Holly Robinson Peete

Born in the neighborhood of Mount Airy which had "every nationality, every race, like the UN," Peete moved to Hollywood at a young age to pursue acting. Still, the Hangin' With Mr. Cooper star became the ultimate cheerleader for her hometown when she married Eagles quarterback Rodney Peete. "Nothing like hometown love," she says.
