There's been so much nastiness from Abby Lee Miller on this season (the longest ever it seems!) of Dance Moms, I guess Lifetime wanted to bring back Kathy and the Candy Apples for some unrelated drama.
The episode begins with Abby revealing that she would be bringing in a new girl named Fallon who shined at one of her open auditions. Fallon and mom Cheryl arrive as Abby corrals all of the dancers and moms for the pyramid. Abby does introductions, and Cheryl's face looks like it can't move. The moms look defeated as usual, and Abby laments how difficult it is to build an entire new team. Kalani is out because mother Kira didn't abide by Abby's rules, which apparently is never say that your daughter can beat Maddie.
Lisa shared, "It has been a challenging experience. Week after week, I have viewed the vicious conversations between people I had believed to be friends. When I remember the innocence of the show four years ago, I would never have anticipated the level of cattiness and the bitchy, pack-like mentality that this experience has deteriorated into. The backstabbing of certain Housewives took it to a whole different level. It felt like I was drowning in a sea of negativity."
Season 9 kicks off April 14th. Friendships are put to the test, says Bravo, when the "quirky yet fearless" Shannon Beador and "opinionated beauty queen" Lizzie Rovsek blast onto the scene with fresh attitudes and bold opinions. The line for the Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, and Heather Dubrow pity party forms to the right, my friends. See ya on the left – I'm excited for new blood.
Meet Shannon and Lizzie, as well as a new friend of the housewivesDanielle Gregorio, and check out Real Housewives of Orange County's trailer and cast photos below.
Russ, a member of Aerosmith, tells us (via his rep) he was surprised to learn Carole had featured their relationship in A Widow's Guide To Sex and Dating because he was "under the impression they had agreed to keep the details of their personal lives… personal."
"Although Carole insisted we keep the intimate details of our relationship private, I understand why she’s spoken about it recently with such candor," Russ adds.
Scheana is done with Brandi's bull and called her out on her victim game via Twitter. Scheana vented, "Omg Brandi enough with the name calling! Try and show some class. It happened. It's over. We've all moved on. I'm not a whore or a hooker!"
As you recall on October 21 – which just happened to be Kim’s birthday – Kanye West rented out San Francisco’s AT&T Park. He brought a blindfolded Kim out onto the middle of the baseball field and in front of a 50-piece orchestra, proposed with a jaw-dropping 15 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring in front of close family and friends, hiding in the dugouts.
Behind the scenes – and as it appeared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians – Kris Jenner was pivotal in getting all the invited party guests to San Francisco, under cover and without Kim finding out.
Vicki is still with Brooks Ayers (although they reportedly officially broke up during filming) and he's still wreaking havoc with her family. Vicki also deals with daughter Briana, who is pregnant again, potentially moving to Oklahoma where husband Ryan is stationed. Tamra and Eddie juggle expanding their business and potentially expanding their family (via adoption). And custody drama.
