Anyone watch "Dance Moms" last night?

Posted by   + Show Post

I fell asleep, and I wondered if anyone knew the reason that Sophia and her mother didn't show up for the contest?  Of course I didn't record it!

I can't believe I missed the best part! LOL

Abby left on the phone with someone but I dont think it was the cops, I would have called on her....does anyone here think that Cathy looks like Miss Yvonne from Pee Wee's Playhouse?

Quoting jerseydiva:

Did they call the police over Cathy hitting Abby with the purse?  I saw the previews, but don't know the outcome, lol

I thought so too. 

Quoting Josie_P:

Didn't Abby say she sent them back to LA?

they just left but I thought I heard abby tell the mothers that she sent them away which I think Abby didn't want to look like a fool.  I find that bull though if I heard right of course

Incredibly boring. That's all I could think when I was watching it. I really liked the boys' routine though. 

Quoting BabyBrooke13:

 was it just me or was that avalanche routine boring compared to other things they've done

I thought the entire fight looked faked anyway.

I think most of the show is staged for ratings.  But you think the competitions are fake also? 

Quoting Anonymous:

Maybe they were tired of doing fake competitions.

That show makes me mad i would never put my kids through that. That woman is a bully. She emotionally verbally and mentally abuses those kids. I think on some level she cares about them but frankly she is completely immature. Yelling at kids for what their parents do saying look how you hurt me blah blah blah. She is an adult and should start acting like it. By the way she always screams at the kids for crying saying tears are for the pillow and yet she cried guess she is a big baby like she called kendall. She is mean to everyone but gets upset when they are nasty to her

I have never seen a dance school act like Abby's.  First of all....anyone who's done dance competitions knows there is not one national champion, there can be many different national champion competitions.  Second, they don't learn a new routine a week, they learn routines and perfect them over a season.  Yes, the mothers can be cut throat but what is going on here is beyond anything I have ever experienced.  

Only a crazy person would continue to have their child in a dance school where the focus is on the owner winning and not on their child advancing in their craft.
