Christopher Knight and Adrienne Curry to 'Do Russia' in WE tv special
By Christopher Rocchio, 10/25/2007
WE tv has announced it will air Chris and Adrianne Do Russia, a two-hour docu-reality special starring My Fair Brady lovebirds Christopher Knight and Adrianne Curry as they embark on a Russian adventure, on Sunday, December 2 at 9PM ET/PT.
"This was, for us, about the first place we traveled to of significance, where neither of us have had any experience previously," said Knight. "This was something where we both got to experience a culture and the environment for the first time together."
Knight and Curry traveled to Russia over the summer to host the 2007 Mrs. World competition, which aired on WE tv in June. However hosting the beauty pageant wasn't all they did, as the reality TV couple also took in some of the sights and sounds of the former Soviet Union.
Destinations on their trip included a stop in Moscow where they tried some local delicacies -- such as bull penis -- as well as 12-hour train ride to St. Petersburg, where Curry had to go to the hospital after falling ill.
Not surprisingly, the couple learned some life lessons along the way.
"I appreciate the toilet paper and Kleenex at home, probably more than anything else," said Curry. "This was particularly rough, not just for us but for everyone around us."
Curry was crowned America's Next Top Model'sfirst-season champ in 2003, but the 25-year-old wasn't even born when Knight played the role of Peter Brady on the 1970s series The Brady Bunch. The two met during filming for VH1's The Surreal Life in 2004 before starring in their own show for the network -- My Fair Brady -- which documented their attempts at maintaining a romantic relationship.
Knight and Curry wed in May 2006, and their marriage served as My Fair Brady's series finale that July.
