As always, we start with the pyramid and a hefty dose of insults about the group's third place finish. Abby will not be embarrassed in front of the Cathy and her purse slapping Candy Apples. Peyton is the on the bottom for her tearful hair tantrum. She should be a role model and not a baby. Brooke follows for missing four counts of the group dance, and Nia is third for the bottom for slipping out of her aerial and not placing in her solo division. McKenzie rounds out the bottom row for being too rambunctious in the dressing room. Paige is last on the second row for being good, not great. Ditto for Kendall. Chloe beams when she's second on the pyramid, and it's no surprise that Maddie is in the top spot with ridiculous praise. Kendall and Chloe get solos to prove which one is truly second to Maddie. Maddie gets to rest this week…Abby is tired of her star student carrying the entire troupe. The group number is called "Just Another Number" to remind the girls exactly what they are in the studio. The girls will be dancing as Maddie's clones. Abby hopes to find more Maddie clones at her upcoming open call.
The mothers are in the viewing area, and for once they are in agreement. The theme of the group number sends the wrong message to their daughters, and third place isn't going to cut it against Cathy's dancers. Holly hopes that placing so low the week before will humble the girls into working even harder. In Ohio, Cathy is excited to have choreographer Blake McGrath compete with Abby's lyrical numbers. Black Patsy's daughter is looked over for a solo which goes to Miami's Lucas. Kaya accuses Bridgette of getting her son the dance by partying with Blake 24/7.
Abby Lee Miller was back with a vengeance on last night's premiere of Dance Moms. At least they revamped the opener though, right? At the studio, Abby corrals the girls and their mothers for an announcement. Abby congratulates her Nationals winners while taking passive aggressive digs at everyone. She reveals that she will be holding open auditions in Atlanta, Orlando, and New York. Everyone is replaceable, y'all!
Chloe is at the bottom of the pyramid since Christi made such a scene with Leslie on Bourbon Street during Nationals and Abby gave them the boot. Christi hopes to focus more on her daughter's dancing and less on the mama drama this year. We'll see how long that lasts! Chloe apologizes to her team and promises to work her hardest. Peyton follows Chloe on the bottom for the same reason. Nia is the first actual Nationals participant to be on the bottom, followed by Brooke. Nia looks totally crestfallen, and Holly is upset. Nia is at every class and every extra practice. She is working her little bum off! Brooke is chastised for missing one class while attending New York Fasion Week (really?), and sister Paige is last on the middle tier since things just aren't clicking. Is it just me, or are these new head shots just too much? Mackenzie is next for being second in division at Nationals. Kendall is one spot away from the top of the pyramid when Abby announces that there's been a mistake. She switches out Nia's headshot for Kendall's. Jill is livid. Kendall tries not to cry as Abby complains about Kendall missing a week of booty camp to go on vacation. Maddie is on the top. Surprise, surprise!
Abby Lee Miller is kicking butt and taking names (again) this season on Dance Moms!
Season four of Dance Moms kicks off tonight. This season we'll find the dance moms in a tizzy as Abby Lee hits the road in a nationwide search for new dancers. Abby is set on proving to the moms that "everyone is replaceable" and the moms are in overdrive with the threat of new dancers looming over them. The moms won't let anything get in the way of making sure their daughters will have a place to shine on stage, even if it means going up against Abby Lee.
Don't miss a minute of the dance, drama, and diva behavior! Tune in to Lifetime tonight at 9pm EST.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE MOST ON TONIGHT'S SEASON PREMIERE?
We all love to hate on the lovely characters of reality TV. Some stars manage to cause more trouble than others. While some are fun to hate on, others leave us feeling a bit icky (see above!).
Here is our list of the most controversial, annoying, and outrageous reality stars of 2013!
Above, Farrah Abraham lets her delusion fly! The former Teen Mom star tussled with sex tape drama, a DUI, a rehab stint, and a whole bevy of insane nonsensical rants that made her universally despised!
We'll get to see more of Farrah in action on the upcoming season of Couples Therapy.

It was bound to happen sooner or later…one of the stars of Dance Moms has written a book. Holly Frazier announced viaTwitter, that her fellow dance moms would be supporting her at a book-signing where she was promoting her new tome Moments of Clarity.
I love Holly, and she's the only level-headed, intelligent, class act on the show over the age of thirteen. After the event, Holly posted the above picture with the caption "Thank you to everyone who attended my book signing tonight! I appreciate the support! Perfect event & night."
I just had a total "Aha!" moment when I watched the, like, totally rad new teaser video for the upcoming season of Dance Moms. No seriously!

Pencil sketches melding with reality? Check. Amazing young dancers? Check. Abby as the studio drill sergeant? Check, check, and check! Speaking of "check," make sure to check out the Dance Mom's new year's day premiere on Lifetime at 9 ET. It will certainly start off your 2014 with a bang!
