Law enforcement sources told TMZ … Balducci was found in response on Saturday in his bed. He was last seen around 2 a.m. this morning and they found him on the right side of their bed later that evening around 9 p.m. Paramedics responded, but pronounced Charlie dead at the scene.
We spoke to Charlie’s mother, who tells us that Balducci died unexpectedly because he did not show any illness. She said the last words he spoke to her were that he was happy to have his boys, who are 17 and 19, respectively.
Balducci was something of a pioneer of reality television. In 2001, Balducci allowed MTV cameras to monitor him for four months before marrying Sabrina … as a result of one of the most scandalous beams ever caught on television.
The day he got married, the limousine driver ran away late, urging Balducci to threaten the limousine driver: “I’ll gut you like the piece s ** t you are” and “I’ll chase you like cattle.”
Charlie and Sabrina were one of three couples featured on the reality show Real Life: Getting Married. They were discovered while wearing a dress after Sabrina said they had a woman who said they were hysterical. And when the opportunity arose to appear on the show, Balducci skipped everything.
Charlie and Sabrina have been married for more than a decade and have two children together.
