The firm and stern instructor of Lifetime's Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller, has caused quite the contention. However, this time, it has nothing to do with the show.
The teacher will be going to prison for 366 days because of her charges. According to a People report, her "bankruptcy fraud and bringing $120,000 worth of Australian currency into the country without reporting it" were the reasons behind Miller's sentence. She was keeping money from the IRS, which is a big no-no. No matter how much fame and fortune she had, the court system was going to punish her. "Miller, who pled guilty, allegedly hid more than $755,000 in other bank accounts," the report continues. Obviously, her large sum is of The Wolf of Wall Street proportions. Even though Jordan Belfort and Miller were charged with similar crimes, she will carry a lighter sentence. However, her sentence was also more complicated. She was also "sentenced to two years of supervised release and fined $40,000 and ordered to pay a $120,000," the report continues. While the real star of Dance Moms pays her debts, the show has been revamped. Viewers will no longer be watching the battles between the moms. Instead, they'll be watching the dancers in their very own television series.
Girl Talk, a platform where the starlets will talk out their issues, is Lifetime's replacement of a show.
Even though Miller has a price to pay, the other reality stars are free of charge, quite literally. However, no matter what happens, life will never be the same again. The Dance Moms cast will have to get used to the grueling changes of their schedules, and they'll have to prioritize what and who's really important. If Miller taught them anything, her lessons have less to do with pliés and backflips, and more to do with the precious value of time. Life's too short to waste. While Miller plans to cherish every second, how will her girls fare?
