Associated Tropes:

  • The Cast Showoff: Hellcats allowed her to show off not just her physical agility but also her vocal chops (compare Tisdale sharing a number with 3OH!3 to Michalka having whole solos). Especially when her sister came onto the show.
  • Dye Hard: She's a natural blonde, but has gone brunette since 2013.
  • Idol Singer: Alongside her sister Amanda as part of 78violet.
  • Ms. Fanservice: As Marti in Hellcats, as well as her photoshoot for Maxim. Not to mention her Shower Scene in The Roommate.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Who knew that Keely would turn out to be hot in the future?
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's gorgeous and stands 5'8" (1.73 m) tall.
