The hardcore fans of Lifetime’s Dance Moms all have their favorite moms picked out. Many viewers especially enjoy watching the antics of Christi Lukasiak, mother of talented dancer Chloe. During the past two seasons of Dance Moms, Christi has gained a bit of a reputation as a partier. Is the label justified? Keep reading to find out.
Christi Lukasiak has frequently been accused of spending too much time partying and drinking and too little time with her daughter Chloe. Who can forget the early episode in which studio owner Abby Lee Miller caught Christi and fellow mom Kelly downing cocktails at the bar while their daughters got ready to compete? But Christi thinks that the viewers bashing the mothers’ parenting skills have been a bit harsh.
Zap2It chatted with Christi about the show and all the judgements viewers have developed in the past year. When asked about the biggest misconception Dance Mom fans have, Christi immediately responded, “Well, for me, it’s that I’m this big party mom.” According to Christi, the other big misconception is “that I’m jealous of a 9-year-old.” Christi is referring, of course, to Maddie, an amazing dancer who is continually being pitted against Chloe. The devoted mother insists that her issues do not lie with Maddie, but with “Abby and her treatment of the children.”
The Maddie vs Chloe drama is likely to play out once again when Dance Moms resumes tonight. Get your Dance Moms fix at 9 pm EST on Lifetime.
