Abby Lee Miller Quits Dance Moms on Instagram, Says Producers Treat Women Like Dirt
Abby Lee Miller has quit Dance Moms as sensationally as she used to carry herself on the show. The show was focused on Miller’s dance school, Abby Lee Dance Company based in Pittsburgh and has aired 7 seasons now since 2011.
The show is airs on Lifetime and is centered on a troupe of young spirited dancers instructed by Miller. The 50-year-old dance coach quit the show through a post on Instagram posted late Sunday night. The post was really a rant about her unfair treatment by the show’s management. In the post, written in all caps, Miller says that she has done everything in the 7 seasons of the show to get the producers to credit her creative input as well as pay her for it but in vain.
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
In the post, Miller goes on to say that she is tired of being used, manipulated and disrespected by men who know nothing about dancing and treat women like filth. Her scathing rant, however, was clear on her stand about the young dancers that she works with. In it, she cites her dedication to develop young talents all through her life and adds that working with children is not a problem to her.
With season 7 of the show scheduled for shooting, the saga will have to go on without Miller. In a bid to fill Miller’s position, the production went and got celebrity choreographer Laurieann Gibson. The choreographer has filmed with the cast for 3 weeks and it is still undecided on whether she will take over choreography for the last four episodes of season 7. It is still uncertain if the decision to quit stands as this is not the first time Miller has gone online to throw a temper tantrum about the show.
Abby Lee Miller’s exit from the show comes as she faces an impending sentence after pleading guilty to bankruptcy fraud charges. This among other charges could send her to jail for up to 5 years even though her lawyers are working on a plea bargain to get her off in two.
At the end of the outburst, Miller put up the hashtag “#newbeginnings” indicative of her willingness to quit the show for good. It really seems to be over for good now. According to a source on the show, this would be a well-deserved fresh start as Miller has had a lot to deal with-what with the court case and Maddie Zigler’s scathing book.
