Have you been watching Dance Moms on Lifetime? Have you? If you have, I'm sure you understand my disbelief -- not that you're watching it, but that the show and the people on it are actually real.
Sometimes Dance Moms -- which follows demanding dance coach Abby Lee Miller, her tiny, flexible proteges and their preening, paranoid Midwestern mothers as they travel the country, putting on group and individual competitive dance numbers, each somehow more ridiculous than the last -- feels like Christopher Guest and Tim & Eric got collectively inspired by screaming and spandex and decided to make a show about it. But no. Dance Moms is not a mockumentary, nor is it a nightmare. It's real. And a real treat I'm going to miss after the season finale airs this Wednesday. But at least we know it's coming back.
Anyone who watches Dance Moms knows that Abby Lee is a busy woman, and she hates anything that wastes her time. But we were able to get three questions in with Ms. Abby Lee as we anxiously await the finale, "There's Only One Star," of which you can also watch a sneek peek below.
