Or formerly known as... or is he again... I don't know.

Prince lived in Minneapolis. He and my dad went to the same high school. Central. A few years apart, though.

Ashton Kutcher went to my high school. Cedar Rapids Washington.

Quite a few people were born/live in the city I was born in, San Diego. One that comes to mind is Robert Hays, from the movie "Airplane."

Vista, California is where I consider home. The only celebrity I know from Vista is Gary Puckett, from Gary Puckett and the Union Gap. The Official Gary Puckett Union Gap Website Gary Puckett Bio. He lives in Florida now.

Pageland, South Carolina, where I live now, is home to Brooklyn Dodger player Van Lingle Mungo. Van Lingle Mungo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia He was known as much for his exploits off the field as on. One of the main streets in Pageland is Van Lingle Mungo Blvd.

Marshville, North Carolina is not where I live, but where I go to church and shop. It is the birthplace of Randy Travis.

I lived a year in Independence, Missouri, home to President Harry S. Truman.

I know it said one at a time. I hope you don't mind I listed them all together, in the interest of time and space.

Batman & Mr. Mom - Michael Keaton!

Pittsburgh, PA (Coraopolis really)

The first celeb I ever served at the hotel I worked in. I "freaked" when I made an ID and asked my friend to take the table because I couldn't handle it!! Duh

OMG! It's Batman!

Being from this area, there are a lot - here are a couple from me -
Sis went to school with Kathy Ireland. There were way too many famous folks when I lived in SB, but so many had moved there after they'd gotten their props. Dad built many homes for them.
From where I live now, within 20 miles or so, Julia Childs was born. Now THAT's a celeb!

Billy Joel hasa few houses on the Island. ( long island).He grew up one town over from where I grew up.
I remember when I was a kid, riding my bike in front of his house, hoping he would come out, we'd become friends, let me write with him, and Id become rich and famous. Problem was, he moved from that house 1 year earlier . Im surprised the current owners didnt call the cops

Ralph Maccio ( The Karate Kid) Lives a a town over. Our kids were in the same school when younger, and attended a few B-day parties together.

Many Others on the east end/ Hamptons ( many seasonal though) But I know Diana Ross, Paul Simon, Christie Brinkley, Howard Stern, Steven Spielberg....the list goes on
