Abby Lee Miller: Getting Out of Prison THIS Month?!

Recently, we got a rare glimpse of Abby Lee Miller in prison. She was smiling brightly, appears to have lost some weight, and was surrounded by a few Dance Moms stars who were willing to visit her.

Abby Lee Miller is claiming that she’s a totally changed woman. Changed for the better, to be clear. With new plans for when she gets out.

She’s also hinting at the chance of an early release date. If that happens, she could get out soon. As in, this month.

Last year, Abby Lee Miller was sentenced to spend a year and a day in prison. That’s 366 days, folks, because the courts don’t let you wriggle out of fraud charges just because you’re on a reality show.

(The Giudices could tell you that much)

She is spending her sentence in Victorville, California, which is a not-very-far drive from her home. Even for a nonviolent offender, that strikes some people as incredibly lenient for a woman who was convicted on the opposite side of the country.

Her Instagram account continues to update with posts (though most are innocuous and, though inmates are often allowed time online, a lot of older celebrities have professionals who run their social media).

One new photo, however, caught people’s attention.

That’s Abby in prison, folks.

If she looks thinner, don’t worry that Abby Lee Miller is starving without her gourmet food. She got gastric sleeve surgery shortly before reporting to prison last July, so the weight loss was expected.

In the now-deleted captions of her now-deleted post, Abby wrote:

“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.”

In other words, she’s still only taking half-responsibility for what got her put in prison.

“My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace, the stories you read about me [being] a princess are untrue.”

She goes on to discuss how prison is really fun, actually.

“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.”

We’ll get to that line in a moment.

“All the press stories and speculation are not entirely correct however,”

Didn’t she just say that part? And then she hints at early release:

“I am feeling hopeful but no dates have been confirmed at this time.”

Finally, Abby writes:

“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).”

It’s great to hear that she’s a better person for this experience, though prison often has the opposite effect.

Then again, Abby Lee Miller became famous for traumatizing young girls on camera for a living. Some would point out that you can only go up from there.

Many people feel torn between sympathy and schadenfreude when it comes to Abby Lee Miller’s plight, but it’s always good to hear that someone is learning from an experience in order to become a better person.

So, you noticed how Abby was dropping that little nugget about early release while saying that nothing has been confirmed?

Entertainment Tonight reports that Abby Lee Miller may be released as early as February 20th. That’s this month. That’s less than three weeks, and significantly shy of July of 2018.

Still, nothing’s confirmed, and early release is never guaranteed.

Abby is reportedly eager to use her freedom to concentrate on her health, contemplating plastic surgeries and devoting more hours to “me time.”

We have to say that I’ll spend less time “helping” children and more time on myself isn’t what people usually say to convince people that they’ve changed for the better.

But most people aren’t Abby Lee Miller.

The Situation Pleads Guilty to Tax Fraud, Braces For Prison

Last week, we learned that Jersey Shore star Mike Sorrentino’s tax fraud case has turned into quite the situation.

(Sorry, but one of the many downsides of giving yourself a dumb nickname in your twenties is that people will throw it in your face for the remainder of your days.) 

We’ve known for several months that The Situation might be facing jail time in connection with trying to hide approximately $ 9 million in earnings from the IRS.

But now, things are really coming to a head, as Sorrentino has pled guilty to charges that could land him behind bars for up to 15 years.

As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports, Mike was in court on Friday entering his plea.

His attorney issued a statement in which he pled for clemency from the judge:

“The plea terms call for a balance between punishing the wrong committed and conditions that facilitate Mike living a productive, law-abiding life moving forward,” the statement reads.

“Following through on this plea agreement, Michael intends to pay restitution before sentencing.”

We’re not sure what the taxes on $ 9 million in earnings are like, but we’re guessing it amounts to a hell of a lot more than the freakin’ Situation is able to come up with on short notice.

Mike’s situation scenario is dire, but it could be a lot worse.

For example, his brother, who allegedly masterminded the tax evasion is facing a whopping 25 years in the slammer!

And don’t worry Shore fanatics–Mike has obtained permission to temporarily relocate to Miami in order to participate in the show’s reunion, which is currently filming.

We don’t know about you, but this story is causing us some seriously mixed emotions.

On the one hand, the fact that The Sitch earned so much money that he thought he’d be able to hide $ 9 million makes us want to bang our heads into the wall until we stop feeling feelings.

On the other hand, his effort to bilk Uncle Sam proved woefully unsuccessful, which kind of reaffirms our faith in both the justice system and karma.

(Dude was often on colossal d-bag on Shore.)

On the … third hand (?) Mike has provided us with hours of entertainment over the years, and the thought of dude spending a decade and a half behind bars is undeniably a bummer.

This is real human drama here, folks.

Frankly, we’re starting to think MTV should Jersey Shore: Family Vacation on hold so they can start production on an 18-hour docu-drama about the story of the Sitch.

Abby Lee Miller: Greetings from Prison! I Still Suck!

Abby Lee Miller has clearly not yet been rehabilitated.

The self-centered former Dance Moms host has not only shared an update of her life behind bars with fans…

… but she’s also shared a photo of herself and some inmates in prison.

Several months after she whined about the food she’ll have to eat in the clink, while also claiming she may be killed, Miller posted a lengthy caption on Instagram yesterday.

It shot down various Internet rumors; it bragged about her weight loss; and it made apparent that the choreographer/bully is yet to learn the concept of “personal responsibility.”

“Sometimes in life you make mistakes. I trusted the wrong people and didn’t pay any attention to things I should of,” said Miller to open her statement.

This has been a constant theme of the star’s ever since she pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud in 2016.

“I’m more than sorry for the mistakes I have made,” she said again here, but really we all know what she’s implying:

It wasn’t my fault!

Continued Miller:

“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.”

Just a general note:

Any time someone goes out of his or her way to say he or she did something with “grace,” chances are they did not do so.

Miller has been sentenced to 366 days in the slammer for her role in a scheme that involved hiding her assets from the government.

She did not report a great deal of income she earned from various personal appearances, despite the law requiring her to do so.

After admitting to her culpability in court, Miller quit Dance Moms about a year ago in a classic Instagram rant, lashing out at producers for the way she was treated.

She has never come across as a very nice person.

“All the press stories and speculation are not entirely correct however, I am feeling hopeful but no dates have been confirmed at this time,” Miller wrote on Sunday, referring to rumors that she would be released early.

She added:

“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.”

The 51-year old ex-Lifetime personality was sentenced in May 2017 for bankruptcy fraud, specifically for bringing $ 120,000 worth of Australian currency into the United States without reporting it.

She was also ordered to two years of supervised release and fined $ 40,000 along with a $ 120,000 judgment.

Miller began serving her time at the Victorville, California, federal prison in July.

If she is not granted an early release, she will be a free woman once again in July of this year.

Look for her to instantly try to cash in from her jail sentence at that time, granting many interviews and trying to get back on television in any way she can.

She really does suck a whole lot in our opinion.
