The studio owner, who is now in the middle of a fraud case, explained that she couldn't keep going back to the "detrimental" environment. When asked if she would come back once the dust settles, Miller said, "Well the dust is not going to settle until that producer is dead and they cremate him and the dust is there". "They want me to come to meetings, pre-production, but on my own dime", Abby Lee Miller continued.
'It's about the respect. Every five years I could have done the show. "I just want somebody to say, 'Wow, you've done a great job'".
The TV personality, 51 - who in a heated Instagram post announced her abrupt exit from the series after seven seasons on Monday, March 27 - sat down with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday to discuss the aftermath of her departure and Burke's new role.
"No, no, no", Miller told ET's Nischelle Turner when asked if she was prepared to serve time, wiping away tears. They manipulated me, and they just got in my head and you just get to the point where you just do it because you can't argue anymore.
It got to the point where it was affecting Miller's mental health, striving her to make the sudden decision to quit. "I believe my attorneys in Pittsburgh have hired someone that prepares you, that prepares you mentally, physically, everything". "It's bad. There's no privacy, there's no respect". Or did Dance Moms last so long just because of Miller's evil and shocking behavior towards the moms and students? According to Abby, the producers ignored her demand for "creative credit for all the ideas, award winning routines, themes and costuming".
'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 The Children Gone?' Along with three lovely solos! "I think there's a lot more to it, there's a lot more moving parts to this case ... like I teach my kids, life is not fair".
"I'm not a real physical person so. you know. we'll see", she added.
Miller was accused of attempting to hide $775,000 in income after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
But Ashlee is leaving for an entirely different reason, according to TMZ.
