Well it’s about time! For months Lifetime has been teasing about Cheryl Burke replacing Abby Lee Miller on Dance Moms, and finally she’s arrived. The OG moms are gossiping about the downfall of the ALDC after Abby quit on Brynn and the minis two weeks before Nationals. Needless to say, Ashlee is livid, but the minis are hopeful for her return.
The Irreplaceables are thrilled that Cheryl is their new instructor. This week they will be competing with a jazz group routine and two duets. Both duets will be a continuation of the same story, and they will be performed by Nia and Chloe, as well as Kendall and Camryn. Christi is over the moon. Chloe and Nia are the only girls who have been on the team since day one, and they have never had the opportunity to perform together.
Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid walked the runway at the Tom Ford show during NYFW last night, but Kim Kardashian is the one who made headlines for her new hair and her figure-hugging dress, and of course that new baby announcement!
The Dancing with the Stars contestants and pro dancers celebrated the upcoming season. Maksim Chmerkovskiy, his brother Val and wife Peta Murgatroyd were among the partiers this week at Planet Hollywood in NYC.
After getting convicted for twenty counts of fraud in the most public way possible, former Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller is set to start her prison sentence tomorrow in California. Going to jail for fraud is such a #TotalRealityStarMove at this point, so this really isn’t unusual, but it will (hopefully) be a major wake up call for the notoriously difficult dance teacher.
Even though her team has moved on with Cheryl Burke as their coach, she still has one big scene to film for the show that put her in the limelight. Yes, the Lifetime cameras will actually be present when Abby turns herself in.
I like watching the girls compete on Dance Moms, but Abby Lee Miller is the one who made the show worth watching. So I can’t help being curious about how Cheryl Burke will do now that she’s taking over for Abby. I’m sure she’s a nicer coach and way more enjoyable to be around.
Personally, I think the show would be great to watch if the trash talking between Abby and Cheryl was included in the episodes. These two have had a lot to say about each other in the press. As expected, Abby did not take too kindly to Cheryl describing the girls as “traumatized” thanks to Abby.
As much as I love the girls on Dance Moms, I really watched the show for Abby Lee Miller’s ridiculous antics. Sure the moms argued a lot about who was raising the biggest star, but Abby really made the show. However, if I were a dancer or dance mom I would actually be relieved that Abby was replaced by Cheryl Burke.
Cheryl seems to be a lot more rational and kind than Abby ever has been, but then again aren’t we all? I have no idea how entertaining the show will be in Abby’s absence, but apparently Cheryl has a lot to overcome as the new coach of ALDC- or whatever moniker the team is going by during this post-Abby era.
Ding-dong the wicked dance teacher is gone! Abby Lee Miller huffed, and she puffed, and she screamed, but she couldn’t blow the Dance Moms franchise down – and the cast is thrilled with her replacement, Cheryl Burke. There’s been a lot of changes on Dance Moms, actually, and now former dancer Chloe Lukasiak is speaking out about her “high-stress and intense” experiences on the show with an inspirational new memoir.
Last month Abby Lee publicly quit the show she helped build, claiming that Lifetime execs and producers refused to give her creative credit for dances she choreographed for the ALDC troupe, featured on the show. In the past Abby has also complained that producers forced her to maintain her bully persona for ratings.
