I didn't find Asia bratty at all to be honest...she was confident, and she was a ham, but she always seemed nice to the other girls and humble to the judges.
Her mom on the other hand...sometimes I wasn't a fan of her, but then again that blonde lady she always fought with seemed pretty horrible, I may have been flipping out all the time too if I was in that position.
I just saw a commercial - Dance Moms marathon on New Years Day and then the new episode!!! Awesome, I thought it was just the new episode. Get me some wine, some snacks, and fuzzy blanket to curl up in and I think I know where I'm spending part of my New Years haha.
