Things are getting heated once again in the studio now that choreographer Laurieann Gibson is back in the driver’s seat for round two on Dance Moms. In a sneak peek from the Aug. 29 episode, the 48-year-old loses her cool after finding out that dancer Camryn Bridges’ mother left her costume at home.
“How do you forget the basketball game day? How do you forget your glove when you’re at the World Series? How on good God’s grace of an Earth did you forget the child’s costume?” Laurieann laments to Camille Bridges. Watch the promo clip below to see the heated exchange!
But Laurieann didn’t let Camryn off the hook either. “Camryn, how did you allow your mother to forget the dress?” she asked. “This is your career, your life. Now, guess what? No dress, no number.” So what does this mean for the Abby Lee Dance Company’s chances at competing? We’re going to have to tune in tonight to find out!
As fans saw last week, the dance team failed to win under the leadership of Laurieann, who has zero experience when it comes to competitions. Instead, she’s used to choreographing for big names such as Lady Gaga and Beyoncé. But the Canadian is just serving as a temporary replacement until Dancing With the Stars alum Cheryl Burke takes over.
It was announced earlier this year that the 33-year-old would be working with the girls on the Lifetime series after Abby Lee Miller was sentenced to one year and one day behind bars for bankruptcy fraud. “I don’t scream or yell — I don’t believe in that,” Cheryl said on The Steve Harvey Show in June. “But don’t get me wrong, I’m still — from people that have seen me on Dancing with the Stars — I am still strict, I’m stern and I expect the best out of my students. But I do it in a way that’s loving and it’s caring, and I try not to intimidate them or traumatize the kids.”
Tune in to Dance Moms at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime!
