Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller had a line of fans waiting to meet her and a book signing and Lisa Vanderpump filmed some scenes for RHOBH with husband Ken Todd. Also spotted: LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian doing interviews to promote their (epically failing) show.
Talk about putting all your eggs in one basket! Geez, Lifetime! I guess when a network finds its niche, audience, and all-around tongue-wagging cash cow, it will run with it. And twirl. And plie, And pirouette. Abby Lee Miller is becoming quite the brand.
I thought the Dance Moms franchise had been spread thin, what with Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition and the new Abby's Studio Rescue, but clearly I was wrong. I can admit it. However, I can predict that the mothers of the original show are going to have a lot to say about this news! Holy spin-off!
Who wouldn't want to take parenting advice from Abby Lee Miller? The recently engagedDance Moms star is often revered for the wonderful way she treats the children in her studio. Oh, wait…well, regardless, Abby thinks she knows best, and now she's got a book coming out to prove it.
Harper Collins will be releasing Everything I Learned About Life, I Learned In Dance Class on July 15. Perfect beach read, right? Not so much! In the book, Abby explains her tough love mentality and shares her success stories. You won't be surprised to learn that her eleven-year-old protege Maddie Ziegler penned the book's forward.
Well, it's official! Abby Lee Miller is engaged. RT, dibs on recapping the Dance Moms spin-off that's sure to surround planning her big day! After months of speculation and vast amounts of Twitter love thrown back and forth, the villainous star of Lifetime's hit has confirmed that, yes, she is in fact betrothed to Michael Padula.
Wait, who? Well, according to his Twitter, Michael is an Italian actor, "voiceover king," and TV host who has a penchant for tweeting–and retweeting–all things Dance Moms.

Abby Lee Miller, the star of Lifetime's Dance Moms, has become famous for her aggressive — I say mean, controlling and detrimental to children — style of teaching dance. And Maks has always been the bad boy of DWTS.

Was anyone surprised that was his response? Really?
I don't know what I more saddened to learn about last night's Dance Moms…that it was ninety minutes long or that that it was the mid-season finale. Seriously, Lifetime? MID-SEASON? This season has been going on since before MacKenzie was born–at least that's how it feels! Of course, we finally got to meet the new team that Abby Lee Miller has been threatening to introduce for decades!
The super-sized episode begins with Abby returning to the studio after the death of her mother. Her dancers share their condolences, and once again, both Maddie and I are in tears. Abby cuts through the emotional moment by forging ahead with the pyramid. Chloe is on the bottom due to her fifth place solo finish, with Nia following. Kalani rounds out the bottom tier for not standing out in group number. Kendall is in the third spot for her second place solo. Maddie is in second, with MacKenzie on the top for balancing dance and her It's a Girl Party video…which, by the way, is available for download on Lifetime. Do people really buy these things?
