Who is that?! Disgraced ‘Dance Moms’ star Abby Lee Miller just shared a pic from prison and she look so different! Take a peek!
It’s been a little while since we’ve heard from Abby Lee Miller. The 51-year-old former Dance Moms has been in prison for months for bankruptcy fraud but on Sunday, Jan. 21, she wowed fans by sharing a candid of herself getting a visit from friends and we have to say… she looks different in the best possible way! Clearly the onetime dance instructor has lost a serious amount of weight since heading to prison in July of 2017. In addition to what has to be a change in diet and a busy workout schedule, Abby has been able to slim down thanks to gastric sleeve surgery. She underwent the procedure in 2017, one that reduced her stomach “by 80 percent” according to Entertainment Tonight. That means Abby’s stomach has been shrunk down from the “size of a football to the size of a banana.”
This is a serious medical procedure and one that left Abby hurting afterwards. “I’m in pain, not gonna lie,” she told Entertainment Tonight while lying in a recovery bed following the 45-minute surgery, performed by Dr. Michael Russo at the Smart Dimensions Surgical center. “Kind of in my mid-section, but it’s not a burning pain. It’s not a throbbing pain. It’s just kind of a discomfort.” Well, it’s clearly had a huge impact as she looks almost like a completely different person! Head here for more photos of Abby.
“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,” she captioned the new pic of herself. “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.”
The former reality star, who was sentenced to a year and a day in May 2017, went on to hint that she hopes to be released early but hasn’t gotten a date yet. “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).”
