The Hellcats Address The Lack Of Cheerleaders At The Super Bowl


Ashley Tisdale and Aly Michalka of The CW series “Hellcats” were very concerned at yesterday’s revelation that there will be no cheerleaders at this Sunday’s Super Bowl game for the first time in 45 years, since neither the Green Bay Packers nor the Pittsburgh Steelers have them.

Quotable: Aly Michalka Was Initially Skeptical About Auditioning For “Hellcats”

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 »
