Passionate about dance, Stephanie's love of reality television and celebrity entertainment began with "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance." She has since discovered the wonders of the "Real Housewives," the Kardashia...

Holly Frazier's calming influence is more important than ever on Dance Moms

The ladies of Dance Moms have always been prone to petty drama, but their behavior just gets worse as the show continues. Once off-limits, the dancers are now subject to heavy criticism, and not just about being Abby Lee Miller's favorite. The moms are outright trashing the girls these days, something Christi Lukasiak and Kelly Hyland would never have dreamed of doing.

Lukasiak and Hyland may no longer be on the show, but at least one of the original mothers is still around to enforce the early unwritten code of conduct. After Brynn Rumfallo's mom Ashlee Allen badmouthed Kendall Vertes (and after Vertes talked back to her), fan favorite Holly Frazier got the moms together to talk through the situation. She voiced her concerns regarding the malicious turn the show has taken and how she's worried that the moms' petty behavior is negatively impacting their kids.

As always, Dr. Holly was right. Teens and preteens have to deal with plenty of drama — the last thing they need is to face constant criticism from both their teacher and their friends' mothers.

This is simply not OK.

At one time, viewers could always take solace in knowing that, no matter how crazy their moms were, the dancers could be counted on to behave in a civilized manner. That appears to be changing. Fortunately, there is still one good role model, and she received a lot of praise on Twitter tonight.
Holly Frazier is a very refreshing presence on Dance Moms. She and her daughter may not receive the appreciation they deserve at the ALDC, but viewers have definitely noticed their level-headed behavior and sense of compassion. Sadly, the other moms aren't willing to follow Frazier's example and ease up on the girls, so it's not likely that her wise words are going to have a lasting impact.
