One thing is for sure: it sucks to be Abby Lee Miller.
As we reported, on Monday, the Dance Moms star was sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud. Back in 2015, the choreographer was accused of hiding $775,000 of income in a secret bank account while filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
On Tuesday, the reality TV personality broke her silence to ET Online, and she is surprisingly zen about her predicament. She says:
“I feel relieved… I feel peaceful.”
According to the 50-year-old, she will use her jail time to work on “pitching a new show.” She added:
“I have been so very successful – maybe that’ll be some time to work… There’s dancing in it!”
But don’t get it twisted! The owner of the Abby Lee Dance Company knows adjusting to prison life will be difficult, and will take some time.
“There’s a few physical limitations, dietary limitations [in prison], of course, but it’ll be OK… It’s a realm of the world I know nothing about. I just know what I know and I do the best I can.”
Overall, Miller is ashamed and extremely remorseful for her actions.
“I know that I didn’t make the right decisions all the time… I think [the punishment’s] just begun.”
Abby hopes to serve her sentence in Los Angeles where she currently resides.
