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 email@example.com 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.
Tonight at 10p, Lifetime finds out what happens if you force two polar opposites to live together for 8 days. Each week, Living with the Enemy will have two people with different opinions on subjects that they are passionate about spend 4 days living in one person’s house and the next 4 in the other person’s. They will tackle issues like Proud to be Fat vs a Fitness Addict, a Strict Mom vs a Lax Mom and a Meat Eater vs a Vegan to name a few. Each person is dead set in their ways, but are they willing to listen to the other person when they canâ€™t escape them?
Tonight they have Kristy Love who is a Big Beautiful Woman and she loves her body, all 335 lbs of it. Michel Marley is a fitness guru and she HATES fat people.
Love moves in with Marley and her four children, and immediately Marley fat shames her. Marley keeps telling Love that she is going to die because she is so fat and forces Love to work out and eat the food she is eating. While they are eating dinner together, Love asks one of Marley’s daughter if she likes the food and the girl says no. It is then that Love points out, that this girl might grow up to have an eating disorder. Love feels that her mom is forcing her eating habits on her daughter and that might lead to a lot of consequences between the mother and the daughter.
As the women get to know each other, Love explains that issues with her mother is why she is the way she is. Then while they are talking, Love finds out that Marley has no friends, she shuts them out if they don’t meet her weight standards. In fact, at one point during the show, Marley says she doesn’t need friends because they will interfere with her working out schedule.
Now it is time for them to travel to Love’s house. Love wants Marley to hang with her friends who are big and beautiful like her. Marley starts to go off on them because they are fat and tries to make them feel bad about themselves. Thankfully, they don’t listen to her.
Marley keeps telling Love she is going to die, so they go to a doctor who checks her out to see if that is true. What the doctor says shocks Marley more, but it all goes in one ear and out the other.
Next up, Love invites Marley to take part in a photoshoot together. Love wears an outfit that shows off a lot of skin, while Marley wears a cute little black dress. While Love is taking pictures, Marley is taping her stomach to make herself look even skinnier than she already is. That’s right the skinny woman, feels the need to make herself look even skinnier.
Then Love takes Marley on a date with her and boyfriend and things get so heated between them that Marley starts saying “Oink, oink,” to the happy couple.
It all concludes with a final confrontation between the women that leads to Love kicking Marley out of her house.
Neither woman really took anything away from the experience, but we will. You see that both extremes are not the best, as we strive to remain in the middle. And yes, you will pick sides because how can you not.
Can Love afford to lose a few pounds? Yes, and Marley can certainly afford to find them.
In an upcoming episode a mom of four acts more like a friend to her kids, while another mom is more like a drill sergeant to her kids. It is interesting to see their different parenting styles and I am sure we are all going to side with the same parent because I can’t think of anyone who would want the other one as a mom.
These are just two of the episodes and I can’t wait to see the other 4 that they have completed. They include Same-Sex vs Traditional Marriage, Porn Star vs Anti-Porn Advocate and Anti-Polygamy vs. Multiple Wives.
I really hope this show does well because I want to see this show comeback for a second season. Mainly because I want to see the Liberal vs the Tea Party Member episode. What confrontation would you like to see?
Before we get to see what we want, we have to watch what they have. Tune in for a really interesting reality show that will make you change your opinion about something you thought you knew. Watching two extremists go at it, is the best way to get you to form an opinion.
This Saturday night at 8p be prepared to have your world rocked by A Deadly Adoption on Lifetime. The telemovie stars Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Lowndes and it is yet to be determined if it is a comedy or a drama. What seems to be evident is that the comedic actors had a great time getting serious for it. Maybe the two actors, who are consistently nominated but never winners, will finally win an award for their work in it.
Seriously, doesn’t it look like the ultimate Lifetime movie?
Finally, who else is blown away by Hidden Citizen’s version of Mike & the Mechanics’ Silent Runnings? I never thought that song would work like that, but it is actually better that way than the original.
