There was a heart-stopping moment on "Dance Moms" (Tues., 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime) when Maddie fell badly during a dance routine and had to be carried off the dance floor.
As a member of the production crew carried Maddie off the dance floor, her mom Melissa said, "my heart sunk to my stomach."
As Melissa took Maddie to be checked out, all the little trouper could do was worry about her performance, and she fretted that Abby Lee Miller would be mad at her.
Having assured the eight year-old that she wasn't mad, Abby then started to criticize her performance. "You started to dive," she said. "You started to dive and then you second-guessed yourself."
After checking with the medic to see that Maddie was okay, Abby joked that if the child had a bigger rear end then the fall wouldn't have hurt so much.
"Dance Moms" airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
