As long as we have known Nick Viall, the Bachelor has had a beard. But then yesterday, he had to shave it off for the Dancing with the Stars Disney night so he could play Pinocchio. I cannot tell a lie because my nose will grow, but he looks better without the facial hair. What do you think? Would you give him a rose or dump him just before a winner is selected just like when he was on The Bachelorette both times.
Last week, Abby Lee Miller abruptly quit Dance Moms again and she was replaced by Dancing with the Stars Cheryl Burke. There were rumors that Ashlee and Brynn also left the show with the dance teacher, but nothing was confirmed.
Over the weekend, the new dance teacher in charge shared some photos of herself with the girls and now we know who left, who stayed and who came back. Brynn is gone, but who cares because her mom and her were unnecessary drama. It also looks like the minis are thankfully gone too.
Kalani, Kendall, Nia and Cam are still part of the Elite team and there is a familiar face with them. In the season finale, Chloe and Christi hinted that they were thinking of coming back and looks like they came back. In fact, it sounds like she did a duet with Nia!
All of sudden, I am liking Dance Moms again. It seems like it will be a lot less drama now that the Drama Queen and her Jesters are gone. The show has felt more scripted than real, and it went from being a guilty pleasure to pure torture to watch. I want the old show back and maybe it will be that way? Or maybe it will be even more scripted and these last 4 episodes will be the last 4 episodes.
How do you feel about all the changes to Dance Moms? Are you happy Abby is gone? Cheryl is in? Brynn and the minis are out? And most importantly Chloe is back!
UPDATE: According to Radar, Brynn and the minis stayed with Abby Lee Dance Company and the other 5 girls went on their own way. Miller is reportedly pitching a reality show with her remaining students, but who wants to watch that? Brynn and the minis are the least interesting members. Plus, what production company is going to want to work with her after all she is rumored to have pulled on Dance Moms? I doubt Lifetime is going to want to her back, so what network will want her new show? But then again you never know. We TV did a show with Mama June and TLC found a way to work with The Duggars, so you anything can happen.
While almost every celebrity on Dancing with the Stars keeps the money they earn for themselves, Mr T told Conan O’Brien that he is donating all of his earnings to St Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
He is not dancing for himself, he is dancing for the sick children, so that they can become healthy adults. In fact, he says if he wins, he will shave off his iconic Mohawk in honor of those kids who lose their hair to treatments. That is dedication.
While he might not be the best dancer on the dance floor, he has the biggest heart on it. To me that gets a perfect score every week over dance steps.
Therefore, we must vote Mr T because we know his salary is going to a good cause and not his pocket or in his case gold chains.
Earlier this week, Charo was almost eliminated on Dancing with the Stars and she told E! she wasn’t happy about being in the bottom two. The Cuchi Cuchi cutie told them that she almost quit the show so that Chris Kattan, who was eliminated, could stay. She also isn’t happy about how the judges score her lower than other people even though they praise her dancing.
A reason why, I quit watching the show. While that is why I gave up on Dancing, is she going to do the same? That is what people seem to be thinking, but she took Instagram to let her fans know that she is not. She said, “I am NOT quitting @dancingabc I love the show and want to stay awhile! Vote #teamcuchicuchi #dwts24 #dwts.”
Which is a very good thing because Mr T and her are the only reason to watch this season. Vote Charo!
On Sunday, Abby Lee Miller took to Instagram to announce that she was quitting Dance Moms (again) and it looks like they have already found her replacement. According to Entertainment Tonight, Dancing with the Stars’ Cheryl Burke will take over as the dance teacher for the four additional episodes that Lifetime ordered for this season.
Is this a good idea? Hell to the no. The show already feels more scripted than reality, so having someone who will do any and every reality show is going to make it feel more fake that it already feels. It would be better to let the show die than try to save it because this solution is going to make the dying show even worse than it already it.
I don’t like Abby Lee Miller, but at least she did not start out as a television star. They would be better off going with a no name than a name because then the show is going to be all about the name than the moms and their daughters. That is who it should really be about and not someone who has reality TV experience.
I mean, if they were going to go with a name, I wish they would’ve gone with Debbie Allen who has already be on the show a few times. Even though she is a name, she is also a well know choreographer who has been working as a dance teacher for a long time. We only know of Burke as a choreographer on DWTS and not as a dance teacher. I think that is the most important credential for Miller’s replacement.
What do you think of Cheryl Burke taking over for Abby Lee Miller?
