Girlicious member Chrystina Sayers wasn't sure what to do in terms of a career but got some guidance from her uncle --legendary Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers.
"He's just like my dad, he's very supportive," Sayers says of her famous uncle. "I don't tell this to a lot of people, but when I was a ninth-grader or a tenth-grader I was deciding whether I wanted to take on this career or not -- being an entertainer.
"I remember talking to him and asking him, 'What do you think I should do? Do you think I should go into the entertainment business and try and become a singer -- or go and try athletics?' He was the one who actually said, 'I think you should try and go forward in the entertainment business, I think you should do it.
"Because he's an athlete I thought he might say, 'Try the WNBA.' But I'm way too short for the WNBA. Even for a point guard you have to be five-foot-seven or something like that -- and I'm only five-foot-two, well five-foot-one-and-a-half. I just tell them I'm bringing the Sayers name back to the limelight because he's still a legend in football."
Perhaps the biggest challenge Girlicious will soon face is how to celebrate three birthdays in a span of four days. Sayers turns 21 on Thursday, Tiffanie Anderson turns 20 the following day and Nichole Cordova turns 19 on Aug. 17.
"I'm just going to do something really special for all of them," Natalie Mejia says. "I'll sing Happy Birthday to each of them."
