Maddie was not upset about coming in second. Maddie was upset about Christie screaming at her mother. It was edited to make us think otherwise. Just look closely, the scenes don't fit together.
Also Christie? Is fast becoming one of my most disliked reality tv personalities. What a hypocrite. "Melissa blah blah blah..." well you know what? Melissa has her daughters in a studio where they are loved and treated with respect. You force your daughter to be in one where she is abused. Who is the better mother here? You are the one renewing that contract so you can be on the TEEVEE and making your daughter suffer. If you loved her and were the outstanding mother you pretend to be? You would have left the studio and the show. But I guess making money on the side with your meet-and-greets (she even has a website set up for this) is far more important to you than the welfare of your daughter.
What a piece of trash.
Also Holly, sitting there smirking at the mean girl couch, I've lost what little respect I had for you.
I'm not buying the so-called pact to not go. Please. I don't believe for a minute that Christie and Kelli who are willing to subject their daughters to any amount of abuse to be on TV wouldn't leap at the chance to further their "celebrity" status. It all sounded like the rantings and ravings of a bunch of jealous, bitter women. That is all I hear/see when any of these moms anymore.
Poor Chloe is just a shell of the girl she was when this started and I blame her mother. It is her mother who put her in that situation and it is her mother who keeps her there. I'm so tired of her crying "Abby this....Abby that....Melissa!!" Take her out of that studio, it's that simple really.
