Dance Moms: The ALDC Moms Strike Back (Season 4 Flashback) | Lifetime

ABBY LEE: Are you
on the outside? Kendell, are you on the outside? Kendall, I keep telling
everybody you’re improving, you legs were straight,
you were doing this, you were doing that. For two weeks you
were like fabulous, right up there with Maddie. You had it in you to be
the favorite for two weeks, and that’s it?
What gives, kid? Maddie’s done it over 100 weeks. Why can’t you all just rise to
the occasion and be like her? Figure it out. Abby is really, really
mean and rude sometimes. If something doesn’t go her
way, she’s going to be ah. It just depends on the
day and what her mood is. The kids are
defeated every time they are compared to Maddie. That doesn’t make them
work harder anymore. It makes them angry and feel
like, why bother trying? I think we’ve said over and
over it’s that inequity in how Abby focuses on Chloe, Nia,
Kendal as far as the things that they do–
– Oh, negatively. Negative. And tends to say really positive
things about primarily Maddie. I think it would be kind
of interesting to do just to do a quantitative
analysis and kind of mark– – Like a chart?
– You know, Hall, let’s do it. So let’s listen to
Abby and see how many times she puts everybody down. Are we drinking every
time she puts somebody down? Because we’ll be drunk. ABBY LEE: Relieve. Get up in that relieve,
that lazy relieve. Quit practicing it wrong. All right, I’ll start
keeping track on my phone. ABBY LEE: Don’t just
sit there and slouch. That ticks me off. So far right now, Kendall
is leading the pack with six. Chloe and Nia are tied at four. And there have been
seven Maddie praises. Only one Mackenzie. Nia, I’m not going
to get on your case. It is not worth my energy. You are not worth my energy. That is so wrong. She said, how many in
less than five minutes? Know why you are
getting that reaction? Because we’ve never
added them up. You see them in black
and white, you’re like, this is ridiculous. All you have to do is
look down in that room, and it’s written all
over those girls’ faces. I mean they’re trapped
in a windowless room with a hungry beast
who does nothing but scream at them all day. While she praises one. But when you sit
down and you count it, and you’re like, when
is enough is enough? – And I lay that there–
– Yeah. Palm of my fingers. The circus is in town. [sings circus theme] Oh, the circus is here. And look, look what we did. Oh, my god. Why don’t you guys be a
little indiscreet about that. We need the tallies. We’ve been telling
Abby for years the inequities of
how she treats Maddie and how she treats
the other girls. Nia had six. Five, six. Yesterday we kept a
tally on Christy’s phone. And today we’re going
to put it in writing. Why isn’t Maddie on there? Because she didn’t
have any negatives. She had eight praises. I thought she had a negative. No. Once, again, the moms
are singling Maddie out. Her name is not
even on the board. And I really don’t think it’s
appropriate for the girls to see us putting little
tic marks by their names. ABBY LEE: What is that
big sign up there? What is that? I don’t know. They brought it up there
in the middle of rehearsal. And Maddie said, oh,
my name’s not on there. Not solos. ABBY LEE: How many times she
cried and ran out of the room and acted like an idiot? Yeah. ABBY LEE: No. Mackenzie would be higher. No, Mackenzie
would be winning. Oh, she’s asking the
kids what this board is. As far as I know,
they don’t know. Oh, Chloe said take it down. Yeah.
Yeah. Because I agree. What is everyone
so upset about? Like I don’t get it. It’s no different from what
we did yesterday on the phone. So it’s a little
bit more visible. OK, we’re making her
behavior visible to all. If she stands behind
her behavior, then what difference does it make? Why would it change anything? I don’t see the
big deal about it. It’s an observable. ABBY LEE: Aren’t you glad
you’re not on that list? I don’t even know what it is? ABBY LEE: Yeah, me too. I don’t know. But whoever wasted the time
it took to make those letters, and to go buy that
board, should’ve spent that same amount
of time on putting a brain in there kid’s
head and figuring out why they are not the big winner. Better use of time.

  1. Imagine if Melissa was the one writing the letters on the board______ooooo that means abbey said for Melissa to put a brain in muddies head😮 *maddie's

  2. I don't why Melissa was so upset that Maddie wasn't on there. Is she saying she doesn't want Maddie to be praised because she got 9 praises, that would make me happy as a parent.

  3. “You are not worth my energy.” If I was Holly I would instantly take my child out, IMAGING HER SELF-ESTEEM.

  4. Awe boo hoo Maddie isn’t part of a research project on how many times Abby puts her down… get over yourself Melissa

  5. No one is going listening to you Abby👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👿👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎 no one will

  6. They should have turned it around instead of letting the girls seeing it it’s a good idea but it did distract the girls

  7. Wait, doesn't Holly have a PHD? I don't even have a diploma, but I can see how abusive Abby is. Why do these grown women need to see Abby's insults/abuse in black and white, 02:04?

  8. I’m glad I was not one of those dancers, cause my mom would have been in jail for beating up Abby 😂🤦🏽‍♀️

  9. "why isn't Maddie's name on their?"

    You shouldn't heard them talking about it the other day, it's how many times people get correction and obviously Maddie's name isn't on their cuz she's the perfect student (no hate to Madi)

    Edit: Maddie* I have a friend called Madi so it's confusing 😂

  10. Some of what they said is harsh, but also there’s a difference between corrective criticism and just being mean. I don’t think all of those tally’s were Abby being mean. The comment about Mackenzie was wrong, but at the end of the day she is there dance teacher. It’s her job to correct.

  11. Maddie doesn’t need a spot on the board because she never gets yelled at duhhhhhhhh

    Surprise surprise😛😛

  12. Christie:Are we drinking every time she puts somebody down cause we’ll be drunk

    Abby:You moms already are drunk

  13. “Once again the moms are not including Maddie” Excluding her from what not getting a negative comment

  14. honestly I feel bad for Maddie sometimes because her teammates are constantly compared to her and even tho she gets more praises the moms acts like it’s her fault that she’s the favorite

  15. There`s clearly a space down the bottom where they can put Maddie`s name is she did get an insult but she doesn`t and of course Abby and Mellissa think it is an insult and that everyone is jealous of Maddie.

  16. Honestly Abby and Giana should be adults for once. Who's job is to bring kids down only for money? Honestly I can't believe any of those girls except Maddie left that studio. Chloe, Mackenzie, Nia, and Kendall don't deserve to be screamed at all day when they work so hard to please a person and all they get is "I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR YOU". Honestly I'm done with these 'adults' that yell constantly at the girls

  17. Kendall it's true I be seeing your videos it is funny how some things you are such a great performer and have great technique and a beautiful body to give it off with that and sometime I don't know if they choreography you be given it's too much for you or what but you're being collecting the same techniques you use the week before made you win why is this

  18. Excuse Gil Smith Jill the look for excuse do rescues your daughter from the rain better Abby is only doing this super Scandal to the next level because she knows candle can do it. It's Kevin. Don't tell me what may be compared to Maddie please girl has her to step up to the next level because you and I know she can do it there is something that is keeping her from making it she only know what is it but I believe every stage to her and get us her Let It Go Wale stuff in her to get to the next level

  19. Abby I can't believe the way you sweetie Mia you just hurt her so much let's do worse measure them and if you want her to get ahead in life with dancing please used expression that will help her emotionally to do so

  20. Oh god I feel terrible for these kids omg

    Edit: They all should’ve left Maddie with Abby in the studio by themselves and go to another and better studio. Like I all have each other’s phone numbers it’s not like ur still not gonna be close or friends u could’ve probably all went together but without Maddie since she already has a dancer teacher that improves her dancing!😠 No hate or neglecting Maddie just saying it’s just unfair for these kids

  21. I don’t understand why Melissa is mad that Maddie’s name is not on that board. If anything, she should be grateful it’s not on the board.

  22. Nia is such a sweet girl I hope she’s doing so much better now and actually she is she was on bold and beautiful on broadway and just her personality shines through

  23. You know the drill
    2.Jill (Kendall)
    3.Holly (Nia)
    4.Lesly (Payton)
    5.Melissa (Maddie and Mackenzie)
    6.Kelly (Brooke and Paige)
    8.Jessalynn (Jojo)
    9.ABBY (FOOD)

  24. Abby and Gia are so rude towards anybody who isn't Maddie! Cut the girls some slack! Abby only cares about credit and fame and nothing else

  25. They literally gave a tick for everything abby said to the girls, even if it was constructive criticism

  26. Why does everyone hate Maddie it's not like she likes that everyone hates her it that everyone is compared to her

  27. Jeez like your not worth my energy and if you tell me to be like Maddie I be like I’m not Maddie and will never be her and thank god I am not her cuz I don’t wanna be and i would be with you by first and Melissa quit saying they are singling her out like for the lux video you always brag about her

  28. I agree with Melissa and the other moms because it is not appropriate for the girls to have seen tallys next to their names and it is distracting but I also agree with the other moms because they are finagling making Abby’s behavior noticeable.

  29. Wow these mothers are pathetic
    I get their point…but do they not understand how that makes their children feel?… sad

  30. 🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋

  31. 🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫

  32. If you watched DM last week you will see how all the moms rallied around Sarah. And honestly I feel like that’s all Holly and Christi And even Kelly ever wanted from Mellisa.

  33. These girls are so brave. Like, they were screamed at all day but never fell out of love with dance. I praise them ALL

  34. I just realized that Holly and Christi have never gotten in a fight? Wonder why… Probably because there the only NORMAL MOMS on the team!

  35. No one:
    Literally not one:
    I guarantee no one:
    Dr holly: i think it would be interesting to do a qUaNtiTaTiVe aNaLySiS

  36. This show is fake. The producers really want everyone to adore and love Maddie. And honestly hate everyone else.
