“I only wear this because she tried to dip me in queso cheese dip last weekend.”
We finally see Andrea’s house, as Bonnie and Alana come over so that Alana can get some tumbling pointers from Kylie. Andrea feels like she’s doing the right thing for CTR by letting Alana practice with her daughter. Her daughter’s fairly nice to Alana and gives her some good tips. Alana seems deathly shy. Maybe it’s the cameras. It can’t possibly be the result of having a pushy pageant director for a mom. Andrea and Bonnie sit on her back porch and talk about Andrea’s trip to Chicago with Alisha. Bonnie wants to know if Ann was jealous and Andrea says she was. Andrea interviews but it’s torture hanging out with Bonnie. Bonnie thinks that it is just a matter of time before Andrea comes over and joins Team Bonnie. But she’s not sure if Team Bonnie has room for her. (Slow down, Bonnie. Don’t push it.) Andrea interviews that she can’t stand being around Bonnie and hearing the sound of her voice. Bonnie thinks that as long as Alana has a mentor like Kylie, she will soon be on Youth Silver. Don’t hold your breath Bonnie. Andrea says it’s good to see Alana learning the tricks, because that means Bonnie will be leaving soon. What a bitch. Rake your yard. Get a new trampoline. And shut your pie hole. You’re not that great.
Can’t. Believe. I’m. Sitting. With. Madam. President.
They’re called Crest WhiteStrips. You can probably find a coupon in the local circular.
We are two days away from competition, and Youth Silver is about start practice. Bonnie and Alana walk up and ask Alisha to watch Alana’s back handspring. (Oh crap, this isn’t going to end will.) Alisha interviews that Bonnie has no idea that she watches Alana practice every week and is well aware of how she is doing. Alana gets up on the little wedge to try to do back handspring, but she chickens out about 10 times. The kid is so nervous. And her mom is just standing there screaming at her to “throw it, just throw it, throw it, and just throw your back handspring”. (Holy over zealous cow, Bonnie; you gotta loosen up. Some kids aren’t made to do back handsprings. Some kids are just made to do forward rolls.) Eventually, after threatening her and bribing her with a trip to Columbus, Alana manages to do a fairly shady back handspring. I think you’re supposed to use more arms and less head when you flip over. I’m no expert, just sayin’. Bonnie said it was the best moment EVER. Really? I’m sorry.
“Come on, Sweetie. Throw it. Just hurl your entire body backwards. Easy Peasy.”
