I’d say congratulations are in order, dear readers! Cheers to each one of you for making it through yet another extra-long season of Dance Moms with the always controversial Abby Lee Miller at the helm. Last night was the last reunion before Abby packs her bags and opens an ALDC franchise in Los Angeles. As always, executive producer Jeff Collins rules the sofa roost, but this time, the once silver fox has died his hair a special shade of carrot and gotten himself a spray tan. Fame, y’all!
Abby is the first one who joins Jeff on the stage, and he brings up her now contentious relationship with Holly. Abby feels Holly’s jealousy runs deep, and she believes that her dancers are a success because every last one of them is chasing Maddie’s fame. Nia’s turn will come, she admonishes. Jeff summons Holly to the couch, and Jeff shows footage of Abby lying about saying Maddie and Kalani were the only ones who would ever book jobs. Holly cites her frustrations stemming from Abby attacking the children to retaliate when she’s upset with the mothers. All Holly wants is for her daughter to be treated with respect, but Abby doesn’t care to try to repair their relationship. Holly has several fond memories with Abby that she holds dear, but Abby remains stone-faced. Thankfully, the girls take the stage to perform their Stomp the Yard group number inspired by Orange is the New Black. More dancing, less mindless bickering please!
It’s hard to imagine that Maddie Ziegler is only 12-years-old. The Dance Moms star has already experienced more than most of us do in a lifetime thanks to the popularity of her reality show and a decade-long dedication to dance. Despite all the upsides of fame (dancing with Sia at the Grammy Awards!), Maddie admits it’s also impacted her life in unfortunate ways – and sometimes she just wants to be a normal tween.
Anyone who has ever watched Dance Moms can attest that Maddie seems very mature for her age. In fact, for this in-depth interview with the Telegraph UK, Maddie is by herself with the interviewer as Melissa “pops in and out of the office” in between caring for MacKenzie who was sick back at their temporary apartment. (Maddie was also accompanied by a security guard who waited in the hall). Maddie is TWELVE!
We can’t talk about part three of the reunion and not talk about NeNe Leakes. About the breakdown, Claudia shared, “When NeNe walked off, initially I wasn’t sure what was going on to be honest. I did notice she seemed to be trembling, so I knew she was definitely feeling something very real to her. I just didn’t know what had set her off at that point. So at first I was a little taken back. I had never seen her cry, but we are all human and everyone has their breaking point.”
Kenya Moore‘s life is filled with more holes than Swiss cheese. At this point I don’t know what to believe, except delusions twirls on and on and on…
Kenya, has been boasting of falling in love with James, a man she met on Millionaire Matchmaker, today says that she found out he was married – a week after the show aired! All very interesting considering that in the time since MM aired until just last week, Kenya has consistently claimed to be in a relationship with James, even describing how she was keeping it out of the media!
And just last week, the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star even went so far as to post a photo of herself wearing an engagement ring, being coy and writing “Anything can happen in Vegas” before deleting the photo.
Melissa Gorga is doing some regular Real Housewives maintenance – updating the old boob job!
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star recently got glam to go under the knife and replace her aging implants after 13 years. Melissa posted a photo on instagram asking fans to wish her luck for the procedure, which she claims was doctor mandated.
Brandi said she was “not shocked” by Kim‘s arrest. “But, at the same time, I’ve never seen her drink or do a drug,” she added. “If she wants to get help… it’s on her… I can’t say to somebody, ‘You need to get help.’ Because they’re going to go, ‘F–k you. You have a problem. I do not have a problem.’ I was her friend, and I witnessed odd behavior, but I never saw her do anything.”
