‘Dance Moms’ News 2015: Will Abby Lee Miller Get Fired From Lifetime Because Of Her Fraud Charges? [VIDEO]
Abby Lee Miller might have millions of young fans from around the world because of her hit reality television show, Dance Moms, but is she really a good role model? That's what fans can't help but wonder as there is speculation that the controversial dance instructor might get the boot from Lifetime as Miller is facing five years in prison for bankruptcy fraud charges.
Already being dubbed as the "new Teresa Giudice," who is also serving a one-year sentence for her multiple counts of fraud, Miller has so far received no word from Lifetime on whether or not she is coming back for a sixth season of their show.
After being asked about her future and if she's returning to the show, Miller responded to one of her fans on Twitter by simply saying, "As soon as Lifetime tells me I'll tell you all!"

Many of her followers couldn't help but comment with, "Probably will be after 5 years in prison since you claimed fraud lol. She'll view it from jail," along with, "Well now that she's looking jail time maybe no more show. Another reality star show gone."
ABC News says that the controversial reality television star was hit with 20 counts of fraud for allegedly trying to hide her income when she declared bankruptcy back in 2010. That year Miller filed a petition to reorganize her Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania studio, the Abby Lee Dance Company.
U.S. Attorney David J. Hickton reports that Miller opened up bank accounts to hide more than $755,000 she made from her reality show and merchandising. Abby also didn't report some of the money she made to the IRS and lied on financial reports.
So far Miller has not made any comments about the fraud charges.
