On Sunday, Abby Lee Miller announced that she will be resigning from her hit Lifetime show, Dance Moms.
Miller says she has been treated poorly over the past 7 seasons of the show and hasn’t been given the credit she deserves for her pieces along with being manipulated and disrespected “by men who never took a dance lesson in their loves and treat women like dirt!”
Miller announced her departure through an Instagram post.

The majority of children that follow me may be fast asleep, however now is the critical time to make the following statement: I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS. FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING – TO NO AVAIL! TODAY, I WAS SO PROUD THAT I WENT AGAINST THE PRODUCER'S IDEA (ONCE AGAIN) TO ENTER A COMMAND PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUMBERS… "WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?" ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS! I don't have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people's children successful! I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT! #dancemoms #season7 #ALDC #aldcalways #newbeginnings #aldcla #alllovedancecourage
Despite everything that is happening with Miller’s bankruptcy case, she says she is proud of what she did on Sunday.
Does this mean Dance Moms is done as well? I mean who could fill Abby Lee Miller’s shoes?
