Previously on Dance Moms: Kelly left and the moms insisted she would NOT come crawling back; Jabby held auditions to replace Brooke and Paige; new girl Ally and her mom Shelly joined the team.
For the second week in a row, we open in the parking lot.
Next week we hold out for a rest stop
The moms greet one another and note that Shelly and Ally are not there. Christi surmises that they scared them away. Oh Christi, you’re not that scary. Shrill says maybe Ally is having a private, while Christi suggests maybe Shelly is cleaning Jabby’s bathroom. Nah, Shrill already took care of that.
Christi says they are a team and the team should include Kelly, not Shelly. Well, Shelly rhymes with Kelly, doesn’t that count for anything? She mumbles something about Kelly having left for a reason and that they should try to convince her to come back. Holly says without Kelly, there is a void and they need to take a stand. Yeah. Because if you don’t fight for your friend’s right to storm off in anger every week and then return the next day like nothing happened, nobody will.
Jabby and Gia are working at the front desk when the moms walk in and go straight into the ladies’ room.
Peep or poop?
Jabby agrees that they are acting suspiciously, even for them. We hear the moms through the bathroom door agree to give Jabby the silent treatment. I don’t understand why they had to have this particular summit in the bathroom, but whatever.
When they come out, Jabby tries to make small talk, but the moms ignore her.
I guess it’s later and Jabby is looking all over for the girls so she can do the pyramid. Nobody is around. Jabby says if the moms are trying to piss her off, they’ve accomplished their mission. Jabby calls Melissa’s cell phone to see what the hell is going on and says that if they are doing this because of Kelly, they are nuts. She says Melissa is especially nuts because Maddie and Mackenzie need her and need to dance.
Jabby says the moms are trying to make a point, but the show must go on. There is a competition this weekend in Fort Wayne, Indiana and she will just work with the girls who are here. Hi Ally!
You win the prize for being the only person here
Upstairs, Shelly’s sitting there forlorn. She goes downstairs to see what’s happening. Jabby says she doesn’t know what the moms’ beef is, but they’re crazy and they can go scratch. Jabby asks Ally if the moms or kids told her anything, but they didn’t. Jabby rants that just because Kelly doesn’t want to come back, that shouldn’t affect her girls’ ability to come to class. If Brooke really wanted to dance, she could make her dad drive her or a neighbor. Because who wouldn’t relish the opportunity to ferry their neighbor’s kid around to dance class.
