Christina Applegate – one of the founders of the ‘Pussycat Dolls’
Christina Applegate in “Married with Children” embodied the character Kelly Bundy. But it is less known that she is a dancer, and is one of the founders and former members of the huge popular female group Pussycat Dolls. It all started like this.
Robin Antin choreographer at the beginning of the 90’s was playing with the idea of setting up a group that would perform burlesque. Her dream finally came to life in 1995 when Pussycat Dolls were founded, and one of the first members was actress Christina Applegate. The group performed 50’s and 60’s music, dressed in corks, and they performed at The Viper Room, Johnny Depp Nightclub in Los Angeles, until 2002.
Their work soon joined music producers Jimmy Iovine and Ron Fair, who helped them transform into a singing band and become a franchise. Two managers have also recognized Nicole Scherzinger talent to whom they quickly set the lead in the group, and two years later their first PSD album was also released.
“I started the Pussycat Dolls as a dance band of burlesque, and we performed in 1995 at the Johnny Depp Viper Room at the Sunset Strip. Seven years later, when we started playing at The Roxy, I became the program manager, “commented Christina.
