Abby Lee Miller's not letting her upcoming prison stint stop her from doing what she does best - cash TV paychecks. She had filed for bankruptcy in 2010.

"Ms. Miller was overwhelmed and under-equipped, and this led to her failure to respect to the bankruptcy process". The Dance Moms star is making the round and appearing on television and doing personal appearances in order to rake in some extra cash before she heads to the clink for a year and a day for bankruptcy fraud and concealing money from the U.S. government. Miller never had a good relationship with them because they usually got into arguments as seen in the dance reality show. Apparently said judge feels confident that she'll make it back as per their orders and that she won't pack a bag full of caftans and sensible sandals and hightail it for fairer shores. Also, the reality star was accused of stowing away $120,000 in luggage that she and her friends took on a trip out of the country in April 2014. She said keeping up with the bills in a down economy became hard. "I was not aware of that", Miller explained.

Miller, 50, will start serving her time behind bars next month - but not before making money talking about it.

The "Dance Moms" star was known for her brash behavior and pursuit of perfectionism from her dance students. She stated recently in an interview that she has a new scripted show in the works, and teased that it is where Dance Moms left off. "I have a new show and other things happening and if people are going to come visit me...at least they can come there". Critics of "Dance Moms" accuse Miller of being emotionally abusive toward the girls, and many episodes show her students dissolving into tears after a harsh critique. She has been running the studios herself for a number of years, and one would think that she would be able to temporarily pass the baton to someone else who might be able to do the work for Abby. Part of her sentence required her to pay $160,000 in fines.

When Miller was sentenced on Tuesday, she told the courtroom how sorry she was for what she did and how her name had been dragged through the mud.

"I was a 4-year contract with a 4-year option", she said.
