What happened on last night's Dance Moms should have stayed on last night's Dance Moms…okay, so that didn't really work, but you get the Vegas reference, right? Abby Lee Miller is probably upset that her behavior didn't stay in Vegas, because, dare I say, she actually showed a glimmer of humanity and emotion about her fallout with Kelly.
I can't say I'm excited to see the pyramid back in action after such a nice hiatus. The moms aren't satisfied with Abby's nonexistent reason for her past absences, but Abby doesn't care. She didn't want to be around people who treat her negatively. Kelly and Abby get into it over who did or didn't make a spectacle in Orlando when someone should have (or shouldn't have) moved seats. When Kelly calls her out for acting like Kathy, Abby says that it wasn't Kathy's behavior that always rattled her, it was her reaction to Kathy's behavior that rattled her. Has someone been doing some self-reflection?
Before Abby unveils the girls' ranking in the pyramid, Holly questions how she made her decision given that she's skipped the last two competitions. Duh, score cards! Paige is at the bottom because she's Kelly's daughter, but also because she needs to be a more technical dancer. Brooke follows her sister for her recent fourth place solo. Nia is third from the bottom…not because she doesn't try, but because it's just not clicking for her. Kendall rounds out the bottom for being inconsistent and performing better in rehearsal than competition. MacKenzie is on the tail end of the second tier for careless mistakes, followed by Asia who is improving each week. Maddie takes the second spot because Abby thinks she needs to setting her goals higher. Chloe has finally made it back to the top of the pyramid.
Tamra, Eddie and Tamra's daughter were spotted hanging out in the hotel pool and showing off their Cut Fitness bodies in a bikini and swim trunks. The newlyweds were also photographed doing a little shopping together in South Beach.
'Tamra's OC Wedding' makes its debut next Monday night. Are you planning to tune in? It's only a few episodes, so it's not a huge season-long commitment. As far as we know at this point, it will be three episodes, while NeNe's wedding special is reportedly ten episodes.

Drama on the high seas by Bravo will continue to float on!
Below Deck, whose freshman season was a surprise hit for the network, has unsurprisingly been renewed! Deadline reported that the second season is already being prepped by production company 51 Minds. Unfortunately Bravo is not bringing back the cast in it's entirety. The show is currently casting for their second season, advertising that they are searching for some "additional cast".
The posting reveals they are looking for: "additional staff members to work on the boat and appear on the show. We are currently looking for Captains, Mates, Chefs. Chief Stews, Stews, Engineers and Deck Hands."
Real Housewives of Miami held steady at 1.3 million. Meanwhile, Bravo's surprise (to me) hit Below Deck attracted its largest audience yet, with 1.75 million viewers. That's up 200,000 from last week's 1.55 million.
Finally, 1.810 million viewers checked out the series premiere of Teen Mom 3, but only 1.554 million stuck around for the second episode. I'm not surprised roughly 250,000 viewers checked out. Two hours of any new series is overkill.
I don't consider myself naive usually. Sure, I have my blonde moments, but I have to say I am disappointed in myself that it never crossed my mind that the Kardashian kover-up krew could be perpetuating the rumors of Lamar Odom'sdrug abuse.
Now, don't get me wrong, I wasn't born yesterday. Lamar is no angel (I'm assuming he does suffer from addiction and a penchant for bedding women who aren't his wife), but it's the deluge in which the gossip is coming that sounds a lot like Kris Jenner is trying to make him seem like a total asshat. If he does have serious problems, he needs help, not a public shaming…although we all seem to be hoping it works for Miley. She can't be tamed, though.
Radar sources share that Lamar “absolutely believes Khloe’s family has been leaking stories to the tabloid press about his drug use, and his trip to rehab last year. Khloe has been very private about Lamar’s drug addiction, as she had done for the past year."
Believe it or not hour number two ends with one of these awe-inspiring couples becoming engaged to be married. All together now – seriously?!?
Mackenzie talks to a friend about her relationship woes. She briefly wonders if Josh resents her for pursuing cheer after she demanded he quit rodeo he put bull riding on hold. Crazy talk! Mackenzie comes to the conclusion that she and Josh fight too much because they don't spend enough time together. She plans to ask him to move in with her.
Cayla wisely questions Mackenzie's thought process. She reasons, "I know moving in is risky, but it's got to be better than living apart."
It turns out I wasn't the only one completely repulsed by Keeping Up with the Kardashians' planned episode revolving around eating placentas. The show took a big hit in viewers this week, dropping from last week's 2.74 million down to 2.2 million this week!
Real Housewives of New Jersey saw a slight increase this week, hitting 2.38 million watchers. Maybe all of the dark family feuding finally coming to an end will start reel back in some of the fans who previously jumped ship – even though it's boring some of us to tears.
Sister Wives also enjoyed a small bump this week. Kody and his hair-em reached 2.34 million viewers on Sunday night – almost reaching premiere numbers of 2.5 million.
