The best AGD urban legend I've heard of was Madonna. I know she went to college in Michigan for a while, but I know she wasn't initiated!

There are also rumors about Carly Simon and Peri Gilpin being Alpha Gams, but I'm sure there's no truth in that.

Edited to add: Our IHQ website has a special section on Accomplished Alpha Gams. I was the webmistress for my collegiate website and all the information I included was based on that.

Actually, I just read that Delta Burke never went to college. She won Miss Florida and then directly moved onto show business.

I was thinking the same thing! I saw that Bette Midler was a 'sister' on a chapter website, but she has not been claimed by a specific chapter or International.

I'll be a famous D Phi E if I am selected to go on Jeopardy. (fingers crossed)


I heard that Farah Fawcett was in a sorority in college in Texas. The story was that she was so beautiful that the men lined up on fraternity row to ask her out. I wouldn't be surprised if that were true. I heard that it was Tri Delta. It might be an urban myth though.

I remember seeing on E!'s Celebrity Profile that she did indeed initiate into Tri Delta. They even showed a picture of the house.

Farrah was definitely associated w/ Tri Delta, as far as I know she initiated but she did leave school before she graduated to go to Hollywood.

Delta Burke is definitely not a Chi O. I've also seen a lot of chapter websites claiming Cybil Sheppard and Shelly Long? Never seen any proof of that from Nationals...

Maybe that's where I saw it.

I just remember wishing that men had lined up in college to ask me out on dates.

Some chapter sites for Pi Phi claim she's a member.

Farrah was indeed a Tri-Delt at UTexas, my alma mater, back before ΔΔΔ got their new house on West Campus. She was initiated, was voted one of the "10 Most Beautiful Women On Campus" - and left UT for Hollywood before graduating.

Cindy Crawford did go to Northwestern. And the Northwestern PiPhi's don't even list her on their own page.

It's possible it's because she's not an alum - because she never graduated.

ADPi celebs?

I read one place that Supreme Court judge Sandra Day O'Connor was an ADPi, but that is the only time I've seen that listed...I know she's not a movie star or anything, but that would be pretty imp't., especially since she was one of the first(or first) female Supreme Court judges. I know some of the nationals sites have famous alumnae listings, why not all of them?
Kate

Oh, btw, Molly Sims was Tri-Delta at my school, and Amy Grant was a Theta. I'm not exactly sure if Molly graduated, though...
Also, I've also heard that Susan Lucci was a PiPhi.

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
Mary Margaret Truman was indeed a Pi Phi--a member of the now-defunct DC Alpha chapter! There have been several references to her in the Arrow and there was a song that I've heard several chapters sing about her--

Mary Margaret Truman was the daughter of the Prez!
She lives up in the White House with her father, Harry S!
But her ******* I forget this line, it rhymed with the next one*,
She's a Pi Beta Phiiiii,
In 1952 when good ol' Harry got the shoe,
Mary Margaret Truman didn't know just what to do!
She went back to Missouri to open a brewery
And drink to the Pi Beta Phi! MORE BEER!!!!

Actually, I thought Jenny McCarthy went to Southern Illinois for a year or two. I could be wrong, though.
