    I did too. None of it rang true to me.

Holly felt, rightly so, that Nia was kind of set-up to be the pawn of Cathy against Abby which was so wrong. She wasn't upset with Abby & Abby was proud of Nia.
    Why would the previews for next week's episode show footage from two weeks previous? I'm confused. In the previews I saw, Holly asks Abby to put Nia in the trio and it devolves from there.

    I don't know why Melissa doesn't want them to know about her being engaged. According to the other mothers, she's not shy about sharing the most personal details of her life - sex, bodily functions, etc. It's odd that, all of a sudden, she wants to be a private person. Yes, it was obviously an excuse for Christi and Kelly to drink champagne, but I think their hearts were in the right place. It was obvious that Holly was happy to be the one to corral the girls and get them out of the room. If Nia wasn't in dance with the girls, I don't think Holly would want anything to do with those other mothers.

    I sort of find it hard to fathom that there is such a demand for beef jerky, that there are actual outlets dedicated to them.


    I swear to you that I once drove past a store in a fairly isolated area that indicated it was an outlet store. And it was. It sold outlets. That's right--an entire store dedicated to outlets. I almost stopped to take a picture of their sign.

    Since I can't get Lifetime on my TV, I watch the show on my computer. Each weeks episode is available beginning the following Saturday morning. Until this week. They are showing episode 8 as the current one (that was the episode where Jill signs her daughter up at Candy Apple) And they are showing previews for episode 10. It's as if episode 9 doesn't exist!

    I was answering a question from Mom2. I believe she is a week behind. I am with you with thinking that alcohol & strippers were just so wrong to have at a childrens dance competition. melissa doesn't like to drink....really??? i guess she must have a twin sister because she was partying pretty good when the gilrs were in Vegas & LA last year(when she was there). pssst....(wonders if melissa might be pregnant. She seems alfully tired& having to pee all of a sudden)

    Weird, IMHO.
    Believe it or not, my brother-in-law and l stumbled upon one in Maryville/Alcoa, Tenn. while Christmas shopping a few years ago. We couldn't believe it so of course we had to go in. We actually ended up buying all sorts of exotic jerky (buffalo, alligator, elk, etc.) for stocking stuffers! As far as I know, it's still open.

    Re: Dance Moms on Lifetime

    I was curious about the jerky store and did an internet search. If it's legit (and it looks to be), Tommy's Jerky and Smokie Outlet has a Facebook page. Someone asks about the commercial shot on Dance Moms, and he answered that, "It's not really a commercial you'll see on TV. That was all for the show only." Then someone asks if the show is scripted, and he answers, "Yes maam." He then tells someone else that he's glad they don't believe everything they see on TV. I'm not sure if Facebook links are allowed, but if you Google Tommy's Jerky and Smokie Outlet Canton Oh, you'll see the link.

    Here's a link to a news story about the store: Jerky store now open for business - Canton, OH - CantonRep.com

    I absolutely loved how Maddie and Chloe were right there for Nia on the sidelines, ran to hug her when she bolted from the stage, and were by her side the whole time to make sure she was okay. Oh, and Mackenzie saying she could have been lost at sea...but for a totally different reason

    Mackenzie was also crying in sympathy when Nia ran off the stage. What's sweetly surprising about this whole show is that, despite Abbie and most of their mothers, the girls all seem to like each other and appear to be relatively level-headed.

    I love how strong Nia was last night. She fell apart, pulled herself together, and even after that idiot Abbie told her that she'd have to doubly good this time, she didn't cave to the pressure and did well enough to come in third. And even then, Abbie didn't praise her for being gutsy, which she should have. Thank heavens Holly is there to do that for her daughter.

    I thought it was interesting that Chloe's mom referred to Holly as the one who holds the rest of them together. Even they recognize she's the most well grounded of them all (and the only one who's not living through her daughter, if you ask me). I also agree with whichever mother it was who said Abbie cannot take responsibility for her own mistakes when Abbie blamed the girls' performance for not placing with that stupid showgirls routine. That may not have been their best performance ever, but it was clear the judges also objected to the whole notion of the routine, and surely Abbie got the notes on that.

    I also can't stand it when Abbie goes on about how she's preparing these girls to be professionals. Seriously, how many of them are really going to be professional dancers? Even if that's what they want, it's a very difficult field in which to make a career, and the only three we've ever heard make any statements indicating they might even like to do it professionally are Maddie, Chloe, and Brooke.
