How much longer is this show going to be on? I remember that the last season of Dance Moms seemed to go on forever, but I honestly don't know how much more I can take of Abby Lee Miller. Last night, she gave Chloe a bit of a reprieve while she focused most of her ugliness on poor Kendall. These girls are not okay with this abuse. Sure, there are a few scenes here and there that make me think parts of the episode are totally scripted, but Kendall's tears were real. The defeat in Chloe's eyes was real. The look on Nia's face that made it quite clear she couldn't stand her dance teacher (loved it!)…that was real.
Before the pyramid, Holly invites Abby and the other mother's to come to her book-signing party for her affirmations. Abby reminds Nia that dance should come first and insinuates she should get credit for ideas behind the book. Abby wonders if her affirmation "silence is golden" will apply when Holly learns that Nia is at the bottom of the pyramid. That's the face I'm talking about, Miss Nia! Kendall follows, and while Abby couldn't find anything wrong with Kendall's performance she wants to punish her for her mother questioning why she wasn't featured in the group dance. Maddie is third from the bottom because she wasn't at the competition, but Abby is still proud of the job she was doing in L.A. Am I wrong or does Abby usually put other dancers who are absent in the last spot? Chloe is in the third spot, and Christi can't believe that Abby gives her daughter even the smallest amount of praise. MacKenzie is second with Kalani topping the pyramid.

ABC revealed the season 18 cast of Dancing with the Stars yesterday. The cast consists mostly of athletes, pop stars, and uber popular 90s sitcom stars. Then there's NeNe Leakes. Then there's a real [movie] star. Bloop.
New this season are Erin Andrews, who has replacedBrook Burke as Tom Bergeron's co-host, and the Switch Up twist. For the first time ever, the stars will dance with new pro partners – chosen by America's votes – at some point in the season.
Personally, I'm not excited about either addition, Erin or the twist that reeks of desperation, but oh well. Also – noTristan MacManus. 🙁 Someone at ABC hates me. Anyway, check out the cast photos and bios below, as well as a few candid shots of NeNe and Tony.
Marlo Hampton is a famewhore of the first order, but she insists some of her television friendships are still real. After breaking up with NeNe Leakes in a dramatic fashion, Marlo hitched her wagon to the ever-tricky Kenya Moore and a match made in frienemy heaven was born! Although Marlo clarifies they are not besties
Despite moving on, Marlo says she still wants answers from NeNe on how things went wrong between them. And she feels used and abused by the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
“I don’t feel I could have done anything different…I’m not a child. I can talk to who I want to talk to. I can be friends with who I want to be friends to as long as I’m loyal to you,” Marlo informed Sister2Sister. “I do definitely feel the fans do deserve to hear both sides. I would like to definitely sit down and talk to [NeNe]. They deserve to see what’s really going on. I wanna ask her myself. I’m confused. I really don’t understand."
Joyce Giraud is switching teams on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after watching the episodes for herself. Joyce took to her blog to chat about the unfairness of things and to apologize for being MIA while she dealt with her family's loss.
Joyce shared how her eyes were opened after watching this week's show, "Both my husband and I felt horrible when we watched this week's episode because we didn't know Lisa and Ken had already given an answer on the beach regarding Brandi's accusations about the tabloids. Back then, I thought Lisa should at least give an answer. Personally I've always thought it's best to address problems instead of walking away. This is something I spoke about with Lisa when we got back to LA."
Well this is rich. I don't know why I always assume that reality stars will learn from their past behavior and grow. I'm always proven wrong. I suppose that in the event they did become better people, they'd become less entertaining. Case in point? Renee Graziano.
The Mob Wives star didn't exhibit the most glowing portrayal on the most recent season, often turning violent on co-star Natalie Guercio at the drop of a hat…or the word "delicious." Renee also talked a lot of smack about her best friend's wife Alicia DiMichele Garofalo, and it doesn't appear that she's going to stop anytime soon! I guess if she can her name in the tabloids, she doesn't care what she has to say to do it!
