So, last night was the big recital for Abby Lee Miller's studio, and while y'all deserve a better intro, I'm kind of baffled/saddened/confused about what happened on last night's Dance Moms. Let's just get on with the recap, shall we?
The girls are preparing for the ALDC annual dance concert. Abby allows her girls to be slightly thrilled for their group dance victory last week before announcing Paige as the bottom of the pyramid. She makes Paige share why she's at the bottom…and it's for a minute mistake in the group routine. Kelly is livid. Maddie gets praised for a costume mishap, and her daughter is the lowest of the low for coming out of a turn too soon. Kelly says as much, and Abby is irate. To make her point, she makes Maddie drop and give her twenty push-ups to "appease" Kelly. That is horrible. Kelly's beef is with Abby, not with Maddie, and it's sick to see how Abby tries make alienate Maddie from her peers.
Discussing how it's hard to re-watch the drama after the fact, Kathy explains, "It scratches the surface again and that hurt keeps coming up. It’s hard to watch it because you’re like, ‘Oh my God—that’s what we look like.’ Sometimes it’s about the hurt and not about the actions that make is so bad. And we’ve come so far that you don’t want that to suck you back in."
She adds, "You have to rise above it and say, ‘Okay, I’m glad I’m not there anymore.’ It’s easy to add negativity because you now see what the other party was saying and you can easily start saying things and falling into that trap. You start reliving those patterns so you’re really not in a better place if you allow yourself to do the same things. Then you really haven’t learned anything."
When Sonja Morgan isn't performing impromptu burlesque shows and cooking eight-course meals in her handy toaster oven, she is quite the philanthropist. She has always been very involved with LGBT organizations and AIDS charities, and the Real Housewives of New York star was recently recognized by Inspired New York for her endeavors.
However, it wasn't all do-gooders and kind deeds…some attendees at the event wondered if there could be a romance blooming between Sonja and her co-star Aviva Drescher's ex-husband Harry Dubin. Of course, both Harry and Aviva (along with Bravo's camera crew) were on hand to support the flighty reality star as she accepted her award.
Last night's Love & Hip Hop Atlanta had everything you could ask for in a drama…romance, drugs, infidelity, the possibilty of prison, an unexpected proposal, and, of course, boobs. Lots and lots of boobs. VH1, you know what viewers want to see! #sarcasm #ican'tunseejoseline'sbathingsuit
Kirk Frost is livid over Rasheeda'smom's mini-van mayhem that ruined a palm tree and set his moped on fire (after running over it multiple times). He's willing to give his mother-in-law a pass, but had it been anyone else, he'd have come to blows. Oh yes, Kirk. You are so tough. Rasheeda reveals that she's already spoken to an attorney about filing for divorce, and Kirk actually seems surprised. He loves his wife and his family, and he's not all about those other women. He reminds her that she kicked him out, but she tells him she didn't tell him to go screw around…she was hoping he'd fight to stay in her life. Kirk is trying to skew Rasheeda's words to make his behavior at Benzino's cabin…and he's failing miserably.
Erica Dixon and Mimi Faust are commiserating about Lil' Scrappy and Stevie J. both use money for their daughters to keep the women indebted to them. Erica is sick of Momma Dee, and she's tired of Scrappy always taking his crazy mom's side. Mimi can relate…after all, the BMW Stevie bought for her definitely had strings attached. The women continue to share stories and discuss the wonders of a good boob job. It's perfectly normal conversation for the driving range!
Mob Wives'Renee Graziano has certainly been through the ringer over the last few seasons of the VH1 hit. We've watched her struggle with depression and prescription pill addiction which led to a recent stint in rehab.
Of course, at the root of most of her issues is ex-husband Junior Pagan who reconciled with Renee last season in an effort to turn state's evidence on her father. After her father was sent to prison, Renee's problems spiraled out of control and she was riddled with guilt. Well, now Renee has some news that she is thrilled to share. Something is happening on Wednesday, and for Renee, it can't get here fast enough!

K Popstarz is weighing in on the brash Ms. William's opinion on VH1's totally scripted hit…and it's not a nice one! Wendy allegedly said, "First of all Rasheeda, you and Kirk are ratchet for drumming up this story line, right here. Okay? Cuz you know what you're doing, cuz Stevie and my Puerto Rican princess, Joseline [Hernandez], were the popular couple. And you and your husband, or whatever you wanna call that animal, you all did this as a plot to get popular on that show. It's a shame what people will do to stay on this reality tv."
Comparing the show to Keeping up with the Kardashians, Wendy continued, "This is worse than the Kardashians. This is got to be the most ratchet [of] all reality shows on tv. It is disgusting but I cannot stop watching. Let me just say this. None of you all call, I don't want you to come on the show. It's just that I do watch, but you're not suitable guest(s) for the show, except for you my Puerto Rican princess Joseline."
It hasn't been a good week for those closest to Kim Kardashian, that's for sure. Not only has her mother Kris Jenner's talk show trial run been universally panned, her beau Kanye West is scuffling with paps at the airport. Good times!
First up, New York Post columnist Linda Stassi is claiming that Kris has been trying to bribe her for better reviews after writing that the pimp momager has as much business helming a talk show as her "talentless daughter had for hosting a talent show." Ouch.
According to Radar, Linda claims her "first bribe" arrived on Thursday in the form of a dozen gourmet cupcakes and a sterling silver Tiffany pen worth $325. Hey Kris! Although I haven't seen it, I'll happily write a sweet little review of your show for the right price! 😉
From what I've observed, if you're going to be a Bravo housewife, your future can take three possible paths—or any combination of the three, which takes serious talent (Kim Zolciak Biermann has pulled off the triple crown of housewives). These ladies either get their own spin-off, create their own pink, bubbly, wine cooler-ish alcoholic beverage, or lose their homes (granted Kim's was a rental) while attempting to live outside their means.
