“It’s funny because I didn’t even originally read the script. It was called ‘Cheer’ and I thought, ‘What the hell? I’m not doing that!’ I called my agent, who I love, but was like, “Dude, what is going on here? You know I am fighting stereotypes!” I don’t want to be the pretty, preppy girl that most people see me as. Then I sat down and was literally shocked at how good the script was. I really wanted to be Marti, I was immediately attracted to her spirit, her sarcasm and the fact she was this little fighter. But I assumed the studio would want me as Savannah because in the script she’s a blonde, preppy Texas cheerleader. Thankfully they saw me for Marti.”
—Aly Michalka of “Hellcats,” the new CW show based on my book, Cheer!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders, talks about how she was initially skeptical about auditioning for a show about cheerleading. So glad she came around. Make sure to watch the show’s second episode tonight at 9 p.m. (EST) on The CW. It’s on right after “America’s Next Top Model.” [NY Post] Keep reading »
Sometimes nature calls and there’s no bathroom in sight. In that instance, we have no choice but to drop trou and do the did. We don’t think that was the case for Emile Hirsch who was caught pissing into a plant outside of Bootsy Bellows nightclub in West Hollywood on Tuesday night. He seems more surprised than he should be considering he chose to pee in public and he’s a celebrity. You live and you learn.
Emile is hardly the first celeb to have a public urination incident. We’ve rounded up a few more who are infamous for peeing in public. [E! Online]
“My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us. We got married so young: I was 19 and he was 21, so as we got older, we grew apart. I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right. I truly believe there are lessons in it for me to learn. Cultivating strength from rough situations is the most important thing. After going through this, I know I can face anything.”

Happy Hump Day! Today, we’d like to hump Tyler Stokes. Isn’t he pretty? We think he’s pretty. We wonder if he’s wearing pants. Probably not! Tyler is 21 (!), comes from Baton Rouge, Louisiana (I’ve been there, so it’s practically like we’re sleeping together already), and he is either an actor or trying to be an actor. I am sure he is a wonderful actor. The next Brad Pitt, without a doubt. Also, he says: “I work hard but I know how to have a good time.” And I think we all know what that means. Wink-wink, nudge-nudge. Eh, well, a blogger can dream. Keep reading »
