For some reason, the "Dance Moms" (Tue., 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime) continue to try and reason with Abby Lee Miller. Week after week she makes it pretty clear that she has no interest in their opinions, or even their lives outside of the Abby Lee Dance Academy. In her world, if they can't commit 100% or more to the dance "careers" of their children, then they're basically wasting her time.
So she was completely beside herself when Kelly Hyland told her that her daughter Brooke wasn't going to make it to practice this weekend. Instead, there's something at the school that she wanted to do instead.
"This is where it's bad parenting, Kelly," said Miller. "She should have opened her mouth and said, 'Abby, let somebody else be at the top of the pyramid this week.' That is a mature 13-year old." This, Miller decided, was akin to stabbing everyone in the back, including her.
When some of the other mothers tried to stand up for Kelly and Brooke's decision, Abby began to lay into them. "Well I think you're an a*****e!" she said to one. Later, she summed up the philosophy that makes it foolish for these moms to even try to reason with her.
"In this studio? It's my way or the highway!"
Catch Abby's next blow-up as "Dance Moms" continues Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
