That's funny...you actually think Vikkie is going to have a real job? No way. She'll DCC until engagement, get married, have kids and live off her husband until she dies or the alimony is enough to live on.
To be on a top college team---which her mom would never allow less than---Vikkie would have to actually be a good dancer. Sad fact, she'd never make it.
And it only takes 1 or 2 cheerleaders of the group before it tumbles. I guarantee you that there is 1 or 2 Vets that are reassuring everyone, helping everyone cope, building everyone up...if either of those 2 people crack, it'll all fall. Then it becomes, "If X has had enough, I can't cope with this." Classic group mentality. Kelli clearly didn't take psychology or sociology classes in college...wait, did Kelli go to college?
