Abby Lee Miller was back with a vengeance on last night's premiere of Dance Moms. At least they revamped the opener though, right? At the studio, Abby corrals the girls and their mothers for an announcement. Abby congratulates her Nationals winners while taking passive aggressive digs at everyone. She reveals that she will be holding open auditions in Atlanta, Orlando, and New York. Everyone is replaceable, y'all!
Chloe is at the bottom of the pyramid since Christi made such a scene with Leslie on Bourbon Street during Nationals and Abby gave them the boot. Christi hopes to focus more on her daughter's dancing and less on the mama drama this year. We'll see how long that lasts! Chloe apologizes to her team and promises to work her hardest. Peyton follows Chloe on the bottom for the same reason. Nia is the first actual Nationals participant to be on the bottom, followed by Brooke. Nia looks totally crestfallen, and Holly is upset. Nia is at every class and every extra practice. She is working her little bum off! Brooke is chastised for missing one class while attending New York Fasion Week (really?), and sister Paige is last on the middle tier since things just aren't clicking. Is it just me, or are these new head shots just too much? Mackenzie is next for being second in division at Nationals. Kendall is one spot away from the top of the pyramid when Abby announces that there's been a mistake. She switches out Nia's headshot for Kendall's. Jill is livid. Kendall tries not to cry as Abby complains about Kendall missing a week of booty camp to go on vacation. Maddie is on the top. Surprise, surprise!
Well, despite your best efforts to change the channel every time Bethenny Frankel's talk show comes on television, it looks like the show will back for a second season. Guess what? You're not the only ones not watching…the ratings have been consistently bad.
However, Bethenny, as you know, doesn't leave quietly, and many insiders are speculating that she'll return despite all the negativity that has plagued the show. Of course it will.
This latest reality tv-related blind gossip item is short and sweet and could possibly be any number of reality TV kids! Check it out:
"This reality star offspring who is a minor wants out of the family show but apparently mom won't let her."
I have about three guesses for this one, but I'm strongly leaning toward one in particular. Give us your best guess as to which celebrity kiddo you think this might be! I'll be anxiously awaiting the reveal on this one and will be sure to pass it along as soon as it's up!
"This former B- list reality star is now a C- list celebrity. She managed to snag a magazine cover recently, but won't ever be invited back to the pages of the magazine. What was supposed to be a two hour shoot took two days because of her demands. She kept everyone waiting at one point because one of the production assistants brought regular limes instead of key limes for her water. One hour later he was back and she made him squeeze the juice out until it was the right taste for her. She took that one sip and never touched the drink again that day. Two days of this. She was on a very popular cable reality show a few years ago."
Reality TV stars and legal issues are like siamese twins! This year several stars dealt with legal problems from bankruptcies and foreclosures to lawsuits and arrests.
Without a doubt Real Housewives of New Jersey stars take the crown when it comes to most time spent in court – like a lot, a lot. But the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County are not far behind them! Of course it wasn't just the Housewives who were getting hauled to court or busted by the IRS or mugshotted; several other shows represented well and held their own!
Below is the 2013 legal round up.
Above, Jenelle Evans confuses a jail cell with a spa and thinks it's a place you visit periodically to get away from it all! The Teen Mom 2 star, whose antics practically caused a cancelation for the show, racked up a whopping FIVE mugshots this year! #CheckMyCharges #GoogleMyMugshots
