Maddie Ziegler has long been a big name in the dance world, thanks, of course, to her prominence on Dance Moms…but now she’s really attracting Facebook attention as the star of Sia’s Chandelier music video. Last night, the young dancer once again had the opportunity to perform in front of a huge television audience — this time, as a featured guest on Dancing With The Stars!
Abby Lee Miller is used to dealing with difficult parents in person and on Twitter, but on her new spin-off, she also squares off against fellow studio owners. Although the reality star finds her new studio rescue gig challenging, she says that the ladies of Dance Moms are far worse.
Studio dancers and their parents love the guilty pleasure that is Dance Moms, but they also find themselves scoffing at a show that, in many ways, fails to represent the culture of the average dance studio. Although Abby Lee Miller is willing to acknowledge that some things just don’t translate to television, she also believes that Dance Moms offers an accurate portrayal of life at the Abby Lee Dance Company.
Kristie Ray was aware of the drama involved in the average Lifetime show when she signed on for Raising Asia, a show that she insists is definitely not a spin-off of Dance Moms. Unfortunately, the famous mother is now reaping her rewards for agreeing to film yet another reality show; instead of following Asia Monet Ray’s promising dance career, the series mainly focuses on family drama.
She may be the frequent recipient of favoritism on Dance Moms, but it is virtually impossible to hate Maddie Ziegler. The reality star is adorable, and more importantly, super talented. She is in the midst of a remarkable rise to the top of the entertainment industry, having recently rubbed noses with several major celebrities at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Abby Lee Miller caused quite a stir on Facebook when she appeared as a guest judge on Dancing With The Stars. The Dance Moms star told Meryl Davis to fix her feet and, in turn, was roundly criticized by Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Abby is still bothered by the DWTS pro’s attitude. but that didn’t stop her from offering him a few words of wisdom.
Move over Honey Boo Boo — there’s a new child star taking over America’s television screens! Asia Monet Ray – originally of Dance Moms and Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition fame — is starring in her very own reality show! The little dancer says that her goal is to become the next Beyonce…but her mom is more interested in keeping her daughter grounded. Can these two seemingly incompatible goals be achieved at the same time?
The core group of gals (outside of Brooke and Paige Hyland, of course) are back for another season of Dance Moms, and this time, they are joined by a brand new group of girls and their crazy moms. Unfortunately, it looks like Kalani Hilliker is off the show for good — and despite what Abby Lee Miller claims, her departure has nothing to do with her mom’s boyfriend!
After learning of Abby Lee Miller’s engagement, Facebook fans hoped that they would eventually get to witness a crazy Dance Moms wedding spin-off. Unfortunately, it looks like viewers will have to stick with the upcoming Asia Monet Ray spin-off, because Abby Lee is not sporting an engagement ring!
Earlier this month, we learned that Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms was involved in a physical altercation with fellow Dance Moms star, Kelly Hyland. Hyland reportedly started the brawl, and after appearing in court, she was ordered to steer clear of Abby Lee Miller.
