The last Dance Moms season to feature Abby Lee Miller has just kicked off and the ~controversial~ teacher is still making life difficult for her students and, of course, their mamas!
The season was filmed just before the loud-mouthed lady went to prison for bankruptcy fraud and tax evasion and let us tell you, she went out with a BANG.
“What’s always the source of the drama? It’s Abby,” Christi Lukasiak, 40, told PEOPLE.
“She’s a strong personality and it’s difficult to stand up to her.”
She adds: “I think the moms have all gotten a lot of slack like, ‘Why do you put up with this?’ and ‘You’re just doing this for the wrong reasons'".
“I’m really proud to say I’ve watched women I’ve known for a long time stand up and say, ‘You know what? We’re not doing this anymore.’”
Chloe and her mama Christi return to the show after Zayning years ago due to creative differences with Abby.
“I really didn’t even think I was leaving [season 4]. I figured we would go back the next season, and then I left and I never came back,” Chloe admits. “It felt very unfinished for me, I needed closure.”
“It was a little bit difficult at first because our schedules were super grueling and we really didn’t see each other a lot,” Chloe confesses. “Unfortunately, we fell out of touch whenever I left, and she left and we all did our own thing.”
“I was always the one to say it’s just dance, it’s just competition,” Chloe says.
Who's ready for one last season of Abby dramz!?
