Houston, Texas, UNITED STATES

MASON, Ohio, June 4, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Reality TV celebrity Bob Guiney, who will be coming to Mason, OH on Saturday, June 5 to promote Allied Home Mortgage Capital Corporation's (AHMCC) Loan-A-Rama, recently made it known that his "Bachelor" status will be changing.

In the last week of May, Guiney proposed to his girlfriend of five months, soap star Rebecca Budig. She is an actress on "All My Children" and a Kentucky native who attended the Cincinnati School of the Performing Arts and majored in zoology at Ohio's Miami University. The two reportedly met when Budig hosted "Bachelor XYZ," a "Bachelor" wrap-up show on ABC Family.

Guiney, the multi-talented reality television star/singer/author/mortgage broker, is coming to Mason to draw attention to the afternoon event designed to help educate the community about the home owning experience.

The Loan-A-Rama will be held from noon-5pm at the AHMCC office at 4680 Parkway Drive, Suite 202, Mason, Ohio 45040 and can be reached at (866) 270-5363.

"We know Bob will bring a lot of attention and people to the Loan-A-Rama and look at it as a community service event to help educate our neighbors about the home ownership process," AHMCC's Joe Roda said.

Roda explained that in addition to the musical performances and autograph signings by Bob Guiney, there will also be mini-seminars about the home owning experience with experts from all aspects of the process on hand to answer questions and provide information. Attendees will be able to get pre-approved for a home loan on the spot and walk away knowing exactly how much house they can afford.

"This will be a great, fun event for the entire family and our small way of sharing the joy of living in Mason with our surrounding area," Steve Ellis, the Allied branch's co-manager, said.

Bob Guiney will be available for interviews with the media upon request.
