We’ve reached the half-way mark for the month of December, and you know what that means. Okay, yes, the holiday season is here, but what we’re really excited about is the return of Dance Moms come January 1st! Until then, you’ll just have to be satisfied with a few spoilers from Melissa Gisoni, mother of the talented Maddie and Mackenzie.
Filming is underway for season 3 of Dance Moms. Which means, of course, that famous mother Melissa Gisoni has been party to quite a bit of drama as of late. We’re assuming some of said drama has to do with the usual theme of Maddie being put on a pedestal while the other moms give her the evil eye. But according to Melissa, there’s more than just in-studio rivalry. “Things are definitely different this year. Lots of little surprises. Kathy is back, unfortunately. She is worse than ever. We had a really crazy, crazy weekend this past weekend.”
Melissa adds that, in spite of all the craziness, her kids still love spending time at the Abby Lee Dance Center. She feels that Abby has gotten a bad rap and is actually a lot nicer than viewers would ever suspect. “You don’t get to see the sweet part of Abby — the loving part of her — because she adores our kids. She really loves them. And the cameras don’t show the part when she’s hugging and kissing our kids, but she does…She has a heart of gold.”
Lifetime has a tight rein on Melissa and isn’t willing to let her give up too much information on the coming season. But during her chat with Wet Paint, the Dance Mom star did let slip that a newbie would be joining the group. She later mentioned,”There’s a really big surprise with the whole team, so [viewers] just have to really look for that,” and then added, “Yeah, it affects all seven girls.”
Sounds like it’s going to be a drama-heavy season of Dance Moms! Are you excited for the return of Abby Lee? Share your thoughts below!
