Cheryl Burke is the new Abby Lee Miller on Dance Moms
March 29th, 2017 under Dance Moms, Dancing with the Stars. [ Comments: none ]


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?

Abby Lee Miller quits Dance Moms again
March 27th, 2017 under Dance Moms. [ Comments: none ]


Every few weeks Abby Lee Miller takes to Instragram to quit Dance Moms and yesterday she did it again with the below post.

The majority of children that follow me may be fast asleep, however now is the critical time to make the following statement: I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS. FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING – TO NO AVAIL! TODAY, I WAS SO PROUD THAT I WENT AGAINST THE PRODUCER’S IDEA (ONCE AGAIN) TO ENTER A COMMAND PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUMBERS… “WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?” ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS! I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful! I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT! #dancemoms #season7 #ALDC #aldcalways #newbeginnings #aldcla #alllovedancecourage

Does this mean this is the end of the line for the show? While Lifetime has no comment, Entertainment Tonight got an answer from the production company. They said, “The show will continue shooting and the producers hope Abby returns to lead her team.” As of now the show is taping the 4 additional episodes that were ordered today, but the source told ET that the network wants the whole cast back or else. Something that is proving difficult for them because this is not the first time she quit the show, and I doubt it will be the last.

The only way for them to officially get rid of her, is if the Federal Government sends her to jail for Bankruptcy Fraud. The dance teacher reportedly plead guilty late last year and is waiting for her sentencing date.

When it comes to Dance Moms without Abby, I am welcome it. But I don’t think the show will survive without her.

Abby Lee Miller says her Dance Moms’ contract hasn’t been picked up yet
January 24th, 2017 under Dance Moms. [ Comments: none ]


If you are like me, then you really want Dance Moms, what was once your guilty pleasure, to end already. The show has been going down hill ever since Chloe and Christie left and it is time for it to dance its final swan song.
Looks like that might be the case because Abby Lee Miller took to Instragram and said that she has not been given a formal pick up for any more episodes after this season. Why did she feel the need to reveal this? She says that someone posted on an online site that she is auditioning for new dancers, which she is not. She doesn’t want to give false hope to the people sending in videos.
The delay on Lifetime’s part might be due to them waiting to find out if Miller will be serving jail time for allegedly committing bankruptcy fraud. Something prosecutes are reportedly asking for her to do. We can get that verdict as early as next month.
If she is sentenced to jail, can the show go on without her? I would say yes and it would probably be better. What do you think?

Is Dance Moms ending?
December 13th, 2016 under Dance Moms. [ Comments: 4 ]


It seems like every few months, Abby Lee Miller threatens the end of Dance Moms. So it is like the boy who cried wolf. But eventually, it is going to be true.
Is it now? She posted the above Instagram with this caption, “I thought this routine was amazing, a bittersweet Victory! Incredible job girls! 5 years of my life, seven seasons on TV in 130 Countries – I did my best for Lifetime and gave my all to the production of Dance Moms! Thank you for the many wonderful opportunities and the valuable lessons I learned.”
Does it mean it is over? Who knows? But every time she claims the end of her show, I look forward to it. It is like a bad drug I can’t stop taking and I need help.
It is a shell of what it was, so it is OK to put it out of our misery.

Abby Lee Miller is unbe-weave-able
December 8th, 2016 under Dance Moms. [ Comments: none ]


If you watch Dance Moms, then you know that Abby Lee Miller wears fake hair under her own. At first she clipped it in, but now she apparently got a weave in this clip that didn’t air. It wasn’t a good one, so it fell out right before she was going to the Emmys. She needed it sewn back in, so she asked one of the moms to do it because she didn’t want to sit in the salon for a few hours to get it done.
Let’s be honest, you were thinking she is too cheap to do it and if she can get it done for free, why not. Maybe if she spent more money, it would’ve been done right the first time.
When it comes to the mom who sewed it back in, lucky for Abby her first week. If it was one of the older moms, they probably would keep, accidentally, poking her in the head with the needle. Can’t you see them doing that?
