That Darn Gossip Boy

Face it we all have that friend that can’t keep their mouth shut no matter what. Hello that is me. I hear something juicy and super glue wont keep my mouth closed. I am Carlos Rodriquez and I am honored at this amazing opportunity to write for Junior Hollywood Reporter.  So let me tell you what I heard!

Chloe Lukasiak’s mom Christi posted this picture saying “Working on a new project” well come on Momma Christi.  Can you be more specific. By the way love that top. So is this for Chloe Does it? Is it a movie? is it a sportswear ad? Am I getting warmer momma Christi?  What ever it is her fans will love it because it is Chloe. It could be her shooting a roll of toilet paper of the top of an old toilet in the city dump and the fans will go nuts. Speaking of which:

True to form the second Chloe post something she is doing Maddie Zeigler fans start wall papering social media with stuff she is either doing or did 100 years ago just to get her name out there too. But this time they claim she is working on something AMAZING with this hair dresser guy. um ok. Fella what the heck is that in the center of her head? Looks like something I have seen on fancy cakes.  Let us keep in mind that Maddie recently signed to do some work with a modeling agency and this guy does hair for tons and I mean tons of magazine layouts but no, of course its for a super role in a super movie just like Book of Henry was her movie and she was the star of it. Hey don’t shoot the messenger I got caught up in that hype too and thought wow this is going to be amazing because after all the whole idea of the movie was Henry was protecting Christina only Henry gets killed off in like their first five minutes and Christina is barely seen only talked about. Like what the heck was that?

BBDaXEX
A bunch of worthless thug punks in Scotland are attacking Susan Boyle every time she steps out of her house now. Buy you some mace girl.  You need some mace? I will ship you some if you need it.  Disgraceful that someone of her fame and age needs to fear for their lives every time they walk out the door having bottles thrown at her head and profanity screamed at her.  Hey Scotland yard are you real? I am watching you. You better protect my girl or I will be wildhorses all the way to Scotland.

BBDe5OUJada Pinkett Smith  showed up at the BET Awards looking like a million bucks. Is she getting younger?

BBDemkNDJ Khaled, and his mini me  Asahd Tuck Khaled, and Nicole Tuck turn up for the BET awards. Is this not the cutest kid ever!!

BBDb8SQAnd  did you hear about this guy who spent over 20,000.00 on a funeral for his son and a week later gets a phone call saying “Hi Dad” The authorities could not ID the body by finger print and messed up royally, I just want to know will the city pay him back for burying some homeless guy for them? I can not begin to imagine the horrible pain and suffering this family has gone though but I sure would be talking to lawyer if I was them.

19489723_1273650496087970_2039230136_nWanna put money on TMZ being the first to get a photo of Abby Lee Miller when she goes to jail? What are you guys stalking the woman? Come on every day a new picture emerges. If Abby walks out the door TMZ is there with a camera.  Come on Abby close your mouth and put on some make up or something. You know good and well they are out there watching for you.  By the way nice shoes. And what the heck was with those pictures Abby was posting yesterday in some mansion with her all dolled up looking 100 lbs thinner? When was that taken or whose body did she photoshop her head on. Because the pics from TMZ (Yea them again) yesterday and the ones today say ummm nope not Abby’s body.  Same face, Same New Jersey Housewife bump in the hair but nope no way , not the same body. Sorry Abby didn’t float. Try a new turd.

th Rumors are also flying that my girl Miss Kendall K Vertes has booked a movie. Sent a message to Queen Momma Jill asking for verification but she did not answer. Hurt my feelings Queen Jill.  You know we love you and Kendall K. So spill it. Is she or  aint she in that movie or is someone hacking IMDb again.  Anyway sure hope my girl does some more work after Dance Moms because I don’t want to move to Pennsylvania to stalk her. It is way to cold up there for me and my delicate body cant handle cold. By the way isn’t that the same shirt Kenzie had on in a recent photo shoot in PA at her shared Birthday party?

Well that is enough hog wash for one night. When we know something for sure someone else will write about it because I just write about the juicy stuff and make folks wonder. I mean why should I be the only one staying awake at night wondering what on earth is true and what isn’t anymore.

Star of The Day @WylieSofia Sofia Wylie

Sofia Wylie our Star pick of the Day by: Sabrina Culpepper for Junior Hollywood Reporter.

Sofia Wylie is currently playing the role of Buffy on the Disney Channels Andi Mack Show. She is vivacious, funny, cute and brings a lot to the show with her character of Buffy. As Andi’s best friend Sofia keeps things interesting.
The beautiful young actress is more than just a pretty face though.  Check out her you tube channel and watch her dance:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqoIMPEM_OBU_myHaDRXShA

Sofia  has been featured in music videos, appeared in Kidz Bop commercials, and performed on the stage of Radio City Music Hall for an America’s Got Talent live show. . She became a brand ambassador for Sadie Jane Dancewear and Kurveshop Dancewear. She made an appearance in a season two episode of the Nickelodeon series School of Rock and earned a recurring role as the character June on the series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.  Sofia has appeared on national commercials showcasing her triple threat abilities in dancing, singing and acting! She has performed on stage with Justin Bieber on his World Tour.  And all of this by the age of 13 year old.
Sofia loves to dance and is happy to have a good balance between acting and dancing. When on break from the show she loves going home to Arizona and hanging out with her dance friends while brushing up on her dancing skills. She is hoping that Buffy gets to do some dancing on the show. So do we Sofia. So Do we.
Check out Sofia’s role as Buffy on Disney Channels Andi Mack show. The show is something different from what Disney normally produces and has become one of our favorite shows to watch together. It more accurately portrays real life challenges of tweens and teens today with a touch of innocence and bold statements at the same time. It also does not shadow real life problems but puts it right out there and shows Sofia helping her friend deal with them.  We are hoping this show is the gateway to Disney doing more real life shows in the future for kids, tweens and teens. The world is changing and we are happy to see Disney changing with it with this break out show of Andi Mack and showcasing this wonderful cast of young talent.

Grace Vanderwaal Releases New Single

Imagine being a quirky adorable 12 year old sitting in your bedroom making up songs to sing and decide you know what I want to go on America’s got Talent just to see if anyone likes my singing. You don’t even tell your friends and school mates you like to sing and the next thing you know you don’t have to tell them because everyone in America is talking about you.  Not only did Grace Vanderwaal go on the show she won it hands down.

This little pixie of a girl stepped up to the mic and started singing “I don’t know my name” and suddenly the entire country knew her name and face and were not likely to forget it any time soon. Her song was not only self written but it came at a time when American Youth needed someone to look up to and realize they were not alone in this world with not knowing who they were or where they were going. But they found hope in Grace. If this girl can get up in front of millions and sing they could do what ever they needed to do to get through life too.
Winning AGT changed this little girls life. She went into online courses being homeschooled and started traveling the country not only writing and singing songs but recording them as well. She post her songs on her youtube channel and the fans kept flocking in.
Grace has a unique voice. Not every one gets it.  But when she opens her mouth to sing you hear an old soul escaping her mouth and if you had your eyes closed you would never guess it was a young girl singing. There is just something different about her tone and raspy voice that catches your attention.
Grace is now 13 years old and has traveled the world. She has produced albums and is set to star in a documentary about her budding music career.  I bet when she walked on that stage of Americas Got Talent she never imagined how much her life was about to change forever.
Her newest release moonlight is  proof Miss Grace Vanderwaal will be around for a long time sharing her amazing talent with us.

A Legend Already: Bailee Madison

A lot of things have changed over the years with Bailee Madison but one thing remains the same. That face and smile.  She could not hide in a crowd of a million people because she has a certain look to her no one can replicate.
We asked some of Bailee’s fans recently what is it about her that keeps them interested and just about everyone said the same things. Talent. This girl is overloaded with talent.  Some said the innocent appearance she has, the fact that she has remained true to herself and did not feel like she had to be a Hollywood sell out like most girls who by the age of 12 are trying to be sex sirens for roles.
I will go as far as saying Bailee Madison can play everything from a Nun to a Serial killer and make you believe that is what she is.  Bailee Madison is extremely talented and we think she will be a Hollywood Legacy in her lifetime .That is a lot to say for someone so young.
Bailee currently stars on The Good Witch along with Catherine Bell and James Denton on the Hallmark Channel. I don’t know about you guys but to me Hallmark is right up there With Disney. You make it big on either channel and you are set for life.  One has to wonder when does this girl rest. She is in one thing after the other it seems.
Bailee starred with Natalie Portman in the movie Brothers and had everyone so engrossed in her acting it is no wonder she has been in high demand. She delivers with each and every performance.  The list of things she has done go on forever and I imagine by the time she is ready to retire it will be one of the longest in Hollywood history.
Bailee is also now trying her hand at directing.
She is currently filming The Strangers 2 and we cant wait to see it.
We have followed several of Bailee’s fans on social media and by far the best source of information is @BaileeFanofCACV  on twitter. They are devoted to Bailee’s career and many times post things before the media does.  Don’t ask me how these people get info but it is super cool to see such dedicated fans supporting this young actress.
We recently did a give away of A Cowgirls story on Twitter and to date it was our best contest.  This was Bailee’s movie and an excellent cast  made this video a stand out winner.
We know in her near future we will see Bailee Madison taking the stage at all the awards shows because she is young, determined and talented beyond belief. She will last a long time in this industry and remain true to who she is doing it.

Why Do Chloe Lukasiak Fans Stay Loyal

I recently asked if fans would like to complete a survey on their favorite stars and was over whelmed by the number of fans who responded.  Will start  first with Chloe Lukasiak.
Chloe was introduced to the world during season one of Lifetime TV reality shows “Dance Moms”.   She was a young girl who the world watched grow up and prove herself over and over regardless of how much her teacher Abby Lee Miller screamed at her that she would never be a success.
Chloe stood out to us when she won Teen Choice awards as the first ever choice dancer winner.  She walked to the stage in an outfit that knocked me out. She was gorgeous and I said “Wow, who is this girl?” Then her speech really stuck with me. She thanked all her teachers who without them she would not be where she is now and then turned around and said “If anyone tells you that you cant do it, shouldn’t do it, do it anyway and prove them wrong” putting emphasize on the last three words. So basically she thanked Abby Lee Miller for teaching her and then turned around and killed her with kindness by saying “Who isn’t good enough? Not me for sure” I fell in love.  This young girl had guts and that is something you need in Hollywood. After winning Teen Choice Choice Dancer she turned around and won Industry favorite Dancer under 17. She really had my attention now.
So I of course asked my friends who is this girl. Never did I imagine it would label me a dumb male with no sense at all. Also never did I imagine one of my friends had the boxed sets of seasons 1, 2, and 3 and we would have to binge watch them on a rainy week end filled with pizza and chips. (By the way I know now that Chloe does not like pizza. Who doesn’t like pizza?)
After watching this we had to of course buy more seasons and watch them.  Then we had to go online and watch videos and catch up on all things Dance Moms. I consider myself a bit of an authority on the show now. But the one thing we had to do that was very upsetting was get our personal accounts into the Facebook Dance Moms groups and watch what the fans were saying.
This is one nasty fandom. They beat these little girls down like they know them personally and for some they have no life other than sitting on the computers all day searching for things to be the first ones to post about them.  It has been proven several people have multiple accounts to fight with others about which kid is best. Some of them actually would post on a post with their multiple accounts fighting with themselves. I kid you not . It was hysterical.
So we decided we would poll the fans and sent personal messages to some of the most ardent fans and some of the kind fans and asked them to take part in this article. No one will be identified unless they gave us permission to use their names or handles to protect them from the trolls that seem to like to come out of the woodwork and attack people because they support a team member they are against. yea, told you it was weird.  You do not see this type of hatred in any other fandom. Heck the RHOA fans have more class.
Here are some of the responses for Chloe. We will of course do blogs for each girl we were able to get responses for.  Chloe happened to have the most so she is first. Here are the top ten replies. There is no way we can post them all.

1.  I support Chloe because she has proven that she can do things without having people call in favors for her. She gets jobs based on her talent and not because someone arranged it or paid for it for her. She is humble and you never see her saying me, me, me,  She thanks her fans instead of saying go buy this or that of mine. Chloe has a good family structure behind her that supports what she wants to do.  She also encourages people to read and shares the books she is reading.   When Chloe does charity things she does it out of the goodness of her heart and not for publicity. She forms friendships with people that last because they are real friends and she does not call everyone she meets her best friend.  She is just genuine in everything she does.

2.  I think Chloe is my favorite because she was always so supportive of the other girls when she was young on the show. If Abby made someone cry you saw Chloe hugging them and cheering them up.  Chloe just had the cutest expressions when she was younger and she still does. She could have easily hid the fact that she had silent sinus syndrome and get it fixed without going public but she wanted to reach out to let people know what was going on and warn them if they have the same issues to get it checked before it got worse. She truly cares about her fans. She is loyal to them and always thanks them unlike some of the girls on the show.  Chloe follows fans back sometimes and that means a lot to the ones she follows. It is the best thing to happen in some of their lives when she follows back.  She is just real. With Chloe what you see if real. She does not wear a false flipper to hide her teeth, she went through the awkward braces stage a lot of the fans faced too. When she does her videos she does them with the fans in mind asking them what they would like to see her do.  She is just kind, considerate and beautiful inside and out. I feel like I grew up with Chloe and she is one of my friends even though I likely will never meet her.

3.  Chloe to me represents all that is good in society. She cares about people and it comes across when she talks to the fans. She is well mannered and sits like a young lady should sit when she is interviewed. She doesn’t talk like an ill mannered rude teen or interrupt the people interviewing her. She also never makes it sound like she deserves this and more and does not have an arrogant bone in her body. Chloe is a perfect role model to young girls every where. She shares books and ask her fans to read them with her and tell her what they liked about the books. I read the whole Red Queen series because of Chloe. I loved them and it is the first books I have read since fourth grade that I did not have to read to make a report on. Because of Chloe I now ask for books when my mom goes to the store and have continued to read two to three books a month.  She really made me feel like it is not so nerdy to sit home on a Saturday night curled up with a book instead of being bored hanging out with my friends doing nothing in particular just to be hanging out.  I get teased sometimes but two of my friends now ask to read the books when I am done with them. Chloe did that and likely has no idea how many teens she has got to read. But that is Chloe. She doesn’t do things for attention she does it because she likes it and wants to encourage others to do it too.

4. I liked Chloe and Paige from the beginning. I loved how they said they were twinning all the time.  They were so cute together and best friends in life off the show too. I love that she continued to dance in peoples videos after she stopped dancing. I hated that the trolls made fun of her saying well she is dancing for people no one has heard of. Its not like she is dancing for big named stars. What they don’t understand is that Chloe danced for people trying to get noticed and brought her fans to them to watch her dance. I had never heard of Jess Godwin before Chloe danced for her beautifully in a video but now I think I own all of her CDs.   I loved her dancing in Bianca Ryan’s Video for her song Alice too. She was just beautiful. I was thrilled to hear she booked the movie Center Stage on pointe and bought the video.   I think Chloe did an excellent job in the movie and also bought A Cowgirls Story only because Chloe was in it. This movie showed that Chloe can act any part they give her.  I love seeing Chloe doing well in her career but what I love most is that she does things that are family appropriate and staying true to herself. She has never had to do sexy photo shoots to get noticed. She is always classy. Chloe is the girl I would want my daughters to look up to and want to be like because she doesn’t let anyone tell her she cant do something. She gives it her all and shows she can do anything .

5.  Following message from a fan from Twitter:

1) Chloe is such an inspiration to me even though I’m older than her for several reasons. She was always so sweet, humble and kind, and never gave up even when almost anybody else would have. Her strength of character is unbelievable. Her fearlessness is commendable.

2) my favorite dance video of Chloe’s is Alice by Bianca Ryan because Chloe is the epitome of a beautiful ballerina. I loved her dress and her hair and the song and the emotion was perfect for Chloe. Bianca chose Chloe for that song and it’s strikingly beautiful – the combination of Bianca’s voice and lyrics and Chloe’s dancing and emotion.

3) I’m most excited for Chloe’s clothing line, her new book and her movies!

4) Chloe was 9 yrs old when I first discovered her on Dance Moms and watched from the beginning of the show. She totally impressed me with her sweet, kind, humble nature. Her relationship with her mother was and still is, incredible. Her holding hands with the other girls was precious even though they competed against each other. Her sweetness and support for her teammates whom she called her sisters, her strength in the face of adversity and her willingness and motto “we’ll try to do better next time”. Whenever the group got 1st place, she was the first to jump up, throw her arms in the air in victory and was so happy and proud. Basically Chloe’s huge heart of gold is why I fell in love with her. Fun fact – Chloe & Christi are the reason I joined twitter because I got to meet her that way.

5) I love Chloe’s red carpet style. She is always stunning.

6) travel blogs – I like to see Chloe doing anything, having fun and being herself. All the ideas you mentioned would be fun to see her do. Hot air balloon would be awesome.

7)type of movie next – she is so versatile so any movie, maybe comedy when she gets more experience. I know Loophole’s going to be action-packed so that’s exciting. Plus she’s playing a college student! Go Chloe. I loved Cowgirls Story, she was amazing

8)clothing line – cute tops like bell sleeve or that crisp black and white (navy/white) striped top. Jeans or straight line cropped pants, moto jacket would be cool too. All of it! Casual but cute

9)books – I haven’t read any yet, but I do like the type of books she recommends. I will definitely read her book though!

10) I truly truly wish Chloe is able to continue to do what she loves, (dance, acting, whatever she wants to do), that she gets an excellent education because she’s brilliant, finds a loving person to share it with eventually, stays true to herself, and above all, be happy.

6. This fan wanted to remain unnamed as well.
1. Chloe never gave up when she had the chance too. She has taught me how to bring out negative things into positive outcomes. Instead of Chloe having a sweet 16 party she had a small get together with her family- I am very impressed with her because most 16 year olds think they have to have a big party but they do not. Chloe has always said it is better to have a small group of friends rather than a big group of friends that are not really friends. Also, when her ex got so much hate she stood up for him, sadly he did not stand up for Chloe after the break up but we saw that Chloe is the bigger person. 2. Favorite dance video is Tongue by AJ. Just because of the story behind it and you realize who is really there for you as a friend. 3. Really I am excited for everything with her- 2017 is her year!! 4. When she was 9 first season of dance moms because Chloe has taught me so many life lessons! 5. I like her red carpet looks the best she is always dressed age appropriate and it always so stylish. 6. More daring because if Chloe can do it then anyone can do it! 7. I would like to see her in a Disney movie because she loves Disney! 8. Hope to see girls my age in their mid 20s or early 20s clothes for us- I love her style 9. To be honest none(Question was what would you like to see different about them) . 10. That Chloe always stays true to herself! -No Name

7. Chloe has inspired me in so many ways.  I got to meet her at a meet and greet and she was so nice and kind she made me want to be a better person to everyone. She is so humble and seems shy when people praise how good she is. Like she doesn’t want people to tell her how much they love her but they really do love her.  She gives great advice on her videos and shares books she is reading. I am reading a lot more now than I ever did and I enjoy it. She does home tours and shows us she is just like the rest of us who has a little sister we love but can be a pest to us too. Chloe adores her little sister and made me want to be a better sister to mine even though some days I wonder if it is worth wanting to have that bond.  She has a great family and they are active supporting her on social media saying how proud they are of her and how she inspires them to be better people. Some of the girls moms just brag about what the girl is doing and sounds like they demand you go buy a magazine they are in or watch a video.  Chloe is a trend setter. She said she wanted to write a book and took her time making sure it was right while others rushed out and hired ghost writers to get books out fast.  She wanted to do a clothing line for years. She did not rush to put out just anything but waited until she could actually do the designs instead of hiring someone to do it and put her name on it. she wanted to have hands on and be the boss of her own clothing line instead of saying she did it while it was really someone else work and she just approved it like others did. Chloe has a good moral compass and teaches young girls that they don’t have to be the first they can take their time and do it right and take credit for what they actually do in life instead of hiring others to do it for them. I love watching Chloe Dance, I love watching her act, and I love the life lessons I learn from her. But if she went home tomorrow and said I don’t want this anymore I just want to be a normal teen and go to school with the kids I grew up with and hang out at ball games and go to prom I would still want to know what she is doing in life because one day I expect Chloe will be some famous person who makes a huge difference in this world because she puts her whole heart in what she does.- No Name

8.  I think Chloe represents what young girls should be like in todays society. She does not try to dress sexy showing off her body or falling out of her clothes like some of the girls on the show does. She doesn’t  get loud and have to be the center of attention when in videos with her friends but respects that she is not the only one in the video.  She sets good examples of how to act like a lady instead of trying to be blusterous and take over everything. She has been in interviews with co stars who just run all over it with me, me , me and Chloe sits politely and allows them to make fools of themselves and shows she was raised with manners.  Some of the girls open gifts from fans in their videos and act like it is trash to them. But Chloe hasn’t done that. She is always polite and thanks her fans showing appreciation for everyone who supports her.   She comments on fans post from time to time when she can and that means a lot to all the fans. It shows she is normal and respects those who support her.  She never post go vote for me for this or that but says you guys mean so much to me and I could not do any of this without you when the fans nominate her. Other girls post the link and say “Go vote for me” Like they are ordering you to vote for them. I like several girls on the show but some of their manners just turn me off. I don’t like to be made to feel like I am being ordered or bullied to be their fan. Chloe never makes fans feel that way.- Sarah C.

9.  To me Chloe represents what a dancer should look like. She is poised and graceful, Tall with long legs and beautiful.  She dances with feeling and glides though the dances instead of looking like she is forcing the moves or attacking the dance like some others have been called out for doing.  Chloe’s acting really made me happy. I was afraid she would be to shy but she really gets into each character and makes you forget that is Chloe the dancer up there but you see who she is portraying and like the characters. Every single time she walks a red carpet she is polished and stylish. She looks like a million dollars every time she goes out.  Even when she is just walking down the street her clothes look perfect on her and she is always well groomed.   That is an example I try to follow from her.  I hate seeing the girls on this show with their breast hanging out and shorts cut up to the privates like their next feature role will be in a porn movie.  Chloe sets an example that you do not have to sell yourself as a sex symbol to get ahead in the world but you can respect yourself and generate that self confidence.  I love that because so many young girls from Disney and other child actors go crazy with being sexy and wild. Chloe turned 16 as a respectful young lady and not someone who sells themselves for attention. That shows me I can be a good girl and still be noticed.   Some of the other girls just don’t look good in anything they wear but Chloe always looks polished and perfectly respectable.   I love all of the dance videos she has been in and even if she did do some questionable dances I am sure she would make them look like a graceful dancer instead of a sleazy dance.   I cant wait for her clothing line to come out and will be buying some of it. I have bought from two others lines and one I loved and one fell apart when I washed it and never looked good again after the first wash.   To me Chloe just shows us all that we can be ourselves and not have to be like everyone else to fit in.- Tonya B.

10.  I love Chloe Lukasiak because she just makes girls feel like she is just like us and we can be ourselves. We don’t have to do things we don’t feel comfortable doing to get ahead and we don’t have to compromise our morals.  Chloe was not my favorite at first but the more my favorite showed bad attitude I could not stand her anymore and started noticing Chloe was always nice and supportive. she would say I hope I win not I am going to win because I am better than them.  But to Chloe winning was not everything she just loved to dance and she loved that she made her fans happy.   I have always loved reading so when Chloe used to have time to do the book club on her videos I loved it because she gave a lot of good titles to read. And she talked about the book on her video too so you felt like she was just like us. When Chloe did her room tour I showed my mom her closet in the video and asked if we could do that with mine and it made me start wanting to take better care of my clothes and not throw them in the floor because her room is so neat and her clothes always look so nice on her. She always dominates the red carpets with her style and I love that her hair is always neat and her make up is natural and not painted on. I don’t like when she wears bright red lipstick for photoshoots because it is not her.   She looks better natural.   I don’t like when Clara is in the videos with her because she is loud and complete opposite of Chloe. I mean I don’t dislike Clara but I don’t watch the videos to see Clara or Christi. I watch to see Chloe. But I guess some fans ask to see them so she includes them.  I just wish they would not be so loud and try to take the attention away from Chloe.   I like that she is sincere with her fans, loyal to her fans and friends, sets good examples for young girls to follow, is humble and modest and above all that she appreciates and shows it to her fans.

All of these comments are from her fans. To me Chloe is a good example of what sixteen year old girls should represent to the world. She is charming while remaining true to herself. She is poised and graceful and I enjoy watching her dance. I would love to see her do some different genres in the future just to see what she can do. what ever Chloe Lukasiak decides to do in the future I feel certain she will be successful at it because after all she is Chloe. The Sweet heart teen of Reality TV breaking out in so many different areas that the sky is the limit for her. One thing that is clear from her fans survey they all feel like she is a good role model, she is loyal, and she is a kind hearted person they all adore and will follow for as long as she is in the public eye.

Video Review: Bigger Fatter Liar: By Alexis T.

In the beginning I thought oh no. This is a cross between Ferris Bueller and Home Alone. But the movie did catch my attention shortly afterward.
Ricky Garcia did an wonderful job with his acting in this movie and I would say he did every bit as good as Mathew Broderick in Ferris Bueller and Better than Caulkin in Home Alone.
Jodelle Ferland is the perfect person to act with him and they played off each other perfectly.  Barry Bostwick I would say is what messed up this movie. He over acted the role and just was not the villain he was meant to be but came across more as a nut who had no business working in big business.
Ricky plays Kevin Shepherd who lies a lot and no one believes him when his plans for a video game are stolen by Bostwicks character.  He goes to great extremes to get the man to admit to stealing it and sadly the plot is predictable but funny at the same time.
I enjoyed the movie and For Ricky and Jodelle I give them both 5 our of 5 stars. Bostwick I give a 2 and the movie in General a 4.
Ricky is up for a teen choice award for his portrayal of Kevin but sadly he is up against some tough actors.  It would be nice if Teen choice would stick to teens and stop allowing adults to be nominated because Ricky deserves to win for his acting in this movie.

Will The Real Abby Lee Miller Please Stand Up? By: Sabina C. and Alexis T.

On June 4th 2017 Abby Lee Miller announced she would do a brief meet and autograph signing at a friends store in Tampa. So we did what any group of close friends would do. First we argued over who would cover it. Then we drew straws with the two shortest straws having to go. Just to be fair none of us are fans of Abby Lee Miller or her show. But we do have followers who are so we knew we needed to see this legend dance teacher in person.
First it was a miserable hot dreary rainy gray day in Tampa on June 4th and we were told the doors would open at 2. Expecting a huge turnout we arrived at 1 to find 29 people there waiting to get in. First of all to be fair we were already grouchy from driving from Orlando to Tampa in the rain.  Had we known Abby was making the same drive we would have called her up and said “Hey Abby how about giving us a lift, we will pay for gas”  We hate driving in Florida. Even more so in the rain.
We both came away with different views so here are those two opinions of our day:

ALEXIS:   I want to start off by saying I am not an Abby Lee hater.  I understand why she needs to be tight on the moms because they tend to try to take over if she is not firm with them.  I don’t like the mean things she says to the kids but not being on the set we really do not know how much production has to do with it.
Abby made a grand entrance with her hair in rollers so her friends told us no pictures of her arriving. My first opinion was OMG she is so pretty in person.  I did notice most of the kids were nonchalant about her entrance and more interested in looking at the dance wear in the Attitudes boutique.  But one little fan made me laugh out loud when she said “Oh my god, She sounds exactly like she does on TV” I don’t know why it hit me as so funny. What did she expect her to sound like?
Abby went into make up and hair some where in a back office and people started to take their places.
When Abby came out she was made up and looked nothing like the Abby who arrived. I would say time for a new hair and make up person or send this one back to school. Abby looked thin when she arrived and when she took the stage her hair was so blown out if made her look heavier and she honestly did not need stage makeup being in the same room with no movie cameras rolling.
She was polite and very friendly and nothing like what you see on TV. She gently guided young girls on how they should sit and talked to them the way a doting mother talks to her child.   I do wish she had saved the pictures until last but she did them first taking away from the time she talked.
I learned some new things when she was talking but most of what she said I had seen before in other videos fans have posted. Some of the things she said we had to verify with others because it bothered us both I will let Sabrina tell you about that since she is the one who did the verification.
One suggestion I would make to anyone who does these type of meetings is anyone who comes through the door buys a ticket. When we were in line we heard several adults say they were just going to stand off to the side and paid for the child only however we saw those same adults take an extra free tee shirt they did not pay for. That bothered me that they were blatantly stealing.
We could not stay the entire time because Sabrina had an interview at Raymond James Stadium that afternoon but I enjoyed the time listening to Abby talk and seeing a different side of her.

SABRINA:

Who arrives with progresso soup can size rollers in her hair yelling no pictures? Abby Lee Miller that is who. We saw you sitting behind the store. You had time to take the rollers out before coming in. You knew you were going to the meet up why did you not get ready before you went? What are you teaching your students other than do not arrive looking your best.  What did those kids waiting to see you learn? Do not always have your best foot forward when in public meeting fans.
Secondly get rid of that old fashioned hair and make up. You do not need it and are much more attractive with your natural hair and make up.
Now for the meet up. So so, Nothing she has not said a million times. Abby has a prepared speech for every single meet and greet. Its all the producers fault what ever it is.  She got a hang nail? Its the producers fault, She rented a very expensive building in a very bad  part of town (According to one fans mom who has been to ALDC LA) All the producers fault.  She had to pay for floors and remodeling out of her pocket for HER Studio. All producers fault. She did not have costumes and had to make them for HER Studio. All producers fault.
Here is  a clue Abby they were there to film a “Reality” Show not support your lifestyle or give you a dream studio.  You did the studio rescue show. Couldn’t you rescue your own studio out of pocket.   By the way calling out your friend saying you met her because you saved her studio was just tacky as all get out.
When asked what was Abby’s favorite Maddie solo one of her friends rudely yelled “Chandelier” From the back and Abby laughed and said “Oh yea, Chandelier because I had absolutely nothing to do with it” But she never answered the question.
Then of course Abby could not let a minute pass by that she did not throw a dig at the dancer she is the most jealous of her fame. Abby not one person in that audience (Which was slim) Asked you a question about Chloe but you had to throw shade on her.  Abby alleged NOT ONE Of the girls or mother’s wanted Chloe back. NOT ONE.  She said she was in the hotel asleep when her make up lady arrived crying like a baby telling her Chloe is back. You said the entire cast was very upset with her coming back. Well that clearly upset some of the little fans in the audience. Were you trying to destroy fan bases? Were you trying to make your girls you taught look petty and Jealous? Because that is exactly how you came across.
Well here is the scoop. We individually contacted three of the mothers. Three of them all said “That is a lie” All three of them said they have maintained their relationships with the Lukasiak family off the show through the years. Who should we believe? I don’t think the vote is looking favorable for you Abby.
Do you dislike Chloe because she is a tall beautiful blonde like your mother and your mother clearly loved this girl? What is the issue with you and Chloe Abby? Regardless of how you feel about her mother it is very childish and immature to hold it against a child you are paid to teach.  Think about that while on your extended vacation. You owe  a lot of kids apologies because there is a huge difference between Corrective criticism and degrading a person because you don’t like them or their parents.

The only thing you teach the children is how to hate and climb over each other to get to the top. Well if that top is fake and padded with called in favors it will crumble and fall underneath the child and you are the only one they will look to for blame.
Now Abby wants people to believe she and the Zeiglers have nothing to do with each other now. Really Abby?
19190979_1263828480403505_1352046842_n So you have nothing to do with them but managed a seat at the FAMILY viewing of the Book of Henry Maddies first movie.
Abby the whole world knows you created that childs fame. We know if it had not been for you no one would have ever heard of her. Either stop lying about your relationship with her or stalking her which ever it is.
As for the meet and greet or autograph session what ever it was. I will agree. Dance moms are rude. Rude and ignorant in this case. I heard one grandmother say she had to leave because there was no seating. Plus her granddaughter got her picture taken and was like oh well ok I am done lets go. But every place we moved we picked up rude comments on our camera while we were trying to video the talk.  Common rude comments from women who said “I’m not paying I am just going to browse the store while she goes to the meet and greet. Or I will stand along the wall.” Did they? No, The grabbed every seat in there and had grandmothers standing. When one grandmother got up to get her shirt that dance studio that arrived took her seat for one of the kids and when she came back they never blinked to make that child sit on the floor with the rest. RUDE. Plus why were they even there. How many of those adults hogging chairs paid.
You are unorganized Abby. Do pictures at the end. That guarantees you have a captive audience instead of making everyone wait to hear you talk for ten minutes and then you need a break. It was two hours for Pete sake. You needed a break? Really?
Abby I don’t believe anything you said after finding out you lied about the girls and not wanting Chloe back. I feel like a bad example was set for these children there and you were just off topic with every answer. Stop telling people to turn off their phones. The world has already heard you trash the Hyland family over and over on youtube.
I hope when you come out of Jail you are a different person. You need to use this time to stop blaming the world for who you are and accept responsibility that you can change.
Fire that street walker looking hair and make up lady wearing skin tight pants and see through blouse with black bra. She looked like she slept in it. You can not look your best when your person making you up looks like she did. Or at the minimum hide her from impressionable young girls. Your friend in Tampa were the best thing about this meet up. They were professional, nice and humorous at times. Especially the lady who said “Abby decided to do this at the last minute before she leaves. And she is leaving. Oh yes she is leaving” Like she could not wait for you to get out of there. You were wrong to call out the friend gracious enough to host you as being on studio rescue. no one would know it had you not said it. You made her look like a failure while she was promoting her business of dance wear.
In Summation Abby grow up. Just grow up and read some etiquette books while you are in jail. Stop throwing out empty threats that you are going to tell the truth and it will all come out because your credibility is lacking right now. Anyone with a brain should know you are blackmailing those around you to include you and give you work. Why they are not charging you is beyond me. The world has seen the threats.
Grow up Abby. You have a chance to be so much more. Grow up and stop seeking revenge and forcing people to support you. Earn it. Stop calling in favors for kids to get jobs and make them earn it.

Kendall Vertes Sends Powerful Message to Fans.

Kendall Vertes posted  a photo to Instagram yesterday that says “love me for me, not for what I look like”  What a powerful statement coming from such a beautiful young lady. Kendall is letting fans know they need to accept people for who they are in real life not just the beauty they see on the screens.

Kendall and her mother Jill arrived on the Dance Moms scene during season two.  The first thing you noticed about kendall were her eyes. They just jump right out at you but it was not long before you see the personality behind those eyes.  Kendall has a great sense of humor seen on many of her you tube and snap chat videos.  Her mom Jill is a riot whether meaning to be or not she always makes you laugh and it is easy to see Kendall has moms personality.
The thing fans need to understand is Kendall does not need to latch onto anyone on that show to be noticed. All she has to do is walk in front of the camera.  Fans watch for different things and since we were not original fans of the show it was easier for us to notice more than dance styles, looks, or who was more popular. We saw personalities of the girls (and moms)  and wonder still how on earth this mixture of personalities managed for seven seasons to work. The producers have to all be bald now from pulling their hair out!
Everyone says Kendall latched onto Maddie Zeigler to be a star.  First of all we do read. And we do understand publicity.  Sure Maddie is the main girl pushed to fame on this show so it is natural for them to say so and so is her BFF to get them noticed next. If you follow written reports everyone including her new step father is her BFF.

I think one of the things we love most about Kendall other than that zany personality is that every summer she is a kid. She takes time off for family and isn’t working all the time.  She goes on family vacations with extended family and appears to have a well grounded family life.  The fans say she is not working so she is not serious. Yes, she is very serious. She is serious that family is everything and you can not alienate your family for a career.
Kendall appears to be very close to both of her older sisters and they appear to adore her. The glue that holds any family together is spending quality time together and her family makes sure they do this.

8 The picture of Success is a family bonded together.

Kendall has many talents other than acting and dancing, She is a great singer. She just did not have good video producers but her voice is amazing.   She plays tennis like her big sister, she is loved by her entire family who always support her on social media and in life, and I may be mistaken but I truly believe she is a daddy’s girl and loved by all her family very much.
So next time you think Kendall does not have it all think again. She has what she wants. While other kids are afraid to be out of the limelight or they will lose fans Kendall says love me as I am or don’t love me at all. She does not feel she owes her life to fame but that her life is great just like it is.  She does what she wants to do and if it is not something she wants to do then she is fine with saying no.  She wants to have her time with her family and friends back in Pittsburg. She wants to still have some normal life.
She knows she does not have to cheapen herself doing photo shoots not appropriate for her age. She knows she will succeed at what ever she decided to do with her future because her family breeds success and confidence in their children.
Kendall is fine. She will succeed at what ever she does because she knows the real importance of life. Be yourself. Love yourself. If others do not accept you for who you are then ignore them and continue to just be you. You cant be anyone else so do not try. Just love who you are and what you can do instead of always wanting to be someone else or have more than someone else.
Be a Kendall and accept everyone for who they are inside.

Did The Fat Lady Finally Sing? -Sabrina C. Writer.

True to her rudeness Abby Lee Miller took to Social Media last night posting that she has quit the Lifetime TV show Dance Moms. Well she did not say exactly she quit. She said she is no longer associated with the show.
Miss Miller tried to convince followers it was because of Creative differences with the producers .  Why do people not give the general audience credit for having a brain? I guess it had nothing to do with all the negative  publicity surrounding the dance studio owner? Throwing chairs at children? Being accused of verbal abuse and pinching her students until they bled? Week after week berating students? Getting arrested and facing Jail time for bankruptcy fraud? Being accused of smuggling money into the country and using her students to do so? No none of that negativity had a thing to do with it.
Lifetime TV when I was younger was my moms go to channel. When I was home from school lifetime was on the TV all day to watch their great family friendly movies. I don’t know what it is now but if and when I have kids I don’t think they will watch much lifetime TV. It seems they go for Shock value now over quality TV.

The moms on this show some have been good and some have been like OH MY are they for real?  In order to get your child to the top you have to be willing to step all over other moms but more importantly the other children. I did not like this at all about this show. You saw week after week other little ones get their hopes and dreams crushed and made to believe they would never be as good as the favored child. Who ever the favor of the week was. I honestly never understood why this show put all their eggs in one basket but they did and divided fan bases. This caused them to lose viewers and ratings.   Viewers just got sick and tired of watching week after week the same dance with different music and no one else being given a chance to show their talent.
Then you have to ask yourself will Miss Miller actually have to serve time for her crimes or has she used her mother’s upstanding reputation and connections once again to build her own life up?
I did buy and read Miss Millers book. I felt sad for her honestly. It seems she did not have the life she wants people to think she did. Mom was always at the studio and well to put it nicely Dad was apparently as cold and hard as Abby is.  Kids learn what they live.
I know the parents got a taste of stardom and wanted their kids to succeed so they stayed and put up with what we saw ever week. But I also do not believe all of what we saw was real. No one would keep putting their children through this.
I do know that Miss Miller getting by with her crimes is sending a horrible message to young girls of today. You do the crime and have the right connections and get by with it. She will never be a role model for young ladies because she can not conduct her own self as a lady.  Thankfully most of the girls did not adapt to her ways of acting.
I hope she is gone from this show. I seriously do. I would love to see Lifetime do a show of the girls who started out and a few of the guest who have been on this show like a dance academy type of show.  I think all of the fans are not ready to say good bye to the girls and if I knew how I would pitch the idea to them to do a scripted show of the girls at a school of the arts. Let Nia and Kendall explore their singing on the show and the others take acting and dancing lessons on the show. Not a competition team but real life of what it is really like to work for your dreams at an early age.  I would not like to see the younger girls be involved or any of the mothers at all.  If the parents are on the show make it once a year for a parents day type show where they put on a show case.  But I don’t see Brynn, Maesi, Ellie or Lilly having any place on this show because these girls are grown now. They will be going out on auditions for real jobs now.  The little ones just don’t fit in with them. And there are better dance schools out there where they can continue to learn and progress.
Anyway to cut this off. I have to wonder has Dance Moms seen the last of Miss Miller or is she just throwing another fit?   Is this the end of the show?  Lifetime send the little ones back to real life. The originals all gave up their lives to be on this show. Don’t do it to the little ones too. Send them home to their family and friends and normal life.
And for Miss Miller? Please sing louder and say its true and you are finished with mistreating children on TV forever.
