Dance Moms- Asia

During Series 3 of  the reality TV show Dance Moms a girl called Asia and her mother Kristie joined the Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC). Asia (full name Asia Monet Ray) was a contestant on ALDC owner and dance teacher Abby's other show Abby's Ultimate Dance Contest. She did well while part of the group but she and Kristie left at the end of the series.

Asia now has her own TV series Raising Asia which is about Asia's dancing and singing career and also features her mum Kristie, her dad Shawn and her little sister Bella Blu.  It hasn't been on yet in the UK but I'll look out for it. Here's the Lifetime US page for the show: http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/raising-asia/

I think Asia was one of the best dancers on the show, especially for her age. She's 9 now and must have been 7 or 8 while on Dance Moms. She has a strong stage presences and dances like a much older girl.


Here's Asia's solo Rock That from Dance Moms.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here: https://starsparklex.blogspot.com/2018/09/unexpected.html

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here; https://www.instagram.com/p/BpzfLAjg8ek/

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme: https://starcasm.net/unexpected-producers-casting-pregnant-teens-from-same-high-school-or-tap-program-for-new-reality-series/

Unexpected

23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.


S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).
