It seems like Galleria and the Cheetah Girls have been waiting forever to record the demo tape that’s going to set the music industry on fire. They were all set to go last month, but then an accident put one girl on crutches and the Cheetahs’ dreams on ice. Once they’re all walking again, the Cheetahs set a date with their producer—but a four-legged problem is about to derail their plans.
Galleria’s next-door neighbor has a pregnant dog, and she insists that Galleria’s pooch Toto is the father. This puppy paternity problem takes up all of Galleria’s attention, and the other Cheetahs start to fear that if they ever do get into the studio, their lead singer won’t be able to do anything but howl. Deborah Gregory was born in Brooklyn, New York. When she was only three years old, her mother was institutionalized, and young Deborah was put into foster care. As a teenager, she started designing her own clothes and fantasized about a singing career. At the age of eighteen, she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology. She graduated in 1986 with a BS in cultural studies from Empire State College. After graduation, she found success as a model in Europe.
Gregory has written for various magazines including Essence, More, Us Weekly, and Entertainment Weekly. In 1999 she penned the book series the Cheetah Girls. The books were adapted into a series of original movies by Disney Channel starting in 2003. She also wrote Catwalk and Catwalk: Strike a Pose.
