Every week, Anna Callegari and Sue Smith discuss the Lifetime show, Dance Moms, which chronicles the lives of the finest crazy bitches America has to offer.

IS IT?!  IS IT HER?!!?!? MADDIE KILLS.

Happy Hump Day!

Posted at 10:45am and tagged with: sia, chandelier, maddie ziegler, dance moms,.

Hey ya’ll it’s me, Anna!  I am eating oatmeal with coconut milk for breakfast and it is so delicious I don’t know what to do with myself!!  Maybe move to a commune where all we eat are coconut products??

Ok, let’s get down to business.  The pyramid is messed up.  Asia is on top, which I understand bc Abby ALWAYS loves the new girl.  Poor McKenzie is always getting sick, maybe she’s just sick of being drilled every day and wants to be a normal kid??

The group number is about conservatives and liberals in politics.  Jesus Abby, we get it!

She’s giving out a bunch of solos; Asia, Chloe, and Maddie!  Oh crap.  Chlo and Mad are like best friends why on earth do you keep pitting them against each other?

Oh wait, so now we’re realizing that this dance isn’t about politics in the White House, it’s about politics in dance. Abby is teaching these girls to be snarky bitches before they even learn the dance. Poor girls!

How old is Asia?  She looks a like a muscular 4 yr old?  There’s no way she can pick up this routine by not even practicing it!  But instead, Abby gives Asia a hot jazz number where she plays Rosie the Riveter, who of course, Kelly has no idea who that is.  Kelly’s the biggest dum dum on this show.

I wonder if Asia drinks protein shakes every morning.

 

Abby was being super sweet to Chlo during their solo rehearsal, so we will see…

Guys, this oatmeal really is so good!  But it’s weird eating a hot breakfast when you’re sunburned.  Yesterday it was 80 degrees here!  I was outside with my family eating all day (bc that’s what we do) and ONE OF MY ARMS got sunburned.  Just one.  I look like an unloved child.  I bet when Paige goes to the beach her mom forgets to put sunscreen on one of her arms :(

Melissa wants to get her kids homeschooled.  Maddie is all for it.  McKenzie is A NORMAL KID.  She wants to be at school with her friends like a normal kid. She doesn’t want to spend her whole life dancing every minute.  I bet when the camera’s off of her she lets Melissa have it. I really hope she does. Poor girl.

Now would be a great time for our fave Kenzie gif.

Wow. Kelly looks exhausted.  The bags under her eyes are insane.  But thank god the women try to talk some sense into Melissa about the home schooling! These girls are so good at dancing they could get a free ride into a good college, but if they’re home schooled who knows?  Also, let me just say I know nothing about home schooling.  Looks like Melissa just wants her kids to be celebrities.  STAGE MOM.

I can’t take Asia’s muscles!  Also, where the f is Cathy?  She needs to be in every episode.

Abby wants the moms to cut up flags to make costumes.  Wow.  IS ABBY A TERRORIST?!?!? In Girls Scouts, if one flag even touch the ground you had to burn it. Remember? 

Abby makes a good point about Maddie and Chloe getting better because they are competing against each other.  But it’s still kind of messed up.

Can someone please tell us about Preachers’ Daughters?  I feel like we should watch this, Sue! Sue here. Anna, I tried to pick it up in the middle of one episode but it might be too late? Like, since we didn’t start from the beginning we have no idea what’s happening. I wonder if it’s on demand. Also, BIG RICH ATL!

JILL SUCKS.

Why is she tattling on Asia?  Ugh, everyone hates her and her soulless daughter Kendall.  Just leave, please!

The costumes look crappy.  Is ALDC running out of $$ or something?

Maddie gives Asia a terrifying “pep talk” before they hit the stage.

This dance kind of sucks.  Also, that face the judge makes is hilarious and terrible.

Abby is having all the girls vote for Maddie or Chloe and she’s terrible.  This is messed up!!  You monster!!!

ASIA IS FIERCE!  How does a girl that young have so much sass?!  And that one eyebrow lift at the end?  I love that chick. Even my boyfriend was like, “That was good.”

Chloe is wearing kind of a losery dress for her solo.  Ooh but it does look beautiful when she turns.  She looks stunning, she is so graceful and her lines are beautiful.  I think her and Maddie are both wonderful but they are two totally different dancers!  Like Chloe could be a rockette with those legs, Maddie couldn’t—but Maddie is still a wonderful and beautiful dancer!! Her solo is a bit boring though, eeek!  SUE HERE: STOP SUCKING MADDIE’S DICK!

I can’t believe the group even got second place.  These judges were too generous.

(Btw, what’s with the judge’s zoot suit outfit?)

Asia gets first place!  YAYAYAYY!!!!

I can’t believe Maddie won.  That’s insane. Her dance was beautiful. Poor Chloe has been trampled on for too long!  

Also, Abby needs to lay off the bronzer a smidge.

Maddie wince the popular vote by four. That’s some real student council shit. Chloe, you are a STRONG BLACK WOMAN.

Asian yawns. You’re right girl. Also, Abby is wearing a huge engagement ring?! Boyfriend: “I hate this fucking show so much.” AND HE NEVER SWEARS.

This episode gets three out of five candy apples. Where’s Cathy?!

Posted at 10:30am and tagged with: dance moms, dance moms season 3, abby lee miller, asia, big rich atlanta, dance, suntan lotion, maddie ziegler, aldc,.

Hey guys! Sue here! Long time no see. I have so much to tell you guys. First, when I hear Vanessa Hudgens’ name, in my head I think, “Vanessa Hug and Kiss.” Am I the only one? Second, Anna and I totally spaced last week and didn’t do the recap. Oops. But it looks like we missed a lot. Third, I went to Soul Cycle last night and a.) Allison Williams was in my class! and b.) OMG I am in so much pain this morning.

This is what Sue was doing everyone.  Sue, you crazy!

I think that about covers it. Oh! Anna and I went for a sexy oyster dinner last night and now my jeans don’t fit right. Oops.

Sue, don’t even get me started I had such sexy dreams last night!  Oysters make you horny!  Right?!?!

Oh, the pyramid is happening. Kelly has a nice new chestnut brown color in her confessional. Maybe it’s just the lighting? It brings out her eyes.

Abby says Asia from her Ultimate Dance Competition is going to be showing. Ohhkay. Whatever. I’ve been so mucusy lately. I was deathly sick last week and I couldn’t shake it. I swear. I was in bed for three days. Which is so unlike me. But, anyway, I feel better now I just am like a snot volcano fountain over here.

So what did I miss last week? Melissa got married and the choreographer wore some weird 80s thigh-high stuffs?

The theme for this is reincarnation and stuff. Yo, what’s your feelings about Long Island Medium? I LOVE her. I think she is so real and spot on. But all of our friends were saying at dinner last night that she was a sham.

Anna here, Sue and I love Theresa Caputo!  My friend is going to be on an episode next season!!  Wooooooo!

 

Cathy and her gimmicky Candy Apple’s are in this episode, PJ (praise Jesus.) Her guest choreographer is John Culbertson. A very tan man who is friends with Abby… Why all the guest choreographers?

Remember when we first met Cathy?  I wonder if she’s still obsessed with purses.

Abby tells Melissa she’s thinking of getting Broadway Baby stuffed. That’s the weirdest shit I ever heard. When I was in high school I used to party at this girl Amanda Paul’s house, and they had a stuffed albino squirrel on top of the TV (before TVs were flat). It was the grossest thing ever.

Cathy Candy Aps is choreographing something about the Depression. The moms call Asia’s Mom Skinny Kristi. How rude!

The moms try to intimidate her about the contract and tell her that if she leaves before a year she’ll owe Abby $100K and she goes, “Thank god I have $100,000.” WERK!

Abby asks Kristi if they are being nice to her. Oh, go cry into your taxidermied dog, Abby. Stop trying to start shit.

Kristi is in Mufasa’s seat on the buss. OOOOh lawwwwwd watch out. These girls got their assigned seats! YOU GUYS! DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ME AT SOUL CYCLE? I asked the guy on the bike next to my friend if he would switch with me so I could sit next to her and he was like, “But this is my bike.” Super mean. NO IT AIN’T! It doesn’t have your name on it! He finally did but he was SO RUDE!!!

We get it Sue, you work out with celebrities!!!!  Meanwhile I’m over here eating a sausage egg and cheese sandwich.  Guys, I tried to do this paleo diet and it just isn’t working for me!  Girl’s gotta eat cheese and bread!

Abby goes to the taxidermy farm and homeboy’s got zebras and lizards and shit. You guys watch that episode of the Kardashians where Scott kills a gator? Yuck. That scene where they skin the gator has been haunting me for the last week.

The moms try to stir some shit and speculate whether Asia will replace Kenz. Please. Just. Please.

I love all these hallway shots of Abby approaching. They’re so dramatic and amazing. Abby gives John a huge hug to intimidate Cathy Candy Aps.

Asia’s solo is great and I love the music. But. What’s with the weird bunny/dog costume? It totally doesn’t match.

The Candy App’s duet is very Dance Moms Miami. Remember those crazies? Also, where did Cathy get this random girl from?

The trio is great and I love their sassy orange outfits.

Cathy Candy Apps group number is actually interesting. Even my boyfriend said, “I feel like this is really good, right? That choreographer guy looks like something from Twin Peaks.”

Abby’s group number is good… but like, medium.

Asia wins first place, the trio wins second, Cathy’s boys win a perfect score first place and my boyfriend says, “Told you that was good.”

Then, of course, we cut to the dressing room and do a Cathy/Abby fight. Abby needs to take it easy on her voice!

 

This episode gets 4 out of 5 candy apples, because we love Cathy and Abby in the same room together!

Hey guys! Sue here. Do you believe what I just did? I roasted some brocooli and made myself some quinoa like a motherfucking monster. That’s what happens when you quit your dayjob out of nowhere with no life plan.

Guys, honestly, Anna did the recap last week so I didn’t watch the episode. I’m sorry! I think I was serving couscous to some finance guy or something. So, what I’m asking is, why was So and So in a wheelchair? Doesn’t matter. She’s at the bottom of the pyramid. Maddie is third and Kendall is second. Wow. I guess Mufasa’s bribes are finally working. Nia is at the top! Finally! I love her.

Listen, I was in Pittsburgh this weekend and I opened my stepdad’s fridge and I found some hot eggs. Pennsylvania is a weird ass place. (This should take u to a pic of hot eggs from my insta http://instagram.com/p/W4gyDqzGIk/)

The group number this week is about Rosa Parks and Abby is hemming and and hawing about giving her the role. Abby? NIA IS YOUR ONLY BLACK GIRL. You ain’t got no choice. Then she gets on Holly’s ass about her outfit? Bitch, you better go on because you out of yo damn mind.

Abby tells the girls that they ain’t working hard enough because they’re too concerned about their Instagram likes. THAT’S TRUE! I like your pics erryday! Also, I get so obsessed with my precious likes. OBSESSED.

Yes! It’s a Candy Apple’s episode. We get a shot of Vivi right away. And Cathy is wearing some 90s-era burgundy lipstick, like I know Anna likes. Cathy look just like Anna when we filmed that video. Did you guys all watch that?

Oh god, they’re doing a Candy Apple’s/Gangam Style dance. I honestly can’t think of anything more cliche. This morning I saw a Pistachios commercial with Psy and dancing pistachios and I just wanted to barf.

Abby is taking Holly shopping? What? How is ABBY a fashion authority? Mufasa tags along because she’s a conniving biotch. Of course she tries to get white little Kendall to play Rosa Parks. She don’t stop.

Cut back to Candy Apple’s! Vivi! Please drop some gold, Vivi. Please, oh please! Cathy gives her a ballet class and she looks more uncomfortable than my little brother at a Buddhist meditation retreat.

Honestly, if only you guys could see the gchat Anna and I are having right now. Hint: it has to do with your butt.

Abby gives Kendall a weird facial expression tutorial. I dunno. I just picture Abby making those faces in the mirror alone every morning, don’t you.

Abby finally gives Nia the Rosa Parks role after admitting she was just doing a mini little mindfuck. I have chili all over my mouth and quinoa all over my hands. I’m such a hippie sometimes.

Yo, you guys ever watch Mackenzie’s makeup tutorials? They are just adorable. Part of me thinks she really lacks supervision. 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWXHGhz7XkY

I gotta tell you about this epic nap I took at about 5pm today. I slept for like, 45 minutes. Then I woke up and I had no idea what time it was or where I was. One of those. Cats all over me. Perfect.

Why does Cathy Candy Apple’s have guest choreographers every week? She cain’t do that shit on her own? Abby never does. She fights with him and it’s pretty great because he tells her she’s a phony.

Oh! Also, my friend was dogsitting this chocolate lab today and I looked into her eyes and I swear I saw God.

Cathy gets a plaque from a City Councilman and Vivi dances like a monkey and I almost wet myself. GIF REQUEST PLS! She is even wearing a coat like that Ikea monkey. Anyway, this whole Councilman thing looks incredibly staged. And YES! Christi points out the grammatical apostrophe mistake. FINALLY, AN ALLY!!!!!

Cut to Cathy and Vivi at a place called Alterations by Shelly. Ugh, Candy Apples is SO low budge. I don’t know why she makes her try on all the boys costumes. Also, she asks Vivi if she knows what Wall Street is and then tell her it was a movie? Um, no. Idiot.

The girls’ costumes are too slutty. Sorry. I said it. Not age appropriate at all.

You guys watching Preacher’s Daughters? Worth it?

I do like this guest choreographer at the Candy Ap’s though. “You missed your cue? Why? It’s showtime.” He’s so right. When it’s showtime, nothing else matters.

Hello!! Anna here, taking over this last half of the recap because let’s face it—these 2 hour episodes are INTENSE!  I have so many opinions and feelings about this episode right now, I can’t wait to write about it!!  Also, if you haven’t seen it yet, this is Sue and I as Abby and Cathy, please enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIWGfZxxKLY

Sorry, I know I’m plugging our video again but I just can’t help it when Cathy’s here!!

JILL IS THE WORST PERSON EVER.  MUFASA IS THE WORST!! CATHY IS THE WORST MOTHER EVER!  Also, I hate Candy Apple’s but I love K-Pop more than anything!  I’m sorry, I’ve just been holding it in the past hour, I’m so happy I can let it out.

Alright, back to the recap.

Ok, I cannot believe this scene with Cathy and Vivi.  Why is she making Vivi try on these terrible costumes?  I don’t understand why she’s dressing Vivi up like a terrorist?!  The camo hat, the bandana over her face, and the horribly ugly “nice suit” reminds me of the terrorists from Zero Dark Thirty.  Which was a terrifying movie btw.

Chloe and Paige look like ultimate prostitutes.  But they also look fabulous.  Those costumes are PERFECT for instagram!

Costumes tonight are literally amazing.  All of these girls look like the black ladies in church from “The Help” with those little hats.  

OMG Cathy has hired bodyguards.  This is hilarious.  When my little brother came into town I felt like I had a bodyguard.  He’s 230lbs and 6 ft tall and he was always waking one step behind me bc he doesn’t know New York.  It was a really nice feeling.  

Poor So and So can’t handle doing all of these girls make up!  But when it comes down to it, looks like all she’s doing is lipstick.  Mufasa is such a BITCH.

Kendall’s Solo:

First off, great costume.  Seriously this episode has the best costumes ever!  I mean sure, she’s doing some of the faces Abby taught her but she still looks dead inside.  Poor girl has had her soul sucked out by Mufasa!  Ok.  But that wink at the end was totally adorbs.  I don’t know how to wink.  Everytime I try people think I’m having a stroke.


Maddie’s Solo:

I love how LES MIS her costume is!  She is a goddamn beautiful dancer.  Seriously, tears get in my eyes when I see her dance.  It’s truly beautiful.  Just look at her face, it is 1000x more expressive than Kendall’s.  I’m sorry Kendall, but you have a lot to learn from this beautiful dancer.  Maddie I love you!!!  Haha Cathy couldn’t even look up to watch the dance, what a BIATCH!

Jaylin? sp? Solo:

He looks like a mini stripper.  His dad is a piece of work, shouting like he’s at a football game.  I’m sure he wanted his kid to play football so badly.  OMG he actually started stripping!  Cathy calls it a “costume change” but when you take off a big part of your costume and throw it on the stage, well, that’s called stripping Cathy!

Wow, this is so sad, after the dance he’s beating himself up.  Poor guy!  You’re a great dancer, you’re just stuck with a horrible woman as your dance teacher!  Switch to team Abby!!

Why does Kelly keep saying no to the duet?  Just shut up and blow your nose Kelly!

The Duet:

Ok, Paige and Chloe are stunning.  They could be twins for sure!  The dance was good, but it is kind of crazy how much more advanced Chloe is than Paige.  Don’t get me wrong, Paige is an amazing dancer!  But Chloe makes it look so much easier.  I miss Chloe’s solos.

OMG the shot of these bodyguards monitoring the Candy Apple’s pep talk cracked me up.

Gangam Group Dance:

This is a weird remix of Gangam Style.  I personally would have enjoyed it way more if they actually did the Gangam Style dance, oh wait!  There’s a little bit in there!!  Ok, Jaylin is awesome.  Those ridiculous glasses, he’s adorable!  He’s like that group’s little So and So.

Rosa Parks Group Dance:

I cannot take this little hats!  I hope none of them fall off!  They need to beat those boys!  This dance is beautiful, Nia is wonderful.  Both at dancing and acting.  I thought the whole dance was beautiful!  But Brooke meandering aimlessly was a little awkward…  I really hope they still get first place though!

Jaylin is such a cocky lil boy, thinking he’s going to win while he got 6th.

Kendall got 2nd and Maddie got 1st.  Perfect!

Chloe and Paige got 1st place!!!!!!!  Thank god!  Now Kelly won’t kill herself!!

Also, this whole eat crow bit is too much for me.

Rosa Parks got first place!  Wooohoooo!!  Seriously, that dance was amazing. Here is a bootleg copy of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2XdAxBrh2Q

OMG now the Dance Moms are plotting their revenge on the Candy Apple’s to gloat this is ridiculous.

Cathy tells them to suck in their guts haha I love how the one time she actually “needs them” the bodyguards are nowhere to be found.

This episode gets 5 out of 5 apples.  Cathy + amazing costumes + amazing dancing!  I’m sold!

Could have used more Vivi though …oh well!

Hey guys!  It’s me, Anna!  Sue is too busy being pretty and famous to write this week so I get to talk about Maddie as much as I want!  Muahahahahah.

Omg the previews for this episode look as insane as the show is.  Why am I surprised?  Of course it’s insane, that’s why we love this place.

Did anyone read that book about the crazy Chinese mom?  Abby reminds me of her.

Abby’s being really strange about them getting second, maybe she’s not screaming bc she’s losing her voice??

McKenzie, Nia, and Paige are at the bottom, what else is new.
Holy shit!  Maddie is next!  Who’s on the top???
Kendall is next, and then Brooke is on top!

Of course Brooke is, she’s the oldest.  It’s about time. Mufasa gets a huge boner bc Kendall is second in the pyramid. Picture Mufasa from the Lion King with a boner.

Poor Chloe isn’t even on the pyramid bc Abby is still punishing her for having a psycho mom.

Abby wants to do a dance about the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy in the military, WTF? Brooke, Kendall, and Maddie get solos.

Jesus, if they keep adding in dumb stuff like Abby yelling at the moms bc this is a 2 hr episode I’m gonna puke my Fage all over the place.  Guys, I love Fage yogurt!

Melissa starts talking about her wedding to another man who’s wedding band she isn’t wearing…I don’t understand her secret life.

I don’t think Abby understands the military.  But it’s hip hop and I’m pumped!  Why the hell is she being so mean to So and So?  Don’t be mean to poor lil So and So!!!

Ummm WTF? Did the producers find some sad soul to be Abby’s boyfriend?  This conversation is so staged.  I feel like there might not be anyone on the phone?? :(

Christi and Kelly are actually cracking me up.

OMG ABBY REVEALS THAT SHE MET THIS GUY IN A GAS STATION! 

Kendall rehearses her solo, did Abby say she was “dead in the face”?  Probably. Kenzie is dancing with a hurt foot. Melissa if your daughter is hurt she shouldn’t dance! Maddie gives great face even in rehearsal, I love that girl.  

Abby gets her nails done for her date.  This is an awkward scene.  Why do the moms come and join her? Pennsylvania is so weird.

Jill is trying to help Abby look beautiful for her date by putting a scarf on her that covers up her neck and face.  That might have been the smartest thing Abby’s ever done.

Jill is grinding by herself, I think all of the moms need to leave and go buy vibrators.

Maddie’s solo is full of new cutting edge moves, I can’t wait!  Love it.

HOLY SHIT LOUIE!  He’s wearing a bow tie and has a patchy beard.  Wtf. He’s clearly a gay intern at Lifetime that the producers paid to date her.  Why are the moms badmouthing Abby to him before their date?  OMG.  This is such an awkward episode!  Abby does look super cute…for Abby.

Ummm he rented the entire restaurant out for their first date?  Clearly he’s embarrassed to be seen with her or this is a ridiculous producer ploy!  Abby admits to him she has a long distance relationship—with who??  OH NOW WE GET IT.  He’s writing a book, so this is research.

Abby laughs like a squealing pig.  Abby, I don’t think he was kidding! He reveals that he used to be a male stripper—wtf is this show!?!!?!?!!

Brooke’s solo looks hippy dippy and awesome.  She would have been really cool to smoke pot with in the 60’s right guys?  HEY!  I just watched Forrest Gump again, I hadn’t seen it in forever I forgot how wonderful of a movie it is. So good!

Mufasa is getting Simba new headshots.  Why so much makeup??  Her hair looks great though.  Also, can we acknowledge how weird this studio is??  Why on earth does Jill push Kendall off the stool and try to take her own headshots?

Now the drunks are trying to find second hand wedding dresses in downtown Pittsburgh, but they’re all in a limo so I guess that means they’re classy?

Why on earth would you serve big fatty cupcakes and have LIT CANDLES at a fitting???  I feel like wedding dresses are some of the most flammable things… This scene is all fun and what not but I can’t help but think of the best scene in Bridesmaids.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6gChlcBDmQ

Kenzie finally gets to go home bc of her hurt foot.

Sorry guys, I got so distracted watching the best scene in movie history. “I don’t think the kids really give a SH*T what the name of their dance is.” THANK YOU KELLY. Christi has such great one liners in this episode I love it.

Abby brings the moms down to have them explain to their kids what being gay means.  This show is so fucking weird. Kelly has a weird conversation with her daughters about gay boys who dance. Kenzie has a sprain and she can’t dance for 72 hours :(

Kendall’s Solo! Her costume looks great, her face still looks dead though.  Poor girl has no soul!!!!

Maddie’s Solo! Her costume is kind of like a lil white girl Miss Cleo.  Woah, this is an intense dance though and she’s killing it!  That spin into a jump is so badass.  Say what you want about Abby but she is a damn good choreographer!!  I’m so happy Sue is not writing with me right now bc she would probably have something mean to say about Maddie but seriously, how could you say anything mean about that girl when she pours her soul out onto the stage like that?  It was so good!  Come on Suzy, can you please admit that Maddie is awesome?!? MADDIE IS A DEMON.

Kendall you suck.  Mufasa, just face it, your kid is boring. Umm guys.  I have an addiction I’m struggling with. I’m addicted to those Cadbury creme eggs.  Everytime I go to Duane Reade I just have to buy one!  They are right next to the checkout, makes it so easy!

Now there’s some weird conspiracy that Kenzie isn’t actually hurt.  Why do the moms care?

Brooke’s Solo! Brooke looks great, but she does slip a bit at one point.  Oh well, I still love her.

What is the deal with Kenzie and Melissa?  Jesus, this two hour episode is KILLING ME!

Now they’re doing this weird interrogation thing? This hip hop dance looks like it’s going to be awesome.  These girls are ready!!  Get it girls!

Group Dance! Nia’s shirt is awesome. Kendall sucks.  Nia and Maddie are killing it at this dance!  Also, Brooke’s tumbling in the beginning was awesome.

KENDALL IS SO BORING.  

Ok, awards. Brooke gets 2nd Place. Kendall gets 4th Place. Maddie gets 2nd Place?!?!? Group is 7th Place?!?!

This episode gets 4 out of 5 apples, but only bc we got to see Abby on the weirdest date in the world.

Posted at 12:22pm and tagged with: dance moms, abby lee miller, chloe luksiak, maddie ziegler, tiger moms, lifeless eyes, lifetime, sue smith, anna callegari, fage, limos,.

Hi everyone! Sue here. I’m so sleepy. I just had a coffee and I was high as a kite but now I’m crashing.

Anna here!  I’m eating the most bizarre foods in my house for breakfast, stay tuned.  I’m starting with candy egg whoppers.

Abby comes in right away and says Broadway Baby died. Aww, I’m sad for Flabby. Every day I look in my cat’s eyes and dread the day she’s going to die. I will just be so sad.

image


Anna here, I just started sobbing when Abby came in and said Broadway Baby died.  I mean sure, I’m on a ton of sudafed and cough syrup but still—SO EMOTIONAL!  I actually feel bad for Flabby!!!

Nia is almost at the top of the pyramid! YGG! Maddie is back on top. EVERYTHING IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD. Except Chloe is still on suspension and Kenize ain’t in the group number. WAH.

Paige looks STUNNING!  Right??  Maddie, Kenzie, and Nia look stunning as well—because they’re not wearing any make up!  Girls, you’re in rehearsal don’t wear make up!!

OMG Black Patsy is coming back. I can’t wait. She is like Cathy Candy Apple’s TIMES A MILLION. She is what my dreams look like. Now that Broadway Baby is dead, maybe Abby will sell me her dog stroller so I can take my cats for a walk and I can never be without their love.

image

In Abby’s confessional where she is wearing the green shirt, she looks super drugged up. You takin dat Klonopin, girl?

Sixteen is pretty old for a dog. My cats are nine and five already.

The moms have the idea of switching the group number and dedicating it to Abby. That’s the dumbest shit I ever heard because Abby is gonna be mad pissed. Duhhhhhh.

This dog is actually a bit terrifying.

image

Christi and Kelly are still fighting about like, whatever. Oh no, then we see a shot of Abby going home, to her all-white house and crying in front of a picture of Broadway Baby with her mom. I love animals so much. Did you know that I was such a weird kid that I just didn’t “get” pets? My friend Rachel had this big boxer named Pochantas and she was so jumpy. I just hated that thing. We had a cat and I liked it fine but I never thought it whispered into my heart or anything. I dunno. It took me a long time to develop empathy because I have a learning disability that’s OTS.

OH! Guess what happened this week! Noodle and Brindle (my cats) fight all the time. They always have. Just like, swat at each other and stuff. But yesterday I found a little scar on Brin’s ear and it must be from Noodle! What a bitch! I put Neosporin on it, don’t worry.

Black Patsy. Can people call me White Ass Sue?  

image

Yes.  But only if you can call me Honky Anna.

Abby’s mom looks mad sick. Also, I thought she lived in Florida? Abby is so sad. Maybe she is a real human.

image

OMG this scene between Abby and her mom is so depressing.  I’m eating ranch flavored wheat thins for breakfast with slices of ricotta salata cheese on them—A CRY FOR HELP?!

Who’s Nyala? We’ve never seen THIS choreographer before. I mean. Good.

But her name isn’t Patsy. It’s Kya. So I don’t get it. I mean, I guess I could be White Ass Margaret if I wanted to be.

Noodle is kneading my flabby belly like she DIDN’T give Brin a ear scab.

Kelly and Christi get into a shouting match. Pretty sure this is the first time we’ve seen this sort of in-fighting among the moms. (Oops, just typed “mongs.”)

Abby dramatically returns to the studio for the sake of Broadway Baby. Direct quote: “Nothing makes me happier than working with Maddie.” LOL!

image

She’s pissed about the surprise choreography, obvs. Did they honestly think that would be ok? Abby is so emotionally vulnerable right now!

I don’t know about you, but White Ass Margaret loves Black Patsy. I think it’s maybe racist to call someone “ghetto,” but she’s SO GHETTO!!! I think on the inside White Ass Margaret has always been a Black Patsy.

I think Nia looks adorable in her costume. Her dance is very traditionally jazzy, but she gives good face.

image

Madison is a stripper name these days. I always forget that’s Maddie’s full name… Yeah, Madison is someone who works at Hooters. Maddie is a sweet Southern Belle.

Maddie dedicates her solo to Broadway Baby and Abby breaks down. The rest of the moms go nuts. Jeez shut UP already. Also, her costume looks like the North Korean flag.

Oops, got distracted watching videos of myself read affirmations that were on my computer. I literally had no idea they were on there.  Jesus Sue, be more of an ACTOR why don’t ya??

JK, I get distracted watching videos of Suzy too.  She’s really funny and beautiful.

The kids are improvising the group number. SHIT IS WHACK. White Ass Margaret is JUST APPALLED. I think it actually looks good. It’s nice to do something refreshing and happy for once.

Black Patsy is trying to pick a fight with Dr. Holly and she’s so not into it. I really think Holly is the most emotionally stable person on this show.

Also, I like seeing Abby vulnerable like this. She’s not as mean. Black Patsy starts picking fights with everyone… Yo, how are we all just cool with calling this woman Black Patsy?

Christi is too scared to fight because she’s afraid Black Patsy’s gonna pull out her weave. You know she would’ve!!!!

Christi and Kelly make up. And Black Patsy gets kicked out of the competition. I mean, she just wanted attention anyway so whatever.

Nia gets a costume award! After Abby made fun of it! Yay!

Nia gets third place, Maddie gets first, and the group number gets first even though the moms choreographed it.

Yo, they do a Broadway Baby montage at the end and that’s kind of an ugly ass dog. She’s pretty fat.

I can’t wait to see Abby go speed dating on the next episode!

Aww, little Noodle has the hiccups. I love her!

This episode gets 4 out of 5 candy apples because BWAY BABY IS RIDICULOUS.

Hey Everyone!  We’re back!  And in case you were wondering, our show was awesome!  We’re going to post some videos soon!

Now for the recap!

So, Christi and Chloe are not there because they were suspended last week—eek!  But look who is in the parking lot?!  C&C!! (like C&C music factory! Reminds me of the days when I was alone in my room writing in my diary with the ballet slipper on the cover. It had a lock but I could never remember where I hid the key so the lock was mainly for decoy purposes.)


Christi’s weave looks awesome.  But she’s apologizing to Abby and Abby refuses to acknowledge her… Weird.  But woah!  Abby is pissed.  Also, her fake lashes are super glam wowzas! (Anna, I forgot to tell you that this new girl at my job does lash extensions for super cheap. Like $50. I definitely am going to get them. But Austin doesn’t want me to because he thinks it’s a slippery slope. Fillers are next! Ugh, jk. Maybe.)

They just showed a flashback to last week, I still cannot believe the Candy Apple’s won. WE HATE THEM!

It’s so sad that Abby takes out her anger on the moms on the girls!  But then again, the moms are so selfish and have no respect for their daughters dance careers!  They KNOW how to push Abby’s buttons and they DO!

Guys, I just ate so many wasabi peas and I have no idea why.  They are so spicy!  My nose won’t stop running!


Anyways, the pyramid is self explanatory and Maddie is finally back on top! (yay!)

The group routine is called “Money is the root of all evil” WOWZAS!

Abby is giving the moms a shit ton of work to do with the costumes, money costumes made of money. Brilliant.

Maddie gets a solo and Brooke does too!  I can’t WAIT!

This money routine is gonna be super slutty.  Oh mi oh my.

Christi and Kelly are in a lover’s quarrel. Jesus girls please make up!  This episode better end with the two of them getting wasted in Kelly’s kitchen like the old days.

This drama between the moms is soooo lameeeee please cut back to the dancing!

Abby is being so mean to Chloe and it makes us sad in our hearts. Because Chloe is a sweetheart and just because Christi is a psycho hose beast doesn’t mean Chloe is too!

Lil Brooke has got braces and ombre!  Stop being so adorable! God, I wish I could get down to my middle school ballet class weight. THIS IS THE BEST YOUR BODY WILL EVER BE! I

Abby is hard core in this episode.  Jeez Louise! Nia is determined to get her duet back and that’s adorable.  I love Nia. Paige just said “scurrrry” instead of “scary”.  More Paige speaking please!!

Melissa and Christi are meeting at a super sketchy bar with a single hanging light in between them. I feel like Beetlejuice might stop by to hang out.  GUYS. Remember how hot Michael Keaton was?  Is it weird to be turned on by Beetlejuice?  WILL SOMEONE FIND ME A BOYFRIEND?!?!?!?!

Not weird, Anna! Also, ALEC BALDWIN was so hot in that movie too. Here’s the best story: I was strolling down University talking to my friend and all of the sudden we look to our left and see Alec Baldwin walking two white Malteses wearing pink leopard print coats. He saw us look at him and just waved. That’s a man who LOVES being Alec Baldwin.


ANYWAY, everyone has braces this season and there’s nothing cuter!

Maddie has an “edgy” solo.

This episode is BORING I THINK.  Also, I just ate so much bread and butter. Who do I think I am?  A goddamn princess in the French revolution??  I love Les Mis. I wish I lived in Les Mis. Sometimes I feel like my life is Les Mis because I’m a prostitute that needs the money to pay for my daughter who lives with an innkeeper and ooops I have turberculosis too!!  Haha, just kidding it’s 2013.  Nobody is an innkeeper anymore!

Why does Abby punish the kids when their moms are crazy?!?!?  It’s so sad!!!  The girls are so good and all they’re trying to do is dance.

Sue, say what you want about Maddie but she nailed it in that solo!  It was beautiful! (Sue here. MUST BE HARD TO BE SO PERFECT AND BRILLIANT ALL THE TIME.)

Brooke does her weird little chinstand thing. What else is new? The shot of all the girls watching Brooke offstage is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Now that she’s older, I don’t want to see the same tricks—I want to see some heartfelt dancing!!

Ooooh the duet!  And it’s musical theater!  I love musical theater!  (This is true. Anna has a singing voice like a swan.) Also, this is the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen.  

Abby is proud of all the dancing!  Oh, this is just swell.  Love it.  I’m so happy So and So was able to keep up in the group number!  It was adorable!

Ok.  Did anyone just see Mufasa do a shitty gangam style?  GIF REQUEST PLS.

OMG.  The scenes for next week made me cry.  Poor Abby!  Broadway Baby dies?!?! STOP!

This episode gets three candy apples. And we’re being generous because we feel bad about BwyBBY.

Posted at 10:22am and tagged with: dance moms, abby lee miller, maddie ziegler, chloe luksiak, les mis, wasabi peas, alec baldwin,.

It’s Anna here, and my roommate still smells and I just ate a whole bunch of chocolate almond butter cookies and I’m literally bouncing off the walls!!!!!! Wheeeeeeee.

WOW Just reminding all of you NYC people to catch our show about reality tv this Valentine’s Day! Link for tickets is here!

We are so excited for this show, and on Friday we are actually shooting a video for the show about CATHY AND ABBY!  We cannot wait to show you guys!

Ok, so pumped for this show to START WOOOOOOOO Is that lil chick coming back to twirl her f-ing baby face off?!?!?!  She better be!  Also, the fact that Cathy and Vivi are still in the opening gives me SO MUCH HOPE.

Woah. Looks like Kendall and Maddie got second place.  Oooops!  I wonder how this will effect the pyramid?!?!!?

Christi looks like an ex-showgirl in that sparkly outfit.  Mufasa looks like a washed up cokehead from Studio 54.  Kind of like the Mike Myers character?  Anyone watch that movie?  It’s great.

I’m so happy to see a lot of the girls without make-up!  All of you girls are beautiful!  We love seeing your beautiful faces!

Kendall and Maddie and Nia ON THE BOTTOM
Paige and Chloe IN THE MIDDLE
So and So is ON TOP!!! Love that chick.  Her teeth are so cute, mine looked like that before I got braces.  Braces were the worst.

So looks like we have two replacements coming in, Katie and Bella—they look like adults. My friend babysits this kid named Tyler and he looks like a manchild. Seriously. He’s four but he has the face of an adult and he is too big for a stroller. It’s the creepiest shit. We gave him a cookie the other day and he was like, “NOM NOM NOM.”

Ok, Christi totally has a weave.  Anyway, I cannot wait for this contortionist routine.  It seems vaguely racist. Abby’s forte!

Jesus christ Mufasa, your outfit is bad enough why add that heinous boa?

Guys. I’m really regretting eating all of those cookies. They are not sitting well.  My eye is also twitching. I’m like a freaking baby when it comes to sugar! Don’t even let me NEAR some Haribo.

Melissa is confronting Abby blah blah blahh

HOLY SHIT.  Do you guys remember Skipper from Sex and the City Season 1? He was Carrie’s weird friend that was in love with Miranda.  He is in a COMMERCIAL now. Acting careers always make me sad.

More shots of the girls doing acro, less shots of the moms complaining about bullshit!

Chlo gets a solo!  I hope she doesn’t Chlo it …

Maddie’s got braces!  Clear braces!  Aww she’s adorable!!

OMG. Abby is crying to Maddie, Maddie is crying to Abby. This is so much drama, I feel terrible for the both of them.  Maddie was Abby’s protege! Sue, I know you’re going to hate me for saying this, but I feel awful for Abby!  I love that woman right now! I love Maddie!  So many emotions!  So many cookies that I ate! Sue here. I think Abby was totally actor crying to manipulate Maddie. Just makes me hate her more.

What kind of accent does Mufasa have?  I don’t understand her.  Also, do these women go to specialty stores that specialize in the ugliest patterns in the world?  Melissa’s bangs look like she’s an extra from one of the “Back to the Future” movies OR DJ Tanner.

OOOOH the replacements are competing against us! Guys, how sick are you of the name Bella? So sorry if that’s your name, but COME ON! It’s EVERYWHERE right now.

So and So is doing her solo first, YGG you can do it!  Oh no, she forgot her dance!  She’s so freaking adorable it’s ok, love! Oh look, she has braces too!! The Ziegler girls have braces!  I love them both more than anything, even myself.

Oooh, her mom says, “She is not Maddie.” That’s so mean.

WTF is with Abby’s sea rope necklace? It’s like she’s a barge being tied to the pier. She loves nautical themed jewelry. I am one catty bitch in today’s recap I apologize! It was the cookies!

There’s some drama in the hallway with the Bellas and their ages. Christi has a good punchline about how Cathy’s dancers looked like they were 27 so it’s ok. I’m so tired. I just want to watch an episode of Catfish and pass out. I love that show. It’s like, “Marry me!” “We’ve been talking for two years but I never did a Google Image Search because I want to lie to myself!” “AGHHHHHH!!!! You’re a fat troll!!!!”

Both Kaeli and Bella do weird things with their hands and feet—the ALDC is way better trained in technique than these dummy Studio Bleu girls.

Chloe’s costume is gorgeous except for that weirdass head shawl. What is with that?

Bella does an ok job. Eh. GO CHLO! GO CHLO! I personally think Chloe is better than the other girls.  But we will see…

Abby just tore Melissa and her family a new one. WOAH. Hey Abby? Melissa’s personal life is none of your business and you’re being VERY unprofessional right now. You’re like evil incarnate. You’re like if Satan swallowed the Kool-Aid man and then started breathing fire.

Melissa? It IS ok for Maddie to cry. She’s a kid and she’s hurt. Let her feel her feelings.

The Studio Bleu group number is kind of a snoozer. Abby loves it though. PAIGE has braces, too!!!! The ALDC group number is beautiful. I love the stage picture. This is probs my favorite group number they’ve ever done, even though it’s vaguely racist. Vacist?

So and So gets third! Still good! Chlo gets second place? Lame. Studio Bleu Kaeli beats her. OMG, Arabian Nights gets FOURTH PLACE. OUTRAGE!!!! Studio Cordon Bleu gets first. This show is so staged. So staged… Anyway.

Abby tells Christi to stop making excuses for her kid because she’s in school. She’s fucking ridiculous. Christi calls her a fatty over and over again. It’s PRICELESSSSSSS. Poor Chlo gets so sad. And Christi gets another great punchline…. Ooh, Cathy Candy Apple’s is back next week!

This episode gets four out of five andy apples because it’s just amazing.

Posted at 11:18pm and tagged with: candy apples, dance moms, dance, abby lee miller, chloe, maddie ziegler,.

So we open up in LA, where Sue is :( I miss you SUZY!

Melissa almost loses her shit when Abby says 90210 bc she wants everyone to know what Abby’s going to say before she says it—must have heard about it in some pillow talk.  We know you two hook up.  Just be open about it already!

Now for the pyramid.  Paige is still on the bottom bc she broke her goddamn foot, then Nia, then Chloe?!  Crazy.  Simba is higher than Chloe.  This is weird … I’m sure Mufasa is going to lick an antelope’s bones clean in celebration later.



Then Brooke, then Mac.  WTF Mac is higher than Brooke?  Clearly the Ziegler sisters are on top because well let’s face it, Maddie is the shit.  But Mac in second place?  Melissa has been working it in the bedroom with Abby!  I wonder what they do?!

The group number is called “my last text” oh great, another Abby preachy number.

Abby tells the girls that they’re not friends, they’re competitors.  This is terrible.  I don’t want to know what these girls are going to turn out to be like.

Ok, she’s counting on Maddie’s acting chops to win the group number … I see it.

The moms are bitching about their daughters blah blah blah.  I just ate so many habenero almonds for breakfast wtf is wrong with me.  Christi’s face when Chloe is talking about texting and driving is ridiculous.  Christi is the master of the stank eye.

Kelly freaks when Abby doesn’t give Paige a dancing spot—I think it was brilliant bc PAIGE BROKE HER FOOT.  Just let her rest!

Why the hell is Christi giving Chloe dance advice?  She’s such a bitch!  I’d like to see you try to do some of those moves ya big bitch!

I’m sure Holly is taking Nia out for ice cream and being super supportive right now.  I love Nia and Holly.  Also, Holly looks wonderful in turquoise.

Mac is doing another stupid flippy dance to a jive song.  BUT WAIT.  It’s the same music from Vivi’s asbergers bee routine.  I’m sure that’s going to cause some dramz.

Cathy is coming to freak everyone out.  Why are they even nervous?  Cathy and her candy apple’s suck!  

Brooke is doing the Anne Frank routine.  Abby is full of DRAMZ.

Maddie is doing a lyrical routine about telling herself she’s back in the game.  Ugh.  More DRAMZ.



Wow.  Abby just told Kelly she needs to take Paige to the doctor and check if she’s retarded or something?!  What the hell.  Abby took it way too far.  Did she not realize that all the girls were in the room?  Did she not understand how Paige would feel?  Abby.  That was terrible.  I better hear an apology before this episode ends.  Sure Kelly is super dramatic, but Abby WTF?!

Oh great, now Kelly thinks that she’s going to make Paige into a model.  This photographer looks like a weirdo.  What kind of photoshoot is this for?  This is some weird kiddie porn stuff.  She’s making super suggestive faces and she’s like 11.  Also, that hair and fake eyelashes?  Weird.



Mufasa is growling at Kendall ala Christi and Chloe.  I’m so happy we haven’t seen Holly bitching at Nia yet.  

Kelly is back.  Ok, cool.

Abby asks the moms who gets the solo.  And puts Melissa on the spot to make a tie breaker.  And she chooses Nia!  Woooooooo!  Mufasa of course wants to chew her head off.  Poor Kendall is sitting there crying.  This is super sad.  Chloe ends up getting the solo.  Obviously.  Why is this episode so sad?!  Can some great stuff happen please!!!  I can’t bear to see these girls get tortured any longer!!!!

Oh no.  Is Chloe going to Chlo it again at Nationals?  I’m sure Mufasa would love that.  Why do they keep talking about Justice?  Is he seriously a threat?

The Candy Apple’s are HERE.  Finally!  And what do you know?  They’re at the same studio as Abby Lee AND she has another guest choreographer.  Woof.  Cathy has a hot dance mom!  That red head in the hot pink shirt is super hot!



Woah.  Cathy just comes in and disrupts their rehearsal.  What is her problem?  Also, what the hell is with Justice and Vivi falling in love in every dance?  Gross.  Ok turns out hot mom is Justice’s mom.  And she wants in on Abby Lee’s studio.  Oh crap!  

“There should be blood on that dance floor tomorrow, blood on that stage, red beef jerky blood.”

BEST QUOTE OF THE ENTIRE SEASON.

Woah I can’t get over how hot Justice’s mom is!  He better come to Abby Lee next season!  He needs to rid himself of Vivi.

We’re at Nationals!

Maddie’s solo is stunning.  It’s perfect.  It really is.
Justice is covered in blood for his solo?  Eh.  It was weird and stupid.

Brooke’s Anne Frank number kicks ass.  Woah.  I’m so proud of her!  And Kelly!

Mac’s doing the anti-vivi dance and she’s freaking out.  Abby is such a bitch for using this cutie as a pawn in her nasty game.  But she rocks it.  Because she’s a Ziegler.

Chloe rocks the solo too!  Abby Lee kicks ass!

Ugh the candy apple’s girls look like Cinderella sluts.  Ummm what the hell is that group dance?  I don’t understand anything that happened with it.

Holy crap.  That last text number gave me chills.  It was amazing.



MAC GETS SO MANY AWARDS!  YAY!  National title.

BROOKE DOES TOO!  National title.

MADDIE AND CHLOE DO TOO!  National titles.



Seriously, these girls are the shit.

And who wins the group dance?  Obviously.  Abby Lee.


This episode gets 5 out of 5 apples.  Amazing.
