‘Raising Asia’ Episode Guide (Aug. 5): Kristie Tries to Pull the Plug on Asia’s Performance

“Diva Days, Red Carpet Nights” (08/05/14; 10:00-10:30PM) – Asia is slated to perform at the Reality TV Awards, but tensions are already running high in the Ray household, and when Kristie isn’t happy with the stage, she tries to pull the plug. Meanwhile, Shawn goes toe-to-toe with Asia’s manager.

“The Education of Asia Ray” (08/05/14; 10:30-11:00PM) – Asia’s training goes into high gear, and with Shawn out of town, Kristie is overwhelmed–until a special visitor arrives to lend a hand. But while Kristie may be happy for the help, she’s less than thrilled by some unsolicited advice–and an attempted intervention.

Child prodigy Asia Monet Ray is no stranger to the spotlight and her loyal fan base eagerly follows her every career move. This summer, Lifetime premieres the all-new docuseries “Raising Asia” featuring the child sensation and her mother Kristie, who won’t let anything get in her daughter’s way. The road to fame and success isn’t an easy one but with her mom by her side, Asia’s dreams of becoming a world famous performer are well within reach, at least if Kristie has her say.

Before ever appearing on “Dance Moms” and placing third on season one of “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,” eight-year-old YouTube sensation Asia Monet had already traveled the world to showcase her singing and dancing talents. In “Raising Asia,” cameras follow the rising star as she strives to take her career to the next level with the help of model mother Kristie, famous record-holding bodybuilder father Shawn and younger sister, Bella Blu, who are there every step of the way to support Asia’s journey to the top.

“Raising Asia” is produced by Collins Avenue, with Jeff Collins (“Dance Moms,” “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition,” “Fly Girls”), Michael Hammond (“Dance Moms,” “Amazing Race”), Sandi Johnson (“Undercover Boss,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition”), Bryan Stinson (“Dance Moms,” “High Society”) and Leola Westbrook (“America’s Next Top Model”) executive producing. Lifetime’s Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Kimberly Chessler also executive produce. 14 half-hour episodes have been ordered for this season.
