Wedding bells rang in Las Vegas on January 17, 2009 for Bobby and the lovely Linda Hoffman.
Contrary to several news reports, Bobby’s new wife is NOT the same Linda Hoffman who is Bobby’s dear friend, longtime fan club president and web site coordinator

The 2-Linda’s have crossed paths for 25 years. They lived in the same town, had the same doctors, dentists, jewelers and shopped in many of the same stores – where their records would continuously be misplaced in one another’s files for many years. Each knew of one another’s existence but had never met, it got to be a joke it happened so often! Additionally, wife-Linda would mistakenly receive phone calls meant for fan club- Linda, who had an unlisted phone number. Mostly they were fans looking for a Bobby Rydell CD or autographed picture. Wife- Linda thought they meant Bobby Darin and said “isn’t he dead?” Fans set her straight! Finally, a series of several more bizarre circumstances culminated where the two-Linda’s eerily met in wife-Linda’s place of employment, far from the small town where the two lived.
Fan-club Linda told wife-Linda “maybe someday we’ll figure out why this is happening.”
In 2007 a mutual friend of wife-Linda and Bobby’s tried to fix them up. Bobby thought he was speaking of his friend and fan club president, long married herself. There was immediate magic when the two met.Friends say it’s meant to be.
The small, private ceremony took place in Las Vegas at
the fabulous Bootleggers Bistro on
the South Strip where love and happiness for the couple filled the hearts of
everyone at the touching service. The
Bootleggers Bistro is owned by Commissioner, Lorrainne
of Bobby's longtime friend, Dennis Bono.
fabulous gourmet reception followed the ceremony that was warm and wonderful,
reflective of Bobby and Linda themselves.
