In this week’s episode of Dance Moms, Abby Lee Miller is forced to deal with the fact that half of her team abandoned her for another company. The studio owner’s remaining dancers prepare to go head-to-head against Nia Frazier, Kendall Vertes, and the other girls who jumped ship following the 51-year-old’s run-in with the law.
When mom Ashlee Allen, who chose to stick with ALDC, asks Abby whether she plans to say anything to her former clients, the choreographer shakes her head. “I’ve made them so much money, I don’t even want to think about it,” she says.
Ashlee then asks, “Are you worried?,” to which Abby responds, “I’m worried about leotards going up butts” — confusing not only the moms, but us as well.
Understandably, Ashlee is concerned about the Pennsylvania native’s attitude. “Abby’s behavior is so weird. We’re going up against the teens that left the team, and Abby is doing her best to try to not let on how she feels about it, but I think she’s sad, honestly.”
As Life & Style previously reported, things fell apart for the dance company founder when she was indicted on bankruptcy fraud charges in October 2016. She pled guilty earlier this year and is currently serving a 366-day sentence at a jail in California.
