After a tumultuous but victorious competition in Chicago, Abby Lee’s dancers are back for more. Last night’s Dance Moms proved to be even more explosive, with Abby and Kelly once again butting heads. As much as she wanted to leave the studio, Kelly wants her daughters to get to enjoy dancing with her friends, so she has returned fully prepared to see her daughters on the bottom of the pyramid.
Kelly called it. Both Brooke and Paige are at the bottom of the pyramid. Not only will they not get solos, they have the word “probation” splashed across their head shots. Brooke thinks it’s unfair that she and her sister are being punished for an argument that their mother had with Abby. Chloe is also at the bottom for missing a rehearsal due to a doctor’s appointment. Christi is livid. MacKenzie is on the middle tier, with Abby citing she needs more ballet training. Nia joins her, and Abby praises her trio. Holly knows how excited this makes her daughter, so she is very proud. Maddie is once again back on top.
Thankfully, Teen Mom wasn’t nearly as depressing this week. Last week’s premiere of Teen Mom was a train wreck. This week, instead of weeping like a fool, I sat completely dumbfounded. These girls have come so far yet have gone nowhere. How is that possible? I spent the bulk of the hour resisting the urge to bang my own head against a wall.
At least the super adorable and maturing (someone has to, right?) toddlers bring a new aspect to the show. Too bad we can’t just watch them and skip their parents. Let’s pitch ‘Dr. Drew’s Daycare’ to MTV.
Because no one at Bravo will give these ladies a muzzle or render their typing finger useless, the former BFFs are outing each other’s secrets in the most nasty, vitriolic feud ever. Celebrity Deathmatch, indeed!
Following Sunday night’s explosive episode, Teresa and Jacqueline have both written novellas in the form of Bravo blogs. Imagine if they put their creative juices and minimal brain power towards good instead of evil?
In her NINE PAGE tome, Teresa address all the elements from Sunday’s explosive fight, which apparently lasted over five hours. Thank goodness we didn’t have to review the unedited footage!
With the Real Housewives of Orange County drawing to a close, there has been a lot of speculation about what is in the works for Alexis Bellino. Not always portrayed as the sharpest tool in the shed, Alexis has lost good friends and gained unusual allies this season.
Alexis was recently interviewed by WetPaint.com about how she was portrayed and whether she’s mended any of her relationships with her cast mates. Highlights from that interview follow.
Once upon a time there was a woman named Pinot Singer who thought she knew a lot about everything and thought no one could see through her. Pinot believed her life was like one of those double-sided mirrors where from one side it looked like a window and from the other side it looked like a mirror. She assumed she could clearly see people and they could see only goodness through her eyes.
Pinot believed she reflected goodness, honesty, truthfulness, and pleasant goodwill. Pinot was wrong. Pinot is delusional, but delusion is a powerful drug – more powerful than pinot grigio, that’s for sure!
Last night on Real Housewives of New Yorkthe ladies assembled for a mid-day brunch, everyone but Pinot and LuAnn de Lesseps. Thank goodness. I’m not sure what time it was, but there they all were; this gaggle of desperate famewhores (and Carole Radziwill) all dressed up as if they were going to a nightclub when it was 1 in the afternoon, outside, in a dowtown restaurant.
As if the Kardashian family isn’t overexposed enough, the Queen of Talk, Oprah Winfrey herself, felt compelled to give them yet another platform from which to spew their ridiculousness. Thanks a heap, O. Couldn’t you just stick to book clubs and giveaways? UsWeekly reports on the interview’s highlights.
Questioning Kim about her blink-and-you-missed-it wedding to Kris Humphries and career catapulting sex tape with Ray J, the reality mogul oh so eloquently replies, “I’ve obviously made plenty of mistakes in my lifetime, but I’m not the type to sit and beat myself up over it. If a real lesson was learned, I’m so okay with having experienced that.”
CAUTION! Before you read what comes next you may want to arm yourself with some sort of trash receptacle or barf bag. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
The rule of thumb for VH1? If a show brings the brawls and the drama, by all means give it a spin-off! The most recent phenomenon is Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. After a very glossy introduction, it seems more like I’m watching night time soap (which, let’s call a spade a spade…) than a reality show. The series promises a lot of skin, a lot of crying, and, of course, a lot of drama. This isn’t Bravo’s Atlanta, that’s for sure, although I’d love to see a Phaedra Parks crossover since she’s friends with Rasheeda. Make it happen, Apollo!
We meet Mimi Faust and her boyfriend of fifteen plus years, Grammy winning record producer Stevie J. They have a two-year-old daughter together, and Mimi is more than ready for her beau to step up to the plate. Mimi is done turning a blind eye to his after-hour antics. After over fifteen years, I’d say he’s probably used to getting his own way. Stevie surprises Mimi with a beautiful home way outside of Atlanta for her and their daughter. Basically, he wants to move her far away so he can “do him” in the ATL. She wishes that he wanted the house to be for the three of them, and he seems to think she is being ungrateful. So, I’m guessing we’re going to watch yet another season of women who complain that the men in their lives are dirty dogs, yet they do nothing to change their situation. Glad I tuned in!
