Abby Lee Miller Has Meltdown At Audition, Lashes Out On Staff For Low Turnout
Has Abby Lee Miller’s bubble burst? The Dance Moms star had a meltdown during an audition when barely anyone showed up to try out for her studio.
Sources told OK! Magazine that the dance teacher showed up three hours late for an audition on August 4 at the DanceMakers of Atlanta studio where she was casting hopeful dancers for her show.
“She burst through the doors looking worse for the wear,” the insider said, adding she nearly lost it when she saw the poor turnout.
“She started belittling her entire staff and blaming the studio owners for not publicizing the event enough because only 11 girls showed up to try out,” the spy said. “Then she headed to the salon next door to get a blowout and her makeup done.”
But according to the witness, her diva ways still persisted even while she was away at the salon, forcing the contestants to purchase Abby Lee Miller dance wear.
“The girls at the audition were told by a production staffer that Abby appreciated it more if they tried out wearing clothes from her signature line. The prices were then jacked up three times what they normally were,” the source said.
Abby has been on a quest for the next rising star, which will be documented when Dance Moms returns to Lifetime on Sept. 6, after Maddie Ziegler left the studio.
Miller has also come under fire for her legal woes, having pled guilty for 20 counts of fraud. She will be tried in October and can face up to 30 months behind bars.
