Sun Sets On Zora Fairy Tale

There was no fairy tale ending when the cameras stopped rolling for Evan Marriott and Zora Andrich of "Joe Millionaire" fame. The statuesque brunette said last night she and Marriott are "friends" and she's "not really" dating anyone.

Andrich said she hasn't seen Marriott since they took a flight together back to New York from Los Angeles after the filming of last week's aftermath episode, when they talked about getting together for a beer.

But last night, she didn't seem certain she'd even see Marriott again. "I think we might make a few appearances together, see what happens," she said.

Andrich, 29, a substitute teacher from Lambertville, N.J., wore a tight-fitting black suit, heels and pearls to a corporate bash at the Copacabana last night.

She was paid about $5,000 to attend the Isle of Capri Casinos event, where the riverboat gambling concern unveiled a new Ricardo Montalban commercial.

Andrich said her life is "completely different" since millions of Americans watched Marriott woo her at a French chateau. "I don't even know where to start," Andrich said. "I've lost all anonymity - local papers, they talk about what I purchase in the store."

Most people who've approached her have been complimentary, she said: "They were very pleased in the way I presented myself, conducted myself."

Asked if she'd do it all again, Andrich, who got $500,000 at the end of the show, replied, "It depends on when you ask me."
