'Dance Moms': Return Of The Candy Apple Girls (VIDEO)

First Posted: 01/18/12 07:16 AM ET Updated: 01/18/12 12:28 PM ET

Last night on "Dance Moms" (Tue., 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime) there was a showdown in Ohio between Abby Lee Miller and her nemesis, Cathy Nesbitt.

Abby's dancers were going head-to-head against Cathy's Candy Apple Girls in a contest, and things turned really ugly between the so-called adults.

With accusations of cheating, over-age girls competing and industrial espionage conducted with the aid of cocktails, Cathy and Abby faced off in front of the moms.

Cue some awesome apple-related insults -- "that woman [is] rotten to the core!" -- and put-downs.

Accused of deliberately aping the Candy Apples' color scheme for her dancer's costumes, Abby couldn't remember exactly when she started dressing her girls in red and black, but thought it was some time in the 1980s. Cathy sweetly jabbed a finger in her direction and said "better give me a birth certificate on that!" Me-ow.

When Abby accused Cathy of dissing her behind her back, Chloe's mom Christi waded into the fray and the insults really started to fly.

Cathy (a.k.a. "Granny") took on Christi ("The Nose") in a no-holds barred slanging match in front of the other moms and some of the kids.

After a heated debate over the merits of Christi's dress, "The Nose" finally dismissed her opponent with the somewhat confusing order to "Go back to Junior High, Grandma!"

Follow the antics of Abby and the girls on "Dance Moms" every Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
