Former "Seinfeld" wrier and executive producer of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," David Mandel, married his college sweetheart in NYC after an 18-year courtship. The bride, Dr. Rebecca Whitney, also the muse behind the infamous Bizarro Jerry episode, in which Jerry dates a woman with man hands, was weary of Mr. Mandel's advances for years, but couldn't seem to get rid of him. In Dr. Whitney's defense, she admits,“Part of my own personality quirk is fighting the inevitable by trying everything else along the way."

And for a man who sounds a lot like the neurotic characters he develops, “I don’t like human beings. I’m bothered by real and perceived slights, and I hold grudges for billions of years," acceptance is key. Did I mention he also "lives in a dark Los Angeles apartment with blackout shades covering all of the windows to protect his collection of comic books, toy robots and “Star Wars” stormtrooper helmets" ?

Seems like either Dr. Whitney learned to embrace her inner geek or grew up and realized that she was nearing 40 and her clock was a ticking. Either way it's matrimony. And makes for a decent photo opp.
