It’s the moment Dance Moms fans have been waiting three seasons for! In a sneak peek from the Sept. 19 episode, Christi Lukasiak — who left the show with her daughter Chloe in Season 4 — comes into contact with Abby Lee Miller for the first time since their gigantic falling out.
“I do not trust her near me. I’m here to watch my daughter dance. I’m not here to go to prison,” Christi tells the ALDC moms in the video. “My worst fear of all time would be if she would have me arrested today and I would somehow be incarcerated and end up as her roommate.”
When Abby sees that Christi is in the room, she avoids her by going in a different entrance. Based on the clip, it looks like the OG cast member has made up with her one-time cast members after lashing out at the women a few weeks ago for failing to support Chloe after she quit the series.
In a confessional, the 40-year-old admitted that she regretted her outburst. “I truly hate myself a little bit right now for losing control. Those women bring out the best in me, don’t they?” she teased. “Dude, I haven’t screamed at anyone in three years. Here I am, three seconds in, and I’m like a raging maniac.”
Chloe originally opened up to People magazine about her decision to leave the popular show, admitting that it had to do with Abby’s mean comments about her slightly smaller right eye, which was caused by a condition called silent sinus syndrome (she has since had surgery to help correct the issue). “The reason for leaving the show was my old teacher mocked my eye very bluntly; I was dealing with some serious health issues,” the 16-year-old shared. “[My exit] was very abrupt and I didn’t expect to leave obviously. But after that happened my mom and I just kind of talked about it and it didn’t seem right to go back.”
Tune in to the new episode of Dance Moms on Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime.
