Default Stars living in Charlotte area.

I have heard from folks that alot of movie, sports, and recording stars now live in the greater Charlotte area. Anyone know which areas without giving addreses (that would be a no no) ? I have heard Fantashia from American Idol, basketball stars, and even Stephanee Mills from the Wiz fame live in the area. I would imagine they live in places like Ballentine Country Club and The Palisades.

Jeff Gordon, Bob Johnson. A few former NFL players (Frank Reich, Ted Washington and another former Buffalo Bill who has a really long last name). There are a few others, but I cannot think of them.

It happens to be a very very nice place........................ I have been there many times and I think is one of the most unique places to live in South Charlotte. But do not venture into this 'Plantation" at night............ You will never be able to get out...... LOL

Thats funny but scary lolol. As a Black American I take names like plantation serious. Of course I know there are not any cotton fields, etc. But if this is the site of an old plantation, I would be scared at night as the spirits might often roam the community lololol.

Charlotte is supposed to be a popular place for professional athletes to relocate; I have no idea why. But it is so much so, that one of the Carolina Panthers, Mike Rucker, started a Real Estate firm that has a division entirely dedicated to helping pro athletes relocate to the area.

Here’s the link: Vision Group - Charlotte North Carolina Home for Sale (http://www.vgrusa.com/relocation.htm - broken link)

And you’re right about all those other people who live here too. My understanding is several do what Stephanie Mills did. She lived here for a while (came because of marriage first), left, but then she “quietly” moved back. I hear there are several other celebs who “quietly” have homes here too. I have friends who live near Concord Mills mall who swear Randy Moss has a home in their neighborhood.

I used to see LL Cool J in SE Charlotte/Pineville when he had a house here.
Fantasia bought a house in the Piper Glen area.
I babysat twice for Rick Flair.
Tammy Faye is fighting her cancer in the Matthews area.
Tons of racecar drivers and obviously NFL and NBA players for our local teams.

That's all off the top of my head....there are more, I'll post if I remember them....
