Summer may have ended(ish) in the blink of an eye (seriously, where did it go??), but the season’s anthem still rings true. Justin Timberlake reminds us all just to dance, dance, dance. Maybe we “Can’t Stop the Feeling” but I think those involved in Abby Lee Miller’s legal woes may have misinterpreted the lyrics just a tad.
The Dance Moms stars’ legal team–along with her prosecutors–clearly misheard JT because for the Lifetime reality star, “ain’t nobody gettin’ sentenced soon, so keep dancing!” It’s unclear if she’ll keep dancing with her show, but she’ll at least avoid any potential jail time a bit longer. I, for one, think the mini team had something to do with this!
Not only does the event honor achievements in dance, but it also benefits the charitable organization Dancers Against Cancer, which raises funds and awareness to help people who are fighting cancer. Maddie was not the only Dance Moms star present at the event though.
Everyone who watches Dance Moms knows that it is not very easy for Abby Lee Miller to apologize or own up to responsibility. That’s why I am so interested to see how she handles all of her legal drama when she reports to sentencing on October 11. Abby is being charged with bankruptcy fraud and failure to report income.
Luckily for Abby, she has had cash cow star dancer Maddie Ziegler to detract from the negative press and make some money. “Discovering” Maddie and putting her in the spotlight was the best thing Abby did for her career. Now it seems like Abby’s livelihood is going down with this legal scandal and Maddie’s success just keeps on soaring.
Sharknado 4 premiered on TV tonight and to celebrate, the cast gathered in Las Vegas. There are a slew of reality stars (and many of them Bravolebrities) who have cameos in the movie and they turned out to support the 4th installment.
We also have a few random pics from the weekend, too. Golnesa Gharachedaghi and Draya Michele attending the Maxim Hot 100 event tonight and more. Check them out below and tell us who you vote for best dressed. – Updated with more photos, including Abby Lee Miller and more at the Teen Choice Awards.

As sad as I was to see Maddie Ziegler leave Dance Moms, I totally understood why she had to do it. She can’t be on reality TV forever and she is in high demand for her dancing talents. The show has done all it could for her and vice versa. I just didn’t get why her sister Mackenzie Ziegler had to leave with her.
Mackenzie is such a talented dancer and she has a fun personality that the fans love seeing on the show so I’m sure that a lot of viewers (and probably Mackenzie herself) were upset when their mother chose to pull them away from Abby Lee Miller’s show. I understand that Mackenzie and Maddie are both children and that their mom Melissa Gisonican’t easily parent them both if they live their lives in different locations, but as a fan I was so sad to see her leave Dance Moms. Now after some social media stalking, I can’t help wondering if Mack is back.
While filming the never-ending season 6, Maddie made the decision to quit Dance Moms and finally be independent from the clutches of Abby Lee Miller. The breakout star of the show, with Hollywood and Sia calling, the show became more pain than pleasure. It was a “hard decision,” to make but now Maddie is relieved to have more control over her career and her life. “It was getting too stressful,” she explains. “I feel like I had so much more pressure on me to be the best in the room.”
