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. Ashlee Allen is by no means the only offender — pretty much everybody except original moms Melissa Gisoni and Holly Frazier has made a habit of criticizing the show’s dancers, either behind their backs or directly to their faces. This is simply not OK.
