Dance Moms was high on drama this time round. From Abby Lee Miller’s legal issues to Maddie Ziegler leaving the show to focus on better things. With all the drama that was left in the middle, fans are eagerly waiting for the renewal of the seventh season of the show. The ratings have shown a huge dip this season and with Maddie Ziegler leaving the show, it is expected to plummet further down.
The series had a huge fan following and it is believed that most of them watched the show because of the Ziegler sisters, Maddie and Mackenzie. With both of them leaving the show along with their mother, Melissa Gisoni, there is a chance that they will make a large chunk of the viewers stop watching Dance Moms from Season 7.
Melissa Gisoni had decided to take her daughters out of Dance Moms since she didn’t think Abby Lee Miller was competent enough to continue teaching her daughters. Abby Lee Miller had been behaving rather oddly in Dance Moms Season 6 since she had to cope with her legal drama and with the drama following Maddie Ziegler’s absence and the arrival of new-comer Brynn Rumfallo.
Abby Lee Miller would frequently fly into a rage and not come in for training sessions and she didn’t want to answer to any of the mothers for the eccentric manner in which she had been behaving lately. While all the mothers had been questioning Abby Lee Miller’s competence, Melissa Gisoni took the decision to make her daughters leave Dance Moms.
Abby Lee Miller didn’t seem to approve this move and had been quite cold and distant with the Ziegler sisters and their mother. However, she had recently been sharing photos of Maddie Ziegler, including one from a competition in Pittsburgh and said that while she wasn’t a part of Dance Moms anymore, she is going to continue participating with ALDC, but not in the elite team.
According to Inquisitr, Abby Lee Miller also hinted at the possibility of collaborating with Maddie Ziegler in another project, which might be aired on television or in the internet. There are rumors that Maddie Ziegler will be back in Dance Moms after she wraps up So You Think You Can Dance. The 13-year-old had a lot of things in her hand and she needed some time off from the show to focus on them.
Maddie Ziegler had moved on from focusing only on her dancing career. She has made a quite a mark in Hollywood and had recently wrapped up the shooting for her first Hollywood venture, Colin Trevorrow’s The Book of Henry.
She is also set to play a role in Sia’s directorial venture, Sisters. This is not all; Maddie Ziegler has gone on to appear in several series and music videos and she is soon going to become the youngest judge in So You Think You Can Dance.
It was an emotional moment on Dance Moms when the sisters said their goodbyes to everyone. Kalani Hilliker did joke about their winning chance increasing with Maddie Ziegler away, but all the girls said that they would miss the two sisters, with whom they have been dancing since a very young age.
Lifetime will air the special instalment of Dance Moms, which will show the young girls bidding goodbye. The reunion episode titled The Girls Say Goodbye will be hosted by Jai Rodriguez.
International Business Times reported that Maddie Ziegler will talk about leaving the show. She says that when the whole team performed for their last tournament together, they realized that the moment was almost there.
