Well, it’s official: Abby Lee Miller is headed to prison for fraud. Not only will Abby have to spend a whole year, plus an extra day (because why not?) in prison; but when she gets out, she’ll be stuck with two years of supervision. To be honest, that’s getting off easy for trying to hide $775,000 worth of income when filing bankruptcy, smuggling large sums of money into the country in other people’s baggage…
Do I really need to continue? The only “bankruptcy” Abby Lee Miller ever needed to file for was the moral kind. Too bad no such filing process exists. Besides, everyone who’s ever heard of Abby already knew about that character flaw, anyway.
Meanwhile, I’m still wondering when Abby Miller will get severely punished for her crimes against dance technique.
Alas, I guess failing to break dancers of lazy feet and soft knees doesn’t carry any mandatory sentence. (Unless, of course, you count my constant disdain. Which, apparently, doesn’t count for much. Rude.) At the very least, Abby should have been ousted from any position of “respect” in the dance community, assuming she really had any to begin with, years ago. But that’s none of my business.
Anyway, where were we? Ah, yes. Abby Lee Miller. Fraud. Dance Moms fallout…Good stuff!
The verdict comes not too long after Lifetime announced that they’d be continuing Dance Moms but without Abby as the “star.” While we’re still somewhat “wtf” on the whole Cheryl Burke decision, it’s clear the network and dancers made a smart choice by distancing themselves. And with Abby’s studio up for sale because of more financial dirty dealings, it’ll be interesting to see where the next few episodes of Dance Moms take place.
(Riddle me this: Why is it ok for the “president” to dodge taxes, but it’s not cool for Abby Lee Miller to do it? Things that make you go “hmmm.”)
Here’s hoping the team no longer calls themselves the Abby Lee Dance Company — or, you know, “juniors” — or else they might be considered tax evaders themselves.
As the former dance “teacher” heads to prison, I’ve just got one bit of advice: Save those tears for your prison cell pillow, Abby Lee Miller.
Nobody wants you to be a baby, after all. That’s what you told the kids for all those years, right? Right.1 of 1
