If you watch Dance Moms online, you know that for all intents and purposes, every episode may as well be an "Abby Lee Horror Story."
Only Dance Moms Season 6 Episode 10 has the distinction of formally being titled this, however, so you know s–t was gonna get real …
As Dance Moms Season 6 Episode 10 got underway, Abby announced that star Maddie Ziegler would tell the Lizzie Borden story.
Maddie, 13, remains her favorite pupil. By a wide margin.
Newcomer Brynn Rumfallo, 12, and Kendall Vertes, 13, are given the Black Dahlia and Natalie Wood solos for the routine, respectively.
Abby also opted for a particularly dark group routine, announcing that her dancers would perform “The Cult,” a contemporary piece.
Says Miller of the inspiration for this particular work:
“I think every parent has concerns about their child falling prey to a cult. And sometimes they’re even brainwashed to drink the Kool-Aid."
Holly Frazier’s response, which we’re all thinking?
“I have heard people reference [this] as a cult.”
Indeed. And there’s no mistaking the fact that the concept is a bit much for pre-teens and the girls are somewhat confused by the theme.
Mackenzie Ziegler, 11, thinks a cult is simply made up of “bad people,” while Holly and Jessalynn Siwa try their best to explain better.
While the girls could not settle on a clear definition of a cult before going on stage, it did not impact their performance. They took first!
“I love when our kids dance as a team together and I think that’s what’s important," Kendall’s mother, Jill Vertes, says.
"Maybe the ALDC being a cult isn’t a bad thing after all."
Wow, someone’s been drinking the Kool-Aid. Literally.
Brynn’s mother, Ashlee, presents the team with cups of it, saying, “The ALDC is a cult and they need their own Kool-Aid, so I got them some."
"I think they should drink their Kool-Aid every now and then.”
