Gianna Martello of Dance Moms made an appearance on the 2017 Teen Choice Awards carpet, where she was interviewed by host Dani Golub. Martello revealed some inside scoop on how Abby Lee is handling life behind bars.
“I do keep in contact with her, I have talked to her since everything. She’s good, she’s ok. The competition team is still going under the direction of me.”
The show must go on for the Teen Choice nominated reality show and the dancers seem to be in very good hands with Martello. Though she is excited, there is a lot of pressure to fill the giant shoes of Abby Lee, “I think Dance Moms in general is a lot of pressure on me to perform, but I think I’ve got it from here.”
On working with Maddie Ziegler, Martello reveals her close relationship with the teen sensation, “I actually raised her, I’ve been with her before the show and after the show. It’s just exciting to see how much she’s grown and what she’s doing now. That’s my girl.”
The interview also touched on what it has been like to go from being just a small competition dance team in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to international fame.
