Angry parents managed to make their school fire a cheerleading coach who had posed naked for Playboy. But for all the outrage from parents over this woman who was supposed to be acting as a “role model” to their kids, is anyone surprised the real reason Carlie Christine got canned was because she refused to overlook a few school rules?
According to a California TV station, Christine was fine until a few girls didn’t make her squad because of unexcused absences from school. That’s when the girls’ cranky parents made copies of her centerfold (which is quite nekkid – our big brother publication Nerve has the pictures if you want to see – but you’ll have to search for them yourself on Google, they’re definitely NSFW) and dropped them on the principal’s desk.
Apparently, they wouldn’t have cared who was coaching their daughters until they found out no one was coaching them.
Now that word is out, of course, that Christine was Playboy’s “cyber girl of the week” and posed totally topless in the centerspread of the magazine. And parents are mad that she was ever allowed around their kids.
I’m on the fence about this one – perhaps more so because of the duplicity of the parents. It’s a pity they couldn’t be righteously indignant BEFORE they wanted Christine to bend school rules for their kids.
While I would hope that a cheerleading coach, who is supposed to be someone teen girls look up to, would have a little more respect for herself than to do this, I will say she was doing something completely legal (she wasn’t on a street corner, folks), and she did it on her own time. She wasn’t holding a modeling shoot in the middle of practice. And last I checked, cheerleading coaches don’t exactly make a lot of money.
What do you think parents? Should Christine get the ouster or should these parents learn to grow up?
(Also of note: Brett points out, over at his site Daddytips.com, that Ms. Christine’s online modeling profile says “no nudes.” Riiiight.)
