Once Again, Life Imitates Art

Fox News: A woman pretended to be her high-school aged daughter in order to be a cheerleader.
A 33-year-old woman stole her daughter's identity to attend high school and join the cheerleading squad, according to a criminal complaint filed against the woman.
Buffy, The Vampire Slayer, Season One, Episode Three: Witch

Despite Giles' misgivings, Buffy decides to try out for the cheerleading team. During trials, the hands of a girl named Amber spontaneously combust. Amy seems to be under strong pressure from her winning mother, a star cheerleader in her day, and is crushed when she only makes the substitute list after Cordelia and Buffy. . . .
The ailing Buffy and Giles go confront the mother, only to realize that the real Amy is stuck in her mother's middle-aged body while her mother is reliving her glory days.

I miss that show. Good thing I have all seven seasons on DVD.
