‘Blue Collar TV’s’ Ashley Drane Knows Blue Collar

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The second season of the WB’s Blue Collar TV launched this week and show co- star Ashley Drane feels right at home with her blue-collar cast members.

Drane admits to coming from a blue-collar family and says, “If I know anything, I know blue collar TV.”

Several of the skits are based on her own upbringing or things she witnesses. Last season, a sketch about a 13-year-old cheerleader’s provocative dancing was based on what she saw at her younger sister’s cheerleading competition.

Drane says her sister’s squad was pretty conservative, but she saw 12- and 13-year-olds, “wearing nothing, doing the sexiest dancing I’ve ever seen.”

This season, Drane promises she’ll revive her role as Dolly Parton for a spoof of Million Dollar Baby called “Million Dollar Boobies,” and also will play a trailer-trash character named Donna in a sketch called “White Trash Days of Our Lives.”

She’s also planning her November wedding to St. Louis Cardinals shortstop, David Eckstein, which she assures will NOT be blue collar.
