Famous Former Sorority Girls

Celebrity Sorority Girls

There is always one girl in every house who, for whatever reason, will be famous. Maybe she’s studying biochemical engineering. Maybe her aspirations of fame and fortune are more on par with bouncing her girls around on YouTube and hoping Victoria’s Secret will finally notice (I’m looking at you, Kate Upton). The fact of the matter is that you know you’ll see her smug mug in the media one day, and when you do, you’ll probably be surprised by how she got there.

To use the clichés that we sorority girls bitch about outwardly–but secretly cultivate and joke about amongst ourselves–each house is usually known for something. The girls with their dads’ AmEx black cards and brand new Bimmers are always lured to PQR house. The bookworms are in LMN. The slutty girls who tend to wind up in accounting, still wearing last night’s mascara, reeking of Red Bull and shame, are in another equally gossip-worthy house with a particular reputation among campus Greeks.

Since I’m older and wiser than you, I’m here to tell you that those stereotypes don’t always pan out. To prove it, take a look at this list of former sorority girls (via the always reliable Buzzfeed) who turned into (mostly) functioning adults. But since sometimes those reputations are hard to shake, I’ll look away while you pass judgement on whether their houses’ reputations stuck with them in spotlight.
