For seven seasons, the girls of Dance Moms have been charming their way into our hearts.
With their grand jetés and pirouettes, words of wisdom and of course their ever so supportive teacher: Miss Abby Lee Miller.
Throughout the seasons, we’ve seen Miller as the dictionary definition of tough love, and a role model both positively and negatively. But she has done great things for these girls and throughout all of the controversy, we can’t deny that. I mean, who would’ve heard of Maddie Ziegler if it wasn’t for Abby Lee Miller.
But speaking of controversy, Miller has landed herself in some legal trouble, pleading guilty to 20 counts of fraud and and her hearing is set for the beginning of 2017. She could face jail time as well as a pretty hefty fine.
And to kick her while she’s down, amidst the things Miller has going on in her personal life, there is talk that Dance Moms might be ending after season 7.
Miller’s Instagram post did make it seem that these rumors could be true.

I thought this routine was amazing, a bittersweet Victory! Incredible job girls! 5 years of my life, seven seasons on TV in 130 Countries – I did my best for Lifetime and gave my all to the production of Dance Moms! Thank you for the many wonderful opportunities and the valuable lessons I learned. @brynn.rumfallo @kendallvertes @camrynbridges @kalanihilliker @niasioux @gmartello22 @ddkaz #aldcalways
Do you think it’s really over? Or is Miller just being nostalgic? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Dance Moms airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Lifetime.
