Melissa interviews that it’s a good thing they are going to IN10SITY this week because of all the “INTENSE” feelings going around. (Also because nobody else will have them.)
At the competition, Melissa asks Kelly if she went out with Christi the night before. Kelly says no, they’re still not talking. Melissa says she doesn’t think Kelly did anything wrong. Of course, a few scenes ago, she was saying the same thing to Christi so either she really doesn’t care or she is back to being Melissa the Ass-kissa.
Holly is concerned because Christi is being quieter than usual. Christi says maybe she’s turned over a new leaf.
Kelly complains about Paige and Nia not getting same amount of rehearsal time as Maddie (complaint # 438 in the handbook) and that devolves into the usual yelling and threats to pull the duet again. But Jabby must be in a good mood this week because she agrees to let them go on anyway.
Christi interviews that there is a huge elephant in the room and for once it isn’t Jabby. Heh. Kelly says to Christi that she will talk to her after Paige and Brooke dance. Christi’s just like “whatev, bitch.”
Maddie’s solo is up first and it’s kind of intense.
It still looks familiar though so talk about a “new Maddie” seems premature. But Jabby says she came back strong and her technique was superb.
Brooke’s solo is next. Looks like she’s still doing the same acro moves.
Jabby says she nailed it and the old Brooke is back.
I thought it was cute, although not perfect. Jabby says they could have danced better, but it turned out okay because it’s a musical theater number and therefore telling a story.
In the green room, Jabby tells them all they did a good job. She pulls Nia aside and explains why she pulled the duet last week. She says everything happens for a reason and she wants Nia to understand that this was her way of nipping Holly’s bad behavior in the bud.
Meanwhile, temperatures in hell plummet
Holly’s impressed and asks if this is Jabby’s version of an apology. Of course, once a Jabby, always a Jabby, so she says no, she’s glad she pulled the duet.
The girls get ready for the group and Jabby’s yelling about putting dollar bills on the costumes. Holly doesn’t think they need to use real money, but how else are they going to get used to life on the pole?
Group dance. I guess this week they are supposed to be honky tonk strippers or something.
Shawty make it rain
But they do a pretty good job. Jabby calls it “innovative” and “different” even though it’s pretty much the same as every other number they do.
