There are a few universal truths in my life, and one of them is that if a hot girl puts on a cheerleading outfit, she's at least 72% hotter. It's scientific fact*.
So obviously this year I'm all about "Hellcats", a new show on The CW. Sure, I'm still fully in the "Cheerleading is not a sport" camp, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable, particularly in primetime soap opera fiction terms. There's a new episode tonight, which means it's the perfect time to make Alyson "Aly" Michalka the Desktop Girl of the Week.
Aly came to fame as one half of the Disney-promoted sister duo Aly and AJ (now know as 78violet), and honestly didn't hit my radar until this summer (despite my incongruous love for teen pop music, I tend to stay far away from anything post-Britney Disney related). But, to put it simply, she's hot, and "Hellcats" isn't a bad watch. Michalka was also in the Emma Stone/Amanda Bynes project "Easy A", which somehow I still haven't seen, despite it now starring multiple Desktop Girls of the Week.
Michalka's first post-"Hellcats" project is a movie called "The Roommate", which also stars Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester, which means I'm definitely going to see that, regardless of how bad it is
