Abby Lee Miller recently announced her unexpected exit as the "Dance Moms" Season 7 host in a lengthy message on her Instagram account. Now that she left the reality television series, Lifetime gets the service of the "Dancing with the Stars" pro Cheryl Burke as the show's guest choreographer.
Miller's announcement has been made after she finished filming "Dance Moms" Season 7. But, as the 50-year-old choreographer is often busy, her schedule didn't permit to do more episodes. Thus, the seventh chapter has fewer episodes than usual.
With the coming of Burke as the new "Dance Moms" Season 7 choreographer, Lifetime ordered more episodes of the show. The production company allowed Collins Avenue Entertainment to add up a few extra days of filming along with the television series' new host, Deadline reported.
It has been known that "Dance Moms" Season 7 often has guest choreographers as its standard practice when Miller is busy doing other things. Other dance instructors that have been in the show are Debbie Allen, Travis Payne, Aisha Francis and Laurieann Gibson.
To recall, Miller surprised everyone when she posted her resignation in "Dance Moms" Season 7 in a lengthy post on Instagram. The dance instructor revealed that the show's producers have no respect towards her that ignited her to leave.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Miller also talked about "Dance Moms" Season 7 new host, Burke. The choreographer admitted that she has no hard feelings toward the "Dancing with the Stars" pro and even thinks that she will be a great host and dance instructor.
Miller revealed that she just recently met Burke in a housewarming party and she's glad that someone who has worked on the same dance series is going to take her role. "Someone who has worked on a network show for as long as she has on 'Dancing with the Stars' is going to see what I've been working with for seven years," she said.
Miller also added that with Burke's history in "Dancing with the Stars," people in "Dance Moms" Season 7 will surely treat her much better than her. She, too, believes that Lifetime will give more budgets to the show for the new host.
