Sadie Robertson was the “reality star” pick for Dancing with the Starsseason 19. During her introduction, the Duck Dynasty star mentioned that dancing is strictly prohibited at the Christian school she attends in Louisiana. The 1984 cult classic Footloose immediately came to mind for many, myself included.
So is dancing truly 100% prohibited at Sadie‘s school? According to the school’s principal, YES! The school has a long-standing ban on school dances, including prom, he confirmed.
Can we go ahead and start jumping on Oprah's couch over this news? That's probably putting the cart ahead of the horse, but TLC has announced a new show which will premiere this summer that will follow famed actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini and her family.
I'm not going to hold my breath that this show will divulge all the secrets of the controversial religion, but a gal can hope, right?
Now, Jase'swife Missy is stepping into the limelight. She's just announced that she's partnering with Stephanie Carter's Southern Fashion House (the creator of the fun Judith March line) to create a wardrobe that's both fun for women…and age appropriate. I know a few housewives who should take that hint!
A&E first suspended the Robertson patriarch after his controversial GQ interview had people's jaws on the floor. It seems after the fans petitioned, the sponsors stood by the show and the family spoke out in support of Phil, A&E had a change of heart.
A&E shared their decision this afternoon, "As a global media content company, A+E Networks’ core values are centered around creativity, inclusion and mutual respect. We believe it is a privilege for our brands to be invited into people’s home and we operate with a strong sense of integrity and deep commitment to these principals. That is why we reacted so quickly and strongly to a recent interview with Phil Robertson. While Phil’s comments made in the interview reflect his personal views based on his own beliefs, and his own personal journey, he and his family have publicly stated they regret the 'coarse language' he used and the misinterpretation of his core beliefs based only on the article. He also made it clear he would 'never incite or encourage hate.' We at A+E Networks expressed our disappointment with his statements in the article, and reiterate that they are not views we hold."
