After her indictment in 2015 for attempting to hide $775,000 in income from bankruptcy creditors, Abby Lee Miller was sentenced yesterday to a year and a day in federal prison. This morning she sat down with Good Morning America to talk about the sentencing and what will be next for her post-prison.

What is the next chapter for the former Dance Moms star? “To be a smarter businesswoman. Also, to worry about myself. I have spent so much time and so much energy making other people’s children stars. I didn’t have any children of my own, these were my kids. And I raised them like they were my kids.” When asked if she loved those kids, she tearfully nods and says “I do.”

I can’t say that I’m surprised by this news: former Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison. She is not the first reality star to get in trouble for fraud and weirdly enough I’m sure that she won’t be the last.

I don’t get why anyone would think it’s a good idea to brag about a successful lifestyle on a reality television show when they don’t want to pay taxes or accurately report their earnings- yet it keeps happening.

Cheryl Burke - ALDC & Chloe

Ding-dong the wicked dance teacher is gone! Abby Lee Miller huffed, and she puffed, and she screamed, but she couldn’t blow the Dance Moms franchise down – and the cast is thrilled with her replacement, Cheryl Burke. There’s been a lot of changes on Dance Moms, actually, and now former dancer Chloe Lukasiak is speaking out about her “high-stress and intense” experiences on the show with an inspirational new memoir.

Last month Abby Lee publicly quit the show she helped build, claiming that Lifetime execs and producers refused to give her creative credit for dances she choreographed for the ALDC troupe, featured on the show. In the past Abby has also complained that producers forced her to maintain her bully persona for ratings.

Kristen

I have been watching Vanderpump Rules since the beginning and I can’t believe that I’m at a point where I am waiting for Kristen Doute to come on screen. She has done some questionable things (I won’t recap, but if you are dedicated, you are in the know), but she has moved past that and owned it all. She is the most fun person in the cast and she is the most honest. Love her or hate her, at least she’s speaking truth instead of trying to control image… like some of the other cast members reaching for a story line.

Unfortunately, Kristen‘s truth includes dating James Kennedy, who may or may not have used her to get a spot on this show. She started out the show dating Tom Sandoval, which seems like a lifetime ago…until Kristen shades him or calls him out for something during that time period. Now Kristen is in a stable relationship with Brian Carter, and it seems like Crazy Kristen is no more.

Cheryl-Burke-Dance-Moms

I could never imagine being a dancer or mother on Dance Moms. Aside from not being able to dance and not having a kid, it seems like dealing with Abby Lee Miller would be a lot for any human being to handle.

As a viewer, I live for it every time Abby has a meltdown on screen, but I can see why the actual cast members would be happier now that Cheryl Burke is taking over. It seems like a logical fit since Cheryl is a skilled dancer/dance teacher who has reality TV experience from Dancing With the Stars. I’m curious about how entertaining the show will be since it’s obviously going to be way easier to get along with Cheryl in comparison to Abby.

Abby Lee Miller

Never say never, right? You know how sometimes, late at night, celebrities like to get on social media and rant? Maybe they’ve had a few cocktails. Maybe it was just a long day. Usually these things get deleted before sunrise, but sometimes you wake up and realize you quit your job in an all caps Instagram post! Such is the case with Abby Lee Miller who bid an Internet farewell to the network who made her a star over seven seasons of its hit show Dance Moms.

Alleging manipulation and a lack of artistic integrity, Abby gave the boot to the production team who she claims reveled in her mistreatment. However, amid rumblings that the show will go on without her (with former Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke at the helm), Abby is back tracking…just a little.
