“Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller will trade in her signature glam style for an orange jumpsuit in just a few weeks when she heads to a California prison to serve out her sentence for fraud.
The Abby Lee Dance Company founder was sentenced to a year and a day behind bars after she pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud charges filed in 2012.
Miller was charged after hiding more than $775,000 in earnings from her creditors, according to earlier reports. However, she has expressed little remorse for her actions in recent months.Screenshot/Facebook
In an interview with “Good Morning America,” Miller said that she felt “relieved” and “peaceful” about the sentence and planned to use her time behind bars as source material for her latest book.
Miller also said that she would “pretend [she’s] shooting a movie” during her sentence, which will likely be served in a federal facility near Los Angeles.
But now, a new teaser from Miller’s final season on the hit show “Dance Moms” seems to show a more remorseful side of the reality star.
According to People, the 51-year-old teared up as she said her dramatic goodbye to a number of her dance students featured on the popular Lifetime series. Miller said:
“I created livelihoods for so many children. It was all going to end someday.”
The 51-year-old also seemed to open up her mistakes and express remorse for her actions. She tearfully told the camera:
“I regret it. I regret it. Oh, I regret everything.”
In the explosive new clip, one of the infamous dance moms got into a heated argument with Miller and told the reality star that none of the dancers “want to work with [her].” Miller emotionally responded:
“It was like five years of my life and someone just s*** on me.”
It’s unclear when, exactly, Miller will officially begin her time behind bars, but she’s spending some time prepping for the big day.
Last week, the “Dance Moms” star said she would get a pedicure and grab some cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster before heading to the slammer.
Rumor has it that “Dancing With the Stars” alumna Cheryl Burke will take over for Miller on “Dance Moms” while she serves her time.
