weeks Abby Lee Miller
takes to Instragram to quit Dance Moms and yesterday she did it again with the below post.
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
Does this mean this is the end of the line for the show? While Lifetime has no comment, Entertainment Tonight got an answer from the production company. They said, “The show will continue shooting and the producers hope Abby returns to lead her team.” As of now the show is taping the 4 additional episodes that were ordered today, but the source told ET that the network wants the whole cast back or else. Something that is proving difficult for them because this is not the first time she quit the show, and I doubt it will be the last.
The only way for them to officially get rid of her, is if the Federal Government sends her to jail for Bankruptcy Fraud. The dance teacher reportedly plead guilty late last year and is waiting for her sentencing date.
When it comes to Dance Moms without Abby, I am welcome it. But I don’t think the show will survive without her.
