Never say never, right? You know how sometimes, late at night, celebrities like to get on social media and rant? Maybe they’ve had a few cocktails. Maybe it was just a long day. Usually these things get deleted before sunrise, but sometimes you wake up and realize you quit your job in an all caps Instagram post! Such is the case with Abby Lee Miller who bid an Internet farewell to the network who made her a star over seven seasons of its hit show Dance Moms.
Alleging manipulation and a lack of artistic integrity, Abby gave the boot to the production team who she claims reveled in her mistreatment. However, amid rumblings that the show will go on without her (with former Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke at the helm), Abby is back tracking…just a little.
At least this way, the exit is on Abby’s terms, and as you can imagine, she is exiting stage left in a giant blaze of glory. Complaining of sexism and a power struggle over creative control, Abby is letting Lifetime have it, with a lot of caps lock, no less.
Date night hottie alert! Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix enjoyed a double date night with co-star Scheana Marie and her new guy, Robert Valletta, at the premiere of Power Rangers this week. It looks like Tom shaved off his long hair and the frosted tips! What do you think of the new look?
Before becoming Sia’s sidekick, Maddie was center stage of the ALDC. She was tasked with carrying every routine, winning every number, and trying to remain tight with her friends as their mothers feuded over Abby’s favoritism of Maddie and her increasing amount of show biz breaks outside the studio. While Maddie is no longer competing, she is taking advantage of all the opportunities she garnered thanks to her time in the Lifetime spotlight. Most recently, the fourteen-year-old has written a book entitled The Maddie Diaries.
Over the weekend was the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, which brings out plenty of reality stars. Dance Moms stars JoJo Siwa and Chloe Lukasiak were there, as well as Lamar Odom, Blac Chyna, Heidi Klum and others.

This sentencing has been hanging over Abby Lee Miller‘s head since forever, so I cannot imagine how Abby herself feels about it getting drawn out in such a public manner with no conclusion. And now the Dance Moms star has to wait even longer to hear about her fate since her sentencing that was scheduled for February 24 has been delayed.
The reality stars (past and present) were out in force to attend OK! Magazine’s Pre-Grammy party. The event brought together some unlikely pairings, including Brandi Glanville and once-nemesis Scheana Marie, who hung out on a couch with Carlton Gebbia and Lala Kent. Brandi also publicly debuted her boyfriend, DJ Friese.
Others pictured below: Courtney Stodden (fresh off a split from Doug!), Amina Buddafly, Althea Heart, Abby Lee Miller and more! Check out the gallery and tell us who is the biggest fashion disaster of the night?
Nine times out of ten, I’m going to feel badly for someone facing something so serious, even with the knowledge that the outcome is deserved by the offender. Sure, Stevie J. of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fame owes millions in child support, but don’t send him to jail–give him another show! Heck, I felt terrible for Teresa Giudice when she got sent up the river, but dare I say how she handled her prison time is one of the classier things the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has ever done. However, I just don’t feel badly for Dance Moms antagonist Abby Lee Miller. Lock her up for a bit. Perhaps she’ll gain a little perspective and humility. Who am I kidding?
Facing sentencing at a hearing tomorrow and another on February 24th (after what seems like a decade’s worth of postponements), Abby’s legal team is scrambling for a hail Mary so the dance studio owner can avoid any jail time. She’s currently facing up to five years in prison and an excess of $5 million in fines thanks to twenty counts of fraud involving her bankruptcy and generally just forgetting to declare some Aussie currency she brought back into the country…chump change, really.
