Dance Moms



Y'all.

I just had to interrupt Fashion Week to ask if you had seen the hot mess known as Dance Moms? It comes on Lifetime at 9:00 CST on Wednesdays and has quickly become my new reality TV drug of choice.



If not, you are really missing out. I mean REALLY missing out. The show is all about the fate of one Abby Lee Miller Dance Company - a competitive dance school in Pittsburgh, PA. The mastermind behind the whole operation is Abby Lee Miller herself; a 40 year old bully of a dance teacher who literally carries around a wiffle ball bat to 'whip her girls into shape' while they pratice their pirouettes and Pas de bourrĂ©e, (a little dance lingo, for those who care.)




Dance Moms also chronicles the absolute obsessiveness of these crazy mommas that live vicariously through their daughters' every move. It's kind of like Toddlers and Tiaras, except with more glitter and kiddos that are legitimately talented : )


Stephen and I got sucked into watching a whole marathon of it this past weekend and were immediately addicted. Some of my favorite quotes from the show:

“Girls what are you doing? Those legs are about as straight as Elton John.” - Miss Abby

"“That Minister Dawn needs a Bible refresher course. Thou shall not lie. Thou shall not steal. Thou shall not disrespect Abby.” – Abby Lee Miller"

“Your eyelashes are drooping. Do I need to staple your eyebrows up?” – Cathy Jean Nesbitt-Stein, mom of one of the little girls who dances in Abby's company.

Surriously, y'all need to tune into this show.

Ok, that is all. You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming...

Be blessed, lovelies-

  4. I watch this show! My husband thinks I'm crazy but I can't seem to turn it off. I hate the way Abby speaks to the kids but she is 10 times worse to the moms. I just don't get why the moms keep their kids there if they are so unhappy....go somewhere else! Although I do agree with you that Abby says some crazy stuff!

  5. Oh goodness, I watched one episode of this a couple of weeks ago, and it freaked me out a little! I couldn't get over how rude Abby was! It is like a crazier Toddlers & Tiaras. I haven't watched any more episodes since, but I kinda want to watch again. It's like a trainwreck and you can't look away :)

  6. Just started watching on Labor Day when they were running a marathon. I'm hooked! My fiance won't watch, though. He says it creeps him out.

  7. glad i am not the only one who got sucked into this craziness...it's crazy because yes, these girls have SO much talent, yet their mothers should be ashamed of themselves

  8. It's my new TV drug of choice. My husband hates it, and even though our daughter started dance this year, he swears that no one will act like Abby does to her girls, or he'll kick some butt. I tried to compare dance to football, in which the coaches yell in the players face and he says that that never happens (i'm not so sure I believe this). But, I love it.

  9. My favorite addiction as well. Chole is my fave!! I love her sassy-ness in her dancing. I got my mom hooked and she had to call me last night to discuss the latest episode. GREAT SHOW!

  13. As much as I hate to admit it, I watch it. I've been dancing for most of my life, and now I am a dance teacher. Most of the things that she says make me cringe, and I get so frustrated when the moms complain. If they don't like it, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

    That's all. Glad I'm not the only one who has gotten sucked in ; )

  15. This show is awesome! ha ha. It's so funny. Even better than Toddlers and Tiaras I think :). What cracks me up the most is how serious they are about it and how upset they get. I was competitive in dance and pageants and a kid and I think I would have died if my mom acted that way :).

  19. Definitely watched it! OH MY.. I am so glad I found someone else that watches it! It is crazyyyy!

  20. Seriously, I tried to watch this show and I just can't. I love reality TV, but this is taking it way too far. The show is all about the mothers. Plus, I danced for 13 years and I really don't see why everyone thinks this lady is so talented. Can't do it anymore. I'll stick to Toddlers and Tiaras.

  21. omg. I saw this on my tv guide and thought about watching but then didn't - my mistake! I am totally watching this next week (or any chance I get for a re run). I love Toddlers and Tiaras so I'm sure I'll be all over this one!

  22. UGH. That show drives me nuts!!

  23. I LOVE THIS SHOW! Probably because I used to compete in dance and had a nazi of a studio owner just like Abby Miller. I'm addicted too :)

  24. I blogged about this show a few weeks ago ... I cannot even believe Abby, is she serious!? and those poor little girls ... and the moms, oh man!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I watch this show. So crazy how she treats those kids. And that the moms just sit there. I think it's worse than Toddlers & Tiaras.

  26. We have been SUCKED IN!!!! Brittany, what I think is crazy is that the moms don't just sit there but they sit there and gripe about her!! She must be some teacher!

  27. hahahah I just blogged about this the other day too, I am obsessed. The show is super addicting, and the moms are Innsannne! So good, the girls really are amazing dancers!!

  28. Love hearing that others are just as addicted to this show! When I first saw it advertised I vowed I wouldn't watch because I certainly don't need another reality addiction but after one marathon you're hooked. Well done Lifetime.

  29. My husband... yes him too... and I love this show. He only watches it for the drama. I watch it for that and the dance. Those girls are awesome!

  30. I am also hooked after last weekend! Love this show! ;)

  31. It really is the best show...one of the moms is related to my husband's step family. And apparently most of what you see if true and not staged for the show.
