Abby Lee Miller

Abby Lee Miller and Maddie Ziegler

Dance Moms has faced a ton of negativity the last couple seasons (along with dropping ratings) – all of it focused on how Abby Lee Miller treats her pre-teen dance students! There’s the lawsuits from Paige and her mom Kelly Hyland, the very public-leaving of fan favorite Chloe Lukasiak, rumors that Nia Frazier is on her way out next, and Abby constantly scrambling to keep girls on her team. 

However, Lifetime reportedly has no plans to stop the Abby Lee Monster! During a recent trip to Australia, where Abby wasn’t even wanted, she revealed season 6 is a definite. Abby and the girls are filming while in Down Under, and Abby hinted about recruiting new students for the ALDC. “Maybe season six will be an Australian Dance Moms,” she suggested says the Daily Telegraph.  



Last night the ladies of The Real Housewives of Melbourne and the cast of Dance Moms hit the red carpet for the 2015 ASTRA Awards

Chyka Keebaugh, Janet Roach, Gamble Breaux, Lydia Schiavello, Pettifleur Berenger, Jackie Gillies and Gina Liano all stepped out in their sparkly Housewifey-ish numbers.   Lydia even had a special “Wow” necklace made for the occasion. 

Also down under and in attendance for the awards show was Dance Moms’ Abby Lee Miller, along with Maddie Ziegler and several other dancers from the show. 

Giuliana Rancic hosted the event, probably hoping to hide out for a little while as things cool down from her Zendaya debacle and while we wait to hear who’ll replace Kelly O

Dance Moms Maddie

Abby Lee Miller, whatever are we going to do with you? Last night’s Dance Moms was the Brynn show with the talented newbie pitted against Abby’s favorite, the unbeatable Maddie. Is she Maddie 2.0? After being absent last week so that her mother could tend to her diabetic brother, Brynn returns with mother Ashley to the ALDC. Jill predicts Abby had to have been incredibly persuasive to woo them to Pittsburgh.

At pyramid, Nia is on the bottom for not placing in her solo. JoJo follows with Abby citing an actual improvement–JoJo didn’t stand out in the group routine, she conformed…and nicely at that! MacKenzie rounds out the lowest tier with praise for comprehending choreography so well. MackZ is all smiles, but it’s clear from Melissa’s face that she expected a higher ranking. Kendall is in third overall for an exceptional solo. It’s Kendall’s birthday, and Abby warns that a birthday means that she’s back competing against Maddie. Perhaps she should have stayed eleven forever. Maddie is in second, and if you thought Melissa was peeved about MacKenzie’s spot on the pyramid, it wasn’t anything compared to her sour face at this news! Kalani finally makes the top spot for winning the teen solo division as well as being the highest scoring soloist of the day. 


Amber Marchese & Family Visit Buca di Beppo Times Sqaure

We haven’t seen too much of Jim and Amber Marchese since the reunion episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Last week they stepped out to attend the “Tinkerbell and the Legend of the Neverbeast” screening and then stopped off at Buca di Beppo for dinner (and some family photos). 

Other reality star sightings: GG Gharachedaghi and Reza Farahan hung out at the Stock Exchange as they promoted the new season of Shahs of Sunset while Bethenny Frankel did the afternoon school run with Bryn.  Lisa Rinna got in a good workout and Ramona Singer attended the premiere of “Cop Show” in NYC.

 We also have new pics from Lisa Vanderpump, Rachel Zoe, Val Chmerkovskiy and many more!

Dance Moms girls

Well, the ALDC had a good run in Los Angeles, but it wasn’t good enough for Abby Lee Miller (what is ever good enough for her?). On last night’s Dance Moms, the team, the catty moms and the dance teacher from hell returned to Pennsylvania to continue their unique brand of drama. Holly is still fired up about Abby’s treatment of Nia in regard to Aubry O’Day and the Matty B video, and she’s upset with her fellow mothers for supporting Abby even when she was being completely unreasonable. Jill is on edge as well for being the only mom on Team Abby. Y’all know I’m not counting Melissa on that team as that’s just who she is. Back at the ALDC studio, the moms are tense as MacKenzie shares that she’ll be singing live in New York City. At least someone’s children are benefiting from Abby’s stellar management skills!

At pyramid, Abby berates her team for not being ready for L.A. She only coaches winners. Maddie is exempt from criticism because she wasn’t in the fray of insanity as she was busy guest starring on Disney’s Austin and Ally. Jill interrupts to remind Abby of her loyalty and hopes that everyone (read: Kendall) will now be in Abby’s good graces to reap the rewards in a quest for stardom. At first, I think Abby is going along with Jill’s flattery, but she quickly retorts that Maddie is the breakout because of Maddie’s talent (I’ll give Abby that for sure!), not because of Abby’s management. It must be hard for her not to take credit. Brynn is missing because her brother has serious diabetes and needs to be monitored. As Kira relays this news, Abby barks that they aren’t here to rip on Brynn. Um, Kira was simply stating that some things take precedent over dance, right? Kira can be a pot stirrer, but I don’t think that was her intention in this instance.


dance moms clowns

I’d like to channel my inner Australian and boycott Abby Lee Miller. Seriously, Dance Moms was never exactly a picnic to watch, but this is getting, wait, no, this IS absolutely ridiculous and almost unbearable. We last left off with a disastrous situation on the set of YouTube sensation Matty B’s music video. Melissa, when will you learn that you don’t sign a contract without reading it? Recording artist Mack Z isn’t getting billing credit! The producer pulls Melissa aside to share his conversation with Abby, and MacKenzie is going to be pulled from the video. NO! Abby bellows that all of her “clients'” cannot participate in the video. Holly interjects to remind Abby that the legal issue is that MacKenzie’s recording contract may render her ineligible according to Abby, but what’s wrong with the dancers? As their manager, Abby believes the moms must follow her lead.

Kira just wants her daughter to dance, as does some new mom whose name I won’t bother to learn…yet. Well, maybe all their daughters will ever be is just back-up dancers according to Abby. Jill caves to Abby’s bullying, and Abby cannot believe that Holly has once again stabbed her in the back. They are going against her team. Melissa thinks this is just another example of the other girls not getting the opportunities that her girls get because they refuse to follow Abby’s direction. Holly leaves the decision up to Nia, and Nia wants to dance in the video, as to JoJo and Kalani. The new moms recognize that Nia has the most to lose given that she’s an original team member.

Abby Lee Miller and several of the Dance Moms stars are headed to Australia for a promotional tour but local officials and dance teachers want the tour canceled and Abby’s visa revoked!

Abby’s Ultimate Australia Tour kicks off in March and will feature several showcases, master classes and competitions throughout the country with pricey tickets of around $250! The cast is headed to Ireland this week to promote a series of master classes as well, all of which will be filmed for season 5 of Dance Moms

Apparently upon announcement that Abby Lee was headed down-under way, several child employment officials and dance teachers reacted with outrage. Peter Oxford, Child Ambassador for the Australian Dance Industry confirmed he has received a “huge amount of complaints” that Abby Lee’s “emotionally abusive” teaching-style breached Australia’s laws about working with children. 


23rd Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party - Red Carpet

Instead of having to watch from home, a number of reality stars stepped out on Oscar night to attend viewing parties held around Los Angeles. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna and husband Harry Hamlin hit up the Elton John AIDS Foundation gala, along with Gordon Ramsay, Julianne Hough,  Abby Lee Miller and more.  Others scored an invite to the Vanity Fair party – like Gigi Hadid, Heidi Klum, American Idol’s Jennifer Lopez and The Voice’s Christina Aguilera

Did you watch the ceremony last night?  It was painfully long but I stuck it out for the whole thing.  It was sorta worth it for all of the John Travolta awkwardness.
