With Jill still on what might be considered probationary status with the other "Dance Moms" (Tue., 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime), she certainly ruffled some feathers this week with her gesture to Abby and Gianna. She had a masseuse brought in with two tables set up to treat the instructors to a personal massage.
"Thank you so much," Abby said sincerely. "No one has ever done anything like this my whole entire life." If only she knew what Jill's apparent motives were, which appeared to run much darker than just wanting to be kind. She suggested that it was her daughter Kendall's idea, and positively gleamed when Abby told Gianna to "put that Kendall right in the front."
Out in the waiting room, the other moms started to get a hint as to what was going on, and Christi finally got up to take a peek. "You are buying Abby and Gianna right now," she said, escalating the argument that was already breaking out.
But Jill had no shame about her tactics. "You guys are okay with being second or last, that's your choice," she said matter-of-factly. At the mention of Christi's daughter Chloe being "second," Christi completely lost it, screaming in Jill's face, "You better not say that again!" through clenched teeth. Sometimes you've got to play dirty to get ahead.
