Calendar Girls

When the 38 Eagles cheerleaders go to the Maya Riviera on Sunday to shoot their next calendar, more than just the cameras of veteran shooter Steve Vaccariello will be along.

In a first, Telemundo is sending a crew out of Miami. The Spanish net is a partner of NFL Networks, which is trying to boost American fĂștbol awareness among Latino audiences. The fact that two of the new Eagles cheerleaders are fluent in Spanish should help matters. Telemundo is planning a segment for an NFL special in September and the footage may be used in an earlier show.

Fox29 is sending reporter Michelle Williams to the event for stories that will air this month. (Sweeps!)

To mark the calendar's fifth anniversary, the Eagles will gather all five cover models for a shoot Wednesday. The cheerleaders plan to perform for guests at Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa on Tuesday and Wednesday. The calendar comes out in July.
