Around the Town: Which celebrity wedding crasher would you prefer?

CROSSVILLE — You are getting married and someone famous crashes your wedding. Who would you want it to be? According to this week’s People Magazine, at least five couples were the “victims” of wedding crashers. The five famous crashers were actor John Travolta; former President Bill Clinton; Queen Elizabeth II, who greeted newlyweds at the town hall in Manchester, England; basketball great Lebron James, who crashed a wedding in Miami; and late night talk show host Conan O’Brien, who surfaced at a wedding in Atlanta. All five celebs posed for pictures with the newlyweds.

I asked a few people which celebrity they would most like to meet or have crash their wedding. Their responses ranged from actors to ball players to evangelists.

1. Tanner — Chris Bosh

2. Meg L. — Adam Levine

3. Hannah — Johnny Depp

4. Meg S. — Channing Tatum

5. Ricky — Elvis

6. Lynn — Blake Shelton

7. Tom — Clint Eastwood

8. Shane — Will Smith

9. Lorna — Cody Simpson

10.  Rachel — Josh Hutcherson

11.  Jake — Michael Jordan

12.  Robert — Daniel Tosh

13.  Nathan — Chris Paul

14.  Debbie — Chuck Norris

15.  Brittni — Chuck Norris

16.  Rayce — Freddie Freeman

Interesting list, don’t you think? I never would have expected Chuck Norris to garner two spots even. Though if I had asked my husband, he would probably say either Chuck Norris or newswoman Amy Robach. As for me? If I could meet a celebrity or celebrities, I would choose either Jennifer Aniston or Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Speaking of celebrities, Aniston’s former husband, Brad Pitt, announced recently he thinks he suffers from prosopagnosia or “facial blindness.” This rare condition prevents sufferers from recognizing people’s faces. Ironic, considering he has been linked to several of the prettiest women in Hollywood: Gwyneth Paltrow, Aniston and fiancé Angelina Jolie.


If you want to talk real heroes, then read this: Monday, June 24, Marine Sergeant Christopher Hancock will be returning to Crossville. Sergeant Hancock, son of City Police Officer J.C. Hancock, lost both of his legs to an improvised explosive device during a combat mission in June 2011. His plane is scheduled to land at 4 p.m. at Crossville Municipal Airport, and friends and family want a Welcome Home Celebration for him. Local dignitaries and the community band will be there to assist in the celebration. All locals are invited and encouraged to welcome this real life hero home.


There are only a few more days to register for the Visually Impaired Support Group of Cumberland County Golf Tournament. It will be held at Lake Tansi Golf course Saturday, June 22, and features a shotgun start, scramble foursome, prizes and dinner. Call Joyce Lignar at 788-6955 for more information and registration fees.

  • AROUND THE TOWN: The Easter egg hunt that never was

    The Easter Bunny should be able to deliver his baskets in pretty nice weather this weekend. The Good Friday and Easter holiday weekend should feature much warmer temperatures than we had earlier this week when snow showers fell on Cumberland County. Cumberland County students were released Tuesday for spring break, but their last day of school for the week found snow and ice falling from the sky and temperatures in the 20s. Students will return to class on Monday.

  • PLATEAU GARDENING: Cool-season lawn grass fertilization and soil tests

    Recently, I got an inquiry about the right timing for homeowners who want to fertilize a cool-season lawn which has bare spots that need over-seeding. An email from a new resident in the Crossville area asked how to take a soil sample and where to have it tested. Since problems with the pH or fertility of the soil beneath can result in chronically thin grass with persistent bare places up top, testing the soil then correcting pH and fertility to match plant needs can be an important first step in maintaining your lawn.
