Infamous “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller is officially heading off to prison in just a few short weeks.
According to earlier reports, Miller was brought up on bankruptcy fraud charges in 2012 after hiding more than $775,000 in earnings from her creditors. The fiery and often outspoken dance teacher had previously filed for bankruptcy in 2010, citing more than $350,000 in debt.
She was also charged with trying to transport $120,000 into the United States from Australia without declaring it. Miller ultimately pleaded guilty to the charges as part of a plea deal.Image Credit: Screenshot/Facebook
Initially, the Abby Lee Dance Company founder didn’t seemed too worried about spending time behind bars. She told “Good Morning America” in May that she actually felt “relieved” and “peaceful” about the sentencing.
Miller also said that she was planning on writing a book about the whole thing and noted that her sentence length, a year and a day, “sounds like a movie title.”
But now that it’s nearly time to put on a prison jumpsuit, Miller seems a bit more concerned. Earlier this week, she told TMZ:
“It’s so freaking crazy to me. I feel really bad, and I’m sorry for my mistakes. I don’t know, I’m just a nice catholic girl.”
As for her prison preparation, Miller said she’s at a loss. The reality star said she’s unsure how to get ready for the big day, noting that she’ll likely “get a pedicure.”

Miller told TMZ that she plans on dining on some of Red Lobster’s famed cheddar bay biscuits. She was just leaving high-end seafood restaurant Catch when she told reporters:
“If I say Red Lobster coming out of Catch, would that be bad? I think the biscuits, the cheddar biscuits.”
Regardless of what she eats, Miller doesn’t have an easy road ahead.
The “Dance Moms” star will remain on probation for two years once she is released, and is expected to pay roughly $160,000 in fees.
Miller will serve her time at an undisclosed federal facility near Los Angeles.
