Celebrities Haunted by Ghosts

We all love to follow celebrities. We also love to hear about them being haunted. 
We need to ask ourselves...Why is that? 

 The majority of people are curious as to what the uber famous are up to these days and when you throw in a ghost story or two it makes the celeb-stalking much more interesting. Perhaps we love to hear celebrity ghost stories because it makes them appear to be more "human" to us. Showing signs of weakness and vulnerability is appealing to us as regular folk. Do people believe celebrities more when they speak about ghosts or are we just expecting to be entertained by their story? There are many reports of celebrities coming out of the ghostly closet per-say, but are they too falling for the haunting hype that's now associated within the paranormal community? 

The popular TV show "Celebrity Ghost Stories on the Biography Channel is still going strong. The show has highlighted stars from Marylin Manson to Corey Feldman. We all tune in to see these celebs talk about their fears but would we give the same attention to a random person on the street? Probably not. No matter what, it is still fun to watch celebrities show signs of being "real" compared to the glamorized individuals we are accustomed too. 

Just for fun here is a short list of Celebrities and links to their personal ghost stories.

Ghost Sighting- Your Ghost Stories

Submitted Story from Oklahoma

When I was 14, (I am now 37), I was riding home from church with a friend (who was 16) in his dad's small 1987 Ford Ranger truck.  The church that we attended is known as the Country Tabernacle PCG, located on Cheek Road in Lone Grove, OK.  This road runs South, perpendicular to Highway 70 just a couple of miles west of town.  The night was slightly foggy and misty, but visibility wasn't compromised.  We left the church as soon as it was over that Sunday night around 8:00pm.  The church is 7 miles South of Highway 70.  We were traveling north towards my home across town.  
We were both chatting and listening to the radio, but my friend was a very responsible driver and wasn't that distracted.  As we came to the intersection with the highway, there were no other cars or pedestrians around.  I made a mental note of how little traffic there was on the highway and dismissed it as due to the fact that it was a rainy Sunday night.  We made a rolling stop at the stop sign and was in mid-right turn when for some unknown reason, I was compelled to look out the back window over my left shoulder.  What I saw when I looked out the window was a human figure walking northbound across the highway.  I only saw the profile and back of the figure for the few seconds that I viewed it.  It was tall and skinny, wearing a khaki trench coat, cinched tight around the waist.  The hands were shoved into the coat pockets, shoulders hunched.  The head was looking at the ground and had a gray fedora (gangster/Indiana Jones style hat) pulled down over the eyes.  I saw no recognizable features of the face.  Gray slacks were noticeable at the bottom of the calf-length coat.  I did not notice any feet.  The figure's legs were moving but its motion was more of a smooth glide.  It covered the ground very quickly.  I thought it strange and asked my friend if he saw it, for I thought at first that he had almost run over a pedestrian.  He looked in his mirrors and said no.  It was then that I realized that it wasn't humanly possible for a physical being to be there.  For it to have been where I saw it when I did, the figure would have had to be walking right behind the truck at the same speed as the truck and then continue moving northbound as we turned eastbound.  We were probably going over 5 mph at the time and the figure looked as if it was just traveling at a leisurely pace.  A normal person would have had to be jogging at least to make that time and then they would have had to run right through the bed of the truck to be where they were when I saw them.  I have gone over the physics of this many times in my head and I still come up with the same conclusion.  It could not have been a physical person.  Even if it was, why did I not see any feet when I saw enough to get such an accurate description of everything else?  About 9 years ago I was telling this story to the girlfriend of another friend of mine and she freaked out.  This is what she said.  When she was in high school, a story circulated that if you went to that intersection and waited in your car, the figure (dressed exactly as I saw) would come and knock on your window.  If you rolled your window down, it would ask you a question, (I can't for the life of me remember the question).  If you answered it the apparition would disappear.  Supposedly the police got wind of this and went to check out who was pranking people.  A couple of officers waited in their patrol car at the intersection.  Right on cue the figure appeared, knocked, the officers rolled the window down and answered the question.  
The figure disappeared and the officers sped back to town with lights and sirens blaring.  Whether or not this happened, or it is a legend, I don't know.  But I know what I saw that night when I was 14.  And I will never forget it. - By : Kelly McDaniels

Legend of Elmer McCurdy

The man’s name may not be familiar, but his visage left an impression on countless youth throughout his five-decade-long career as an urban legend incarnate.
Elmer McCurdy was shot dead by a sheriff’s posse on the Oklahoma-Kansas border in 1911 for his involvement in a train robbery in which the total take was $46 and two jugs of whiskey. Generally regarded as a drunken failure of a man, it’s no small wonder that his body went unclaimed.
During this interval, the local coroner charged local gawkers five cents to view the preserved corpse. Visitors were required to slip the nickel through the dead man’s parted lips, though it’s best left to the imagination how these coins were retrieved.
For the first few years, McCurdy spent his afterlife on his feet, propped in the corner, until one day he was claimed by two carnies posing as his brothers. Fast forward to 1976: A crew for the television show The Six Million Dollar Man was setting up shop in a Long Beach, California funhouse when a crew member accidentally detached the arm of a hanging man prop, revealing mummified human bone.

McCurdy’s history was unraveled piece-by-piece, slowly revealing how he was passed among freak shows, carnivals, and haunted houses for over five decades until his true origin was forgotten. His owners at the Nu-Pike Amusement Park genuinely believed him to be a dummy.
Rumor has it that when “The Funhouse Mummy” was finally laid to rest in Guthrie, Oklahoma, concrete was poured on top of his casket, preventing further profit being made from dear old Elmer McCurdy.  -


Would you buy a Ouija Board Coffee table?

So it seems that even today people are superstitious when it comes to Ouija boards. They sell them at Toys-r-Us for God's sake...just feet away from the infant car seats! Ouija boards have been a controversial subject for many years now. Most people fear them. A lot of people have their own personal story as to why they "would never touch one again!" No matter what, the Ouija board is still taboo this day and age. Is it the board itself? Is it about the intentions of the operators? Are they just linked to pure hellish evil? No matter what you think or how you feel about Ouija boards, we would like to know about it!

Recently I posted comment on our facebook page asking, "Would you have a Ouija Board coffee table in your home?" the feedback was intense. Most people had no problem with it, stating "It's just a table." While other people decided to share their personal stories of horror. A few people have never touched a Ouija board and never plan too do so. So, what are your thoughts?
