So last night was the series finale of "Hellcats", though obviously it was an unplanned series finale, because the writers ended the episode without knowing if the show would be canceled or not. However, since it has been, I thought I'd take this opportunity to give Desktop Girl of the Week honors to star Ashley Tisdale, since I don't know when she'll be on my radar again.
The former Disney Channel star left her Disney roots -- and her blonde roots -- behind when joining the cast of "Hellcats", playing a much more nuanced character than she had in the past. And while the show wasn't always particularly good, I thought Tisdale did her best with the material she was given. Toward the back half of the season, the stories drifted further and further from cheerleading and more into soap opera madness (which, to be fair, is almost expected from The CW), but Tisdale always seemed to bring her A game.
According to her IMDB page, Tisdale doesn't have much coming down the pipe, an obvious consequence of the fate of "Hellcats". Still, I can't imagine it'll be long before we see her on the screen again.
As always with DGOW, I’ll provide a widescreen (1680x1050) image for downloading. If you want to see past DGOW, then just check the archive album.
