Well, she was only able to hide the crazy for one episode, wasn’t she? On last night’s Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller true colors shone after suppressing her normal antics for the season premiere.
The show begins with Jill harping on Abby’s newfound interest in Nia Frazier now that Nia’s career is blossoming outside of the ALDC. Jill feigns excitement for all the cool opportunities Nia is experiencing, but really she’s just peeved that Holly took matters into her own hands and got Nia the management she needed to launch her music. Jill, meanwhile, allowed Abby to manage Kendall in an attempt at brown-nosing, yet Abby has not given any effort into Kendall’s career. After Jill and Jessalyn’s ridiculous crybaby outburst regarding Ashlee’s daughter Brynn last week, Jessalyn suggests the women present a united front. After all, the girls do much better when the moms are supporting each other and not fighting. Perhaps she should keep that in mind the next time she’s screaming at preteens about shedding too many tears?
Well this is a first! Someone other than Thomas Ravenel is exiting the hot mess express otherwise known as Southern Charm. And, in a somewhat ironic twist of events, the controversial cast member who constantly threatens to quit (but never does) is confirming the hit show’s fourth season.
Y’all know what that means… I’m going to be fan girling all the cast’s favorite hot spots here in the Holy City (and hopefully eating some delicious food while I’m at it!) as the crew begins filming for the upcoming season. Cash in some of your mailbox money and pour yourself a dressing drink – they are back! Well, most of them, at least.
Sure, Heather serves as the prim and proper police a lot of the time, but have you seen her friends? They could use a little reminder now and then (I’m looking at you, Tamra Judge!). Plus, her closet is amazing and her husband is one of the nicest and most charming men with whom I’ve ever had the pleasure of speaking, no, I’m never NOT going to bring up this interview as it’s one of my most favorite memories in my time writing for this site. 🙂
So, on a scale of one to without question, how happy is Maddie Ziegler to be out from under Abby Lee Miller’s thumb? Only time will tell, but if last night’s Dance Moms season premiere was any indicator, the rest of the ALDC elite team needs to follow suit.
Abby has amped up the crazy (with all her legal woes, can you blame her?), and the mini moms are instigating drama among the veteran mothers…as if those ladies really need any push to engage in ridiculous and horrendous behavior…on camera, no less. But those sweet girls…I have certainly missed them and their talent!
The show begins with the girls and their mothers heading into the Los Angeles studio after a much needed break. JoJo Siwa believes that it seems incredibly different without the Ziegler sisters, and Kalani hopes that Abby will realize the elite team can hold their own without them…although she’s not holding her breath.
Oh goodness. When are we going to stop rewarding bad behavior? Who I am kidding? It’s clearly the American way! Well, if we’re going to give a reality train wreck another set of cameras and a captive audience, I guess Jenelle Evans is as deserving as anyone. There won’t be a shortage of drama, that’s for sure!
The Teen Mom 2 star has allowed us into her life (and her court hearings and her drug testing and her prison cell and so on and so on) for the past several years. When she’s not being arrested for parole violations or swapping boyfriends or having babies, Jenelle likes to share with her fans via social media. The mom to six-year-old Jace and two-year-old Kaiser, who is expecting a daughter in January with a new beau, recently tweeted about suing a television network. Is she planning to bite the hand that feeds her?
When it comes to Real Housewives of New Jersey, I’m so used to the craziness and table flipping and rogue fashion shows amped up on faux fur, pleather, white zin, and screaming–it’s actually weird when we get to see the calmer side of things. Am I right? This week’s episode was relatively free of the drama and cattiness these ladies love to spew. What’s that about? We all know a girls’ weekend is when the claws come out for the housewives. Not this one…only Jacqueline Laurita’s paranoia was present, but honestly, we’re all used to it at this point.
Siggy Flicker deserves a slow clap for the reconciliation I never imagined possible between Jacqueline and Teresa Giudice, and it was certainly refreshing to see more laughing out loud and less lashing out between the frenemies who have been fuming and feuding for ages. Over-under on how long this will last? Carolina Manzo has an idea…
The Joshes? Obviously one is hilariously precious and the other just got hitched (I’m sure we’ll be privy to the planning of said nuptials). The Brits? They shouldn’t Brexit just yet. However, Joshes and Brits aside, Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles is welcoming back a familiar face, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Madison Hildebrand, the formerly surfer coiffed, snarkily hot, sometime whiny, dog revering real estate agent, is returning to the Bravo show that gifts us with Robin Leach style California real estate porn. He’s the Malibu Ken of beach front property, and I cannot wait for his homecoming and the new season in general. Let’s be honest, Madison is beyond fabulous, and Josh Flagg is adorably neurotic. Don’t forget Josh Altman‘s ego, which is endearing when he lets down his guard, and the baby faces and beautiful accents of James Harris and David Parnes. Add it all together… and you have got a recipe for reality success!
We’ve already devoted time to the latter, so let’s focus on the former, shall we? It’s no secret that the ridiculous talent and genuine friendships shared among the dancers is the draw of the reality series…much more so than the asinine fighting between Abby and their mothers. The girls’ successes should be highlighted in light of all the craziness surrounding the show’s drama. It’s an exciting–and lucrative–time to be a former ALDC competitor!
