Last night's Dance Moms was a lesson in opposites. For once, Abby Lee Miller was in a (dare I say?) nice mood. She kept her criticism to a minimum and was full of compliments for the girls. However, former besties Kelly and Christi caused tension wherever they went and end up at each other's throats. Was it a full moon?
The episode begins as the dancers and moms convene at the studio, and the women are all wondering about Christi and Chloe's status with ALDS. Kelly still hasn't heard from her friend, although Christi has briefly spoken to Holly. The mother-daughter duo arrive, and the girls are elated to see their friend. Abby refuses to speak to Christi, but Christi still manages an apology and admits that she's made peace with the competition's director to smooth things over on Abby's behalf.
Abby is very disappointed in the girls' showing at the recent competition, and she rips Cathy to shreds. Holly maintains that Abby was insensitive to Nia's health issues, but Abby doesn't want to hear it. Nia is at the bottom of the pyramid, as is Paige for not getting to dance thanks to Holly's outburst. Kendall joins her friends because she didn't place in her solo. MacKenzie and Brooke are on the middle rung, and both gain Abby's praise. Maddie is back on top again for winning with her solo. This week, the girls will be dancing in Florida. Everyone is permitted to dance in the group routine entitled "Money is the Root of All Evil." The costumes will be green and made out of real money. What? Maddie and Brooke both receive solos.
Just in case you were wondering, Basketball Wives' volatile star Evelyn Lozada still enjoys talking to the media. I realize it's been a few weeks, so you were likely worried that she'd fallen off the face of the earth. Fear not, she's still here, and she's got a lot to say.
Evelyn dishes on her desire for a husband and more kids, her complicated relationship with former spouse Chad Johnson Ochocinco Johnson, and all of her latest business ventures. While she's clearly super busy, Evelyn still has time to say "Cheerio" to her fans across the pond while attending London Fashion Week. Hey, it's beats throwing wine bottles at people, right?
Country music singer and former Celebrity Rehab patient Mindy McCready died on Sunday of an apparent suicide. The thirty-seven-year-old mother had a long history of mental health problems and substance abuse. Her boyfriend killed himself less than a month ago.
Mindy is the fifth Celebrity Rehab participant to die since appearing on the reality show, and she is the third from her season. Despite the turmoil endured by several of his patients, Dr. Drew Pinsky still believes that the show can be successful if the participants maintain treatment.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mindy's family and friends.
Let's get started with the stupidity, shall we? Chelsea's friend comes by to visit, and Chelsea whines that her IUD fell out the other day when she was going to the bathroom. TMI. Her friend inquires as to whether Chelsea saw her doctor, but Chelsea didn't have time…Adam came over to see her for the first time in ages. Not shockingly, they pair ends up getting it on…sans condom, of course. Don't worry, y'all. She won't get pregnant because he pulled out before finishing. TMITMITMITMI!!!! I wonder how she thinks Aubree came to be…Her friend urges her to make better choices, and Chelsea whines that she doesn't have her normal "giddy for Adam" feelings. That's definitely something to be proud of as you await your period, moron!
At least Kailyn is making better choices, right? Oh wait…no. She gets upset that Jo's girlfriend is over at his house when she drops off Isaac, and she and Jo get into a physical altercation that ends with her filing for a temporary order of protection from abuse. Violence is not the answer, but I will never understand her double standard of allowing Javi around Isaac after one date while Jo's serious girlfriend is a problem. Kailyn's friend Mark (who is totally in love with her) comes over to hear her story. Mark tries to give her some sound advice, but she won't listen. I can't believe the language she uses in front of her son. Kailyn explains that she'll have temporary full custody until their hearing in two weeks. Mark just seems totally befuddled at his friend's behavior.
Here's a 'would you rather' scenario, courtesy of Shahs of Sunset. Would you rather see Mike Shouhed in the buff or be styled by Reza Farahan? Of course, that may not be the most difficult of decisions…
Two of the stars of the Bravo hit are focusing on clothing this week…one is hellbent on taking it off while the other fancies himself a designer. I don't doubt you can guess who is doing what, right? Mike is excited to bare it all for Playgirl, and he is revealing that he's not the only one who is thrilled with the news. Meanwhile, Reza is teaming up with a family member to market a new clothing line.
Love & Hip Hop returned last night with a vengeance. Apparently the cast had a lot of fights to make up for after being off the air for a week. Almost every story line incorporated a screaming match, if not a physical altercation. Keeping it classy as always, VH1!
The episode begins as Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz are celebrating her success in the recording studio. She is ready to start on the video, and Rich teases her for being demanding. He wants the pair to sign a contract. Rich isn't going to ask for any favors just because Erica is his girlfriend. She wants to be cautious with her career.
Lore'l is working on her music, and Winter Amos comes to see her at the studio. Winter wants to help her friend reach her potential. She wants to know why Lore'l hasn't already become the next big thing. Lore'l has broken Business 101, and she's being managed by one of her good friends. Winter thinks this is a huge issue, and she plants the seed in Lore'l's head to look for better management.
I guess you're not technically an MTV reality star if you don't start getting caught for stupid stuff the second you get a taste of fame. Just ask the girls of Teen Mom…am I right? Now, the ridiculous kids of Buckwild are vying for their spot among the dumbest of the dumb.
First Salwa Amin was arrested last week for possession of drug with intent to distribute, and now her co-star Michael Burford is getting his own mugshot after being busted for DUI. Congratulations, idiot.
Serious question…did any of you watch the X Factor? I kept up with some of gossip, but I prefer The Voice. It seems that the talent show just can't seem to get it together as far as judges are concerned (see you later, Britney Spears!), and now there are rumors that one of the hosts is on the chopping block.
Since brief stint on the show, Khloe Kardashian has been criticized for being awkward and orchestrating nip slips. There was even a rumor that was being paid by The Voice to do such a horrible job. That's bad! Of course, I highly doubt that Khloe was getting cash for her craptastic hosting (it would almost be better if she were…), but the poor girl has no experience other than ridiculous reality shows. Now, sources are alleging that she may not be back next season.
