Like douthit said, if it were true, I hope no one would ever claim him! That's just embarrassing to your letters.

I believe that she is considered famous because she helped him create at least a few, if not several of the muppet characters.

Didn't she actually graduate from GWU though? But, still, I have never read about her being greek.

Lest we forget, she came from a social class---that for whom, sorority membership was an unneeded choice. Women of her social standing did not need the social or business connections that came with sorority membership, as those had been taken care generations before. Besides, in the biographies I have read of her, none has included sorority membership, and it's not mentioned on the Phi Mu site.

That Phi Mu chapter claims she pledged...but that's about the only thing on the internet that I could find. I truly think if she had, Phi Mu would have made her an honorary member, or advertised on their national site that she was a member.

I'm sure that Jackie Kennedy did pledge. However, I doubt that Jacqueline Bouvier (who then married John F Kennedy) did. It's all in how you say it people....

You just read my mind. I have many family members with the last name Kennedy, but not the same family.

She didn't graduate from Vassar, but from George Washington University as KillarneyRose mentioned.

Her son, John Kennedy, Jr. was Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity at Brown. As the son of a U.S. President, he most certainly didn't need the social or business connections that you mentioned. Sometimes people just want friends.

Yes, I know he was a Phi Psi at Brown...the composite resides just down the hall from me. It's funny and his hair is big. Like, huge. Brown's Greek system, because it is so flexible, tends to attract the children of the super-rich. John D. Rockefeller Jr. was also a fraternity man here.

Thanks for the clarification, though! My point is that before people begin to add celebrities to their roll of brothers and sisters, some fact-checking should be done.

There is a whole thread on the Ron Jeremy thing in the TKE forum. A chapter out in california (don't feel like looking to find out exactly which one) 'initiated' him. From what has been said I think their HQ didn't accept the application for his membership, but I'll wait for a TKE in the know to confirm or deny that fact.

Yes a chapter tried to make him an honorary, but IHQ said heck no. But many guys like to consider him one still, and apparently if u ask Ron he will tell u he was one to.

Thanks for the confirmation zntke711. I knew he was 'supposedly' a TKE. The guys at GMU use it in their rush flyers to attract pnm's.

isn't it possible that some celebrities don't want to be associated with their collegiate glo? there are plenty of people who drop off the planet after graduation....and i would guess that the national group needs to get some sort of permission to post thier names and bios on the national site. but this is just a guess.

He probably says he is one because, from what I remember from the previous thread about him, he was actually initiated by the San Diego State chapter prior to HQ denying membership.

Yah I figured as much he knows the whole deal since he has been through it all. I am not suprized the chapter waited til after the intiation to send it in. I know in most case chapters let IHQ know before they initiate an honorary member. I heard he is still close to the chapter and even donates money to them occasionally. But he has to know he isn't a recognized member since he never got a TKE badge.
