Dance Moms’ JoJo Siwa Still Talks to ‘Great Human’ Abby Lee Miller

Abby Lee Miller did a number on the cast of Dance Moms, including the likes of JoJo Siwa. Nevertheless, JoJo seemed to turn out just great. She’s a huge success, and one of the biggest names to come from the series.

JoJo has recently tried entering a new era – her bad girl phase. Of course, the internet’s sort of been clowning on the nature of this transition. Moreover, JoJo seems like a wholesome person, so, most people aren’t buying it. Didn’t a lot of folk have the same to say about the likes of Miley Cyrus?

Still, despite being the subject of recent video essays, at least JoJo is doing okay for herself. One might argue that she’s doing so well in spite of Dance Moms, not because of it. However, JoJo doesn’t see it that way. She seems to be all too grateful for the show and her connections.

JoJo and Abby talk “on a weekly basis”

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, JoJo spoke about her current relationship with Abby. “Abby, honestly, my relationship is great,” she said. “I talk to her on a weekly basis. Great human in my life.” For all their ups and downs, it’s kind of reassuring to see they have a decent relationship now.

But even though JoJo keeps up with some of her old Dance Moms costars, others aren’t so close anymore. For example, Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler. JoJo said she doesn’t “really have” a relationship with them “anymore.” As she put it, “Not a bad thing, not a great thing, we just don’t really communicate.”

She added, “Sure, if we saw each other we would be great friends, but we just don’t see each other.” JoJo further assured fans that there was no bad blood between her and any other Dance Moms alum. She mentioned Nia Sioux in particular. “We’ve always been very friendly with each other. We saw each other at the Super Bowl. Yeah, no bad blood anywhere.”

Dance Moms: The Reunion airs on Lifetime on Wednesday, May 1 at 8 p.m. ET.
