We’ve already devoted time to the latter, so let’s focus on the former, shall we? It’s no secret that the ridiculous talent and genuine friendships shared among the dancers is the draw of the reality series…much more so than the asinine fighting between Abby and their mothers. The girls’ successes should be highlighted in light of all the craziness surrounding the show’s drama. It’s an exciting–and lucrative–time to be a former ALDC competitor!
Summer may have ended(ish) in the blink of an eye (seriously, where did it go??), but the season’s anthem still rings true. Justin Timberlake reminds us all just to dance, dance, dance. Maybe we “Can’t Stop the Feeling” but I think those involved in Abby Lee Miller’s legal woes may have misinterpreted the lyrics just a tad.
The Dance Moms stars’ legal team–along with her prosecutors–clearly misheard JT because for the Lifetime reality star, “ain’t nobody gettin’ sentenced soon, so keep dancing!” It’s unclear if she’ll keep dancing with her show, but she’ll at least avoid any potential jail time a bit longer. I, for one, think the mini team had something to do with this!
A slew of reality stars attended the MTV VMAs last night: Farrah Abraham (in an interesting red carpet look…), pregnantJenelle Evans, Snooki & Jwoww, and more. Did you tune in for the show last night? When I heard they were giving Kanye West several minutes to do and say whatever he wanted, I decided to pass on that ranty mess. I heard Beyonce was phenomenal.
Not only does the event honor achievements in dance, but it also benefits the charitable organization Dancers Against Cancer, which raises funds and awareness to help people who are fighting cancer. Maddie was not the only Dance Moms star present at the event though.
Sonja Morgan had a little fun this weekend playing croquet at an event she attended with daughter Quincy in the Hamptons. Also spotted around the Hamptons: Jill and Bobby Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Kristen Taekman and others.
Kim Kardashian looked great (and covered up) at the #BlogHer16 event where she was a guest speaker and spent time taking photos with fans.
Kim Zolciak is back in Los Angeles. The Don’t Be Tardy star was spotted arriving at LAX with husbandKroy Biermann yesterday afternoon.
Also in our gallery you’ll find Heather Dubrow, Andy Cohen, Michael Wainstein and more!
Everyone who watches Dance Moms knows that it is not very easy for Abby Lee Miller to apologize or own up to responsibility. That’s why I am so interested to see how she handles all of her legal drama when she reports to sentencing on October 11. Abby is being charged with bankruptcy fraud and failure to report income.
Luckily for Abby, she has had cash cow star dancer Maddie Ziegler to detract from the negative press and make some money. “Discovering” Maddie and putting her in the spotlight was the best thing Abby did for her career. Now it seems like Abby’s livelihood is going down with this legal scandal and Maddie’s success just keeps on soaring.
As sad as I was to see Maddie Ziegler leave Dance Moms, I totally understood why she had to do it. She can’t be on reality TV forever and she is in high demand for her dancing talents. The show has done all it could for her and vice versa. I just didn’t get why her sister Mackenzie Ziegler had to leave with her.
Mackenzie is such a talented dancer and she has a fun personality that the fans love seeing on the show so I’m sure that a lot of viewers (and probably Mackenzie herself) were upset when their mother chose to pull them away from Abby Lee Miller’s show. I understand that Mackenzie and Maddie are both children and that their mom Melissa Gisonican’t easily parent them both if they live their lives in different locations, but as a fan I was so sad to see her leave Dance Moms. Now after some social media stalking, I can’t help wondering if Mack is back.
