Downstairs, Jabby is telling Kendall that she’s “lucky” to rehearse with “these people” who win week after week. Jabby says that Kendall’s bad habits have gotten worse since her excursion into the Crazee World of Candy Apple’s and that Jabby has to correct those bad habits. Then Jabby says that even though she is in the group number and a duet, Kendall is under NO CIRCUMSTANCES a member of the team. She is still a guest and had better not forget it.
Don’t get cocky, kid.
Now, regarding Maddie’s special part, Jabby extols how amazing Maddie’s facial expressions are and how she will totally sell the dance. I think she means facial expression – singular – because I’ve yet to see her make a face other than the goofy one on her face every week.
So in this group number, the other four girls are doing one thing and Maddie is doing something else. The four girls are afraid of her for being different (and better) so they “break her down” with dance and make her become like them. Or something. It’s all very complicated. Somebody should analyze Jabby’s psyche based on the dance themes she comes up with.
I know you probably won’t believe this, but Christi is upstairs complaining. She is mad that Jabby picked Maddie to do the “special” part and she thinks that Jabby thinks that the rest of the girls are “a mediocre cult and if they see somebody better, they are going to drag her down to their level.” Christi continues that the whole thing was “offensive” and it parallels the situation last week where Jabby singled out Maddie in front of the group because she is the best ever or whatever. Christi deems the whole situation “bullshit.”
Holly pipes up to say that Jabby is always talking about Nia being “different” and this would be a perfect opportunity to capitalize on Nia’s “differences.” Again, if Jabby did single Nia out for being “different,” we’d be hearing about that, am I right? You can’t win with these bitches.
Kelly’s been uncharacteristically quiet, so she jumps in to say that it’s almost like Jabby thinks Maddie is above the rest of girls and that they are bringing her down.
I’m tired of complaining about choreography, so I’ll get aboard the Maddie train.
Melissa interviews that the moms are reading wayyyyy to much into this and they are always looking for something to argue about. Did you just wake up, Melissa?
Christi says to Melissa that it’s too bad that she can’t celebrate other people, but gets mad when the other moms don’t celebrate Maddie. Melissa says that “everyone celebrates everyone.” (Me, I celebrate red wine.) Christi says “That’s why you talk about my daughter.”
We get a flashback to Melissa tattling to Jabby about Christi and Chloe’s movie date a few weeks ago. Then Christi’s like, “What’s the matter, Melissa? No comment. No deflection?” Melissa yells, “You talk about my daughter all the time.” Christi screams that she only talks about how Jabby FAVORS Maddie, not about Maddie per se.
