Abby Lee Miller thinks her sentencing sounds like a movie title
May 10th, 2017 under Dance Moms. [ Comments: none ]

Just hours after Abby Lee Miller was sentenced to one year and one day for bankruptcy fraud, the Dance Moms teacher sat down with Good Morning America. When the reporter asked her if she thinks the sentence is harsh, Miller said, “A year and a day, it sounds like a movie title.” Then she added, “I’m going to pretend I’m in a movie and we’re on set and I’m there for 10 months and that’s the way it’s going to be.” I am sure the wardens and her cell mates are going to love to hear that.

It sounds like she thinks it will be such a cake walk, that she plans on spending her time in federal prison reading, learning Spanish and writing another book. You would think the reality show star would be more grounded in reality, but it doesn’t seem like she is. A reality she will soon face when she enters prison within the next 44 days.

She also says that she plans on spending her time focusing on herself because she says spent her life focusing on other people’s children instead of having her own. Something she has said plenty of times on the show.

When asked if she would do it all over again, she replied, “I would never had filed for bankruptcy ever,” adding, “I do not recommend it.” Maybe not frauding the government and hiding the money would be another way to look at it, but that is me.

I think the harshest form of punishment to give in her prison would be to make her watch Dance Moms with her fellow inmates. Let them critique how cruel she is to the kids and face the harsh reality of how people see her on the reality show. How does that sound?

Finally, I wonder if she reached out to Martha Stewart and asked her for her advice on how to survive in federal prison. Imagine the advice the homemaker could have for her. Although, I can’t see Stewart picking up her call. Can you?


Abby Lee Miller sentenced to one year and one day in prison!

Over a year and a half after Abby Lee Miller was indicted on bankruptcy fraud, she was finally sentenced for her crime today in Pittsburgh. According to Steve Pope, she was sentenced to a federal prison, as close to her new home in Los Angeles, for 1 year and 1 day followed by 2 years of a supervised release. She was also fined $40,000, plus she has to pay a $120,000 judgement.

U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti told Miller told, “It’s important for you to follow the rules just like you have your students do.” Believe it or not when Miller was pleading her case to the judge, the Dance Moms teacher actually said to her, “I wish you could take my class.” Miller also said she wishes she could take her to lunch to explain it all. I am surprised the judge wasn’t tougher on her.

Dance Moms Kelly Hyland and Christi Lukasiak were there to watch Miller’s sentencing. They told The Trib they were not there to support the woman who taught their kids for so many years, instead they were there to support the government. That speaks volumes doesn’t it?

As much as I want to go off on her like she did her students on the Lifetime show, I don’t believe in kicking someone when they are down. How much further down can she be?

On that note, no word if Lifetime filmed her sentencing for Dance Moms. Granted, she abruptly quit the show in March and they wrapped production last month, so probably not. Maybe someday they will make a movie about her life just like they did Britney Spears and Britney Murphy?

Miller will find out within 45 day where her new home will be and then she will need to self report to that federal prison.


Will Dance Moms get a season 8? Depends who you ask.
April 18th, 2017 under Dance Moms. [ Comments: none ]

Dance Moms has been in the news recently and not for the reason they want. First in late March, Abby Lee Miller unexpectedly quit the show and people were thinking it would be over without her. Then a few days later, they hired Dancing with the Stars’ Cheryl Burke to replace her and things were looking up.

That was until this Saturday when Nia Sioux posted some stuff on Social Media alluding to the fact that the show was over for the girls, the moms and her with the dates 2011-2017. She even took to Twitter to say, “Such an emotional day😢” The dancer wasn’t the only one, Kalani Hilliker Tweeted, “Don’t be sad that it’s over be happy it happened.” One of the moms even got into the action when recent returnee Christi Lukasiak said on Instagram, “April 9, 2011/April 15, 2017. I’ve watched this young woman grow up before my very eyes and I had the experience of a lifetime. No one will ever understand how things really happened except the people who lived it, so I am so grateful for everyone who I got to share this with: cast, crew, and family. And for all of you out there who I have never met, but you root for these girls like their your own, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Just a mom of two beautiful blondes, from Pittsburgh.”

Sounds like that is the end of Dance Moms, right? Well Executive Producer Bryan Stinson Tweeted, “That’s a wrap on season 7. 208 hours of Dance Moms programming. Season 7 was heaven. Season 8 will be gr8t #DanceMoms”

Therefore, what is the deal? We don’t know. But Lifetime would be foolish to continue the show without them. Three words why it won’t work, Dance Moms Miami.


Cheryl Burkes shares a Dance Moms photo revealing who stayed!

Last week, Abby Lee Miller abruptly quit Dance Moms again and she was replaced by Dancing with the Stars Cheryl Burke. There were rumors that Ashlee and Brynn also left the show with the dance teacher, but nothing was confirmed.

Over the weekend, the new dance teacher in charge shared some photos of herself with the girls and now we know who left, who stayed and who came back. Brynn is gone, but who cares because her mom and her were unnecessary drama. It also looks like the minis are thankfully gone too.

Kalani, Kendall, Nia and Cam are still part of the Elite team and there is a familiar face with them. In the season finale, Chloe and Christi hinted that they were thinking of coming back and looks like they came back. In fact, it sounds like she did a duet with Nia!

All of sudden, I am liking Dance Moms again. It seems like it will be a lot less drama now that the Drama Queen and her Jesters are gone. The show has felt more scripted than real, and it went from being a guilty pleasure to pure torture to watch. I want the old show back and maybe it will be that way? Or maybe it will be even more scripted and these last 4 episodes will be the last 4 episodes.

How do you feel about all the changes to Dance Moms? Are you happy Abby is gone? Cheryl is in? Brynn and the minis are out? And most importantly Chloe is back!

UPDATE: According to Radar, Brynn and the minis stayed with Abby Lee Dance Company and the other 5 girls went on their own way. Miller is reportedly pitching a reality show with her remaining students, but who wants to watch that? Brynn and the minis are the least interesting members. Plus, what production company is going to want to work with her after all she is rumored to have pulled on Dance Moms? I doubt Lifetime is going to want to her back, so what network will want her new show? But then again you never know. We TV did a show with Mama June and TLC found a way to work with The Duggars, so you anything can happen.


Cheryl Burke is the new Abby Lee Miller on Dance Moms

On Sunday, Abby Lee Miller took to Instagram to announce that she was quitting Dance Moms (again) and it looks like they have already found her replacement. According to Entertainment Tonight, Dancing with the Stars’ Cheryl Burke will take over as the dance teacher for the four additional episodes that Lifetime ordered for this season.

Is this a good idea? Hell to the no. The show already feels more scripted than reality, so having someone who will do any and every reality show is going to make it feel more fake that it already feels. It would be better to let the show die than try to save it because this solution is going to make the dying show even worse than it already it.

I don’t like Abby Lee Miller, but at least she did not start out as a television star. They would be better off going with a no name than a name because then the show is going to be all about the name than the moms and their daughters. That is who it should really be about and not someone who has reality TV experience.

I mean, if they were going to go with a name, I wish they would’ve gone with Debbie Allen who has already be on the show a few times. Even though she is a name, she is also a well know choreographer who has been working as a dance teacher for a long time. We only know of Burke as a choreographer on DWTS and not as a dance teacher. I think that is the most important credential for Miller’s replacement.

What do you think of Cheryl Burke taking over for Abby Lee Miller?
