Ashley Tisdale Cheering Her New Workout-Heavy 'Hellcats' Role

Ashley Tisdale has much to be excited about when it comes to life after East High School. Following the third installment of the popular High School Musical, Tisdale has focused on her CW show, Hellcats, in which she plays a cheerleader. And while she still loves her narcissistic character in HSM, Tisdale said there are certain things about Hellcats that she prefers. “It’s awesome to be able to work out for your job all the time,” Tisdale told PEOPLE of her role that often has her in sports bras and short shorts. “I am constantly working out with my trainer. I’m on a more healthy diet. I have a cheat day, though. It’s a very healthy way of living, I must say. It’s a lot of fun.” Her cheat food? “Something involving bread or pasta.” But the 25-year-old still embraces her days as a female antagonist on the Disney series, as well as her former cast mates. “The cast is growing up and we’re doing our own projects but I have to say there is a tight bond with all of us,” Tisdale told PEOPLE Sunday while hosting a party at Las Vegas’s Wet Republic. “We went through something that is so lucky and it’s something that does not happen every day and we have that connection. They are my best friends… It’s like second nature to us.” –Mark Gray

Her cheat day is bread or pasta? ummmm I eat bread every single day (100% whole wheat), people need to stop being afraid of carbs, especially healthy carbs

Who the fk cares? Her show will go off because no one will watch it. You’re working out for NOTHING, Ash! No talent.

@kylie- stop hating. you don’t need a show to workout. i’m assuming you don’t workout since you think otherwise. you can’t stop ignorance.

Ashley needs to give Hef a call. I’m sure he could find some work for her.

I hope she keeps voicing Phineas and Ferb too. My niece and nephew love that show

Why – why the Tisdale hate?! She seems like a sweet girl…I liked her on Suite Life of Zach and Cody too…though I haven’t gotten into this show, it seems okay. Good for her…

I watch the show and really like it. I was not an HSM fan…I am too old but as a former cheerleader, I really enjoy it.
