GLO Famous Members Urban Legends

The thread about Sarah Jessica Parker has inspired me!

Which celebrities do people say are in your GLO, that aren't really in your GLO?

For example, I've heard like a gajillion times that Cindy Crawford was a Pi Phi at a school in the midwest but dropped out of school before she initiated. I'm not buying it!

Interestingly, if you do a search for Cindy Crawford on our website you come up with an Ontario Beta that works for the Royal Bank of Canada!

How about the one that every national fraternity/sorority had the rituals published and put in the Library of Congress, except for one, because President XXXXXXXX was a member of XYZ and took it out, or the President's wife was an ABC and he took it out.

Hahaahahahaha!!! I heard it was President Truman, whose daughter was a Pi Phi (not sure if that's even true)! I'm sure there's a variation with the Coolidges, too. (Mrs. Coolidge was a Pi Phi!)

Other Pi Phi rumors, compiled by me and my sister dubyuhnellpiphi (who barely posts):

Susan Sarandon
Susan Lucci
Elizabeth Shue
Jane Seymour (definately NOT American or Canadian! lol people!)

We're pretty much sure all those are false... hehehehe

Heather Locklear is not a Chi Omega. Lucy Liu is though!

For some reason, my chapter was convinced that Courtney Cox was a DZ...we even had a rush skit one year that featured one of our members dressed up like her. She might be a member of another group, but I really don't think she's a Delta Zeta.

'Cause she's British! And Jane Seymour's a stage name -- her birth name is Joyce Wilhelmina Frankenberg, OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire -- one step below knighthood.)

Isn't Delta Burke a Pi Phi?

Faith and Jenny also never went to college.

I think it was her character, Suzanne Sugarbaker who was a Pi Phi. Apparently she was a Pi Phi from Ole Miss (though I never watched the show).

Gonna do a search now, cuz I think I got that info off Greek Chat!

Bette Midler is NOT a D Phi E, although many claim she is. The woman went to college in hawaii, for like a year, and then came back to NYC. Sorry Deephers, but we still have no entertainers I'm aware of Maybe Cream can join the circus!

Grace Kelly isn't a Tri Delt, although some websites may lead you to believe otherwise.

I've also heard the "Heather Locklear pledged Tri Delta but dropped out before initiation rumor," although most of the time she's associated with Chi Omega. (She's neither!)

I have read in "From Here to Fraternity" that Farrah Fawcett (Heather Locklear's long lost twin) was a Tri Delta pledge but not intiaited. Maybe that's the urban legend??

This all makes me laugh...

I'm surprised some sorority somewhere hasn't listed Jackie Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn as members...

Many of the celebrities commonly listed as famous members didn't even graduate from HS, let alone went through Rush. Delta Burke is Greek, I'm remembering Tri-Delt or Chi-O. Courtney Cox attended school up north to avoid the social pressure to join a sorority, being from Birmingham and all--I read this in an interview years ago.

Another very important reason why National Headquarters gives each chapter a list of information suitable for websites--you don't want false information going around!
