- 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!"
