Dance Moms recap Episode 30: Takin’ It To The Streets

dance-moms-episode-30-cathy

The season is winding down, Dance Moms nation! It’s time for nationals and things are about to get seriously crazy. But before we get into that, let’s take a moment to reflect on the hot messery which has been Season 4… Our faithful Abby brought in a “Select Team” of dancers whom she talented poached from around the country to challenge the Pitt Crew. For the first half of the season, we waited for them, we argued about them and mostly we hated them. When they beat the girls in competition we were worried they might be here to stay. … Continue reading

Dating Naked: the Lost Episode Recap

Dating Naked: the Lost Episode

Of course, this episode isn’t really lost. This is the show’s pilot, something that was created by the producers to serve as a sales vehicle to VH1. I have seen images of the pilot since this summer when VH1 first contacted me about covering the show (I wrote an article for July’s Channel Guide Magazine, so I interviewed Amy Paffrath in May.) and I’ve been wondering if and when we’re going to meet the woman with the dark, curly hair and wondering if any of the couples clicked. I also have been wondering what changed between the pilot and the … Continue reading

Dance Moms recap episode 29: Chloe’s Penultimate Peril

Dance Moms recap episode 29: Chloe’s Penultimate Peril

It’s that time of year again, Dance Moms Nation. The ALDC dance concert is on and it’s going to be cutthroat this year! The Pitt Crew plus Sarah (of CWAY CWAY fame) and Kamryn from the Select Team are all lined up for pyramid, which is predictable, as always. Chloe hits bottom (this time for missing a day of rehearsal to get an MRI on her foot), even though Kendall was the one who couldn’t win a competition even with Maddie choreography. Nia finally makes it to the top after her Maya Angelou-inspired win and all the girls give her … Continue reading

Vh1’s Dating Naked Wedding: Recap

Dating Naked Wedding

I totally cry at weddings. Good weddings, bad weddings, trashy weddings, so I’m pretty sure I’m going to cry during tonight’s  Wedding.  But I guess it’s not really a wedding, because (obviously) Ashley and Alika wanted their families there for the real deal (and to wear clothes) so this is a naked love ceremony. I never thought it would be Ashley and Alika getting married, but to hear Ashley describe meeting her soul mate, it is incredibly sweet and you realize how obviously perfect they are for each other. And to see flash backs to their first meeting is great. … Continue reading

dance-moms-goodbye-maya

Are you still on the edge of your seat after last week’s dramatic episode ender, Dance Moms Nation? If you’re looking for any sort of resolution, you’re not going to find it here, but you will find increasing drama at every turn. The girls fail to line up for pyramid on time because the moms have decided to confront Abby about her behavior for the billionth time this season. To recall last week, the moms (spearheaded by Holly) decided to obviously count how many times Abby criticized each individual child on a whiteboard. It went about as well as you’d … Continue reading

Dating Naked Episode 9 Recap: Sean and Juliet

Dating Naked Episode 9 Recap: Sean and Juliet

Tonight, it’s Dating Naked episode 9 and two more hopefuls search for love by going on a series of naked dates. Let’s hope this week’s guy is a better judge of character than last week’s Mike, who claimed he was over dating party girls and ends up with, a stripper-y party girl. (And I might add for helium-voiced Stephanie, if you’re going to appear on TV wearing baby pink lipstick, perhaps  check out Crest WhiteStrips. Pink is a tricky color to wear if your teeth are yellow.) But let’s worry about this week, because last week is old news. Juliet … Continue reading
