Even though season 6 of Dance Moms hasn’t premiered yet, one of the dancers is rumored not be returning for a 7th season…if there is one. According to US Weekly, several sources confirmed that this will be Maddie Ziegler’s last season with the show. Since she became a semi-star by doing Sia’s music videos, the teenager has decided that she wants to focus on acting instead.
Only thing is, she doesn’t realize that without the show, people probably won’t care about her as much. Maybe she can do one of those song and dance movies on the Disney Channel like High School Musical and Teen Beach Movie. Other than that, I think her star will flame out fast without Dance Moms and Sia.
When it comes to the future of the show? It will be interesting to see if this season will be the last one for the Lifetime show. Not only is Maddie reportedly leaving, we don’t know yet if Abby Lee Miller will be spending time in her dance schools or federal prison. If the government gets their way, she will be dancing her way into the latter. We shall see.
Just days after Dance Moms started filming season 6, news broke that Abby Lee Miller was indicted on alleged fraud charges. Some of us wondered if they would include her legal woes in the show. Today, Lifetime released the first look at he upcoming season and the answer is yes. How much and how far, we don’t know. We will just have to tune in starting January 5th.
Looks like legal problem isn’t her only problem. It seems like all of the moms, yes all of them, are getting sick and tired of her antics.
To make matters even worse, according to Deadline, Miller sent out a newsletter saying that she might be missing from a few episode. She claims that she got in a fight with a producer who wanted her to a teen pregnancy dance routine with a fake baby bump. She said, “When a grown man tells me he wants one of my kids to portray a pregnant teen and wear a baby bump — I have to put my foot down…If that means not moving my foot and not working and getting fined in the process, well that’s a risk I am willing to take to protect my girls.” Then she added, “I am always teaching principles, integrity, and values in addition to dance technique. It is important for me that the girls learn to stand up and fight for what they believe in!”
I guess I am watching a different show than the one than the one she is watching.
I wonder how much longer Lifetime is going to put up with her. If I were them, I would pull the plug. Although, if the feds get their way, the network might not have a choice.
United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today that Abby Lee Miller was indicted on 20 counts of allegedly “Defrauding Bankruptcy Court by Hiding Assets and Lying about Income.”
In December 2010, she filed a Petition to Reorganize her dance studio. Around that time, is when she began working on Dance Moms. The statement then claims that she created bank accounts and hid some of the money she made from the Lifetime shows and classes from the courts.
The statement went on to say, “Miller concealed income totaling approximately $755,492.85 from the Trustee and creditors, and gained favorable terms to restructure debt from her fraudulent acts.”
If convicted, she could face up to 5 years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine.
No word when she will face the judge in court or what Lifetime will do with Dance Moms. The show began taping its 6th season last week.
During the Dance Moms’ season finale, Abby Lee Miller hinted that she was going to disband the Junior Elite Team aka the dancers we know and love; and now it looks like she was serious about that. Today, she posted a message on Instagram declaring, “They are casting dancers I didn’t select or deem appropriate for the new team.” So now she is looking for the best 7 and 8 year old dancers in the country.
If you want your child to be yelled at on national television doing something they once loved, then send Miller an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures and video. Good luck.
When it comes to the show, if the girls and their moms aren’t back, then neither am I. I am not tuning in for Miller, I am tuning for them. Are you done with the show too if the girls and their moms are not the focus of the show?
Remember when Abby Lee Miller announced that she was leaving Dance Moms to do something bigger and better during the 5th season’s final episode? Well here’s a shocker, she lied. OK, it isn’t a shocker but she did lie. That’s because tonight she Tweeted, “Started filming season 6 today of #DanceMoms! Get excited!!!”
I was kind of looking forward to Dance Moms without her. Between the show getting more scripted and her overacting, I was ready for something smaller and better. Oh well, as much as I say I won’t watch, I will.
Now, when it comes to which moms will be returning, that she didn’t say. But I think we can all agree, to her the show is only about Maddie and her and the rest of them are just background noise who don’t need to be there and are replaceable.
Let’s be real, Lifetime’s Unauthorized Stories for the most part are really bad. Strangely enough, they finally got one right. The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story is pretty entertaining, so you should check it out at 8p tonight.
The telemovie starts out with the network pitching the show to Aaron Spelling (Dan Castellaneta) and him saying no. That is until his daughter Tori (Abby Ross) convinces him to do it. Now it is time to cast to lead roles, and Tori again helps him with that when she suggests he hires Shannen Doherty (Samantha Munro) and Jason Priestley (Max Lloyd-Jones ). Tori auditions for Kelly, but the network wants Jennie Garth (Abbie Cobb), so she gets Donna. Somehow Ian Ziering (David Lennon), Gabrielle Carteris (Michele Goyns) and Brian Austin Green (Ross Linton) are also cast on the show.
Now it is time to the shoot the pilot and they share the studio with porn stars. Did you know that? After the pilot is shot and they watch it, they think the show will never get picked up. As we know it did, but initially it bombed.
Darren Star (Adam Korson) and Aaron think the show is missing something and that something is Luke Perry (Jesy McKinney). But even he couldn’t save the show from poor ratings. That is until something happens that helps it become the hit that became. What, you will have to tune in to find out.
After the show is a hit, it is the I hate Shannen show. The movie ends with her firing and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen’s (Alyssa Lynch) hiring. Lynch also played her in Lifetime’s Saved By the Bell movie.
Even though the telemovie only covers the first four seasons, it is just enough. I don’t know how to explain how they got it right, but when you see it, you will see how they did.
I mean, the only actors who look like the people they are playing are Munro and Cobb, but you quickly forget that because the story is interesting enough to keep you entertained.
Tori Spelling recently was strapped down to a lie detector, asked a bunch of questions and this Saturday we will get the results on Lifetime. One of the questions they asked her, is did she sleep with any of her Beverly Hills. 90210 co-stars. She admitted that she did and it was Brian Austin Green.
She revealed that as soon as they met, she felt a connection with him but she wasn’t sure he felt the same way. That’s because he used to come up to her and pull on her peach fuzz and call her, “My Chewbacca.” Well they went from that to making Wookie, I mean Whoopie.
She also revealed that she slept with another co-star, but we will have to tune in to find out who. Who do you think it is?
Lifetime released the first clip from The Unauthorized Full House Story, and they definitely did not have mercy on us. I mean, if this is what we can expect from the telemovie on August 22nd, I wonder if it is too late to cut it out.
On a positive note, at least we have Fuller House to look forward to on Netflix.
Yesterday, I posted the cast photo for Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story, and I thought that casting was the worst. That casting was spot as compared to the job that Lifetime did for The Unauthorized Melrose Place Story.
I mean, at least with 90210, you knew who they were by their hair color. When it comes to the Melrose Place one that didn’t even work. I mean the actresses playing Heather Locklear, Daphne Zuniga, Josie Bisset and Marcia Cross look nothing at all like them, in fact they look worse than the originals. When it comes to Grant Show, he should be thanking them for casting someone that makes him look like a male model. Finally, the rest of them are just average, not horrendous and not spectacular, but just there.
I hope the movie that airs on October 10th is better than the casting; but let’s be real, it won’t be.
Are able to guess who’s who in that cast photo? To see if you guessed right, then click here!
Watch with Kristin got their hands on the first cast picture from The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story and the promotional photo gets an F-. I mean it is like Lifetime doesn’t even care about casting these Unauthorized movies any more. They will just cast anyone in the part as long as they have the same hair color. On a positive note, the actress playing Jennie Garth looks like her. On a negative note, none of the actors look like the people they are playing. Who is that guy supposed to be behind Gabrielle Carteris? I am assuming that Andrea because of the glasses. Seriously, can the casting be any worse?
BTW we have until October 3rd to come up with a drinking game for this movie, so if you have one let me know.
