“Natalie danced her a** off. I think it’s unfortunate that this is coming out and taking attention away from what Natalie deserved and got. She’ll tell you, no, she was not on pointe when she did a fouetté. No one’s going to deny that. But she did do every ounce of every one of her dances. [Lane] wasn’t used for everything.

I’m relieved Mariah is due next month, as the enormity of that butterfly is scaring me. [ONTD] Keep reading »
