Oh, Lifetime, it’s awfully cute how you’re trying to be the new Bravo these days. You’ve already had an answer to the Real Housewives juggernaut franchise, Dance Moms, for two (gosh, is it really only two?) seasons now. Of course you’re going to have the show’s impeccably dressed producer host its first reunion!
There are only two things holding you back from the plane for which you’re currently reaching.
First, for all their bat shit drama, the Real Housewives (almost) always leave their kids out of it. I realize that you can’t really take the kids out of a show where the only bond between your stars is dance motherhood, but I can’t help but feel terrible for these girls. They are all clearly talented and seem to be friends despite their mothers’ constant bickering, fame whoring, and stage mothering.
It’s not a secret that Abby Lee Miller has terrible judgement when it comes to communicating with children and that the mothers are – understandably – upset when she accuses both mother and child of being stupid.
But this is where the mothers lose me week after week: is the city of Pittsburgh so hard up for dance teachers that there is no where else for them to go? No, it is not. According to Angie’s List, there are no less than one hundred seventy-six. 176. Only one of those involves Abby Lee Miller. It also happens to be the only one with reality show cameras around. I’m just saying.
Second – and, in the case of reunion shows, more importantly – Andy Cohen has a personality. Your producer/host does not.
I recently purchased the Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Rub Relief® Strips and must say that the easy-to-use dispenser is, in fact, not easy at all. The initial strip of foam worked well when placed in my shoes, but after cutting said strip, the rest of the foam was nearly impossible to get out of the dispenser. After turning the wheel for five minutes, the foam moved just enough that I could see it poking through but could not actually grab onto it and pull or cut or, you know, use it.
3M has been making a killing with those Scotch tape dispensers for years, and it doesn’t have an evil yellow spinny thing. Might I suggest a redesign?
Hello. My name is Kaitlin, and I am a book nerd. (This is the point where you say, “Hi, Kaitlin.”)
I started young in life, reading stories with my parents in planes, trains, and automobiles. Flipping through the pages of my mother’s Soap Opera Digest to keep up with my stories (oh, I had stories). Buying the books for my high school Honors American Literature class instead of using the ones provided by a suburban public school education so that I could make notes in the margin without feeling guilt and shame.
When my apartment burned over the summer, my second or third thought after “My teddy bear! My pictures!” was “My beautiful books!” Most of them are still de-smoking in my mother’s garage (thanks, Mom).
As someone then-working on a degree in publishing, I worried when the Kindle came on the scene. What did this mean for my preferred industry of choice? For my favorite independent book stores?
But then I scheduled a 13-hour flight to my motherland and knew that splitting five books between my purse and suitcase was overkill. I bought the Kindle. Like a junkie with his crack pipe, I was hooked.
