Last night’s Dance Moms saw another Payton/Leslie invasion, the moms standing up for one another and Abby sneaking Maddie into a second competition without telling the troupe. Geez!
Abby gets on the troupe for getting second place overall. While any other dance teacher would be thrilled, Abby reminds her girls that she is not any other dance teacher. Paige is on the bottom of the pyramid along with Brooke, who is still on probation. She blames the girls for not coming to them on their own to beg for their solos after mom Kelly pulled them from the competition. Is she serious? Nia is also on the bottom, although I’m not sure why. Chloe and Maddie are in the middle of the pyramid with MacKenzie taking the coveted top spot. Melissa is super proud. The competition this week will be held in Virginia, and it’s touted as the largest dance competition in the country.
In her Bravo blog, Vicki compares Tamra to Jeana Keough, writing, “I…believe Tamra should not have chosenHeather [Dubrow]‘s party to replay her drama with the wine episode with Jeana. Remember why Tamra was mad at Jeana last year? To refresh your memory, it was because Jeana was getting involved in Tamra and Simon’s marriage and “butting in.” Hmmm. . .isn’t that what she has been doing with Brooks and I?”
“Innnnnn West Philadelphia, born and raised, with the Mob Wives is how I spent most of my days…” Wait what? Mob Wives…Philadelphia? Isn’t enough, enough? Unless Will Smith wants to be a part of this new franchise, I think I’m done with any and all things mob related…at least where reality TV is concerned. I may be out of luck as the New York Daily News is reporting that Alicia DiMichele of South Jersey has been approached about starring in a Mob Wives spin-off set in Philadelphia.
Alicia is married to gangster Edward Graofalo who has ties to the Colombo crime family. She even has a federal conviction herself. Legit! She lives fifteen minutes outside of downtown Philly, raising the couple’s three kids while her husband serves his time in federal prison. Her lawyer reveals,“Alicia DiMichele has been contacted by a number of media outlets. She is focused on taking care of her children and keeping her family together.”
After last week’s drama, Mimi Faust is recapping her feelings about K. Michelle’s birthday party with her good friend Ariane. Ariane tries to talk some sense into her friend, but Mimi is just upset because Stevie tells her that she is his world. Um, well, someone else was his world last night! Ariane questions Mimi’s next step, but Mimi just can’t make such a big decision right now. Gracious.
Rasheeda talks about her family with Kirk Frost. After working with some major labels, she is much happier being a part of an independent label with her husband as her manager. Together, they try to figure out her next single. Kirk knows that she has the talent to go far, even if he’s more her sucker than her husband or business partner. He wants the pair to be able to balance work and marriage. Kirk is tired of having Rasheeda bring work issues into the bedroom.
Rosie Pope is shaking her head right about now. Something tells me that Pregnant in Heels isn’t quite the same as Pregnant in Foam Platform Cheetah Flip Flops. Perhaps it could be a spin-off though, right? Our old friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi didn’t fare too well recently in her staple tacky platforms, taking a tumble in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. While tripping and falling in the streets is nothing new to MTV’s favorite meatball, usually it’s due to severe intoxication. However, no one wants to see a pregnant guidette taking a fall, given, you know, the fact she has a baby on board.
The Huffington Post reminds us that Snooki has touted her ability to walk tall (well, kind of) in heels during her pregnancy. The site reports that she told Good Morning America not too long ago, “I feel confident in them, and I know I’m not going to fall, so until it feels very uncomfortable, I’m still going to rock them. I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant — it doesn’t mean I need to be wearing flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good.” Maybe not flats, but perhaps Snooki should bring back those beautiful fuzzy pink sneaker slippers as she moves into her later trimester. We’re glad to know she’s okay though!
Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey focused on the important things in life: Rosie’s jaunty cap collection, the remix of “On Display,” and friends doing everything in their power to maintain a strong bond through mutual respect, listening, and give-and-take. Oh wait, maybe not that last thing…
Caroline Manzo? More like Caroline Done-zo! She is way over Teresa Giudice’s behavior. I mean she only wanted to return some swimsuits in the least set-up and manipulated scene ever and she ends up in the midst of World War Tre? Uh uh. No way. Caroline is fed up…and you don’t want to see Caroline fed up because fed up Caroline looks like Caroline always looks scary. The Manzo brood,Greg Bennett, and Uncle Chris Laurita are drinking some sucky read wine in the yard. Laurenis worried about Jacqueline after hearing stories of tabloid-gate twenty-twelve. Chris regales the children with stories of a Jacqueline once so loony, she threw all her ex-husband’s belongings into their front yard. Basically, he opines, she is now throwing all of Teresa’s metaphorical crap onto their manicured lawn. Chris wonders why women can’t handle fights with a quick discussion and then forgive and forget like he and his fellow brawn practice. Oh yeah, emotionally emoted emotions.
Last night was the season finale of Sister Wives. There were college visits, big decisions, and a lot of running around the desert. When you think about it, that would be the best way to best capture the flowiness of Kody’s mane, which, let’s face it, is the true star of this show.
Logan is graduating from high school, and he has narrowed his college search down to Southern Utah University and UNLV. Mariah wants him to go to SUU, but Madison hopes he’ll stick close by as he’s her best friend. Logan reveals that while his dad, moms, and siblings want him to stick around to be close to the family, but Logan isn’t planning on sticking around till he’s forty to see his brothers and sisters grow up. Can you blame him? His mom Janelle thinks he’ll have more ties to his religion if he goes to SUU. Logan isn’t dead set on whether he’ll be a polygamist. He sounds JUST LIKE Kody when he talks.
VH1 seems to have learned that viewers are getting a bit testy with the violence. Last night’s Mob Wives Chicago, while expletive-filled, had no hair pulling, eye scratching, or table jumping. Refreshing! You have to throw in one calm episode every once in a while, right?
Christina Scoleri and Leah Disimone meet for brunch, and Christina reveals to Leah that she met up with Pia Rizza. Their accents are killing me, and almost every other word of Leah’s is bleeped. Christina believes that meeting up with Pia was a huge wasted of time. After bleeping about Pia for a bit, they switch gears to start talking bleep about Nora Schweihs. Leah blames Nora for the friendship break down between Christina and Pia.
