I’m not going to lie. I had to focus on my breathing during last night’s Dance Moms so as not to pop a vein. These poor girls work so hard, and they are truly supportive friends. However, Abby Lee Miller and the crazy moms do everything possible to take the fun out of what they like to do most. I was really, really disturbed by it.
It’s pyramid time once again, but Kelly and Paige are glaringly absent. Abby Lee thinks it’s horrendous that Kelly hasn’t filled her in on the status of Paige’s foot injury. Bottom line: they should be there for the pyramid. Abby lectures the girls about the importance of listening to her…if Paige had listened, she may not have hurt herself! Christi can’t believe Abby is blaming Paige. It was an accident. Abby praises last week’s soloists and announces they’ll be competing in Philly next. Paige is on the bottom thanks to her “accident” along with MacKenzie and Chloe. Chloe lands on the bottom because she didn’t have a solo that makes sense. Brooke and Nia are on the second tier, with Maddie once again on the top thanks to getting the highest score from the judges. MacKenzie is granted a solo, although she won’t be in the group dance. Brooke and Maddie both get a solo. Chloe and Paige will be dancing a duet. Chloe is thrilled at the prospect of dancing with her best friend.
They’re ba-ack! After Jill and Kendall studio hop from the Candy Apples, they head right back to Abby Lee Miller. This should be good! It’s just another dramatic night in the lives of the Dance Moms.
Holly is late for the pyramid reveal. Abby isn’t happy about that, but she’s happy the girls did so well at their last competition. Before Abby starts peeling off copy paper from the girls’ glossy pics, Jill swoops in begging for Kendall to have spot back with the troupe. Maddie seems giddy. It’s clear, once again, that the girls adore one another while leaving the cattiness, jealousy, and competitiveness for their crazy moms. Abby won’t hear any of it at the moment. I am getting a very scripted vibe, and I’m disappointed that Lifetime is fancying itself a less slutty version of VH1. Jill brings in Kendall with her own 8×10 glamour shot to add to the pyramid. Abby pretends to be floored. She reminds the girls who are hugging Kendall that if they want to be friends with her they should invite her over for a good old fashioned sleepover.

It was the birthday party from H-E-double hockey sticks on last night’s Dance Moms. Abby Lee Miller doesn’t only have some of her dancers in tears, but some of the moms as well!
The bottom of the pyramid is Paige because of Kelly changing her choreography. While Abby is proud that she beat her Candy Apple counterpart, perhaps she would have beaten her even better with Abby’s moves. MacKenzie joins Paige on the bottom, followed by Brooke who is finally off of probation. The middle rung Nia and Maddie. Chloe takes the spot for landing her solo in the top ten and winning the overall best costume award.
Last night’s Dance Moms was the showdown between Abby Lee’s Dance Company and Cathy’s Candy Apples.
Abby Lee Miller isn’t thrilled (to say the least) that her girls lost their last competition by one-tenth of a point. It’s time to cowboy up! These girls are the ones to beat, not the ones to be beat. This week the troupe will be traveling to Ohio to compete…against former dance mom Cathy’s group of Candy Apples. Abby, the girls, and their mothers are all rolling the their eyes at the thought of seeing Cathy again. At least they finally seem united! Abby wants to make apple pie out of Cathy’s group with her dancers as the a la mode.
Paging Austin Scarlett! Mr. Austin Scarlett! Project Runway All-Stars is at the center of recent host drama, and I, for one, need it to be settled stat. I love this show. It’s been reported that supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitely was poised to host the newest season of of Lifetime’s design fabulousness, but she backed out to film the upcoming Mad Max movie. Tina Turner is probably torn on her opinion of this gossip. We all know that Tina loves couture but has a special place in her heart for the Thunderdome.
The New York Post is reporting that producers scrambled to replace Rosie with Estée Lauder model Carolyn Murphy just days before the season started. One source tells the site, “Literally days before filming, the show suddenly had no host. Rosie had been pushing really hard for the job. She’d charmed everyone. But then with less than three weeks to go, Rosie pulled out to do ‘Mad Max,’ creating a huge drama. It put the production in a terrible position, and the Weinstein Co. even threatened to sue Rosie.”
Last night’s Dance Moms saw another Payton/Leslie invasion, the moms standing up for one another and Abby sneaking Maddie into a second competition without telling the troupe. Geez!
Abby gets on the troupe for getting second place overall. While any other dance teacher would be thrilled, Abby reminds her girls that she is not any other dance teacher. Paige is on the bottom of the pyramid along with Brooke, who is still on probation. She blames the girls for not coming to them on their own to beg for their solos after mom Kelly pulled them from the competition. Is she serious? Nia is also on the bottom, although I’m not sure why. Chloe and Maddie are in the middle of the pyramid with MacKenzie taking the coveted top spot. Melissa is super proud. The competition this week will be held in Virginia, and it’s touted as the largest dance competition in the country.
After a tumultuous but victorious competition in Chicago, Abby Lee’s dancers are back for more. Last night’s Dance Moms proved to be even more explosive, with Abby and Kelly once again butting heads. As much as she wanted to leave the studio, Kelly wants her daughters to get to enjoy dancing with her friends, so she has returned fully prepared to see her daughters on the bottom of the pyramid.
Kelly called it. Both Brooke and Paige are at the bottom of the pyramid. Not only will they not get solos, they have the word “probation” splashed across their head shots. Brooke thinks it’s unfair that she and her sister are being punished for an argument that their mother had with Abby. Chloe is also at the bottom for missing a rehearsal due to a doctor’s appointment. Christi is livid. MacKenzie is on the middle tier, with Abby citing she needs more ballet training. Nia joins her, and Abby praises her trio. Holly knows how excited this makes her daughter, so she is very proud. Maddie is once again back on top.
Oh Abby Lee! You are livin’ on the dance floor…that’s for darn sure! First off on last night’s Dance Moms, Abby reminds her girls that they are every bit as sluggish and boring as they were at the competition. B to the O to the Ring were these little ladies last week…according to the all-knowing Oz Abs.
Shockingly, Maddie is at the bottom of the pyramid. Melissa thinks that her daughter’s place is not okay, but she’s willing to let the other girls have their position at the top. Joining Maddie is McKenzie who placed tenth. In case you didn’t know, Abby doesn’t do tenth. Paige rounds out the bottom of the pyramid for missing a step.
