Are you related to a celebrity?

Sarah Jessica ParkerAre you related to a celebrity? Well, you may find out soon! In a new genealogical documentary series, Who Do You Think You Are? Hollywood stars, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Lisa Kudrow and Susan Sarandon will attempt to find long lost relatives. Kudrow, who is also the show’s executive producer, will be the first celeb (amongst many to still be announced) to dig up the dirt on her family tree. “This show personalizes history and turns it into a gripping narrative,” Kudrow said. “The most striking thing about the show is the realization of how connected we all are.” The show, based on the popular BBC version, plans to take the audience back into world history to expose how the lives of everyone’s collective ancestors’ have shaped today’s world.  The documentary premieres April 20 at 8 p.m. EST.

    Sounds like another way to attract more stalkers to me! People don’t always like and may not be able to take back what they find!!!

    Ummmm…. gee sounds familiar – exactly like the CBC version of the same name…

    my mother is a genealogy nut and she’ll probably watch it. after some digging, she actually found out that her father was a 5th cousin to Gene Roddenberry, which most of the family thinks is pretty cool since we’ve all watched star trek for years 🙂

    Sandie, that is very interesting. A good friend of mine has done a thorough search on her Family Tree and I find it fascinating, has prompted me to be curious about my own and may lok into one day.

    Have to say though this won’t be on my viewing list, not into Reality T.v. at all…

    while I’m at it I’ll “look” into it too ha ha…

    All you will find is a bunch of monkeys

    are you the same Anonymous in the previous Disney post who doesn’t care? So, would you be Anonymous number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10…..

    shall I tell the monkeys to bring you a banana?

  8. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 7:10 PM

    That IS funny…although I, personally, would have used a much more ‘appropriate’ term than “monkeys”…but then, that’s what makes me NANCY!!

  9. Jo-Anne. • January 31, 2009 @ 7:19 PM

    and that’s why your posts are constantly deleted…

  10. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 7:23 PM

    No, my posts are not “constantly deleted”….just the ones telling you off!! LOL

  11. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 7:25 PM

    But, at least you are understanding what I’m saying. 😛

  12. Jo-Anne. • January 31, 2009 @ 7:35 PM

    well, excuse me, but the last time I told someone off I was adult enough not to throw in a pile of vulgar swear words and refer to them as a mutt.

    as always, only the most mature remarks from you.

    yes, I understood your meaning, no doubt there. Pat yourself on the back and remind me again what an exemplary person you are.

  13. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 7:54 PM

    I don’t have to remind you or get your approval for anything! Like I’ve said time and time again, I could care less. YOU LIED! Flat out – you lied…check it out Dec 17 Madonna’s ex article. Where is the “fat comment” you said I made? Yes, I did call you a “mutt” and told you to go “fetch” the comment. You didn’t like that? You cried to Tribute ONCE AGAIN to delete it? Then maybe you should learn to close your mouth and stop lying about people!! That’s life! Get over it OR prove you’re not lying.

  14. anon • January 31, 2009 @ 8:04 PM

    unreal! no matter what the story is, jo-anne and nancy have to start an argument in the comments section. I, for one, am getting really tired of seeing their childish behaviour. I could care less what either of you called the other, GET OVER YOURSELVES! Do you think any of the rest of us care?

    Hard to believe that the people who run this site haven’t banned you both

  15. Nancy • January 31, 2009 @ 8:08 PM

    Well I don’t really care if you care anon! I don’t put up with being lied about…do you?

  16. anon • January 31, 2009 @ 8:13 PM

    no i don’t like being lied about, but i also don’t jump all over people like some on here seem to do. someone makes a comment and SOME people like to jump all over them, make fun of them, etc. you 2 aren’t the only ones who do it, but your names seem to pop up alot

  17. Janine • January 31, 2009 @ 8:44 PM

    I’d rather be related to a vampire than a celebrity.

  18. Anonymous • January 31, 2009 @ 9:11 PM

    sure send me a banana i’m sure you’d have lots to spare monkey

  19. oh lord. • February 27, 2009 @ 3:59 PM
