In most cases, there can be unrest in locker rooms due to the lack of team chemistry. However, in the case of the Cincinnati Bengals cheerleaders, the “Ben-Gals,” theirs is divided because some of the girls have breast implants.
Laura Vikmanis, 43, is the oldest cheerleader on the squad. She recently told the Cincinnati Enquirer that “the most prominent division on the Ben-Gals is not between the young girls and the older girls but between the real boobs and the fake boobs.”
Vikmanis is currently promoting her book It’s Not About the Pom-Poms: How a 40-Year-Old Mom Became the NFL’s Oldest Cheerleader and Found Hope, Joy, and Inspiration Along the Way, a personal account of being the oldest cheerleader in the league while raising a family.
“This is despite the fact that at any given time, a third of the real boobs are considering implants,” Vikmanis said.
It takes the term “being fake” to a new level.
