Ah, yes – our Disney Channel divas! We grew up with them, wanted to be friends with them, and wanted to just plain out be them. From their voices to their mesmerizing songs, and fashion-forward outfits (that I would honestly wear today), the Cheetah Girls have made a name for themselves and left a mark on our childhood for eternity. However, what happened to the girls since then? What are they up to, and are they still talking together? Well, let’s find out together as we dive into the Cheetah Girls then and now.

The Cheetah Girls Then and Now
