Abby Lee Miller is spending her finals days of freedom surrounded by friends.
ET’s Denny Directo caught up with the Dance Moms star at the MARVEL UNIVERSE LIVE! AGE OF HEROES red carpet premiere in Los Angeles on Saturday, where she opened up about life just four days before starting her 366 day prison sentence.
“Right now I just kind of want to enjoy some laughter and some fun,” Miller revealed of her current head space, adding that good friends will be keeping her company before she goes into serve her sentence.
“I have some friends coming out from Pittsburgh that have been with me through thick and thin for 20 years before the TV show, so they’re gonna come out and we’re just gonna maybe reminisce and laugh about the old times and talk about everyone we know and who might have all that money,” she shared. “Because it’s not me!”
Miller is expected to surrender to the FCI Victorville facility in Victorville, California, on Wednesday at 2 p.m. The reality star was found guilty of bankruptcy fraud in May in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and originally was ordered to turn herself in on June 30, but the date was pushed back.
In addition to serving time, Chief Judge Joy Flowers Conti also ordered Miller to pay a $40,000 fine and serve two years probation after her time behind bars. While on probation, she will need to live in a place “approved by the probation officer.”
Miller told ET on Saturday that she was nervous about several things before starting her sentence, but keeping the weight off after having gastric sleeve surgery wasn’t one of them.
“I’ll just have me to concentrate on and that’s different,” she explained. “I’ve always put everybody else’s child first before my own health, before my own outfit, before my own time frame. Everybody else was dressed and out the door and looking perfect and I was running around trying to find a clean towel to take a shower with, so I think this will be a little ‘me’ time.”
As for who will be going with her to surrender on Wednesday, Miller said her Dance Moms network, Lifetime, would be there.
“It wasn’t important to me, it was important to them,” she said. “I signed a four year contract.”
The dance coach did reveal, however, that she “might” find time to teach some dance in prison.
“I don’t really know! I have bad knees and a bad back and a lot of stuff. I’m worried about standing on cement for hours at a time, but we’ll see!”
