Mayra interviews that no one blames Hannah for being fat, it’s her mom who pushes food on her. Actually, I can see that, because Hannah does seem to work really hard. And, as noted by commenters, she’s really not fat, just not a beanpole. For that matter, neither is Jessi.
Bob takes her grievances to Angel, saying she can’t go back in there with those mean, spiteful people. Mayra comes in to say that she’s the one who sees Hannah’s weigh-ins and that Hannah’s not losing pounds. Bob calls her a liar. Mayra says that Hannah works hard and Bob just gives her pizza and god only knows what else at home. Bob says “this woman” is no longer allowed to weigh Hannah, and if that means they have to leave the studio, they will leave the studio.
Angel interviews that the truth is, Bob is the one buying groceries. He says that Hannah wants salad, but Bob is scared that salad is not enough. Bob interviews that she wants Hannah to look up to her, but not become her.
Kimmy and Jessi rehearse the duet with Mayra because VictAng are out in the parking lot working with the older kids who also have a competition this weekend. Ani is anxious and says the boys need to get their butts in there. Susan frets that that the kids aren’t getting enough help from their coaches.
A graphic tells us it’s 7:15 PM. I guess it’s to mark the moment that Bob had her epiphany? She notes that the kids and VictAng are “ganging up” on the moms and they need to realize they are all in this together. She says they need to come together in the best interest of their children. Whoa, stop the crazy talk. Putting your child’s interests ahead of your own famewhoring? I don’t understand.
Ani’s happy because all she ever wanted was for everyone to get along. Bitchette says let’s “screw with them” and do a group hug. That’s Bitchette for you – always wanting to “screw” with someone. Honestly, though, this whole Rebecca of Sunnybrook crap seems a little out of context. Ten minutes ago half of them were screaming at each other while the other half were crying. WTF?
Anyhoo, they do that hands-in-the-middle cheer, prompting VictAng to ask if the moms have been drinking. (We’re not in Pittsburgh, so I doubt it.)
Dance Moms gone wild
Bob says the moms have a “love-hate” relationship but at the end of the day they’re a team. Huh? You were just calling them “mean and spiteful” not five minutes ago. Did y’all take ecstasy or something? Ah, I bet that’s it. Anyway, one of them starts singing “when you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.”
Victor gets all pissy and says this behavior is unacceptable and he can’t focus. He says the moms are being disrespectful and mocking him. He yells at them all to leave and not come back. He snits that he’s going to work with OTHER kids whose parents hate each other the way they’re supposed to.
They disperse, and Lucas lies on the couch, upset that Victor stopped the rehearsal. Lucas tells Bitchette that the moms distract him and it affects his dancing. He says first they are laughing, then they are screaming at each other, then crying. He can’t focus. Instead of apologizing, Bitchette’s like, “well, I don’t think you should have been third on the list.” Lucas is like “who cares about the list! I don’t care if I’m on the bottom every day because I know I’m a good dancer.” He says he can be last and still have fun because he loves to dance. Lucas, Lucas, Lucas. Stop with the positive attitude. Has your mother taught you NOTHING, you ungrateful wretch?
It’s the next day (I guess) and the kids are ready to rehearse the group number. But VictAng are nowhere to be found. The moms are still in a good mood, and Abby makes the obvious joke about the dance theme being about abandonment and VictAng actually abandoning them. But I’m glad the ladies are still trying to keep it light. All of a sudden, Mayra lumbers into the studio to teach the kids ballet. I didn’t even know they taught ballet at Stars. Both the moms and kids are laughing hysterically at the prospect.
Fat people teaching ballet are funny, amirite?
