A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on social media. Filed under the “showing off” category: Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore shared the photo above on Instagram, jokingly adding, “Hello girls!”
Kalani Hilliker celebrated her Sweet 16 with an over-the-top party deserving of its own MTV show, then Abby Lee Miller celebrated a birthday of an unknown quantity which was a decidedly lower key affair save for the enormous cake.
Kalani’s birthday party took place in an LA bowling alley and was attended by plenty of ALDC dancers – and the big gift was a white Range Rover. Then it was back home to AZ to celebrate with a visit from Maddie Ziegler (who also has a birthday coming up).
A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
So, on a scale of one to without question, how happy is Maddie Ziegler to be out from under Abby Lee Miller’s thumb? Only time will tell, but if last night’s Dance Moms season premiere was any indicator, the rest of the ALDC elite team needs to follow suit.
Abby has amped up the crazy (with all her legal woes, can you blame her?), and the mini moms are instigating drama among the veteran mothers…as if those ladies really need any push to engage in ridiculous and horrendous behavior…on camera, no less. But those sweet girls…I have certainly missed them and their talent!
The show begins with the girls and their mothers heading into the Los Angeles studio after a much needed break. JoJo Siwa believes that it seems incredibly different without the Ziegler sisters, and Kalani hopes that Abby will realize the elite team can hold their own without them…although she’s not holding her breath.
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!
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.
