Famous Greeks... or are they???

Reading through the "Did you pledge someone famous" thread, it seems like there are a lot of celebrities who people *think* were Greek, but no one can verify which GLO they belonged to (or if they even went to college). So, if you want to find out if a certain celeb is Greek, post here and let your fellow GC'ers help you investigate.

I think there are 3 or 4 groups that claim Delta Burke, and the only place she went to college was in London...where there are no sororities.

Didn't she also go to Florida? I know that many ZTA chapters put her in the famous listing, but she says (I think it was on Lifetime) that she was never in a house.

I thought she had gone to a school in Florida also. A lot of ZTA's have her one their website as their famous alum. Also, I've heard Lynda Carter (wonder woman) as well.

I can personally vouch for this. He went to college in Arizona. I've also seen a picture of him as well as a framed, autographed t-shirt in our Headquarters when I went to Leadership School. David Spade rocks!!!
