With months left to go in her prison sentence, Dance Moms coach Abby Lee Miller reveals she’s seriously struggling to cope behind bars.
The reality TV star plead guilty to concealing her assets during bankruptcy and not reporting an international monetary transaction last year. Authorities allege that the TV star hid as much as $775,000 of her money from appearing on Dance Moms, but Miller says her only mistake was “trusting other people with my money.”
In any case, the TV star was facing a year and a day behind bars in California’s Victorville prison last July, and revealed to The View‘s Jedediah Bila that she was “crying her eyes out” about the sentence.
Miller was stressing out about everything from losing access to her swimming pool, to being kept away from her wardrobe for a year. “I don’t know if they’re going to have a bra that fits me,” she said.
Miller also worried that she wouldn’t be able to keep up with her strict vegan diet behind bars. With the help of a gastric sleeve surgery and her diet, the dance coach had shed more than 30 pounds before going to prison.
“I don’t think there’s a salad bar and I doubt there’s going to be a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables,” she complained.
But after six months in the slammer, life in prison turned out to be totally different from what Miller expected.
