With all the drama surrounding Abby Lee Miller, Maddie Ziegler, Kendall Vertes and the rest of the Dance Moms cast, fans of the Lifetime reality series cannot help but wonder if some part of it, if not all, is just made up for the sake of the ratings. In the latest sneak peek clip for season 6, it seems like the moms are starting to feel fed up of the ALDC coach’s ways.
While Abby and the rest of the Dance Moms cast may not always see each other eye-to-eye, moms Nia Frazier, Melissa Gisoni, Jill Vertes, Kira Girard, and Jessalyn Siwa have become more and more outspoken about how the coach treats their daughters.
In a new promo for Dance Moms season 6, Abby Lee Miller was seen giving the ALDC dancers a pep talk before a competition. While the coach remained strict with the dancers, she also encouraged them to give it their best shot.
“You’re only as good as good as your last performance. You dance a hundred percent. You give it your all.”
Things, however, started to go downhill from there on. A mom pointed out that because of intense pressure, the team is slowly losing and falling apart. To make matters worse, the moms are starting to turn against each other.
“You’re trying to make sh*t up to cause drama. So walk the f**k that way,” a frustrated Kira Girard said, seemingly directed at another mom.
Surprised by her Dance Moms season 6 co-star behavior, Holly Frazier started to wonder if the show has changed them for the worse.
“What have we become? We’re role models. We’re moms.”
During what seemed to be another heated confrontation between the moms, Abby Lee Miller jumped in and told them that the moms do not rule the dance studio.
“This team is really too stressful,” Maddie Ziegler said.
In the clip, the moms also asked point black if Ziegler is leaving ALDC. A teary eyed Melissa Gisoni confirmed that they will no longer be part of Dance Moms after season 6.
“I’m sorry. We had such a great ride together. Love you guys.”
Maddie Ziegler’s mom received quite a backlash on social media after she said in the last episode that Dance Moms only got popular because of “her and her kids.” Fans of the reality series held that Gisoni was “too full of herself” to think that way. They held that Chloe Lukasiak, Kendall Vertes, Nia Frazier, among others, made Dance Moms what it is today.
A few pointed out that, if anything, it was Sia who opened opportunities for Maddie and Dance Moms.
On the other hand, some were also relieved to see Maddie Ziegler go. Without her on Dance Moms, they held that the other girls would be given more opportunities to shine.
In the last episode of Dance Moms season 6, Jill Vertes confronted Miller for focusing too much on her favorite students. She pointed out that the ALDC coach should give each dancer a chance so they can “feel good about themselves.”
Both Kendall and Jill felt that Abby was setting them up for failure. They believed that Miller wanted to humiliate the girls in that performance.
Upset that Jill was trying to make her look bad, Miller retaliated and claimed that Kendall’s mom has surely lost her mind. She said that the mother and daughter should move on and “get over it.”
“I wasn’t put on this earth to make your kid feel good. I was put on this earth to teach her how to dance. Period.”
