In a truly terrifying sneak peek of the Dance Moms Season 2 summer premiere (coming in June), dance coach extraordinaire Abby Lee Miller is stunned into silence by one of the Moms, a tiny dancer runs crying into another Mom’s arms, and a fat joke is made. Also? We are ridiculously excited for the return of the Pittsburgh Screams.
Screams are aplenty in this sneak peek, when Abby takes away Paige’s solo because her mom Kelly didn’t put stoppers on the prop chairs when she said she would. Kids getting blamed for their Moms’ mistakes is an everyday occurrence on this show, and so is the Mom screaming at Abby in return. But we’re taken aback by Kelly’s decision to storm into the studio so loudly that another instructor has to tell the other tiny dancers to scamper out the door mid-grand jeté.
Plus, we’ve already expressed our disappointment in the Moms for making Abby Lee fat jokes. It’s kind of like telling someone, “You have terrible acne!” as an insult. Someone’s unfortunate physical characteristic has nothing to do with why you’re angry at them. It’s mean and we don’t like it.
But we do love this show! Check out the sneak peek below.
