Why are we doing this, OP?

I guess we can't even include the pope

(I'm assuming, based on their faux surnames and their appearance.)
|by Anonymous||reply 5||12/04/2012|
OP managed to include pretty much all the ugly ones. I guess the pretty ones never get to be famous. They are just used for their bodies and tossed aside like spoiled produce!

Paula Prentiss was half Sicilian.
Her actual last name was Ragusa and she changed it when she was discovered at Northwestern University by a talent scout who wanted new contract players. This same talent scout cast her in "Where The Boys Are."
Her stage name stems from the movie "Nora Prentiss."

Actually I was going to say no cares about wops, dagos or guineas but I thought that might be a tad rude.

Prince (the musician) had an African-American father and an Italian-American mother.

So he said, R26. That's come into doubt.
|by Anonymous||reply 27||12/04/2012|
Actually, that's not true, R26. He claimed that when he was trying to cross over to white audiences. He cast a black man and Greek woman as his parents in Purple Rain. However, his parents were both light-skinned blacks. He later embraced his "blackness" around the same time he became a Jehovah's Witness.
I'm a long-time follower of Prince and his lies and hypocrisy. I used to think he was the sexiest thing ever when he was younger, but he his is a horrid human being.

At one point Prince claimed to be half Mexican. I always felt he had alot of self hate issues.

Italian-Americans are much like Irish-Americans in that Italian-Americans - in the last 50 years or so at least - have been much more impressive than plain old Italians.
