Reality shows are scripted. This is the "reality" of reality shows. That they have writers. That things are often not spontaneous. I used to work in television, so it's really easy for me to spot the scripted things here. Like how Jill was clearly assigned the role of the instigator and Melissa is more than game to play up the whole "doormat" thing for a storyline. But what cannot be faked is genuine emotion, which this show has a lot of. But how do you get real emotion out of a scripted mess?

I'll explain.

The problem with playing yourself on TV is that eventually, even if you know most of the stuff is made up, you will become what you're pretending to be. You can play the game for a season or two, but it happens every time. Mostly because the public (and your producers) will pretty much demand this (or you will get fired for being boring). Even scripted moments of "fake" insults will eventually cut too close, go too far in the pursuit of drama and make the hurt and rage real. Because reality stars are not "actors" even though they are required to "act" in a role where they are playing themselves. So when the line is so blurred between "real" you and "TV" you, it's only natural that after a while you stop "playing" at being a jerk and you actually become one.

The "real" from this show comes from a place of pent up, historical rage between a bunch of noodle-nosed stage moms living through their kids (both for real and for pretend) and a megalomaniac dance teacher who has found the fame and wealth she always desired in a reality TV. I've watched every season, every episode and it's been fascinating to see Abby go from a strict, kind of ridiculous, but ultimately well-meaning dance teacher to complete psycho for the sake of the cameras.

I LOVE Dance Moms. If you ever took Dance as a child, love Dance & Drama, you will LOVE Dance Moms if you haven't seen it before. If you have, well then I know you will LOVE this season. More Drama, More Dancing! I love it so much! The girls are so sweet and cute, love their dances.. Brings me back to my dancing days :) Every season gets better and better, & I'm sure this season will be the same!

Well, I can finally say it and mean it--I am officially done watching this show. I have been watching since S.1 and some things have kind of irritated me, but not enough to stop watching. I always love watching the dances at the end of the episodes, so I would often sit through the bulls*** to see them dance. But now...I just watched the new episode of S.4 (5?, not sure) and was so disgusted I could not even finish the episode and know I will save the money not watching this show anymore. I grew up a competitive gymnast and had strict coaches, so Abby's yelling at the kids to do their best--fine. It doesn't bother me. The fact that she is playing psychological games with these girls, that could have a long-lasting impact (especially with poor Chloe, who I hope realizes she is a phenomenal dancer) makes me actually sick to my stomach. My hope is that in five years nobody will remember Abby Lee Miller. Really, really disgusting behavior from an adult to children (or teens, whatever).

I enjoyed this review and thought the next season seems hopeful. I wish they would do away with the Moms and just have the girls dance. I give those girls great credit for learning to dance under those circumstances I would have a nervous breakdown.

I LOVE the girls dancing on Dance Moms!! But the constant bickering between Abby and the Moms is starting to wear on my nerves. I was thrilled to see Kelly and Christi leave the show, thinking, silly me, that we would see more of the girls, and less friction between the Moms, but I'm definitely disappointed in Jess and Holly. I'm sure much of this is "made for tv drama" , with the producers encouraging the Moms and Abby, or scripting the Moms. I think a person holding a doctor's degree would behave better, particularly on TV. I have stopped my younger children from watching the show, not because Abby yells, but because of the way Holly, now Jess are behaving, their daughters are reflecting their Mother's attitudes, and behaviors. Having a strong personality can be beneficial, but Nia, who has always been the weak link with her dancing skills, is starting to reflect her mother's mouth. Education doesn't do that Mrs. holly, disrespect, bad attitude, and thinking a piece of paper has made you better than the other Moms. IMO, Jess and Jo-Jo need to leave, followed closely by Holly and Nia. I record the show for myself, and have found myself fast forwarding to the competition dances, then deleting the show. I have talked to people who love the girls, and are appalled at the Moms, and they, too, have either stopped watching the show, or record, and edit the show. At this rate it won't be many more seasons before this show is cancelled.

All of this said, the girls are beautiful, with Maddie, Kalani, Kendall, and Kennzie growing into more beautiful dancers with each year, they are all a joy to watch. But, the scripting for the girls is becoming more evident with each passing season. The DVD's should have a PG-13, or R rating for the mothers mouths.
