Miami Dolphins Cheerleaders 2015 Auditions

I was fortunate to attend the MDC preliminary & semi auditions this past weekend. As is the norm in Miami hundreds of beautiful and talented young ladies were lined up to try to attain a spot on one of the NFL’s most prestigious entertainment cheer squads. At end of day the field was reduced to 47 hungry candidates invited back to this week’s finals where they will compete with equally determined 33 veterans trying to maintain their spots. Ladies, let the fierce but friendly dual begin.

Come on out to Nova University in Ft. Lauderdale on Sunday May 3rd, the finals are open to the public. Check out DolphinsCheerleaders.com to vote for your favorites.

Our “Top Gun”, David Tyau, will be joining our coverage of the Finals so be sure to check back with us next week.

Who Is Marco Rubio’s Wife? Jeanette Dousdebes, Former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader, Shies Away From Media Attention

By Howard Koplowitz
International Business Times

Jeanette Dousdebes Rubio, the wife of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, was a Miami Dolphins cheerleader, but she isn’t so rah-rah on campaigning. Dousdebes Rubio, who describes herself as shy and dedicated to her four children with Marco, will have to grow more at ease with making political appearances, now that her husband is expected to get into the 2016 presidential race on Monday.

After meeting as teenagers at the West Miami Recreation Center, where Jeanette caught Marco’s eye while playing volleyball, the couple wed in 1998. While Dousdebes Rubio was involved in her husband’s 2010 Senate campaign, she played a behind-the-scenes role, shying away from media attention.

With Marco in Washington, Jeanette, the daughter of Colombian immigrants, takes care of their four children in their modest Miami home while working part time at the family foundation of Miami billionaire Norman Braman, according to the Washington Post.

“I’m not pushing myself out there. I need to be with [the] kids just to give them that balance,” she told Politico in 2012, her most extensive interview to date. “If he’s out there, I feel like I have to be here for them, to give them that reality.”

In the interview, Jeanette Rubio said she disdains the mudslinging of political campaigns. “You meet a lot of different people and you hear their stories. The part that’s difficult, I think, in campaigning is the part where you have to deal with the negativity that comes,” she said. “It puts a lot of strain on the family.”

But she also hinted at an increased role in Marco’s political life. “In the future, if I have to do it, of course I’ll do it,” she said. “But in general, I am shy.”

Her first date with Marco was to the movies to see “Robin Hood.” She told Politico that her future husband talked to her during the Kevin Costner flick, “which I thought was a little annoying,” but she was able to overlook his rudeness. The date had a lasting effect on Marco, as he wrote in his recently released memoir, “An American Son.” “The movie’s theme song was by Bryan Adams. To this day, whenever I hear the song, I remember the night I started to fall in love with Jeanette Dousdebes,” he said.

Florida’s Representation At Pro Bowl In Phoenix

It was an pleasure this year to photograph the three Pro Bowl Cheerleaders from the Florida NFL teams. Melissa of the Dolphins, Sam from the Jaguars and Cassie representing the Buccaneers.

Melissa in her fourth year was a Line Captain for two years and was lucky enough to be invited on her second overseas tour with Armed Forces Entertainment.

Line Captain Sam of the Jaguars ROAR is in her third year. I covered two of her games this season.

The Buc’s Cassie cheered for her fourth year and was selected Line Captain for the second time.

Congratulations to the ladies, being picked for the NFL Pro Bowl is a very impressive accomplishment.

Note to David Tyau—at your Pro Bowl coverage this year please see if you get a photo of these three lovely ladies together. Thanks.

Wedding Bells

From The Miami Herald

dolp

Former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader and Miami PR maven Lynn Lewis went to Paris as just another American New Year tourist, and she’s coming home a soon-to-be-bride.

Lewis agreed to marry former state Sen. Dave Aronberg, a Democrat who’s now the state attorney in Palm Beach County.

Aronberg, 43, popped the question atop the Eiffel Tower.

While the lovebirds were not reachable for a chat, they posted photos of Lynn sporting a huge rock on Facebook.

The UF grad started Lynn Lewis Public Relations after her 2007 season with the Fins. She specializes in special events and has offices in Tampa, New York and London. Hollywood legend George Hamilton is a client.

Aronberg, meanwhile, is an ambitious pol with ties to both parties (he once worked for GOP Attorney General Pam Bondi) for whom state attorney could be a stepping stone for statewide office.
