Last night's Dance Moms was a lesson in democracy. If I had to cast my ballot for most ridiculous dance teacher, Abby Lee Miller would certainly get my vote!
It's pyramid time, and MacKenzie is on the bottom followed by Brooke, who, according to Abby, needs to figure out if she really wants to be a dancer. Chloe is also on the lowest tier, with Abby blaming her for her trio placing second. Kendall rounds out the bottom for being part of the second loser trio. The last place spot in the middle of the pyramid goes to Maddie for—you guessed it!–being part of the trio. Paige is third on the pyramid because Kelly has gotten good at not sparring with Abby. Nia is in second place for flying under the radar. Newbie Asia graces the top of the pyramid.
A crying MacKenzie complains of feeling dizzy when Asia's name is announced, and Abby makes her sit out of the group number. Asia is MacKenzie's size equal, so with MacKenzie out, Abby is unsure as to whether she'll actually dance in the group dance which has the conservatives facing off against the liberals in a politically themed number. Both Asia and Maddie get solos. Abby mixes things up by adding Chloe into the solo competition. Maddie's solo is called "I'm Trying" while Chloe's is "Am I Here To Stay?" Nice double meanings there!
Following the tragic passing of Shain Gandee, the 21-year-old star of the show BUCKWILD, MTV has decided to pull the plug on the short lived redneck reality series.
Last week MTV announced they were temporarily suspending filming for season 2 to let cast members heal. Filming was to possibly resume after Shain's funeral. However a network source confirms to Deadline that the show is formally and officially kaput in the wake of several scandals and the unfortunate passing of Shain.
I'm thinking about using my legal and blogging backgrounds to start a special kind of celebrity-inspired law school. Contracts, torts, even civil procedure could be worlds more exciting if you're studying cases based in tabloid craziness…and goodness knows there are enough celebrity legal spats to provide copious amounts of study materials. I specifically remember studying a case in my wills and trusts class which involved a troubled stripper turned Guess model as she vied for her much older husband's estate after his passing. Ring any bells? I'd even invite Harvey Weinstein to be a guest lecturer.
Of course, all 1Ls would have to takeKardashian Law. Think about it…the class could cover everything from employment to divorce to defamation. Kris Humphries could teach part of the course in his off-season! Speaking of Kris, we've got some news on his divorce proceedings from Kim. Also, if you recall, Kris Jenner recently filed a lawsuit against her ex husband's widow Ellen Kardashian for copyright infringement, claiming that Ellen sold portions of Robert Kardashian, Sr.'s private journals which were willed exclusively to his children. This family is a plethora of legal insanity, and I have more to share with you after the jump!
Another day, another court hearing which involves Teen Mom 2's favorite wild child. This time around Jenelle Evans wasn't the one facing the judge. She was there to watch her on-again-off-again husband Courtland Rogers as he faced the four assault charges and two battery charges that Jenelle filed against him in January.
After Jenelle and Courtland's quickie marriage and pregnancy announcement, the couple's relationship went drastically downhill with allegations of abuse and infidelity and drugs. Sadly, Jenelle suffered a miscarriage after the assault claims. Somehow, though, those crazy kids are still trying to make it work. Good for them, right?
Tonight is the series premiere for Kandi Burruss' new show, The Kandi Factory. Each episode Kandi will take two aspiring artists and craft their talent, stage presence, performance, and skill as they compete to record a song.
Last year Bravo did a sample of the show which ended up being the most-watched first time premiere in Bravo's history. Of course, Kandi's show quickly became a full-time thing after that. Below are photos and bios for tonight's contestants along with a video preview for tonight's episode!
This week on Dancing with the Stars, the 10 remaining contestants dedicate their song selection and dance to the best year of their life. Cue the water works, cute kids, and temporary fiance, please! Also, the contestants perform a 15-second solo during their routine.
As always, at the top of the show, the stars and pros descend the Dancing with the Stars staircase, which gives us our first glimpse at costumes, dance order, and Mark's weekly make out session with the camera. Oh no! Pro dancer Gleb Savchenko comes down the stars alone. Where is our belovedLisa Vanderpump?
Lisa was diagnosed with a "viral infection with fever and swollen glands" after fainting last week. "She sat out rehearsal. She's getting some rest right now," host Tom Bergeron explains. "We'll leave it up to her whether she's going to dance tonight."
Kim Zolciak will be back to traumatize us next week. Oh how I've missed my television sans wigs, cigs, and mistresses on an egotrip! Luckily for me I will not long await the return of classless wig porn talk, fast food binges, and the bellowing war cry of "SWEEEEETIEEEE!"
Don't Be Tardy premieres with back-to-back episodes next Tuesday! Bravo just released the official press photos of Lady Wigs and her strands of terror.
