his lunch, enchanted by Wentworth's ability to spark laughter.

Their whirlwind romance swiftly led to a heartfelt wedding ceremony attended by friends such as Paulina Porizkova, James Carville, and David Westin, who bore witness to the depth of their connection. Their union symbolized a blending of two worlds — Stephanopoulos' political background and Wentworth's lineage of well-connected Yankee stock.

Wentworth's mother, Muffie Brandon Cabot, had served as the social secretary to Nancy Reagan, and Wentworth's childhood was punctuated by political skits performed in front of luminaries like Richard M. Nixon and Henry A. Kissinger. Her comedic talents eventually propelled her to the Fox comedy show "In Living Color" and a thriving career in film and writing.
