It’s a new year and a new season of Lifetime’s Dance Moms!
“I actually don’t watch the show,” Melissa tells OKMagazine.com exclusively. “Maddie and Mackenzie watched it and they gave me the play-by-play. I don’t like to see the fighting. I’m not that kind of a person so it’s really hard for me to deal with that. I don’t like yelling and screaming and certainly don’t like people talking about my children. That bothers me. It’s really hard to hear.”
Besides, she says, “I was there, so I really don’t need to watch it. I was Tweeting during the premiere though.”
Abby Lee has long threatened that everyone on her competitive dance team is replaceable, but this season she seems determined to shake things up. “Abby has all these open call auditions which none of us like – none of us – the kids included, because she kind of holds it over the kids heads. We know that our kids are not the best in the whole world. There’s always someone better. Our biggest fear is that Abby’s going to find someone and say, ‘I don’t need any of these kids. Let’s get a brand new team.’”
As the season progresses, there may be new names added to the roster at the Abby Lee Dance Company. Melissa warns, “There’s lots of surprises this year.”
