slumberpartygirlsThe Slumber Party Girls were a teen pop music group from the 2000s that consisted of Caroline Scott (from Southaven, Tennessee), Cassie Scerbo (born Cassandra Lynn Scerbo on March 30, 1990 in Long Island, New York), Karla Deras, Carolina “Lina” Carattini and Mallory Low (born on August 30, 1989 in California).

The group was formed in July 2006 by music producer Ron Fair. Cassie, Caroline, Mallory, Lina and Karla were chosen out of 1,000 girls who auditioned to be in the group. Once the group line-up was completed, they began working on their debut album.

During that same month, they became the hosts of the “KOL Secret Slumber Party” show on the CBS network weekend programming line-up. The dance competition show “Dance Revolution” also premiered as part of the weekend lineup and had the Slumber Party Girls as its house band.

On the day their album was released, they appeared on the CBS network talk show “The Early Show” where they performed the song “Countdown.” They also talked about a made-for-TV movie and a TV series which was supposed to premiere in 2007.

In order to help promote the album further, the Slumber Party Girls shot music videos for the songs: “Dance With Me”, “The Texting Song”, “Salsa”, “Summer’s Gone”, “Make a Wish”, “My Life”, “I Got Your Back”, “Carousel”, “Back to Basics”, “Good Times”, “Eavesdroppin'”, “Countdown” and “Bubblegum”.

In 2007, the group began recording their follow-up album, but there were rumored disputes between members Mallory Low and Karla Deras about dating actor Keegan McFadden (who starred on the CBS children’s show “Cake”). By the summer of that same year, the Slumber Party Girls disbanded which led to their follow-up album, made-for-TV movie and TV series to be cancelled.

Even though the group disbanded, “KOL Secret Slumber Party” continued to air on CBS until its final broadcast on September 8, 2007 and two of their songs “Summer’s Gone” and “My Life” were featured in the film “Bratz: The Movie.”

After the Slumber Party Girls came to an end, Cassie Scerbo went on to pursue acting and also signed a record deal with Geffen Records where she released three singles on iTunes.

Mallory Low continued with her acting career (before joining SPG, she appeared on the short-lived Nickelodeon series “Just for Kicks”), starring on the ABC Family series “Lincoln Heights” and appeared in the interactive short series “Hampton High.” These days, she appears to still be performing music.

Karla Deras went on to study manufacturing and merchandising in the fashion business at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising and has a style blog called Karla’s Closet.

According to Lina Carattini’s Facebook page, it appears as if she is engaged and has a child. As for Caroline Scott, it’s unknown what she’s up to these days.
