Famous Metairie People

There are many celebrities born all over the world, some come from the United States, some come from Louisiana, and some are even born in Metairie, La.

Here’s a short list of some of the most known and their accomplishments:

Ellen DeGeneres, TV Talkshow Host, was born in Metairie. Before Ellen got famous, she was a house painter, bartender, and a waitress at a TGI Friday’s. Wound’t it have been hilarious to have Ellen as your waitress?

Madison Wolfe, Movie actress, is from the boot. She’s been in loads of feature films and that great show True Detective. Little do people know, she also made an appearance in Scream.

Ashley Scott, Tv Actress, was born right here in Metairie, and had a role in the movies Walking Tall and Into the Blue. Before she touched stardom, Ashley was #25 on the Maxim Top 100 list in 2005, the year of Hurricane Katrina.

Laron Landry, Football Player, Safety out of LSU, Geaux Tigers!, and drafted by the Washington Redskins, Landry crushed Reggie Bush in 2012 when Bush was with the Dolphins. Great hit! But we’ll never forget what Reggie did while he was a New Orleans Saint, Who Dat!

Billy Kennedy, Basketball Coach, he was born in Metairie, and later became the head coach of the team from Texas A&M. Before that, he was an assistant coach for eight teams. Way to stick in there to live your dream.

Donte Jackson, this cornerback for LSU was born in Metairie. He didn’t even want to play football, just was hoping to run track for the Tigers.

Tony Raines, Reality Star, funny words to see together. I’m my own reality star, haha. Either way, this guy got famous for being on a TV show called Real World: Skeletons and falling in love with a girl wow two of his ex-girlfriends were on the show.

Shane Raines, another Reality Star, and the brother of the guy mentioned above. He’s from Metairie and was also on a reality tv show. He might work as a cosmetologist, at least that’s what he did before the show.

Carlos Marcello, American Gangster born in Metairie. Boss of a New Orleans crime familyuntil the late 1980s, people suspect that Marcello masterminded the 1963 assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy.

Sean Gares, eSports Athlete, is a professional video game player in the Counter Strike Arena. He has a Twitch channel with 190,000 followers and a pet dog. I wonder if he can be a pro gamer from his hometown of Metairie, Louisiana.

Candice Stewart, another Reality Star from Metairie. Wow! That’s three Reality Stars. We must really be tuned into reality here in Southeast Louisiana. Candice was on Big Brother, graduated from Xavier University, and was a cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints.

That’s enough. This isn’t a complete list of people that were born in Metairie, Louisiana, that later became famous. I’m sure there’s more actors and actresses, there might even be an eSports athlete, how cool is that!
