Just When We Thought Things Couldn't Get Worse For 'Dance Moms', This Happens
Star instructor Abby Lee Miller has just followed mini-Sia's lead and quit the show too, proclaiming that she "will no longer take part in Dance Moms" and alleging that she's been constantly "disrespected" by the shows male producers who "treat women like dirt."
In an angry Instagram rant, the embattled Dance Company head honcho griped that, "for the past six years/seven seasons, I have asked, begged, even demanded creative credit for all the ideas, award-winning routines, themes, and costuming—to no avail."
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
"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," she continued. "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."
Miller's shock announcement comes as season 7B of the series wraps filming, and ahead of her sentencing hearing on fraud charges, which could see her face 2.5 years behind bars and up to $5 million in fines. Eep!
