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.

According to a report from Deadline, Abby will serve her time at a prison in the Los Angeles area and she will be on two years of supervised visitation after that.
After getting indicted on twenty counts of fraud and hiding $755,000 in earnings, Abby also has to pay a $160,000 fine.
Truthfully, she lucked out since she could have been locked up for five years and had to pay five million in fines.
The stress of weekly dance competitions is nothing compared to this. Abby begged for a favorable sentence and even blamed her Dance Moms fame for her poor judgment- which doesn’t even sound like an actual excuse to me.
I’m sure that all of the dance studio owners who competed against Abby and the mothers who had issues with her over the years are reveling in her demise. Unfortunately for Abby it really doesn’t seem like she has anything or anyone left these days.
