A fight between dance mom Holly Frazier and coach Abby Lee Miller is scheduled to occur on Tuesday’s Season 5 episode of “Dance Moms,” and according to a sneak peek of episode 6, Abby’s student will not take the argument lightly. In a preview of the installment “Nia Risks It All,” Holly’s daughter, Nia, confides in a new teacher, Danity Kane singer Aubrey O’Day.
In the clip, the 14-year-old dancer expresses her concerns about Abby’s infamous behavior to O’Day while in a recording studio. “Abby got a little crazy yesterday and it wasn’t pretty,” Nia says. She also reveals that Abby isn’t pleased she has decided to pursue her musical career without her assistance, unlike her fellow teammates.
“I want you to understand this is an extreme amount of drama, but I strongly believe that you have to do what’s right for you,” O’Day says, telling the ALDC performer to “shake the drama off” as Holly looks on smiling. “You shouldn’t have to feel so much weight when you want to fight for other opportunities and right now is your time to have these opportunities."
Holly, who is fresh off of a fight with Abby in episode 5, says she is pleased about the support O'Day has given to Nia. “She put us in touch with her people, in the last two days she has been working with a songwriter. Nia has an idea for an uplifting and inspirational song. We are going to create this song with or without Abby.”
In a second sneak peek of episode 6 on the “Dance Moms” Facebook page, Holly reveals to her fellow dance moms that Nia was absent from class because she was working on her single. “We want to a recording studio yesterday,” Holly says as the other moms cheer. “It was really cool. Aubrey showed up. It was just such an encouraging experience to be surrounded by such positive people who were like, this is team Nia."
Unfortunately for Nia, it appears her absence from dance class will cause her to lose her spot on the junior elite team for this week's competition performance. One “Dance Moms” spoiler site is reporting that Nia did not dance in the ALDC’s contemporary number “War Torn” at Sheer Talent in Los Angeles, California, Nov. 15. You can watch a sneak peek of their group performance here.
While Nia has yet to premiere her single, Holly recently revealed on Twitter that the song is titled “Star in Your Own Life.” Just days after her co-star, Kendall Vertes, 12, shot her music video -- “Wear ‘Em Out” -- with Abby, Nia filmed her debut video with O’Day in Los Angeles Feb. 5.
Episode 6 of “Dance Moms” Season 5 airs Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
