I’m not going to lie. I had to focus on my breathing during last night’s Dance Moms so as not to pop a vein. These poor girls work so hard, and they are truly supportive friends. However, Abby Lee Miller and the crazy moms do everything possible to take the fun out of what they like to do most. I was really, really disturbed by it.
It’s pyramid time once again, but Kelly and Paige are glaringly absent. Abby Lee thinks it’s horrendous that Kelly hasn’t filled her in on the status of Paige’s foot injury. Bottom line: they should be there for the pyramid. Abby lectures the girls about the importance of listening to her…if Paige had listened, she may not have hurt herself! Christi can’t believe Abby is blaming Paige. It was an accident. Abby praises last week’s soloists and announces they’ll be competing in Philly next. Paige is on the bottom thanks to her “accident” along with MacKenzie and Chloe. Chloe lands on the bottom because she didn’t have a solo that makes sense. Brooke and Nia are on the second tier, with Maddie once again on the top thanks to getting the highest score from the judges. MacKenzie is granted a solo, although she won’t be in the group dance. Brooke and Maddie both get a solo. Chloe and Paige will be dancing a duet. Chloe is thrilled at the prospect of dancing with her best friend.
Last week on Bachelor Pad, Reid Rosenthal tried to convince the ladies to eliminate Ed Swiderski. Even though Sarah Newlon just hooked up with Ed, she went with the plan. Then she immediately went to Ed to apologize for voting against him. Unfortunate for Reid, Jamie Otis chose to keep a drunken Ed around Bachelor Pad, probably for the entertainment value, so Reid’s plan failed.
Ed, possibly the most unscrupulous member of the cast, questions why he’s on Bachelor Pad. “The game is all about influence, perception, and flat out lying,” Ed says. “I don’t like lying.” I’ll give you a second to digest that statement and meet you after the jump.
Oh, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta! You rose to a new high last night…or did you sink to a new low? It’s so very hard to tell!
Stevie J. and Mimi Faust take their precious daughter to the park. I initially think that Mimi is overwhelmed with Stevie’s attempt at family time, but Mimi doesn’t trust him as far as she can throw him. I’d say “good for her” but I doubt this will last long. Stevie proposes that he, Mimi, and Joseline all go to counseling together. What? He has some major cajones. Of course, he could sell milk to a cow, and he has Mimi considering the session.
After Ang threw financial caution to the wind on last week’s episode, I couldn’t wait to see what Big Ang had to offer last night! This show has been ebbing and flowing all season in my opinion. Fun times, boring times, over-the-top times, and more dull times. I love Ang, but I need more drama. Does anyone agree? Of course, I didn’t want said drama to be the arrest of her son A.J.
Ang’s house is finally getting furnished. She actually paid $5,000 to have her sofa upholstered in black patent leather. I can only imagine how sticky and noisy that will be for the people who are brave enough to sit on it. Comfy! As more furniture is brought in, her house is looking more and more like what I imagine a porn set would look like. Neil just watches in dismay as his wife barks orders. Ang is hoping that now that the house is complete, A.J. will want to move back home with her.
What can I say about last night’s Mob Wives Chicago? There was a lot of bleeping, that’s for sure! These ladies are constantly saying they want to have civil, non-confrontational discussions, but if a string of cuss words and screaming at the top of of their lungs is civil, I’d hate to see uncivil. Oh wait, that was two weeks ago…Regardless, the entire episode was dramastically entertaining (see what I did there? ;))!
Renee Fecarotta Russo‘s daughter Giana comes over to discuss Giana’s recent trip to visit her father in prison. Renee is concerned about what the pair could have discussed. Giana tells her mother that her parents have too totally different stories about how they acted in the past. Giana doesn’t know who to believe. Her mother tells her that her father was a deadbeat who never made any attempt at a relationship with her, while her father tells her that Renee did everything in her power to keep the two apart, including threatening to call the cops on him. Renee tells Giana that her dad is lying, but her facial expressions seem to tell another story. Renee claims that she may have kept things from her daughter to protect her, but she never lies to him. Giana doesn’t want to hear it, and when Renee accuses her ex of lying about having cancer, Giana can’t even handle the conversation. Renee plans to figure out why her ex is trying to sabotage her relationship with Giana.
Well, that was a hot mess of ugly wasn’t it? On last night’s episode of Project Runway the designers were required to find inspiration for a red carpet look from some sort of new Lexus (i.e. shameless product plug which I ignored because it has nothing to do with fashion). If all of that wasn’t exciting enough, they had to work in teams of two (aka: drama-bitchest extraordinaire.).
After making googly eyes at the car and learning the body color must be featured in the design, there’s a twist! They have to design for a “celebrity”!
And not just any “celebrity” – a former PR alum. All of which but Laura Bennett came from the much less exciting Lifetime years of the series. All of the “celebrities” were women, which was good all for everyone but Raul and Alicia, who have nary any experience in the evening gown department. Oopsie!
The guest judge was… Oh wait, I forgot because her critique went like this ‘I don’t like that. The Emmy’s? Never been! I wore something like that once. Oooh, shiny!’ Can’t they get any people actually involved in the fashion business to participate in this show or has it truly lost all credibility?
Since nobody cares about anything but the clothes, Reality Tea is providing you a snap-judgement photocap. C’mon you know that’s how you watch the show, too!
Shane is everything in the Big Brother house this week – HoH, PoV, and RSM (resident stud muffin). Shane had a secret alliance with Frank, so he targeted Janelle Pierzina‘s team for eviction. Janelle‘s sexual prowess gave her an edge in the (disturbing) coaches challenge. Janelle’s win saved Wil from the chopping block. With Wil off the table, Shane nominated Joe and Ashley for eviction. Whoa, shocker! Everyone expected one person from Team Janelle and one person from Mike Boogie Malin‘s team. The hamsters quickly scurried away from the nomination ceremony to discuss, celebrate, scheme, and/or plan their next move. Except for Danielle. She’s a challenged skinny hamster. She simply found her way to the RSM’s bed and refused to leave. I say “skinny,” because if I don’t say anything, she’ll assume I’m calling her a fat hamster. And I can’t deal with her brand of crazy today.
Janelle worked her magic and Ian worked his social awkwardness, leaving Shane feeling uneasy about Frank. Britney Haynes‘s, like, on a constant 2-day delay in the Big Brother house, but she eventually caught up to Shane’s thinking. At the PoV ceremony, Shane made a bold (stupid? it’s up for interpretation) move. Shane denominated Ashley and named Frank as the replacement nominee. Frank knew it was coming, but Boogie and Ian, who was blamed for the shake up, were blindsided. Shane told Frank that he wasn’t the target, the move was simply a numbers game to ensure Joe‘s eviction. Frank remains optimistic; however, the hamsters are counting down the hours until they can evict him.
Who is evicted – Frank or Joe? Will the coaches enter the game? (as if we really had a choice)
