On Dance Moms Season 7 Episode 1, after around 45 melodramatic episodes of Season 6, Abby Lee Miller delivered an epic announcement:
She is quitting the Lifetime show to pursue a career as an MMA fighter, where she hopes to duke it out with Kelly Hyland on pay per view.
Kidding. Her real announcement wasn't that good, but if you watch Dance Moms online, you know she never hesitates to shake things up ...
We picked up with Abby in her office, looking as bored as she always does. She furrowed one of her brows when she clocked the Junior Elite mothers in front of her.
"Look what the cat dragged in," she barks.
The moms looked pissed, but they really couldn't say anything. It's been two months since the last competition and they know their kids are struggling without Abby's connections.
When Abby asked if the kids were coming back, the moms seemed to think that was all down to Abby and whether she could split her time between the two teams evenly.
Abby requested that the girls came in because she had something she needed to discuss with everyone involved at the ALDC.
When everyone was together, Abby dropped the bomb that she was struggling to juggle working with two teams and that she would be cutting some people out in order to make a coherent team that could listen to her commands.
This was met with outrage from the moms, who quickly started wondering who Abby wanted rid of. Kerri decided that was the final straw and took her kid, quitting the ALDC.
Abby seemed unfazed by it and was probably somewhat happy at there being one less person to coach.
There was a clear divide between the mini mothers and the elite mothers. The mini mothers seemed to think all of this was brought on by the elites heading off to another dance studio earlier in the year.
When the gang took to Vegas, Abby said the mothers did not need to be in the room during the performances. They seemed to think this was to rattle the girls and make it easier for Abby to rattle them.
Abby then caused a huge argument by saying some of the kids would be jealous, but in true Abby fashion, she lied right after it and denied it.
Geez, doesn't she know how much trouble lies can get you in?
Kendall took 3rd place in the Teen Solos, with Brynn coming in 1st place!
The girls came in 1st place for the group solo. It was surprising, and pretty great. Abby was ecstatic.
However, when it came to crunch time, she could not get rid of anyone.
Instead, she said she felt like she was going to vomit and ran off.
Would she really get rid of some of her girls?
