Famous relative? Dish by

With the recent revelation from weather blogger/City Councilor Greg Boe that he's related to Myron Floren, the famous accordianist (and yes, there is such a thing), I'm curious, is there anyone else out there related to someone famous?

If so, please tell us about it. And remember, our idea of famous has a low threshold.

Total news flash! I had no idea! My friends tried really hard to get me to watch “You’re Cut Off” but I never got the chance. This clip makes me really want to start watching.

Ummm hello – Michelle Williams also appeared on VH1’s “You’re Cut Off” to try to instill the spirit of volunteerism in the pampered princesses. Here’s a clip: (skip past the stiletto bikini blast to the 4:00 minute mark)

This is a stretch, but Michelle Williams (of Destiny’s Child, not to be confused with Jen Lindley of “Dawson’s Creek”) is my cousin. She was one of the replacement Destiny’s Child members after two of the original members left. She sang on the group’s hit “Survivor,” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_RVId9OkgI (she’s the one who isn’t Beyonce and doesn’t have short hair).
I’m not even going to pretend that we’re close. I’ve only met Michelle once (she’s from Rockford, Ill. and my family often visits my aunt who lives there, this aunt is also Michelle’s aunt). But she was really nice and had a lovely home.
The most interesting part, I think, of this post is that I often forget that there was a time before Beyonce was BEYONCE/Mrs. Jay-Z/biggest female music superstar of her generation. She used to just be a blonde girl in a singing group. How times have changed…Who would’ve guessed?

I, too, rocked the sunhat/flower look for awhile. My family hated it and suddenly I couldn’t find that hat anymore. Jerks.

Jenna Von Oy was so awesome

Jenna Von Oy was so awesome as Six. She was also in a lot of really cheesy and fantastic NBC movies of the week. More importantly, I still own a denim hat with a giant sunflower on the front that I got when I was about seven years old. I asked for the hat because I got all of my fashion tips from “Blossom,” and to this day few things make me happier than the show’s opening credits: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mg7VHkzm0Aw&feature=related

Now the Wozniak family reunion would be a fun one to attend. I imagine “The Woz” sends a Lear Jet to pick up everyone. (Or maybe they just teleconference on their computers.)

OK, stay with me on this …..
My mom’s first cousin’s husband is a second cousin to Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple computer.
OK, so it’s a stretch, but it’s all I got …..

Robert Vaughn, TV star mostly known from the hit 60’s series "Man from Uncle’, is my third or fourth cousin, as he was my grandmother’s first cousin.
He lived in Minneapolis with my great grandmother.

My uncle (by marriage) is related to Jenna Von Oy from “Blossom” fame. She played Mayim Bialik’s best friend Six. I was a fan of the show when I learned about the connection and wrote her a letter that resulted in a signed photo from the cast. Made my teenage day at the time. Here’s a video refresher:
