Today's list is celebrating my home state of Georgia. I present with you my Top 10 Fave Celebs from Georgia! (The "Still Currently Alive" edition)
9. Julia Roberts - from Smyrna (suburb NW of Atlanta). How can you not love the original Pretty Woman?
8. OutKast - based in East Point (south Atlanta). Six Grammy Awards and the reason I sing about being "so Fresh and so clean" when I get out of the shower
7. Jeff Foxworthy - from Hapeville (Atlanta's southside, near East Point), and attended Georgia Tech. I grew up on "You might be a redneck" jokes. I don't think I am one though.
6. Alton Brown - current Marietta (another ATL suburb!) resident and holds a degree in Drama from UGA. I love his "Good Eats" show; it takes quite the talent to make the science of eating entertaining!
5. Ty Pennington - from Marietta. Hottest carpenter on television, hands down . . . and I may get the chance to meet him in a few weeks as I will be volunteering on the build for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition when it comes to Pensacola!
4. Herschel Walker - from Wrightsville (somewhere kinda in the middle?). Heisman Trophy winner who helped my beloved Georgia Bulldogs win a national championship (over B's Notre Dame) in 1980, then went on to a pretty decent pro career.
3. Ryan Seacrest - from Dunwoody (used to be part of Atlanta, became its own city in 2008), attended the same UGA Journalism School that I did (but he left before the degree to make it big). Say what you want about his hair or sexuality, but this guy is one of the hardest-working in Hollywood.
2. Teresa Edwards - from Cairo (in the SW corner of the state, and locals pronounce it KAY-roh). One of the best female basketball players of all time; she attended my beloved UGA (where her #5 is now retired) and played in FIVE Olympics!
1. S. Truett Cathy - from Eatonton (sorta between Atlanta and Augusta). Founder of Chick-Fil-A, my first job and still one of my favorite places to eat! And I actually LOVE that they're closed on Sundays; it takes quite a bit of character to stick to your Christian values like that while simultaneously embracing the capitalistic "American Dream."
Some Honorable mentions: Butch Walker, Trisha Yearwood, and Paula Deen
Who's your favorite Georgia celeb?
