EXCLUSIVE: Battle Creek On Deck Bar and Grill Honcho And Romantic Overlapper Dr. Robert Buckhannon's Secret 121 Day Marriage (And His Church) Revealed! After Tanya—But Before Marlena and Kelly Overlapped—There Was Eva! And Miss Fortune Has Her Picture!


Miss Fortune has discovered Robert Buckhannon's secret Florida marriage—an unholy union that ended 121 days later with an annulment settlement agreement sealed tighter than a doomsday vault.

Official Sarasota County records show Buckhannon and one Eva Gallova Katz, a naturalized American citizen born in the Czech Republic, were married on May 17, 2003 shortly after taking out a marriage license on April 7.

Buckhannon's divorce from his previous wife, Tanya, was final on November 26, 2002.

Proving that those who marry in haste DO repent at leisure, "Rebound Rob" Buckhannon filed a petition for annulment in Manatee County, Florida, on August 22, 2003. The terms of the settlement are confidential and known only to the two parties involved, so even your girl Miss Fortune cannot determine all the gooey details.

However, a deeper dive into the murky waters of Sarasota County's official records shows that the marriage may have been doomed by another case our "crooked chiropractor" was simultaneously involved in—the violation of a personal protection order taken out against him by the former Treasurer of the Buckhannon Family Ministries, Inc.

What, Dr. Rob had his own church, and does that mean Miss Fortune can finally call him the "sinister minister"?

Not so fast.Your girl Miss Fortune could find no evidence that Buckhannon ever launched a church, but will provide an update if any evidence of a congregation surfaces.

Formed as a non-profit corporation by Buckhannon in November 2007 under Florida statues, the "church" received its "unconditional exemption" from the IRS in July 2002.

Classified as a "Protestant Religious Organization" by the IRS, the "church" is completely exempt from federal taxes. While a "church" is required to file a return with the federal government, it is not required to file a Form 990.

Property records for the address shown in Florida's corporation database indicate the Buckhannon Family Ministries, Inc. headquarters location, shown at left, as a 3,341 square foot, five bedroom, 3.5 bath home located located at 364 Avenida Leona in Sarasota. It sits at the end end of quiet cul-de-sac on a big corner lot within walking distance to Siesta Key Village. 

No mention of an organ, steeples or a choir loft.

(Funny, my church does not have a lanai.) 

A further check with Sarasota County appraiser records adds local flavor to a narrative that seems to run through Dr. Rob's life on a continuous loop—buy property, borrow money, lose property.

Records show that the Buckhannon "church" property did indeed have a real house of worship on the site owned in 2001 by the Florida District of the Wesleyan Church. Located at 5005 S. Beneva Road in Sarasota, the building now houses the Life Church of Sarasota and is owned by the Peninsular Florida Assemblies of God Church, Inc.

Official documents show the property was seized in 2003 by the Wesleyan Church after the Buckhannon Family Ministries failed to make a nearly $500,000 balloon payment, an obligation established in the 2001 transaction financed by a promissory note held by the Wesleyan Church.

I guess that gives new meaning to the term "laying on of hands".

So what else don't we know about Robert Buckhannon? 

Leave it to Miss Fortune to discover it—and reveal it right here!
