Dance Moms Set To Return
By Paul Anthony
Can you believe Dance Moms is coming back to Lifetime! Okay Okay I know what you are thinking, you want to tell me to calm down. We can’t deny the show became a big hit in the first seven years to the point I am talking about it and I am not a fan of the Lifetime channel but when a show reaches the top the only thing it can do is go down and that is exactly what happen.
When a show gets to the top, the stars get to the top as well and that becomes a problem because the stars in this case were the dancers on the team that the show is based around. They have other talents and decided to explore that and that was step one of the down fall. The show made stars out of Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler and the Sparky JOJO not to mention NiA as well. The show also belongs to the mothers of the dancers hence the title of the show is Dance Moms which these moms used their children talent to recapture their youth since they do nothing else but “manage their children”. We love to hate them to say the very least. But there is also another star of the show and that is Abby Lee Miller.
In season 7 Abby started to become distance and seemed frustrated even beyond the normal. Then we learn she was going to prison for bankruptcy fraud and it only got worse from there. After prison she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphona then had emergency back Surgey and just last June she has Spinal Surgey and had to learn how to walk again.
It seemed like the show was over and then we got a shocker and that shocker was that after all this Abby lee Miller annouced that she would start filming season 8 at the end of january and the season will start on june 4th!
We know that there will be 8 new dancers which means 8 new moms which also means the same old drama but Abby lee also said she wants to get back to basics which I guess it means she wants the show to focus on the dancing and not the drama. However that may hurt the ratings which I don’t think Lifetime wants to see happen. However we are still a few months away so if your fan of the show then I bet you can’t wait to see what happens in this new season!
