Who would have thought we’d have a Dance Moms post that isn’t about Abby Lee Miller’s ever prolonged fraud sentencing from her many (many, many!) legal woes? Thank goodness for former Dance Moms star (and Abby’s one-time golden ticket) Maddie Ziegler for giving us something positive to write about concerning the show!

Before becoming Sia’s sidekick, Maddie was center stage of the ALDC. She was tasked with carrying every routine, winning every number, and trying to remain tight with her friends as their mothers feuded over Abby’s favoritism of Maddie and her increasing amount of show biz breaks outside the studio. While Maddie is no longer competing, she is taking advantage of all the opportunities she garnered thanks to her time in the Lifetime spotlight. Most recently, the fourteen-year-old has written a book entitled The Maddie Diaries.

Dance Moms season finale recap

This sentencing has been hanging over Abby Lee Miller‘s head since forever, so I cannot imagine how Abby herself feels about it getting drawn out in such a public manner with no conclusion. And now the Dance Moms star has to wait even longer to hear about her fate since her sentencing that was scheduled for February 24 has been delayed.

To recap, Abby was indicted on 20 different counts of fraud in October 2016. In June 2016, Abby was charged with violating currency reporting laws which allegedly included her having “people sneak $120,000 from Australia via plastic bags.” She plead guilty and Abby (and the Dance Moms) fans are waiting to find out what happens.

The reality stars (past and present) were out in force to attend OK! Magazine’s Pre-Grammy party. The event brought together some unlikely pairings, including Brandi Glanville and once-nemesis Scheana Marie, who hung out on a couch with Carlton Gebbia and Lala Kent. Brandi also publicly debuted her boyfriend, DJ Friese.

Also out for the big bash: Lisa Vanderpump and Little Women: LA star Terra Jole.  Several of Lisa’s SUR minions (past and present) were there, too: Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and James Kennedy.

Others pictured below: Courtney Stodden (fresh off a split from Doug!), Amina Buddafly, Althea Heart, Abby Lee Miller and more! Check out the gallery and tell us who is the biggest fashion disaster of the night?

Dance Moms season finale recap

Nine times out of ten, I’m going to feel badly for someone facing something so serious, even with the knowledge that the outcome is deserved by the offender. Sure, Stevie J. of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fame owes millions in child support, but don’t send him to jail–give him another show! Heck, I felt terrible for Teresa Giudice when she got sent up the river, but dare I say how she handled her prison time is one of the classier things the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has ever done. However, I just don’t feel badly for Dance Moms antagonist Abby Lee Miller. Lock her up for a bit. Perhaps she’ll gain a little perspective and humility. Who am I kidding?

Facing sentencing at a hearing tomorrow and another on February 24th (after what seems like a decade’s worth of postponements), Abby’s legal team is scrambling for a hail Mary so the dance studio owner can avoid any jail time. She’s currently facing up to five years in prison and an excess of $5 million in fines thanks to twenty counts of fraud involving her bankruptcy and generally just forgetting to declare some Aussie currency she brought back into the country…chump change, really.

Dance Moms season finale recap

Last night’s Dance Moms showcased the competition where Abby Lee Miller’s former elite team would be facing off against the minis, and, per the usual, ugliness and petty shenanigans ensued. Do we think she’s going to end up going to jail?

On the day of competition, the elite team squares off against the minis. Abby instructs the veteran moms to have their daughters write a list of why they hate her so much. Holly Frazier won’t stand to be spoken to in such a manner in front of the girls, and she ushers everyone into the venue. Jill Vertes uses Abby’s words against her, reminding her that everyone is replaceable. Abby is confident that her minis are better at their age and the elite team was back when they were six. The veteran moms question whether the mini moms are okay with Abby’s behavior and they are met with hemming and hawing from the newbies. Ashlee suggests that the women present a united front so Abby cannot treat their daughters badly. Before the competition, the elite girls are in good spirits and glad to be away from Abby and her meanness.

Is it bad that I’ve decided that yet another hour long Dance Moms episode means that something is right with the world? Perhaps that was Steven Collins’ plan all along with that slew of ninety minute ridiculousness! Either that, or I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Thirty Year Old Grandma!

On last night’s show, the veteran mothers made good on their threat to look elsewhere for training, and Abby Lee Miller threw yet another tantrum. It was pretty amazing, to be honest. In light of Abby’s legal woes and mounting erratic behavior, the women decide to rent out their own studio. The elite team is ecstatic, and Kira gifts the girls with a new team jacket. She’s enlisted a rival dance instructor and famed choreographer given the girls will be performing at a competition with the ALDC minis. Kalani Hilliker is thrilled to be working with Erin, and the entire team seems to have a renewed confidence. An added bonus? No pyramid!

Last night was the 4th annual Reality TV Awards ceremony and several familiar faces turned out for the event. We have the red carpet photos and the full winner’s list!

Vicki Gunvalson, who won “Reality Queen,” was in attendance with her beau Steve. Abby Lee Miller took home the prize for Favorite Reality TV Villain while Real Housewives of Orange County won for Favorite Recurring Cast.  Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa won for Heartfelt Moment.  Reality Tea was nominated for Favorite Reality TV Website, but we lost out to TMZ. Not bad company to be in for that category, though, right? Oh well, there’s always next year. We were just thrilled to be in the running with some pretty amazing sites. 😉

Check out the full list of winners below, as well as photos of some of the red carpet arrivals.

Dance Moms

Thank you, Lifetime! My prayers have been answered. Last night’s Dance Moms episode was only an hour long. Finally! I never thought this day would come! We are back to some semblance of structure. Abby Lee Miller is actually present for the pyramid! If that’s not enough, Jill Vertes gets to throw out her favorite word–favoritism–regarding the minis. It’s status quo once again!

In case you missed the first fifteen hours of this season, Jill is sick and tired of the mini team taking Abby’s attention away from Kendall and the elite team. However, she’s the loudest to cheer when Abby announces yet again that the minis’ latest group routine garnered the most points. In fact, it’s Holly Frazier who is first to challenge Abby regarding the drama surrounding last week’s competition. Kira happily joins in and Jill quickly stops cheering and starts chastising. Stacey, the only mini mom whose name I’ve chosen to learn, is very vocal about how horrible the veteran moms are. Lather, rinse, repeat, week after week, season after season.
