Professional wrestling’s newest Knockout is a former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader

Get to know TNA’s newest Knockout, Rebel of The Menagerie

If you’ve been following along with the story of Knux and his crazy carnival family on TNA Impact Wrestling [click here if you have no idea what this is referring to], you’ve already met Rebel. The poor girl thought she was reuniting with her long-lost man to chase his dream of being a pro wrestler (while making enough money to save the family business – a roadside carnival), when she finds out that the big lunk also plans to bring along Crazzy Steve (who is crazy) and The freakin’ Freak.

Many of us wanted to know more about this fire-twirling Tanea who will be showing up next Thursday night, and thanks to the dirt screens, now we know.

Tanea Brooks is a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader [1998-2001], and covergirl for their bestselling calendar, from Owasso, Oklahoma. She is also the country music equivalent of a video vixen, having appeared in music videos for Trace Adkins (“Honkey Tonk Badonkadonk”) and Brooks and Dunn (“Play Something County”).

A member of the performance troupe Purrfect Angelz, she met fellow Angel Christy Hemme there. Hemme, who has recently been promoted to TNA Creative, put in a good word for Brooks and she moved to Louisville, Kentucky and trained at Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW) when TNA still had a relationship with them.

No word on how long she was in OVW, or how that training went. And, in fairness, there’s no guarantee that she will serve as much more than a manager/valet for the new carnival-themed stable.

Student Hopes to Join the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders

Dancer hopes her hard work pays off in efforts to become a member of the professional cheerleading team

By Hannah Johannes and Taylor Williams

When the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders take the field in the fall, a TCU student hopes to be among them.

Joining the squad is a longtime dream of Courtney Johnson, a first-year strategic communication major.

“I see DCC as a sisterhood of incredible, inspiring, poised leaders,” Johnson said. “Once I met some of the current cheerleaders, I became even more encouraged, and knew I wanted to be in their position.”

Johnson devotes more than 20 hours a week to dance, taking classes at TCU as well as taking private lessons with current DCC members.

Johnson has been training for the DCC auditions since August 2013, going from two to seven prep classes a week.

A typical day for Johnson starts with a 6 a.m. workout class at the University Recreation Center.

From there, Johnson works at the front desk of Sherley Hall, where she works on her homework assignments. After work, she attends classes until 5 p.m, and then immediately heads to dance practice.

Most of the time, Johnson drives to Dallas to train with current and alumnae DCC cheerleaders, choreographers and the technical coach, Kitty Carter. Johnson said she generally gets back to her dorm at either 1 or 2 a.m.

“I am so busy, and I love it.” Johnson said. “It makes my life so exciting.”

Along with dance practice, Johnson studies the history of the Dallas Cowboys by listening to podcasts on her walks to class. She also said that when she carpools to dance with friends, they have practice interview sessions.

The hopeful Dallas Cowboys cheerleader said she never stops dancing. When the Rec Center multipurpose rooms are closed, she uses the mirrors in the locker room. If that doesn’t work, she lines up mirrors in her room to practice.

Melinda McNatt, Johnson’s former coach of eight years and owner of Spirit of Tyler gym, said that Courtney is one of the hardest workers she’s ever worked with.

“She would be the first in the gym and the last to leave,” McNatt said.

Johnson said her ultimate goal is to become a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, but along the way she hopes to be an inspiration to others.

“I want other people to know that it feels incredible to pursue your dreams,” Johnson said.

Christen Lockett, a first-year pre-business major, describes Johnson as having “a beautiful spirit that shines through her dancing.”

Johnson said she wants to join other Horned Frogs who have ties to the Dallas Cowboys.

In 1961, TCU defensive tackle Bob Lilly was the Dallas Cowboys’ first draft choice, and the current DCC director is a TCU alumna. The DCC have also included former TCU Showgirls alumnae Kelsey Bond, Jordan Daigle and Emma Dutton in recent years.

“I used to dream about coming to TCU, training at the elite dance studios in Dallas, and auditioning for DCC,” Johnson said. “Now I have translated those dreams into goals.”

Auditions for the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders will start May 10.

Our Favorite Photos – Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Tobie

This month is our Tenth Anniversary and to celebrate we’re posting some of our all-time favorite photos.


Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Tobie at the opening weekend of the 2008 training camp in Oxnard.

Off and on for the past several years, the Dallas Cowboys have held their training camp in Oxnard, California.  Beginning in 2006, I decided to make the trek up the coast from Los Angeles to catch opening of training camp and photograph the world famous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.  They usually perform a few dance routines and sign autographs, a rather brief appearance all things considered but well worth it if you are a NFL football fan.  And when you get a chance to photograph the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, you have to do so.  They are that amazing.

In 2008, I was in Oxnard for training camp and was able to catch the DCC’s appearance during opening weekend where I snapped this photo of Tobie.  The DCC are professional dancers and they go full out at these performances.  High energy and even higher kicks.  I guess what I am saying is that even at a training camp appearance, they put on a show that is quite spectacular.  That’s why they are who they are.  And this photo of Tobie sums up their performance quite nicely.

A new goal for Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders legend

DALLAS — When you see the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders take the field these days, they carry with them lots of history.

The group – formed in 1960 and originally with high school students – were then known as the Cowbelles & Beaux’s.

By 1970, General Manager Tex Schramm decided to change their image to boost attendance. Five years later, Suzanne Mitchell, who started as Schramm’s secretary, took over as the director of the cheerleaders, but it wasn’t until the Super Bowl in Miami in January 1976 that things started to change.

“Everybody paid so much attention to the girls on the sidelines, and Tex started getting all these phone calls like crazy,” Mitchell said. “He said, ‘Somebody has got to manage these girls. Why don’t you do that in your spare time?’ So that was it.”

Mitchell would be director of the cheerleaders until Jerry Jones bought the team in 1989.

“Tex had given me my opportunity,” Mitchell said. “It was my loyalty to him that made me leave, because he gave me every opportunity to do what I did with the cheerleaders.”

To this day, Mitchell gets credit for molding the image of the cheerleaders into what you see on the field.

“What I did, especially the first few years, was say ‘no’ a lot, because Hollywood was calling, William Morrison [Agency] in New York was calling, and they had all these things they wanted us to do, to sponsor, to advertise, but they were not in keeping with the image that Tex wanted and what I wanted,” she said.

Opportunities continued to stream in.

“Then some things like TV shows like the Love Boat, the Oakridge boys, the Osmond brothers, The Country Music Awards, and things of that sort,” Mitchell said. “We started doing a little bit at a time, and mainly because the fans wanted to see the girls, and it progressed from there and I just held on tight.”

What followed were trips to visit the troops overseas, preforming in hangers and on aircraft carriers, and even carrying messages home from the troops to their families. Mitchell’s impact was being felt worldwide.

Today, the jacket she wore during those trips is kept at the cheerleaders’ headquarters at Valley Ranch.

“The first tour of Korea at Christmas, a young soldier came up and put a pin – his unit crest pin – on my jacket,” Mitchell said. “One after another, the boys kept doing, a pin, a pin. Well, the jacket ended up weighing 14 pounds, but I wore it every night.”

These days, Mitchell isn’t fighting for her girls, but instead is in a battle to save her life. Last July, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and is working with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to raise money to find a cure for the disease.

A 5k and fun run, held at Clyde Warren Park in Dallas, raised $500,000 last year. On Nov. 8 this year, they’re trying to double that amount.

“The thing about this cancer, and the reason I want to do thing like this is whatever time I have left – because only six out of 100 that are diagnosed live five years – so I don’t know how much time I have, but I want to spend that time trying to increase the awareness, because there is less funding for pancreatic cancer than there is any cancer,” Mitchell said.

To help raise money for research, Toni Washington, who was a cheerleader for Mitchell, designed what she calls her “Suzanne bracelet.”

“What she did – not just for me, for so many woman around the world – and I’m a better mother because of my mother and Suzanne,” Washington said. “Just the touch of her is unbelievable.”

Mitchell has seen many former cheerleaders step up to help.

“I was just blown away,” she said. “Most of the cheerleaders have bought one or are going to, and we’re hoping it’s going to help.”

In the meantime, Suzanne Mitchell, who has called herself “the luckiest lady that has ever lived,” continues to fight for her life.

Washington expressed her feelings to the woman who help mold her.

“You are my world,” Washington said. “I am the woman I am today because of you. And I love you more than words will ever know. The Suzanne bracelet will carry your legacy, and it’ll out live me.”

Dancer Jinelle Davidson from East Hawthorn Wins Place in Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Squad

By Catherine Lambert
Herald Sun

Ms Davidson, 27, of East Hawthorn, said it was a dream come true when she made the squad, after competing against 500 hopefuls for a spot.

“When I first learned about the Dallas Cowboys, they made me fall in love with cheerleading for all the right reasons,” Ms Davidson said.

“It’s a real family team; the cheersquad has the American sweetheart image and is the most famous squad of all. I really wanted to get close to that iconic uniform too. We do a lot of charity work. It teaches you a lot about leadership, as well as being part of a team.”

Ms Davidson has been dancing since she was four and started her first cheerleading job when she was 11, going on to become a member of the Melbourne Storm squad for five years before auditioning for the Dallas Cowboys.

She trained closely at Storm with Trish Squire-Rogers, who gave her the impetus to pursue her US dream.

She had to audition with 500 others from around the world before even making the first cut of 18 hopefuls, who progressed to training camp for the final auditions and 12 were selected for the team.

“At the camp we trained every day, sometimes until midnight, for four to seven hours a day.”

She was lucky to be chosen and shares the squad with girls who are mostly from the US, but a range of nationalities are represented.

Ms Davidson is in Melbourne for a holiday to spend time with her family and boyfriend of six years and still trains daily.

But when she returns to the US in a couple of weeks she is off to Mexico to shoot the Dallas Cowboys’ swimsuit calendar, and a reality TV show about their lives behinds the scenes will go to air in the US later this year.

“I receive fan mail most days of the week and write back to everyone — it’s very flattering,” she says.

“In America, the cheerleaders are just as famous as some players. It’s looked on in a really different light over there.

“We don’t stop and (we) learn about 30-50 different routines but the kick line and jump split that starts off the game is the most famous.”

Sarah Shahi: Person of Interest Star Says Being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Trained Her for Hollywood

By Nicki Gostin
FoxNews.com

Sarah Shahi plays Sameen Shaw in the CBS drama “Person of Interest” and has also appeared in shows like “Fairly Legal” and “The L Word.” The 34 year old Texan native is descended from Persian royalty, an ex-Dallas cheerleader and a pretty good shot, too. The married mom of a three year old son spoke to FOX411 about the show, being a cheerleader and gun ownership.

FOX411: Your family tree is pretty impressive!

Sarah Shahi: (Laughs) On my Dad’s side I’m descended from the first Shah of Iran. It was the early 1900’s, late 1800’s. That’s great-great grandpa. I still have a lot of family there. I’m very close with my mother and I do keep in contact with some of her family that’s still over there. I would love to go, I’ve never been but you know it’s not very easy to get there.

FOX411: Tell me about your “Person of Interest” character Sameen Shaw.

Shahi: She’s definitely a mix between Jason Bourne and the Catwoman with an appetite for violence. She’s incredibly dark. She has a dark sense of humor. She’s a loner. She’s on the team but she’s not really on the team if that makes sense.

I have a great time playing her. My favorite part of the job is doing all the action stuff. That’s pretty much why I took it. I like to do things that scare me. One of my goals is to be the host of ‘Shark Week’ and I’m terrified of sharks. I would like to go cage diving with them but only if there’s a film crew in front of me because for some reason I feel like if they’re there I’m not going to get eaten.

I love to do things that kind of intimidate me, that I’ve never done before. The idea of having to do your own stunts and be very physical. This show almost has an adult comic book graphic book feel to it. It’s very stylized and I’ve never been a part of anything like that before.

FOX411: What was it like being a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader?

Shahi: It was hmm… how to put this in the most PC way? It was very competitive I will say that, it was a great learning experience at the same time. Those cheerleaders make show business look like babies foreplay. They weigh you to the 100th of a pound. If you’re above your goal weight you have to sit outside of that week’s game. When it’s time for water breaks the veterans go first. It’s not a democracy. With all that being said, I’m not trying to paint them out to be villainous in any way. I learned a great deal about what it’s like to be disciplined and rehearse. We rehearsed for eight hours a day every single day and I was a full time college student. To be able to have that kind of foundation going into Hollywood was fantastic.

FOX411: And isn’t the pay really crappy?

Shahi: In Texas to be a Dallas Cheerleader is a very big deal. You’re told not to fraternize with the players. That this is not where you’re going to get your next husband. I think some of them, that’s exactly what they’re thinking. And yes you definitely do not do if for the pay. You know what you’re getting into though, they’re very upfront about it.

FOX411: And you’re pretty nifty with a gun.

Shahi: I am a marksman. I own a Glock 9mm.

FOX411: Do you feel like gun ownership is viewed differently in Texas than say…

Shahi: California? Absolutely. Texas is a right to carry state. I was not raised with guns. My first introduction with guns came when I was cast in a show called “Life.” My character was a detective so I took it upon myself to become familiar with a gun. There’s a couple of ranges out in L.A. that I go to and it’s really fun. I keep a gun at home and it’s locked up in a place that my son is not aware of. It’s a hobby that I’ve picked up.

It’s hard to talk about guns and then not mention the mass shootings that have happened. I definitely feel like something needs to change one way or another. It’s a terrible situation. You drop your kid off at school thinking they’ll be safe, then the next thing you know, half the class is gone.

If you own a gun you need to educate yourself. It can’t fall into the wrong hands. There should be mental checks. More background checks go into adopting a dog then someone walking into a store and being able to buy a gun. I think that’s not right.

FOX411: It must be hard you working in New York and your husband and son being in L.A.

Shahi: It’s kind of miserable. It’s definitely a balancing act and it’s a lot of going back and forth. A lot of sleep sacrificed on my part but I guess when you become a mother you make this unspoken promise that you are going to put your kid first no matter what price you have to pay, so that’s what I’m doing, so I don’t turn into “aunt mom.”

FOX411: What do you like to do in your time off?

Shahi: Every hiatus I try to pick up a trade of some sort. Last hiatus I learned to ride a motorcycle and this year I’m thinking of harmonica lessons. I think it’s important to keep learning a new skill. You never know Bob Dylan might need some backup.

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader gets that feline feeling in ‘Cats’ at Casa Manana

By Nancy Churnin
Dallas News
February 27, 2014

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and former Rockette Olivia Carter plays Victoria in Cats, opening Saturday at Casa Manana Theatre in Fort Worth. We caught up with Olivia for an email Q and A on her journey from Lake Highlands to the Jellicle Ball.

Q: Where are you from? Was there any point growing up when you thought you would be a Dallas Cheerleader — or a ‘Cat’?

Olivia: I was born and raised here in Dallas. I grew up in the Lake Highlands area and attended Lake Highlands Junior High and High School. Dance was always my main passion and I trained extensively growing up at the Academy of Dance Arts in Allen, TX. My professional career started with concert work and slowly made its way to musical theatre roles. I toured with the Rockettes as a part of the ensemble and have been seen on the Casa stage in their productions of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Evita (as the lead tango dancer) and in Hairspray (as Lou Anne). [photos] The role of Victoria in Cats is an iconic and dream role for dancers. It is an absolute honor to be playing her! I never expected to be given the chance at such a dream role.

Q: What made you want to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader?

Olivia: I was inspired to become a cheerleader because of my mother-in-law, [former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders] Kitty Carter. I wanted to continue her legacy with the organization.

Q: Why did you want to be in Cats?

Olivia: I wanted to be a part of the continuing legacy of Cats. It is one of the most well-known and loved musicals of all time. I feel like I will now have a tiny part of its history and that is such an honor!

Q: What’s the most challenging part of being a ‘Cat’? What’s the best part? Do you have a favorite moment in the show?

Olivia: Everything about being a ‘cat’ is challenging: the movement, the acting the singing. You really have to transform yourself. The physicality of the dancing in the show is probably the most demanding part. My favorite moment in the show is my moment with Grizabella in the closing scene.

Q: What do you like best about the cat that you play?

Olivia: I love Victoria because of the dancing she does. My background is primarily dance so it is nice be in a role that relies heavily on that!

Q: What’s next for you? Are you planning on doing any more singing, dancing or acting?

Olivia: Hopefully more roles and more dancing!! I plan on continuing my career as a professional performer.

Interview with Rookie Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Paige

I’m Just Saying … With Paige Elaine
By Jeff Arnold
Northwest Herald
January 4, 2014

Paige Elaine fell in love with the Dallas Cowboys when she was 14. Part of the appeal of America’s Team was the team’s iconic cheerleading squad. The 2006 Jacobs graduate just completed her rookie season with the 39-member squad after appearing on the reality show, ‘Making The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders’’. She also continues her full-time career as a personal banker. For personal security reasons, we are not printing her last name.

Everyone knows the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleadersand that kind of sets them apart from everyone else. The class that they bring to the organization and just the role models that they’ve been for little girls, I’ve never heard of another cheer team being talked up or talked about as much as The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. But there’s definitely a responsibility. You never know who’s looking at you, you never know what little girl is wanting to be you. I was that little girl at one point and so I know that they’re out there even though it’s kind of tough to think of yourself in that aspect.

Even now, even after a full season, there’s still the me that always wanted to be (a Cowboys cheerleader) and wanted to be on the show and that thinks ‘Be this’ and ‘Present yourself this way’. Then there’s the me that has lived it and who goes out every game and I do what I need to do and hit the routines I need to hit. I still get surreal moments and I almost want to cry when I see my family and friends in the stands because my worlds still haven’t combined that I’m actually living my dream that I have always watched (on TV). So that’s still kind of crazy to me.

I remember the exact moment when I found out I made it. Just sitting outside on our training field and it was unbelievable and surreal. I couldn’t believe it had just happened. I didn’t have words. The rookies either just teared up or kind of had blank stares just because for three months, you were on edge and stressed. Then, for it to just kind of wrap up and to be on the team and say, ‘Alright, that’s over and now we’ve got a game in a week’, there was no skipping a step. It’s just like, let’s get out there. It’s almost a tease to put on that uniform (before making the team) but when you put on that uniform in front of your locker with your photo above it knowing you’re going on that field as one of the 39 cheerleaders, I kept looking at my roommate saying, ‘We made it’. It’s the best feeling in the world.

I feel like I’m part of Texas. It’s kind of weird – being part of a tradition and being a big part of a Texas tradition, I’m learning the ropes a little bit. But I’m settled. It took me a season, but I feel like I was always meant to be here. It’s just a new life. It’s really exciting. There’s moments when people realize I’m a cheerleader and their eyes kind of get big and there’s a reaction. I’m still not used to it. Even when we’re making appearances and we’re in uniform and a little kid comes up and asks, ‘Are you the real Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders’, you just want to tell them, ‘I’m real – I’m just like you’. But it’s different being in that light. But it just comes with the uniform and the territory just because it’s such a big tradition.

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Visit Camp Casey

US soldiers receive an unexpected holiday gift

CAMP CASEY, South Korea – Normally around this time of year, most people are trying to finish up their holiday shopping, but a few lucky fanatics received an early holiday gift at the Hansen Field House Gymnasium and the Community Activity Center on Camp Casey.

Twelve Dallas Cowboys’ cheerleaders visited with soldiers, family members, Department of Defense civilians, and Korean nationals Dec. 20, 2013.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” said Sgt. 1st Class Edward Smith, from Oklahoma City, a platoon sergeant assigned to 333rd Field Artillery Target Acquisition Battery, 1st Battalion, 38th Field Artillery Regiment, 210th Field Artillery Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division. “I think it is a great opportunity for the kids to interact with one of America’s favorite teams.”

As much as the troops and family members were happy to receive their holiday gift, the cheerleaders were honored to meet some of their heroes.

The United Service Organizations and the Dallas Cowboys’ cheerleaders have been teaming up to visit troops all over the world in a tradition that has been growing strong for 77 years.

“First of all, I am honored to be one of the 12 cheerleaders chosen to be a part of this opportunity,” said Olivia Rene, from Dallas, in her second year as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. “We have been doing this for a really long time and not a lot of people get to go and visit troops in their environment and to be able to tell them thank you face-to-face during the holidays.”

During the visit, the cheerleaders interacted with more than 60 boys and girls in a two-hour football and cheer youth clinic and signed more than 100 autographs.

According to Rene, their overall message to the kids during the clinic is teamwork, being a good leader, and health and nutrition.

For Maj. Michelle Myers, from New Orleans, a communications officer assigned to 2nd Infantry Division, having the cheerleaders here in Korea for the children is a wonderful opportunity.

“It is a great motivation for the girls,” said Myers. “They are able to learn the importance of everything that is incorporated in being a cheerleader, not just cheering.”

“They must have other skills associated with that,” Myers continued. “When the cheerleaders introduced themselves, a lot of them went to college and received their degrees. Just by them doing that it shows the girls it’s more to being a cheerleader than just the games.”

Having the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders here in Korea was a wonderful experience. Whether Cowboys fans or not, everyone involved made memories for lifetime.

“Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts,” said Rene. “It really means a lot to us that you accommodate us and let us come visit you. We are so thankful for your service, and as much as we can give back to you we are willing to do that.”

Today, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders announced fifth-year veteran Jackie Bob as this season’s Pro Bowl representative.

She was selected by her teammates and the DCC staff based on her dance ability, showmanship, poise and leadership. Fans were also invited to cast a ballot for their favorite cheerleader.

Jackie will travel to Honolulu, Hawaii, for the Jan. 26 event, joining a prestigious group of NFL representatives. She will learn over 20 new routines, perform in a nationally televised halftime, and make public appearances throughout the entire Pro Bowl week of festivities.

Jackie’s selection is very unique in that she has cheered in the NFL for nine seasons, ­ four with the 49ers and five with the Cowboys. Having represented San Francisco at the Pro Bowl in 2009, she will become the ONLY NFL cheerleader in history to make a REPEAT appearance on different teams at the Pro Bowl.
