Dance Moms' Abby Lee Miller reveals her future on the show is uncertain following fraud charges

Abby Lee Miller, the star of Dance Moms, is in some hot water with the legal system, but that didn’t stop her from enjoying the night at Elton John’s Oscar viewing party. Miller did answer a few questions about her fraud charges and admitted that it is taking a toll on her.

The reality star was indicted on bankruptcy fraud, concealment of bankruptcy assets and false bankruptcy declarations in October. She said, “It’s rough. It’s hard. My dad used to run my business and he did all the books and everything was great. It’s your family you trusted... they had your back.”

But after her dad stopped handling her money, the trouble really started. Miller explained, “Every person I hired after that was just one thing after another and you hire attorneys, you hire accountants, you hire your people, who are professional… maybe they don’t do their jobs as well as they’re supposed to."

The charges come with a maximum five-year sentence, which would be devastating for Miller and (less importantly) the Dance Moms show, which has been renewed for another season. When she was asked about her return to the show, she just responded, “I guess… I’ll have to see, but I’m not sure yet!”

Miller is not the first reality star to come under fraud indictments. Teresa Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey famously served time for the same kind of charges last year. It seems like a trend for regular people who find quick fame and fortune — they aren’t quite sure how to handle it and end up in these messy situations. While it is quite possible it has nothing to do with her fame, it’s easy to draw the parallels between all these reality stars and wonder if there’s something the networks could be doing about it.
