Yup: Tina Turner Was Rep. Craig Fitzhugh's Babysitter

Thats one heckuva babysitter.
  • That's one heckuva babysitter.
Worldwide superstar diva Tina Turner, who married her longtime partner Erwin Bach Wednesday in Switzerland, was state House Minority Leader Craig Fitzhugh's babysitter. It's true. And Fitzhugh elaborated on this incredible fact in an exclusive statement to Pith:

"When I was 3 or 4 years old, we had a neighbor two doors down in Ripley named Connie Henderson. A very nice young lady named Anna Mae Bullock worked for that family. Of course, Anna Mae Bullock later changed her name and became Tina Turner. I don't remember a whole lot about her. She was about 10 years my senior and took care of all the neighborhood kids when we played over at the Henderson's house. I will say though, that she did name her oldest son Craig, so maybe she remembered me fondly. I doubt it, but one can always dream!"
