Many celebrities are drawn to the areas in which most of us live, the South Jersey and Philadelphia region. Perhaps it’s the nearby city life or the comfort of the Jersey shore being so close to many homes. Whatever the reason might be, they live here and that’s awesome!
South Jersey is home to many celebrities. Either they grew up here once or reside in beautiful South Jersey today. Kelly Ripa is one of the many celebrities who were born in South Jersey. A very popular home amongst many South Jersians is the house of Terrell Owens located in Moorestown, NJ. It’s no surprise why Owens has chosen a home in Moorestown, NJ, not only is it close to his Philadelphia football team, but it was also recently named by Money magazine, the best place to live in America.
Students at Cabrini feel it is a great opportunity to live nearby many celebrities. Matt Triboletti, a sophomore exercise science major, said, “I think it’s cool how these celebrities live so close to my house.”
Boris Smojver, a senior English and communications major, said, “Most celebrities in South Jersey live in Moorestown and Marlton, NJ.”
Owens lives in luxury in a white mansion-like home. Although Owens’ home is not gated off, another Moorestown resident’s home is. The home of Donovan McNabb is not as welcoming to visitors as Owens is, but who could blame him. Not only is McNabb’s house extremely easy to locate, it’s also a residence many people drive past a lot, just because it’s Donovan McNabb’s house.
What brings many celebrities to our area may be the proximity of many cities and just the atmosphere of living in the north east in general. Jenna Grabowski, a sophomore exercise science and health promotion major, said, “Celebrities probably live in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas because it is near a lot of major cities. Living in this region gives people all the aspects of a perfect community and suburbia by being close to everything.”
