Abby Lee Miller & Maddie Ziegler

Big changes are coming to Dance Moms because Maddie Ziegler is poised to become a big star! Reacting to the news that her protege and most favorite person ever is leaving the show, Abby Lee Miller gushes that she’s “so excited” for the next season because this is what she always had in mind while micromanaging Maddie’s career. 

“I create stars,” Abby crows. “It’s what I do – make these professional, working, employable dancers who can go out and get jobs!” 


According to Abby, it is she who plucks such little dancers from the obscures of Pittsburgh and creates their careers. Little dancers with a dream like Maddie!

I pride myself on that,” Abby says to ET. “I’ve taken so many kids out of Pittsburgh and onto The Great White Way in New York City; out to Los Angeles.” 

Of Maddie’s success, Abby brags, “She’s just another one of those kids that I’ve proven my ‘talent’ with. I’m super proud.” Of herself? Or of Maddie?

At this point I have to ask: Is Abby hijacking on the back of Maddie’s success (which she has worked incredibly hard for); or did Abby cultivate Maddie’s success and give her the opportunity to achieve such success and deserves some credit? Abby certainly has promoted Maddie every chance she could, favoring her over other girls. I also believe many of these girls wouldn’t be in movies or on TV if it weren’t for the exposure from Dance Moms.  

A video of Abby bragging about her own amazingness is below. 

While Abby is celebrating all of Maddie’s successes, she’s seemingly ignoring her own massive financial woes – her bankruptcy trial has been postponed again. And yes, Dance Moms will continue on without Maddie and Mackenzie
