Disgraced Abby Lee Miller was a hot mess before she began serving her sentence for bankruptcy fraud, the Tuesday night Lifetime special “Dance Moms: Abby Tells All” revealed.
‘The View’s Jedediah Bila interviewed the former “Dance Moms” teacher and reality TV cameras followed Miller in the two weeks before she had to report to prison.
Miller was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison after she plead guilty to not reporting an international monetary transaction and one count of concealing bankruptcy assets.
The special showed that Miller, 50, was desperately afraid of going behind bars.
“If I’m thinking about it every minute, I’m crying my eyes out,” Miller told Bila. But she vowed to make the most of her time before surrendering, saying, “I want to eat the food that I like, swim every day…I’ve got a lot of living to do in the next two weeks.”
Cameras showed the star famed for yelling at her girl dance students visiting her bariatrics doctor Michael Russo after he had removed 80 percent of her stomach in April 2017.
Miller admitted she hadn’t been dieting: “I’ve been eating what I like, what I’m going to miss,” before prison.
Dr. Russo said that was okay and she sighed, “I doubt there’s a salad bar,” behind bars.
