We already know that things weren't always great for Maddie Ziegler on Dance Moms.
The show was dramatic AF, so naturally it would have taken some sort of toll on the young dancer, but she hasn't really said anything bad about the show since leaving, other than being a little relieved.
While playing a game of word association with Raw and her Book of Henry co-star Jaeden Lieberher, Maddie was asked a series of questions, responding to how she felt about each one.
Jaeden asked "dance," which Maddie described as "amazing." But when asked about Dance Moms, all Maddie had to say was "the worst."\
B U R N!
Maddie does have some good memories from the show, she recently told Seventeen, that "I am thankful for the experience, and I miss dancing with the girls."
But, with how unproblematic Maddie is, it's not surprising that the show ended up not being for her.
