Another show chock full of great moms and even greater daughters. And by great, I mean tragic and by greater, I mean holy sht these girls need to make some life changes.
Sometimes it’s not easy to dislike everyone equally. Other times it is.
This week the Youth Tan Silver Team is preparing to go to Chicago for a tournament. Alisha has decided to make the stunts a little harder so that they have a better chance of scoring high. Alisha says their goal is to get a bid to go to Nationals. Cassadee is having knee problems and Alisha thinks they need to step it up some more. More difficult stunts. More difficult pyramids. And less “bad parts” of the dance. I’m not sure what she meant by bad parts, but I’ll assume it was pole-related.
I loved the bad parts of the dance.
Yeah, so did I.
Alisha is frustrated from the beginning of the episode. She worries that the little kids can’t learn the choreography as fast as the older kids. Her daughter, Chambree, says that she can’t remember the routine. Andrea tells Ann that she doesn’t want to go to Chicago because the front group can’t stay up. Alisha tells the kids that they want to be the Grand Champs. (I guess that’s the Ultimate Grand Supreme of cheerleading.)
But mommee, it’s business in the front, party in the back.
”Cambree is rockin’ that mullet.”
Ann is holding a make-up how-to class for some of the moms. This year, instead of making black wings on the kids’ eyes, they are going for the subtle whore and orange shimmer look. It is classic. Bonnie is there with Alana, Andrea is with Kylie, and there’s a handful of other randoms. Bonnie interviews that she doesn’t know why Ann teaches the class because she does really bad hair and make-up. We get to join Andrea and Kylie working together and I get my second glimpse of Kylie’s shtty attitude. She whines and gripes like a 3 year old. Suck it up! It’s make-up. You’ll live. Andrea worries about what will happen with Kylie’s a teenager. (I recap for Teen Mom 2, so maybe I’ll be seeing Kylie there.) Michelle missed the class because she had to work and didn’t want to change her schedule around. There’s no I in Team, Michelle.
But there is an Eye I’d like to poke out.
I am so much better at this than Ann.
Mommy, I look trantastic.
