Yes, I admit it, I watch all episodes of dance moms.
It's ridiculous how much I love reality TV.
I cannot lie, I love Abby Lee...
Even more after seeing her on the Rosie show
yes..... I watch Rosie too now that it is one on one.
Like all reality TV, they edit until only the worse parts
are shown. Hearing and seeing Abby Lee's side
on Rosie gave her a chance to explain herself.
She speaks of how much she truly loves children
that she never had her own family because
these children are all her own.
She speaks of all the students who are adults now,
employable adults. She speaks of how the show
does not show the love and hugs she gives to the girls.
How sometimes the children say they would rather
be with her in her studio than home with the chaos
of their home lives.
I believe her. I think she is a business woman
and although her antics on the show almost embark
on child abuse I think there is another side that the show
does not show. As she says, I don't train my dancers
to just win and be the best, I train that dance group
to be employable dancers.
There are many other children who are not featured
on the show who go for entertainment, excercise.
That is not this special dance group that is
portrayed on her show. These young girls are the best
and have been chosen for that, they are not just your
average dancers, she brags about them saying
they are fabulous, wonderful dancers.
Many of my great nieces dance and many are very, very good.
But there is our Lucy who is phenomenal.
LU is a perfectionist with all her work and especially
loves dancing. I think if she wanted she could be a professional
dancer, she could be an "employable" dancer.
I wonder what would happen to a dancer like Lucy
in Abby Lee dance studio.
I don't think her parents would ever allow it
but I tell you this,
Our LuLu would give Abby Lee a run for her money.
The tears would be turned...
