It's that time again to tune into a show where extreme parenting makes you feel much better about your own lack of motivation when it comes to after-school activities. "Dance Moms" is back on Lifetime* for season two as of January 10th, with a new mom and little victim dancer. Jill, a former University of Pittsburgh cheerleader, and her daughter Kendall dance into Abby Lee Miller's studio, and if her feelings about the other moms on the show are any indication -- the sparks fly.
I asked Jill why in the world she would want to subject herself and her daughter to Miller's studio, and she did not even blink. That's a professional for you, ladies and gentlemen. Here's what new "Dance Moms" cast member Jill has to say about all this craziness.
Which other mom have you bonded with the most?
I would have to say that other than Melissa, I have bonded most with Holly rather than Christy and Kelly. Holly is very reasonable and not quick to judge, she thinks things through. I believe Holly and I have this in common.
What did you think of the last season of "Dance Moms"?
I thought the girls were adorable last year. They were all accepting of one another and the hierarchy that Abby placed them in. It seemed that they always tried to make sure they got along. The moms on the other hand were way too intense, always unhappy, and never tried to work as a team.
And you still wanted to be on it?
Yes, I took the opportunity that was given to me and Kendall. I want to see if Abby is everything Abby says she is. I want the best training for Kendall, and I want her and I to be team players.
Are you worried about Kendall going through such intense training?
Kendall is a very smart dancer. I am not as worried about the intense training as I am about the intense atmosphere in which she will be placed.
What are your goals for Kendall?
My goal for Kendall is simple; get her the best dance training I can while she is in her formative years. With great training the sky is the limit.
Are you tuning into Dance Moms tomorrow night?
