Yesterday we learnt that Dance Moms wasted NO time replacing Abby Lee Miller after she dramatically quit earlier this week.
Now, Abby has spoken out about US Dancing With The Stars pro Cheryl Burke taking her gig and, as expected, things got real shady.
"I am so excited that somebody else is going to get the experience to work with these a**holes," she said to Inside Edition about the show's producers. "[Burke] is skinny, hot. I'm sure they're going to fawn all over her."
"I think that's great…I only met her once at a housewarming party a couple weeks ago," Abby added to Entertainment Tonight. "I'm glad that someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on Dancing With The Stars is going to see what I've been working with for seven years. I don't think she's replacing me, I think it's going to be a different vibe."
Abby also reckons that her replacement will be treated better because, as she said earlier, Cheryl's "skinny, hot."
"Wait until Cheryl Burke deals with [no costume budget]…I bet you she's treated differently. I bet you the budget is completely different, and I bet you she is never driving her car, with her gas, getting parking tickets that she has to pay, walking up and down the streets looking for fabric on her feet."
And Abby wants to make it clear that she did NOT quit the show because of her potential jail sentence, it was the show runners' behaviour that convinced her to walk away.
"I chose to quit because I don't want to fight for a great idea, I don't want to fight for better music, I don't want to fight for a bigger costume budget," she dished. "[They] look at me like I was this down-and-out podunk dance teacher from Pittsburgh that they saved…I think the word 'respect,' the word 'trust,' and the word 'thank you' was missing from my relationship with the production company." Fair enough!
Do you guys think the show can survive without her??
