Abby Lee Miller is making the most of her time behind bars. The Dance Moms alum, who was sentenced to 366 days in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud, shared her first photo from prison — and it appears she has lost weight.
“Sometimes in life you make mistakes I trusted the wrong people and didn’t pay any attention to things I should of. I’m more than sorry for the mistakes I have made,” Miller began in a lengthy post on Sunday, January 21, via Instagram. “My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace, the stories you read about me been a princess are untrue. I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I’ve tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience.”
She continued, “All the press stories and speculation are not entirely correct however, I am feeling hopeful but no dates have been confirmed at this time. I am feeling great and ready to turn over a new leaf thank you so much to everyone for your support especially my nearest and dearest I love you all ❤️ ( and yes this is me in prison )
