This past Monday, Abby Lee Miller, outrageous but teaching dance teacher from the infamous show, Dance Moms announced that she was quitting the show indefinitely. She stated, in all caps, that for every season she filmed she was not happy with the results that the producers were giving to her, and how she felt. The post has since been deleted now.

Entertainment Tonight got to interview Miller, exclusively about some new details of the new direction of the show and how she felt about the new change. The new star of the show will be none other than Cheryl Burke from Dancing With the Stars.
Miller explained how Burke will basically be in for a ride, with having to do for herself and the budget even changing for her because she is who she is.
“Wait until Cheryl Burke deals with [no costume budget]," she says. At Dancing With the Stars, they have two floors -- an entire building of seamstresses sewing, rhinestoning, fringe -- she's going to have to run downtown to Santee Alley and buy something off the street in her own car, at 4:30 in rush hour traffic after we wrap, when everything is closing, because that's what I did for six years….I bet you she's treated differently," she continues. "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..”
Some believe her rants of leaving and her walking off the show numerous times came from her having to face jail time, but Miller says that isn't true. The star says that she is just tired of having to fight for something like a “great idea” or “better music”, and that she was tired of feeling disrespected by the producers.
For now Burke has been filming since Wednesday and states that everything is going great and she loves working with such talented and passionate kids.
We hope everything works out in the end, and Burke might bring a new look to the show. You never know, but we wish both ladies good luck in their endeavors.
