2013 starts the New Years of television viewing with the third season of the guilty pleasure favorite "Dance Moms." On Jan. 1, OK Magazine spoke to Chloe Lukasiak, the 11-year-old fan-favorite star of the show, about what fans can expect from this season.
Lukasiak told the magazine that she always wanted to be famous, but it was a surprise to see it happen so soon. She has been showcased on the program since it debuted in 2011, where at the age of 9 she impressed the world with her routines.
One of the main controversies from the television show is the pyramid, created by instructor Abby Lee Miller, to show who is the best and who needs to improve. The main complaints are that the pyramid is negative, and Lifetime Network actually created it to give the show more drama.
Out of the 38 weeks the show has aired, Chloe Lukasiak has ranked at the top of the pyramid five times, at the bottom seven times and in the middle the rest of the time. Regardless, she remains one of the most popular dancers as far as viewers are concerned.
Lukasiak said that the pyramid is real, despite the audience debates on that fact, but she said that the harsh words by Abby Lee Miller is not really hard to watch, because she already lived through it and moved on.
"I think we're going to be there the whole time," Chloe said of her and her mom. She then turned her attention to Miller's form of teaching and said "she's worse in real life. I just take the corrections and I block the rest out."
"Dance Moms" returns on Jan. 1 on Lifetime at 9 p.m. EST.
