After allowing Jill to watch over Kalani in Los Angeles, on last night’s episode Kira returned to Dance Moms. Is it bad I’d forgotten she’d left? She and Ashlee pretend that the other doesn’t exist while they speak horribly about each other just a few feet away from the other. Jill is happy to have Kira back as she considers Ashlee to be a giant bully. Oh really? Abby Lee Miller is in rare form, cheering for last week’s group win. This week isn’t a pyramid, and Abby plans to go backwards. The sisters Ziegler are sharing the top spot…Maddie for winning her solo, and MacKenzie for garnering a scholarship to the Pittsburgh chapter of the ALDC. There’s still a studio there? Nia, Kalani, Kendall, and Brynn share the second tier, and Abby shares they are evenly placed. JoJo is on the bottom because someone has to be.
At this week’s competition, Abby will be entering two trios which means one girl be dancing. Abby crowns both Brynn and Maddie as the captains of their trio, making the choice who will be part of their routine. Jill interrupts to determine how Abby chose the leaders, and Ashlee tries to quickly quiet her. Brynn picks Kalani and MacKenzie while Maddie chooses Kendall and JoJo. Nia tries to pretend that it doesn’t bother her, but she’s clearly crushed. Abby promises that if Brynn’s solo wins, she’s secured a spot on the ALDC team. The group routine this week will be based on a commercial she has signed up the girls to team, and the girls cheer at the return of Todrick. The mothers are a tad wary. Abby doesn’t often play well–or collaborate–with others. The moms know that Abby can’t focus on more than one task (if that), so if she’s freaking out about the commercial, the competition routines are sure to suffer.
Last night the ladies of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills went on a journey! First they hitched a ride on Yolanda Foster‘s journey and they traveled to the center of Lymes, past the lemon groves and through the gardens of delusion and deceit, landing themselves at Cipriani. Afterwards they spent 24 hours on a plane hurtling through the night skies to a faraway land where they slept with the sharks, but alas my favorite part was Lisa Vanderpump putting on Kyle Ricahrds‘ signature kaftan and looking so damn good she put Kyle to unholy shame!
After 14 months living deprived of earthly comforts like concealer, Yolanda has finally rejoined the living. Is it me or every time Yolanda provides a ‘fact’ about her ‘journey’ the math inflates? I see someone studied Econ at the Federal Reserve!
First they ask Brandi how things have been going since we saw her last. It involves a whole lot of cardboard boxes. “All I do is move, move, move no matter what! Since last year’s RHOBH reunion, which was incredibly emotionally draining, I’ve moved not once but twice. I continue to defend myself against a defamation of character lawsuit filed by a fellow ex-Housewife from a different city. My two boys are growing into little men and are doing not just good but AMAZING. We have a new full-time roommate–my best friend and former hairdresser known to many as Mark, who is now transitioning into a woman and wants to be known as Mia.” Brandi also shared that she stays busy with her many projects – a new book, her podcast, wine, etc.
The problems of Kardashian Beauty continue to be spackled on thicker than a Kardashian’s contour. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars are facing a $200 million dollar lawsuit from investors who claim the struggling Kardashian Beauty isn’t being properly supported and endorsed by Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian.
Hillair Capital Management shelled out $10 million dollars to help save Kardashian Beauty after the previous investor went belly-up. They expected Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe – the sisters behind the line – to promote the brand via social media. I mean how could they find the time in between tweeting pictures of themselves naked or posing with begrudging celebrities?!
