Last night Dance moms went back to it’s roots. Christi Lukasiak and her daughter Chloe returned to Dance Moms, We even saw appearances by the youngest Lukasiak Girl Clara. Only thing missing to make it a new show would be for Dad to make an appearance. I still think this family needs a show all to themselves.
As most of our fans know we were late to the Dance Moms scene. We had to catch up on DVD and reruns. Let me just say that I know why the show got boring for us now. Christi Lukasiak just brings the drama. Her and Jill Vertes together are better than a three ring circus and then Bless Holly Frazier for trying to bring some logic to this show. Give up Holly, it is not there. Nothing logical at all about women screaming “Fame Whore” At anyone, Moms starting fights and then saying “Are you happy now, are you happy, you made my daughter cry” I kinda think that was you mom. You started the fight with opening your mouth. You walked in there with a chip on your shoulder. But then again that is why you are still on the show. Because you and your mouth bring the drama the producers want and make the show interesting.
Last night was pretty funny with the facial affects of Dance Mom Holly Frazier. Sorry Holly but be prepared you just gave the world tons of new memes last night.
Yes Girl you will go down in history for your facial expressions on this show.
Does any one remember this? Wasn’t so long ago the girls were happy to see Chloe. Last night all they wanted to see was the back of her head leaving. Abby lee Miller stated “none of them wanted the Lukasiaks back on the show. They had to tape that scene 8 times to get the result they wanted” One of the dance moms said this is not true and they had remained friends with the Lukasiak through the years. I don’t know a lot about filming but I think if I had been held up for 8 tapings I would be crying too at the end. But of all the moms on this show the one who told us that statement was false we believe.
Last nights show was full of tears and emotions
First Nia has us in tears with talking about how badly Abby treated her, Then we have Kendall crying and that face is just to pretty to ever cry. And Chloe crying just tore me up. “I don’t do chants, I do hands, I want to dance with my family” Yes, baby girl we want you to dance with your family too.
Did they bring Christi back because her and Jill are the only ones who can keep this show funny? I Mean come on this show has been as dry as the Sahara until last night and Jill went to work on Christi.
And the fireworks never stopped all night. You know it was set up. Sorry moms but everyone knows that Chloe could not go back to ALDC as long as there was a chance of Abby walking into her own studio. So the fighting while funny was not believable last night. But it does lead up to wondering what it will be like when Christi joins the team. We already know how some moms feel about it. Hello, Ashlee? Anyone see Ashlee or Brynn? They bailed on the elites and went to the Mini’s. But they were there last night. We did see Brynn professionally licking and chewing on her hot chocolate cup. Someone buy the girl a refill.
The funniest line on the show last night was Christi yelling at new mom whose name we do not even know because, well, she just is not a stand out to us. Christi said Kate Goslin wanted her hair back. Oh Christi you missed it but we do know why you do not like the woman wearing the JoJo Bow Bow every week.
Sorry Mom you picked the wrong hairstyle for this show and while it has not hit the moms yet who you remind them of this might help them some. You maybe should start packing now. Yes Cathy we miss you. But hey look we have a copy cat.
OH MY GAWD!! That’s it!! I knew she reminded me of someone!!
Can we just talk about this lady right here.
Lauriann Gibson is amazing!! Lifetime should have hired her from the beginning. I found it hysterical that she said on twitter she had never watched the show until the moms called her.
Gibson was trained at the prestigious Alvin Ailey Dance Company before becoming a Fly Girl dancer on In Living Color and choreographing the 2003 film Honey (she also played Katrina, Jessica Alba’s dance nemesis).
Lauriann is so kind to the girls and knows exactly what to say to them to build them up. I would love to see her take Nia under her wings and mentor her like Sia has with Maddie. That girl would be a superstar in no time at all with Lauriann in her corner.
Yea, wish I had thought of that about 12 years ago.
Last nights show was fun but not sure I am going to like this new format of them showing 15 minutes of the next show and we don’t see the dances at all. I know, I know, it is dance moms not dance girls but you know we all tune in to see the girls dance so show it.
A lot of the haters are saying that Christi and Chloe back on the show will be the death of the show. I have to disagree and think the producers knew what was happening to the show.
Ratings dropped when the lukasiaks left the show. They fell again when the Zeiglers left the show. Bringing back Chloe and Christi might just breath new life into how many seasons Lifetime wants to milk it for. I don’t think it will be many. Because the girls all are going in different paths now.
Kalani is modeling and has several clothing lines going plus doing some acting, Kendall announced live on Instagram last night she has two movies she is filming, Chloe is doing movies, writing books, has a clothing line she is working on and a web show called Chloe Does it, Nia is acting and doing a lot with her singing now as well as making videos for her you tube channel and making appearances. Nia and Kendall both said in the past 48 hours they are back in school now. Keep in mind the teen years are very stressful and with all these girls have going for them I don’t see how they will have time to do a series. And So many fans say if they only have the mini’s they would not watch because they do not want to start over and get invested in a new team of girls. I love Lilly K but cant stand Yolanda to look at, hear, or see so she would keep me from watching a season with just Mini girls.
And Jill just for the sake of fighting would you please repeat after me:
I AM NOT AN ORIGINAL DANCE MOM
“That’s right girl. You are not an original but I am and I am back bitches”
I have listened for years to my parents and grandparents complain about crappy products and thought Geez get over it already and go buy something else. Now it is my money and I have to say I apologize for those thoughts and yes, I am calling out names By: Dawn V. For Junior Hollywood Reporter
Dear Olive Garden:
When I walk into your restaurant and buy a buy one take one meal I expect to get what I buy. just because I could not finish my pasta in the restaurant that does not mean you can give me a fourth of a bowl to take home. I had breadsticks, salad and appetizer also that is why I could not finish the original bowl. Also I should be able to take one of what I bought not be told oh you cant have angel hair pasta because they are premade so you have to get this big chokeable pasta that is way under cooked and NOT Frozen in the first place so why cant I have what I bought? Also when I dine in I would appreciate it if your staff does not fight right behind my table. I can stay home and eat and listen to people arguing if that is what I enjoyed with my meals. Thanks for leaving me hungry.
My wasted money
Love your Mascara guaranteed not to clump. Is that after I get all the clumps off the brush? Any secrets to how to get it off? explosives are not allowed in my neighborhood.
No Make up days are not for me
Dear Bomb Pop:
Where the heck is my ice pop? Did I unwrap it and say Oh Look how cute a mini pop? No, I opened it, looked at the box for wording that said I bought a mini pop and saw none . This is not a bomb pop it is barely a firecracker. Change the name to mini so those of us that can read will know what we are paying for.
Missing my explosion
Dear Teen Choice.
No, I did not pay for anything but my time and effort to get people the trophy they deserve or surf board what ever. So what’s up with your rules? You suck. You mislead teens and that’s not right. Next year just say oh go vote and give us attention but read the rules. We pick who we want and you don’t count. You stupid teens been falling for this for years now so why change it.
A teen myself
Dear Bottled Tea Makers:
For the love of Tea take that crap off the shelf before it expires. Yes this goes out to the majority of you. I am sick and tired of grabbing an ice cold bottle of tea and taking a big gulp in the summer to gag on spoiled tea. Stop bottling that stuff with shorter life spans than you print on the bottle. Stop shipping it in in air conditioned trucks. Do you know what happens to bottled tea that sits in the heat. IT TURNS TO PUKE TASTE. Stop it!!
I want my tea
Stay tuned more to come. Send me your complaints and I will get them heard.
Teen choice says after 63 million twitter votes winners are announced. Yet their own web site says only votes on TeenChoice.Com count. They even go so far as to say they choose winners from the top four and the producer has the final say. YOUR VOTE COUNTS FOR NOTHING. By Sabrina Culpepper. For Junior Hollywood Reporter.
After 63 million Twitter votes from teens across the country, the winners of the 2017 Teen Choice Awards were announced at University of Southern California’s Galen Center in Los Angeles during a live broadcast on Fox. But for the past few years many fans are calling fowl. Many fandoms are saying that Teen Choice uses them to get advertising on social media while they clearly state on their own website winners are at their own discretion. Why bother to have people vote at all? Same reason any others do. It is free advertising when fans send #TeenChoiceAwards trending with their post.
Last nights teen choice was by far the worst I have ever endured. It was not organized well and the entertainment took over the fact this is an awards show and most of the awards were never shown on air. Leaving fans to follow Teen choice on social media all night to see who won and then still having to search the internet to find answers.
One fandom, Shawn Mendes, were in total shock last night as were the recipients. Shawn Mendes was standing and ready to go on stage when they announced that Jake Paul had won??? What? They had all of the winners sitting to the right of the stage to come up when announced and Shawn was standing there ready to go up. Jake Seemed shocked when he was called and had nothing prepared to say. He was not the only one stunned. Shawn’s face said it all.
Fans were wondering if they made this last minute change because they could not get a host this year and Jake Paul did it at the last minute after a big fall out on Social Media and not really that much of a hot commodity at the time. It all seems odd to us.
Teen Choice states Clearly “Winners of Teen Choice awards were determined through voting on the teen choice awards.com website. The results of the voting were determined electronically by Teen Choice awards.com and confirmed by a committee of Fox Representatives.” Who are these Fox Representatives? Why are fans voting at all if they are not picking the winners by fan votes? My vote is this is our last year following this so called awards show that is not determined by a fan base at all.
Teen choice also states “They have the right to determine the winner from the top four vote getters in each category” No, You do not have that right if you are telling fan bases that their votes count. Count for what? Top four? No, So you get to decide the person who came in fourth wins because they have worked on one of your shows? You also say that no employees of Fox are eligible but that did not stop you from handing the award to one last year.
While fans stay up day and night to monitor and vote like crazy for their favorites and are spamming peoples Instagram and Twitter feeds with votes because Teen choice is telling them this counts as votes their own rules proves that is a lie. Only the top four vote getters on the website are considered and they decide which of those four they want to win. So why do they have fans going crazy on social media voting? Free advertisement that is why.
Then the last sentence is the clincher. “Ultimate choice was determined soley by the producers of teen choice awards” Not the fans who voted for weeks, not the fan base at all, it is ultimately decided by the producers. So I guess the old saying of it is not what you know but who you know is alive and well at Teen Choice awards.
Some fan bases contacted us and those are the fans we are representing here today with this article. Shawn Mendes fans pointed out that he was the winner and Jake Pauls name was called. They told us to rewind and watch so we did that this morning and sure enough Shawn was prepared to go accept the award and Jake was stunned. Was a change made at the last minute? Or was the wrong name called and they let it go to avoid a Steve Harvey minutes on the teen choice awards. We do not know but we agree something went wrong there.
Then there is the created category of Choice Dancer. The first year everyone assumed it was added to hand Maddie Zeigler this award. Maddie was even seated closest the stage but something happened I don’t think Even Teen Choice producers expected. Chloe Lukasiak fans flooded the voting and she won the first ever newly created Choice dancer award. She gave an inspirational speech and won the hearts of millions that night. Then year two rolled around and Fans were saying it was being stacked for Maddie to win. But how could she win. It clearly states employees of Fox can not compete. And at the time Maddie was a guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance on Fox. But win she did. She was working for Fox and won??? So not only do the fans votes not count but Fox can also ignore their own rules.
This year fans of both sides were smart. I mean super smart and I am impressed. We were flooded with graphs, pie charts, statistics, etc of how the voting was going based on the tweets and Instagram post of who was voting for who.
Even Maddie fans were yelling that Chloe fans were stacking the votes But both side agree to one thing. By the fans charts Chloe won it last year and this year also but Teen Choice decided not to allow the fan votes to count. Then there is this.
I have to wonder how these decisions are made when fans on both sides admit that Chloe won by the fan votes but was not given the award by Teen Choice standards.
Why do you want to be a part of something like this? Even the fans were not tweeting and celebrating many of the wins last night because they knew for sure this was not how the fans voted and are sick and tired of being used by others to get attention to their productions and line their pockets when they are not awarding the winners the fans voted for.
You have some saying well Chloe is not even dancing anymore. She is not doing a music video for one person over and over. She is not taking classes and paying to post videos of her dancing in classes. But she is still working on her craft she just does not feel a need to post online her every move of every day because she is entitled to privacy and sees others burning out and chooses not to join them. Plus it does not matter if she never danced. It is supposed to be Teen Choice not Fox Employee committee choice. So if the fans vote for someone that is the winner. Not who Fox has on payroll and will bring attention to the next show they use the person on.
We are neither fans or haters of either girl. Yes we do feel Chloe is a great role model to young girls. We love how she stops and takes photos with fans instead of turn them away and tell them they are not allowed to take pictures of her. Are we fans of her dancing, No, Are we fans of Maddies dancing, No. Actually I guess if we have to fan any girl on the show we would have to say we are fans of Kalani’s and Lilly’s dancing. They both dance with the grace and conviction that Chloe used to dance with. But Chloe is not dancing like she used to anymore so we can’t say we are fans of her dancing.
Some other things that were pointed out was everyone was saying this was the last year for teen choice and we assumed they meant the show. Then they said we will see you next year and we asked out informants why they thought it was the last year and were informed that it is the last year for fans. A whopping number of people say they will no longer support this show because year after year they see the ones that are voted for with charts, graphics, etc to prove who gets the most votes are not awarded for the fans hard work.
So my suggestion to Teen Choice is just have a show, no voting, you invite who you want to hand the surf board to and call it a day because your credibility is seriously in doubt now. Better yet don’t even do the surf board because I understand if you cant make the show you never get your board anyway.
And fans stop spamming accounts with votes that will never count don’t buy into their hype and give them free advertising when they wont even honor your choice.
Check out some YouTube videos for yourself.
But as your look for more information you will find people have been saying for years the awards are rigged. Are they rigged or are you just being duped to drive traffic to a website with your votes. Decide for yourself. Keep fighting it out and having fun because you only get to be a teen and do stupid stuff for four short years of your life. I could care less one way or the other because there was not one act that performed on that show last night I would ever spend a dime on to listen to. My choice and you have yours.

As is often the case another Child star is making headlines not for what they have done but what their parents have done.
Kurt Zeigler filed for Custody of Child stars Maddie and MacKenzie Zeigler stating their mother Melissa Gisoni does not have the girls best interest of her career.
Maddie’s mother fires back that she has been the sole financial supporter of the girls and that their father suffers Mental health issues that keep him from being the better parent. Come on did you expect it not to get nasty?
The father fires back in court papers that the mother is trying to keep the children from him and not abiding by the current custody agreement.
He then claims that Gisoni is “not acting in the children’s best interest with regard to their travel schedule and, possibly, careers.”
The courts decided in favor of the mother.
On June 12, 2017, the court granted Gisoni sole legal and primary custody of Maddie and Mackenzie.
“When the children are in the Murrysville area, father shall have partial custody time with the children,” the filing reads. “Father shall also have partial custody of the children if he travels to Los Angeles.”
The girls are not to have “Overnight” Visits with their father until such time they are “Willing and ready to do so”
Like most Hollywood kids parents fight over control and say it is for the kids but come on using the excuse she does not have their best interest for their careers? OK. Anyone raise your hand that can say Melissa Gisoni is not a first and foremost stage mom? Anyone? Hellooooooooooooooooooo? No, Even the haters say she is a stage mom. She would stab a kid to get hers noticed first so nice try dad that one wont fly.
Mental issues? Well that is harsh to put out there especially since your kids have to live with what ever you say about their dad. And parents need to remember your child is only half of you. The other half comes from that parent you are saying has mental issues. Do not feed the trolls please.
I don’t know why adults can not be civil and make arrangements that work for everyone. Hey dad how about getting on a plane and flying to L.A. to see your girls. Why should they have to fly to PA to see you all the time. Their careers are not in PA. and why now? why do you now care that you think things are objectionable? Where were you when questionable photos were being plastered of your child?
Unfortunately it always happens where a parents realizes darn it my kid is making more money than I will ever make and I need to get custody of them. Well if you are not there to support them, you are not doing the work to get them jobs, you are not making contacts for your children why do you think you have a right to be a part of their fame?
Maddie herself has said in interviews she sees her father at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sorry Dad that is not being a responsible parent. Planes take off from PA and land in L.A. every day of the week. Go see your kids. Rebuild a life with them if they will allow it now. But remember what happened to drive that wedge between you in the first place. Why are your girls not allowed over night visits in your home? Why are they so uncomfortable with you that you “Creeps me out” Sorry Dad you need to mend fences and not look at banks.
Yes, Maddie has done some questionable jobs, So did a lot of kid stars, Not everyone is a Disney kid. MacKenzie does a lot of strange things on social media. What kid doesn’t. The only difference between those girls and any other girl their age is their bank accounts and it seems sometimes fans loose sight of that.
But for parents to use their kids is the lowest thing ever. No parent should want to “Handle” their child because they are famous. If you are not there from the beginning scraping and begging and doing everything humanely possible to make your child a star then stay in the back seat and shut your mouth.
If you honestly think your children are not being raised right call the authorities and have them investigated. A concerned parent says I do not believe my children are being properly supervised, I do not believe my children are living in a good environment. A concerned parents does not say I don’t think their careers are being handled to their best interest.
You jumped off that bandwagon and wanted no part of it. Don’t go after it now.
Hi, It’s Me Sabrina Culpepper for Junior Hollywood News. My new contribution will be Girl Talk at least once a month. We hope you enjoy it.
I have been blessed with having a brother who is 11 months older than me, Yes, I know, I have heard all the jokes already. I was unplanned but still loved, yes you can get pregnant while nursing, Surprise it’s a girl!!
I have decided to share some of the life lessons I have learned by having a brother so close in age. No only is he my older brother but my best friend in the entire world.
I recently asked my brother some questions I want to share his answers with you.
Me: Why do you only start dating someone new during the summer.
Drake: Make up
Me: Excuse me? Make up? what does that have to do with anything.
Drake: Girls have it made. You see a guy and immediately you know he is cute or not. Us guys we see a beautiful girl across the room and have no clue what she really looks like.
Me: Ok what does that have to do with makeup.?
Drake: One of my first dates with someone new is boating, tubing and swimming. If the makeup survives all that she has something serious she is hiding. I want to be able to want to look at someone without make up on and still think they are cute.
Me: That is pretty shallow Drake.
Drake: Not at all. You see some of the cutest girls I have dated really look better without make up on. I love freckles and think they are adorable. Why cover them up? I can see if they have some disfiguring birth mark or big patch of discolored skin wanting to even out the skin tones but I don’t want some one who is going to cost me half my pay check at the cosmetics counter later in life.
Me: What if they refuse to go out on the water with you.?
Drake: Its not a deal breaker but it does limit the dates. I live on the water. I love the water so of course that is where I am going to want someone to want to spend time with me.
Me: What if they make up washes off and they are seriously ugly?
Drake: (Laughs) now who is being shallow
Me: Well you said you want to see them without makeup on.
Drake: I am not sure that is what I said but what I meant was I want to see them in their natural look. I want to be aware of their natural beauty. That includes how they smile, how they laugh, how they make me feel. You know me, what you see is what you get. I want a girl to be the same way with me. Don’t pretend to be a way one day and then in few weeks or months turn into the bride of Chucky.
Me: So you want to see what she looks like without make up so you trick her into going swimming? You want her to make you laugh? Is that about right?
Drake: Looks are not everything sis. She has to have confidence, she has to like herself and not always be putting herself down fishing for compliments, she has to have ambitions and know what she wants to do in her life and she has to be a good person. Looks are the last thing on the list unless she wears tons of make up. That is a deal breaker.
Me: Do you just not like makeup?
Drake: are you trying to be difficult. I never said I did not like makeup. I don’t like it when you can see it standing off the face. I don’t like it caked on and I sure don’t like it when someone puts their head on my shoulder and I have to pretreat my shirt for two hours to get all their make up out.
Me: I see so it is safe to say you are picky.
Drake: I am not picky and you are just being annoying now. Go ask someone else I am done.
Me: I love you
Drake: I will get back to you with my answer later.
We both laugh because that is our standard reply for when one of us annoys the other. I am thinking my brother doesn’t know what he likes. Either you do or you don’t like make up.
I have seen plenty of guys out in public in LA with make up on and have to admit I thought they looked nuts but if that was what they wanted to do then so be it. But make up and females just go hand in hand. It is a right of passage. It is what being a woman is about. You want to look the best you can. Besides what else do teen girls do on boring sleep overs if they don’t do each other’s make up?
The majority of the product reviews will be done by the females on the team simply because it is hard to find that many companies willing to send free products to guys to review. As of now the Majority of what we are going to write reviews for we are buying simply from word of mouth of friends of what to try. By: Sabrina Culpepper for Junior Hollywood Reporter. Special thanks to Dawn for helping me research this product before buying.
Because several of my friends had been using various setting sprays I decided after coming to Florida I had two choices. Either use it myself or go without makeup. Ok I am seventeen. I am not going to walk around in public where I might see someone I know without my make up on.
I did my research and I loved other e.l.f. products I had purchased but what sold me on this one was the statement that “This skin nourishing Makeup Mist and Set Spray is designed to revitalize color and hold your makeup in place. This formula contains aloe, green tea, cucumber, and vitamins A, C, and E to soothe and hydrate the skin.” I mean who doesn’t want all of that right?
I had tried several others so I was a bit discouraged as to what the outcome would be but I have to tell you I am on cloud 9!! Seventh Heaven!! And SOOOOO HAPPY!!! Now it is not the purpose of any of my reviews to trash another company and If I don’t like their product I don’t write about it. Clear and simple.
Yesterday we were all going to an outdoor cookout. The entire JR crew was going. None of us wanted to go. I mean it has rained for a week and in Florida when it rains it becomes a sauna outside. But my motto is always look for good in bad situations. And I found it yesterday.
Some other setting sprays have left my face feeling waxy and I immediately had to practically chisel it off after it dried. Seriously you should see all the make up stuck in my face brush now. It will never come out because it is waxed in.
So all three of us put on our make up and all three of us used different setting sprays. I used e.l.f. Make up Mist and set . Yesssss winner winner. First of all it goes on so light you wonder oh no is this even going to work. It works. It feels great on your skin and not one time did I even think about was my make up running because I did not have that heavy face feeling I get with other sprays. We were outside in the Florida sauna for four hours. My make up never once ran. I never felt uncomfortable with it on my face and I wish they sold it in gallon jugs because it is the only thing I will ever use again.
Um the other two girls were miserable and one of their make up was running every where while the other one said her face felt like it weighed ten pounds. Should I have told her that brand dried feeling like wax? Maybe but I like to let others learn for themselves plus it was funny.
Now here is the great part. This stuff is not expensive. Sure it can be depending on where you buy it but guys Wal mart sells this stuff. Go get you some!!! I bought the 2.02 fl oz bottle just to try it out but will sure be checking the shelf for a larger bottle when I go back. I love this stuff. It has made me one happy shopper and new to Florida the land of the heat girl.
Trust me if this can stand up under Florida weather where it rains every day and then turns into a sauna it can stand up to anything.
Out of a possible ten stars e.l.f. Make up Miss and Set gets ten stars and thank you to those who suggested it to me. It will be my forever product now.
