[Jan 31] Nadia Comaneci's mother will get married

  Nadia Comaneci's mother, Mrs.Stefania Comaneci will get married soon, after a 3 years relationship with her fiancee, Mihai Nedelea. Last year they got engaged and they live together in Bucharest.

   The new comer in the "Perfect Ten's" family is well seen by everybody. Andrei Comaneci, Nadia Comaneci's Brother: "My mother's fiancee is a simple man with a good character; it doesn't matter his social status and what he did for a living (meaning he isn't a VIP) , but only the fact that he is making my Mom happy."

   The new couple-Mrs.Stefania Comaneci and fiancee Mihai Nedelea- made their fist public appearance at ROC's Gala dedicated to Nadia, Monday evening at Hilton Hotel in Bucharest.

   We got long time before that some first hand info about the new couple and all our sources spoke positive only about both of them and their future together. "He seems to be a nice guy and Nadia's No. Fan; it seems to bring a little bit of patience and a lot of understanding into Mrs.Stefania's life, which was under very much stress- you can imagine is not so easy to be the Mother of one of the most famous persons of all times."

   Nadia Comaneci's mother is a very good housekeeper and cooker also-a centuries old tradition in Moldavia, their homeland. No surprise that Nadia is doing so well in kitchen too, for Bart's enjoyment; their US neighbor, famous soap opera star "Young and Restless" [name to be added?-I don't watch such...things] was shown on Romanian ProTv station receiving Nadia and Bart visit; the gift?.. a salad from "vinete", popular Romanian (light) vegetarian food, originally from Greece.

  Nadia Comaneci's parents had divorced long time ago; her father has remained in their hometown Onesti while her mother lived in Bucharest in a VIP area.    Mrs.Stefania Comaneci, Nadia Comanecis mother is seen and beloved as much as former UK's "The Queen Mother" by Romanian people and has open doors everywhere, anytime. None of the local women from politics or administration has earned even a fraction from this respect.
  Nadia's Mother does respect and encourage Romanian gymnastics fans; she can't resist to any (of the thousands inquiries) demands from friends or new acquaintances for photos and autographs of Nadia- a reason why she is making huge supplies (but always in short supplies) of her daughter autographed photos each time when she "catch" Nadia at home. Funny enough to imagine (we saw recently on TV such a scene, during their Onesti visit) a Mother-daughter "autographed session" meeting- but that's the price to pay for being the Mom of such a Star :-).

  Nadia Comaneci's father, Gheorghe Comaneci, was overwhelm by his daughter success back in 70's and this is the main reason their parents divorced. A century old tradition in Romania (as in many other East European states) is to "celebrate" any big family or community event; great, huge quantities of alcohol involved. Is not polite to refuse/deny such invitations, because people will get seriously offended.
   You can imagine that, in a small town, the Father of the Miracle of the Century has got many, way too many such of invitations on a daily basis. He was the Most Famous Father and people want to "have a small drink" with him; hundreds, thousands of people...Thanks to his strong body, he did not become an alcoholic, but rather a husband who spend too much times with friends. A Wife don't like you to come late and they eventually get divorce.
   Few years ago, Nadia Comaneci's father got married himself with Mrs. Lenuta, a loving and supporting wife which seems to handle well her husband's local celebrity.
   The 70's evenings filled with parties are over and Mr. Gheorghe Comaneci is now a proud owner of his own business, a pickles shop business. He has his own (secret!) recipe and is very proud now about his own success. By the way, we tasted them and his pickles are delicious (especially the spiced ones!).
   Another Moldavia old tradition is that, no matter your age, if you are a Man you have to work, to be useful. This was the main driving force which make him go to the market each day. For his70's age is not so well to work during winter in minus 30 (Celsius!) , digging with empty hands in the freezing water barrels to sell those pickles. I'm sure that local gym fans and managers of gym clubs from Onesti, Bacau and any other neighboring big companies with their own cantinas will have an urgent need to stock pickles for their least so little we can do to support the Man in pursuing his dream.
   Tip for Bart: those 2 millions Lei ($70), reported by local media as Conner's family aid to Nadia's Father is a nice gesture; to be really useful, too, it needs to be increased to $500 or so, which may not be a problem, isn't it?
  Double Tip: buy/import all his pickles "production" to US for wholesale distribution to Romanian restaurants or local markets and you will save him from getting ill from staying long hours in cold; Dylan need to have a healthy Grandpa for long years to come! At least, if you deliver those pickles to US restaurants, you can even make a good profit (bigger one than with the magazine, anyway:-).
   Seriously, big shopping centers from UK, Spain, Italy, have included in their offer some products from Eastern Europe like traditional cheese, meat products or...pickles; and they have had big success selling them! Taste them and see.

  Details of "Mother's of Perfect Ten" coming marriage are kept under strong embargo, partly because Nadia has "ordered" so to her Mother and mostly because local tabloids or some *journalists* have no "mercy" to...their own mothers; they use to eat shit or invent stories on a daily base.

  "Casa de Piatra!"* Familiei Stefania Comaneci & Mihai Nedelea!

*Stone-made House! traditional Romanian greeting for a new marriage

**Reminder: to tell you next time a nice, funny story with Mrs. Stefania (a positive one, of course!)
