    Meh. If it were a real threat Lacey and fam would have wasted no time in actually obtaining the threatened restraining order and suing someone. *shrugs*

    According to Lacey's own account of the incident she behaved like an immature 5 year old, refusing to speak to Lauren and running not only from her but from the show producers to hide in the bathroom and call her family.

    I'm no Lauren fan and have no trouble believing she's a bully, but after reading Lacey's account of the incident I'd probably want to shove her against a wall too.

    The thing I never believed was the producer would hang up on anyone who was reporting allegations of physical abuse - parent or nonparent. I'd think he'd say he was getting back to her, and he'd consult his lawyers and security staff who would have advised them to talk to these alleged witnesses etc. And why hire Lauren back as an all star if this occurred - she has been a favorite, but I doubt they would have considered her if they found Lacey's story credible.

    But if a work or school dispute really does turn physical, I disagree with all of you that you shouldn't tell your family and your supervisor no matter how old you are. We have had both a workplace dispute murder that arose out of verbal disagreements (14 shot, 6 plus the shooter killed) and a domestic dispute murder (killer and victim were a married employee and contractor) at my company, and threats should be reported and investigated. In both cases, everyone said "why didn't anyone say something. We didn't think he was that upset. We thought he was the nicest guy."
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I didn't realize that when I wrote the post you quoted. (I'm totally out of the loop; I hadn't even heard of any conflict between Lacey and Lauren.) Physical assualt is a totally different thing from your standard college student disputes.

    I do think that they would hire Lauren back even if they thought she was a very obnoxious person. But that's different from hiring someone they think is a physical threat. Though I do wonder what the SYTYCD producers had heard about that choreographer who has been arrested for rape.

    What evidence has there EVER been, outside of Lacey's version of the story, to indicate that Lauren is a bully???

    Don't like her dancing. Fine. Don't like the so called favoritism by the judges. Fine. But I don't see any evidence that she's anything but a nice person.

    I had written my initial post before seeing that there was an allegation of a physical confrontation. But while I agree that anyone who is harassed on the job (physically or not) should report it to their supervisor, friends, family, whatever, and in school to a teacher, advisor, and yes to friends and family, the only time I can see having a parent come in and try to intervene would be if it was a minor child and the school was not taking steps against the perpetrator, or a mentally disabled adult in a workplace situation. Other than that, the parent is being part of the problem, not the solution.

    And he posted a post-surgery photo on Facebook. Don't ask me how/why I know that.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Considering her coloring, it's not a bad idea when going to certain auditions. Dancers are often encouraged to heighten certain "ethnic" looks at auditions, particularly for gigs like Disney and music videos.
