Abby Lee Miller previously said she planned to get through her prison sentence by pretending the entire year (plus one day) was all just a movie, but it seems the reality of her situation is now setting in. In fact, in a new interview, she says she thinks she “probably won’t survive” prison.
Just days before starting her sentence for bankruptcy fraud last week, Miller sat down with Jedediah Bila for an emotional one-on-one interview, during which she admitted she “made lots of mistakes.” In a preview of the interview on The View Tuesday, Bila revealed that there were a lot of tears while Miller discussed the children she mentored on Dance Moms, the crime she committed, and her looming jail time.
“I probably won’t survive,” Miller said in a shaky voice, tears streaming down her face. At other points in the interview, she admitted she “panicked” and stated, “I’m doing the time. I am taking the blame.”
Miller previously told ET that she plans to get through her time in jail by merely following the rules, but it seems like she’s worried that even that won’t be enough in the end.
You’ll be able to see Miller’s full interview when it airs next Tuesday at 9pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
