Love & Hip Hop Atlanta saw a dip in viewership on Monday night, with 3.435 million watching Mimi struggle, but VH1’s ratings powerhouse still won the night. The random Thursday night episode did not fare well, however, with only 2.158 million tuning in. But guess what… it still won the night!
Can it get any worse? Last night’s episode of Dance Moms certainly proved that it could. Abby Lee Miller was quite the whirlwind of negativity with her new competition team while the original moms–and dancers–dealt with the consequences. Not surprisingly, Christi has nicknames for the new mothers, including Christ-y (for the Jesus loving mom with a penchant for pot stirring and physical violence), Purple Haired Dud and Count Stalkula. I won’t remember those, but kudos to crazy Christi for her creativity. Abby opens with the pyramid (glad that some things never change), as Abby touts Maddie for leading the newbies to victory. Sadly for Abby, she hates the new moms as much as she can’t stand the veterans.
Christ-y, I mean Christy, isn’t happy to be one of Abby’s customers because Abby hasn’t yet heard the saying that the customer is always right. Abby needs the new team to serve as replacements for when her original stars have auditions in Los Angeles and New Work and Farmville. Maddie admits that she likes the new team, but she’d rather be with her friends. Before revealing the pyramid, Abby bad mouths Kira for pulling Kalani from the team so she could go be with her boyfriend. I guess that’s Lifetime speak for she’s no longer needed for a story line.
You’d think after enduring one of the longest and most drama filled seasons of Dance Moms (and that’s saying a lot for Abby Lee Miller and her nemeses!), we’d have a longer break between installments, right? Oh, who am I kidding? I can’t wait for the madness to return on Tuesday!
This go-round, Abby seems to have grown tired of pitting poor Maddie against all of her teammates, and she’s now focused on putting her original team against her new group of competitors. You know what that means…veteran, snarky, territorial moms versus new, fame hungry moms who have seen first hand what they need to do to make themselves–and their children–a household name, no matter what the cost. It certainly makes for entertaining television, doesn’t it? (until Child Protective Services gets involved)
Check out the trailer of the upcoming premiere below!
Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket! Geez, Lifetime! I guess when a network finds its niche, audience, and all-around tongue-wagging cash cow, it will run with it. And twirl. And plie, And pirouette. Abby Lee Miller is becoming quite the brand.
I thought the Dance Moms franchise had been spread thin, what with Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition and the new Abby's Studio Rescue, but clearly I was wrong. I can admit it. However, I can predict that the mothers of the original show are going to have a lot to say about this news! Holy spin-off!
Who wouldn't want to take parenting advice from Abby Lee Miller? The recently engagedDance Moms star is often revered for the wonderful way she treats the children in her studio. Oh, wait…well, regardless, Abby thinks she knows best, and now she's got a book coming out to prove it.
Harper Collins will be releasing Everything I Learned About Life, I Learned In Dance Class on July 15. Perfect beach read, right? Not so much! In the book, Abby explains her tough love mentality and shares her success stories. You won't be surprised to learn that her eleven-year-old protege Maddie Ziegler penned the book's forward.
Well, it's official! Abby Lee Miller is engaged. RT, dibs on recapping the Dance Moms spin-off that's sure to surround planning her big day! After months of speculation and vast amounts of Twitter love thrown back and forth, the villainous star of Lifetime's hit has confirmed that, yes, she is in fact betrothed to Michael Padula.
Wait, who? Well, according to his Twitter, Michael is an Italian actor, "voiceover king," and TV host who has a penchant for tweeting–and retweeting–all things Dance Moms. If I didn't know better, I'd say the handsome(ish) mystery man was just a major super fan…until I came across tweets about how beautiful Abby is even when her hair is up in a towel and how much he loves her.
Abby Lee Miller, the star of Lifetime's Dance Moms, has become famous for her aggressive — I say mean, controlling and detrimental to children — style of teaching dance. And Maks has always been the bad boy of DWTS. So when she has some harsh words for front-runners Maks and Meryl Davis, Maks immediately shot back, telling Erin Andrews, ""I really don't care for anything she has to say."
Was anyone surprised that was his response? Really?
