Pittsburgh's own reality show!

 

top image Lifetime.com

 

If you like shows like Toddlers and Tiaras then this is a new show JUST for you!  Dance Moms follows Abby Lee Dance Company and a group of moms and their daughters who are set to be the next STARS!  The best part of the show is that Abby Lee Dance Company is based RIGHT HERE in Pittsburgh, PA!!!  Just a short jaunt from our area in Penn Hills! 

 

Having a daughter who has danced since the age of 3 I was super curious to check out this show!  My daughter is super competitive but doesn’t do competitive dance.  Being a rising soccer mom in the making I thought I’ve seen it all … really this show can’t be that bad.  But true to it’s form…it is reality and wow it gave me a chance to set aside my own life’s drama and watch some one else’s for PURE entertainment.

 

The show premieres TONIGHT, July 13 at 10p.m. on Lifetime. I got a chance to get a sneak preview of the first show and watching Abby Lee in action made me sit back and evaluate (and pat myself on the back)my own parenting skills!  The owner is full of herself at how good she is and how she will infact make these children into pure stars IF they follow her.  It’s a winning is EVERYTHING attitude!  My personal favorite line from the entire show was when Abby said…”when a parent opens their mouth they are ruining their child”.  And the fact that these parents pay $16,000/year for this stardom just amazed me!

But please realize that Abby isn’t the only source of conflict in the show…the moms are ruthless…putting dance above all else in their and their child’s life sometimes even including school!  The girls are often seen crying and despite the fact that the mom’s appear to disagree with Abby’s way of handling things they press on and continue to pressure their children into many adult situations.  At one point in the first episode the police were called to the studio for a fight between Abby and a mom…fortunately no weapons were involved just lots of yelling.

So sit back, grab a drink and let Dance Moms entertain you while assuring that you that you are doing a great job raising your kids!!

Dance Moms premieres on Lifetime on July 13. Click here to see a preview!  Comment below to tell me what you thought of the show!
