Want to See the 'Real Housewives' in Their Cheerleading Days?

Of course you do! Nearly everyone has a cheerleading past (and we have the photos to prove it). 

By Jocelyn Vena

Football season is almost upon us. And, really, what's a game without the cheerleaders? No one knows that better than this group of Real Housewives, who all got their cheer on long before they became Bravolebs. So who topped their cheer squad's pyramid? Several of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and their daughters (including Melissa Gorga, Amber Marchese, and Teresa Giudice's daughters) had team pride. On the West Coast, the ladies of the OC (Gretchen Rossi, Sarah Winchester) and one of the ladies of Beverly Hills (Taylor Armstrong) all went "Go team!" at one point in their lives. And, even down in Atlanta, Phaedra Parks, Kandi Burruss, and Nene Leakes all have cheerleading pasts. Need the proof? Check out these former cheerleaders in their vintage school photos below — and try to contain your school spirit.
