Abby Lee Miller, the totally evil lady from “Dance Moms,” is quitting the show.
According to Deadline, the choreographer admitted as much on her Instagram, in all caps for some reason. “I will no longer take part in Dance Moms. For the past six years/seven seasons I have asked, begged, and even demanded creative credit… to no avail!”
The majority of children that follow me may be fast asleep, however now is the critical time to make the following statement: I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS. FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING – TO NO AVAIL! TODAY, I WAS SO PROUD THAT I WENT AGAINST THE PRODUCER’S IDEA (ONCE AGAIN) TO ENTER A COMMAND PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUMBERS… “WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?” ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS! I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful! I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT! #dancemoms #season7 #ALDC #aldcalways #newbeginnings #aldcla #alllovedancecourage
Miller, who very clearly has little to no chill, also happens to be less than two months away from a sentence hearing for fraud. She pleaded guilty to various charges of fraud and violating currency reporting laws — whatever that means — in June. She’s facing two years in prison.
This looks like a classic case of deflection to me. Only time will tell: Miller is due for sentencing on May 8.
