BRIDE-TO-BE KELLY SMITH OF CLEVELAND WILL APPEAR NEXT TUESDAY, FEB. 11, ON THE NATIONAL DAYTIME TELEVISION SHOW 'LIVE WITH REGIS & KATHIE LEE'

BRIDE-TO-BE KELLY SMITH OF CLEVELAND WILL APPEAR NEXT TUESDAY, FEB. 11, ON THE NATIONAL DAYTIME TELEVISION SHOW 'LIVE WITH REGIS & KATHIE LEE'
 'Live' Airs on WEWS-TV/Channel 5 at 10 a.m. Weekdays
 BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Even though Kelly Smith of Cleveland did not win a chance to be married on "Live With Regis & Kathie Lee" this Valentine's Day, she is being flown back to New York to appear on the show next Tuesday, Feb. 11, anyway. Smith is one of the four brides-to-be finalists who will model designer wedding gowns in a special bridal fashion show on "Live."
 Along with thousands of others, Smith had entered herself and her fiance, Ryan Allen, in "Live's" contest to find its 1992 Valentine's Day wedding couple.
 Smith and Allen, both 27, met 2 1/2 years ago when they began working together in the advertising department of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. They became engaged on Labor Day 1990 with plans to marry on May 25, 1991. However, Allen was seriously injured in a November 1990 car accident while they were visiting Tampa, and their lives are just now getting back to normal. Sustaining a fractured shoulder, a broken hip and a shattered leg, Allen endured six hours of emergency surgery, a two-week stay in a Virginia hospital, another 10 days in a Cleveland hospital, and six months at home in a wheelchair and on crutches. There will be one more surgery, sometime this spring or summer, to finally remove the bar that was placed in his leg over a year ago.
 As Smith said to "Live" in her official entry letter: "Most people are lucky in their lives and marriages if they don't have to go through the hardship we've sustained. ... Yet through it all, our faith, the enormous support of family and friends, positive thinking, a little humor and a lot of attitude checking on both sides now and then, we've made it through what we hope is the worst of our 50+ years together."
 Smith grew up in the Lee-Harvard area of Cleveland. A graduate of Bowling Green State University with a degree in communications, she attended Adlai Stevenson Grade School, Whitney Young Junior High and John Marshall High School. Her parents are Lawrence and Anna Smith. Lawrence Smith, who also works at the Plain Dealer in the composing room, is a 30-year veteran who will be retiring this year.
 Allen grew up in the Richmond Heights area of Cleveland and attended Christ the King Elementary School and Shaw High School. He returned to Cleveland four years ago after a stint in the Navy aboard the USS Downes.
 ("Live's" 1992 wedding couple are Mark Vanase and Jessica Vickers of Storrs, Conn. They will be introduced to "Live's" millions of viewers next Monday, then featured on the show each day next week. Next Friday, Valentine's Day, "Live" will devote its entire show to their nuptials.)
