  1. You are my spirit animal. #amen to every last thing you said.
  2. Alex got cut going into her 3rd year too.
  3. Hester saying from the outset that she is not a team player does not excuse her from being a team player. The team challenges are obviously designed to create drama but to also see which designers can collaborate without losing their individual point of views. She was horrible and is fortunate that Frankie’s team was so much worse. I also did not understand the team with the night shift and wraparound comforter. They were also lucky two other teams sucked more.
  4. Omg. I’m Team Lucy but the rest of this annoying mess is the reality tv equivalent of
  5. My senior citizen puppy (see cute picture!) is the sweetest, most laid back, zen dog you can find. Tonight, my upstairs neighbor and her toddler son met us in the hallway. We told him to be gentle, but he went to grab her tail. Fortunately, his mother scooped him up before his hand made contact with my dog. If he did pull her tail, my dog who would NEVER bite would probably have instinctively snapped at the tiny creature hurting her. And rightfully so Dotit claims that two separate dogs hurt her children. I’m sorry. Fool me once. One puppy not suited for a household, ok. But two? The dogs are not the poorly trained creatures; the humans are. And she damn well knew it. My bet is that the dog piddled on her rented floors and she realized it was more work than she wanted. Then PK scratches his nose for evidence. Liars. That’s all I see in them.
  6. Exactly. My friend needs to have public acknowledgement of problems on social media. That isn't how I like to offer condolences, but I will respond the way I know she wants. Another friend hates flowers so I don't send them. Erika knew. And I think her defensiveness was over the top as well. But I still think LVP was just looking for an "issue" that would be easily glossed over -- not expecting a blow up over something that could have been solved with just a quick, Wow - I didn't know you would read it that way. Sorry.
  7. I wonder....Lisa R was forcing everyone to air grievances (and I didn’t even see a Festivus pole!). She clearly was gunning for a blowup of LVP on Dorit. Lisa VP was clearly not going to bring it up again and had asked for the topic to be shut down every time someone brought it up. I may be alone on this but I think the condolence card complaint was a desperate reach to come up with something minor that had NOTHING to do with the dog. IMHO she picked Erica as a target bc Erica was the least likely to get emotional. And it obviously misfired bc E is all about her “reputation.” I think LVP expected it to be a short, “I didn’t know what else to do” or a perfunctory apology for not calling and the spotlight would be off of her. I didn’t mind Rinna in the past, but I do now And I’m disgusted that Kyle had such an authentically poignant moment with LVP opening up to her and just made a joke ...and then comforted Doridiot instead of supporting Lisa
  8. If they took a pic of PigK’s nose, they would have documented pictures of injuries to the kids. I don’t trust their perspective of anything. The buglary, IMHO, is part of theRH euphemisms (“away” or “camp” = prison; burglary = repo). They strike me as the type of people who want cute little dogs because how-hard-could-these-cuties-possibly-be? And then learn it is work to train and socialize a new pup...into a home with two toddlers. Giving up one pup didn’t make it easier. And they knew LVP would be irked if they returned a second. I. Hateeeeeeee. Humans who treat animals like an accessory that they can “return” when they realize the animals need attention and time. I just don’t buy what they are selling. Con artists are lying liars that lie. And that describes that couple to me.
  9. Where the heck what was promised in the preview. I get editing monkeys are at work, but they suggested an entire storyline that didn’t come close to happening.
  10. Victoria was completely different, even at rehearsals, for both nights. My conspiracy theory radar tells me she was (or TK was) warned that VK was on the chopping block and if there was any mistake, she was getting cut. She was less giddy when receiving corrections and was somber in all of the moments filmed when the girls were interacting with group leaders. I also think she was prepared to give a mature, more polished response to being cut because there is no way she went from silly over-the-top VK to that mature young woman in the office. That A++ speech was pte-scripted. She was probably hoping they called her in to say she was improving or the tears would have started as soon as she sat down. Kelli calling her courageous. Really? And there have been many 18 year olds who handled themselves beautifully...and without demanding constant talking-head time. Kinzie comes to mind. If she comes back....who am I kidding? WHEN she comes back, CMT better treat her like Brennan, under the radar. I canNOT deal with another season of the DCC MTT VK show. ?
  11. She was finally allowed to criticize VK? ??‍♀️?
  12. God bless. Power to you and stay strong. You’re an inspiration.
  13. Thank you; morning coffee hasn't kicked in. Projection is what I meant. But there is a difference between staying quiet and reserved and being almost completely inaudible when someone is speaking with you. DCC is supposed to project confidence. I just thought that from being in pageants, she would see any time on camera as the "this is a very long interview from hell" and keep her voice up a little. I don't dislike her and she is obviously insanely beautiful. I just have seen this voice pattern from her several times and Kelli has been critical of other girls who were soft spoken in the past (S7: Megan and Emily; Kitty with Katherine in S4; and that incredibly nervous girl who was first cut a few years ago).
  14. I think Vivian, despite her talking heads, was in a "I'm in" mentality. She was messing up dances she should have mastered the previous year and her power was inconsistent. I HATE at the moment of being cut when girls say "I will be even more powerful!" when they have had time to show it. In fairness to her, going back to the can-she-jumpsplit debate in Kelli's office, I do get where she was coming from. She needed to be pushed out of the plane to prove to herself that she could do it and her injury was healed. She tried to articulate it, but she came across glib even if that wasn't her intention. I have no insider knowledge (damn!) but I wonder if she was somewhat "toxic" in the locker room. I think of Vivian a lot when watching Victoria, thinking to that meeting in the office with Sydney when Vivian asked if it's ok to be fun; Judy said that [I'm paraphrasing a little} that it was find to be fun and cute with Vivian's cute personality but not to be a rookie who is loud, obnoxious, and wanting to be the center of attention. VK should reflect on this.
  15. Apologizing and admitting in advance that the past two weeks have kept me from keeping on top of the forum -- so if I repeat anyone's sentiments, I am so sorry. Last year, Tina K called out Stephanie (and I think another vet) for weight saying that because she struggled with weight during her tenure at DCC, she was sensitive to it. Has she gone blind? The preview is intense. Jinelle looks on the verge of tearing up while Victoria's stare could cut glass. As someone who has struggled with weight my entire adolescent, adult, and now into senior life, I would probably feel uncomfortable getting help from someone who is soooo thin. I MIGHT have some empathy for VK if there weren't a group of 20+ other vets to seek help from in addition to Jinelle. You canNOT tell me that if she went to any of the vets who have had some struggles (like KaShara) they would not be willing to offer tips and advice while the healthy eating mentor appointed by your bosses serves as a nutritionist. I know some were posting about why VK just wasn't sent to the nutritionist. I think it is the same reason Melissa Mentor has some value -- she's been there. And not just about how "unforgiving" the uniform is. She knows about the highs and lows of social media; the long rehearsals and trying to eat sensibly while also just trying finding time to eat; working out through exhaustion; seeking comfort in food, etc. Victoria's mask came off in that preview. Whether she was told she was going to get in or not, whether she was expecting a certain edit or not -- she has a mirror. I don't know how she could stand in a locker room or studio that is lined with mirrors and not physically see that even if she were to make the team, she would be the laughing stock of social media. Megan C was unmercifully bashed in her final season, still photos were turned into memes and jokes. SOOO much criticism of superstar dancers like Melissa, Amy T, and even Holly when they softened up at all. Anyone so immersed in DCC culture as TK and VK are MUST know this. And how was this not brought up at uniform fittings? So many questions. On a non-VK note, how could a former Miss America runner up be so inaudibly soft spoken? Isn't articulation part of the eval? I liked Madeline (rookie) last year -- but I thought I heard even then that she had the tendency to be a mean girl. Kitty's comment last week was not surprising based on that. But moving a locker seems very unusual. I have to go back through many pages of forum to see if anyone has insight into that.
  16. I’ve already booked a suite. Join me! I’ll have s’mores and wine. Rewatching the last episode. I’m surprised how not graceful soooo many vets looked including Maddy. AndLacey was not the superstar I expected in that. Is lyrical very different from contemporary? I need my dance tutors to help me with this. I was pleasantly impressed by Savvy in Travis’s style. Her extensions and movements were beautiful. Just not AS good as Kelli and Gina.
  17. I agree. Kids get overstimulated and overly hammy when cameras are on. They want to perform too. And I don’t think Gina’s kids are any worse than Teresa on NJ. Her hellions were savage as young ins. I remember them tearing apart a boutique and Teresa just leaving the mess as if she didn’t even see it. Kelly and Shannon’s scene as S was prepping her to talk to Steve was hilarious to me. I had this image in my head of a Cro Magnon woman released from ice and having no idea how to behave in society and Shannon trying to teach her how to behave civilly and like a human. And now I have this cave woman Kelly visual in my head that won’t go away.
  18. I broke both feet a few years ago (natural grace I have) and had to rent a scooter. The rental is several hundred dollars. But I smh when I see these two. I REFUSED to be seen in public on it. It is bulky and if you are trying to navigate a store aisle or elevator with it, it is so inconvenient to other people. Not my style. I used it around the apartment and that’s it. But to rent one or BUY ONE ?!?! for a sprain so small you didn’t even see a fake doctor? Wow.
  19. We don’t know if she did though....so much of those conversations are edited and we only see what CMT allows us to see. I posted before I read this. #amen
  20. We also have seen some suggestions we have discussed come to fruition: the new where are they now, the re-emerge of the vets learning the audition dance, the behind the scenes with the vets, and the attrition (see what I did there) of the Jay and Melissa segments. Thank you. I’ll try that again. Sigh.
  21. I am so frustrated that I am not able to see these Instagram pix. And I made sure my app was open. ???
  22. Wow. I missed her then. I thought she didn’t come back. I liked her dancing style.
