I have two words that will change your life forever: Dance. Moms.
One hot Saturday afternoon this summer, when it was too humid to lay by the pool drinking BudLight Lime (yes, those days really do exist) I sat in my best friend‘s basement, staring out the window. We were bored. We were restless. We were too broke to go to the mall. She turned on the television, switched the channel to Lifetime, and there it was.
Dance. Moms. (Yes, the period is necessary every time).
It’s the perfect combination of Toddlers in Tiaras and Real Housewives. Reality television doesn’t get much better. Maybe it was because of our past experiences as child performers (her as a dancer, me as an actress), or maybe it was the pure hilarity of these INSANE women. Either way, we embarked on a 3-hour marathon and were hooked.
Do yourself a favor. Dance Moms forever.
