They call themselves "The Desperate Housewives of Bowling Green," but these 25 Ohio women aren't feeling desperate right now.
They're feeling excited. That's because they're heading to Detroit where they will be part of a select group chosen to dance and cheer while the Rolling Stones perform at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Pam Bettinger, a stay-at-home mother of two, got 19 of her friends and fellow members of St. Julian's Fitness to sign up to be part of the Super Bowl show.
The women, who were notified via e-mail this week, didn't need to submit an audition tape or a photo or even say why they wanted to go. They just got their application in early and picked a name they thought might grab someone's attention: "The Desperate Housewives of Bowling Green."
The women, who range in age from 25 to 45, said they never expected to be picked, and admit they're not even "real dancers." They'll get a chance to practice at three mandatory rehearsals before the big event.
Tickets to the football game weren't part of the deal, but the "Desperate Housewives" don't care. They're Stones fans, but hardly any are football fans.
