It appears Maddie Ziegler isn’t a fan of watching herself living on the dance floor. The 12-year-old reality star had some choice words about “Dance Moms,” the Lifetime reality series that made her famous, while recently promoting Betsey Johnson’s new line for Capezio.
When speaking to Elle.com, Maddie commented on “Dance Moms” and “Pretty Little Liars” sharing the same air time, Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EDT. While Maddie only starred in one episode of “Pretty Little Liars," she said fans should tune into the ABC Family drama instead of Lifetime’s long-running dance competition series she has starred on since 2011.
“Watch ‘Pretty Little Liars,’” Maddie instructed her fans. “It’s definitely a better show.”
And that’s not all. When Johnson revealed she had never watched Maddie on “Dance Moms,” the online magazine reports the young performer told the fashion designer, “don’’t.”
Maddie in such a big fan of “Pretty Little Liars,” she even revealed her desire to revisit the show. “Hopefully I’ll get to go back on the show because it’s my favorite,” she said. “I don’t even care if I’m an extra, I just want to go back! I watch it religiously.”
As for who she wants to play, Maddie, who portrayed the role of a young, obviously disturbed, girl dancing inside lead Spencer’s (Troian Bellisario) head in the show’s June 30 episode, said she’s dying to be cast as the series’ mysterious villain. “I want tone ‘A.’ That would be so sick,” she said.

While it remains to be seen if Maddie will return to the ABC Family series, it’s also unknown if she will come back for another season of “Dance Moms.” After her coach and co-star Abby Lee Miller revealed she had not yet signed on for a potential sixth season of the program, Maddie shared similar news last month.
“We just finished filming Season 5,” she told MTV Australia. “I’m not sure what’s going to happen for Season 6. I don’t know if I’m going to do it or not, so it just depends.”
In the meantime, fans can watch Maddie perform Tuesday nights on “Dance Moms." The upcoming Season 5 episode will show Maddie and her teammates competing in Arizona during their weekly dance competition.
