A stereotype is, by definition, an over-generalisation.
By pure virtue of statistics and human diversity, it's extremely unlikely for any stereotype to be true, as it's almost extremely unlikely to find a complete group of people conforming to a certain action. Thus my bet would be no.

My only three blonde close friends are also my only three friends who pretend to be dumb to look more sexually appealing.

The fact is that stereotypes are based on a grain of truth. However, this does not mean I am saying that stereotypes are true, they do not apply to everyone in that group or whatever, just that there are people in that group who all display the same characteristics.
As @oShapo said, a stereotype is an over-generalisation.
