I feel bad for Allison. I can imagine how torn she is between her dancing and her guy. But, I was shocked when I learned he had never bothered to go to Utah to see her dance. That just seems WRONG to me. Even when she was begging him to come, he seemed disinterested. I suspect he is in love with the idea of a very slender wife who will warm his bed, cook his meals, raise his kids and look good on his arm at social events.
As to Christiana not speaking to Chris at the studio...I suspect she want's their conversations to be private, not shared on national TV. Can't say I blame her for that!
