“Lifetime is a little in arrears on their payment plan with me personally,” she told ET. “And so I think that will have to be taken care of first before we talk about season six.”

On the first half of season five, viewers watched the dance teacher miss rehearsals and competitions while her students were in Los Angeles. She confessed that she’ll be absent even more during the second half of the season, which premiered on June 9. “There was an altercation at one of the competitions," she said. "The producer threw me out! So I left and I didn't come back… There's about one episode that I just wasn't there for. And I thought, 'You know what? If they can do it without me, do it without me.'"

Although Abby wouldn’t get into specifics about why the producer threw her out, she did blame the mothers. “The mothers just kept riding me, riding me, riding me – about class, about the kids taking class – which was a complete joke to me,” she said. “For the first three seasons of the show, I had to fight with production every single day about the kids getting back into their normal classes, about them disrupting my classes at my studio."

Abby even revealed that the show has affected her business for the worse! "Kids left because of the crew, and stepping on their bags and pushing them out of the way and all those things," she explained. "The kids on the show need to take class, need to continue training… nothing is more important to me than them being in class."
