Dance Moms

dance moms kelly abby fight

Well that didn’t take very long! Just a little over a year and a half ago, Abby Lee Miller fell victim to an atrocious attack which was not in the least bit provoked by Miller herself. Nope. Not one bit.

I’m sure all of you Dance Moms viewers (I hesitate to say fans, as I feel y’all, like me, watch out of sheer horror and weird fascination) remember the episode that aired in November of 2013 when Kelly Hyland had had enough of Abby’s hatefulness towards her two daughters. As she pointed in Abby’s face, screaming, Abby retaliated by acting as if she was going to bite of Kelly’s finger. If you need a refresher, I’ve posted a clip.


Reality TV Viewer Numbers Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion

The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills scored a season high with 2.269 million viewers tuning in for part one of the reunion. The cast trip to Manila on Real Housewives of Atlanta attracted 2.978 million viewers.

Shahs of Sunset, Dance Moms, and Little Women L.A., and Little Women New York remained steady, while Keeping Up with the Kardashians (down to 1.891 million) and Teen Mom (fell to 1.477 million) lost viewers. Southern Charm is slowly inching its way to a million viewers but not quite there yet. The less said about Real Housewives of Melbourne‘s numbers, the better. Look below to see how your shows are doing.


Nickelodeon's 28th Annual Kid’s Choice Awards

As a native Pennsylvanian, I must admit the latest Abby Lee Miller news is making me do a happy dance – a dance that would not likely make the cut in Abby Lee’s eyes, I’m sure. But a happy dance nonetheless! Because, my friends: Abby is moving to LA! And taking her studio – and her show – with her.

According to TMZ, Dance Moms star Abby Lee is “bringing her east coast, in-your-face style to the west coast … and setting up shop in L.A.” She’ll be sharing the same studio that Dancing with the Stars uses for their rehearsals while she waits for her very own studio space to be completed. Much like the Red Room in 50 Shades of Grey, Abby’s new studio will surely be tricked out with the torture devices and pleather-ish decor that reflect her “particular taste.”

Thanks for tuning in to episode 1,000,314 of this season’s Dance Moms. You, like myself, must be a total glutton for punishment! Abby Lee Miller was up to her old tricks again, although this time she wasn’t yelling. Instead she was incessantly praising her star Maddie. Don’t get me wrong, I think Maddie is ridiculously talented and it’s not her fault her teacher alienates her with favoritism. However, it was a bit odd given that Maddie wasn’t present on last night’s episode to receive said praise. After a successful competition last week, the girls are missing Maddie who is performing on SNL with Sia. Melissa hates that she isn’t in New York with her daughter but she has to be there to support her other daughter…what’s her name? Oh, yeah, MacKenzie. I may just call her Maddie’s sister to make it easier. After all, that seems to be how everyone else refers to her. 

Abby congratulates the team on a clean sweep and cites that it’s quite a big deal she’s chosen to be in Philly with them instead of in the Big Apple with Maddie. Jessalyn is excited to be returning to LA in a week now that JoJo has a team jacket. What a tease! The previews insinuated they were heading back to L.A. this week! How long are they trying to make this season? Is it lasting until 2018? Abby reminds her team that they are pretty much nothing without Maddie, but she’ll be interested to see how they fare in Maddie’s absence. She’s guessing not very well…


Reality TV Viewer Numbers Teen Mom OG

The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and an impressive 1.952 million viewers watched the return of Maci, Amber, Farrah, and Catelynn on Teen Mom OG.

The season finale of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills attracted 1.883 million, bringing the season five average to 1.79 million. For comparison’s sake, season four averaged 1.826 million viewers. Part one of the Little Women L.A. reunion garnered 1.126 million viewers, and 1.09 million stuck around to watch the series premiere of Little Women NY.

Also worth mentioning, a whopping 1.886 million tuned in to see Kenya Moore on Millionaire Matchmaker. See how your other shows fared the week below.


Dance Moms Maddie Nia Kalani

So remember years and year ago when Abby Lee Miller was just a teacher and Dance Moms was actually enjoyable to watch? Am I recalling it correctly, or have I clouded my memory with more positive thoughts in an effort to combat the negativity I have to watch now. It’s a total mind game. You know who else likes mind games? Sia. On last night’s episode, the world is finally introduced to this video. Many found it to be artistic, some found it to be highly inappropriate, but I was just happy to see Shia LeBeouf dancing around in a cage. People think he’s weird and controversial, but he’ll always be Louis Stevens to me. And now Louis Stevens is dancing around in a cage with Maddie the dirty wolf. What’s so wrong with that?

Maddie is excited about the video’s release, but she has a hard time explaining the concept to a confused Jill. Jill decides to just call it “artistic” and “open to interpretation” and be done with it. The other moms freak out when they learn that Kathy and her Candy Apples have assembled a brand new team of Abby’s “rejects” (Kira’s word, not mind), and they will be competing against the ALDC this week. Abby is livid, but she needs to focus on the pyramid. Kendall and Nia are on the bottom for not placing in their solos. JoJo, MacKenzie, and Kalani make up the second row for doing a wonderful job in their losing group number. Maddie maintains her place in the top spot. There will be no solos this week, as Abby wants to celebrate Maddie’s wonderful duet with Shia. She pairs Maddie with Kalani for one duet, and she pairs Kendall with JoJo for a Freaky Friday number. MacKenzie and Nia are partnered for a scary duet, which leads up to a murder in the group routine. 


Reality TV Viewer Numbers Keeping Up With the Kardashians

It’s time to roundup the reality TV viewer numbers for the week.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Keeping Up with the Kardashians is off to a great start, with 2.547 million tuning in for the season 10 premiere. For comparison’s sake, the season nine average was 2.3 million. Southern Charm returned this week, also, but to a much smaller audience of 871,000 viewers.

As for the shows that wrapped up this week, 1.466 million watched part two of the Vanderpump Rules reunion, 1.34 million tuned in to see the season finale of Little Women L.A., and 805,000 sat through the disaster that was the Mob Wives reunion. Take a look below to see how the rest of the shows are doing.

Is there an end in sight to this season of Dance Moms? I don’t know about y’all, but I’m Abby Lee Millered out! After a victory over the Candy Apples, the girls are actually looking forward to pyramid. Holly stills feels tension with the other friends, and JoJo laughs that Kathy exceeded her expectations when it came to crazy antics. The team is excited to have scored a win with a tried-and-true lyrical number, but Holly wants Abby to push the girls like she was doing before they went to Los Angeles. Lyrical is easy for them. Not for Nia, Abby snaps. Holly, I’m with you on how unfair all of this is, but it’s not going to change, and you’re just making it worse by expressing your opinion. It’s tragic all around. Jill speaks up to back Holly by saying that the girls are up to the task to do more challenging numbers. Well, Jill, those dances don’t win, and what’s more important in competition than winning?

Abby has come up with a great project for the girls. She’s asked all of the dancers to make a pros and cons list as to whether JoJo should be allowed a permanent spot on the team. Hearing it from her peers will make it more real for her. According to MacKenzie, JoJo is loud and crazy, but kind and hard-working. Jessalyn looks on proudly at her daughter’s resolve, but I think we’re one teammate down and JoJo’s already about to burst into tears. Maddie cites her ability to take direction but notes her timing issues. Nia claims she takes opportunities away from other girls who have been with the ALDC longer, and Kendall calls her respectful. Everyone says she’s either too loud or two crazy. Poor JoJo stares stone-faced only moving to wipe the tears before they can roll down her cheeks. Holly is proud of how JoJo is handling herself. In the end, JoJo earns an ALDC jacket and a spot on the team. Because the group routine was so strong, all of the girls are on the same pyramid level…except Maddie. She’s on top for her highest scoring solo. Maddie looks slightly uncomfortable for being singled out from the team, but Melissa beams.
