  1. Does anyone know if Jacie will be performing with the Rockettes this year? We will be going to the show in December again. Saw her last year, and would love to see her again if she’s performing and her cast is on the day we have tickets. It’s so fun to watch when someone you recognize is in it. A girl from my hometown is performing this year, can’t wait to see her either.
  2. Then I misunderstood. I read the original most as gender wasn’t determined until 6-8 weeks, which isn’t the case. I don’t believe Lauren had the tissue tested and even said I didn’t think she knew the gender. I was simply stating that gender is determined long before 6-8 weeks. While I absolutely don’t think Lauren had the tissue tested or knew the gender for certain, it is possible that she COULD have.
  3. My husband and I are going through IVF. We have frozen embryos, and because of genetic testing, we know the gender of each. They definitely aren’t 6-8 week old fetuses! I don’t think Lauren KNEW the gender, just stating that gender is definitely determined very, very early on!
  4. I think it’s just a bad shot, because honestly, Tess does too...and she’s anything but chubby!
  5. I realize that it was a pastor speaking, but honestly, what he said was not religious, just uplifting and motivational. I didn’t hear any specific religious undertones at all. I’m sure he could have done that off camera, but what was shown wasn’t exactly “religious”.
  6. I completely agree. I went through the motions and nothing more for over a year after my sister passed away unexpectedly (at 31, leaving behind my 4 year old niece). Some days even now, I feel like that’s all I’m doing and it’s been 3 years. I didn’t function. But I can appreciate a welcome distraction and throwing yourself at something to keep from drowning in your grief. My heart goes out to Shaina.
  7. I did not care for Victoria last season, but I guess I’m in the minority this season because I think she’s shown big improvements. In the stadium tour, I did a double take at first because I didn’t realize it was her. She looked amazing. Is she perfect? No, but none of the girls are. I give her kudos for taking the negative that was last year and turning it around this year. Did she have the staff on her side, sure, but no one can take away the work that she herself has put in. Her body alone is a huge transformation. ordinarily, I would have no problem with Kelli bringing in her pastor or any other motivational speaker at this point in camp to encourage the ladies, but with circumstances as they were, I felt it was inappropriate. Watching it play out, I was putting myself in Shainas shoes. I’ve lost someone very near and dear to me and I’m not the same person I was before. Had I been shaina, I would have mixed feelings of guilt (feeling as though this was done just for me), feelings of shame (as though I wasn’t grieving the way the thought I should, and grief is so very personal), and feelings of being slightly exploited. In the beginning, she looked uncomfortable to me. I know if it were me, I would be doing every thing I could to stay focused on the task at hand, knowing my grief was consuming me. I would be showing up to practice, dancing, and welcoming the brief distraction from my emotions and thoughts. Having someone come in and speak, partly because of my personal tragedy would take my emotions right back to the dark side. I don’t think I would have been able to focus on practice following that. I’m glad she had her coach and team support, but I think Kelli’s attempt to help was a bit misguided and very unhelpful. I get the feeling Lily would be a better dancer once the pressure was off. After last season nd her cut, I would be stressed dancing too. im not sure why “1 good dance in her bag of tricks” was ok for Meredith and Christina, but Lily was told it wouldn’t be enough. Lily has been far more consistent than Meredith...why wasn’t she given the same feedback. Ive never been a Christina fan. She was desperate and full of excuses every year she tried out. And the fake tears/trying to make herself cry was an immediate turn off for me. She earned a little bit more of my respect this week by the way she carried herself. I saw a lot more maturity. She’s still my least favorite though. Lol
  8. I think it’s just a reflection (perhaps from a flash?) on the photo.
  9. Happy for Jackie! Does anyone know if she will still be dancing with the Rockettes this year?
  10. I thought it was confirmed that there were no alternates? Besides, if they have alternates, why do all stars fill in when someone is out? Sorry, that’s speculation I don’t buy. I think Lily spent all of last summer with the team in training camp and they formed actual friendships that didn’t end just because training camp did. Not everything is a conspiracy. 🤷‍♀️
  11. She may have, I don't follow other teams. But even if she did, her dancing is sub-par, at best. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean you do it well. 😉 I don't think her or Malena either one should have made it to finals. 🤷‍♀️
  12. Oh, I agree about Malena. I don’t think she should have gone to finals either. But I also don’t think Madi should. Without a LOT of technique classes, she’s just not trained enough to get there. If I’m remembering correctly, didn’t she start dance really late? She remembered the choreography, but she didn’t execute it well, IMO. She stood out in a really bad way to me. There is no way she could dance next to the veterans.
  13. The difference is that Madi really isn’t a very good/strong dancer. Kelli never caught their attention, but she was a rockstar with solid technique. Madi is definitely not.
  14. Everyone likes different girls! And that’s great! I wasn’t a fan of Kalyssas from day 1, but it was mostly because I think she lacked technique. I’m rooting for Kat. I just couldn’t get past the comparison of them tonight, but I’m very open minded with her!
  15. I think the choice is in HOW they share, which will differ wildly from person to person, famous or not. Because they are in the public eye, I think it would be awfully hard to not acknowledge the loss in some way when it will be obvious she is no longer pregnant. That being said, for anyone that posts even semi-regularly and has acknowledged a pregnancy on social media, I think the same would be true. If you have announced you were pregnant, had an obvious bump, and suddenly no longer do, you can choose to not say anything, but by doing so, you are allowing others to speculate what went wrong. For some, that’s ok. They don’t mind. For others, they want to control the narrative. They want the truth out before rumors start or questions are asked. I don’t think this is exclusive to public figures or celebrities. It’s true of anyone with a semi active social media presence. Exactly.
